It's been days since I updated this journal. Busy, busy, I've been. Shows and injuries and rain and spring breaks.
Starting with springs breaks... I've been enjoying mine, even though I've only ridden a few times.
In my defense, it's been rainy.
I went to a show Saturday with Ashley. She brought Cody and her reiner Hunny (who's a bitchy!mare). I scoped out some classes. Next show, I'm thinking of bringing Baby Girl and doing English equitation (since it's not judged on the horse), trail, halter, and showmanship, as well as showing Cody in a few 19 and under classes.
A few days ago, Baby Girl got her leg cut up in the pasture. I thought it was minor and failed to mention it, but it's grown to be a problem and is developing proud flesh due to my sucky horse care (I left her for two days and didn't clean it). I picked the scab and got it to bleed again, cleaning it out. I bought one medicine from Tractor Supply that is suppose to work miracles. This thing isn't developing proud flesh if I have anything to say about it. Lesson learned: Clean wounds everyday. Why must lessons be learned the hard way...
Despite her wound, we managed a little walking trail ride, to stay up on our Ps and cues.
