No Lesson Today After All

Well, I went to bed last night filled with anticipation, and woke up to a cup of bitter disappointment. ( To be needlessly wordy about it) Something came up with my instructor and I can't go for a lesson today. I'm really, REALLY disappointed. I was so looking forward to this. She's going to reschedule it, but I'm guessing it will be next week at the very earliest. It's going to be a beautiful day, too, 65 degrees and partly cloudy. I hope this will be the end of the wintry weather. We've had quite a few days, and even weeks, of subfreezing temps in the last couple months, and even though that's normal or maybe even warmer than normal for most of the country, we're just not set up for that here in South-Central KY.
Kelli seems to be affected by the cold more than usual this year. She spends a lot of time hanging out, doing nothing in the sun. Everybody gets hay outside during the day, but sometimes she prefers to just doze in the sun. She's been coughing too. I know she's had that cough for a long time. It gets worse in the summer, when the pollen is really out, and in the real cold of the winter. The vet gave her some powder for it, to put in her feed, but the cough only went away for a short time. I've asked our farrier's opinion on it, too. She's healthy in every other way. She eats well, isn't losing weight, in fact she's overweight, and there's no discharge from her nose and her eyes are as bright as ever. I guess as long as she isn't getting worse, I'll try not to worry too much.
