So I was really delighted to grab a coffee tonight with Devon, a friend from my Blackhound days. I'm sure we would have gotten together eventually but the date was spurred on by the brand new horse she recently bought!
Barn Buddies come in all shapes and sizes, old and young, all at different places in their lives. I appreciate my friendship with Devon so much because we're so similar. Both married but without kids, both with husbands who marginally support our horse habits (meaning they love us- not necessarily our horses), we're both working hard at developing our careers, and of course- we're finally horse owners!
We had such fun chatting about barn happenings, the challenges of sneaking out of work early to go to the Menlo show, and of cutting back on our coffee shop addictions to help scrimp towards show budgets (as if).
Can't wait to make a stop by Blackhound next week to meet Sophie!
