|Urgh, puppy LOOK AT THE CAMERA.|
Red was absoloutly disgusting - probably the dirtiest I have ever seen him. He'd obviously done some rolling and playing, probably got rained on and was just...ew. So I managed to get a quick brush down in before he ate. One of his hooves are slightly chipped for whatever reason and BM said he was a little tender on it but it wasn't really noticeable and definitely wasn't affecting him. Still no issues with founder this summer and his sweet itch is under control thanks to my amazing Barn Manager. He's a happy pony, I think.
We also got the barn closed in today!! We still have to build stalls and etc but that will be later because we are literally out of money. Still praying and hoping that the rezoning goes well, it's very nerve-wracking. We have a chance of getting turned down. It's very slim, but it's possible and that makes me so stressed out. Ah!
In other news, I don't think I'm going to have the trainer I used back out. I do want to find someone else but I don't feel like we are on the same page. I need someone who understands that my goals do not involve an arena, ribbons and buckles. Maybe I can find a natural horsemanship trainer somewhere around here. I just don't feel like our training ideas and hopes for the future go well together. Oh well! I did learn a lot, which is good, and I do want to continue taking lessons at least once a month when they are home and my little arena is set up. I can afford it for myself so why not? Until then, we'll continue things with the people I have around which are amazing and know what they are doing.
I'm hoping to ride sometime this weekend. Life, Y U so busy!?!?!?!?!?!
