Dear Readers

Thank you so much for the concern and the good wishes that have been passed to me through the comments box and via email. It’s all very much appreciated.

The Grey Mare is currently on box rest. A week and a half ago, she went for x-rays, which have been sent to the Royal Dick in Edinburgh for a second opinion. I am still awaiting the results.

Today, a bone cruncher has been, who has found a sore spot on her shoulder. He thinks she had ripped a muscle and has prescribed massage. He says she is sound. In herself, she is bright as the proverbial button and adoring all the fuss and pampering. She is a very ‘nice person’ and is an adorable horse to handle. She is the perfect patient.

Her stress levels at having to stay inside (this is now her third week on box rest) have been mitigated by the fact one of her two boyfriends is also ‘under the vet’ and is currently residing the box next door. They make eyes at each other across the divide.

As for me, well, I’m knackered – and keeping everything crossed for a good outcome.

Love M&M.

PS. The Edwardian ring went for £177 – way way beyond my reach.

Lovely M&M,

I am so sorry to see the lovely Grey mare is still poorely. You sound exhausted. I am thinking of the two of you.

I hope all goes well.

I'll cross my fingers for you as well. Worrying is a very tiring business isn't it?

Here's hoping she's on the mend.

Really glad she's happy with her boyfriend. Box rest is no fun.

I think I need "box rest" myself. Resting in a "box" is my idea of heaven. I could stay there all day. Here's hoping the grey mare pulls through.

Delighted you're blogging again - thought you'd deserted us all. So glad the GM is recovering. Nothing like the love of a good man to make box rest more tolerable........

i had been checking in and was also concerned to find nothing so glad of the update that the 'oss is on the mend :)

i'd been bidding on some jewellery too and there was a lovely opal necklace that ended up going for about £200!

horse and dogs, who'd have them eh?

I pleased to hear you and the Grey Mare are both standing. The best diversion - having a flirty chap next stall.

You do sound done in; take care of yourself as well eh? I continue to have the Grey Mare in my prayers, and have a candle lit for her at all times. A good friend is a precious thing.

Omega Mum said...

V sorry to hear about Grey mare - and that's quite something given normal feelings about horses since Beth's broken arm. Do hope better soon and your nerves also.

@themill said...

Have you retired from blogging?

Marianne said...

What a saucy mare she is

Hope you will be back blogging soon. The blogosphere isn't the same without you.

*worried*

dulwichmum said...

Dear M&M,

Please come back, even just to tell us how the grey mare is. I am worried about you.

Horse Owner said...

I hope the grey mare is recovering now.

My old horse had a nasty fall on the road at age 25, he recovered and went on to get placed in his 1st advanced dressage test at the age of 26!
