Do you want the good news or the bad news?
The good news is the horses are fine, the ice is thawing, and I've had a brilliant email from Lady's owners. They have had quite a struggle with grass over the summer and have worked incredibly hard to create an environment which allows her as much movement as possible without too much sugar(!) - I've posted about her woodland track here.
This week they took her to be re-assessed by her vet, as an insurance requirement. The assessment involved her being lunged in the car park, as the arena was frozen, and they were all thrilled with how well she behaved and moved - she's good to go - even more!
The bad news is totally non-horse-related, but a shock nonetheless, as my Dad was hit by a car yesterday (on a crossing) and is in hospital with a broken leg, which they are apparently hoping to screw back together on Saturday :-( I'm zooming up to Bristol some time today to see him, but its not the best pre-Christmas present for any of us...and for him and Mum least of all, of course.
However, I am hoping that over the weekend I will have the time to put together some posts on whole horse rehab, which I've been wanting to put up for ages. Jen J has also asked about still photos of toe first/heel first landings which I have, but haven't put on the blog before, so thats something else to try and organise plus of course new footage of the rehab horses is long overdue and again the weekend should bring spare pairs of hands so I can finally get that done...(!).
