Simon’s 2013 Christmas Wish List

Simon’s 2013 Christmas Wish List

Simon doesn’t usually write guest posts, but when he does… he’s begging for Christmas gifts. What Simonpants Wants, Needs, and Desperately Deserves for Christmas – 2013 Edition Update for the mass public – even though I didn’t know about treats until the summer of 2012, I have now had a full year of treat eating under my belt.  My palette is also refined enough to now enjoy carrots, so I recommend you mail them to Texas.  I live in the main barn…

The Winter Struggle Bus

Simon and I have a well established routine this time of year, and by well established… I mean this is what we did last year: work hard all year to horse show, go horse show, end on a high note, pretty much ignore Simon until after new years… and then start all over when he’s sound again.

Last year was actually the first time I’d ever dressed my horse…

Birthday Fun

Birthday Fun

Today is my birthday!  Being that I am a Christmas baby, usually we are traveling or Christmas shopping or doing something along those lines on my birthday.  This year we stayed in town for the holidays, so that meant I got to do whatever I wanted… which turned out being totally awesome. After birthday breakfast tacos, we headed to the Austin Zoo. This isn’t your average privately funded zoo – all the animals are rescues from roadside circuses, pets gone wrong,…

Simon’s Christmas Wish List

Simon’s Christmas Wish List

Taking a break from the 30 day challenge for a few seasonally related posts!  Plus tomorrow is my birthday and I’m hoping to spend some time at the barn taking pictures, hanging out with ponykins and giving him his Christmas present.  With that I present to you a guest post from Simon… What Simonpants Wants, Needs, and Desperately Deserves for Christmas I am a remarkably good horse, and deserve to be showered with treats and affection.  Before this past summer,…
