And–best of all–I can see very well indeed. Much better than I’ve been able to see for decades, and all without contact lenses or glasses. That feels like a miracle.
Wintertime is a good time to schedule such a lengthy “time off,” I suppose, given the number of days that it’s truly unpleasant to be at the barn. But I have missed my guys SO much! I managed to visit, usually only for a drive-by feeding, once or twice each week…but as any horse lover knows, that is NOT enough.
I have some ideas of new ways I want to work with them–Carolyn Resnick has great suggestions, both in her online classes and on her blog. But mostly, for the first few days, I just want to hang out with them–that’s what I’ve missed the most.
The weather for the next week is warm(ish) and sunny–perfect timing! I’ll let you know how it goes.
