And then this happens.....

I broke my foot!

I know.

I can't believe it either.

I now finally have enough subsiding of the pain for awhile to reach the computer to let you all know.

Its pitiful and it could not have happened at a worse time.

three agility classes, agility training on my new equipment, dog show this weekend, sheep show next weekend, training sheep to be halter trained. I have three different people coming for sheep that they bought from me in the next six days. I still have to clean barn, clean house, tag sheep, health papers, wormers etc. Oh and I have a job....Labor Day weekend i have all sorts of yards to mow, trim and blow off driveways....I can't walk, and I sure as heck shouldn't be driving.

Four weeks of elevated foot, little work and lots of ice. WTH am I supposed to do? this is going to KILL me. cast, cruthces, no stressing the foot. I told her I farmed and did landscaping/lawn service. she giggled and then said...oh well....just remember I warned you.

ugh...

If i didn't have bad luck, I wouldn't have any at all!

I'm sooo sorry to hear this Garrett. It's always so hard to find the silver lining in these things but it's in there somewhere. Sending hugs and good wishes for a safe and speedy few weeks.

Oh Garrett, that's no good at all! Did you try to dance toe-to-toe with one of your big Simmentals? I hope you can get by with a little (a LOT) of help from your family and friends.

Oh Garrett, that stinks! You are too busy to be hurt, I hope you get through this time alright and still getting the rest you need to heal properly. The last thing you want is any permanent damage/pain cause you over did while healing Take care of yourself.

You're preachin' to the choir here, Garrett. I've been on crutches for 7 weeks from a broken leg. (thank God for Chuck)

YOU POOR THING!!!! Don't get frustrated, don't be too proud to ask for help, and read all those books you've been meaning to. It will be healed before you know it!

Garrett, which bone did you break? Will you need surgery?
You will have to have barn help, I'm afraid. After I broke my foot, I was able to do a little out there, I put the cast in a garbage bag to keep it clean. The sheep either spooked wildly, or came up and tore at the bag with their teeth. Curious creatures that they are.
After surgery, forget it. I was bedridden & in agony for weeks. Hopefully you won't need surgery!

Oh, Poor you, Garrett!
I live too far away to help, I'm afraid . . .

A breed I can't stay away from

its true I guess that I would be first known for the fine wooled Shetland Sheep that I have procured and traveled across the USA and UK to ...
