A beautiful Sunday!

Despite forecasts for rain all weekend, today has turned out to be a beautiful day. I didn't have a lot of time, but I did manage to get out to the barn for a little bit this afternoon — and I even managed to convince Michael to come with me!

The swelling on Panama's knee is completely gone now, and the small cut is perfectly clear. Panama has also stopped trying to pull away when I handle that leg. I've been wanting to start riding regularly again, but I was waiting until his mystery injury stopped bothering him; now that he's doing better, I think I may try to ride a couple of times this week.

Michael and I also walked a little ways down the nearby horse and bicycle trail. It's a gorgeous trail and will be a lot of fun to ride, but I need to first get both Panama and I back into shape, and start working with him a little more on extending his comfort levels beyond the pasture.

I actually would have like to have spent longer at the barn today — Panama was being really sweet, and it was such a gorgeous afternoon. However, I have some work that I need to do, and that has to take precedence. Panama's spring vet visit is coming up, so I have need of the money!

I'm glad you were able to spend some happy time at the barn with Panama and getting excited about the riding trails with Michael, too.
I hope you'll soon have time to ride more often and get Panama on those pretty trails like you're wanting to do.

Aaahhh, Springtime vet visits. Baby Doll's due next month, too. (Hey, Spring actually starts in June up here. lol!)
I'm glad Panama's knee is better, too.

I think I've mentioned before that we don't really HAVE spring in Colorado... just winter and summer duking it out. For instance, it was snowing a week ago, and now it's 70 degrees every day.

I'll have to take some pictures of those trails sometime soon. Wish I'd thought to on Sunday, but I gave the camera to Michael and he promptly FORGOT about it!
