By late February, Jess’s recovery was progressing and there was a bit of light at the end of the tunnel. And then a gust of wind shot down that tunnel, blew a blanket into an Enzo who was having his feet trimmed, he jumped forward and spun Amy around, she lost her balance and landed on outstretched arm, and completely shattered her wrist (and all plans for the rest of the winter and spring).
A freak accident that sums up life with horses well.
Jess managed to take over chores at a bare minimum level, Kristen was thankfully able to travel to us a few days a week to keep the boys in work, and then it was Amy’s turn for recovery! All in all, not the winter and spring we had wanted. While all the humans are on stall rest (and still looking at prize lists), here’s to a better and more productive summer!
