Happy anniversary?

Russell has been acting uncomfortable during recent rides, which has really bummed me out. Today Rick had time to examine him, and determined that Russell's neck was the likely culprit. Rick couldn't remember which cervical joints he injected last winter, so I checked my blog to see if I had documented it. Sure enough, I had - and also saw that it happened exactly a year ago today! See, a blog can be a very helpful tool! :-)

This time around Rick didn't have to shave Russell's neck, which will be nice if we get to any shows this spring. It's probably more comfortable for Russell, too, not having "cold spots" on his neck at this time of year. Hopefully by Sunday I'll have a chance to ride him and see if the injections have helped.

Jumping to a totally different topic.... I finally broke down and joined Ravelry. I have avoided it like the plague because it sounds like an enormous time pit, but so many other bloggers were linking to patterns there that I decided to join just to access them. So far I haven't even done that because of all the other things on my plate, so I don't think it's going to be a problem after all. I'm "sheepmademedoit" - a fitting name, I thought, since getting Shetland sheep precipitated re-learning to knit and learning to spin.

That's it for now at . . .

I shouldn't even ask, Becky, but what is your group and how do I find it?

Welcome, Shiloh Prairie Farm, and thanks for visiting! Hope you come back again often. :-)

That is so clever - great choice!!! You should start your own group with that name - for all the crazy sheep folks that got into all this (spinning, knitting, weaving,... even blogging!) because of sheep.

Oh yes, blogging! I forgot to add that the sheep led me to blog as well! But Sara, I can't start a group; I'm trying keep myself from the temptation of spending time on Ravelry, remember?

Look me up on Ravelry, I'm Windyridge!
It's fun to just look at what your friend's are favoriting, but yes, it can be a time sink. I've discovered some great patterns and it organizes your patterns, makes it easy to queue new ones up and is just plain fun.
