I took Friday off from work last week. Originally, I was going to take a half day because I had Yankee tickets for the evening game (Star Wars Night!!!). But then I was asked to braid a horse in the morning, and I decided to just take the whole day. Who wants to get up extra early to braid before work, suffer through a half day, get done later than you were supposed to, and then rush around getting the horses and dogs set up for the pet sitters? Not me! Plus, by skipping work, I had time to ride Badger before leaving for NY.
So, I started braiding around 8:
The horse I had to braid Saturday morning was a bit of a nudge, so he took a little longer than I wanted. And it really wasn't my best work. Hard to braid a moving target. But I got him done, and was only a little late to ride Badger.
Had another nice, light hack on Badger, followed by riding Rio and Jampy at home. Light hacks for everyone, cause I was barely awake.
My town's fair is really tiny, but I managed to have a great time with my mom. I ate ALL the things, cause that's what fairs are for. And then I found my new horse and proceeded to spend a lot of money to win him.
Everyone, I'd like you to meet Corny:
Also at the fair was an artist making things out of glass. He made figurines and necklaces. I was going to buy a pretty pink heart necklace (they were all $10, so inexpensive!) but then I realized you could make requests. I asked for a green horse (obviously) and then added a horse shoe to my order. You guys, these pendants are gorgeous! And $10?! The horse is incredible.
After stuffing my face with fried oreos, it was time to head home and crash. My poor body was pretty happy to not move even an inch for a solid 7 hours (finally).
Sunday was pretty quiet. I rode all three horses. Jampy had a little school. I was excited to watch the video because he really finished up great. I felt like his last few jumps he really used himself. Unfortunately, my phone stopped recording after five minutes. Boo. So this is the best I could get:
This week has been really busy at work, and I'm still trying to catch up on sleep. I gave the horses Monday off, so after yoga, I stopped for groceries and just relaxed a bit. Tuesday was rainy, so I flatted Jamp, but gave Rio a second day off. Tonight everyone flatted again. Hopefully Jampy will jump a little tomorrow if it doesn't rain.
Also, I have to fangirl a bit here... Tucker Tweed shared one of my photos on Instagram!
Well, that's what's up this Wednesday! What's up with you? Did you get lots of sleep this weekend? If you did, can you tell me all about it? I really miss sleeping.
