I've been having some problems lately with my hips. It's nothing new but my old stretches just aren't cutting it. My latest problem is my knees have started hurting. They don't hurt when I rest but on the other hand if I don't move enough my hips hurt. I've been playing what joint hurts the most lately.
I haven't been pushing for much when I have been riding because Stinker dislikes tight hips and my knees don't appreciate stirrups. Mostly we have been playing on the hills. We went for a short trail ride with some of the girls (he was mostly well behaved). I gave him a bath and fixed (actually screwed up) his mane. I still haven't figured out how to trim his mane evenly.
He has been protesting against the alfalfa/timothy mix I have been trying to use up. Seriously, there were a couple pellets of safe choice in that bucket that he just had to eat instead of his pan full of alfalfa/timothy. Keep in mind I tried to feed him safe choice for awhile but he stopped eating it. As in refused to touch it even if I tried to hand feed it to him.
Overall, I have been enjoying our light week. And I'm hoping to get myself lined out so we can get back to the real work this week.
