Neglecting my horse

I'm sure you have noticed my lack of posts lately. My blogs aren't the only things I've been neglecting, though, I'm afraid — I haven't been to see my horse all week.

I hate it when I go through periods when I don't get over to see my horse, because I always feel so guilty. The last couple of weeks have been hectic, since my brother-in-law and his family just relocated to Denver. As a result, I haven't had as much time to work (I'm a freelance writer).

It's all come to head this week, when my deadlines finally caught up to me. I've been working more, but I've also had a few other things going on (such as my dog's surgery on Monday) that have kept me busy. The last time I made it out to the barn was on Sunday, and the last time I actually rode was my bareback ride almost two weeks ago. I even dreamed about trying — and not being able — to ride last night!

Unfortunately, Panama tends to forget his ground manners when he's left to his own devices for more than just a few days. I need to be sure I get up there this evening and remind him that he has a mommy — the vet is coming tomorrow to give Panama the rest of his shots, and I need him to behave himself for that.
