Hello blog!
I've been awful about writing lately, in any capacity, which should be obvious by my last few ramblings-of-incoherent-thoughts-strung-together-into-a-post... things.
Also, warning in advance, I'm not about to do much better in the near future...

We snuggle and nap together.

For one, MOVING. This is happening - the first week in November, I'm taking my car and a few things, and then two weeks later, my "house" follows me with the rest of my things, and then a few weeks after that (if finances are still in order), the Queen (Lady) herself moves across the state. Life changes, y'all.
Also, TIME. Re-read the last paragraph and make a guess as to my current amount of free time. When I do get to sit down for a while, watching Doctor Who sounds a thousand times better than writing. Sorry (not sorry).
And FOCUS. Regrettably, my poor ponies are currently having hay, grain, and water thrown at them and I kiss their cute noses every morning, but little else. I'll pop on Lady every so often and have a bit of fun, but that's it. Therefore, next to no new pony-related content. Sad. :(

Proof that I do ride sometimes. Also proof that my horse has crazy hair.

But I miss writing on this blog and keeping up with other people and all the other fun stuff that goes along with it. So maybe I can expand from the horse stuff and include some random stories about moving into a travel trailer, preparing for school, and any other crazy pursuit I find myself distracted by on the way.
After all, 75% of my reasons for this blog's existence are to be my own personal record.
So, here's me wishing I could say I'm back to writing regularly, but its not a promise, its a hope!

Whoops. So much for writing regularly and posting on time.

Life kind of happened. Let's see.... the car sat up on blocks for a week, I absolutely adore my friends right now, we've been dealing with a death in my extended family, which caused an out of country trip for a week.

Hello country-that-I-have-not-seen-in-a-while.

Lady has been what I will call "stable" the last while. She's allowed out on pasture full time for the moment, but her pasture is practically dried up, and I'm searching for a good source of hay to feed her until we move.
I no longer feel comfortable turning her out in a herd situation. Perhaps once Comanche leaves then she can go back out with Tempest, but for right now, she is happier and more relaxed on her own. Wow... the things I will do for this lovely horse.

See how old she's gotten this year?  (Maybe I need to do a comparison post...) Her winter coat is coming in and it is super dark... totally new to me. She's always been a bright red color in the winter, not this liver chestnut look-alike.  Right now our rides are limited to walking with a tiny bit of trotting. She doesn't sweat or wear out easily per se, but her muscles can only take so much before she is sore. So... little bits at a time.
My biggest focus right now is getting some more weight on her. Yeah, she looks okay, but her ribs are showing and with her immune system being so weird right now, I want some extra cushion on her before we go into winter.
Therefore... guess who is slowly getting their daily feed doubled.... and guess who's bank account has a sad face on it right now?  Yup, that would be my life right now!

On a happy note, our groundwork and rides lately have both been absolutely lovely! I'll try to write on that next week.
