Ever have one of those days?…
Today, I had to bail off of my horse.
Yup. Fall go boom.
Ouch. My pride was really bruised.
I sat there, on the ground, and just shook my head while my horse looked at me oddly…
Rojo: “Why are you down there?”
Me: Because you put me here.
Rojo: “Why didn’t you stay on?”
Me: Because I’m older, more afraid than I was earlier in my life and I’m still scarred from a previous accident 5 years ago… not that you would understand any of that.
Rojo: “Believe me, I have scars. You just can’t see them. In fact, I think you rubbed on one when you were riding me just then.”
Me: Maybe we oughtta heal each other a little more before we do that uncomfortable thing again.
Rojo: I’m game if you are.
Me (brushing myself off): OK. But I’m mad at you.
Rojo: Well, bring some hay into my paddock and let’s eat together. You read your book about how to get along with me and I’ll sit there with you and eat. We’ll be OK.
So we did…
…Then, I had to go to a specialist regarding my health. Yuk. He told me that my condition was manageable but not curable. Double Yuk. I’m actually thinking of exercising every single day, eating right and controlling my stress. Novel concept….
And, MamaTess is still no better. She is still on the experimental drugs. We’ve got the special abscess drawing pads on her feet and they are wrapped and padded.
Tomorrow, we take Xrays again.
While I was trying to find low starch/low carb/low sugar feed at the feed store, the clerk told me I needed to try REMISSION. Has anyone heard of it? She said it really works with chronic founder… but I find that hard to believe since no one has ever mentioned it before.
I bought a tub anyway. Figured it couldn’t hurt.
Anyway, I’m feeling kinda blue and don’t have much to say. So, I think I’ll let Fergus bring you a smile.
