I didn't get to photograph Rio's outfit because my mom called while I was tacking him up. Mom calls last forever generally, so by the time I got off the phone with her, he was already untacked, bathed, and put away. I did steal some stock photos of his accessories though! We'll start with Jampy.
And here are Rio's accessories:
Ok, on to today's work outfit!
Cardigan: Haley and the Hound
Shoes: Lucky Brand:
That's what I'm wearing today! What do you have on? How's the weather in your area? Any favorites from today?

I'm still relegated to riding on the front half of the ring since the back is still holey and under construction. It's been great for working with Jamp because he's been cheating a lot and I didn't realize it until I had a smaller area to work him on. It's hard to tell though, if he's having a hard time keeping himself together, or if he's just so tense that it's not working. I'm thinking it's the second one, just because I know him pretty well.
Rio on the other hand is afraid of very little, and he insists on exploring all the stuff in the ring, regardless of which end it's at.
They had their fall shots yesterday so it's been an easy couple of days. Hopefully this weekend they'll be feeling good AND we'll be able to use the entire ring! Big things on the horizon!
The painters finished working on my house Monday. Isn't it amazing what a new coat of paint will do? The place looks so much better! And they even touched up my historical sign:
That's what's up this Wednesday! I shall leave you with this amazing sunset from last week:

I've been a little stressed out with all the projects getting done on my property. I'm just finishing up having all the buildings painted plus the fencing project is about halfway done at this point. I'm a little like Jamp (shocking revelation, I know!) in that I much prefer routine. Having no ring and trying to help Jamp cope with all that has been pretty stressful. Rio handles it fine emotionally, but the limited turnout is starting to take it's toll on his legs. He's definitely started to stock up more than normal, and I know (or at least I think I know...) that it's just because he's not getting to move around enough. Hopefully just another couple of days though!
Anyway, here's where I got dramatic. Last night when I was rinsing Jamp off after our ride, I grabbed the broom from the corner of the wash stall:
So yeah. I saw that and immediately though this is why I can't have nice things. Followed up by holy shit, my barn is going to be condemned! It's falling down! The whole place is gonna rot! (No drama here.) Then of course, I was all, maybe I should just give up now. I have a young horse that I have done nothing with, and two old ones. Maybe I just find a place to board the old ones (you know, since clearly this place will be condemned) and enjoy them till they cross the bridge, sell the young one, and go take up competitive eating.
As you can see, I was being completely rational about this little problem. Fortunately, that lasted only until I finished bathing Jampy. By the time I got on Rio I was mentally drafting my email to my dad (who's away on business of course) to figure out who can remedy this situation. Hopefully I'll hear back from him soon so I can start making calls and get this resolved.
What about you? Are you completely rational all the time? Or completely irrational? Do you get overwhelmed when your routine is interrupted? Or am I the only crazy one on these here interwebs? (LOL! I KNOW that can't be true!)

Boy, Thursday's Threads is really short when I wear a dress, isn't it?! Ha! Fear not, I have a riding outfit to share, despite that fact that some yahoo lighting off fireworks canceled my rides last night (only AFTER I was already on of course. Sheesh.) I guess I got all dressed up to hand walk them both. Always better overdressed than under though I say.
Helmet: One K
Shirt: Adult Ammy Strong
Belt: Noble Outfitters
Boots: Tuffrider Regal
Socks: 5 Below
That's it for Thursday's Threads today! Have any favorites from today? How's the weather where you are?

In other news, I nearly blew this little guy away with the blower. Once I realized he was clinging to the floor in the wind, obviously I stopped and let him hop up on my hand. Poor thing was missing a leg and STILL managed to not get blown away.
Needless to say, they're gone now. No regrets. I guess that's it from here for What's Up Wednesday. Hopefully by next Wednesday the fence will be what's up!
What's up with you guys? Do anything fun this weekend?
