As in Denali day. Today is the day the vet comes out to give us an update. I was such a nervous wreck last night at the barn trying to figure out how she's doing on my own. She still has a horrible limp. That can't be good. She was in good spirits though, so that's good. She looks thinner to me, which doesn't make much sense because all she does is eat. UGH. Horse, why are you so complicated! She has no muscle tone at all, her top line is totally gone and her butt jiggles when she walks.The continuation of Denali's construction work. I can't even get the board to go the whole way back down. UGH DENALI!! You have more stall toys than you know what to do with, can't you play with those!! MUST you lift up the board to see what's going on? You're so nosey!!
My skinny, lame, no muscled horse. Now imagine this build but 200 pounds underweight. That's what she looked like when I came back from Denmark.
This is our WONDERFUL present from Kristen and Laz over at Sweet Horses Breath. Laz sent it to Denali (and now she thinks they're engaged, watch out Laz!) to help keep the evil spirits away! It worked well for them! I tried to hang it IN her stall, I put it far up in a corner that would be hard for her to reach it since it's glass. God, I'm so dumb! She figured out that it was in there and decided to risk killing herself to see if it was food.... now it hangs on the front of her stall. Thank you so much Kristen and Laz!! We love it!
I'm so not ready for the show. I've tried memorizing my pattern for Saturday. I think I have it down, but in all honestly it isn't going to be pretty. My head and heart just weren't in it yesterday and our ride sucked. I have been using my Back On Track pad on the Morgan Monster, but it's black, so I switched to a white pad (not back on track.) I can totally notice a difference in her back. It takes forever for her to loosen up and start to use it. Ugh. I love my Back on Track pad, it's awesome. Hopefully Denali gets to use it. I owned it for a whole week when Ms. D got hurt. No teasing! My ride is at 9. I'm hoping your right Jay, and that the judges will be more lenient the first ride. I can only imagine what my score card will say in comments! Gulp!
Still playing with the layout. What do you think?
Need to focus. Think good thoughts for Nawlers!
