Hey Jana! It's been kinda a crazy slow week. :) It's been really stormy here and I've only gotten to ride a few days this week. I also think I tore a muscle in my thigh and back. So it's been taking a lot out of me. Today, I rode before it started storming and I have to say I never cease to be amazed by my horses. Today when I was riding Jeff, I wasn't feeling too great...well not too great in the sense that every bumpy move Jeff made was making my whole leg and back hurt. And when I went to ask him to trot, I think he could tell I was hurting because he would pick up a trot and then go back down to a walk and he did that a few times until I told him it was okay and then when he was troting around, He tried to make my ride as smooth as possible. I could tell he was because usually he's one of the bumpiest horses to ride. Well...about the weather, It's been raining so hard that my arena, pastures, barn, round pen and shop (Garage) Were flooded...and that was on Wednesday. It is now Saturday and there is still about an inch of water in the barn, round pen and pastures. Oh! I almost forgot the best news I've heard in...a while. My horse, Unos BCRS Pistol was diagnosed with Juvenile arthritis in May, I don't know if I ever remember tellin anybody and He went down hill pretty quick. The good thing about where his arthritis is, is that it is in the bottom two joints in both of his hocks and once he is fused, he will be a completely sound again. Anyway after Pistol wouldn't work out of being sore I dicided that we needed to do a different procedure other than just injecting his hocks with Cortizone. (Or however you spell that) I have never had good luck with this procedure. So my vet suggested that I try this procedure that would cost a lot less then having him injected every month. So I agreed to it. But my vet needed Contrast. The contrast we needed has been on back order...forever! And I was talking to my surgeon the other day who has done most of my surgeries on Skipper when that big epic happened last year and somehow Pistol came up. And he had said that he had a lot of extra contrast and would be glad to give it to me! Now the next step is to get a vet appointment and see if I can do this procedure. So keep your fingers crossed for me please! I really want to get back on him. Not only that but I feel bad that he's in so much pain! The contrast will show us if all joints in his hock are connected...if they are, we will not be able to do the procedure. If they're not...then he will stay the night at the vet and go into surgery the next day! Other than that the horses are doin well and are fat and happy! Left a vote! Hope to hear from you soon!
