Some days we play

While I’m hopeful that maybe Amber and I can putz around again with a bit of walk/trot/canter, I’m okay if we can’t do more than that, like western dressage or something. I’ll be sad for sure, because after nearly 8 years together, all of…

#TBT: That time I visited a Mini farm

Not a mini farm. But a Mini farm. Like so. I finally got my giant and old external hard drive up and running, desperate to get photos and other memorabilia off of it since I moved to my much smaller, lightweight, portable external HD….

Checking In

So, there’s not much Amber update to update. She’s doing well, and after we’ve hand-walked and rode at a walk safely for…well actually about 6 weeks now with all the crappy weather, I figured it was time to let Amber loose. For the first…

In search of: buddy

Hey blogosphere! So I figured I’d put this out here see if any of you guys knew of anything. We’re casually looking for a buddy for Whisper. The past 2 winters we’ve had a lot of trouble with Whisper. In the summer she’s fine,…

WTF Vegas

It snowed. In Vegas. I thought we were living in the desert. Apparently not. Maybe it’s a decade thing? It snowed 3.5″ in 2008, so maybe it was just a wee bit late and decided to hit the desert again in 2019? Then again…

Walking on not-sunshine

Since all Amber and I can do right now is walk, like many many many many many many other posts I’ve had in the past…ahh….year lol, I’m trying to come up with fun and NEW blog post titles. I may or may not have succeeded…

New Year, New Goals

I did have goals at the start of last year – they were pretty vague goals, but goals nonetheless. So, let’s see how I did! Horse goals: Figure out what’s going on with Amber: I am quite happy that I can cross this off!…

A new season is coming

You guys. I did a thing. A non-horsey thing. And not just any thing. 2019 is the year that I am going back to school. I am equal parts petrified and excited haha. After doing some researching and asking around early 2017, I decided to…

Bloghop: Favorites of 2018

I figured I may as well hop on the bloghop bandwagon! It’s been one helluva 2018 lol. Favorite Horse Show Photo It doesn’t look like much, but this was Whisper’s first show in at least 5 years, and my first show with her in…

Maybe (east coast) you’re not the worst thing ever

Kudos to anyone noticing the Galavant reference there lol. (And here’s an Amber update!) Which I know, the title is at odds with everyone’s weather posts, and I probably got the best of the weather, but I got back Monday from a mini vacay…

Time Frame

Well, nothing remotely interesting has been happening at all, except perhaps the amazing weather. Vegas is usually 7-8 months of summer, 3-4 months of winter, and 2 weeks each of fall and spring. We’re actually seeming to get a taste of fall this year!…

The best things come from unlikely places

Lately, it feels that everything has just been….difficult. Piling on. Now that I’m not riding consistently, I’m REALLY trying to get any doctor visits I need out of the way so I can keep staying healthy and fix as well as I can any previous injuries that need…

Blog Hop: The horse you bought

This blog hop originated from Cathryn at Two and a Half Horses. It’s been a lot of fun seeing flashbacks of people’s horses where they first started and where they are now. Before and after stories are some of favorites. I’m a little late to…

This sucks

For the past 2 years, I have managed to evade the Plague of sicknesses. It could also be because whenever sick people are at work I Clorox every single thing I’m going to touch. Well, I didn’t this time. I blame my coworker who…

Blog Hop: Millionaire Me

Even though Olivia probably never meant for this to be a blog hop, this is too good not to. I’m also going to go with the premise that even though it says “millionaire” that I have an unlimited amount of funds. Because this is…

So…how has she been?

Amber seems to be doing okay. I think she’s finally settling a bit. It could be a number of things, but she’s seemed more content these days than before. Perhaps she’s realizing that it’s “the life” to just eat all day and get loved…

So many thoughts

I’m certainly one of those people that if presented with a problem that requires waiting (not patience because I have none lol), I have to have a gazillion different plans of action should the problem begin to resolve itself in a certain way. Then, I proceed to…
