Just kidding. I haven’t had a slew of bad luck or anything but it has been raining an ungodly amount for California. I’m glad. We really need the water to help fight this 63 year drought (I’m trying to exaggerate but some quick research says I might actually be surprisingly close). Being cooped up has clearly gotten to the horses because even with turn out they still manage to hurt themselves.
Luckily it wasn’t more than an inch and a half but I still wanted some stitches because of all the mud. Plus the laceration involved the coronet band which is a high movement zone so I felt it was better to be safe than sorry. Apparently it was an old injury, which is really strange because I see my horses every night and spend time brushing them for this exact reason. I even have pictures from Monday night (stitches happened yesterday morning) that I’ve included in this post. Not that it’s a big deal. Cuts and scarring are going to happen. That’s just the nature of horses.
On to a totally different topic, I’m discovering that WordPress might not have been the best platform to go with for blogging. I know it’s super customizeable but I find the mobile app really clunky and even the website leaves a lot to be desired if you don’t want to get into html coding. I’m also having a hard time keeping up on comments I’ve left on Blogspot and Blogger pages. I’m using Feedly to follow blogs (which is great!) but it’s not very mobile friendly when you visit the actual blog to comment. I’ve had several comments get deleted because it randomly refreshes the page as I’m typing. If you ever want to see me silently rage, that would be the best time for optimum humor. Haha.
What’s the best way to keep up on conversations in the comment section? Should I get a Blogger and Blogspot account for notifications rather than use my Google sign-in?
