Bob is up and about, and I think he's not laying down at all for fear he won't be able to get up. :( He's also very sad to be alone, but I can't put anyone in with him. But he's darn cute, and I love to hear them call back and forth to each other with their foghorn voices. I'm going to try to get through my work week before I have to make any decisions. We'll keep a close eye on him.
I gave in and went to get some x-rays of my hip today. No bone chips or anything but there is evidence of chronic inflammation. Bone thickening? I'm confused. He didn't show me the x-rays. I'll go talk to my regular doctor about it at some point. If I could get it treated or do physical therapy so I could ride more comfortably, that would be awesome. This hip has been bad for a long time now, but of course now it's much worse. Glad to know I don't have to baby it and I can just move on! I have some stretches I'm supposed to do.
I'm unstable on rough ground, so I've just been petting the horses when I feed, and that's about it. They're cool with that.
