I'm going to be quiet because I might possible just be a TEEEEENSY bit of an enabler.

But good grief, gigantic saddle on him much? Poor guy. Might want to watch for signs of arthritis in his back if he has been toting that much stuff around on his back for a long time. I'm in the 'don't ride minis' boat so seeing big old westerns saddles on little guys like that makes me a teensy bit mad. The mini saddle is a little better but 60lb kid + full sized western saddle that probably weights 20+lbs? No. He sure is cute though and looks like he is loved and has quite the personality!

Hahahaha! Everyone needs a mini, right?

And RIGHT? Oregon horse people, I tell you!
I have to completely agree with the no riding idea. That would basically be like riding Atticus because he's 'big enough' [coincidentally, Atti is also 39 inches right now! Haha] NO. Joking about riding him=yes. Riding him=absolutely not.

Yes, everyone! Seriously, they are so much fun as long as you don't get a crabby-pants like my Sour was ;) and he looks like he is anything but crabby.

Its totally not just Oregon people though xD you ought to see the mini stallions in spade bits with big boys (like 10 years old) on them trying to get them to the pictures on pony party advertisements! O_O

Gotta say much as the curb bit on "Mojo" in that first picture made me cringe...the sparkliness and unicorn horn.are.freaking.adorable.

He looks like he has had good care. The big saddle was likely a joke. It was the bay's saddle , put on for a gag photo.

With your foray into trick training, this guy could be perfect. Maybe, just maybe, you are destined to start a dog and pony show. I means a goat and pony show. And travel the country amusing children and doing benefits, and ending up on the Oprah Winfry show. Oh , wait, maybe a different show, seeing as how she isn't on TV anymore.

I don't normally support impulse buys, but I have to say, this one seems "right"!

That's horrifying, Allyson! Poor minis!
I liked that one too. TOO CUTE. :)

Haha, Caroline! [ETA: thanks for the "impulse buy" support! Haha we'll see!] You and Gman. He told me basically that same thing, about Oprah, when we went to the zoo! Haha That would be great though. So much fun. I adore meeting people and sharing stories and whatnot. One of my friends, who likes to give people "titles", gave me the title of "Keeper of Life and Tale Weaver" based, apparently, on my ability to care for living things and my storytelling.

I'm getting a little antsy, I haven't heard back yet about him. :( But some people don't check their email everyday, or maybe he's not "right" for here and I won't hear back...who knows.
We'll see, I guess.

I realized something mildly distressing this morning.
It might be a good thing...but it's still distressing.
[another 'annoying' Gman story, incoming. ]
Point one: I'm an 'overly' empathetic feeler. Literally anything in distress - plant, animal, human, slug, snail, worm, doesn't matter...except spiders, no compassion for spiders - twists my heart around and makes me hurt [why I could never be a vet!! Haha].

I was talking to Gman yesterday about his grandpa and everything [yesterday he was up to 5 heart attacks in 4 days.... :(((] and just through Gman's texts [haha, Caroline! ] I could feel his stress/sadness readings being offf the charts.
Long story short, my heart was breaking. And it was/is still breaking today.

Then, this morning, after I woke up at 3am and couldn't sleep anymore because I felt so sad, I realized that the last/other time my heart broke THIS badly for another being was when Lacey had her first, diagnosed, ERU attack and lost a lot of the sight she still had back then.

And that is distressing me.
Gman is so important to me that, somewhere along the line, he's achieved Lacey-levels of attachment? I don't even think I'm [or ever have been, for that matter] that attached to my PARENTS.
So I'm kind of freaked out about that now.
Lace is like my soul was born on 4 legs...and yeah, somehow Gman has always felt like the other half of who I/we were 'meant' to be...but he's not like LACEY........right?

Plus side: feeling freaked out = lessening of empathy pain.

Anyway, I don't know what to do about it and it needed to come out, so I'm just ranting about it here.

Thanks for listening.

1. Guess who just got Lacey an equine sports massage "package" for Christmas?
Ohhhh yeah.

Double bonus? It's free!
Apparently the lady is a certified canine masseuse who's taking classes to become a equine masseuse and is to the point in her classes where she needs to practice on an "actual" horse. She needed a calm horse that would be pretty well behaved for everything...and guess who has an angel of a horse?
She has references that I'm certainly going to look into prior to letting her work on Lacey, but otherwise this looks good!
Lacey loves new people [ok, ok, I do too - she taught me too! It's all her fault! ] and she loved the massage I bought her a few years ago...she's going to go nuts for multiple massages!


2. In case any of you are interested in the "Gman's Grandpa" saga, I guess it's looking like his grandpa will be ok!
And guess how many heart attacks the poor guy had since last Friday?
E I G H T.

But really. That's insanely crazy. And I'm glad it looks like he's doing better.

And, on the "cute" side of things, I told Gman on...Sunday that if he needed to talk to someone who would just listen, I would be happy to do that. AND HE TOTALLY DID THAT TODAY.
Didn't blatantly label it as such, obviously, but we were texting back and forth for 3 hours [like a text every 10-ish minutes] before he was done talking [as in, the last text he sent me read "hahaha" after every other text had given information of one sort or another...other than information that said "I'm laughing uproariously now" ]. And that has NEVER happened. Ever.
And by the time we stopped talking, he was texting in a significantly more cheerful manner. I love helping people cheer up! Or trying to help cheer people up. Haha

3. I had my last final today! So it is officially Christmas Break for Emily!! Yaaaaaaaay!
AND, I got into one of the classes I really wanted today too! For whatever reason, the waitlist on that class hadn't been opened and all 30 seats were already taken. I REALLY needed to take that class so I had been checking on it everyday, hoping someone would drop it and I could jump on it before anyone else. And today it happened! Woohoo!

Today has been a really good day. I hope you guys are all having similarly great days!!
