Beating the Bug

OMG. I just can't even with the bugs going around. So I was sick, then the baby then my person then the baby again. Now my person has a flu thing (not a stomach one thank God!) and Sianna has been sniffly and I can feel the sinus shit coming on for me. SO OVER IT! Fucking 80 some degrees in NOVEMBER and I feel like crap and even though I've had time to ride I haven't. My person and I both work with the public. Which means adults and children alike hacking and sneezing and snotting all over public places instead of freaking staying home with their DayQuil and a bottle of Purel.

E and a big group of us are going riding at her place Saturday (if I'm healthy!) so I feel like I should be doing something with Twister so that I don't get dropped in a field or ditch.... I put him in the machine Monday to jog some. And I need to trim up his front feet a bit so I can boot him. And I should ride or job him under tack in the machine at least once more. He thinks he's a racehorse. He hasn't been on a trail ride in over a year and he'll get in a big field there is a good chance he'd take off and fucking leave me hanging off his neck or in the dirt.....

Look at this pregnant mare.... i mean... really fat gelding...

I rode a week or so ago. Tried to do as much 2pt as possible. 30 mins straight of trot and canter (some in 2pt) left us both sweaty and needing a puffer. Other than that.... nothing.

Today I went outside to see what my person was doing.... idiot has a fever of 100.4 this morning and is out in the barn knocking shit down. Then he'll be in the house "ooohhh I feel like shit. My head hurts. I'm cold. I have a fever again". GAH, men! *Giant eye roll* I was like I should get Twister and ride. But eh. My heart isn't in it. Between the baby and him I hardly slept last night and I work this evening. So I hosed off winter blankets because it won't be 80* forever and took some pics of Rascal.

Did I mention that? Rascal is for sale. He just isn't getting the attention a young horse needs. And if Curtis doesn't heal up enough for racing he will probably end up being our extra riding horse.

  1. Bummer that you're all so sick, hopefully the sinus thing passes you by and you can go out and ride and have a blast (hopefully getting ditched in a field is NOT included in that lol)
