I haven't really posted much lately... well there's been the Wordless Wednesday, Friday Funny, and Sunday Stills, but not a "real" post, a post talking about what's going on with things here. Between being struck down with creeping crud and trying to work I haven't had a lot to say.
Pie had his appointment with the specialist on Tuesday. We gave his history, he had some more tests done, then he got referred to 2 more specialists (ear/nose/throat and an allergist) as well as had more tests requested, another breathing test (it will be the 3rd), the CT (the one that still hasn't been done) and a sleep study. He has been feeling a lot better lately and the specialist we saw said that his lungs sound good at this time.
Today was gorgeous, I had some "me time" free and I'm feeling much better so out the door I went!
Take a look at the pic below, can you tell what I did?
That's knee deep snow the big guys trudge through to get out to the pasture:
When I swung up in the barnyard he was a bit antsy but once we headed down the driveway he settled down. I kept it to a walk and it was sooo nice. He just levelled out his neck and walked out with that nice, easy walk that swings your hips.
It was nice to be out on a ride, soaking up some spring sunshine. The only noise was the creak of leather, the soft thud of Voodoo's hooves on the sandy edge of the road and the drone of our only company:
I'm going to be riding a lot more in the next while, I've signed up for 2 clinics between now and the end of May, a Molly Powell barrel clinic and a Dave Manning clinic... might take one of the colts to that for some groundwork.
