It’s been a while since I participated in a blog hop, but in an everlasting search for simplicity this summer I felt like Viva Carlos’ topic this week was very appropriate:
Other than money, what would make your horse life simpler?
My completely realistic answer is that I wish my barn was closer to either where I lived or worked. It’s a hike from either location unfortunately, and sometimes the 40 minute drive takes more motivation than it should for me to get out there. I’m not going to move Simon though, he’s happy and doing well where he is. Just a first world problem gripe!
In the fantasy world where all of Lauren’s problems are fixed, I wish my horse would just be sound all of the time. We’re still dabbling in an occasional NQR land (in my opinion) and it weighs on my mind. He’s not lame, but I don’t believe he’s the best he can be. I’ve experienced it long enough that I’m formulating an action plan to be updated at a later time, but life sure would be simpler if his hocks weren’t fugly and his stifles weren’t special!
Really though, I can’t complain much. I have a gentle, kind horse that I love. I’m happy with my barn and trainer, and I can support some level of this crazy horse world financially with the help of my job and my husband… what more can I ask for?
