Spring tease

We had a beautiful weekend with almost Spring-like weather and I took full advantage of it! I cleaned Lucy's paddock to perfection, finally, and washed her legs and tail. She has a small mystery swelling on her RF (why is it ALWAYS the right front?!) so I've been treating that with Furazone, standing wraps, and cold therapy. It is looking better each day and she hasn't been lame on it at all, so it's not really on my list of stuff to worry about.

I lunged her yesterday in the Vienna reins and she had a very level mindset, so I got on to cool her out. We mostly walked but had about a two minute trot session, which didn't last very long because I immediately had to pee (yay 7.5 months preggo) and I also have almost no functional abdominal muscles so posting was a little bit difficult! She was a perfect lady and didn't put a foot wrong.

Today it snowed all day and I think going from 50 degrees and sunny to cold and snowy in less than 24 hours is borderline torture, but there you have it. This whole week is supposed to be dodgy weather-wise.

Kenny and I took Cairo out for a walk in the snow this morning and she had a super time.

    1. I got it at Marshall's a couple years ago so I don't think it will still be available. The brand is CB. It was a cheap jacket but it's warmer than my $150 Columbia jacket. I really love it.

    1. Yes the belly is certainly there! I think that jacket just hides it well. I realised today I can no longer see my feet when I'm standing up straight.
