Finally Some Air Time!

Levi
So the week went by and I got to ride a new pony. His name's Levi and he's pretty cool. I've only played with him twice but the text I got today looked something like this:


Guess I did good. :) I responded with this disturbing picture because 
I had no idea what a "magical unicorn donkey" looked like.


Disturbing yet... Perfect...


Psh... #NAILEDIT

Anyway, I had a few days of pet sitting off so I hung out with the bozo in the photograph below. Ugh, I miss cuddling with him while I'm away. And it's been so shitty winter-wonderlandish out that we've been stuck inside because kicking a soccer ball on the ice is NOT okay. And unfortunately, he's not allowed at HSF to run around the indoor. #fail


So what did I do before the crazy pet-stting began again?
I called out of work. I will admit, I was legitimately sick.
But honestly I could've gone to work and made it through.
I know I know... I'm terrible. But look at that face!


Also got myself a new water bottle in the mail. 
Amanda has a matching "Hunter Princess" one I got her for her birthday.


Brantley got a special visit from Mikhail who's been "away" at college.
Freshman, Engineer, Frat Boy, and a 3.X GPA?
I'm proud.



Then the B man got new kicks on all fours.

JR (Best farrier ever) mentioned about Brantley's... Energy level. And it wasn't him unable to stand still and such. It was more just his Early-Years Nervous Energy... Which brings me to my next part:

B and I are at HSF for the month!!!!


All my hard work with the HSF ponies has paid off and Brantley and I will be a part of the family until early May (right in time for the RISPCA ride that I'm praying we go to). They offered me the indoor stall for the month in exchange for playing with ponies. #winning (Today's a # day...)

Let me tell you. B friggin' throttled around the indoor on the end of the line. Obviously I put him on his long line and the only thing I asked was for direction changes both off the hind end and front end. Tail up, swapping leads, bucking, mini-rear with a head flip. He was ecstatic to finally book around an arena let alone a field. 


He went on and on until he finally came down to a nice, long, and stretchy trot. Pea-rolling with his nose to the ground. I honestly felt good enough to take him up and jump on buuuuttt... I didn't. We'll do more stuff between shifts tomorrow and I have the day off on Tuesday and I'm sure I'll have time to swing a leg over. Can't wait!


I'm back with these crazy mutts until next Saturday. And then I get a good long break and more pony time than I think I can handle. 

Psh. Lies. 

Now if only I could just not have to go to my real job tomorrow...

Cafepress.com! Maybe an idea for next year's Blogger Weekend?! It's a liter bottle too which is awesome.

I think this month of indoor work will do wonders for Brantley. I wish I had somewhere to take Charlie because I think he's kind of in the same place: bottled up with energy and nowhere to release it (plus he's just not in shape enough anymore for me to canter around in the ice/mud/whatever is out there and for him to not get hurt doing it). We've had a few really good days, though, so hopefully I can keep his brain in line and work him back up slowly without the indoor. P.S. Nice job getting the stall in exchange for working with some horses, and what a great message from Levi's mom!

I'm jealous of your halter and blanket rides though... Maybe next year for us. We still have a lot of work today. :)

Brantley & I would love to hear from you!
