So we've recently started doing some cavaletti work to get Gisha to practise lifting her legs - she likes to drag that sick front leg and doesn't like to lift the same side hind leg. The latter is probably due to that forcing her to put a lot of weight on the sick leg, but it's also having an effect on her balance and agility in that leg and since that side is the one she always chooses to lie down on, that leg needs to do most of the work in pushing her back up. Hence, exercise for that leg.
She doesn't like it, but I think it is helping ... of course maybe that's just wishful thinking, but for now we're keeping it up. Current Mood: hopeful

|Easter and a Dog
Ups, I've been neglecting my posting here again!
I'd intended to post about Easter and my cousin's visit - which was very nice. Dad took us all out to the restaurant - one I hadn't been to in ages since it was too cold to sit outside. (I'm not sure what the problem with the one we went to last year was. We sat inside then as well, though it has more room outside. There were enough available tables, though. Oh well, the other one was very nice, too.)
It was very nice to talk with my cousin, though of course she as usual staid too long. She cooked dinner, though, which made up for it nicely.
And then coming home from the stables one day last week I met my old primary school teacher. With her dog, a young German Shepherd that jumped up at me causing the teacher to apologise for her bad behaviour saying they were still working on that part of her training. - And I was fine. I petted the dog's head and thought what a darling she was.
What's so odd about that? I'm scared of dogs - though for most dogs, especially the small, cute and fuzzy ones it's just their barking that scares me. German Shepherds, Rottweilers and Dobermans, though scare me by their looks alone. Or maybe we're down by one breed now? That dog didn't bark so I don't know what my reaction to that would have been. Perhaps the huge Rottweiler of the neighbours that moved out a few months ago had a desensitising effect after all? Or rather her leaving did?
Or perhaps it is that I have learned to be more scared of people again. Maybe I'd transferred my fear of people to dogs and don't need the dog-fear anymore now? That'd be nice. Current Mood: accomplished

Just got a mail from Berta. It seems Gisha did lie down tonight - and managed to get up alright, though she has managed to scrape her hip and legs in the process. You'd think she has enough straw not to do that at the moment, but oh well, it's not the first time that she's gotten some scrapes that way. She'll be fine.
Also, we are finally de-worming our horses tomorrow. - Berta and I coordinate that since our horses share a paddock sometimes. In consideration of Gisha's age and health condition we didn't want to do it just before a change in the weather and that has dragged it out quite a lot this year. Current Mood: calm

Send me a character name and I’ll tell you three things I have in common with them and three things I don’t.
Or at least I'll try. If I don't know the character at all, I might have to refuse. Current Mood: curious

|Saturday, January 28th, 2006|
So, I finally got around to no. 1. ... Still looking for a good idea for the second and third prompt, though.
Title: A Desperate Plea
Fandom: Yami No Matsuei
Characters: Touda’s mother and her master (Touda is mentioned)
Prompt: 001. Beginnings.
Word Count: 336.

Summary: Raising a slave takes a lot longer than buying one and can get more expensive as well.

|Runaway Dragon No. 1
I should probably warn you right now: This is the longest fic I've written so far. I'll be posting this one for a while.
You'll notice that Hogsmede is quite a bit bigger in this story than in the books. It's not a village. It's a big town, not quite a city, but it's still inhabited by magical folk only.
And Snape will seem a little (OK a lot) OOC. That's because I'm showing him as a private man with a family and he couldn't be lonely and bitter for that. He's still the same old bastard to the Gryffindors, but hes kind and loving to his family and Draco is his favourite after all.( Read more...Collapse )
A/N - So what do you think? Did Lucius kill Narcissa? Will Snape find the owner of 'That Dog'? Will Draco take Muggle Studies? Please R/R.
In the next chapter: We meet the rest of the Snape family. Get a visit from a very impolite man and Draco wants to go to the park. Current Mood: cold

|Another one for Fanfic100
This is actually the first one I wrote for the challenge. Yes, I've got a few finished that I haven't posted, yet. Just in case I don't write any new ones for a while at some point ;).
Title: Sneaking In
Fandom: Yami No Matsuei
Characters: Touda, (Tenkuu and SohRyu mentioned)
Prompt: 018. Black.
Word Count: 441.
