I finally got the pins out of my hand last week, that’s the good news! The bad news? I can hardly move my finger, I can’t bend it at 2 knuckles and my DR is likely going to send me to expensive physical therapy that I will have to pay for out of pocket. Even […]

Jezebel tried to kill Nik. At least that’s how I’m telling people the story. Jez has been really good while being aced for her walk rides that Nik and i got to thinking it might be a good idea to try her un-drugged. I’ve had better ideas in my life. So we get Jez out […]

I wasn’t even going to ride, but it was so quiet that i decided why not. We had a successful trail ride the other day and even though spring was in the air and my horse was a touch cranky i though it a good idea to tack up the girl and put a few […]

My girl got a stone bruise its taken a couple weeks to heal. Granted i am giving her extra time off because because i’m a little paranoid about it manifesting into a abscess (dodged a bullet on that one) while this resting of the bruised foot was occurring a semi private pasture became available. One […]

It’s been a long time since I’ve written and not because nothing is happening. With work, and the bitter terrible winter cold (Yes, I’m being dramatic) I’ve been unmotivated to write. So an update is in order. Jezebel is wonderful and just as pretty as ever.  Over the fall we had a really bad case […]
