Well Wednesday is not gonna be wordless this week cause I am feeling really bad right now and need to share. I went to ride last night and as I was brushing Jessie I noticed she has what looked like a cinch gall.
It is kinda in a weird area though and I wasn't sure what was going on, so I put my saddle on anyway just to see where is hits and it doesn't.
I wonder if I pinched it or if it just rubbed. I am thinking I may need to go back to my cotton cinches. I always was suspicious of the neoprene but everyone was using them and I never had a problem before. But I know I have never had trouble riding all day in the cotton ones so I think I will go back to that. I did ride her a little since I was there and it wasn't really touching the sore but she wasn't overly cheerful so we quit early and I put goop on it. I am thinking I may bring over my ranch saddle today and try it, I think the cinch sits in a little different spot and hopefully wont irritate it. On Sunday morning she was being really grouchy to all the other horses and I thought she was maybe going into heat but now I wonder if she was just sore. I took her back to the stall and unsaddled her and left her a couple hours and then resaddled for cow work afterwards, but she seemed to ride fine. Now I am paranoid about stuff. Hope she gets better soon and I don't do it again.
