21 - Christmas party

tonight was the Christmas barn party. It went well. Then I went out to dinner with Theresa and Lindsey. An old co worker met us out. The co-worker brought an asshole friend… that I didn’t care for. Was rude. Don’t you hate it when one person ruins your night?

Ami gave me a fricking heart attack tonight. I pulled Ami out and he was dead lame. He had stepped on his clip. Brendan pulled his shoe. thank god he was there - it would have taken me all night. I suck at getting shoes off. This is left front. So I soak his foot in iodine and epsom salt,  and diaper-ed, vet wrapped, duct taped. I put standings on his hind legs to sweat the swelling until fernando steroid talk tomorrow. He has bell boots on to prevent him from re-opening the coronet band cut. He

ami playing around in the pasture today.  decided that if he feels good enough to play around, that he wasn’t too hurt enough to carry me around.  He acted like a butthead at first but I didn’t put up with it.  he got a little smackdown, and he decided to cooperate. I think it is part of his personality to occasionally test me. Didn’t do TOO much, didn’t want to push his cut and tear it open again.

rather un-eventful today.  rode some horses.  took care of barn stuff.  weather sucked - it was cold and windy.  It was so warm last year for so long… the winter has already started.  ugh.  I can’t imagine suffering through a cold winter this year.

messed up situation

Crystal & Cookie Archive on November 29, 2008, 1:57 am


my father fell out with several members of his family, so we grew up without them.  Now that we are older, you would think they would want to get to know us. They don’t. It’s weird to be held responsible for things you had nothing to do with. But its the age of myspace and facebook, so I have seen pictures of them.  So weird to have family that acts as though u don’t exist.

So ami’s leg still looks like poop. Fernando is on his way, so I go to get Ami out of the pasture. He has hives covering his body. FREAK! As it turns out, Fernando isn’t too worried about it.  says its’ reaction from spider bite.  Gave another med, some sort of steroid… swelling was reduced by the time I pulled him in from dinner.  Furazone sweat wrapped him last night. We’ll see today.
