Sierra finally drove me nuts enough to kick her out into the pasture and within a week she had injured herself. In natural mare fashion, she was stoic as heck and didn't show any lameness. Admittedly, I didn't even find it until after I rode because I just gave her a super quick brush because we were pressed for time. Once discovering it, I decided to give her time off to heal. It didn't hit anything of importance luckily, but I want to stay on top of it's healing. She's locked back up in a paddock and the wound itself is about 60% healed but we're still dealing with some swelling. Life has been absolute insanity lately so I am very behind in blog land, so here's a quiet Friday post to keep things moving until I have some decent content to share.
