I've been sick with a nasty cold virus for going on 3 weeks now. I am finally starting to get better, but I can't say I'm completely over it until this nagging cough goes away. I haven't been out to ride but once in all that time. That was Sunday. Monday and Tuesday I spent with my grandson who ended up with the same virus. Probably got it from me.
Tomorrow I am scheduled to ride in a clinic, so I will be going out to the barn later today to get in a short ride and some cleanup. My new bit that the clinician suggested last month finally came in on Saturday and I haven't tried it out yet. Now I'm thinking I might just save it for tomorrow and let her see how we do with it. There are new mirrors up in the arena since we last rode, and I'm not sure I'm up for new bit and new mirrors on the same day! There is a reason I call him Boo afterall.
To top it all off my darling little corgi has had some kind of reaction to what I don't know, and she now has a very nasty sore on her muzzle. Yesterday the vet did a biopsy because the treatment she has prescribed so far doesn't seem to be working. I am worried sick because she has said if it's not bacterial or fungal she would then be worried about autoimmune disease or neoplasm. I know if we go there the treatment she will prescribe will be steroids and those scare me too. I'm grasping at straws and wondering about food allergy etc. but the vet doesn't seem to be thinking along those lines. In the meantime I'm keeping her with me nearly all the time to try and keep her from rubbing the muzzle even more raw. Can't keep her from licking it. Arrgghh! February has not been my favorite month!
