Al has been working hard this past week! We had to miss our first lesson of the week due to scheduling conflicts, but we popped over a few fences on our own instead. It's nice to practice on our own sometimes anyway.

hoisted himself over anyway. GOOD BOY!
In other bigger news, I spoke with my trainer friend that helped me sell Badger (he actually was purchased in house, so he's still in her barn!) and she's going to have a stall for Pammon in another week or so. So he'll be heading to her very soon and will hopefully find his person. Part of me is a little sad, because I'm not good at letting go, but it's so 100% the right thing for both of us. I can't afford to have four horses AND get to horse show. Plus, he deserves to have himself a kid or ammy that will spoil him rotten.
One of my bad traits though, is that when I know something is ending, I kind of just want to cut it off. And so it's felt a little like a chore riding him everyday. And I hate feeling like that because I love him. And I'm SO LUCKY to have him to ride. Seriously. I never want to take a horse for granted. And it makes me feel like a shit person feeling that way, like I'm not grateful. But I honestly think I'm just trying to distance myself to make it easier when he leaves. Ugh. Emotions are so dumb.
