I am exausted!! Had the fundraising ball for my job last night, got home after midnight, barely slept at all, no idea why!
I gave 2 riding lessons today. Then rode my horse Liberty, he's 21 and getting older and has arthritis, and I have a bad back, so rarely are we "sound" on the same day! But we had a good ride, even went over a few small jumps, something I haven't done in a couple months because of my back! So it was a nice treat!!
Then my new rescue horse (miniature horse actually) gave us a scare! I got him a couple weeks ago at an auction for $75. He is skin and bones! He's really weak too! We did blood tests and took fecal samples this past monday. All of the blood work came back fine! But the fecal sample showed that he's infested with worms! 500 eggs per gram!! So we started him on a 5 day power worming plan. And there's a chance it can give him stomach cramps, or even worse, colick. Cause he's so tiny!! Well I got a call from the barn owners daughter that Rascal was down in his stall and couldn't get up. We rush to the barn, calling the vet on the way, get there and he's laying down, looks ok, but wont get up. We had to lift him to his feet! Once he was up and steady he started eating his dinner and looked much better! The vet thinks he's just still really weak! So it was a scare but he's ok!!
Now I am heading to sleep! Have work in the morning, then going on a trail ride with my best friend and going to her house to watch horse eventing DVDs and play Rockband! lol
