In other news, I jump started the "Feb goals list" this week and did alright with it. We only ate out once this weekend, probably because we are both broke as shit, but hey, it counts right? Not one drop of alcohol either. Also because we are broke and did not participate in bar life frivolity. This might prove difficult later in the month. I did not work out, specifically, but I mucked stalls and sprinted to and from the barn because of cold, so that counts too right? In the ways of riding I actually rode THREE times, yay goals! I couldn't believe that actually happened because I had dental surgery Wed and will get the other side done this week too. I did get a lot of adult things done though, like register my car and get a license and all that junk.
In other other news, the weather, like we all know, is intense and making life ridiculous per usual. It was rather nice this week, minus the mud due to snow melt, and then it POURED Sunday and then it turned to snow.
Oh also, Blankesicles!
|Yes, its standing up on its own.|
I'm guessing her wide shoulders & quarters fill out what would normally fit a horse her size (78??), but still...goodness mare! Bacardi is huge compared to her in height and I couldn't believe that his blankets didnt fit her!
Determined to ride today in the cold and snow, I opted to take both out at the same time. It was...interesting.
I've ponied him several times since I've owned him and never had issues, so I wasn't really surprised considering his track record this winter when he pulled some fuckery.

I packed my pocket with treats and everytime he spooked I would just halt Lilly, let him fret for a second and then he would come over to me, sigh and stand there. At this point, I would stuff his face with treats and love on him. Seemed to work pretty well and after 40 minutes he relaxed enough to trot a little. Lilly's demeanor was most likely the contributing factor in repressing his explosions and I thank her.
|Lilly giving zero fucks while B gives many|
|SO CUTE CANNOT HANDLE|
