And We're Back

It seems I start my posts like this more often than not, but once again I feel the need to apologize for my absence.  Life has been crazy, and its only about to get crazier.  My exams start on the 25, and before that I have loads of end of semester work to complete.  I'll try my best to keep my blog posts to (at least) 3 a week... but (as I'm so often reminded) school is my priority here.
Okay, onto the pony.  Miss Cadence's leg looks fantastic.  Like unbeleivably fantastic.  Since her bout of colitis, all's been well with the mare, and on Friday I hopped on her back for the first time in nearly a month.  As of tomorrow, it will have been 1 month since she was first injured back in December.  On Tuesday or Wednesday, she'll have her stitches removed, and then we'll be just about back to regular work!  Well, we'll have about a month of rebuilding muscle and doing lots of straightening & suppleness work.  However, in her 2 'rides' (15 minutes at a walk) she's been bending and carrying herself pretty dang well if I do say so myself.
I'm going to attempt some pictures (and maybe a video) when I go out to the barn today, so If I'm successful hopefully I'll have something exciting to post tomorrow.
