I wanted to apologize for the delay in announcement ( I was even going to make a sweet video with the names I drew, etc, but I've had zero time). Remember that snowstorm I was telling you about? Yeah it threw a major curve ball in my life... I just got un-stuck yesterday- thats four days stuck. I'm pretty sure I had several panic attacks, worrying about 3 jobs and how the horses would get fed. GAH GAH GAH. The most frustrating part is that NO ONE believed that I could still be stuck days later after a giant winter dump. I got shit from everyone, and a few people even told me I was being lazy and inconveniencing people on purpose- which blew my mind. Apparently there is no sympathy for people who have zero 4wd vehicles, that live at the bottoms of hills and are helpless in snowstorms.
GUESS WHAT ELSE. We have ANOTHER 6-9 inches coming our way tonight. Fucking awesome. Winter, I HATE YOU.
Drrrrrrrrumroll please...the winners arrrre...
SprinklerBandit and Cuna won for False!
Lindsay and Apollo won for True!
And the correct answer is....TRUE! He can actually free jump to 5'3! A few people mentioned they remembered reading it somewhere, which is impressive since the last time I free jumped him over 4ft was in 2010. Long time followers with great memories :) I've never tried anything over 4'9 with anyone mounted, but I really don't think he is capable.
|This was at 5ft!|
|This was the 5'3 jump. Worst. Video. Still. Ever.|
Hopefully I can get out and ride this week..I haven't ridden in what seems like ages.
Sorry to anyone who entered and didn't win, but I appreciate the following and excitement in the contest! The winners can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work out deets. I will do portraits for anyone and have been slowly getting an etsy together, so feel free to shoot me an email until I get my shit together
