Some Pictures

We rescheduled the farrier (he said scheduling conflict, I suspect weather, but either way, it's cool). It was so cold and horrible that I just got Izzy out and lunged her again. I'm so thankful to have an indoor arena to do that in, but when it's 30f and blowing 30mph, I just don't have a burning desire to ride. I don't have burning anything at that point--it's just cold.

I will distract you from how boring this post is by posting pictures.

Here is a cute picture of Izzu in her western stuff. I think this is from last week. I've been riding her with her halter under her bridle so I can lunge off of it. Plus, it makes her look more authentic, don't you think?

It's sort of a "cool, tough trail pony" vibe instead of the "warmblood playing at western pony" which is actually what's going on.

Isn't she so very pretty? I want to get her a blue halter, too, but I haven't been able to find one in stores and the person I tried to have custom make one online flaked out.
Such is life.

In the nasty wind yesterday, the trashcan blew over. As Izzy is pointing out, this is a very scary turn of events. The trashcan is not supposed to look this way.

Silly mare. For all her posturing, she didn't even look at it when we walked by.

I am officially having trouble with the stupid uploader again. I thought I had it figured out, but apparently not. Oh well. You may see Izzy's unconcerned face below. I would add a few more pictures, but I am tired of messing with this... again.


  1. Great-looking Western pony you've got there!

  2. Izzy is adorable, no matter what she's wearing. *G*

    I can't cope with riding in the bad weather either and used to spend a lot of time lunging and ground driving when I had n indoor for this time of year. Now it's outdoors in the snow, and "yuck!"

    You know, I must admit, Izzy does look quiet and content in these pics. I think she likes the laid back approach to her work.

  3. She looks absolutely fabulous-and yeah, when I think western, I think lots of tack, everywhere, so the halter bridle thing works perfectly. She also looks smashing in that shade of blue:)

  4. Jean--I was just thinking about ground driving yesterday. We might give that a whirl if it stays nasty out.

    Sarah--your name totally used to be Miles and Miles. It changed!

  5. I think she looks pretty authentic!
