I've been attempting to cut costs here and there. Less groceries. Less Driving (right, haha). More working. But alas, bills just keep cropping up. Vet bills, farrier, $115 worth of hay, feed, rent, tuition, books, new mattress....motherf.
Apparently, Dec/Jan are the most expensive months this year. I simply could not muster up $95 for shoes this month (WOW I know ONLY $95 for shoes?! I'm spoiled here in Missouri but I still complain. I suppose its better than $200/set for Ohio shoes). My excuses for pulling the shoes were as follows..
-50 degree weather-no ice
-curious to see how his feet do without shoes for the first time since...ever
So far its been not a success. Its been 4 days and his feet are sore & chipping already. I feel terrible. I had the money, I just would rather not spend it if I didn't HAVE to. Go ahead & lecture me, but I will give this a try for a few more weeks & see if his baby TB feet improve and if not, shoes go back on I suppose.
So we will see about that.
In other news, I went to visit my pony in STL yesterday :D I usually only see her twice a year, but this was like the 5th time I got to see her sweet face! Much excitement.
The boyfriend even came with me. GASP! I was pretty stoked because I thought he'd want to watch football all day but instead he braved the semi-chilly weather to appease my need to see the fluffy yak.
How adorable :)
They all wanted a piece.
Z is SO fluffy in the winter. Like, seriously, fluffiest beast I've ever seen. Her leg hair is a goof 4 inches long and her body hair is about 2-3. To quote Despicable Me, "SO FLUFFY!"
She even lets me get on her, which is even more super cute. I hope one day she will probably tolerate my future spawn playing around/on her.
Pony kisses are the best :D
