I am almost 100% positive that this blog hop was made especially for me!
K over at Something to Talk About and I are good friends and I am new to blogging and blog hops so decided to use her idea as a test run to see if I could figure out how to do this. My understanding is that I missed out on the one Firn did of Everyday Wins so we’ll try this one instead! I swear, I am a decently intelligent person but sometimes the simplest things are stupidly difficult for me to figure out!
I don’t really have any of current horses I have been riding so we will start with my pride and joy, Ruby. I had to sell her right before moving to the East Coast and at some point I am sure I will do some posts about her because she really was my baby. She also had a marvelous sense of humor and was constantly getting herself into little spots of trouble and being weird (I think its why we got along so well…she made up for me not being weird at all….or something like that!)
I tried to get a nice couple of photos of Ruby before one of our last rides together. I was really having a hard time saying goodbye to her and I just wanted a couple normal pictures to remember her by. Instead I got this:
And this as well. Gee, thanks for that, Rubes.
Then of course there was this guy that I took to his first show. E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. goes into his mouth. Always.
Then this lovely photo of one of my trainer’s horses the night before an event. I had gotten him all braided nicely, there was a rainbow in the background….and he did this:
One of my trainer’s other horses thought it was a great day to be alive one morning at 6am when I was feeding:
And a few that I know Cathryn from That Red Mare will enjoy if she reads this. Dahlia, (apparently its a recurring name in my horse life) was a little rescue filly that I helped save 2 years ago along with 24 other horses from the same property. I stayed up all night within the first couple of days literally holding her up while she got IV fluids in the barn viewing room because she was so dehydrated. She and I really clicked then and she would come running every time she saw me, and of course, I was completely smitten with her as well! She, and Blossom, her half (more like 3/4 or 7/8) sister were fostered by my parents over the winter of 2014-2015 and were Ruby’s pasture mates during that time. She helped teach them how to communicate like real horses, it was really quite funny to watch.
And this picture of Dahlia is both adorable and so goofy to me. Its adorable simply because I was like a proud mother with her, she was practically perfect as far as I was concerned…but I also am aware that the picture is a little bit laugh inducing and goofy to look at.
Can’t wait to see everyone else’s funny horse pictures!
