💙 jimmy 💙
jimmy was so incredible on thursday! and i couldn't be happier! we jumped a really fun course and it had a lot of elements to it that i was unfamiliar with, and i'm honestly so ecstatic that i rode pretty well despite there being a few aspects of the course that were more difficult than i was used to! and for once i don't mind my eq, so that's a plus! 😂 (also can i just say how happy i am that my leg over the red vertical on the center line stayed fairly still!!)
do you feel confident about your riding?
After being chained to the ground, for who knows how long, with little food and water, along with wounds and a belly full of worms, this sweet girl was rescued by days end farm horse rescue.🔗🐎⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
she came into my life when seeking a companion for our penny. almost immediately, we chose ikon, who quickly earned the name munchkin (or "munkin" as my nieces called her). 🐴 we were told she was about 16 and it was clear, she was terrified of humans. after we were approved to adopt and brought her home, she and penny were instant friends. it took a long time and a lot of treats to get her to trust us even a tiny bit.🍎🥕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
unfortunately, we lost penny in 2008 and while munchkin grieved the loss of her best friend, her will to live was strong. as she aged, she began to lose her sight and her ability to chew grass/hay, though she still made her way around the pasture, trying valiantly to graze.🍀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
the vet said that he believed she was close to 40 years old when she passed, which is very very old. i like to think that while she had a rough beginning, munchkin had more love, snacks and freedom than she ever could have imagined. she will always be in our hearts. 🌈💖🐴 rip munkin

du coup aujourd’hui je lui ai douché les balzanes, j’ai fait les tresses pour les pions et puis j’ai fait les cuirs. demain c’est notre premier concours donc j’espère que ça va bien se passer, je vous tiendrai au courant.
