The mare and me rode out during those very- soggy- days of last month and also, some of the prettiest sun spot ones. Sometimes we barely stayed dry long, for the next front would roll in as we returned to the comforts of stable-cover!
I got to try out my new -Water proof quarter sheet- my sissy got for us at Christmastime. She intended on making the bottom piping ribbon RED, for us ALL AMERICAN RIDERS...but her machine broke as she stitched it, so we remain green till another time ( hope I won't need it till fall ) and that is so fine with us!
The sheet was fabulous in the downpours we strode through, keeping my leg covered to my mid boot and- the mare's rumpus too!
Wa mare was some what SHOCKED that we were going out in rain sometimes. There was actually a person walking somewhere behind us, she was keeping track of them with her ears here~
Our water world trails, at every turn we made a couple weeks in a row
It brought many a new mud bog
Tried to turn down this trail, nope, tis a new creek now!
How about this way?
This road was okay, by the ponds. The waters were contained and stayed inside the set boundary.
All these are from 2 weeks ago.
Then, the last Saturday in January, I got "THAT CALL" again from the stable. My mare had gotten injured running around when some fireworks or machine gun (sounding )shots had spooked her and Theo at dusk, when the stable hired help arrived. My B-man went out as soon as we got the call.
It appeared to be a terribly deep cut through my mare's frog, a bad heal wound on the same Lf rear, and a mysterious edema- on her right chest, the size of a quarter roll...it just hung there. She definately was in pain and bleeding badly from the frog. She was weaving and yawning to try to calm herself.
I have this cool can I found at the second hand store, it has Greek looking people and horses...and this dude, he is doing a TTouch!!
