I staggered to a start line this week. Left Sally in a nice stay (which she held no problem) and wandered up the dog walk side (2nd obstacle) released her - beautiful and walked up to the end of the dog walk ... by the time I got there she had done three or four extra jumps and had headed off to sniff along the fence line. I got her back on track but didn't slap myself upside the head. We did a few more obstacles. Better, but again, she was unsure of what I wanted so made up her own agenda (and course!). I actually picked her up and carried her to the aframe to reset her. I was a little freaked out at this point. Finished the run and it was OK but didn't feel lovely. Thought about it and realized I had let my immune weakened system run the show.
Enough of that.
