After I write this post I plan on catching up with as many blogs as humanely possible. Who knew you could actually miss internet friends & their lives?
I've literally not done anything besides gym, work & workout since my last post. And take pictures of sunsets.
Which means I also haven't ridden since my lesson on April 1 (with the exception of yesterday) due to the weather and work. The weather has been atrocious. So bipolar and shitty; mud, mud everywhere. Work also is kickin' my ass ya'll. If given the chance I will never live farther than 15 minutes from my place of work ever again. 40 minute commutes essentially destroy your days and the 10-7 schedule is horrendous. So theres that.
The horses have thoroughly enjoyed their "vacation". I literally didn't touch them for 2 weeks. I barely had time to drag my butt into the shower and collapse into bed, let alone mess with them. I really think they had no qualms with it though. They got good and dirty, ate new spring grass & didn't have to do any work and still got fed at regular intervals. What more could an equine want?
Now that I have acclimated to the schedule change at work, I decided to overwork myself yesterday by doing all the things. On top of one of the most intense upper body Crossfit workouts I've ever done, I decided to split one of the pastures into paddocks so the grass can grow in. This involved hand pounding metal posts into the ground, and stringing electric tape, moving round bales and round bale feeders and cleaning, scrubbing and moving the water tub. Naturally, the pain game in my upper body is real today. But now the babes have their own paddock, with their own hay and the field can finally grow in!
Lilly is finally over her bitchy mare heat emotional issues and she was a total doll. Bacardi was a little hyped, but honestly he has settled so much in the last month or so. Glad winter is OVER to say the least. I didn't do much with either, just about a 20 minute hack. I had intended to ride today too, but I woke up to a torrential downpour and it hasn't stopped since.
In other news, Yankee competed at Holly Hill this weekend! Full and total coverage in another post later this week.
Also also, who is going to Rolex?? I will be there with Levi and a few local equestrian friends. Holla t yo girl!
