The answer is actually super simple-I don't like lying to people. Especially not about large, potentially dangerous animals. That could kill you. That doesn't help the horse or you. And I despise not providing the proper care an animal needs. Look, I'm not saying YOU should should quit your volunteering gig. Some are really great. And … Continue reading Why I Stopped Volunteering
Well 1 year and a few days. But that's how I blog y'all. And boy howdy what a year it's been. We have a talking orange in the white house (Shouldn't say that because I have respect for SU's Otto the Orange and calling Trump a talking orange is degrading to Otto). I've changed jobs. … Continue reading 1 Year
I'm no fan of the current administration (Not hard to tell if you follow me on any kind of social media), and because of that I do my best to follow exactly what's going on in DC as. Imagine my surprise when I learned that some new equine regulations were going on. The House Appropriations … Continue reading On the Hill Today
Alright, end of June here we come. Lots of pony stuff happening For starters, I threw my poor boyfriend on Eddy and gave him a lesson. He was...surprisingly good. Nice seat, working on the hands. Eddy was also great and very responsive despite having someone sitting on him who had no idea what they were … Continue reading June Updates
Alright I'm a few weeks behind. Again. But Eddy got to get back into work at the end of April! Haven't gotten to do much since because of rain (Thanks climate change) but we are working. Doing some ground work for now. I'd write more but I'm exhausted. Here's some pictures.
The other day I brought the mail in, and for once there was something for me! Eddy's vet check form. Since this is my first year owning him I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. Sure, I'd volunteered. Hell I even served on the board. But I had never actually READ the vet check letter … Continue reading Vet Checks
Lives at the rescue I got him from. His name is Hucklebuck. I'm seeing a family resemblance going on-brown/bay and no white markings. And Hucklebuck has a full brother named Look Sharp Jack. That's all I got. Sorry, it's been wicked busy around here.
Spring is fucking gross. I just had a mud/shit tumble today. The entire farm is pretty much under 3 inches of water and mud. Manure is getting mixed into it. There's nothing we can really do-the farm is positioned just so in the hillside that we get all the runoff. And it keeps raining to … Continue reading Spring has Sprung
Some updates before I bitch about the weather. Eddy got his teeth floated earlier this year and was excellent of course. I have to admit I was concerned; I hadn't seen how he did for a dentist before. I know how he is for the vet (Excellent) so I shouldn't have worried but just in … Continue reading March: In And Staying Like a Lion
It's shedding on me. And it's freezing and thawing. Please can it be spring?
