In other news, I am scheduled to meet my surgeon on Wed to discuss my back surgery! WAHOO!! Riding here I come! I am not sure what type of surgery I am going to get but know that anything is better than what I have now. I started this journey with the VA about 6 months ago and finally have been referred to a spinal expert only 5 miles from where I work! I am so excited about the possibility of running AND riding again! I am hoping that I will be recovered enough to start riding as soon as the weather clears up which should be mid-May.
Aspen is HEAVY in foal and looking so good! We have about 2 more months left and I am starting to get very excited. I read an article that says a maiden mare's first foal is typically a filly. I don't know how accurate that is but I have been thinking of girl names! Pele, the Hawaiian fire goddess and Persephone, queen of the underworld. Any ideas out there in Blogger Land? I am thinking of names with mythological or legendary meanings.
Here is a before picture of Aspen... pre-preggo right before we moved up here to WA:
Here are some pictures I took last weekend. Can you see the difference?
