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.

Omg I just laughed so hard at “I horse. I horse things”.
He is above average at horsing things.
Holy cow look at Simon go! < 3
Exactly my thoughts!
Wow those kneeeeeeeeeees on Simon! Holy cow! Blogger friends are the best, and I’m so happy you’re getting your mojo back. I feel like I don’t know Roman nearly well enough yet!
Roman has been unfairly underrepresented on here. That will change soon I’m sure!
More Roman pictures!
Simon looks INCREDIBLE!! So, so happy he has found a person who will help him shine in the jumper ring! And Roman… how could you not love that sweet, kind, derptastic face?!
He is genuinely as sweet as he appears, even if he is derpy 😀
LOL @ “hunter donkey”
I feel you on the derp pictures…my girl is also much more attractive in real life, but what can I say, I look like an idiot in pictures too.
Mr Romanov is gorgeous and I’m sure will only get more so , look at the amazing job you did with Simon 🙂
Roman is cute! Holy Cow though Simon looks great with his new rider! What a champ at those high jumps. 🙂
Roman has such a kissable face!
The cutest of hunter donkeys 🙂
Drooling over Simon’s knees!! What a star!
I feel like I rarely get a good (accurate) photo of my two, so I feel you!
I knew a guy named Roman in college who was a fiery redhead and a bit of derp himself, though also an incredibly intelligent and lovely human. So Romans name suits him perfectly to me.
And SIMON!! Looks like the Nerd Horse has been going to school!
Nerd horse is super happy to have a capable rider who aspires to jump much bigger than his beloved mom. 🙂 He’s having a lot of fun right now!
I want to hear more about Roman- he’s so derpy and cute!!
Simon is looking AWESOME!
Simon, stop showing up your brother! He’s still learning.
Simon literally lives to show up his brother. He coliced the first week Roman was home to get attention. True story.
Aww, I love his roman nose! And Go Simon!
Roman has such an honest face, his feelings are so clear! Love the first close up. 🙂
Simon is looking fancy!
Yay! Finally some Roman pics! We’ve been waiting 🙂 Those brushes = Amazing. Also, Simon-pants looks happy and well, so yay for a great leasee for him!
Wow Simon holy moley!
Also – I 125% agree with seasonal depression in Texas in the summer, because I have gone through it. I go through it whenever I don’t get enough sun, and in the summer in Texas, we’re all hiding indoors – so it’s totally legit.
Those brushes! Those ponies! I just love all of this!
I love BOTH your ponies. They both look handsome (though I agree, some of Roman’s photos are a bit derpy…). I have some super derp photos of Rio, but he won’t let me post them. He’s afraid it will damage his supermodel reputation. But do expect to see some derp from Jampy on Wednesday!
Holy cow, Simon is flying!!
Ramon is still very handsome, even if he is not the best poser for pics!
Gah, Roman’s nose is just SO CUTE! I’m sure the rest of him will catch up to his adorable face in no time.
And Simon… damn, he’s da bomb
I think he is super cute! It’s so nice to have a horse friend to hang out with.
Aww glad to see SiPants is thriving 🙂
Such handsome boys! Can’t wait to see how Roman blossoms.
