Hope Rose continues to improve, Vicki. Poor girl.
Mulefeather, that clinic sounds like a blast! Glad you had fun.
Maple, eep about the back! Pain of any kind is never any fun.
Aires' birthday was yesterday. Wasn't able to get out to the barn for his actual birthday, but went out today and spent almost an hour just grooming him. He's starting to fill out and look like an actual horse! Can't believe he's 5 already. He got a package of tropical Skittles (his absolute favorite) as a treat for his birthday.
The farrier has finally returned calls and said he's coming out on Wednesday to do the BO's horses and Aires. So after an almost three month wait, poor guy is finally getting done.
Apparently some woman at the barn was talking crap about me yesterday where a friend if mine could hear. She was saying that I'm never out at the barn and that I don't deserve Aires and "just look at the state of his feet." My friend promptly told her to mind her own business, that she doesn't know me or my situation, and that I've been waiting over two months for the farrier to come do my horse's feet. People seriously irritate me sometimes.
On a happier note, my bit shipped on Monday and I went to the tack shop on Tuesday and they're going to custom-make me a split-ear headstall for $30 that will match my saddle and reins. Woo!
