Sheesh, where have the last three weeks gone? I really don’t have great excuses for not being around these parts, other than all the things I want to talk about are Off Limits right now and I’m in this holding pattern of unshareable conversation.
There’s a few big changes afoot in this establishment. The first one is that Rosie is just about finished with her 6 months of training and is going to be heading back to her previous boarding stable as soon as they have an opening. My 30-day-notice has already been placed, and I’m just waiting for a corral. This decision didn’t come lightly — I do love the place she’s at right now. Unfortunately, due to finances, I’m not going to able to keep her in training anymore. I can basically only ride on the weekends, and at some point soon — I’ll have to be taking some time off from riding altogether. I’d rather have her be in a place where she can be in a huge pen. Her disposition was much calmer and better when she was at her last boarding facility, so I’m eager to get her relaxed and stretching out more. I am a bit concerned about her hooves though — the last time she was there it didn’t go so well. I am going to keep her on hoof supplements and farrier upkeep every 6 weeks and hopefully she’ll be okay.
The other decision we came to is that we’re not going to sell our house just yet, and instead are going to invest a bit of time & money into making the improvements we’ve been wanting to make. New windows, new bathroom vanity, finishing the 2nd bedroom, insulating the place better, painting some walls that need freshening up. Hopefully it will make us more eager to stick around here. We’re going to refinance and try to lower our payment a bit, so that will help things as well.
All in all, I’m good with things right now. I’ll talk more about stuff in a couple weeks. 🙂---------------
