Because of this, I haven't done any riding. In fact, the minute I found out I was pregnant, I stopped riding, even though one doctor said it would be okay for a little while longer. I just didn't want to take the risk. Not only of potentially losing the baby in an accident, but of just hurting my own self and then having to deal with a broken leg/neck/injury while pregnant.....not fun! By the time I am back on my feet and have the baby thing figured out (ha ha), it will be June/July~ the perfect time to start riding again! By then, Miss Luna will certainly need a refresher course. She's as sweet as ever but I'm sure she will be a spunky monkey! I know of some local people that I might put her into a month or so of training with just to get her going for me.
Have you read this book? I got it as a gift last spring and I have really been enjoying it. I really like how the author writes, it's very descriptive and paints a good picture of the characters.
Although when reading about the author/mare's first foaling experience, I had to chuckle. When Howdy was born at the ranch, I don't think we thought or worried about half of those things. He and Ruby did get some post-vet care of course, but all the actual birth happened without human assistance.

I'm sure your holidays are well under way! We might get a little more snow in the next few days....which would be nice and hopefully get me even more into the Christmas spirit! I am a bit tired of the rain and the mud it's creating. Granted, my mud is miniscule compared to the mud some people deal with (like Paint Girl) but usually we have a fairly dry snowy cold winter climate.
Until next time!
