It was a long day. A very long day. But it was fun and the weather was really awesome. Saturday AM was gorgeous aka 70s and sunny with a lovely breeze. By afternoon by the time we jumped, it was 80s but felt hotter. Great. Why can't we jump in the morning?Asking for a friend. … Continue reading Combined Training Event: Dressage and Then We Wait for Jumping….
What a freaking surreal week this has been. Peeves is not doing great so he has been at the vets. He is back home but honestly I think it may be time. He just looks miserable and has lost so much weight. I wanted to get him home to see if he perked up a … Continue reading No Saddle or Trailer Still…But Now I Have Kittens?
Who would have thunk knowing exactly what saddle I want I can't find one (well I can but I prefer to not pay over 4k for it). I tried a Toulouse yesterday and despised it (I KNEW I WOULD, I was trying to be open minded). It gave me a chair seat and my jumping … Continue reading Saddle Oh Saddle Where Art Thou?
As most of you know I sold my trailer right at the beginning of the pandemic shut down/crazy world shit. A guy pulled up to look at it and offered me cash on the spot. I think this was March 16th as we were not shaking hands even then and we stood our distance. They … Continue reading Pandemic Purging….At Its Finest
Remus and I had another lesson on Friday. Unfortunately I had to change my slot to later in the day due to work so the cool wind blowing at 10 am was hella gone by 1 pm. Sigh. It was hot. It was muggy. There was a breeze still blowing otherwise it would have been … Continue reading Remus Lesson (With Media!): You Fail Some, You Win Some….
Remus is just doing so fantastic at Trinity. He is still shedding out some for some reason and was really muddy the other day but I am so pleased with his general happiness and calmness and the way he looks and his fitness stage. We had a great lesson on Saturday and I even had … Continue reading Remus Lesson Recap
Remus is doing fine. I have ridden 3 weeks in a row now and even went out the other day to just hack him. Not that we did much. The flies were horrid and it was hot. He was not enthused. Also my fly spray had R-U-N-N-O-F-T the last time I was there. Sigh. (TM … Continue reading Remus Update (With a Side of Dogs and Donkeys!)
We will have been in this house on this farm two years........on June 15th (I think I need to look haha). Since then we mostly have walked dogs on leashes as we weren't sure what we wanted to do fence wise. We didn't want to fence in the whole area due to still wanting to … Continue reading New (Dog) Fence (Almost 2 Years Later)
So I am going off on a tangent now. No real horsey updates except Remus and donkeys are all doing fine (separated from each other by 20-30 miles as Remus prefers it) and nothing is going on here at home except for my dog fence is being finally put in as I type. (YAY!). So … Continue reading Friday Foray: Stuck at Home, What To Eat?
Some of you may have seen this on Facebook but others may not have. Fred is no longer with us. He had a downward spiral that started on Sunday morning and culminated with us saying goodbye to him on Monday. I am so sad. Ginger and Lola are fine though they are staying close to … Continue reading Farewell Fred…
