Not So Hot

Me or the Weather

It was hot today, but the humidity wasn't so bad.

However, I spent most of the day inside. I did a little work with the clothes setting up three crates in the one closet to clear up the clutter.

But, my neck was really bothering me, pushing towards a headache, so I was alternating with ice and heat nearly all day. I should have tried to go to the chiropractor in the morning, but when I got up it wasn't that bad. Now I have to wait until Monday.

I didn't swim either. I thought about it, but the neck/head thing was making me just a little dizzy, so I opted out.

Meanwhile the Boys all had the day off. Toby definitely deserved it after his magnificent turn as a teacher yesterday. I am still in awe at how good he was.

Tucker is just so convinced he is a star I can't believe it. If he had his way, he would be the alpha horse at the barn, but Toby is far too strong a character to allow that. Tuck will test me, especially at feeding time by swishing his tail and laying back his ears. What an actor.

Chance is low man on the totem pole, but he is very clever about handling it all. He watches out for himself and insistst that I wait on him about coming in for dinner. He can get to his stall from outside, but because it is on the other side of the barn from the other two, he prefers coming into the barn aisle so he can get in from his front door. That means I have to open the gate into the aisle for him and then open his stall gate to let him in. It's really kind of cute that he's decided that's how his life runs. He has trained me really well.

If the humidity holds off tomorrow, I hope to get on Chance to see how he feels. If it's too hot, he'll have to wait for cooler weather.

I have lessons with Patrice Edwards on Tuesday and Thursday, and rehearsals on Wednesday and Friday, so the week is going to be busy.

Not too many hours to just loaf around like I did today.


  1. i was thinking, your chiropractor can't be that expensive you seem to be there almost every day....

    you were going to ask patrice edwards about her english base?

  2. My insurance pays for the chiropractor.

    Thanks for reminding me about Patrice's English base. I will remember to ask her.
