Eli had a third shockwave treatment this morning. He jogged for the vet before treatment, and he looked a lot better then he had previously. He didn't even look too bad after flexion. The next step is more hand walking and an ultrasound in two weeks to see where we're at. (I was hoping for … Continue reading Looking Better
Eli is still stuck just hand walking ... and he gets lots and lots of grazing ... is he actually getting fat? Fat for him, yes, but is he objectively fat? Maybe not quite yet. But yesterday was my birthday, and coincidentally I had the opportunity to ride not one but TWO horses after work. … Continue reading Back in the Saddle
Conrad is my little reliable bright spot at the end of the day. Blogging is a little slow lately and not just because Eli is injured. WORK IS NUTS. BUT it's all over on Memorial Day! Yes, I will be at work ON Memorial Day. It's the last day of the legislative session, and this … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Countdown to Sine Die!
I had to teach my phone "suspensory" is actually what I mean to type. First, if Eli were ever going up for sale, obviously this post would not exist. But he's not. And second, I am not putting hard numbers on anything here (which may be a disappointment but it's not happening). This post is … Continue reading What’s the Going Rate on a Torn Suspensory?
I think one of my most favorite foods is cheese. Conrad could probably say the same, although I try not to give him cheese because it's not something his digestive system can handle well. But he might get an itty-bitty tiny morsel of Havarti every once in a while. In other Conrad news, we had … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Begging for Cheese
I am trying not to count the days Eli has been out of commission. And I am definitely not trying to count the days before he can be back under saddle again. And I honestly have no idea when he'll be cleared for regular turn out. I am pretty sure Eli is not counting either. … Continue reading Who’s Counting?
My job is ... busy ... right now. Basically a marathon through Memorial Day. Conrad says "hi" though!
Subtitled "the poop post." Yes, I realize there is even another option for naming this post, but you can just say it to yourself in your head. Some things I have noticed about my horses over the years are their stall habits. Anchor peed a lot and wallowed. He would actually wait to pee until … Continue reading From a Felix to an Oscar
It's a struggle to be a fur parent, knowing your fur kid just wants to go play bitey-face with his friends but can't. And maybe the fur kid would like to be able to do his job because sometimes it's fun. And then as a fur parent you worry, because the fur kid pooped in … Continue reading Eli Update!
Eli might not touch a saddle for weeks or months, but that doesn't mean I can't ride. It's a little bit of a disappointment to get a new pair of breeches only to find your horse will be taking a summer vacation. But, I have still managed to wear the Calabasas denim breeches a few … Continue reading Equine Couture Calabasas Denim Breeches Review
