Just a quick note to let everyone know I will be gone for a few weeks. Tomorrow (Friday) I will be having some necessary surgery, a TKR (total knee replacement). I’m sure everything will go fine, but I will be unable to post. When I arrive at the rehab center for my physical therapy, I am told they have dial-up internet service. Depending on [whether they’re giving me enough medication to counteract] the frustration of using dial-up, I will try to visit everyone from there with my laptop and keep up with what is going on. The good news in all of this is the surgeon assures me I will probably be able to ride again in three months or so. I will be looking forward to finally riding without pain in my knee. There will be some clicking I am told, but I was considering clicker training Dusty anyway, and now it will be built in.
Enjoy the beautiful fall weather and riding your horses. See you soon.
Until next time
Quote for Today
If you have it, it is for life. It is a disease for which there is no cure. You will go on riding even after they have to haul you on a comfortable wise old cob, with feet like inverted buckets and a back like a fireside chair... when I can't ride anymore, I shall still keep horses as long as I can hobble about with a bucket and a wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out to the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them.
