Enough people have asked whether I'm still alive (I am!) that I figured I'd better get off my sorry butt and actually post to reassure everyone that everyone at Wyvern Oaks is OK. Truly, I never intended to take a three-month blogging hiatus, but it's been the strangest thing - I just haven't felt like blogging. At all. It's not that I don't have anything to say. It's not even that I don't have time. It's just that I haven't really been driven to sit down and write. For three months. Whoops.
Let's go with the reader's digest version of what's happened since I last posted:
- Cash and Red are doing great. Red continues to be put out by what he considers "boring" rides to keep others company, but Cash is happy to go on his weekly short hacks.
- Paddy is coming back from a soft tissue injury in his RF that happened about three months ago. We're up to trotting 20 minutes daily on a hard surface in straight lines, and this week we get to add big circles and smooth corners. I. Am. So. Bored. Those of you who have rehabbed s/t injuries will know my pain.
- Paddy's new custom saddle and bridle arrived and they are AWESOMESAUCE. Let me just say that having a saddle custom fitted to your pelvis and leg, not to mention your horse's back and girth spot, is the best thing ever. I have never felt so solid and secure, and NOT been fighting my tack. So nice!
- I pimped out some fly bonnets for Connor over at Cob Jockey and Ramone over at Viva Carlos. Bling EVERYWHERE!!!
- Hubby and I went to Australia for a jousting tournament, and while I was there, I got to meet Alicia and Romany over at The Young Horse Experience. She took us on an amazing trail ride through the Australian bush, and let me just say that Rommey is the CUTEST THING EVAR. Also, he's very large when you're used to a Haffie. ;)
As for blogging... I think I'm back! I've missed you guys!
Consider this a drive-by post. More details to come...
