|My sister made me join her on a painting lesson/night thing. |
As you maybe can tell, I was out of my element and
was pretty frustrated for the most part.
You see, I struggle with anxiety on a daily basis and things like death and the finality it involves do not bode well with me. I prefer to have a very calculated life, with structure and expectations clearly outlined. But sometimes, life isn't a straight shot into a basketball hoop.
To not prepare for something as final and gut-wrenching as death is ignorant at best, especially when there are many factors stacked against Suzie in this particular case (age, disease). But, in weighing out my options and how she is feeling each and every day, I can begin to plan and craft pieces together to make her life easier and comfortable.

Now that I have successfully upset not only myself, but a handful of friends who regularly visit and comment on this blog, I apologize on behalf of my awkward-potato-self.
Onto some happier, and much nicer subject matter!
Some of the photos from the wedding have finally surfaced (you may have noticed the one of me and Suzie in the previous post). Spud was hamming it up with the flower girl, who fell head over heels in love with him (who wouldn't?).
As the weather changes, both horses have been outfitted with some blankets. I found this particular photo hilarious, because they are seriously #twinning, right down to the cocked leg. Also yes, Spud wears a grazing muzzle like 24/7 because ponies literally get fat off of air. HOW.
Suzie, on a particularly good day, taking my nephew for a hand walk and ponying Spud. Being a responsible momma horse is hard work. My nephew had the right idea in carrying a box of Timbits with him. Snacking and riding - he's got it figured out.
A friend of mine let me know that a photo of Spud and I is featured in this month's "Saddle Up" magazine! The picture was snapped during one of our rounds at the BVX horse show. If that's not fame, I don't know what is.
Suzie looking sleepy after a particularly thorough and relaxing massage and kinsio taping session.
And for those who are interested; Suzie's knee before and after her taping session. Pretty amazing, huh?
I do have a few more exciting things, but that will be kept under wraps until I can get my greedy paws on them!
