I can't believe it's been three months, but apparently it has. Which is exactly when our supply of happy-mare-juice is supposed to disappear.
I'm sorta hoping for a Hanukkah, festival-of-lights, style miracle. Like maybe the one day supply of regumate (/oil) will actually last us through the week (/8 nights), allowing me to enjoy a couple more rides before heading out of town...
I'm not sure how likely that is, but I am fully prepared for this to show up whenever we do run out:
Here's to hoping I still find P's sweet sleepy face when I show up to the barn.. If marewolf has taken her place, my plan is to give the mare a nice week off to deal with her first cycle, then see where we are at in terms of attitude.
If she's acting normal, we'll proceed without our happy-mare-juice and see how awful her second cycle is. I think there's a good possibility that her hormones weren't our biggest issue, but they were the frosting on an otherwise pissed-off cake. Perhaps having dealt with her feet and a few other issues, her cycles won't be the tipping point for her explosions. I've grown quite accustomed to rides without any bucking and I'd like them to continue...
But, if P's cycles do still cause her to explode.. Those ovaries are coming out.
Out, out damn spot!
