Penny recomended yesterday that I might make a guest appearance and explain how I'm feeling. What a fabulous idea! I had never seen a computer before but my Human Servant showed it to me while she was preparing my foot spa and I decided to try it out since I had 20 minutes to stand there with my front feet in a bucket.
My name is Snap and I'm simply incredible. Really, no other mare can be in charge of me and all of the boy horses think I'm hot. The Human Servant is mostly well trained but I have to snap my teeth at her to make her aware of how annoying she can be.
The past few weeks are far too boring for me to go into.. CARROT?????WHERE??? DO YOU HAVE A CARROT??? I'M CUTE, PLEASSSSEEEE GIVE ME A CARROT!!! Darn, false alarm, I thought I heard the carrot bag and it was those stupid salt things that disolve in my foot spa.
Basically I've been tortured. I mean, if you think having a Human on your back is easy- its not. They boss you around and they make you do things you don't want to do. They're on your back so you either have to do it or buck them off. Usually its kind of entertaining to work with the Human Servant because she's nice to me and its cool when we work together as partners. But when I'm in pain its not something I want to be doing.
I've been foot sore, back sore, hock sore, kicked and scratched by other horses- all in the past few weeks. I'm big and tough but I have to say, sometimes it all gets to you. The only pleasure I've been having is spending TONS AND TONS of the Human Servant's money. If you think your VET is expensive, try having them come to you and bring the x-ray machine to you. Oh, and I have the VET do chiropractic on me too. I've seen two different VETs in the past month and this last time he poked me all over and said I need to have stuff injected into my hocks to make my back not sore anymore. Tomorrow the saddle fitter is coming to visit me. That also costs lots of green papers. Hahahaah!!!!!! Oh, and the Human Servant has to soak or cold hose my feet for a week. Oh, and she has to pack my feet with stinky mud with vinegar and stuff.
The only nice thing is all I have to do is pin my ears back, toss my head, swish my tail and the Human Servant backs off and doesn't make me do anything. It is GREAT!!! Although she picked up the whip yesterday so I had to work. Sigh...I'm still fighting though but when she doesn't fight back its not fun.
Thanks Kaze for letting me use your blog. Its really hard to type with hooves, especially sore ones. I'll keep you posted on my progress over the next week. For the time being I seem to be on the mend but my shoes really need to be worked on.
Oh, and I like kitties, they smell really interesting! We have 3 kitties at the barn and I like to sniff them.
