was supposed to leave early today… but alas it wasn’t meant to be. Its’ my own fault - I stayed around and did some web work on the PW site. I have another site I am supposed to get started on as well. Then the day started slipping away when the vet was supposed to come out for a few horses. He was running late, but one of the horses (Matz, who I took to my first dressage show weeks ago) was being seen, so I wanted to stick around and see what he said. The vet multi-tasked between

can you tell I’m losing interest in blogging? especially every day. _______________________________________________ today Ami trotted under saddle in the indoor and then I took him out in the field.  He was good.  Jim thought I was brave for taking him since he hasn’t been under saddle that long.

yesterday I forgot to blog Ami’s progress. For the first time yesterday, I cantered Ami on the lunge line. I have been walking around on him, but would like to start to pick up the trot. J suggested that since he is cold-backed, that I canter him on the lunge first as to get the bucks out. yesterday, he was a maniac. he tries hard though to control it and not yank the lunge line out of my hand. I immediately pulled him down, cause he is not supposed to do anything that could strain any muscles

1. Why is this blog called Crystal and Cookie? Who is Cook? Cook is a mare I owned for several years that WAS, IS and always WILL be the absolute love of my life. She died in November. My heart will never be the same. 2. Why aren’t you working? Short answer: I don’t want to. Long Answer: I had a hard November. I had several personal problems, health problems, my job closed and then my horse died. It was more than I could mentally take, so I begged J and B for something to do… and
