monday musings by shyloh #52

Dr. Dave, the chiropractor came today. He had terrible news. Horrible! It was awful, I tell ya, just awful. 

He said. . .
Super sad face
He said. . .

He said basically that I was fine and I needed more work (!) to strengthen my muscles, especially my rear end muscles. They were very, very tight. More work! Riding work! Trot poles! And a massage to boot.  He told Allie that I was passively using my rear end, but not actively. So I was always prepared for it to be painful and expecting pain, even when there was none. He sure figured me out. He had not one good bit on news for me, except the massage part. 

My back is fine and I won't be seeing Dr. Dave for six weeks. Good, I say! He brings me bad news!

Bad news all around today. Allie kept talking about a fun and special trip we were going to go on today. At first she wouldn't say where, but she did say my buddy Casi was coming, too. Then it rained all day and we didn't go anywhere. Allie told me that we were gonna go to the lake nearby, where they have this bay and we were gonna try to swim! But this was the closest we got to swimming today. . .

Oh well. I also got to work on standing on my mat. I got a ton of treats for that! I am so good at it.

So I guess I need to come up with more ways to get out of work. I have a feeling I will be getting into shape in no time. I am open to any ideas to not work! Poor poor pony, I am.



  1. Fantastic news! If it makes you feel any better, Dreaming has got to start moving her back end, too! Her back has been hurting and it is all because she's getting fat and lazy!!

    1. I'm happy, Shy. . .I have a feeling that she won't be too thrilled!

    1. Yes! Great news! Shy will learn to deal, I'll do my best to make it fun for her!

  3. Yay for Allie! Sorry Shy, but it is good for you, I promise. I look forward to hearing about swimming. That will be awesome!
