Jackie got a horse!

I was going to see if Jackie was going to blog about her new bundle of joy...but she didn't. 

SO, I will introduce the bloggin' world the beautiful grey mare that Jackie can now call her own, Isis! (to be renamed eventually)...aint' she a purty thang!?

OH and not only is she totally gorgeous but she a BAMF over fences...

 SWOON. She needs to jump that mare higher ;)

Love her trot! I', pretty upset I have yet to see miss mare, but she lives in KC, Missouri and Jackie will be moving there in a week-ish, so she won't be coming up to CoMo. ROAD TRIP to see new ponyface!

So of course this means Yankee is now again up for lease, and I have a girl from Ohio (the motherland) who is coming to try him on the 28th. I'm scurrying to get him relatively back in shape before then but 100+ temps are yet again making it difficult to ride without dying. Pretty positive I almost stroked out yesterday.

More on my feelings about Yankee potentially moving back to Ohio and me being horse-less...but for now I have to go to my J-O-B.

Holy Shit

...I'm back in the saddle after 5 weeks off.

I feel like a broken record on here...but I was going through the roughest patch of my 21 young years and got super depressed for like...a month and basically had no energy to do anything. It was rough and I'm not going to bore you with the details.

Growin' up is hard to do.

However I fixed a lot of the issues that were bringing me down-I now have 2 full time jobs, I'm not 100% broke anymore, its no longer [as] incinerating outside, I'm done with college (for now) and met a great guy :)

So I rode my ponyface for the first time in what seemed like forever and he was wonderful. Poor chap must've thought I'd died or something.

Here's to riding, blogging, and being happy again :D
