because i woke up at 04.30

for some reason (pain in my neck, tingling in my fingers, overheating badly) and then started working at 5 (nothing else to do when awake at that hour, and not wanting to wake partner) i was totally knackered by 5 pm .. no energy to do anything with molly, so didn't, just fed her and applied cream to another wound on her flank.  and didn't notice the skinned inside aspect of her off hind until after i'd turned her out again!  the mind boggles how that happened, but it is just skinned, no wound, no bleeding etc.  i'll have a closer look tomorrow.. but if i'd groomed her i probably wouldn't have noticed until i got kicked for touching it!

hopefully i'll get a good night tonight; i've changed my pillow, think partner had put the wrong one on last time sheets changed...doesn't help.

I kept waking up last night too. Something with the earth's gravity or something?

I have to be super careful with my pillow too. One mistake and my neck goes "out." Hope you are feeling better.

I never know where my horses get their various scrapes sometimes. What do they do, sit on things?

Sounds like you're having a rough time Claire, I hope you feel better soon. Horses, eh, always getting into scrapes.

Feel better soon! I often wake up too early and have trouble going back to sleep, and then pay for it later in the day.

Hope you get your rest this evening. I have one of those temperpedic pillows...can't sleep on anything else. Horse will find a way to scrape themselves up on a blanket:-) At least they heal quickly with a good dab of Furizone.

Ah yes, the overheating in the early morning, not fun and not fair.
