That all sounds innocent right? But then... Well, let's back up. Despite my taking the chances on the weird leg being that she was sound and it seemed better, I did put her on the list to be checked out. I want my sports medicine vet to see her asap, but he's harder to get out. The regular vet was scheduled out for some shots for someone so I had her on that list too. No one had updated me on what he saw, so I kind of just assumed he hadn't made it out yet. Y'all know what happens when you ASS U ME right?
Sunday, barn owner asked if barn manager had texted me with what the vet said. I said no, I figured he hadn't made it out yet. She's like oh... I told her to text you since she was there with them. Barn owner was VERY apologetic. Not sure what happened, why I wasn't informed... But apparently it's Shiny's check that had fill. It didn't feel like that to me, but maybe I was thrown off by her teeny tiny legs. Either way, now I'm feeling panicky because Pammon was never lame when he injured his check. And now I'm certain it's bad. Though I'm still riding her lightly until the other doc gets out. She gets a little nutty in the winter and I want to try and mitigate that if she's injured. UGH. If you all could send some healthy ligament vibes into the air, I'd be grateful. This is getting ridiculous.
The other boys are doing just fine (thank goodness)! They've been flatting and working harder. So far so good. I need to get to work with them cantering ground poles but sometimes it's tough with lessons happening. It needs to happen though if we ever want to graduate to jumping!
In other news, I bought myself a present! (Shocking I know...) I posted about this on the social media already, so sorry if you already saw it.
