Not Dead, Not Quite Alive

We got a perfect storm of daylight savings time (hate), winter weather starting (ick), and real life getting kind of nuts (ok fine I guess). 
such a lovely lady
I haven't gotten in the training hours I'd like to with Zoe. 
but our selfie game is pretty incredible
I showed up as it was getting dark while a storm was blowing in the other night. Even in the stall, I could tell my sweet baby mare was #Zoewild and all I really wanted was a proof of life photo, so after grabbing said selfie, I stuck her on a lunge line and watched her run like a loony. 

I mean. As much of a loony as a Zoebird can be, which doesn't even register on the scale of "horse I've had in the past", but I definitely respected the little lady's self-expression. 
mmmm that ombre' tho
When she'd gotten the wiggles out, we did a little ground work and called it a day. 

And you know what?

It was fun. I smooshed her smooshy face and she was friendly and sweet. 
unrelated adorable picture
She officially starts grown up training with my dressage trainer here in a couple weeks, which will be really nice for my very-full schedule right now. We have a clinic coming up that I'm excited about. 
saddle situation=not resolved
We aren't doing anything ground breaking or cool or amazing. 

And it's still fun. 

Every day.

  3. Zoe doesn't mind a little work break. She might mind grown up dressage school... but probably not.
    And I LOVE that browband!

    1. She likes having things to do, so hopefully she'll like school.

  4. Selfie game REALLY strong. Sometimes the best moments with ponies are the unplanned relaxed ones

    1. We're definitely hitting the "unplanned" part of that real hard lately.

  5. nothing -- NOTHING -- beats that feeling of stress melting away just from getting to hang out with our horses.

  6. I need to up my selfie game. Some weeks you just have to survive and tell your horse they are pretty instead of riding.

  7. Being able to just chill and hang with the ponies always beats just about anything else. Love the browband.

  8. Wonderful to see you & Zoe so happy. That browband does look so pretty on Z; I look forward to the saddle shopping for Zoe post(s)!

  9. It's so much better when it's fun. Other than fitness I think horses learn even if you don't ride as often.

    1. Yes for sure. Daily riding (other than fitness) is definitely more for us than for them.
