Itchin’

21050271391_296acb0ec6_c

I am itchin’ to ride my horse again. Tomorrow will be about a month since Simon’s leg blew up, and three weeks after the vet diagnosed him with a suspensory strain. Tomorrow I will hop back on for a mostly walking ride, and slowly leg him back up. He’s been rather enthusiastic in his limited turnout, with more playing & leaping than I’ve ever seen …

Juxtapositions

19223207809_a9e5cc67cb_c

I’ve always been fascinated by the juxtapositions I find in life. Right now, my reality is filled with them. They bring me humor, delight and a sense that the universe really does have a greater plan… even if that plan is super shitty at times. My mailbox is an almost constant state of juxtaposition. While I was never a big mail checker in the past, now …

Putting Our Heads Together – BT Tinkles

A lot of things are bringing me down, but one of them is my elderly Boston Terrier. First, a little snippet. Someone asked in the last post about BT, what BT stood for.

I’m trying very hard to keep up with my normal Monday – Friday blogging schedule, but this week is difficult. Partially there’s not much going on, partially I don’t want to blog about the things most on my mind and partially I just have no motivation for anything right now. I’m doing really well to get to work, take care of the world’s most high maintenance dogs …

Soundtrack of Your Life

Lots of blogging about non-horse topics lately. It’s not that I no longer love my horse, but more that he isn’t doing anything exciting. We’re just waiting for one more week of restricted turnout & rest before I hop back on and see how he feels. I don’t even need to ice/poultice/wrap right now, so I’ve been a bit of a slacker horse mom and …

Breaking News – Lauren Eats Vegetables

20879492891_6ec2a470d4_z

Today isn’t going to be earth shattering, emotional content, but I wanted to share some results of the GoFund Me that Tracy created and everyone so generously donated to. That way you can see some visual proof that I haven’t taken the money to run go buy shoes or something. Let’s be honest, the only one that gets new shoes in this family is Simon. Although …
