Biscuit pretty much is a saint but had I done all of that swishing around his head from the ground he would not have liked it. Kellie and I were remarking on that very thing. He couldn't care less about that stuff going on from the saddle!!!

Dawn, glad you are feeling better. I came off a horse almost 5 years ago when I decided to get a horse after a 26 years. OMG my leg was black/blue/purple/fuschia from the hip to the foot. And swelled up like twice its normal size. It wasn't pretty and my leg is still discolored from it. Hope you and Gamer can bond tightly soon. She sounds scared poor thing!!!

Today was not good - Mom was sent by ambulance to the ER and not my cousin's ER. I am not a fan of the hospital they took her to. She was a little incoherent and disoriented this morning. Thank Goodness it was just a urinary tract infection and too many meds from her hospital stay. She was released around 1:30 and I spent the rest of the day at her house until 9:30 PM. She was greatly improved. She is not a fan of doctors and hospitals Say some prayers for her - my brother in law said it was his prayers that healed her this morning! He is a character!

This was from getting kicked/stepped on? Could easily be a bone bruise ("periosteal hematoma" in med-speak) in addition to muscle bruising. I've had them (from getting hit by a car), and they also take longer to heal than regular muscle bruises.

I hope you leg is better soon Dawn. Bummer about the set back with Gamer. Some horses just need a longer time to adjust to changes. She was doing so well, and she will again

Denise that video scared the heck out of me! I was swatting my leg with you in the video. Blech. I hate spiders!! Drifter is so tall that he sometimes runs me into them. Gah its not pretty.

Hang in there Dawn! She will come back around. Yall just both need some time to finish healing :)

It felt GREAT today when I got off work so I decided to take Drifter for a short ride since he was cleared by the vet Friday. He was such a butt!! He tried to bolt back home and knocked me against a trailer in his haste to get there. I was seeing fire so I took him right where he wanted to go. I marched him into his pasture, left the saddle on and exchanged the bridle for a halter/leadrope and we did work right there. I was wary of pushing him too hard because of the tweaked ligament but he got up into a sweat. Then I put his bridle back on and we tried a trail ride again. He was much happier to be away from the barn that time. I guess he just needed a little reminder.

Whiskey is officially in a small paddock! Yay! I let him hang out wiht Drift for a bit while I got their feed ready. The barn cat had been resting on the fence and all of a sudden I heard her holler. I walked out of the tackroom to see what was up and she was covered in slobber like a horse had licked her and she was knocked off the rail and standing on the ground. I went in and picked her up to check her over. She was fine. But I think this picture shows who the guilty party was

DriftingShadow - I am not scared of them per se but certainly don't want to be stung by one either! Kellie and I rode Sunday morning for a little more than 7 miles and I did quiet a bit of jogging/trotting and at the end Biscuit and I cantered! Woot!! I enjoyed my ride so much.

Here is an entire wall of spiders - their webs were gorgeous.

And here is my cousin's gorgeous horse Elan kissing me up for a treat.

Biscuit was a little leery of me Sunday morning but I was able to catch him in the little corral. I don't know what his problem is but it is annoying as all get out. Once you catch him he is an angel. Kellie said the man that had broke Biscuit was roping off of him so I guess that is why he couldn't care less about me swinging a crop all over the place. I went out to the barn this morning and he refused to come in. I walked out to the pasture and got him to take one treat from me but he refused the other treat and walked away. I went back to the front and he finally came up there and after a bit took ONE treat but walked off. I went back this evening and he came up easily and gobbled up treats. Kellie said he was bi-polar

We had to return my mom to the hospital today. She will be transported tomorrow to MD Anderson for a biopsy of the mass on her pancreas. Please remember her in your prayers - it is coming at me from all sides. My uncle, her brother, is very ill and in the hospital awaiting surgery in Houston. Poor fellow has a fistula from his colon to his bladder . My cousin called today and said "my patient is not doing very well Niecie" I am very close to my uncle and his children. My hubby is having a biopsy in Houston Wednesday morning for a mass in his intestines. Ugh...it is raining and pouring on me right now so prayers would be appreciated.

QOS, Elan looks so sweet. What a little piggie.

My thoughts are with you... I hope everything turns out ok.

Update on all of my patients. Mom was transported Tuesday to St. Luke's in Houston. Her brother was 4 floors up awaiting surgery so my cousins were there too, and it was very nice to see them. My uncle had surgery Wednesday afternoon and is holding his own poor soul. He had to have a colostomy and stints in the tubes coming from the kidneys. He has the same funky blood condition my mom has that gives them sky high tryglycerides. Mom had the biopsy yesterday. It is a hard mass instead of bloody as reported before. First thought was it was just a cyst he could aspirate. He was able to biopsy but not aspirate. We will know Monday what the biopsy says. Barry's procedure was also on Wednesday. We go back to his doctor next Wednesday. Poor fellow - he is down to 143 lbs and is just a little rack of bones. I had to come home with him as I have a wedding cake this weekend...my riding buddy/cousin's son is getting married. I will return early Monday morning and stay until they decide on the course for mom's situation. My 2 sisters are still there with my 3rd sister returning home today. Please keep praying for my family. It is raining and pouring on me.

I did get out to see my horses and give them treats. It comforts me just to pet their faces and kiss them up. Horses are good for our souls.

I finally got out and did a little 2 mile ride. My horse was terrible. Between the flies, the fact that she hasn't been ridden, and the her being in flaming heat, she just was not good. I was very discouraged today. She bucked, reared slightly, balked, shook her head, and generally acted like a jerk. Nobody got hurt, but no fun was had either. Dang mare.
