Graduation Visit

The entire family wanted to see Yankee today, and after a WHOLE day of worrying and not being able to see him (regarding the crib collar/fly sheet issue) I was relieved to see that the swelling had almost all gone down and he was almost 100% back to normal. I haven't ridden yet to see if he's stiff, but PHEW!

Doesn't he look ridiculous in his fly gear?! (also, that is my Mizzou Alumni shirt. Feels weird to say...)
Yeah I am one of THOSE owners. Decking their horses out in fly suits. (In my defense, he seems to be happier when he doesn't have flies eating him non-stop. He is quite the baby.)
At least he doesn't have leg wraps for flies. Now THAT would be excessive. 
 Also, I found this gem at the grocery store today..

Why yes, that IS a 25lb. bag of carrots.

I was tempted to buy it just to say I had 25lbs. of carrots. But I didn't.

In other news, I missed my favorite horse trial this weekend, but I also am sending the Queeny Park entry tomorrow to make up for missing MCPC.

Prrrretty stoked, even if I'm not the one riding.

I hope to ride the pony for the first time in like, a week, tomorrow in between crazy paperwork for Alum stuff, paying remaining school tuition, job hunting and etc. etc.

I promise more exciting blog posts will come in the future. XC schooling May 20th and various other fun happenings.
