Quick Update

I just wanted to drop in for a quick update because I know some people are worried about my absence.  Everything is fine.  I'm just really busy,  I was also sick at one point (four days in bed with fever... that was a first) and the pinched nerve in my neck flared up at another point, but aside from all of that I am now doing well.  Chrome is doing great.  His sweet itch is flaring up already, but the neem oil manages it as well as it can.  He's still happy and healthy otherwise and I hope it makes you happy to see his smiling face again.  ;)

Can you believe how light he is getting??  He's going all flea bitten too.  He's so cute!

Rocky and Zep are doing well too.  I'll update about all of the other critters on my other blog when I can.  That's all for now.  I'm sorry I have neglected my blog and all of your blogs.  I miss you guys like crazy!  If you feel like leaving a comment with an update on how things are going with you I would love that.  Maybe it will help me feel less bad about missing everything on your blogs.  Later!

Oops I forgot a picture.  He looks so butt high for some reason, but he's still cute.  :)

Chrome & Rocky Playing

Sorry I've been absent.  Life is just crazy right now.  I'm so happy it's daylight savings time because now maybe I'll be able to get stuff done during daylight after work.  If it ever stops raining....

For now here is a video of Chrome and Rocky playing last weekend.

This makes me so happy because Rocky can be a bully and I didn't think they really ever played.  I'm glad to see they do.

For those of you who can't watch videos here is a picture of my handsome, but filthy, Chrome.

Chrome Ride 150 - 100 Ride Challenge Ride 1

I finally got on my horse!!  This is only the second time I've been on him since last July.  The first time was a couple of months ago and was only for about a minute.  Today I rode twenty minutes.  There isn't much to say because all we did was walk around, with a couple of short trots and some work on backing up with his head down.  He felt good.  Not lame at all, although his stifles are a bit stiff.  The lack of riding hasn't helped his loose stifles.  He was a bit looky, but didn't spook.  There aren't a lot of horses that you can hop on bareback in a halter after seven months of no riding, so I was proud of him even though we didn't do much.  I'm so happy to be back to riding!

It was late so the pictures aren't great.  I had a really bad headache and a crick in my neck, but it actually wasn't raining so I decided I better just jump on.  If I keep waiting for the perfect riding weather I won't ride all winter...  oh and don't judge me on how filthy he is!!  I didn't have time to groom him before I rode or it would have been full dark by the time I got on!

 Sniffing the cat.

Sorry for the short post.  Hopefully I'll have more interesting stuff to post about soon.  Just waiting on that longer daylight.... I hope you guys are all having fun and doing well.  I'll try to get caught up on blogs.  I'm so behind it seems impossible, but I'll keep trying.
