We are all aware I haven't been riding. I miss it terribly actually and I have contemplated screwing vets orders and riding Yankee 15 days early but I've been good, I swear it.
Mostly besides work and school, I've been doing laundry, working out, cleaning stalls and mildly obsessing about The OG. Super fun stuff.

The new name actually came about from EME friends. They call Bacardi the Red Dragon because of how he acts in certain situations. For one, his tail in incredibly expressive if you haven't noticed and one of the girls commented that along with his chevron clip, he looked like a dragon. For two, he has a tendency to...explode. Not as badly anymore, but he still throws tantrums. Thus, "training my dragon". I have always been obsessed with OTTBs and retraining them is a massive passion of mine. There is nothing better than taking a psycho OTTB and turning them into a lovely creature.
So thats that.
Secondly; I've finally sat down and looked at the shows for the year offered in the area, but can't decide on a one of em'.

|Me?? Get eliminated. Noooo|
I know. I can't believe it either *eye roll*
|Will I ever do this again? We may never know|
So that might be a little thing.

It was pretty disgusting. Pus, ooze, grossness. Luckily, I don't think it will need stitches and I will reevaluate after I get home tonight. I cleaned, wrapped it and turned him out for the night anyways, in which he promptly ran around like an asshole in the dark and muddy field.
He has the tendency to freak me out, and has been pushing my patience this week with airs above the ground and running around like crazy in the pasture and now this. He is so fucking bored.
I've been crossing my fingers he keeps his shoes, doesn't upset his tummy and now that he doesn't lose his wrap in the night. Dammit Yanks!!!
On the plus side, Yankee looks incredible. So fat, shiny and dappling out. He honestly looks better than he ever has IMO with me or anyone else. So freaking proud.

|He will be back at this soon!|
LASTLY, if you made it this far, stay tuned for a contest post coming up Monday!! By then, we will have Penny Oaks results too and hopefully I will not have died from the Tough Mudder.
Have a great weekend ya'll!
