When bringing Bandit in tonight, I stepped into his stall and off to the left, he steps in and starts to turn to face me but his rear foot slipped on the mat and down he went. His neck and head landed on the side of my right leg (which has a metal plate in it) , lets just say it was quite painful, Bandit got right up, checked him out , he seems okay. He went right to eating his hay and as I stood there crying from the pain in my leg he put his nose right up to my face like he was checking on me to see if i was okay. Love that horse. My leg is a little sore but otherwise okay.
snow still on ground, driveway is all ice, cant do much riding without slipping and sliding, dont want to do that.... so horses are enjoying the time off from being ridden or driven, their winter coats are getting wooly, last few days we have had temps below zero, CHILLY! but I'm not really complaining, cause I really dont like the summer heat , so i can deal with the cold... It is my 4 day weekend and it is supposed to be nasty weather every other day...just as well, since i cant ride on the ice..... wish i had an indoor arena :(
Sorry, no pictures, will try to get some tomorrow. But finally!!! Maine has snow!!! We got about 6 inches, horses weren't too happy when I put them out this morning, but they were happy when I brought them in early around noon, poor Bud had icicles hanging off his "beard", Bandit had ice on his eyelashes... poor boys, they are nice and dry now and well fed.
Didnt let the snow stop me from going out to lunch with my friend Ana, it was nice just to sit and chat for a while.
