Shawn had a photography student come by and ask about using our horses for models and of course Shawn said yes. WHO doesn’t say yes to free photos of our horses?
Shawn sent them to me and told me Shelby would come back to do photos if we wanted (and of course I would pay her this time!) and I think before we move I will do that. She did a great job considering my horse was disgusting dirty and his mane was a wild nest of mess. HA. (In fact I was so grossed out by my horse’s mane I went to the barn and started pulling it. It looks better not great but less despicable).
We had a bonfire at our barn Saturday night which was great fun. A bunch of people were there and I stayed longer than I thought I would (maybe cause it was so darn warm finally). Saturday it was 88 at one point, by Sunday it was 40. This weather!
But I got to the barn early before the bonfire and was going to ride but Remus was sweating in his stall. SO he got shedded out and his mane pulled and tail brushed out and given lots of carrots. He was very happy with this. (Carrots buy his soul).
He may be a tad bit skinny now. I think I can see his hips a bit. Will have to take better photos so you guys can weigh in (HA Solid pun, get it??). The grass is coming in so I doubt he will be skinny for long and he looks fine but he always comes out of winter showing his age a bit (Not that he is old but he turns 15 in 4 days! WOW).
His dapples are coming out tho the long white hairs aren’t yet. Love the SleekEZ though! Greatest shedding tool ever. Thanks for being my advisor for all things I buy Amanda from cheap to expensive. She never steers me wrong!
I thought the photos she took are pretty good. Remus can be expressive when he wants to!
Meanwhile Mark made it to Memphis on Saturday. He went to look at a few houses Sunday with the realtor including a second showing of the Sunday house (update the other two houses were crap but our realtor did like the house from last Sunday. She is checking on a few things for us before we move any farther). After one night in his extended stay, he is ready to make an offer on something, anything. (I told him so!). Saturday night in an extended stay must mean PARTY TIME. He said it was loud all through the night! (He found out later there was a prom celebration going on there, the clerk at the desk comped Mark a free night because of it!). Hopefully Sunday night was quieter for him. He starts his new job this morning (gulp). That is always scary to me. But knowing Mark and his quiet British ways, he will go in just like David Brent (kidding)! HA Good luck Mark, have a fantastic first day. I hope it all goes spectacularly! 🙂
Let’s get this week going so the weekend gets here faster. I have CC Schooling with Sally on Tuesday if the weather holds out (It’s supposed to be a HIGH OF 49 Tuesday and it poured its ass off all night Sunday night so who knows if it will be on or not. PLUS I woke up to a thunderstorm Monday am? GO home weather you must be drunk.) I expect a lot of fresh horses that day if it does go on. BRGHHH!
Then Blogger Trail Ride 2018 on Saturday! HA. Fun times await!! Come on week, let’s get rolling…(Though I do feel a bit like Bugs this morning!)
