Darn darn darn…

Well… the big trip is canceled.  Sigh.  Flirt has refractured her right hind lateral sesamoid.  The good news is that the vet is confident she will heal completely and return to full work.  Also, it should only take about 90 days to heal. 
The bad news is that he strongly recommends that she should only be ridden in an arena from now on.  No hills, no uneven footing, no jumps.  I’m bummed about that because she is really fun to ride on the trail.  But I’ll take what I can get, she’s also fun working on dressage.

Wait a minute… 90 days?  That’s the 90 days I’m going to be out of school and have lots of time to ride.  Sigh.

Today one of my choir buddies offered one of her horses for me to ride whenever I want.  He’s a 4 year old App/Qtr Horse gelding that’s quiet but needs trail miles.  TRAIL MILES!!!  Perfect!  A silver lining.



  1. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
