Bad horse owner!

Two things that I should NEVER EVER be allowed to have in my possession at the same time.

1. Denali
2. Scissors

Remember my post about how I butchered her hair at the beginning of summer? Everyone gave me great ideas and I went out and bough thinning shears and a thinning blade. Do you think I took those out yesterday? Nope. Went straight for the Ikea scissors.


It's a mohawk now!! Well...not that bad, but close! Her trainer told me it was cute, but I think that was just her trying to make me feel better!! I'll post pictures when I have enough guts to take one and admit my mistake.

In other non-horse hair butchering news, had a great ride on Denali. Her trainer had me do the introduction Dressage test and it went really well I thought! Our 20 meter circle was a bit flat and not as big as it should be, but I was proud of her/me.

Next week is there is a Dressage show that I'm thinking of taking Denali to, not to compete, just to watch!

Hope that everyone is having a great week! I'm really depressed that summer is almost over (I'm a teacher so I have to go back to the kiddos in a week and half.) I know, I know, at least I have the summer off.

What are you looking forward to in the fall? Give me some hope!! :)

Horse shows are fun! I've taken Izzy to several just to look around, so the first time we actually "competed", it wasn't too stressful.

Good things about fall:

cooler weather

Yeah, that's all I can think of. I have one semester of college left, so I definitely understand not wanting summer to end.

Cooler Weather! That is very true!! It was 90 here today and that was no fun for either of us!

Definitly have to agree on the cooler weather. And lower humidity. Less bugs!

I can't wait for apple picking with the kids. We make and can our own apple sauce and apple butter. We've been harvesting from our garden most of the summer, but now a lot of things are comming in- tomatoes, peppers, herbs, potatoes, carrots, etc...
I'm at a canning frenzy!

I'd like to get Sean to a show, but since I haven't been able to ride much, it's not a good idea.

Her mane can't be that bad. You did a nice job last time. Besides, don't worry. Manes grow back.

Word varification (how appropriate):hothed

you're going to have to start calling her Denali the Greek.
