Back on Track (So to Speak)

I thought I would give an update on my back surgery saga. This has been a solid week of gains! I have not been using my walker and have made it out to "help" do evening chores every night. My particular contribution is taking care of the chickens. I love my girls. I have been feeding them, tossing out some scratch every night and gathering the eggs. It may not sound like much but it means the world to me to be getting back into the swing of things!

Wednesday is our farrier appointment. It will be Sephy's first experience... I am a nervous wreck. While I did A LOT of work with her before my surgery, NOTHING has been done with her since. I have not taught her to lead or tie yet either... We shall see how this goes. Standby for a post about the potential miracle/disaster.

This weekend I will be moving the majority of my tack from my trailer to my "tack room" in the house. YES! I have a tack room in my house! OK well, it is actually a closet in my music room but it is amazing! I want to be able to have my tack in a climate controlled area since I am not riding. I will be spending next weekend cleaning and conditioning all of my tack since it will just be sitting in the closet for the next year. Oh Joy...
