Oh my gosh!! CAROLINE!! That's hilarious! I can't believe I didn't think of that!!! I'm laughing so hard! GOOD ONE.
GUYYYYYYSSSSSSSS. So MANY things.
1. Lacey went all lame again. That was a bummer situation UNTIL I realized that what was bothering her was a slight flare in her hoof that was adding undue pressure to the inside of her left front pastern = where that old injury of hers was/is.
I guess the hoof trimmer must have just missed it last trim/didn't back it up enough..
In any case, I was able to really back up her toe on that side and take off the flare [with my rasp] and she was noticeably sounder within minutes. And she was sounder today than she was yesterday so I think I'm on the right track.
I'm so glad I spent that year trimming her! Even though I don't usually trim her anymore, I love that I have that insider knowledge of what kind of trim Miss L needs and I know how to perform said trim myself.
Anyway, hopefully, now that she's back on the road to soundness, we'll be able to go for a ride this week. It's supposed to be really nice tomorrow..hopefully that works out.
2. OH MY GOSH GUYS.
Stuff, a lot of stuff, went down with NG tonight.
So you know how last week was weird?
First, HE REMEMBERED THE NAMES OF THE CLASSES I WAS TAKING and asked about them by name. SO CUTE.
This week, all my usual pew-buddies were MIA. So I said to NG "Can I sit with you, or you sit with me? Otherwise I'm gonna be all alone.." And he immediately, like he was relieved or something, said sure and asked where I was sitting.
Then once we were sitting down and chatting, he told me that he was trying to get a group together to watch the Kentucky Derby at the local racetrack and that I should come. HA. I appreciate planning ahead. 2 months ahead though, really?
This guy, he makes me laugh so much.
But he told me that he remembered how I hadn't ever been to the races and he feels like it should, as a horse person, be on my bucket list. hahaha
Accidentally I think I came across as less stoked about it than I meant to come across as - you know, the whole "oh cooool....." disparaging thing and he seemed a little put out. So I said something about how I was bummed we never did anything this term and he told me basically that he was in class when I had told him I was available, but that next term his schedule was better and we'd "have to do something." [why didn't he TELL me this?? But whatever, he's a dude. And I'm not taking it personally.]
Then, later, as we were walking out of church, I asked him what he was doing this week. He told me that he wasn't really doing anything and that he found that super frustrating.
....annnnnnd I invited him to go to the zoo with Gman and that other friend on Thursday.
And from his reaction, he might actually come!
Gman is thrillllled: "GOOD! That'll save you from going alone with him. We'll check him out and approve/deny him :)"
And my other friend is real stoked too.
I hope NG comes...It's hard to really figure someone out when you only see them for an hour, or two, once a week and talk to them for maybe 15 minutes each time. I mean, I like who he is in that short amount of time...but even super annoying people aren't so bad if you only talk to them for 15 minutes...
So hopefully he comes.
And I REALLY want Gman to meet this guy and tell me his opinion. So it could be good all around.
AND! Inviting NG to the zoo with us GOT HIM TO ASK ME FOR MY PHONE NUMBER!! Finally
So hopefully that means he might really like to come. I'll text him on Tuesday or Wednesday to find out for sure. Unless he texts me first? haha We'll see.
I hope you guys are well!!!
