Prepping for Chatt Hills

And I have so many things to do between now and then!

His new sheets and blankets came in yesterday :) They look very cute on him! I didn't realize how deep the Amigo T/O sheet is, but I think it will be good in the wind and rain. I promise we will do a fashion show, it was just really dark when I tried them on so the pictures look bad. I still need to pick up his Rambo stable sheet from the post office. Since I live at an apartment, the post office people think it is VERY unsafe to drop off my packages at my door. They probably know me by name now when I drive to the post office to get my large horsey packages.

Yesterday, Romeo was sound, sound, sound. Not one bit of creaky! Maybe the Polyglycan is really kicking in? While he was really sound...he wasn't particularly good dressage schooling. He was running through his downwards transitions which we worked so hard on this summer. Hopefully he will get to school 2 or 3 more times before dressage.

Romeo found this lovely part of the fence when I came to get him out of the pasture yesterday. He was probably thinking "Great! A pony sized fence!" and while I was thinking "OHH MY GOSHHH, GET YOUR HEAD AWAY! YOU ARE GOING TO SLICE OFF YOUR HEAD!" Needless to say he didn't, but that is just my luck before a horse show.

I really want to buy a small Stanley trunk! I might do that on the way to the post office today. Wheels just sound really nice right about now.


  1. We are totally on the same page. I am currently oogling stanley trunks online. Need $120 to do it, but that's reasonable and it would be incredibly nice.

  2. The good tack trunk size Stanley's are like $50-60 at Home Depot. Our entire barn uses them for traveling to shows (except one girl but she is annoying anyway...). I've seen some barns get trunk covers for them so they look like real trunks, which is cute.
