The Idea of Order

There's so much here that I'm not even sure what the most significant thing is to aim my snarkiness at -- The coddled nature of our beasts? The time and money sink that they inevitably are? The fact that most equestrians would likely bleed out before seeing a doctor but if Dobbin has a hang nail they call the vet, the farrier, and a priest to fix it?. ;) We're certainly a...dedicated bunch! :D
Equestrians are some of the most determined, resourceful, stubborn, tough, strong, stubborn, persistent, and did I say stubborn(??) people imaginable. We may skip parties, graduation ceremonies, vacations, and even be late for our own weddings but come hell or high water nothing short of death is going to keep us out of the saddle. ;) (Even if perhaps we should...)
On horses and between seasons. While I am incredibly relieved that spring is on the way and there's an end in sight to the cold misery that is winter, I could seriously do without the mud, snud, and hair. I'm also hating these last minute storms winter is tossing at me in one final attempt at ruining my life. ;) Ah well, soon enough it will be over 100. :D
That is not ok. To be honest, I am never on board with snow, regardless of the time of year. It's just a NOPE. But there are some who seem able to tolerate its awfulness providing it occurs over the holidays. I've yet to meet many who love it once they've been given a taste of spring and the ability to dress in under 45 layers without freezing to death.
I'll likely still be that fabulously unorganized, perpetually late, horse-obsessed, perfectionist ball of utter chaos you've all come to know and love. ;) You're welcome. And thank YOU all for your support and acceptance of my crazy. :D People say it's not the destination, it's the journey that matters. That seems especially true in the horse world. And so with that in mind, I hope you all enjoy each moment of the adventure to come in 2018.
If you're like me, you were ready to get the tree and 87,000 lights up and going after dinner on Thanksgiving. ;) I refrained, though mostly out of sheer laziness rather than any sense of propriety. Now though, anything Christmas is fair game; even harassing your animals with those fun filled holiday photo shoots. :D
