Checking In

Whoa, is my Cami horse fat or what? I swear she has cellulite on her butt. Hey I knew she was tubby, but DANG. Do you think photos put 100lbs on a horse if they put 10lbs on us? She is fine boned, but her legs look like toothpicks in comparison to the girth.

Her weight of course has nothing to do with my schedule. I'm blaming it on the pasture. Look at that field they are walking through. It rained late into the season, and never really got hot enough to crisp the grass. It just kept growing.

Iris the Virus is so fat she waddles. Seriously. She's kind of a short backed mare with a big barrel anyway...but she is turning her stifle joints out a little to get around her gut. She and Maisa are back together in the field so they are slimming down some. They play. Especially fun is tag, or I run at you, then you run at me, and we'll both rear...party buck and run off again woohoo woohoo. They are just goofy. I've taken to calling Cami, Maisa and Iris 'The Three Stooges'. All grass and no work makes for goofy horses. They careen around, bounce off each other and freeze and stare at me like, "Hey are we going to go do something?"

Iris resembles a 'Thelwell Pony'...I swear to god. One day when I went out to catch her, she dropped her head, looking at me out of the tops of her eyes. It was a straight on shot. Have you ever seen the tee-shirt with the pony, and the script says, "I can only please one person a day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow isn't looking good either." Well that would be Iris.

It has been pretty hectic since December 15th. I hope things have leveled out to just mildly insane and I can do more with my horses, and post more often. We'll see. lol

Quick, someone grab her bags!

We're holding them hostage, until you check out;)

I'll try and be more present. It's just been rough. I rode Cat today. She seemed pretty good. We'll see how she comes back after a year and a half or more off. She didn't seem lame, but we only walked. I had my shoer put 'Natural Balance' shoes on to see if they helped. There is also a new shot, I think it is kind of a combo between legend and adequan. I'm going to give that a try too.

Oh, and it is very good to see all of you too. Sorry I've been so absent. I hope things are good for all of you. I haven't even made it over to FF. Kind of figured I was out of the loop, and would take awhile to catch up.

I really have to make an effort to take some "me time"...lol It is coming through necessity, and insistence of those that are forced to be around me. I'm am not the most pleasant when stretched so thin.

HP, gooopy woman, do not ever apologize for having a life outside of the blogosphere!!

We just enjoy reading you.
And we know how crazy your life has been for some time now.

Just try to take some time for yourself. And it doesn't have to be here!!

Oh, only really exciting thing that happened?
I finally learned how to bold comment text.

yeah. You haven't missed much.

kestrel said...

I learned bold but then I forgot...
Good to hear from you, and hope things are slowing down. Seems like it's been a nuts year for everyone!

Cut-N-Jump said...

So I drop you an email t o touch base, you post and then today I get one from Fern along the same lines. You still alive? lol

Proof that what comes around, goes around. Nobody is immune.

Glad to see you back on top of things HP. Chin up, good things will come.
