It is a rare occasion that inspires me to post anything that is not directly involving the horses but you all will see why in a second.
On Wednesday morning Mom and I were headed to go get some shavings and a big bale for the broodmares' pasture when a dump truck tried to pass us on the left as I was turning left. Fortunately we all walked away (all right, all right, I hopped) but luck was on our side.
Sincere thanks go out to the emergency responders for their swift assistance and skills.
As no post goes without any mention of horse-related things, if you are interested in trying any of our horses with an intent to purchase, we will do our best to accommodate your needs. It will be a few days (possibly a week) until I am back in the saddle as my left ankle took the impact from the door as it was ripped off. Mom's shoulder is still healing but we are very fortunate to have several top notch working students who can certainly show our horses undersaddle.
And the final reminders - please wear your seat belt. Please drive cautiously and be on the lookout for turning vehicles, pedestrians and other road hazards. No deadline is worth a life.
