Amy, that story is priceless!! Silly pony didn't realize he would NEVER get dinner after that move!!
I have been enjoying seeing everyone's pictures and updates. I still haven't been in a saddle. Dream came in with a new injury last week, so is back on antibiotics and is unrideable. This wound is on her hock, so I am anxious about its long-term implications to her soundness. It does not appear to involve the joint itself currently.. but if its a kick like I suspect, it may still be a problem up the road. So that has sidelined her for the short term at the very least.
Meanwhile, I am continuing my work with Gamer. This is the closest to riding a horse I am getting: leaning on Gamer - YouTube
So while she is progressing, part of me is regretting my decision to take her, as we realized she
is what is injuring Dream.
Dream is currently out by herself in a small paddock while she is healing, but I am not sure what we are going to do long-term to prevent future injuries. Gotta love horses.
I hope to be back in the saddle for real this weekend, on George. With Dream being benched, I will be taking him to next weekend's Brookfield CTR as a prep for July's Vermont 100. Would be awesome to have both boys finish their first 100 together. So while I am very disappointed about Dream, I am trying to focus on the positive. I am very lucky to have another horse to be to ride while Dream heals.
