Sunday I was up fairly early to ride the Unicorn one last time. He was perfect as he's always been. I hope we find another just like him! After unicorn time, it was Eddie time!
The original plan for Sunday was to take Eddie to a horse show. But Eddie's mom and I decided to change that plan when we realized the show we were going to was indoors. We aren't sure if Eddie's every even been in an indoor ring, and didn't think it fair to make him show in one for the possibly first time. Especially because that particular show has a pretty spooky indoor. Instead, we decided to bring him a dressage barn not too far away and ride him in their indoor.
I had planned to go grab a lobster roll at the lake after riding, but it was kind of a dreary day and they had closed early. Boo. But I had my horses to walk and groom, so it was probably for the best that I keep moving! It was kind of a long day, but since it was full of horses, I have no complaints!
Monday was a chilly day. Like stupid chilly. You already know. I complained about it yesterday. But the horses got their walks, and Rio got to have some grass. Unfortunately, Tuesday was a complete wash out. It rained steadily all day, but by evening it was like the sky had fallen. I don't have any idea where this storm came from, but it was a doozy! Not really windy or anything like that, but so much rain! My town got over 7 inches in one day. And I had the bright idea to go to grocery store in that! It was a real miracle my car started this morning after some of the standing water I had to drive through. I had a couple of inches of water in the basement and my chimney was leaking too!
|You'll have to excuse this creepy basement... That insulation keeps falling down and it regularly floods.|
|However, THIS doesn't normally happen!|
Normally on Wednesdays I ride Eddie after work but I didn't because of the forecast. I am planning to ride him Friday though. I wasn't sure I'd be able to walk the horses tonight after all that rain yesterday, but the ring wasn't too bad. We stayed on the front half and it was actually pretty dry.
And that's it! What's up with you this Wednesday? Get to any shows or lessons this weekend? Tell me all about it in the comments!
