It hurt a lot to get to where I was. It will hurt to get back some semblance of my life back.

I started looking at Tennessee Walker horse ads this morning….. and found my DREAM horse. A breeder in Ennis is breeding Appaloosa “Indian Shuffler” gaited horses. I didn’t know that any were in Texas. I’ve only found them in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming, priced well out of my reach. These had no prices listed, so will more than likely still be dream horses. The original Nez Perce Appaloosas were gaited. After the Indians were put on a reservation, their horses were taken and cross bred with everything in an effort to destroy the war horses. When the breed was revived, it was patterned after Quarter Horses. Very few gaited Appaloosas survived. I’m thrilled to find these. Maybe I can go see them. Dreams sometimes come true.

Was at PT at 7:30 this morning. They stretched out the knee/leg. Ouch! I came home, stopped in driveway to get out and go pet Anatolians. I’ve sure missed them. I got something to eat, packed knee on ice and took a nap. Exhausted.

Son took me to Texas Roadhouse last night. Got a ribeye, salad , baked potato, loaded. I’ll have the rest of it tonight for supper. He left out this morning for a job.

I went in the sheep lot last night with the walker. Scared them silly, but Ewenique finally came up for scratches. Freaked dogs out, but Sentry wanted his momma so bad, he didn’t care what contraption had a hold on me. LOLSheba was highly suspicious, kept circling and finally fell over at sons feet for tummy rubs. I got dog hugs and was happy.

I’ve had a rough couple of days, sleepless, painful nights. I’ve been miserable. I feel better today and used my outside walker to go see Sentry and Sheba. I sat on the seat and petted both through the fence. I decided to walk to the mailbox. Driveway is about 1/8 of a mile. I was chugging along and realized I had an escort!

I love me some cow TV, even better when they are my own personal escort! Aren’t they so darn pretty?

You may want to walk less and concentrate on making yourself lift the knee more like marching to get the bending going better... it is so easy to do more "shuffle walking" because it is more stable on the ground... but then it takes away from the necessary bending. I still tell myself to bend the knees more when I walk....

I’m gonna have to agree with you on that. Ewes are in the yard. I spent most of the morning outside with them. Absolutely gorgeous day, just couldn’t stay inside. Aren’t they sweet??

Got tired, went in. Fried some catfish, ate, heard CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH. Went outside. Ewes are rubbing on underskirting of mobile home.

First we eat these nice weeds, then we scratch our numbskulls on this nice scratchy stuff Mom has!

I had to push their butts with the walker! Go back in, ice pack on knee. CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH. Back outside push lazy butts away from house. Hey! Whatever happened to y’all being AFRAID of this walker?

Every 10 minutes, rinse repeat. Then I started squinting them with the water hose. They ran from that! Hahaha! I WIN! I’d no sooner get back in recliner, foot up, ice pack on, then one would look around, “Pssstt! Y’all !!! She’s GONE!!” And they’d be right back. That side of the house is in shade. It’s cooler there. Fine but do they have to cave in the underskirting?

I finally put them up. Feet up, knee iced. I need a nap.

Step counter says 1.3 miles. To heck with that!
