This morning I gave David a hand in the barn for morning chores. Then I walked Boomer down the lane. We're up to about two miles now. After our walk, I had a magical experience while I was laying a waterline to a new tree. Remember the photo I took yesterday of a feather caught in a sunflower? Today there was a golden eagle perched on the fencepost at that spot. We locked eyes before he took off. That was a thrill for me. I've seen them from a distance here, but that was my first close encounter.
Next, I went to my second physical therapy session. My very sweet and very young therapist told me that my shoulder joint is much looser than on my first session, and I am doing great "for a woman of my age". Humph!!! But really, I'm happy with my progress. We are still doing ROM exercises, and I am antsy to start strengthening exercises so I can get back to carrying water buckets and cleaning stalls.
In the afternoon, I gave Boomer a bath and trimmed Paj's mane before my hero Dr. Gary and his tech Stephanie came to give the horses their fall shots. They vaccinated Reggie, Paj and Boomer, checked their teeth (all good) and cleaned their sheaths. Dr. Gary rechecked Boomer, and said to put that good boy back to work. Yah! Boomer is a little larger on the left side of his withers and may always be, but he's sound.
I also found a new-to-me plant. Jan, who's a botanist, says it will be easier to identify it when it's more mature. Meanwhile, David has named it "Star Weed". I like that.
