Thank you :)

Just got back from four hour trail ride! We trailered to one of the lakes near by and rode all 9 miles around it. My horse is such a trooper, he actually was ready to go the whole time! Halfway around the lake we came up to a beach and rode up to my thigh deep in it. SO MUCH FUN. One of my life goals is to be able to swim with my horse- and we came SOSOSO close.

I'm making plans for another time were we'll maybe take more people from the barn too. Having a truck makes this all so much easier :)

After such a nice weekend, I'm going to be sad to go to work tomorrow!

Have a happy Monday everyone!

Sooo not much exciting has happened so I haven't updated. Thanks to work and this weather my motivation is 0 (today I had to be AT work by 5 AM, meaning had to wake up at 3:50, when I got home at 3 PM I sat down and woke up two hours later lol!)

BUT I did get an amazing opportunity to take my horse swimming at the local lake! It was SO fun! My horse isn't too bad of a swimmer, very smooth. The first time we went in it was off the horse trail on a mini-beach. The horses loved it and went to swimming depth easy! BUT there were lots of branches there they kept getting tangled in (and we didn't have a camera) so we went to the next spot which was by a boat ramp. Horses didn't care much about the boat, though my horse was all cooled off and was done with the swimming part so no swimming pictures :(

It was SO cool though, I had an amazing moment while we were out swimming! My dog was swimming beside us and got tired, so she climbed on his butt and we all swam around together :)

We're going again this week and I'm so excited!! I love having a horse that is always up for something new :)

Sorry for all the photos... I was very excited about it all :)

Going into the water

So many changes I can't believe it! School is starting in less than a month, meaning I have SOOO much stuff to do/pack before then! It seems like it came so suddenly!

Despite the accident, Reily and I have been having a great summer :) Going almost every week to a show/the lake to go swimming. I've been working a LOTwhich is a bummer, but heh gotta get the money some how.

County fair is in a week which both my horse and dog will be entered in (not by me unfortunately) but I'm very excited to assist and help out with :)

Reily and I have grown so much together since/because of this incident it's incredible. I love him so much and am so glad I get to bring him to school with me!!

There's a lot more stuff going on but just thought I'd share that little ramble :) Summer has been going great.

Haters going to hate!

Don't worry when I got my one eyed pony I was told that they couldnt use her for lessons because of her eye. It sorta shocked me because who cares right? Well apparently the barn didn't want kids being afraid of it or whatever the stupid reason was. :S

I love my one eyed pony and if I never took her god only knows where she woulda ended up once they sent her to the auction. (I can only imagine)

Good luck with him!

Awesome to hear from another one eye horse owner! Its amazing what animals are capable of. At work we have a dog that's had both eyes removed and is 16 years old, she's still going strong and if it wasn't obvious a about the eyes no one would even guess!
