Catching Up and Concerns

So, I haven't been keeping up this week... with anything. Finals are this coming week, which is actually not that big of a deal, but does add a bit of stress. Yup... life just keeps coming on, whether I keep up or not.

Cute pony picture for your enjoyment. :)

Monday. Everything else took up so much time, but we had a lovely little bareback/bridleless ride in the dark. We didn't do anything very challenging, just worked on some basic yields.

Tuesday. No groundwork or riding.

Wednesday.  Again, no groundwork or riding. Writing took up a lot of time!

Thursday.  Did some basic groundwork.

Friday.  Got half-way saddled, and Lady just did not look right, so I cleaned her feet and loved on her instead of riding.

Saturday.  Still didn't feel quite right, but after getting her out two different times to check on her, I finally saddled up and rode for a little bit. And it felt worse from her back than it looked on the ground.

Sigh. I'm quite worried right now. Lady has been sound and fairly solid for all of 2014 so far, and I really do not want to go through the process of trying to figure out and solve whatever might be wrong AGAIN. She looks and moves pretty stiff through her shoulder and especially her right front leg/foot. Nothing appears to be wrong with her shoulder and there is no heat or swelling. She does need her feet done pretty badly, so I'm hoping that is what is wrong. Really hoping. *weary sigh...*
