3'3" for 33

I thought it might be a great idea to celebrate my 33rd birthday last Friday with some jumping- 3'3" to be specific. Better safe than sorry (given that we've only pushed that 3ft+ envelope once before)- bring on the grid!

Birthday Week

It's my birthday week (tomorrow is the official day) and since I'm obviously taking a vacation day to celebrate, my awesome coworkers surprised me with flowers and a cake! And Doughnuts. And Chipotle. I am going to need a forklift to get out of here!

A Case of the Mondays

Have we made it to Friday yet? Are we even close? 

I was going through some of my old photos and found this gem. I had thought that the only shot I had of the two of them involved Ellie giving some serious Mare Glare to Wilbur.

One of these things is not like the others....

This hoof is missing a shoe!

Pulled off in our Friday ride, just in time for the weekend of course. She tends to forge and we actually didn't realize the shoe had come off until after our ride!

Fortunately Ellie has solid Arabian hooves and our footing is soft- she didn't take a bad step but we kept things fairly low key this weekend with light rides.
Tacking the shoe back on Monday- we've got a show to prep for!
