Jetta got new matchy bell boots that were on clearance. I love how ridiculously fluffy everything is:
Maisie also got some new boots - some incredibly shiny rose gold dressage boots:
Jetta officially turned 13 on April 5th so I got her some fun colored carrots with the very scary tops on them, but unfortunately didn't get as good a reaction as the first time I gifted her with whole carrots:
I also bought Jetta a pretty black Mattes pad to complete our all-black outfit:
Jetta also got the present of a grazing muzzle this year...
|She is not amused... also I put this on wrong, but I fixed it eventually|
|This pasture is amazing... just a little too much|

|She had a bit of a wave mouth - I definitely need to work on my photo skills!|
|So cute and drunk|
Patch, my first ever project horse, came up for sale again. This probably deserves its own post, but who knows if I'll ever get around to that. Basically, after training Patch and selling her, I lost contact with her owners and they ended up abandoning her at a boarding barn. She was sold to recoup board cost and I was contacted by her new owner. This lady was in love with Patch and said she'd never sell her - I even went and visited her. She was now called Scribbles. Years pass and then I randomly saw her for sale on Facebook from a new owner so I messaged him, provided all my old pictures of her, and asked to be given the contact info for whoever bought her. I have no idea what happened between the last lady that owned her and the current owners who had owned her for several years and seemed to have done a wonderful job exposing her to literally everything. Long story short, they told me someone in Utah was purchasing her and they gave the new owners my contact info. A few weeks later, I get a facebook message from a local lady who used to work in the lab at the vet school and she had purchased Scribbles (Patch) and was hoping to give her a forever home. What a rollercoaster ride. I really hope this poor horse has her forever home because she has changed hands so many times and she really is a great horse that deserves a forever home. I really wanted to buy her back as a babysitter/friend horse but I just didn't have the funds.
|She's very adorable|
|Acting like a big girl!|
|Trailer manners 100% installed|
Leading manners were however not fully installed. I made the mistake of putting her big girl halter on her because I thought it fit finally (it doesn't) instead of her rope halter and she apparently did not remember our discussions about personal space and proceeded to run me over. Twice. Luckily my friend had a stud chain so she was introduced to that and we had no more incidences.
|She does however stand fairly well for bathing now (grudgingly)|
|Yes, you should bite the tree when you're mad about life|
