I don't have much pony news at the moment. I've been riding all three most days, but they're just plugging along. Nothing exciting to report really. I did put some of the jumps up a little for Jampy. But we haven't even hit the 3' mark yet.
Unfortunately, when I got there, trainer said he's about to lose his shoe and fake foot, so all he could do was walk. Wah. #firstworldproblem but honestly, I feel like I never get to ride this horse. I guess walking is better than nothing though. So we walked around while trainer gave a junior a lesson on Cara. Not gonna lie, I was feeling pretty jealous of the junior. After my stroll with the Badge, I headed home to ride the rest of the herd. Everyone was good (no seriously, even Romey!) and they got to have some snacks after we rode.

Cocktail hour was out in a field and the wedding party made their entrance via hay ride. Seriously! Hay Ride!
And once they'd climbed down, everyone else took turns taking a tour of the property. Whilst being serenaded of course:
They run a tight ship there and we were sent outside with sparklers to see the new couple off (and get out ourselves) right at 11. I was home by midnight which is perfect for this old lady.
I sat down to hang with the puggers for a bit when I heard a huge crash. Of course, my first thought was that something happened to Rio. Second thought was maybe Jamp was cast (he enjoys doing that). Thankfully, neither of those things were true. But it was yet another single car wreck at the end of the road. So I wander down there in my jammies to make sure the person was alive. He never hit the brakes at all, so he was pretty deep into the ditch. I couldn't pick my way in there in my jammies and boat shoes, but I called out to see if the person was ok. No answer. Ugh. So I called 911 and they sent help over. While I was waiting for them, the victim came to and told me not to call the cops. So I told him help was coming and kept a safe distance in case he got angry. Fortunately, he was too drunk to get mad. Probably the only reason he was ok. It was a pretty nasty wreck. (Don't drink and drive kids. And if you do, pay attention to roads ending.)
Sunday morning came extra early after all the late night excitement. But I was getting my turn to ride Cara (just on the flat though) so I wasn't going to be late for that! Badger did manage to pull that shoe off overnight, so he had the day off. Of course he did. Cara was great though! After riding her and snuggling with Badger, I went back to work the rest of the equine. Jampy had done something to his face, so I took the noseband off the bridle to avoid further rubbing.
Tuesday the boys were stuck with me doing stalls, so that meant extra turnout for them! I'm probably the world's slowest stall cleaner. No one would ever hire me. It was a gorgeous day though, and I think the boys enjoyed the extra sunshine. Even Jamp who hates the great outdoors. Once chores were finally done, I took a quick lunch break. Lobster roll at the lake of course! And then quick rides for all before dinner with the fam at Dad's house.

That's what's up this Wednesday! I'm hoping to jump Jampy a little tomorrow (sans noseband, so that should be something) but otherwise nothing terribly exciting coming up. What's up with you? Showing? Riding? Shopping? Share what you're up to in the comments!
