And We're Right Back on Track!

Finally made it to the chiropractor after the long weekend working in boarding. My left hip was 2" higher than my right hip. His comment was, "Holy... How the hell did you do this?" My response, "I sneezed, 3 times." You know you're out of shape and getting tubby when... I felt so much better than I did during my 4 hour shift in surgery, good thing it was mainly feline dentals, KILL ME! I decided to not call out of my second shift and go to work, not that there was much to do during our power outage. Fun times at NAH! Anyone got a flashlight so I can draw a 3cc syringe out of this border collie's black leg? Thanks...

So today was my day off and because of K being deathly ill, Kubby (K+hubby... hahaha, I'm so NOT witty) decided that he'd show up at 530am to feed ponies (today and yesterday), then text me as I was getting dressed or in my car to drive over to feed. He cleaned stalls too which was sweet of him (that lucky girl). But after two days of not getting up at 5 to go and feed ponies and nuzzle faces and hear their morning nickers... I have a complex. So I texted him and said thank you thank you thank you, but spend your day off tomorrow taking care of your wifey and I'll do ponies. I told K and she laughed, I wasn't trying to be mean, I did kind of enjoy sleeping until 830 this AM but it's just you know... I'm a routine kind of girl and if I don't get my morning kisses it's not the same! <3

After I made it to the barn to finish up some stuff and throw some hay, I grabbed the pup and headed down to Cherry Croft to have lunch with the Ol' Girls and their ponies. I got to see my pony-kids and give them kisses as they were being seen by my old vet who put LB down two years ago. We talked about it a little and it was really nice to see him. Had lunch, talked to CB and the BO a bit about Brantley and his abscess... And my concussion, then took some video of Gigi cantering around. She's getting to be such a nice horse!

The big conversation of the day was about the upcoming Open Schooling show at a the County Stables down by CC. Deb had seen the flyer at Melody when she came by a couple of weeks ago and her and Bon got together and decided to do Adult W/T with the kids. I had requested the day off to take B but with recent events and him still being lame I decided that I would just focus on the children and be a groom. That's until Bon got this whole idea together that if I went and rode B today (which I haven't ridden in probably a month now) and he was good, they'd pick him up Friday and he'd spend the night at CC then they'd take two trips and bring him to the show.

Lo 'n behold...



Look who feels great today! W/T/C with a bit and his new breastplate <3 K.

Apparently while we were all sick and dying and broken... Brantley blew another small abscess (same foot) in his frog while out and about in his paddock. Go figure? No wrapping, icky-icthammol, diaper-wrapping bullshit needed. He felt great, lazy, but great.

Green Horse Open?!
HERE WE COME!

ERRMAGURD! HURSHOW? WTF?!
