Unfortunately, Foster was just as bad yesterday- in fact, I didn’t even get on. I decided to lunge and see what I was dealing with, and the answer to that question was a very stiff, sore pony whose lower back and pelvis was obviously hurting. Poor guy’s back was simply not moving, and he held his tail way down and against his body, even at the walk. [insert angry face here] I am hoping a few days off and some arnica gel, and hopefully a borrowed Back On Track blanket will allow everything to settle into place.
In other news, I received a ribbon in the mail the other day, completely unexpected. Apparently our
few ribbons this season counted towards a series, and my points earned me 7th place. Since it’s been some years since I last received a big ribbon, I’ll take it. Thank you ribbon fairies of the NCDCTA Timex Series!
Aww poor Foster! Hoping he feels better soon!
Gosh me too- hate seeing them not feeling well!
Poor Foster buddy, but yay ribbon fairy!
Thanks ribbon fairy, for the needed pick-me-up.
Good time for a holiday break for your buddy. And congrats on 7th! I believe 7 represents the number of perfection according to the ancient Hebrews. Just sayin’.
Haha I love that. A little silver lining for the 7th place ribbon 🙂
Hope Foster feels better soon, congrats on the ribbon!
Oh man 😦 hope he feels better soon!!
Yay big ribbon!!
aw poor stiff pony! hope it passes quickly. maybe hang the pretty new ribbon on his stall for some good vibes?? 😉
