Once again I disappeared off the map but this time for a very good reason. I took over managing the boarding stable I keep my horses at. It's my own little business and I rent the space from my neighbor. It helps me cut down the cost of keeping my own horses but its also a ton of work.
I want to change the format of my blog a bit to talk about what exciting things are going on around the barn but I'm also hoping to start writing stories again too.
Unfortunately, I lost December at the beginning of the year. Her kidneys were failing and I have no idea why. I made the best decision I could for her and had the vet put her down peacefully. This is the first time I've had to make this decision for any of my pets and I will never be the same. I miss her every day and I'm glad for the last year we had together and the wonderful relationship we developed.
Tax and I have been getting ready for a new show season and we're changing things up a little bit. Most of my boarders are low level eventers and we all enjoy riding together so I'm going to give it a shot. I've been taking dressage lessons with a wonderful trainer, Stacie Campuzano, and will be starting with a jumper trainer soon. I'm looking forward to an amazing year.
