Background to the story I'm about to tell: Just before Thanksgiving, a friend (the one who cantered Princess for the first time) and I went out to the barn where her mare and my baby live. They both needed feet done, so I did my baby and helped the friend with her mare. Me being me, I rasped off a chunk of my finger and it was bleeding kind of a lot. Friend was insisting I do something, so I was like "hang on, I think I have napkins and duck tape in my car, I'll be right back." So I bandaged my finger with a bit of napkin and some duck tape. Problem solved.
Now to the story... Monday I went over to friend's house for dinner and Christmas presents. She got me pink bell boots for River (awwww!) and pink polos with crystal tiaras (awwwww!!!!!)..... and best of all? A first aid kit! With Disney Princess bandaids!!! So now I'm never going to hurt myself again, because I'm totally prepared.
I got my Mare's ulcer meds (ranitidine). 12 pills a day! Thankfully she gobbles them right up. She's never actually been diagnosed with ulcers, but given her behavior I figure it's more than likely. And ranitidine is crazy cheap, so that's good.
Haven't ridden all week... just been busy and stuff.
