Rosie's Broken Wing.

Our Rose is now the proud owner of the cutest cast on our block… thanks to the very kind and accommodating medical staff at Cincinnati Children's. 
Rosie is all about accessories, and really, a neon pink and green cast makes the ultimate first grade fashion statement.  
She broke her wrist following a heated discussion while riding her best pony pal Cocoa Puff. 
Cocoa Puff is a very sweet pony, but she is also strong and smart and has about 20 years on 6 year old Ro.
This gentle bestie friends photo was taken about a week before their argument…happily, they are back on good terms again.

After the promise of a cool cast, the second best thing about a broken wrist it that you get to have an arm X-ray. 
Rosie is fascinated by the bones in her arm and will share it with anyone who shows even a smidge of interest.
As she was in the casting room at Children's, she was asked if she was interested in rainbow glitter being added to her cast while it was still wet.
"Glitter, please!"
Rosie's personal motto is always say a very big "YES!" to glitter.  
My girl is now one week into a 4 week cast. 
She is doing very well and has self diagnosed her wrist as just fine, completely healed and not hurty anymore. 
"Feels just like my regular old arm... I'm ready for the cast to come off... I need to ride again before I forget how." 
Unfortunately, her docs don't quite agree… but a few more weeks of "taking it easy" and she will be back in full action again.
