I found Phantom contentedly grazing when I arrived today and he seemed happy to see me. Huge dust cloud when grooming. Quick longe and 15 minutes of trot work and a few lateral moves, and I called it good. Both of us content to resume our usual schedule.
So, between my mother's unexpected overnight stay at the hospital, the writers conference, and Phantom's bout with cellulitis -- I hope I'm done for awhile. Sheesh!
By the way -- this isn't my saddle. It's a look alike Berney Brothers dressage saddle.
