So this week/weekend was pretty tame on the horse front. Eros is a perfect gentleman for his hand walking and Shiny is coming along under saddle. We've added canter back in, and I'm asking her toward the end of every ride to come round and work the booty. It's hard for her, and she really can't hold it long, but it's a start! Clearly, she's very worn out from all the hard work...
Saturday she pulled a Shiny on me though... We are supposed to pick feet just inside the barn when leaving the indoor. So I picked the front ones, and when I went to do the back, she got startled by the farrier hammering on a shoe nearby. I tried to grab the reins, but missed, and she trotted herself right down the aisle and outside. Of course it was a randomly beautiful warm day, so the doors were all open. Of course! Lol. Fortunately, she just trotted herself out to the paddocks and visited with her pony friend Misty who was outside. Such a silly pony. This is the THIRD TIME she's gotten loose at the boarding barn. First time from me though. So naughty.
Sunday I needed to pull her mane. It was halfway down her neck and she was looking VERY feral. Apparently though, she's a total turd about it. I wound up having to twitch her and still was only able to shorten it with scissors. Good thing she's not showing any time soon...
Nothing new on the Pammon front. Vet comes Friday to ultrasound Eros, so I'll probably get an update then.
We've already covered everything going on with the puggers yesterday, so that's where we are with them. Artie still isn't into eating his kibble, so I guess I'll have to get more food for him. Kids.
I did manage fill all the time this weekend though, despite being busy with vet visits and Equine rehab. Saturday evening I went to a minor league hockey game which was super fun.
I've also been taking steps to organize my hoarder hovel, and one of those steps is actually acquiring furniture in which to hide my crap. Thus, both Saturday morning and Sunday morning I put some parts together.
I have one more piece to put together for that room (it's a pantry room sort of, the fridge is in there... my house is old and weird), and then it should be all neat and organized! One down... all the rest to go. Baby steps my friends. It will be SO nice once everything is organized though. Hope it lasts! ha.
And that's about it from here. If you guys don't hear from me tomorrow it's because my job drove me to day drinking.

|Me at work.|
Since my animals really like to pile it on thick, and not to be outdone by Pia of course, Artie started coughing on Thursday night and coughed so hard he PASSED OUT! Apparently, dogs can do this, and it's not all that out of the ordinary... But I've never seen a dog just fucking pass out. It's horrifying if you've never seen it. Pretty much exactly the same visual as when a horse gets put down standing. HORRIFYING! I thought he died. Right in front of me. Thankfully he did not die, so I rushed him up to the 24 hour vet hospital near me.
So yeah... Last night I binge ate Italian cookies and feel very little remorse. And that's my confession for today.

|Yeah, I'm closing my eyes to all of this too Eros.|
In the meantime, we need to hopefully get him re-shod (he's due anyway), ice, wrap, and hand walk. I'm legit so over nursing and hand walking horses. SO OVER IT! Not to say I'm not doing it. Of course I am! And I really do enjoy the extra time just hanging with my horses. But like... I also really enjoy riding, lessoning, and showing... Just throwing that out there...
Fortunately, Shiny is back in light work. We even added in some canter over the weekend. So now we just have to build up her fitness slowly. She's also pretty over due for a trim, so hopefully the farrier comes out sooner than later. She's been a good girl though and seems to be sound. Hard to really tell because she's not all that interested in working and gives me the littlest western pleasure jog when I ask for trot... But it seems to be even at least. Once she's a little stronger and has some fitness we're going to need address the whole leg means go thing. Plenty of time for that though.
So that's really all we're up to here. Eros is walking and icing, Shiny is jogging with a little canter.
|"Mom, this boot is really cold." -Eros probably|
And that's about it from here. How are things with you guys? Horses sound? Do anything fun with them this week? Is your house in order, or is there stuff all over yours too?

|more pink and purple|
|Moooo cow and more green|
I got really excited yesterday when they posted some ridiculous hologram spur straps and was like YES! (Not for full boots, I'm not quite that tacky, just the accents!) But alas. That was a special order they had done and they can't get more of that leather. Boo. So I'm stuck. What I probably should do is just get plain black boots for my next show pair. But my Parlantis are still fine for showing. And let's be real, the chances of me showing this year are once again quite slim. So fun boots would make me much happier I think.
So what would you do if you were me? Any color(s) you think I'm missing? I'm not a red/burgundy/orange person so not those please.
