I learned my lesson during freshman year that being a barn bum and going to classes do not mix well. Well-planned pony visits that coincide nicely with class and studying schedules DO mix well :)
As for my summer, it has consisted of working between two to three jobs (cashcashcashcash), a craptastic relationship fail (ouchouchouchouch), discovering this thing called a social life (funfunfunfun), art projects (relaxing), and landing a pretty sweet gig helping JenJ out with her ponies that I absolutely ADORE right behind Greta ;)
So now, pictures of our EXCITING summer!
Here's one of her grazing! Actually, this was spring, but still...
Here's one of her giving me a funny face in the crossties.
She is pro at this trick. She should get paid she is so professional at it.
I did sit on her once or twice and walked around. I just couldn't help myself. No swelling or ouchniess afterwards either. Yay!
And then she got an abscess that quickly resolved itself...
...which meant I could use my handy dandy vet tech skills to make a pile of duct tape boots!
And her sitting pretty for grooming, per usual.
Oh, Lizzy has since moved to the big mare pasture and has attached herself to Greta's hip. Greta is being a good mommy and Lizzy is a very good citizen now on the ground, and I'm growing even MORE attached to the Lizzard. Dang it.
Oh, and SmartPak has a SMARTPURPLE plaid now! My prayers have been answered!
And the latest picture of me torturing my horse by putting sunglasses on her head. Pretty cool, huh? She's my
homie pony still. That new Lil Wayne song was stuck in my head and killing my brain cells. MY HOMIES STILL!
So, yeah, that's it. Actually, here's one more interesting thing I found this summer:
The sacrum of a rodent. Found in the hoof of Jen's pony, Saga. My inner biologist geeked when I saw this. Geeked. Out.
