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.
