I'm not the "head" person, (THANK GOD) but signed up to run the English/Western division at a local horse park. My PLAN was to bring Denali to the dressage shows hosted by the park this summer, and to make people NOT hate me when she took out the dressage arena (not saying she WOULD, but I think you all know her well enough to know what she's capable of...)
Instead Denali decided to become a pasture pet, and stuck me with running a horse show. How nice of her! (I am still refusing to say "retired" because SOMEDAY I will get on her.) This weekend could be very interesting.
Last night I ran out to work at the Center. April, who actually was featured on the Fugly Blog the other day (remember this nice photo), needed her neck flushed out. It reminded me of WHY I don't know if I could be a vet. The puss and gunk that came out of her neck....Yuck! April was a good girl and stood cautiously while the vet flushed it a few times. The stitches are still holding, but it is really swollen. She is such a sweet girl. I joked with Mel, one of the workers, that April likes me more. She ran around her stall from Mel, but let me catch her right away. (Ignore the fact that Mel gives her antibiotics three times a day. :) ) I love her. She always lets me catch her, and love on her. She's a VERY special girl.
