A funny story, a picture and a project in the works

Yesterday I visited my horse for the first time in a week. Luckily I have an awesome friend who rode him for be all week. I brought some carrots and an apple. I went into my horse’s turnout which he shares with another horse. They’re quite hilarious and I know they’ll miss each other when I move Dexter home. Anyhow, I held out the apple for Dex and he wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. He took it from me and was rolling it around in his mouth. He finally rolled it towards his front teeth and Prinz tried to grab it from him. He finally bit it in half and Prinz gladly picked up the half that fell on the ground. Then they begged for carrots. I split what I had between the two of them and was able to take a carrot to my buddy Mars, the horse I rode before I got Dexter.

I’m also starting a project that so far isn’t going the best. Let me just say that spray painting is harder than I thought it was. I can’t seem to figure out how far away to hold the can, or get a very even coat. Hopefully it turns out okay. As for what I’m working on, I bought a blue pair of Equipe aluminum stirrups a few months back. I love the stirrups but not the blue. So they’re getting repainted. Or at least that’s the end goal. We’ll see how it works.

Update to come soon!

I had planned to ride tonight but it’s cold and rainy outside and I still feel like someone hit me in the head with a bat. Not sure what is wrong with me.
