Quick Update: March 4

Hello blog world.

I'm finally starting to feel better. Just battling an annoying cough on and off. This week is spring break but it may as well be winter break with the temperatures  That being said I still haven't had a chance to ride with sick, temperatures and a family medical emergency that's still leaving me making almost daily trips to the hospital.

I did manage to snap a photo of Echo Saturday when I was out feeding. 

Today Echo's pasture-mate had a colic episode and had to be tubed for an impaction. Things are looking great with him though! Since the vet was out, we decided to have him pull blood for coggins. Took total advantage of the barn owner paying for the farm call!

In Dakota news he is now breaking into Echo's field on a daily basis and we've pretty much decided to just let him be over with the horses he actually likes.

I ordered patterns to make my own dressage show coat. Being a 2 horse owner with no job is leaving my pocket of money rather empty so I need to find shortcuts to make showing a possibility. Between my grandma and barn owner, I think we'll be able to make one for about $40! GLASS-Ed membership has been sent in for showing. I nominated both Echo and Dakota in the year end award division for walk / trot equitation class they offer and the Intro Level 1st Year Rider awards. Which means I definitely need to commit to 3 shows to make it worthwhile. Fingers crossed. Also means I gotta get on mareface if there's any chance of her getting points!

My Wintec Isabel is on it's way to me as well! Can't wait to take it for a spin.

Random pic of my senior high school pictures taken with Dakota. My grandma had it laying around this weekend when I was at their house.


  1. YAY I can't wait for you to start showing your beasties!

  2. Looking forward to reading all about your show prep and of course the days themselves when you get out.
    Hope all goes well with making the jacket - wishing you well wear for both the jacket & the saddle when it arrives.

    Glad to hear that you are on the road to recovery - hope you're back in tip top shape in no time! :D
