Thankfully, Courtney and Smarty Pants are recovering after their fall. Courtney is all wrapped up in braces and slings for broken shoulders and collar bones. He is resting at home - Lizzie is taking great care of him. Smarty is back at his farm enjoying his paddock - thankfully, he is well.
Last weekend was a frightening time - the unexpected and uncertainty had us in a panic. Everyone quickly rushed to action and got Courtney to the best care in the area on Monday morning. The Commonwealth Orthopedic team is world-class, and is treating Courtney like the they do all their famous Redskins football athletes!
Here is Courtney's message from his Facebook page Nov 5 following his doctor visit - "Thank you for all of the well wishes. I plan on having a good recovery so I can be back riding as oon as I can. Saw the doc again yesterday and he says the operation is not going to help so rest is all I can do. I had a good night last night snd thinking about having a fat breakfast. :)"
You can't keep LCO down long - we are on the road to recovery and baby (Lizzie is due in December!). We will announce dates for our winter clinic series soon. So stay in touch! We need you.
But most especially - THANK YOU for your support and kindness during this hard time. You remind us what real support, family and friendship is all about!
Keep it real!
