Seems first it was the rain, then the severe cold (for Oregon), then one person sick after another, and so on. When I was going out riding it seemed it would only follow with not being able to ride again for two weeks so, I am always feeling like I am starting over! I hate it!
Should I just wait?............ take what I can?............ What, what??!! LOL.
I guess I am starting to feel sorry for myself because I really am not feeling well and I look outside and think...........I could be this or that. We also bought a horse trailer that we are working on and that has been delayed also.
So, anyone want to join my pitty party?????
It is easy to put off working a horse. Waiting for less wind, cooler or warmer weather, time of day when there are less bugs, after lunch and so on and then all of the sudden the day is shot.
So I decided that the horse was going to come 1st and today when it was a nice warm 16 degrees and I thought I will mess on the computer 1st. I told myself no, work the horse 1st and then mess around. It worked and I am glad I did.
I also like to have goals like working towards some shows. I also thought my horse was deathly ill and I regretted not having worked her more to her potential. When we finally got the correct diagnosis and I realized she was not going to be permenantly ill I am taking this second chance to work her to her potential and she is my priority.
