What I have been doing is lots of grooming. LOTS of it. These two boys start shedding the second the days start getting longer. I actually love grooming my boys. They both really enjoy it, and it's a great way to spend time with them when they're not in work.

|His tail hasn't been this nice in a long while!|
|Fruits of my grooming labor. This is just Jampy's pile! Foot and broom for scale.|
|THIS tail though! Whoa.|
Since this week was super quiet, let's talk about some things I'm looking forward to in the next several weeks.
Despite my current break from shopping, I do have a few things I'm waiting on that I purchased back in November. I think they're all a few weeks away still, but here's what I'm getting antsy waiting for:
-My Pioneer boots:
|I mean... gold glitter!|
|These but in blue|
-I also mentioned this quite awhile back, but it's taken forever to ship, I ordered a different unicorn/rainbow hackamore for Rio from Evo Equine. I got the boys matching browbands from them too, so that should all be coming together any day now.

-And lastly, these I ordered in September, but there was some kind of shipping snafu so I'm still waiting... I got the boys custom bridles from FSS. They're not great quality, but they're decent. I don't want to spend a boatload of money on a bridle that's not for showing, but I do care that they're going to be safe and comfortable. And you know... that they're pretty. I was able to get both Rio and Jamp their own bridle and I spent under $300 total including shipping. So what did I get you ask?! I kept it fairly simple. I chose havana leather for the bridle itself. It's padded in hunter green, and has gold piping. I CANNOT wait to see them! The reins are havana with hunter green rubber, but I did get them separately.
I updated the about me section on here the other day. I realized I hadn't touched it since I started the blog, so it was definitely lacking some info and familiar faces. I'm thinking I may give the four leggeds each a page at some point too.
And that's really all that's going on here. Hopefully I'll have something more exciting to talk about next week!
How are things where you are? Have you had a thaw yet, or is everything still frozen? Did you order anything exciting during the holiday sales?
