Limerick update

Things have slowed down, Limerick-wise. I ride when I can, but not as regularly as I would prefer! Lim was doing well until Monday--that night, she was covered in mud on her left side when I arrived at the barn. I was all set to ride, but as I groomed her I realized that something wasn't right. I couldn't put my finger on it until I began uncovering the mud on the left side of her butt.

Underneath the dry mud was a gigantic lump--a hematoma. Ouch--poor baby probably got kicked in turnout.

So I've been treating this hematoma for the past few days. I guess our riding schedule will remain irregular until the new year, but that's okay. That's what happens sometimes.
