Weekend Wash Out

Rain and work kept me out of the tack all weekend. Saturday brought storms through the area, so all I managed was to shorten Eli’s mane. I think I could have ridden Eli at a walk around the property on Sunday morning in between showers, but Eli’s left hind looked a bit suspicious so I iced it and wrapped it. How he did it in his stall, I have no idea. We’ll see how it looks this evening.

Plus, even though the sun poked out of the clouds for a bit in the afternoon on Sunday, I slumped dejectedly at my desk at work. The end is in sight, however, so I am hoping the end is really the end until January 2019, although “special session” rumors fly around every Memorial Day weekend–oh, and I’ll be at my desk that weekend, too. It seems Austin has a hundred year flood every Memorial Day weekend, anyway.

At least, on Sunday evening I got to enjoy a nice family dinner and the return of Twin Peaks. On Showtime, David Lynch doesn’t have the constraints of network television. Having been a fan of the first two seasons when they initially aired on ABC, I couldn’t wait to see what he’d come up with–count me as entertained. The show’s return keeps fans strongly in mind. If you don’t have familiarity with the show or the Fire Walk With Me prequel, I am not sure why you would watch season 3 because it won’t make sense. It doesn’t make sense. Pretty sure I giggled inappropriately the entire time!

  1. I swear that horses spend their days figuring out how to be injured ‘just enough’. I hope he heals well. I saw the ad for the new Twin Peaks but figured I couldn’t catch up.


    • They totally do! I think he heard me say “show” at some point and figured what the hell.

      If you haven’t watched the first 2 seasons and the prequel movie, it will not be good tv for you. It’ll be weird tv that will inspire a lot of wtf, and outside of the context of the back story would be downright painful to watch. But SO GOOD if you’re into that kind of thing.


  2. My 5 year old was running around the field, after 5 inches of rain, and I’m thinking “don’t be an idiot”. “Watch this, Mom!!” *facepalm*


  3. Oh man. You just can’t even think words like “show” or “clinic” for fear of your pony hearing it and throwing a shoe or getting mystery swelling or some stupidly located cut!


  4. i’m pretty sure charlie can lame himself in a stall faster than just about anywhere else. ugh. just actually took advantage of horze’s 20% off back on track stuff to grab a set of quick wraps with the idea that maybe barn mgmt will bundle him up during the time he has to be stalled? idk. we’ll see… hope Eli feels 100% soon!
