Well, things have been a little hectic around here, which would be why I haven't posted much. Spring/summer, lots to do, lots to take care of.
I did get a new horse and a new trailer this week, even though I couldn't really afford them, I couldn't really afford to turn the deal down either. A good horse (E's horse, Rebel) and a decent trailer for less than two grand... just too good to pass up. The trailer needs a little work, but other than putting some plate in behind the ramp latches, and adjusting the latches themselves, it's pretty much cosmetic and organizational.
Other than that, I believe I may have found my internship (FINALLY!) and a job all in one, with a little luck. The cutting horse trainer north of here is needing some help, and I would love, love LOVE to have the opportunity to learn from him. E took me out yesterday (he used to work for the guy) and introduced me, and the timing seems to be good. Waiting for the phone to ring, crossing my fingers.
If I'm working with him I won't be able to ride Legs and Red out the way I had planned for the sale, but I can take a couple months of riding on days off, and accomplish the same thing, I hope. The internship and job are more important, though, by a long shot. I can always list those two on craigslist and hope for the best.
Again, sorry for the dearth of posts, I have a few percolating, but finding the time and motivation together to get them onto the screen is a challenge lately, as my brain has been going a million miles an hour with real world stuff. Hopefully the muse will return from her summer vacation soon, and things will go back to normal around here.
