The trip itself isn't actually until early November, so in the meantime I must sit on my hands and watch gorgeous videos of prospects then hope no one else snaps them up in the meantime (for the record this makes me very anxious).
Prair has continued to happily rest in her stall. How she's keeping her wits about her, I have no idea - but honestly she acts like she hasn't been cooped up at all and this is totally normal.
Tomorrow (Monday) the mare has another checkup. I'm expecting that it won't be much different from our last several evaluations, and it will be sort of a final baseline before I move her to a good friends home for continued rest and rehab (thereby making room for what will hopefully be a new mount).
On the off chance that miraculous healing has been taking place - Prair will stay where she is and we will start the long (slow) process of bringing her back and seeing what we are working with.
The steady string of gorgeous prospects has made it easier to take the emotional pressure off Prair and her recovery time... but I am still crossing fingers and toes that we have, even minimally, good news to report.
In the meantime, it's important to keep boots polished, because... well, I don't really know why.
|next step is teaching her how to spiff these up on her own...|
