I have spent a lot of time on blog silence, much more than I would like because the last few months have been dedicated to:
1. Remodeling work in the barn
2. Traveling for work
3. Preparing our new house
4. Traveling for work
5. Packing and moving
6. Traveling for work
7. Settling into new house
8. Traveling for work.
Tonight was the first night I went out to the barn worked with horses and did chores since we moved in on the 15th. Slowly but surely things are coming together and I have even found the charger for the camera so I can start to take and post some pictures.
In other news:
1. Zapa is working on a new home. I have found a young woman who is interested in buying him and she is coming to work with him to make sure he is the right horse for her. I want her to come several times before she makes her decision, so I'll let you know how that goes.
2. Uriah got all A's! Yes, my honey is a super student and even earned a small scholarship for next term.
3. Marshall was hit by a car. AHHHHH. . . .It was horrible and happened last Saturday but he is going to be OK. He is now my Miracle Marshall with no broken bones, just lots of stitches and road rash. I am so grateful that he is OK. We still have a long way to travel, but I pray and kiss my baby several times a day.
4. I'm looking for my next horse. I want to lease a horse, so if you know of one I could care lease for six months to a year that is sensible, could do some dressage work and basically give me a lot of tutoring in trot and canter, let me know.
5. Parelli center here I come. Ok, I haven't paid for it yet so it isn't official, but I am going to take the Liberty and Horse Behavior course at the Colorado Parelli center this year. Yep, I want to kick start my path to being a professional learning facilitator (helping humans learn about horses).
6. Tonight I saw the stars. We have had rain, exhausted by the move, overwhelmed with Marshall's accident, floored by Christmas, but even though it was freezing tonight it was great to be on the farm with the milkyway glistening in the background and warm fuzzy horses munching hay in their stalls. Welcome home Jerri.
