Insert witty title here

Man, I'm having a hard time with posting and well, with life in general these days.  I know everyone else is too.    I am back and forth on posting vs not posting, but to heck with it... I want to keep writing as a bit of a record of things that are happening and keep in touch with other horse bloggers where possible.

So cute
Fred's face is almost all healed up so I turned him out and crossed my fingers he wouldn't hurt himself again. I never did find the source of his injury - I think it might have been the steel roof of the shelter - but I'm not sure.  I thought I had the paddock pretty safe - it's not like there are rusty old farm tools and spools of barbed wire out there, lol - but, well, horses...amiright?

Fred proceeded to play around with Bailey, roll in the sand and then did a couple of laps around the paddock before he settled.

Running makes you thirsty!
He and Bailey then settled into a rousing game of bitey-face.  *sigh*  These two spend a lot of time goofing around.  I guess it is good for them, but Fred always has chomp marks on his face and neck from this.  Anyone know where I can order enough bubble wrap for a 16.3hh horse?

  1. I've talked with a lot of friends about the desire to post to IG/FB/Blogs/Message Boards etc during this time and everyone is taking a different approach. I stopped posting to IG this year for whatever reason (Didn't feel particularly compelled due to losing my trainer/the weather) so continuing to not has been easy haha. The blog is my record for me on my riding and to keep touch with my barn family back home so I will keep on writing when I have something I want to say or pictures I want to share. Though the weather hasn't cooperated much for actual riding lol.

  2. awww he looks so happy to be out and about again! glad his face is healing - that wound was nasssssty ugh. and yea i hear ya on being on the fence about posting. on one hand i don't really know how much there is to say at this point, but on the other hand i think it's really important to keep focusing on doing the things that make us happy. for me, sharing my piece of the horsey experience is something i enjoy. these days, that's gotta be enough of a reason to keep doing it, right?? ;)

  3. I'm totally with you on not knowing whether to post or not and feeling like I should filter my writing. Ugh.

    Looks like a super fun game of bitey face. My boys are enjoying daily bouts, as well lol
