Thank goodness for adrenalin!
Here's my horsey blooper!
I was riding Maze out through the pasture and we were having such a great time walking, trotting and galloping around. As I was bringing her back towards the barn to take her gear off I glanced over at my spotted pig "Porkchop". He was laying in his yard ever so still and didn't even stir as we trotted past him by the fence. My first thought was "Oh no....somethings wrong with my pig!" Still trotting and not paying attention to anything but my pig I said Whoa girl. Mazy stopped on a dime and of course I flew right over her head landing just in front of her front feet. She lowered her head and sniffed my face with a look that said "Hey mama....you alright?" I got up, rubbed her nose and told her "It's alright girl...it's not your fault." I thought I would climbe back on...it was then I realized my arm wasn't working right. I looked at it and sure enough there were tell tale signs that it was broken. I took the reins in my good hand and walked her into the barn. I felt no pain...how odd I thought to myself. When we reached the barn my hubby came running in and said " Holy crap....are you alright?" I looks at him and said "Well I think I broke my arm....it isn't working quite right." He took one look at my arm and said "I'll take care of Maze....you go get in the truck awhile." Yep....it was broken and if it hadn't been for the adrenalin rush I would have been in so much pain. The entire seven weeks in that cast seemed like a lifetime. I still went down and brushed her and hugged up on her everyday but didn't ride because I'm right handed and had a heck of a time learning to do anything with my left hand. I truely believe that those seven weeks were good for the both of us...we spent alot of time just hanging out and our bond seemed to get even stronger than before. I've learned a very valuble lesson through this....Ignore the Pig! lol
