Autumn Hiatus

The last two months have been frustrating. After our last versatility in August, Jigs came up lame.

Marshfield

First an abscess,

Heel

then a case of white line.

September and October- the best time to ride in New England, and we missed most of it.

Arrggghhh….

Naturally I went through the usual paranoia and obsession. Convinced I had permanently broken Jigs, I drove my vet crazy.

Then, thankfully, he was sound again mid October.

Sunday we got to play dress up and attended our first off property ride in months.

Great Pumpkin Ride 2015

It was a great day, with great friends.

I was psyched! Next up, the Turkey Trot…. love riding around cranberry bogs…..

Sunday was perfect- a costume ride and home in time for the Patriots’ game.  I even had time to finish laundry…

Yep, laundry.

Housework gets you every time.

My ankle rolled as I was carrying an EMPTY clothes basket down the cellar stairs and I fell.

Broken Foot

Broken foot and another 6 week hiatus…….  Jigs probably thinks he hit the lottery…..

    So sorry to hear this. I’ve had similar experiences where medical conditions have kept me out of the saddle (foot surgery, cataract surgery, disc problems). Can’t begin to tell you how frustrated I was. You have my sympathy; hope you heal quickly so you can get back to your passion!


  2. Oh No. Damn the housework. It’s true, it is the most dangerous activity. Way riskier than horse riding. Feel better. Thankful for at least one outing.
