Nasty Chemo #4, which I did Nov. 17th, was, as promised, quite fatigue inducing! My legs sometimes feel like rubber! Instead of Triscuits, this week my carbs of choice have been Kraft Macaroni and Cheese with tuna and green beans, mashed potatoes, and tortillas from the Frontier restaurant smothered in butter….I may or may not be having a hard time buttoning my Wranglers…
But the grand daughters are here and that makes everything better!
Leilani also trotted and loped on Lucy. Lucy was super steady! Proud of her! Leilani did really well! It is so fun to share the horses with the girls!!
On the loping, Lucy did a roll back because I maybe moved my whip a little. Oops. That is probably not the best maneuver for a 5-yr -old kid loping for the first time…
It is not clearly visible in the video because Cometa’s head is in the way, but at the end, you can see Lucy set up and then she is suddenly going the other way. Leilani’s eyes got pretty big, but she stayed in the saddle. Considering she had no stirrups, I was darn happy she stayed aboard!
I am posting this early, so Happy Thanksgiving to each and everyone one!
I have so much to be thankful for!
