Happy Daylight Saving Time weekend! I truly love this time of the year when it starts staying light at night. More horsey time, more dog walk time, the start of grilling at night (once it warms the eff up). Things I hate are the dark mornings and having to figure out how to change the clocks in every place in the house and my truck (I do it twice a year you think I would KNOW how to do it by now in that damn truck).
But it really truly is a sign that Spring is really really coming. We got a bunch of snow on Wednesday again and it is gross outside. So gross, I am going to go see Dad this weekend since unless I haul out there is no way I can ride this weekend. Sally comes up next weekend to PA so I figure let’s go to VA this week (Plus I can pick up Sarah‘s and my blankets/sheets down in lower DE). Work smarter not harder, right? So don’t forget to push your clocks forward!
Some other tidbits from my week, I had my allergy testing on Thursday. Turns out I am not allergic to dogs or cats (whew, right?) but am allergic to about every tree known to man as well as several grasses, and some food sensitivity (tomatoes, oranges and shellfish?). All this means I have just have sensitivity to them. I had the worst headache on Wednesday so will be glad to get back to the Doc in a week or two to start treating this crap. (I thought it was sinuses, he says it is migraines but he wanted to rule out allergies).
None of my allergic reactions were above mild-moderate so I don’t think they are causing my headaches. ANYHOO, at least we are moving forward with treatment. Seems this winter I have had more headaches than ever before.
And let me share with you this stuff my farrier gave me to try (Well not gave, charged me to try). I think it is helping and I need to get photos of his hooves but it is called Groom’s Hand. It comes in a cool aerosol can with a hoof pick attached at the bottom of it. And it is purple. The first time I tried it, I got purple all over my hand. Don’t judge me people, I am one of those people that always gets Sharpie or paint or whatever all over me. BUT I do like the way it sprays out and covers the hoof just where you want it and gets deep in the frog. My farrier got it at a farrier’s conference but it is available online so if your horse has a tendency to have thrush or really wet hooves I would give it a try!
So have a good weekend all. I hope you have a wonderful horsey weekend compared to mine (duty calls with Dad). Also I have potential news about us possibly moving which is not going to make lots of us happy (including me) but you know you gotta do what you gotta do to keep money coming in (I am not the bread maker, duh). It might be the South for us but not the South we wanted. Will keep all posted.
And finally for your viewing pleasure(TGIF). Ollie who may think he is part cat! HA
