I have gone out to clean up the boys and do some odds and ends such as filling supplement packets. However I haven't ridden since I returned. I had lent out my saddle to a friend while I was away and I just got it back last night after I saw the guys. I anticipate riding this weekend.
That is, assuming my foot is ok. Ollie had a troubled moment in the cross ties when a dog came zipping by. The dog startled him and he jumped into my lap for protection. His front left hoof came crashing down on my right foot. SPLAT! I bravely walked it off. Ollie knew he messed up and had immediately jumped off me and gave me that "I didn't mean to step on you!" look. I went to one of those clinics to have it x-rayed. Thankfully, no broken bones but it's purple and swollen beyond recognition. I'm hopeful that the swelling will go down and I'll be back at it over the weekend. I did decide that it was in my best interest to steer clear of horses hooves for a day. And for the record, I had my boots on. I guess I should be thankful for that!
In the meantime, a fellow blogger and friend has been posting great stories submitted by her readers. One of the stories is by a friend of mine, Julie. I met Julie, who rescued Brego a few years ago. She also owns a BEAUTIFUL Friesan...
and the other story is quite nice too. I thought I'd direct you to my friend's blog while I recuperate and eventually get back into action
