Oh hello there. This is the home of my horse journey and whatever else I feel like blessing you poor souls with. Have fun, be safe, talk to strangers (especially if they give you candy), and always carry a knife.

Dusty and I had another stunner ride today.  We drilled transitions and him staying round until he was dead in the head.  But he was SOOOOOOOO willing today it had me beaming from ear to ear.  I tried to do a lot less with my hands today, to see if that would help the head tossing issue.  He was still kinda a potato in that regard, but he certainly didn’t do it as much as he has been.

Margie told me that I need to be more black and white in terms of training him.  He’s got his head up in the air like a giraffe?  Halt and get submission before walking and have no shame in doing that every 5 strides.  When he’s good for longer than that we can trot, and only from me lifting my back.  I need to have more confidence in his ability to hold himself, and I need to give him a bigger release.

I’m just so happy that this lesson was so much better than the last one.

It’s actually a good thing that the zombie apocalypse starts in Florida because then the zombies only have one way to go and that’s straight up into trigger happy redneck territory. I give it two weeks before monster trucks and mullets save us.

can we talk about how this is still getting notes

The funny thing is that i can not actually come up with a counter argument for this.

do you ever just look at your horse and get all tingly and happy because they’re just so adorable and stuff

and then the next day you want to punch them in the face

Or 5 seconds later

I can always count on my wee man to comfort me when I’m feeling down.

Dusty was such a super child for my ride today.  Two other horses in the ring and he was only slightly a space cadet.  He got almost all of his canter transitions and we did some lateral work.  He’s also getting super snappy off my leg and seat aids which is making me very happy.  Most times lately all I have to do is lift my back and he strikes off into trot.

After the ring work, we went out on the cross country course and tackled the big pony killer hill.  He was quite happy to be out in the open, just very content with all the sights and sounds.  He doesn’t even mind that he was literally right next to the Masspike.  He was just happy to be out on the highest point of the farm and to see everything.

He was just a super boy today and that made me super happy :)

Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.

look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon

And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.

And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.

So metal

This song is getting me through more trouble in the last two weeks then I can ever be thankful for.  Vortex’s voice in this song is absolutely beautiful.
