Recapping 2019

I had many great horsey experiences in 2019!  I am really pleased with how the year went overall; nothing is ever perfect, but both horses are sound, happy, and healthy, which is really what matters to me.

Some of my 2019 goals were met easily or with lots of hard work, and a few of them were utter fails haha.  C'est la vie! Let's recap!

Happy, health, sound
Both mares are doing well in this regard!  Dreamy will be 29 this year, and while she definitely shows signs of her age at times, she overall looks and acts much younger than she really is!  Ellie has really matured this year, filling out as well as mentally becoming more comfortable in her own skin.  As she will be eight this year, I feel like we have moved through the baby phase.

Continue lessons with Beth and Babette
This goal was met and then some!  I took almost weekly dressage lessons with Beth and monthly jump lessons with Babette. Thanks to the Morgan Dressage Association scholarship, I was also able to attend two clini…

A Day in the Life.....

"Uggggggggg" I say as I roll out of bed. I am NOT a morning person, especially on a Monday morning.

Frosty whiskers and throaty nickers greet me as I began morning chores. It is not that cold at 17 degrees at 6:20 AM! :D

Love. My son is the best kid on the planet. :)

Seriously? Did I really read that correctly? Sometimes I am still amazed at how ridiculously idiotic people can be. Good gravy. Talk about crazy. It is quite funny to watch people destroy "friendships" only to find they have no friends! And then try to grasp for the ones they previously treated badly! The more I get to know horse people, the more I like my HORSE(S)! ROFL! Thankfully the drama has not reached me. PHEW!

YAY! Only four more days to teach until vacation! Life is good.

Oh, my aching back. Hauling water from the house to the barn is no fun.

More love. Slobbery kisses, horse cookies, neck scratches. Saying goodnight to the ponies is one of my favorite times of the day!

Resist! You. Can. Do. It! Why, oh why, does SLT and Dover have to send me sale catalogs!? LOL! I do NOT need another saddle pad, I do NOT need another saddle pad........LOL!

You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. My long suffering husband is out in the dark cold night fixing the barn's outside spigot as I type. There is a small metal thingy inside the handle that likes to break in the winter. And of course you cannot get that specific piece in the "spigot repair kit" at the hardware. Using his truck's headlights, he is fixing the spigot. :) If that's not love, I don't know what is. <3
