Mom was all dolled up and wanted to send her love to Jim. We sent a text message with the picture attached. Quickly Jim sent her a text back with his love and a current shot of him. Gee, 95 and 88, respectively, using all the current tools. Crazy. Glad to see them both looking so good!
Lauren and Megan headed back from Galveston Island today and picked up Jordyn on the way home. The weather was beautiful and it was a great afternoon to spend on horseback. While Megan was riding Mickey and Lauren riding Feather, Jordyn enjoyed playing ball with new dog, Kona in the arena. I figured it was good for Feather to have a ball-playing dog running around the arena. And I was proud of Kona as he stayed focused on the game and never offered to chase or bother the horses. The biggest surprise was when little miniature dachshund Lula decided she wanted to chase the ball as well.
After the girls got their rides in-posed here with Feather-it was time to change Bruno’s bandage for the first time since the return from A&M. I had not seen the newly stitched new hurt hoof. It looked good and was much less swollen. Lauren got both hooves re-bandaged and took Bruno out for his first walk with her since December.
Last night when I was home alone, I got the great idea to take Bruno out for some fresh green grass. I had texted my friend Caroline and told her I was taking Bruno out for a walk and if I did not get back to her in 15 minutes-call Life Flight! Well, I did not last even five minutes. As soon as Kid started neighing for Bruno and then Mickey picked up the chant, Bruno started cantering in place and trying to bolt away from me. Honestly, if this 1300 pound animal had wanted to bolt he would have, and I would have been left standing (maybe) in the pretty green grass. With my heart beating a million miles an hour, I sternly walked Bruno back to his stall as he continued to try to dance out of my grasp. Epic failure-but at least I got him safely back to his stall. I texted Caroline back-‘never mind’ . She thought I had not even gone out, instead I was out and back before she even started to worry about me.
