Bitzy and the trailer.
I’m home from a very long week with my daughters in Ca. My middle daughter was hurt in a snow mobile accident. It was touch and go in the hospital when she got there and we are lucky to still have her. The detail of how the doctors saved her life are pretty graphic, even for me. But, she is improving everyday. She hurts like, well she hurts a lot. And, no surprise with a stage five ruptured spleen and broken upper arm that took a titanium rod to put back together and a fractured scapula. It will take her a lot of hard work to get back where she was, but she will do it. She’s tough.
Yesterday I spent a little time with the horses just reviewing some of the things we were working on before I left.
Bitzy is doing fine. She is very reactive to what is going on around her and that will just take time. She needs the chance to know that not everything is going to hurt her and she will learn the difference in time. We have worked on loading and unloading in the trailer. She had some trouble with that early in her life and I want to make sure that she does not have any issues in the future. She loads and unloads in my trailer without much conversation. We will continue to work on these things. There is no hurry to ride her. Andrea, her owner, has ridden her enough that I know that shouldn’t be much of an issue.
Zeb the black is doing well too. I have laid him down a couple of times before I left, and although it got a little western, he did finally laid down and settled. I think it will take more of this to get him to understand that he is not the cock of the walk around here. It will take time, but I have time.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
