I haven’t been riding in over 4 weeks. It feels like a lifetime. My riding prior to that was sporadic anyway, so it’s been one, maybe two rides a week here and there.
However, we’ve had some big life changes. We bought a new house (needs some TLC).
But more importantly, it came with a barn and a pasture (which needs a LOT of TLC).
** I’m in the pink sweater trying to pick up frozen poop.
Ava has already broken the stall, which I fixed all by myself!
I was so proud of myself.
There’s a lot of work to be done to get this place up to fully functional again. All the posts need to be replaced, the paddock dug out from under the mountain of poop, and the lots of wood and pointy things to clean up as the snow melts. But, it sure is a beautiful piece of property.
The best part about this move is that there are fields and wooded trails surrounding the property, so Ava and I can go on trail rides at any time.
With moving houses, moving horses, getting hay, and trying to get pasture and stalls “horse proofed”, it’s been a very busy few weeks.
But now I am almost set to finally buy a new ride-able horse. Finally. I think. Maybe.
More on that to come.
