What the heck?!?!

So, what the heck is going on?  No riding that's what's going on.  I had a minor medical thing done on Thursday morning which I though was going to put me out for the weekend.  No big deal as I had to spend the weekend in GA doing my Navy thing.  Well, doctor says "No riding for a week" - what?!?!  That wasn't part of the plan.  Such is life lately.

Now, I was all set to hop on Charlie tomorrow but his freaking shoes are loose!  What the heck?!?!  The farrier isn't supposed to come until next Tuesday.  I think I mentioned this but just in case I didn't - he comes up from Aiken so I have to hope, pray, make offerings to whatever gods that Charlie doesn't pull a shoe mid-shoeing.  Not an ideal situation but the guy is very good although we may be having a conversation about putting the nails a little higher in hopes that Charlie's shoes stay tighter, longer.

Now I leave you with some photos...

 

I forgot to include this in my last post - Charlie playing racehorse before loading up for our lesson with Janna.

 

This was from this morning - Charlie's looking a little soggy while eating breakfast.

Oh, I almost forgot!  So now I'm going to have to buy 10 rolls of gorilla tape to try and keep his shoes on until next Tues.  And then on Wed, I leave to spend 3 days in Denver.  I think Charlie will be up to almost 5 weeks vacation.  I'm going to be lucky if he doesn't go native on me...sigh...

  3. I'm jealous of your pasture... gorgeous. I'm sure Charlie will come back ok. It's your riding muscles I'd be worried about. ;-)
