Hilarious


So if you're on Facebook and "like" Smartpak then you may or may not know that they are having a contest, "What were you thinking when you wore THAT to the barn?" The winner gets something... I don't quite remember what it is, but yesterday I figured what the hell, I'd include this photo of my 5 year old self (Note: Things haven't gotten much better, but now I wear a helmet and boots.)

I woke up today and found out I'm a finalist! I'm pretty excited, but this means I will probably drive you crazy next week when they have the actual voting. It amazes me that my parents would let me on a horse when I was little without a helmet. About .3 seconds after my parents gave me the reins to this little guy, he took off at a dead gallop into the woods. I don't remember it happening, because I was 5, but I do remember turning him around and coming back out of the woods with him. I started riding lessons not too soon after (always with a helmet.)

Also, Denali must have gotten a cell phone!! :) She sent me a text message last night and a picture of herself. The caretaker may have hurt my feelings, but I love that she's sending me pictures of my babypie.

Ditto exactly what Marissa said. I chuckled when I saw the picture and the laughed out loud when I read your blog this afternoon. Small world indeed.
Constant follower, rare poster, I was so thrilled when I read Denali wasn't being put down, I was in tears as I was reading your ordeal each day leading up to your Thanksgiving miracle. Here's another supporter for you, and I will be voting for you!

You better bug us to vote!! I definitely will but I have a poor memory so I'm expecting reminders every single day when you post! I will do my best to help you win. :)

I was watching an old episode of Verminators today, and they mentioned that rats can carry Trichinosis, which can cause coordination Issues in horses. Has Denali been checked for that yet?

No, but I'll ask her vet. Good question.
