My new girl officially has lyme.

She had been acting a bit "off". No lameness, but a bit of a sore back leading to lots of bucking when saddled. I'm not surprised though, as I did get her out of CT. We went through a terrible case with our yellow lab two summers ago. Really thought we might lose him. At least now I know more about lyme than I ever wanted to know. It's crazy.

At least she's making friends.

While I'm waiting for more tack supplies to come in I've started work on a couple more projects. So next on the list I'll have a dressage saddle and a fancy western show saddle. I've got new supplies for the western saddle that I'm pretty excited about and a couple of new techniques to try, but you'll just have to wait and see. :)

You could say I've been a bit, uh… distracted.

I totally need to start a new blog for this, however for now I'll hijack this one and post here. I mean really after the novelty wears off, am I still going to want to write about her every five mins? Well, maybe :)

Here she is. I've officially had her for a week, and I think I finally have a name.


She came with the name 'Spirit', but let's just say that doesn't roll off the tongue very easily. She's supper sensitive but very kind and eager to please. Check out the white on the tips of her ears. So cute.

Can you tell I have a thing for spots?

My sweatshirt smells like horses. And hay. Oh, how I've missed that.
