Well I don’t know why I had to have a bath last week. It’s been rainy and yucky and hot and sticky all in one week, and I’m pleased to say I definitely don’t smell of herbal essences any more. Woohoo. So because of all the random weather, I’ve had a steady week, which has been lush. I also got my own way on the grass front – I might have snuck under the fence line on Monday and Tuesday evening into the long stalky stuff, and then mum decided on Thursday that I could have it opened up anyway. 1-0 to me.
I had to go in the school on Tuesday night to see if I was feeling any better. I was – a bit. Honestly though, when there’s a riding crop involved, and people, and ponies, and I’m sure a horse-eating leaf at some point, how am I meant to concentrate? My tummy still didn’t feel great. I managed to do what mum was asking a few times, but mostly I was having to keep an eye out the whole time as she clearly wasn’t!
I had a lovely meal time on Friday – I got to come into the barn for half an hour and have my fly rug off. That was awesome. Standing in the shade, in the breeze and munching my dinner. Yes please.
We had an early morning on Saturday, and still didn’t manage to beat the heat. We went for a walk out with Bailey; I didn’t spook or get silly, but was still feeling a bit tense and got quite sweaty even though we weren’t going very fast. Mum’s trying to figure out what’s going on with me as I have a new habit of being very steady (she says sluggish) on the way out. I’m feeling OK, but she’s got to work out what I need to get me working properly again – I can’t make it too easy for her! Plus she knows I am super sensitive, so she will figure it out eventually. I’m pretty sure she’s got more salt in stock again now, as dinner tasted a bit different!
I think next week we might be heading off on an adventure but I’m not sure just yet. Watch this space and see! Mum said auntie Sarah will be coming to see me again soon too. I hope this means I get to jump stuff again!
