I apologize for neglecting my friends here at LJ. Since this morning, I will have some extra time on my hands. This morning I went to the corral at 6:30 and saddled up a horse that I hadn’t ridden that much. I rode out and wrangled the horses into the corral. As I started to sort up the horses into 2 pens, The knothead I was riding decided to start bucking. He was spinning to the left. As he came around I lost my right stirrup and that was the end of that. I landed on my right shoulder blade. Short story, I now have three broken ribs under my right shoulder blade. I am now assisting the former cabin girl with the wrangling chores. Luckily, we brought a cabin girl with us from Jordan Valley who just happens to be a dandy buckeroo. I hope to be able to go again in about 3 weeks.
On the plus side, this is still the prettiest l place to be, crippled or well. The weather is great and the guests are excellent. We are having a great time. Good luck to all my friends here at LJ.
