We are going on vacation! It is our 1st real vacation since 1987! Sure, we've had a weekend here and there, but a whole week? No way. It's hard when you have critters. We are awaiting the ranch/house/horse/dog/cat/fish/plant sitters right now. Our sitters are Rey and Jen. Rey was Dr. Gary's vet tech for many years, so he knows our horses very well. He's the one that named Paj, our delicate horse, "Bubble Boy". Now Rey manages a small animal hospital. His girlfriend Jen is a vet tech at another animal hospital. So our critters are in very good hands.
We are off to the World Equestrian Games in Lexington, KY. It is the 1st time this event has taken place in the US. An added bonus for me is that Paj has the same sire as Pikardi, a horse on the Canadian team. Plus Lexington is one of my favorite places. Paj was born in Lexington. It's horse heaven. I'm pretty excited.
We need a vacation. David has been working way too hard. And I've hit a rough spot in my physical therapy. The first part went just great. But now we're working on rotation. Ouch. A week off is just what I need.
