I honestly didn't think it would happen, but because of you I have something new. Hope. I'm 10% of the way towards being able to send Denali to Pegasus. Many of you bought my stuff. So many in fact that I'm still organizing, cleaning, and packaging. Then there are some of you who have just donated out of the kindness of your heart!! When you give 5$ and say "I wish it could be more" it already is! 5$ is more than I had before you donated. I greatly appreciate it and am forever in your debt. Denali designed something to mail out to people who bought something or who donated, look for it in your mail box! Remember neither Denali nor I are graphic designers!! Be nice!
Next Saturday I go to Pegasus to check it out and fill out any paper work that I might need. I still need to sit down with the vet and figure out the "game plan." She wants to come out and x-ray Denali's right hind, but I honestly can't do it right now. I know it sounds horrible, but I am now that person who has to wait until I get paid! Ugh. I never wanted to do that, ever! I am trying to not feel horrible about it, but I figured if it has been hurt since September, then a few more weeks won't change much.
Positive thing is that my husband and I have no debt (well, the truck) and he is really good with money. I however, not so good with the saving part. I have become better! I have a jar of money in our bedroom that I put all my spare change in. I use to call it my "saddle fund" but I don't know if that will ever happen, and if it does it is now in the 5 year plan (or I magically make more money plan.)
I shouldn't be babbling on about finances. I hate talking finances. If you want a sure fire way to watch my husband and I fight bring up money + horse = not pretty. He loves her, but she's not the cheapest thing in the world.
Okay. Back to Denali.
I went out yesterday to see her. Super lovey! She's defiantly losing muscle tone quickly. She's also very stiff walking around her stall. I felt bad watching her move around her stall. I think it will be good for her to be able to go swimming and to loosen everything up. We still have two more weeks until she is allowed out for hand walking. THAT should be fun! Maybe I could sell tickets to people to come watch the "show" because I can guarantee it will be a good time!
Before I ran to the barn I stopped and bought Denali the biggest apple I could find! .76 of a pound. I was impressed and she was in heaven. It took her 9 bites to eat it. If you know Denali you'll know the normal amount is 1 bite. While she was eating it I snapped my fingers and she panicked, so I kept doing it but stopped when I figured out that it sounded like the electrical fence. Wow, I'm a horrible horse mom.
Other than that not much else going on in horse world. I had paid for training for Denali and that's not going to be happening so I'm going to lease my trainers little Morgan for the summer instead. At least I'll have a small beast to ride. Same personality, about 10 inches in height difference.
