    Right you are! I still am right legged so it's tough (I still gotta sit to put my jeans on. ) so put all my weight on my left leg. I'm not nearly as agile as I used to be, either, and he almost got me.

    Broke my femur, left hip, left forearm, and left wrist.
    When I do it, I do it good. lol

    I just go the A-OK to start walking (with a cane, which actually would helped me today across young Khade's butt ) and to stay away from the horses BBUUUUTT.... That's not going to happen.

    Gawd I guess...you don't mess around!!! Geez!
    Sounds like you are on the mend if you are whooping ponies with your walking device! LOL! Glad to hear you are on the mend, and hope you get healed up!!!
    (I wouldn't stay away from the horses either, probably the only thing that keeps your sanity if your laid up)

    He keeps it up he's going to get one HECK of a "love pat" back.
    It would be like that movie "Ghost." Harder you hit, the more you love.

    Sorta back on topic - I do have two mares that love their butts being patted. Like honestly. LOL
    Maybe it's a mare thing, lol- my sister's mare loves butt pats too. When I walk into the pen and stop to scratch her forehead, she just sighs and moves until I'm scratching her butt instead, lol. It's always interesting to explain to people that she's not going to kick them, she just wants a butt pat. I have never encountered a gelding who liked butt pats though.

    Maybe because last time someone went down there they lost something precious.

    Oh, I'm on the mend! Been a LONG four months but things are starting to finally look good! I'll play with ponies, but I'll go along with the no riding this once. Until May. LOL
    This is the first time I broke a bone that wasn't horse related, actually. Oh, except when I flipped my quad and broke my collar bone. Or ran into a wall and broke my toe.
    This time it was purely mechanical. And first and last, hopefully! lol
