Hey everyone! On Thursday, I finally took my mom and dads, and some of you guys, advice and went to a Med-Express. By myself. That in itself is kind of scary to me, going to any type of Dr. alone, I normally have my mom come with me, since I’m such a baby. So after I got all the insurance and everything settled, they brought me in and the Dr. looked at my knee, and said,”We’re going to need to draw out some of that fluid.” And then I freak out. Because you can’t draw out fluid without needles! And I don’t do needles, at least when they are pointed at me. I get an x-ray, everythings normal yay, and come back to the room where hes setting up everything. He assured me it would be totally painless, that he would freeze the area and I wouldn’t feel a thing. So I did it. By myself. I should get a medal or something for bravery. Unfortunately, I’d waited too long to do something about it, and all the blood was clotted, so nothing could really be drawn out. I know am on infection watch, as thats the real problems associated with hematomas left in the body. Woops.
On another note, went out to see my little mare, with a horse savvy friend, and puppy in tow. Just to groom, as my knee was, and still is, so sore from being poked and prodded. Gave her a quick grooming, she really needed a bath, but we were on a schedule and that didn’t fit in it, and I think shes getting used to more attention now. Its probably very different for her, going from just being turned out in a broodmare field, to being stalled, and played with. But I think shes liking it so far. Still need to find ways to get her used to water on her face, but we have time.
Now that I have a horse (BTW everyone, her blood work came back 100% normal, so shes officially mine!!! Can’t put pictures up on Facebook for the world to see yet, gotta break it to the siblings first.) I really need a new saddle that fits, pronto. I’ve been looking around online and really havent seen anything worthwhile. My trainer told me about a place in Ocala called The Good Apple, that has tons of saddles, so I might be making a trip there either today or tomorrow, as a break in between my studies. Ill also put my saddle on consignment there, since I need it gone. I also might be putting a bridle that my friend gave me on consignment there, since it really doesn’t fit her.
Anyways, thats all for today I think. I leave you all with a video I took of Libby at the vets during the pre-purchase. I don’t think I’ve shown it to you guys, but if I have, sorry for the repeat. She doesn’t like my kisses haha. Have a good weekend everyone!!
