Horse of many colors

O has finally decided to ditch the winter coat and shed out. And I just love her darker coat! I really hope this weird reddish hair goes away quickly.

Awkward neck beard.

More weird red hair.

And yes, we are still rocking the mohawk.

I rode this cutie today!!

She says "Come back here, I can't fit!"

She says “Come back here, I can’t fit!”

I’m at week three, and although I’m ahead of my doctors recommendation, I feel great! I feel like I normally do, I’ve been back to working out and being active like normal. So I thought I’d just sit on her today. Then it felt so good, I thought why not a little trotting eh? That led straight to a short canter both directions, and some poles. When I got off I my body felt kind of jelly-like for not riding for weeks, but overall my back is holding up really good! Plan is to see how I feel tomorrow, and if still good-then to ride again. Maybe a lesson is in the forecast for me! Feels so good to be back in the saddle!

  1. Nice you’re back in the saddle, but take your time. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you may feel today’s ride tomorrow. Still, getting back in the saddle is a big deal. Congrats!

  2. Loki has those long bleached/red hairs too, can’t wait for them to all go away!

    Glad to hear you are feeling better!

  3. I’m glad you got to ride again and felt okay doing it. Hopefully you feel all right after. I’m sure O will be happy to have her rider back 🙂

  4. At my end of the globe it’s mid autumn, so the horses are just starting to become awfully fluffy… my TB still looks fine but the little grey native pony is a giant hairball. Time to break out the clippers. Good luck brushing out those red hairs – can’t wait to see what O looks like in her beautiful new dark bay summer coat!
