i can’t stand it any longer, i need to come clean.

i was asleep but i just woke up and the first thing that popped into my mind was the brownie sitting in my fridge.
soooo i got up to eat it.
and while i was sitting in the computer chair enjoying my late night treat i was casually watching the horses thru the cameras.
and that’s when i remembered that i previously posted something totally untrue.
i had posted previously that skye was no longer cribbing. but there is skye, tonight in the camera cribbing away in full view.
i did not intend to lie or spread misinformation, esp. in making us sound pretty darn wonderful in curing him when we didn’t.
but here is the worst part..i said what i said not to mislead but because i really believed it and did not know i was actually stupid.

here is what happened and how this occurred…
unbeknownst to me the staff switched the horses…skye went into dixies stall and dixie went into rudy’s which i thought was now skyes.
both horses are brown and in the dark barn with very dim light the horse who i thought was skye and not cribbing was really dixie not cribbing because dixie never has cribbed in her entire life.
and do you know how i eventually discovered my mistake?
i said to mo one day…you will think i am crazy but dixie is growing, she is way taller.
mo laughed and said that is because dixie had like a foot of shavings in her stall and that is why she looked so much bigger.
and i thought this was funny so i told ali the story and she looked at me like i was insane and said you do know dixie and skye switched stalls right?
no i did not. so all along i was looking at the wrong horse.
i am stupid. and i told a lie but because of that brownie i have now confessed.
sooo..dixie is not growing and skye is still cribbing and i probably need to get my eyesight checked.
everyone does tell me that skye is cribbing less but we didn’t cure him like i originally said.
sorry for being so utterly dumb.

    Skye is still cribbing but not nearly as much as before. I suspect old habits are very hard to break. He is so much calmer now. It’s a beautiful this to see.

    A brownie wouldn’t have done it for me I would have had to have a glass of wine then blurted out the truth lol

    It’s not a lie when you just make an honest mistake…you’re the most honest person I know Carol…..You don’t know how to lie. ❤

    On Saturday we didn’t see Skye cribbing on the gate at all! He normally comes and chews it up… but he was down eating grass all day instead 🙂 Little steps!
