Travel Time

Won't have much to write about for the next couple of weeks as I'm in Italy! I've been here a week so far, one more week here than another week in Germany. I love it! Of course I miss the ponies, but they seem to be doing well based on all reports. Weird leaving them at this barn where I actually don't even know anyone that well. But they have my vet friend's number, who lives just down the road and my bf promised to visit them once a week for me. 

Of course I meant to post a nice little video I took of Misty right before I left, but then I deleted it accidentally in a sleepless haze. Bummer. I was planning on using that video for marketing her, as it was a bareback and, for half of it, a bridleless ride that went quite well after not riding her for an entire week. 

So you just get some pictures of poor neglected Jetta. She's still shedding, and looking quite homeless because of it, but before I left I gave her a good grooming, roached her mane again, trimmed her hooves and let her run around in the round pen. She's looking quite good right now minus the complete lack of muscle. I'm hoping now that my thesis is almost (almost!) so close to being completed, that I will FINALLY get to start riding her regularly again. I miss riding the stubborn brat! Good ponies sometimes get a little bit boring, sorry Misty. 

That's all I have to share for now. I'm hoping so have some kind of horsey content to write about when I get back. Currently plotting to find a tack shop of some sort, but we'll see. 

She's back to being at a good weight, I just wish she was muscled!

She can look kind of nice sometimes.

Gorgeous cathedral in Milan.


  1. Share more pics when you get bck~

  2. Have fun inEurope! I lived in Germany for two years, and my ancestors came to the states from Italy about 200 years ago. Even my first and last name is Italian. I hope you have a great trip!
