Still here...and full of superlatives

Sorry to leave you all hanging with one of the most depressing post ever, and thank you for all the kind comments and thoughts.  I have just been flying around like a mad person, working on red tape for job stuff, cleaning stalls, riding in between rain drops, working at the tack store, hanging with my mom (who is here through the end of the year), deep cleaning my house, etc etc etc.  If I refuse to think about it I don't cry, but driving alone in my car is a dangerous place for the state of my makeup.
This guys is good for lots of love
  I'm loving reading all your secret santa posts, I've managed to miss that train two years in a row...sad face.  We did have the most awesome impromptu get together with local blogger/horse girls the other night and seriously, BEST. SWAG. EVAHHH!  I need to get pictures of it all so I can share it here.  We had good food and laughter till our stomachs hurt.  Seriously why do we have things like jobs and school, lets just hang out and play ponies forever and ever...ok ok don't answer that.
Fun times from last year
I've been getting a few rides in on the best horse EVAH! between rain storms and general December insanity.
I just want to cuddle him

Check out that new bonnet!
After our coldest, snowiest November ever, we have had the warmest December ever (notice no gloves).
Mud wallower
We are talking near 60 degrees and even above on several days.  Turns out Prisoner likes to search for the muddiest of mud holes.  He is also the hairiest TB ever, he was shaved at the end of October and he is currently wearing a sheet and is plenty warm.
I popped over a few jumps the other day and we had zero rushing!
Ghetto photoshop skillz
I thought my position would be horrendous, but I was pleasantly surprised.  I did find out that he hates loose ring snaffles with a single joint, or maybe he loves them.  Either way I had no brakes and quickly switched him back into his D-bit Dr. bristol.  As mush as I love him, he is a little opportunistic.  I need to do a post with all my fun sunny pictures from Phoenix and SoCal.
Sneak peak


  1. Go Prisoner! He's so awesome! Got jumping skills and mud wallowing skills hehe. Can't beat that!

  2. Yay a blog post!

    Being alone is cars is hard. Too much time to think.

    1. PS Blaze faced bay boys help make it better if you let them.

  3. Cars and showers. Those were my tricky places. But then you hang out with a Prisoner and bake things and get presents from friends, and life isn't too terrible anymore :)

  4. Yeah my car is kind of my "thinking place". I think all of my life's questions and problems have been solved/cried about in there.

    Great shots of you and Prisoner! :)

  5. Fab photos as always, glad the weather has picked up for Dec. Long may it last, frozen tundra need not apply for residence *nope*
    Keep on keeping on and the beautiful blaze boy will help brighten the dark days.

  6. Cars are the worst. I think that playing ponies should totally count as school/jobs!

  7. happy holidays and yay for no rushing to the fences!!
