Grounded, but not for much longer

Amazing.  I took the last two weeks of the year off work … and haven’t thrown a leg over a horse during that entire time.  Pre-Christmas chaos and a post-Christmas bout of the flu conspired to wreck my plans of extra lessons and focused rides.

I finally made it out to the barn tonight – I’m still far from 100% –  and got a warm reception from Maddie, who was happy to hang out and submit to lots of ear-rubs and forehead scratches while her bucket of “mare mush” — a generous scoop of beet pulp topped off with alfalfa cubes – soaked.  I fed her, finished grooming, and poked a few more carrots down the hatch for good measure.  I’m away for the weekend, but am determined to be back in the saddle on Monday.

I swear, if I’m grounded this long anytime soon, it better be because I’m in Europe or something equally worthwhile.

Mads keeps an eye on things. Christy took this picture earlier this year.

  1. Ugh, best laid plans and all that. Sorry for the derail-I know from experience how frustrating that is. Better luck next year!
