Wow, last day of NaBloPoMo 2017. Thanks Clover Ledge Farm for pushing me to do it. It was tough writing every day but with the help of the topics it was easier than I thought it would be. Am I going to still write every day? PROBABLY NOT, girlfriend needs a rest. But I am … Continue reading Day 30–Your Future With Horses
I am not trendy. By a longshot. As any of you that have met me or follow me online can see! I don't follow trends and I mostly just buy stuff Amanda tells me to buy. Because I am a puppet. But beside that I just don't care that much. I want comfy clothes, non-tacky … Continue reading Day 29–A Style/Trend in Tack/Riding Apparel That You Don’t Like (Or Not)
