I finally made the commitment!

I leased a horse!
I've been hmming and hawing over it all winter and I finally decided to commit.
I work for a summer camp and my boss has been offering for me to take one of the newer horses home with me for awhile now. I kept convincing myself I couldn't afford it. (Even though I definitely could have, I was just airing on the side of caution, I wasn't sure my savings account could handle an emergency vet bill!) ANYWAY, I met "Fanny" back in September and fell in love with her right away! She hasn't been doing much but munching on a round bale so she's a HEIFER. (Camp is an hour away, so I don't get to go out much.) We've starting a workout routine and diet and we're aiming for our first Mini-Trial in May.

She came to town on Friday and it's been a blast so far! It's a shame I waited so long, but three months is better than nothing!!

(Pictures are from September, will get more recent ones soon!)




Her massive head (Good thing it's got a cute face on it!)

She is super cute! Congrats! Is she purebred paint or crossed with something?

She's cute!! I love how her markings on her back are in the shape of a saddle, haha.

I had to go back and see. You're right! ... and it's in about the right place too. Wow, a horse that comes with directions on saddle placement.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

She's adorable! Congrats!

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

ahahahah!!! I hadn't noticed that either. I guess I lucked out on that one, huh?

FehrGround, she's registered as an "American Warmblood", we have a running joke around here that that means we don't know what she is!

It may say her cross on her papers, I'll have to take a look.
