300th Post

At not quite the 2-year mark (that's at the end of the month), I've made it to 300 posts! Considering my track record with starting and abandoning projects, that's a milestone I'm fairly excited about. I have lots of ideas swirling around in my head to write about, including more Pixio usage, but the weather has taken a turn for the nice, which means I'm outside more and at my computer writing less. So. Not sure when, or if, I'll have time to sit down and marshal my thoughts. Or sort through all the HD video I'm starting to stack up (#firstworldproblems).
Last night I considered using the 75-degree weather to start scrubbing a winter's worth of grime off the horses, but it was just TOO NICE so I cajoled DH into hitting "the trail" with me... which from the house means, just wandering down the gravel road a little bit.
Checking out the neighbor's cows.
Took the alta escuela for a spin! (SUMMER DAPPLES ARE COMING AND I'M EXCITED)
Tom was sunbathing. 
We did hose them off after we rode, and I made a lackadaisical effort at scrubbing her tail haha. 
The terrible twosome studiously ignoring us.

  1. Mmm, mmm, sun and green grass! And yeah, all that video and no time to edit - that's why I haven't, and likely never will, pulled the trigger on a sweet camera. I love the concept of getting better feedback from my time spent riding alone, but ain't nobody got time for editing daily to keep up with it all lol!

    1. I'm getting an overwhelming amount of feedback just from watching the footage, so at least that part of the investment was sound! When I think about trying to break it down into clips people might watch (ain't nobody but me gonna make time to watch the whole boring ride 😂) that I get completely done with the whole thing lol. So it's very possible it just becomes more of a personal tool and only used sparingly for blog media 🤷

  4. Happy 300th!
    Sounds like a lovely evening! I wish there was a nice dirt road like that near me. I think Rio would really love to be a "trail" horse, but with the EPM I wouldn't trust him in a real trail situation. A road like that would be PERFECT!

    1. Thank you! I wish it was dirt, it's actually gravel. My barefoot horses are not the biggest fans 😂 but I alternate the road and the grassy area on the side, so we manage. I really do need to invest in hoof boots!

  6. Great group of photos, but I think the sunbathing kitty is my favorite :) Congrats on 300 posts (and in two years, wow!) I'm glad this is a project you've stuck with and that I've gotten to know you as a result :)

    1. I am so glad I dove into this project head first (like I tend to do) -- even though sticking with it has been hard, I have made SO MANY invaluable friendships that I now can't imagine my life without <3
