On the fun side.. Ponys black Micklem that I ordered pre ginormous unpredicted car bill came and he looks pretty freaking handsome in it! Also notice the new (to him but basically brand new) pink LamiCell dressage pad that I got a few weeks ago off a tack site on FB for 25 bucks! Basically my horse is having a pretty awesome Christmas, besides the fact that he is stuck in a stall all day ha!
I feel so bad that he has been stall ridden for almost a month now and am at a loss as to what is going on. He is very mildly lame but it is still present when that leg is on the inside and especially around corners. Nothing major and pretty slight but still there none the less. I am SO frustrated and if it were not for wanting to keep my stall at the barn I would seriously consider turning him out for the winter. It is so hard for me to be 'wasting' our whole winter and feel like if we are not able to crack down soon there is no way early 2014 show season is going to happen. Basically I just need to stop throwing myself a pity party and move on :) SO ready for the new year and hoping that comes with some new luck because I could seriously use it!
