Pretty Girl Photo Dump

The promised photos! All taken by an extremely talented junior at our barn- you should totally check out her Instagram @hgielloh, she posts awesome pics of her and her hunky gelding doing the big eq and super cool shows.

I know I should do what Lauren at She Moved to Texas does and use these photos in my blog posts….but I have absolutely no self control and must share them with you all at once.

Wordless Wednesday- She heard me.

addy_muddiest_ever
Taken yesterday, approximately three hours after I posted my “How to Groom Your Gray Horse” instructions. I don’t know how well you can see, but she was absolutely crusted with mud from nose to tail. I’m registering her as a dun from now on.

Wordless Wednesday- Mud Monster

I know, this looks super similar to last week’s post. We do live on these crossties.

But while my enthusiasm and yearning for spring knows no bounds, it is different when you’re responsible for a gray horse. Notice the mud stockings and mud neck adornment. It’ll be interesting when the blankets come off and she turns into a complete mud creature.

Lord give me strength.

PS- How cute is that face? I just want to squish her nose and give her kisses. Sweetest girl in the world.

De-nial Isn’t Just a River in Egypt

It’s now officially been a week since I’ve been on a horse due to the snow and cold, so I’m going to escape from reality and look at these pictures of warm activities throughout the years.

Standing next to a gigantic flower and being SO ENTIRELY WARM.

I’m going to go think warm thoughts and pretend that I’m not wearing two sweatshirts just to stay somewhat warm.
