Better Late than Never

I spent the entire afternoon building Denali's fortress. She is now enclosed in a small turn out where she can not kill herself. Hopefully. I spent over an hour just hot taping the perimeter. My trainer offered to do it, but I got into it and really liked trying to figure out how to wire everything. It looks nice if I do say so myself! The only downfall is we did not have a fence tester. Before I re-did everything the fence would snap, crackle and pop. After I re-did everything it didn't make a single noise. I didn't think it was working. I was wrong. Ouch! :)

And without further ado, photos!!

"Do you see this!! Look at this! How does mom expect me to gallop ANYWHERE!"
Fort Denali

And since I've sucked in the photo posting area of my life....
From Into A. I chickened out Intro B and had my wonderful camera friend call it instead of taking pictures.

Sleepy Morgan! She let me come right up to her, and if I wanted to I could have just laid down and napped too. Denali won't have this at all, she'll jump up as soon as you come anywhere near her.

"What I did this summer." The morgan and I sort of excel at getting 3rd place. I think we have 7 or 8 of them! :) I laugh, everyone else sort of throws their ribbons on their stalls. I very carefully place mine and dust them off. HA! I'm re-living my life as a 12 year old!!

Oh! And my surgeon called me today. I have an extra navicular bone on my foot. It needs to come out, but he told me that if I can live with it then I can wait. I just need to schedule an appointment 2 months prior to when I plan on having the surgery. I'm thinking either February, or next fall. We'll see. Of course it hurts today, but I think that's because I've been thinking about it.

Happy Monday!

I'm totally jealous over your hot pink ribbons! LOL

Glad to see Miss D. has a wonderful new paddock to stay safe in.

I know! I saw those hot pink ribbons and went "Emma and I WANT!" Where do we need to go to get hot pink ribbons? LOL

I know right? I was so excited to get 5th place! lol. They probably make them bright pink so then you're not so sad to get one! I shouldn't ever complain. We usually always earn a ribbon, only one show did we really, really blow it so no ribbons :( The brightness of the third place ribbons with the black button in the middle is also amazing!!

Love the ribbon and the display of it! I would SO do the same thing! :)
Also...can I have your extra navicular bone and put it inside Laz's hoof? ;)
