After our colic episode, I've decided to try hand walking Denali without using ACE and she's been fine. I was doing it outside around the farm, but even when she was ACE'd she'd get overly excited when she'd see another horse (I would too!) so I decided to just hand-walk her in the arena. We've been doing the Intro A test over and over again. It gives me something to think about rather than mindlessly wandering around the arena. We've also been working on Showmanship. She always cocks her left leg (suspensory tear) so I don't push it. She's been so sweet!! The Reserpine does that to her.
Today I groomed her really good, and trimmed her bridle path and her whiskers for our trip to the hospital. I took off work on Wednesday to get her ready. I could use the money, BUT I also need a day off. I figured I'd be no good at work anyway, so there's no point in paying me for spacing out.
I wanted to say a million thank yous for your donations!! The Insurance might be paying for surgery, but I still have a tons of bills to pay for her. I withdrew the money from Paypal today and put it into my very low checking account. It's a good thing my husband is in AK because I'm pretty sure he'd kill me! Oh well. Not much I can do.
Hope everyone had a good weekend. Oh, and Ms. Denali NOW has a facebook (I know, I'm ridiculous!!) Add her as a friend (Search Denali Slew)
