So literally this weekend has been gone by in a flash!!! We were so busy! Today was just overly busy and you know how it goes when you try to play catch up....Not so easy LOL!!
First off I might add that my DD is off to 4H camp with her 2 best friends, and boy do I miss her!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE when she's gone, she's my mini me and I just miss her!! So the Hubby spent the majority of the day working because he was gone all last week for his day job and is trying to play catch up on his HVAC company. He finally finished working about 4:30 but then had to go and swath a waterway of brome so we can get it bailed and moved home!! We also had 4H, so J and I went to that and man I am glad we went because there was NO one there so I wouldn't have had anyone to mooch the much needed info off of LOL!! Which J is the VP so we always go as long as we don't have rodeo or something interfering.. So it was short and sweet, which was good because we also had to get my 3 year old filly picked up from the trainer's house and J had 2 football games tonight!!
So we dropped J of with his buddies so he could head on to the game while we went and got Macy. I was so excited to get her picked up, I really missed her!! She was supposed to come home 18 days ago but when our friend David went out the morning we were supposed to be coming he found her with what he describes as one of the worst injury's he's ever seen on a horse. She had gotten her eye caught on something and literally tore from below her eye up. David immediately loaded her in the trailer and hauled her to his vet which is an hour and a half away. His vet said she was very, very lucky as she did not hit any nerves, facial/eye muscles basically the entire area that she tore is the area where all of the movement and vision comes from. So far he thinks her tear duct is OK, they flushed it at the Vet's office and it streamed through the duct and didn't leak anywhere so that was great news! Her vision is fine, praise God!! David did a great job caring for her, she got 7 day treatment of penicillin and some eye drops.
I was so disappointed because he had 40 days of riding on her when she was due to come home :( He says she bucked a little bit in the beginning but he hasn't had any trouble with her after that, she never tried to buck again and he says she never even thought about it!! He also said she will be a fantastic riding mare, she has learned everything really well and he was very excited for us to ride her, but now with her injury it will be a while... He is being very generous to us though because he is going to take her back after she's fully healed and ride her for about another week just to give her a refresher. And to top it off he tried to prevent me from paying the vet bill!! He felt bad and didn't want us to pay finally he agreed to at least let us pay half. It has now been 18 days since her injury and her eye is still really swollen!!
My poor girl!!
Oh it hurts her so bad... I just hate to see her in pain :(
So next we headed off to J's 2 football games, which they won both!! Then after that we grabbed a quick bite to eat because we still had 136 hay bales to pick up at the waterway hubby cut last weekend. So we finally made it there and I got my favorite job of driving while Hubby and J loaded it up!! We didn't get it all though, it was so dark we finally decided we will get the rest later...
Did I mention that it was dark while we were doing this?!?! Matter of fact it was 11:00 pm at the time I took this picture!!
OH and FYI, I did not have my camera so I took these pictures with my Blackberry....So not real clear LOL!! And the dark didn't help my picture taking!!
See that blur, that's Hubby picking up a bale so I can keep driving..
There it is!!!
Now on the trailer!
Time to go home!!!!
