Beauteous Is My Horse Indeed
Well, since returning from my vacation to see my family on the East coast (Philadelphia), I have not been able to ride! Jackson had his small but MASSIVE surgery and I want to make sure that it is completely healed before I ride him. The vet said two weeks, but I say longer. I am not thrilled with the way it looks, but I will be taking the stitches out on Wed. so we shall see! I called the vet and she explained that she made the incision longer because of the area that it was located; she felt it would heal better and I wouldn't have as many problems in the future if she made a longer cut. The theory being it would have less scar tissue in the girth area to rub and breakdown in the future. Makes sense, but we shall see. I did give him a big scrubby bath and bridle path trim the other day, but of course I forgot my camera so I missed photo ops of the shiny beautiful guy! Since (sigh) I don't have tons of fun horse rides and lessons to post (serious withdrawal) I am going to post some beautiful pics of Jackson I took about a month ago. I even had the last picture turned into a photo pendant by our fellow blogger at Five O'Clock Somewhere! It turned out so great, I wear it every day to work! And she has it on a Scrabble tile, the letter on the back is a 'J' for Jackson!
