I just got back from the barn and had THE most amazing ride Moro was a very good boy today, nice and relaxed and listening, and we ended up jumping an 85 cm vertical and an 80cm OXER! WOOT!

Beyond the fact I think we're going somewhere, NOT A CLUE!

Happy birthday!

It's been a rough two days for me and for Sky. His feet are not in a good place, wasn't able to keep our vet appointment, and was let down by someone I trusted which lead to Sky being in pain.

Just.... done.

But I went back to visit Mr. Purrpants again, the one that gave my nose kisses. This time he latched onto my face and gave me this look before nuzzling into my neck. His name is Hobbes and I'm definitely a bubbling mess when I hold him.

Still focusing on moving my room around, unpacking, and getting settled before the fish or anything else happens. I haven't even bought a comforter yet. Or books...

Thanks all! It's exciting, we got our keys yesterday and were able to go in today and measure for furniture. Planning to go this weekend and deep clean, as it smells a bit weird and isn't as clean as I like. Not sure when we'll move, hopefully within the week!

Classes start this Monday and so far all I'm in are electives... which I need for my program but I'd really like to get my actual core classes out of the way! I'm sensing a lot of independent study this semester...

Going out to the barn in the morning to trim my barn owner's pony and hopefully ride Nav after.

Hope things get settled for you soon @Skyseternalangel and sorry to hear about the rough times with Sky :(

Happy birthday!

Great trail ride for me today, we tried the new hoofs boots and they are GREAT. Didn't move at all during the whole hike (and it was not a "slow" hike), wet or dry, on rock or grass, downhill and uphill. I am so glad with that !

Awesome! What type are you getting? I'm about to measure my horse for a pair of Renegades.

Sorry to hear @Skyseternalangel ...I hope things get better for your boy! :( And for you! Picking out a comforter is so fun! Luckily it's still summer so you don't 'need' it right now LOL!
@misstralala , awesome, glad to hear you had a great ride!
@NavigatorsMom , congrats on the keys! Yeah, apartments do smell a bit odd when they're empty. Mine did...I was like...okay, need to fill this place & get it smelling like home. LOL! They do a good job cleaning it, but still they always smell a bit funky haha.

I am having a nice glass (or 2...) of wine right now, catching up on the Equestrian Olympics that I DVR'd (I know, I'm so late) this week while I was at work. Better late than never!

Going riding tomorrow mid-morning, so I beat some of the heat. Today wasn't too humid either though.

Ride more, worry less.

@Werecat , I just bought Easyboot Gloves. They perfectly fit my horse hoofs, even if I think I will add a powerstrap (his hind feet always go very under him when he is cantering).

It's like I missed some messages... Sorry for your hard time @Skyseternalangel , I hope the vet will come...
I totally agree with @PoptartShop , apartments definitely smell weird the first times. When you put life in it (and furniture!) it goes better. The one I am with my husband right now smelled sooo bad that I diffused some essential oils when we moved!
