Long time no write, not by choice. But I wanted to just give a quick update on the CatDogHorse crew.
Malcolm is still doing great. His motor never stops running and those feet of his never stop kneading. Such a lovebug!
Inara just celebrated her 11th birthday yesterday! 11! How does that even happen? She did spend part of her celebration time at the vet getting a bump checked out, but fortunately it was just a lipoma so nothing to worry about. She’s healthy as a horse!
Renata is doing amazingly well. We are working on getting her to wear a saddle and bridle while lunging. She is sassy sometimes (which is just fine!), but she’s learning to settle in and go pretty quietly and respond to voice cues. She and I are learning together, and it’s wonderful!
I managed to get my hand badly broken (and a hoofprint on my stomach!) when Renata playfully kicked out about 6 weeks ago. She broke the 5th metacarpal so badly that I had to go to three surgeons to find one who could fix it. I now have 2 pins, a plate, and screws. Recovery is very slow going and it’s still painful and has VERY limited mobility. Very frustrating. But I’m doing what I can. So that’s why there haven’t been updates for 6 weeks! I promise to try to do better!
