T-3 Days

Hey bloggers! 
I know it's been for-ev-errr since I last posted! I apologize, but believe me if I had posted you'd be more bored than since I haven't ;). 
We've been doing nothing out of the ordinary. Lets see how many blog posts I can say that in ;). 

Our trail has dried up some, so we've been trail riding more, which Daisy absolutely loves. 

I leave for Canada, for my Trimmer 1 & 2 course, this coming Sunday! WHAAAAT?! I know. I'm a little shocked myself ;).  I'm excited, but also a little anxious about leaving home, and Daisy, behind. I've arranged for someone to ride Daisy 3 times a week for the two weeks I'm gone (and I'm crossing my fingers that she behaves for her new mount as well as she does for me!). She'll be boarding over at Jenny's farm, where we are in winter. This week, I'm pulling strings and getting things together so that I can leave her and the farm behind with a good peace of mind. 

One thing I'd like to mention: Boy is my pony the bomb! We've had SO much road construction lately, but those HUGE pieces of equipment don't bother her! WHOOT! I love feeling safe on this mare. 

That's all I have to say. Perhaps if I have a free moment next week I'll share some interesting hoof-related tid bits! If anyone is interested in details, they can check out , which is where I'm headed.

Nothin' much, just chillin'. 
Shameless Muckboot Company Plug: 
Everything that you've heard about Muckboots being awesome... Well, I'm here to confirm those rumors. They really are super. 
Last weekend I went to a combined test with my friend Lydia (check out her blog here). It was fun to be around eventing horses and eventing talk for a day. 

I spent a couple minutes with this adorable horse, Oslo. His coloring reminded me of a McDonald's Oreo Flurry.

And some time with pony clubbers. . . (the girls besides me are both named Lydia ;) ) 
After which Lydia  (in pink above) took me to her farm to properly introduce me to her new mare, Rica. She's lovely! 

This week hasn't included much for Daisy and I. She did get her rabies vaccination on Wednesday, and her three-way spring shot today. She continues to be lazy and bored of our riding locations.  This is frustrating and sad, and I don't know what to do about it. . .

I'm a slacker.
Mostly, there is nothing of note to say. I'm still riding Daisy allthetimeee. As usual. She's reaching that  point where her usual cheery attitude is fading away because she's sick and tired of riding the same roads all the time. I can't blame her. 

The vet is coming out next Wednesday to give her her rabies shot. 

Daisy loves cookies. 
 . . . and being ridden Western.
As much as I enjoy and appreciate the art of English riding, the fact of the matter is that I grew up taking western lessons for 8 years before I spent any serious amount of time in an english saddle. Western is just my 'thing'. I enjoy it as much as she does. 

And that's what it's all about. Enjoyment. 

The horse. Here is nobility without conceit, friendship without envy, beauty without vanity. A willing servant, yet never a slave. |Ronald Duncan|
