I think the kids are settling in okay. I had a couple bumps in the road on Sunday with the staff, but these things happen when you're first moving in. First, when I went to take Pammon out, his wraps were off. I had told the assistant trainer he needs to be wrapped 24/7, but she's off on Sundays. And the Sunday staff is different than the rest of the week, so I'm guessing they just didn't get the memo. I'm sure no harm done as I was there early to put them back on. I can't imagine his leg can get much worse than it already is anyway. The other issue was that Shiny almost didn't get turned out Sunday. She hadn't been added to the turnout board yet, and since Sunday's people are different, no one was paying attention. I mentioned to the barn owner/head trainer and she said AT was redoing the board Tuesday morning. Then made a comment that it's different juggling 40 horses than two. And I made one back that I am aware being I used to manage a stable of 60. Eye roll. The care really is wonderful at this barn once you get into the routine. So I'm not too worked up about these things yet. But those comments drive me bananas. Don't be rude. It's my job as an owner to look out for my horse. It's her job as the one in charge to make sure things happen that are supposed to. But we all know we have a personality clash me and her, so I'm trying to be the bigger person. And my horses are only there for a few months. And the indoor is so lovely with great footing.
My other confession is that I really didn't use my new found free time very wisely the first day. I was all done with the horses by around 3:30. I was a little productive in that I got the trailer cleaned out and put away. I also put some laundry in and then ran out for a very late lunch (or maybe early dinner, whatever). But after that? I just hung out with the pugs and played around with some photo apps the rest of the day. Talk about lazy! The apps are fun though, I made some floating pony portraits:

Helmet: One K
Sweatshirt: American Eagle
Belt: Mane Jane
That's what I wore last night. Shiny wore a completely mismatched outfit last night, and would be MORTIFIED if she knew I was sharing with you guys...
Ok, back to outfit day. Here's what I have on at work today:
Sweater: Le Lis
website this weekend and snag it on sale!
Belt: Unkown brand
Jeans: Lucky Brand
And that's it for today! What do you think of the gummies?! What are you wearing today? Have you switched to the winter wardrobe, or still working with fall?

Except Fefe didn't get picked up last week. So alas, the horses are still home. I spent the weekend doing barn chores and riding horses though, so no complaints there really! Nothing better than a weekend of nothing but ponies!
New OFFICIAL move date is this Saturday. I have the trailer all hooked up, and most of their stuff is packed and ready to go! What we aren't using currently anyway.
|Still think all that navy feels weird.|
I think Shiny is going to be a bit of a handful when we first move. It's been a little trying to get any work done in my ring. She's not a spooky pony, but she doesn't seem that fond of riding under the lights now that the leaves are off the trees... And after seeing that coyote the other night. She's also gotten super suspicious of the neighbor's side of the ring. (Understandably.) Pammon will be too I'm sure, but he gets magic cookies for hand walking anyway. I'll give him one before we ship too. Just to keep him calm. Don't need any dramatics on that leg!

Anyway, this Tuesday I have some confessions. I've been missing this guy something fierce lately:
|pardon the screen shot, this time change has me feeling a little lazy...|
|Portrait mode is pretty fab on the new phone|
And I think we all know what happens when I have the sadz. Especially this time of year when sales are everywhere. I'm not easily enticed by your typical 20% or less sale. That's basically retail since stuff is marked up so much... But occasionally I'll fall prey to the 10% discount if it's something I've been planning to order anyway. (What can I say, sometimes the patience wears thin.) Such is the case over at Dreamers and Schemers. I had some digital artwork done for me by @artastride which you've all seen once or twice, and I've been wanting to get them on socks. So I went ahead and got a little crazy designing socks at Dreamers and Schemers and ordered a few pairs. These are just two of the images I was playing around with. Everyone that was around this past year on top and the current herd on the bottom. I also have individual images of each to play with. So it was fun.
Anyway, back to talking about discounts... When I see 30% or more I start to get interested. Especially on things that aren't usually marked down so significantly. Like, um... Celeris boots. They had a handful of 31% off discounts for Halloween. That's a pretty big discount on custom boots. So maybe I grabbed a couple pairs. I wasn't going to. I swear. I have so many boots. SO MANY BOOTS. But I want to retire my too short purple ones. And there was something crazy they have that I decided I NEED. And the two really won't work together... so yeah. Two pair of boots coming. I haven't officially ordered yet, just reserved my spots and paid my deposits.
So, to sum up... I'm confessing to feeling kinda sad about the past year of horsing and I'm also confessing to some irresponsible boot purchases. I have zero regrets about the socks though.
Anything you need to get off your back? Share your confessions in the comments!
