Sorry for no picture updates or anything, I am unbelievably stressed and overloaded right now with work, family trouble, dual credit college classes, senior year, and the two horses to care for- and I've really only had time to go feed the girls and come home to do more school or head to work, and when I do that its usually either dawn and not light enough yet for pictures, or the sun is already setting and its too dark. It stinks, but its what I have to do.
Heres a quick one of her in her pen while I was feeding Sour, just chilling out under the shade trees. It shows how nicely she is keeping/putting on condition though. She's SUPER glossy (you can't really tell in the shade) and soft, and her ribs are still covered unless she's bending or stretching out when walking. I think I like rice bran!
Actually, she has a bit of a hay belly xD
Then just for the heck of it, a picture of some flowers that I pressed last week. Not my best batch, but I think they're pretty.
This was SO SO sweet. There is a girl who I have sort of 'taken under my wing' in the past few months who is often bullied at her school for no apparent reason, and who adores horses. I've been letting her come out with me to mess around with Kenzie and Sour, and in return she drew me an AMAZING picture of Kenzie! The reference picture she used is when Kenzie was still looking skinny, but doesn't it look just like her- funky croup, upside down neck, floppy ear and all?! SO CUTE. This girl is only 13. I'm impressed!
And then I got a package from a member who has been conversing with me in the past few months about Kenzie and other lovely life things; and in it was a book on training young horses from weanling to riding age, and a calligraphy set! O_O I am so excited to try using it. I've never done calligraphy before but I love anything to do with ink and art. This looks like the perfect stress reliever. What a thoughtful thing to give me. I really am blessed to have you all.
