I might be getting a little blogging mojo back. Let’s hope this is the case, because like most things… blogging is connected to my overall mojo and happiness. I was talking to a friend at dinner last night when she said she thought that Texas gave people reverse seasonal affliction disorder. It’s so hot in the summer that we get depressed. Whether it’s weather related or a cluster of things, I’ve been operating lower than I hope to be for the past few weeks. As always I press on and hope it passes. At least today, things are better.
Anyway enough of that and onto the main event – y’all are way overdue for Roman pictures. I am still hoping to get some “real” pictures of him to announce his arrival (late) and get a basis for before & after, however scheduling and my motivation level (see previous paragraph) has kind of stopped that from happening. What I do have is a series of pictures that shows off my hunter donkey.
His hashtag on instagram may be #romanovponykins, but these are a lot more like Romanov Derpykins. I can see why two owners before called this horse “Larry”.
Because I am vain and I want all of my animals to look like stunning beauties all the time, these pictures kill me a little inside. You’ll have to take my word for it that my future hunter is somewhat attractive in real life… really… I promise.
I’m not worried about his lack of pristine hunter beauty at the moment. Partially because I got the most amazing gift in the mail this week…
Also, about four years ago I had another skinny and non-photogenic nerd horse on my hands. He was gangly, under muscled and couldn’t trot a circle without motorcycling. Now look at him 😀
Simon is the world’s most beautiful horse in my eyes and makes my heart swell every day. I have no doubt I’ll feel similarly about Romanov Derpykins with more time.
