I know it's not technically summer yet, but I think we are finally past all the chilly mornings for a while. Not that this stops Conrad from burrowing under blankets while inside. But at least our walks are warm now! No more sweaters for a while, so I have cleaned them and they are stashed … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Summer Begins!
Eli's vet visit went well today. His ultrasound showed a lot of improvement, so I couldn't be happier about that! We have a plan going forward for Eli for the near future. Step one is get him shod. He is a bit overdue as his farrier has not been able to make it out, but … Continue reading Cautiously Optimistic
Last week, I experienced two drastically different consumer transactions. The tone of customer service played a large role in both. In one instance, I had been left cautiously ... we'll just say not pessimistic. The second instance won me over yet again as a customer for life. The key thing here is that customer service … Continue reading Customer Service
The state legislature may have gavelled out but work hasn't quite settled down yet! Hopefully by next week I can attend to this space a little more regularly.

Breeches.com is offering up to 70% off -- using the code MEMORIAL30 gets you an additional 30% of ALL products. So now would be the time to pick up those cute denim breeches … Continue reading Bath Time and Sale Time
Let's just enjoy the cuteness of Conrad walking, this time sans sweater: I worked until midnight last night so I am not moving super fast today. Apparently this week is known as "Hell Week" here. I have been here for over ten years and somehow missed that appellation until now. Trying not to count the … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Waddles
Eli had a third shockwave treatment this morning. He jogged for the vet before treatment, and he looked a lot better then he had previously. He didn't even look too bad after flexion. The next step is more hand walking and an ultrasound in two weeks to see where we're at. (I was hoping for … Continue reading Looking Better
Eli is still stuck just hand walking ... and he gets lots and lots of grazing ... is he actually getting fat? Fat for him, yes, but is he objectively fat? Maybe not quite yet. But yesterday was my birthday, and coincidentally I had the opportunity to ride not one but TWO horses after work. … Continue reading Back in the Saddle
Conrad is my little reliable bright spot at the end of the day. Blogging is a little slow lately and not just because Eli is injured. WORK IS NUTS. BUT it's all over on Memorial Day! Yes, I will be at work ON Memorial Day. It's the last day of the legislative session, and this … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Countdown to Sine Die!
I had to teach my phone "suspensory" is actually what I mean to type. First, if Eli were ever going up for sale, obviously this post would not exist. But he's not. And second, I am not putting hard numbers on anything here (which may be a disappointment but it's not happening). This post is … Continue reading What’s the Going Rate on a Torn Suspensory?
