One is myself.
I did it again.
While I was doing this....
|(Celebrating A's 21st)|
You may all remember a few years ago when I did the EXACT same thing with with a 3 point german made breastplate. I spent lots more on that one.
Whats a tack whore to do though? I guess my reasoning (I can slightly remember saying this to myself) was that "hey, its an HDR, Jackie is taking her 5 point back, I NEEEEED one (DUH WE ARE EVENTERS (THAT DONT EVEN EVENT BTW)) and its soooo cheap. Yes. MUST HAVE. Bid please!"
My phone bling blooped at me around 11pm and I was like "Holy shit guys, I guess I accidentally bought a 5 point?" All of my friends ride so they of course supported my dumb ass, but silently judged me because I had been complaining about the $5 cover because I'm "too poor for this shit".
And thats the story of me and Ebay and why I am an asshat.
The second assface is my silly pony. Apparently when you give an 11 year old hock injections it takes away 8 years of training. Like, all of it.
I have the war wounds to prove it (blisters).
I lunged Yankee tuesday and he was looking FABULOUS. And fresh. He spent half the time bucking. I chalked it up to being penned up in his stall for the required 3 days after injections. But seriously, fabulous. Toe flicky, hind end engaged, back round, etc.
He feels like a new man.
Too new. Like out of the uterus new. Jerk.
I rode yesterday and about cried.
Pone was THE definition of green. As soon as I got on he was tense, nervous, tight, resistant, tossy, jerky and assholey. He yanked on my hands, danced sideways, tossed his head, squealed, bucked, resisted contact, danced in place (oooh la la, PIAFFE!) and made me look a complete idiot (of course everyone was in the ring that day).
All he really seemed to want to do was dance around sideways and be an idiot, so I said FINE LETS SCHOOL HALF PASS FOR HALF HOUR.
They were flawless. He loved it. I guess he just wanted to dance?
