Living Vicariously

Oh woe is me!  Neighbor Chuck is off this weekend to Wyoming for a big cow horse show.  Team Elvis is off this weekend to Boulder for a really nice dressage show.  And I'm on injured reserve!  Drat!

So to cheer me up, friend Jan (Elvis' owner) sent me a link containing a free sample clip from the symposium we went to  (Elvis' first gig).  In the clip, Elvis is the training level horse Janet Foy refers to as an over-achiever.  Yes, it helps.  I'd rather be doing just about anything other than hanging around.  I'd love to be working side by side with my beloved David, cleaning our horses stalls.  I'd love to be scrubbing troughs (thanks, Funder), painting runs or doing pasture maintenance.  Heck, I'd rather even do housework.  Well, maybe not housework! ;)

Finally got around to returning the favor and stopping by your blog. Fabulous place you have. Sorry to hear your out of commission for a bit but hoping for a fast recovery!

Thanks for sending JB and I well wishes.

No, no, not housework!!! The rest, yes. Sending you healing thoughts so you can get out to mucking and feeding and riding and ..... :)

I have to agree with AJ-OAKS. Not housework. Just get better fast, so that you can get back to doing the things that you love.
