How Many Girths is Too Many?

Eli does not know the answer to the post title question. And neither do I. But APPARENTLY Eli does not have enough girths. Let's go over what girths he does have. The Professional's Choice Merino Wool girth - by far Eli's favorite. But not ideal for summer. The Professional's Choice Ventech girth - Eli was... Continue Reading →

“Immersed in a Cocoon of Serenity”

Hello! I am still here and kind of did not notice that I have neglected to blog for two months - for many reasons. I have various updates on Eli, Eli's fly boots, Eli's preternatural ability to get randomly injured, Eli's tack, and Eli's mommy's (yes, me) recent realization that is it VERY IMPORTANT to...

I had been hand walking him the last few days, waiting for him to get a new set of shoes. The... Continue Reading →

Summer-Ready Tack

It's about time to get back to truly horsey things up in here. Eli may not be in full work, but I wanted to get him an open front boot with more ventilation compared to his Veredus, which have none. I also wanted to pick up another nylon girth for him, as his oldest one... Continue Reading →
