|New fav pic of McKenna
The plus side is that I'm super, super, super happy about the new job and can.not.wait! to leave my current one. I know a lot of my lack of riding/blogging/general unhappiness is due to stress from my job. I fully expect stress and issues at the new one but it can't be as bad as where I am now. And it's going to shave 30mins of my commute each way so that almost equals out the extra hours.

I was starting to do some ride on Tia, including three or four really nice and relaxing field rides with friends, until she came up lame and wouldn't work out of it. We had the vet out and she was very reactive on her suspensory. Our vet doesn't have a mobile ultrasound so we didn't see what was going on but he felt like it wasn't something major, probably a strain. She never had any heat or swelling in the leg and was only slightly more lame then she normally is when she first starts out. She's on 15mins of walking with twice daily Surpass for another week and then we'll recheck. If she's not better we'll take her in for the ultrasound. The plan was after I sell McKenna to lease Tia thru the winter but we all know how the best laid plans with horses usually turn out.
