That might just be her show name if we ever make it there! Thanks Anna for the idea!! :)
Today was a long day. I went out to volunteer at the horse rescue near Seattle. If you're in the market for an amazing horse check out www.safehorse.org. They are an amazing group of individuals and I admire all of the work they put into everything. We worked on winterizing the farm. Lots of work done and a TON more to go! We're having an adoption event on October 4th. There is a TB there named Cedar who I would have home in a heartbeat if I wanted my husband to divorce me. She's amazing! I can't wait for her to get her own girl or boy!
ANYWAY! I went to the barn to ride Denali since she did so well yesterday. Got her out, groomed her, and got everything ready to ride. I put the saddle on, and went to tighten the girth....holy shit! She blew up! The poor things belly is still swollen. I guess after riding yesterday it caused more swelling? Of course I couldn't let her get away with flipping out so I put the saddle on and tightened it enough to stay on, but not cause her pain. I was afraid she'd remember that freaking out = no work. We lounged for about half an hour. The vet said to work her, but I left him a message about the swelling when we were done. If this is going to take months to heal I'm going to be sad. I guess we'll go back to ground work or I'll ride bareback. Poor Nawlers.
