Last night Goodtimetoreview gave me a great idea to use an athletic sock as a tail bag. Great idea! I wish I didn't have a problem... I am anal. I am only anal about one thing, and that is my horse. It's sad really. Here are just a FEW examples of my issue... lets see if you can figure it out....
Figure it out? I'm obsessed with everything she has matching, not just matching, but red... I have no idea why? Maybe it's from all those years of unfulfilled horse obsession being repressed. If I have something and it's not red, it's because I couldn't find it in red and I'm currently trying to find a reason to buy it when I DO find it in red. If it's not red, then it's black. There are a few things I own that are not black or red (hot pink bell boots anyone?) I couldn't find them in red, and when I had her wearing them out in her pasture, I didn't want to try to find a lost black boot. I'm pretty sure the the men and women in the Space Station can see those boots! :) If you see a picture with something that isn't red, then it's not mine. I borrowed it (i.e. lunge rope)
I'm trying to overcome my obsession. Yesterday I bought some tail bags, two of them are not red, but they do have red accents. I also bought a pink one. I'm trying to get over it. :) I did buy a lunge whip that is red. I'm trying, I'm trying...
I do have a story! It's a crazy, crazy one that will give you stories to tell your other horse friends at the barn tonight, "Hey, do you read that blog about that crazy girl and her horse? You should check her blog out!" WAIT! Maybe that's why I have so many followers... Hummm (I think as I steeple my fingers, I know, I know You cant' be thinking about steepling your fingers AND be typing at the same time, humor me!)
I may have mentioned early on in this blog (and if you didn't read the whole thing from the beginning, you don't know this) that I named Denali "Lillian" the day I got her. She was so sweet and so calm. I wanted her to have a name that matched her personality. Well... Obviously THAT didn't work out!
I quickly realized that Lillian was a HORRIBLE name for her. She is definitely NOT a Lillian. I told my friend (here's where the crazy comes in) that I felt that her aura was red. Something about her spoke red to me. I felt that Lillian was a purple, blue, something cool. Denali was not a cool aura horse. It was definitely red. Then I went out seeking a name that would match a red aura. Beet was one of the top running names for a day or two. I know, I know, it's horrible! I decided that I wanted to name her after a mountain. Something large, beautiful, and peaceful. I then decided that I wanted to name her after the mountain in Alaska, because then HOPEFULLY my husband wouldn't kill me. I think it fits her, and I still see red when I think about her aura.
Don't worry, I'm not totally crazy (all the time.) I don't see the aura in people only horses, and not every horse.
