Happy Anniversary

Jason and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary today. After a few years of marriage we both still like each other a lot so I think we're on the right track! I wish he would pick up his dirty socks and he wishes I would shut up about it but all in all we don't have too many complaints. We had a nice dinner at Stoney River Steakhouse.

You might remember that we helped Jason's friend out by letting him film a portion of his horse nutrition video at the farm. As a thank you he gave us a gift certificate to Stoney River. A couple of months ago we finally got around to using our gift certificate . . . except we forgot to take it with us. However we did manage to remember to bring it along tonight.

This morning the chiropractor was out to work on Bonnie and Lexi bright and early. I thought it would be a good idea to have them both looked at and they were actually adjusted last week as well. They will be adjusted again in two weeks and then they should be fine to be on a six month maintenance program. I mentioned that Lexi had her left hind stifle injected a couple of weeks ago. Well, as it turns out her sacroiliac joint was out of alignment (apparently WAY out) so that was most likely a major contributor to her stifle issue. I wish I hadn't waited to have the chiro out. Bonnie's always been a lot fussier about her right lead than her left and there was a huge difference for the better after her adjustment last week as well.

Thankfully this week has continued to stay very quiet and hopefully that will continue through the weekend.

A very happy anniversary to you! - my husband and I are coming up on 28 this summer (now, that's hard to believe - how time flies). Glad your mares liked the chiro - Maisie also had that sacral/stifle issue when I got her - partly due to compensating for a hind suspensory injury on the other leg. Love the pictures - Winston looks very happy!

Happy Anniversary!! As long as those are your only complaints, I think you are doing quite well :) So, when's the renewall in Vegas?? lol

I know you suggested that because of my mares trouble with her left lead, the chiro might be a good idea. It is. When the chiro came out for the girls in Nov., they acted totally renewed. Once I get a job again (had an interview yesterday, cross your fingers for me) I am definitely making an appt asap for them. Chiros are a wonderful thing.

For buster's first picture, I was going to say, wow, that is a WIDE hind end!! lol thankfully it was a cow.
