You might notice that things are looking a little blue-er around here. I decided it was time for a few little changes to the blog but didn’t want to do anything drastic. I added a few things to the menu bar at the top, changed a few other little things with the layout, and added some stuff to the sidebar. It should make navigation a little easier.
It was a pretty boring weekend around here. We got a lot of rain last week so the barn was swampy. We mainly just handwalked (which really is just Henry grazing because I get tired of trying to drag him around) a few days and that was it.
Luckily I have the coolest horse in the world and sitting in his stall for almost a week doesn’t change a thing about him so yesterday when it was finally dry I just got right on and did a dressage ride. Love ponies that are so easy to own. I also got to try his new Firefly bonnets on him. As usual – LOVE!
Then he did more of this:
Told you it was a boring weekend.
When I got home from the barn yesterday I was feeling particularly fat and gross (WHY IS THERE SO MUCH HALLOWEEN CANDY STILL IN MY HOUSE AND WHY IS IT SO DELICIOUS?) so I decided to go for a run. I used to run a lot when I did triathlons but I quit mainly because I have chronic exertional compartment syndrome, which makes running difficult for me. I guess I just kinda forgot about what exactly that entails and kept trying to push through it before I remembered that once it starts it doesn’t get better, so 3.5 miles later my dumb ass ended up hobbling the rest of the way home. Legs are not happy today. I really need to get a gym membership back so I can swim again because something’s gotta give.
If you’re wondering why there have been basically no pictures of me riding lately, it’s because my awesome photo-taking friend has been pretty sick. So if you ever want to see decent pictures again, send her some positive vibes! Get well soon Amy, I think everyone misses you.
