Everyone knows both my horses are crippled. So I don't ride unless I borrow someone else's fine steed. I'm lucky enough to have a wonderful friend that allows me to use his horse for the ranch rodeos. I rode 'ol Pete at both. We get along okay but it's not like riding your own horse. Plus the effects of a crippled horse are SORE BUTT! I haven't rode in 4 months and the 5+ hours of riding I did on Sunday are being felt in places I would have never imagined! I tried explaining it to the husband last night. It went something like this......
The Wife: "Man, my butt bones sure are sore!"
The Husband: "Butt bones? You only have one butt bone and it's called a tailbone."
The Wife: "Duh, I know what a tailbone is, but this is different. It's where you sit that hurts."
The Husband: "What, cheek bones?"
The Wife: "Here, let me show you!" Bend over and point!
The Husband: "Guess you need to start doing squats."
The Wife: "NO! It's not muscle sore, it's bruise sore. I don't need to do any squats!"
The Husband: "Huh."
So I make my way thru the day gingerly sitting on my chair, thank goodness it is cushioned!
But I wouldn't mind one of those donuts to sit on!
