While a lot of the equestrians around me have shown already or will show soon this year, I am staying put with Eli. I'd like to show a few times this year, of course. But because of constraints related to my job, I am reluctant to commit to showing anywhere, any time before Memorial Day. … Continue reading Show Plans or No Plans?
It finally feels like spring this week! At, least, during the day. It was still very chilly on our walks in the morning. So Conrad had to don a sweater AGAIN. BUT ... we have some good news! We discovered in looking for a new groomer, that Conrad's groomer is still with the same company, … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Spring!
I think one of the best rides I have had on Eli lately was this past Sunday. He is back to being a joy to ride and the testy rudeness on the ground from colder days past seems to be gone. Maybe for a while? Is it actually Spring yet? Can we forget about freezes … Continue reading Grazing Weather
I wish I could say we have the last of the cold weather for the year behind us, but spring-like temperatures during the day will be giving way to sheet or blanket weather temperatures at night through the weekend. Hopefully it won't freeze! I am waiting to see this legendary wildflower season that has been … Continue reading Seeing Green
Conrad and I walked up to the park on Saturday AND Sunday. The temperatures were mild both days but drizzle and mist plagued us both days as well. But we don't melt in water, so we went!
We all have more daylight after work now, which is great news! But I fell into the barn time vacuum as a result of more daylight and relatively nice weather ... leaving me with less time for chores at home. Whoops! Does anyone else struggle with this once Daylight Savings hits? I had a ton … Continue reading Weekend of More Light
Please tell me what we have been experiencing here in Texas is Winter's last gasp. I layered up Conrad for our walk on Saturday. And once again on Sunday, it was too cold and wet to even bother leaving the house. I think we will both be happier once we can do things outside without … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Last Gasp?
One of the benefits of blogging is a growing collective experience of fellow horse people. (That's probably a nasty trap, too.) So when I asked last week about a handful of products I was curious about, the response was incredibly helpful. And so I picked up a few new-to-Eli things. I am also still working … Continue reading Actionable Items
First, let me just point out that the Equine Couture Erna top is back in stock in navy and black. The mesh sleeves are such a sharp summery look, and the top is ridiculously soft and comfortable. The white one I have looks new after every wash. I am obsessed with the black one. Okay, … Continue reading I Have Questions
Conrad and I made it to the park on Saturday, but it was too cold for me Sunday morning. I am ready for winter to be over. Conrad kept his eye on a vulture while we walked to the park on Saturday. He also keeps his eye on anyone else walking by in the … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Go Away, Cold
