Well today has been awesome, but this evening terrible. This morning we met up with the boy's friend from work and went with her to see her horses. They're gorgeous and so well looked after! We had a short ride, but sadly within 1 minute of getting into the school the horse I was on, Seeky, decided to spook at something and completely caught me off guard so off I went! It wasn't a bad fall and I think poor Seeky was more freaked out that I'd come off than I was! My bum/bottom of my spine is majorly aching though, dreading what it will be like in the morning! No serious harm done though and we had a decent 'getting to know each other' ride. After we'd finished at the horses, we went for some nice pub food. It was a nice meal and was very filling! We also got caught in torrential rain and had to run back to the car. It was nice to meet someone the boy gets on with so well and she was a very nice girl, so hopefully we can go along again.
However, after we got home from visiting my parents we decided to clean the rats out as usual. We had them on the sofa whilst we washed their platforms and toys etc and out of nowhere Jacques decided to try and jump the 3 feet back into his cage. However, he missed, hit the side of the cage and fell a good 2 feet to the floor. He was shocked and just lay under the bookcase for ages, until we managed to get him back into his cage. We noticed him limping and decided to take him to the vet as it's not like Jacques to be so quiet and still. The vet said it looks like he's either damaged his ligaments or fractured his knee. He's had some painkillers and he's home for the night to see if the swelling goes down, but he has to go back in the morning for x-rays and then we'll see what damage has been done. Poor Jacques.
Trip To The Vets:
