The evening after getting home from California I had a weird episode where I suddenly felt incredibly tired and body heavy and like I was going to pass out if I was standing. I went to bed and still couldn’t function in the morning – ultimately sleeping from 10 pm to 1 pm the next day and still spending the rest of my day on the couch. After sleeping another almost 14 hours the next night I reached the point where I am now – able to walk around and do stuff but just feeling tired all the time and muscle weak. As a supremely independent and stubborn person who is very busy I’ve really struggled this past week. After a week away I needed to ride Maestro (he needed work and I needed my mental health) so I did but kept it light. He’s really such a good egg! Trainer is going to ride him today and jump him so he can get a real workout in. I head to the doctor this afternoon hoping for some answers so I can get back to full speed soon.
When I got back from my trip (before feeling like poo!) I went out and gave the chestnut boys a good grooming. I was so happy to see Stampede holding his weight (actually he has gained the last couple months) with the addition of alfalfa to his diet.
With my amazing parents helping me with the stalls at home lately it appears the chestnuts are getting on point with their treat begging.
Yesterday after getting home from work I sat down on the bed for a minute and looked out the window to see some ponies hunting for bits of grass since the snow is currently melted (ie there is mud, ugh) and it just made me smile. I’m so lucky to have these boys at home.
