As our rehab journey comes to an end (thank goodness), I’d like to take the time to thank everyone who helped in the healing process. Also, stay tuned for a new series where you’ll get to continue following Funny Bunny B along with becoming acquainted with my other horses!
I have started riding Buns bridleless in order to get a good indication of where our weak points are in Buns’s training and my riding. Buns is advanced enough in his training that this is a safe option for us.
It’s nice to get a trained eye to critique you. It has allowed me to reflect and work on my and Buns’s weaknesses while we’ve been trail riding. I thought Buns was back normal but I learned we still have a lot of work to do.
“I may be being over protective and a little overboard with how cautious I’m being, but better safe than sorry…I will always do what’s in the best interest of Buns and I hope in return he makes a full recovery.”
“I feel like the meme of the girl and guy laying in bed thinking two totally different things. I’m thinking, ‘How’s the tendon healing? Will Buns make a full recovery? Will we be shooting partners again?’ Buns is probably thinking, ‘Wonder when my next meal is.'”
“Tick tock, tick tock. I was losing my mind. And then, there it was — the x-ray picture of Buns’ fracture.” Read more to see what the X-ray showed, what new interventions we’re implementing and a rough timeline of Buns’ recovery. (more…)
“I can not tell you how many times I marched right back into the pen and took him back into the barn thinking, ‘Not today, Buns. Not today.’ I was not taking any chances, or giving Buns any chances, of re-injury.
“I have to put faith in the process, my veterinarian and most of all Buns that the interventions are helping… I want to know that my partner is going to be back at his full capacity, but the reality of it is, he may not be.” (more…)
“My goal for Buns since the day of his accident was to provide all the resources I had available to ensure his healing process was smooth and efficient…Around approximately week two post injury, proud flesh decided to rear its ugly head.”
