Pony Loves

I'm currently juggling three jobs. I'm not in college any more, and I can tell.

My house is in a very central location--it's 25 minutes south to see Izzy. It's 25 minutes north to work for Stephanie. Thank God, my non-horsey-job is about 2 minutes from my house.

So you see my dilemma--Izzy and one barn job are about an hour drive from Stephanie and the more important and consuming barn job. Oh, and the whole horse thing is facilitated by many hours at the actual job.

I am not doing a very good job of keeping up, sadly. Yesterday I was at Stephanie's barn from 8.30-12.30. Then I was at work from 1-6. Then I went home, fed my husband and the creatures, and sprinted out to the barn to fulfill my duties as stall cleaner as darkness fell. With the help of my incredibly awesome light-up hat (I so need to take a picture. I love this thing.), I made it to Izzy's pasture in the pitch darkness. I petted her and put her shoulder guard on and fed her cookies. Awww. I love her.

Then it's 25 minutes home to change clothes and take the dogs for a run in the dark.

Rinse and repeat.

November 1, you cannot come soon enough (except I have a massive amount of crap to get done this weekend, too).


  1. Gosh you sound busy!!
    The joys of owning horses :)

  2. Ah, yes. I know the feeling. Love the new banner by the way!

  3. You're in EXCELLENT company! I feel the same way...get up at 6am, commute 40 minutes (14 miles, hello traffic), work 7:30-5:30, commute home, walk the dogs who have been crated all day, dart to the barn, return home around 8:30...collapse...repeat.

  4. Ah, gotcha, I'm in Spokane. I have cousins down in the Boise area (Eagle) who used to have Arabs. I'd go down every summer and have a week or two to train for an endurance race. Even at 12 years old after 35 or 50 miles I couldn't walk down stairs for weeks. :)
