Hard to put a positive spin on them, right?
But it’s the only way to go. Horses, and their owners, will continue to get sick or injured way too often. A wonder we get anywhere at all, and that we get as far as we do, between it all…
It’s a beautiful time of the year (I say that all the time, except during REAL summer, which starts something like, tomorrow.), some extra rest is just fine, and all will turn out OK! Just not sure how many days – weeks – we’ll miss this time.

Monday morning, after two days rest, Valiosa came out with a sudden serious cough under saddle. Light canter, trotting, walking, didn’t matter. No temperature, or other signs.
Tuesday, the same, during light lunging to see how she was doing, with some nasal discharge. No swollen glands, still perky enough.
Yep, she’s had her fall and winter shots.
Nope, no allergies before.
No change in hay (not even fed right now as the 24 hr grass is so rich. Who would have ever thought that in California!), and no dust exposure.
No fever at all for three days in a row. House vet didn’t find any swollen glands. Standing by to see how this will pan out, absolutely no training for her for a while…
So – Healthy As A Horse. Who came up with that?
