well i didn't think this would happen so soon.........
i'm switching lease horses!
getting out to the barn where Texas is is just getting to be too much for me. Either i kill my knees riding my bike the 21 mile round trip or i have to grovel and beg for a ride from friends/family, either paying gas or buying a quick meal on the way for them....... which adds up after a while. Not what i envisioned when i signed the lease papers
so i went looking for a better situation.......... and found it!
going to be leasing a nice little horse named Eddie. he's pretty much the opposite of Texas, lol. Texas is big and tall and loud in colour (paint) and Eddie is compact, short (about 15.1 hands), and solid chestnut with just a tiny snippet of white on his forehead. he's had reining training but hasn't been ridden at all in 'a few months'.
best part is......... Eddie's owner is agreeable to move Eddie to a barn super close to where i live. so stoked! this means i can get out to the barn just about every night, and can bike there without hurting myself - no hills en route, yay!
I am sad to say goodbye to Texas, but when a situation isn't working the way you thought it would, you have to do what you have to do to change the situation to the better.
i'm excited for August 1st. will post photos of Eddie once the lease starts.
