Starting the year off with.......an affair!

Yes, you read it right. I am having an affair!

A horse affair that is.....
Let me explain. You all know Frankie is deep in boot camp right now and I am not getting the chance to ride him at all. Well, what is a girl to do? I went off and had an affair, with another horse. I truly am missing riding and Tank is not up to sloshing around the muck here at my house so I implored of Mike to find me something to ride. Being the gentleman that he is he set me up with a dandy of a horse. Actually I featured her here on my blog back when I was searching for a Harley replacement. This truly is an affair, I don't even know her name! She is the sorrel
mare that I liked but is a bear to shoe. Cute as a button and super fun to ride.
Mike is letting me ride her when I come down to visit Frankie. Frankie really doesn't know me well enough to feel cheated but I feel like a cheater. But, it is getting me in shape for when Cory decides it is my turn for boot camp.

What of Frankie? He is coming along well, although he has started to show signs of resisting being poked in the belly. He really does not think all this bridling and poking is necessary. He is graduating to a bit this week since he has the face set and is progressing so nicely. I have only been managing to see him once a week and I really miss him. The kiddos are finally back in school and that gives me a little more time now, but with him being an hour away it makes it tight to get down there and back in time to fetch the kids from school.

I am busy creating some new things in leather and have moved my website around to a new host so HOPEFULLY it will be up by weeks end with lots of goodies for you to see.

Happy trails....

Move the feet, control her brain. I bet with a little creativity, you can sort out the why's behind her aversion to having her legs handled, and can get her over it ;)

Kisses to Tank and the kids from me! Miss chatting with you!

You bad girl.....teehee !!

I think it is fine to ride another while Frankie is in training. Keeping you in shape while he is getting there. Still I know you are ready to get him home!!
