Injury update

Look at that, by golly!  She might be healed up by Christmas.  It's amazing what happens when you just leave things alone and let them do their thing.

After being stuck inside yesterday due to nasty cold, blustery weather, the quarters went out today and enjoyed a most unusual wintertime visitor: the sun.  Here in the middle of the finger lakes we typically don't get sunshine between November and April - we just get gray.  Stupid lake effect weather.  So today was a special treat.

I even went on a short little ride on Coriander.  The ring is too frozen to ride on, but we went around the farm a bit and had a nice time.  Then we went and practiced setting up for a halter class.  He's getting a lot better at it.  It helps that he was probably taught how to square up about 8 years ago, so all I have to do is refresh his memory.  Now I have to work on getting him to trot in hand.  We'll take it one step at a time.
