YOU PLAY STARSTABLE TOO?! *types a person who is technically an adult*
Hahaha I’m an “adult” too, no worries. And I used to play more often, but now it’s just kind of a “well, the rest of the internet is boring today, time to play Star Stable!”
Okay well….I’m going to go play Star Stable and eat some homemade soup. Holla.
You could kinda tell last night that the previous two days Annie had had light flat rides because she was a wild woman last night. Not /bad/, but unfocused and more springy than usual. A little crowhoppy into the first of her canter transitions. It was bloody cold and getting dark by the time I got out to ride so she had a short ride last night too, but we ended it on a good note with a lovely, soft trot and a really relaxed trot-halt transition.
When I got out today I noticed that sometime between yesterday evening and 11:30am this morning she managed to half-twist off one of her hind shoes. It’s cool, she was due this week anyway, just bumped the farrier visit up a couple of days. She’s also sound, etc. Pulled the loose nails with some needle-nose pliers (I really need to invest in a farrier kit, ugh money) and the other nails were still super tight so I just shifted the shoe back to its normal place, vetrapped it on, and stuck her easyboot on over the top. She put in a nice flat ride today with some great canter in both direction and we called it a day because I didn’t want to push her with her foot and also didn’t want her to get feisty and buck and send her easyboot flying.
Farrier is coming out Tuesday to reshoe her, drill and tap and I’ll probably jump her Wednesday.
Thanks for the input! It’s just a basic design to get the shape out of my head so I can play with it more. It’s by no means something that will actually go on my body as is.
Just sitting here and realized my horse is schooling preliminary level dressage movements and even some intermediate level dressage movements (simple changes through the walk).
That’s pretty fucking awesome and I’m super excited about that.
Jumping the baby corner. :D She’s so cute! Photo is a little blurry, but idc look at her go!
bringing this back.
Shadbelly Giveaway !!
(plus a Hadfields bridle and two Baker sheets for the runners-up!)
Need a shad? Good, I’m giving mine away.
Grand Prix Shad size 10R (6R in American sizing)
I wear size 26 or 28 breeches, so use that as a guideline.
Classic black w/ canary points that reverse to tattersall. (I was wearing the points off my friends RJ shad in the pics b/c I lost mine [I have since found them]) but the grand prix points are kind of pointier…is pointier even a word?
I’m also throwing in my Beval stocktie (untied, naturally; pre-tied ones are so…..ick)
Shad worn only once, for a show 3 years ago…stock tie worn many a time, but still stark white and in wonderful condition.
Must be following me…duh.
1 reblog counts for one entry (likes do not count and reblogs are limited to 1 per blog [if you have multiple blogs, you can reblog once from each])
Entries close (lolz, “entries close”….horse show talk) on baby Jesus’ birthday.
On December 26th I’ll go through EACH reblog (I don’t care how many, I’ll take the time to look at every single one) and pick my favorite 50 blogs to enter in the drawing. (I like all types of tumblies, so if your blog isn’t 100% equine- no worries! I’m just as likely to pick you as I am to pick that blog littered w/ GIFs of sassy horses and “Holy shit, I NEED that pony” pictures.
one winner and two runners up will then be randomly selected using an advanced random selection generator… i.e. I write out all fifty blog names on pieces of paper and pick one winner and two runners up out of a hat.
- Runners up
If you didn’t win the super cool free shad and stock tie deal, do not fret my friends! There are also two prizes for you down here! And they’re wicked awesome too.
First runner up wins Colin ^_^
jk, he’s the only horse that puts up with my nonsense (because he’s too dumb to know any better) and I kinda need to keep him.
but forreal doe, first runner up wins a Hadfields bridle
horse size with raised fancy stitch browband and a fat hunter noseband.
Comes with raised fancy stitched laced reins and flat curb reins
(can be seen in all the pictures)
Used for 3 show seasons, but in lovely condition. Hadfields bridles can last a lifetime if cared for properly.
Second runner ^ wins a tartan plain AND an original plaid Baker Sheet! Yup, you heard me right, i’m giving you a double deal! You’re getting two for the price of NONE!….see what I did there?
Tartan-size 78 Original- size 80
Tartan one is Spic n’ Span and the original one has the cutest little permanent poop stain in the shape of a heart. (I was lying about it being cute)
You can see the original one modeled on Colin and Albany
You can see the top corner of the tartan one in the picture of Colin with a curly mane
Both are embroidered with my last name, you can bring it to an embroider and have them take it out if you want.
Winners will be announced on December 31st.
Dang guys. I can’t believe I have 500 followers! Thank you all so much, I’m glad you put up with me. Because, you know, I don’t reblog things, I don’t do promos, I basically mouth off all the time, etc.
Though I do try to be helpful and answer questions and share my trials and tribulations.
