My friend, and barn owner, had surgery last Friday.
A long awaited, much needed, ankle surgery that was very extensive and will keep her away from riding for several months. You feel the pain right there…
In the end, this surgery will be a life saver, make for so much better walking, and a lot more fun! Excruciating chronic pain is extremely draining.
During the long healing process, we’re three boarders running the farm. For an undetermined time, but until the end of the year for sure.
Nancy, your horses are doing great, and I promise to keep them in shape during this time!
Coming down with a serious cold and fever the day of the surgery was extremely bad timing on my part. (Ever a good timing to that?) Of course I’m already back to riding. You would be too. Let’s not deny it. It’s just very. Lethargic. And dizzying.
Tomorrow, I should mount the orange tractor and drag that arena! Enough of sniffling and coughing already! How was it again? There’s no brake, use the clutch, and watch the front hopper or it will take down the entire arena fence poles, and roof?..
