Eddie's mom sent me a short clip of us cantering the other day, but it was sideways. I grabbed a couple screen shots though.
Ok, now we can go back and talk about all the fun and games that is a holiday weekend. Friday was surprisingly busy at work, and then I spent the evening with the tall kids.

|Clearly, I've found my happy place.|
Oh we found Waldo while we were there too!
Since Saturday was eaten up, Sunday was a day for getting things done. I got up at a reasonable hour and went to run a few errands. Then it was time to spoil the ponies (and do their laundry). We did mega groomies and had nice walks. Both boys are starting to put weight back on, so that's making me happy.
I was honestly really excited to have Monday off. I got up early to do the barn first thing. I'm the world's slowest stall cleaner so the boys had nice long turnouts. I figured I probably wouldn't walk them later because it was supposed to be sweltering hot out, so better to let them have outside time early while it was still bearable.
After lunch, the pugs and I hung by the pool for a bit.
And I guess you probably all want to know what I broke down and bought during the Labor Day sales. For the most part I was fairly well behaved. I did order a new pair of Regals from Riding Warehouse ($134! How could I not?). I was humming and hawing about possibly getting the rose gold One K, but they weren't actually allowed to discount it, and didn't have the size I needed in stock. So I passed.... But then (you knew that was coming didn't you?) I was on the Big Dee's site and they had the wide brim one marked down to $232. I've always been really against the wide brim helmets. I just think they look weird. But I'm also a sheep and everyone loves them. So I thought I'd give it a try. Plus they had it in stock! It arrived yesterday (so fast!).
So that's what's up this Wednesday! This little blog is finally getting horsey again! So glad you all stuck around while I floundered through not riding regularly.
How was your long weekend? Do anything fun? Go to a show? Tell me all about it in the comments!
