Thanksgiving day they do mucking and mamosas in the morning at the boarding barn. I got there a little late, so I missed the mamosas, but I did clean my horses' stalls! (Such a good boarder I am!) Unfortunately, being the world's slowest stall cleaner (seriously, I've earned that title annually) I used up all my barn time doing that and didn't have time left to ride. Oops. Maybe I should have gotten up a little earlier... Anyway, it was great to get to see them on a holiday still. That is one really nice feature, we aren't forbidden to see our fur kids on holidays. (I always hated that boarding in other places.)
|Always something in his mouth. Always.|
After dinner I got to play My Little Ponies with the nieces.
|Those Equestria dolls though? Super creepy.|
Saturday I flatted the horses again, but this time had plenty of time to spare. Everyone has been really good, except maybe Pammon who keeps biting holes in my outter wear on our walks. I did finally realize though, that he is 100% Buddy the Elf.
Hear me out. Everything makes him happy and all he wants to do is give hugs.Not to mention his affinity for sweets.
Anyway, I spent the rest of Saturday working on Mt Laundry and cleaning out closets. This would be a common theme for any free time the rest of the weekend.
Sunday I got to have a lesson on Eros, and you guys! He was so perfect.
Well. Mostly perfect. He was super lazy on the flat, which I found surprising. He had a really easy week. Step mom rode him Tuesday/Wednesday, he had Thursday off, and Sunday was the first time he even jumped all week. But I'm not one to complain about quiet horses. Much my preference honestly. But laziness on the flat aside, he was absolutely perfect over fences. I even have a video of our last little course! We have lots to work on still, but I'm so happy with where we are finally.
After horsing I picked up a bunch of chinese food to eat for the next several meals. Chinese food is the perfect comfort food when we're having a snow storm. I ate some of it with these guys before tackling Mt Laundry again.
|I love my pony 4 a ponies. I have a Bud, Jampy (thanks to you all!), and Rio. <3|
The horses had Monday off, and then there was an accident at the barn earlier in the day Tuesday. It's not my business to share, and it was just a freak thing. No humans were injured, but there was a loss. They asked that we respect the owner's privacy and closed the barn for the day while they did what needed doing. So my tall kids had an extra day of vacation, and I will hug them extra tightly this evening, that's for certain.
And, good news on the truck! Somehow my oil filter got a hole in it. They aren't sure how that could or would happen, but it did. Thankfully, the fix is an oil and filter change which I was due for anyway, so it was cheap and not actually a big deal. Even though it seemed like one! So yay for some good news! I pick him up at lunch time today.
Did you all have a good week? Those that celebrated Thanksgiving, did you have a nice one? Anything fun happening? Tell me about your week in the comments!
