oh and about the job…

Crystal & Cookie Archive on May 19, 2008, 1:03 am


I guess I didn’t make myself clear enough since people have their two cents to add… I’m not looking or expecting a job that is paid to ride.  I am not a professional nor do I claim to be. However, if I am going to get a job with horses, then it needs to have a benefit of being able to sit on something - on the clock or not - since my current horse is on stall rest.  Barn work is hard, back breaking work.  I would go work back in an office if there is no opportunity to ride.

now, I remember why he’s an ex…

Crystal & Cookie Archive on May 19, 2008, 12:54 am


:-) actually its not that bad. However, this got me today. The ex that has been coming around has a POS brother.  Always in trouble.  Always up to no good.  ex is always bailing brother out of said trouble. Ex calls me and complains about latest trouble with brother. I sigh and I’m like are you surprised!!?!?!  Hello. So then he gets defensive and slightly pissy at me because I’m like ‘uh.  yeah.  trouble.  always has, always will.’ So I’m like ‘look, what

should blog about Ami. I have decided he has to go back to being a real horse.  Since his fracture, I have mostly hand grazed him.  He’s not really supposed to hand walk for miles, but hand grazing is ok.  For the most part, he is pretty good, but a stall rested horse…  just starts to lose it.  I walked him into the indoor the other day and it was SCARY.  It’s hard when a 17.1 hand horse decides to lose it on you.  He has bolted and gotten away from me once, so I try and

had a pretty decent day. rode a few, came home at a decent hour. Still waiting to hear back from some folks before I tell everyone what I’m doing. Hope everyone else is doing well in Blogland. ___________________________________________ Oh I forgot to blog the other day that Lindsey and I went to see Cook.  She is buried on the farm, but it was the first time I went back there.  The day after she was buried, Aaron took me to show me, but I barely remembered.  I was in a fog and medicated.

I think there are changes on the horizon but I will know more by the end of the week. At least I feel mentally and emotionally prepared to handle whatever comes my way. I hope so, anyway. I’ll let everyone know something.

234 - Sunday -Back from show.

Crystal & Cookie Archive on May 11, 2008, 11:40 pm


I’m back from the show.  Things went well.  I’m especially proud of one mare.. who hung with all the boys.. .. only her 2nd show and she pulled a 77. Totally kicked ass. Another funny was how I messed up.  I took pictures of a horse and the flash was going off.  It was spooking the horse but I didn’t realize it… until J was motioning DURING THE TEST for me to QUIT IT.  LMAO. I apologized profusely.  He wanted to beat me. Headed to barn after coming home to see Ami.

Not only did Mariah and Nick Cannon get married way too quickly, but I read that they also did the cardinal sin that means it DEFINITELY won’t last. Tattoos of each others names. Ugh.

Braided 7 horses. Fingers are sore. Still loving the motorhome, since I took a 2 hour nap after the braiding. Can’t complain cause the horses behaved very well. Usually horse show food sucks. You live on Cheez-Its and fast food. But they have a track restaurant, which is so awesome. The pancakes were coated with butter. yummy. Then, went to the competitor’s party tonight. The buffet food was sooo good. Mom’s not feeling well, so I’m driving over to Fayetteville to visit. -

Made it to Pinehurst. No internet connection there. We’re staying in a pimp motorhome right next to the barn. I like it better than a hotel (except I have no internet). - Ghost-written by Eric

Today was the day from hell. I spent most of my day pissed off. What can I even begin to say? I just have no fight left in me.  I want to be left ALONE. There was a time in my life where I was asking for trouble.  Argumentative.   Borderline mean.  Usually I made out ok though. Now, after a period of extreme grief and depression, I’m so ANTI-fight.  I just want to be left alone.  I want to live in my little existence, cuddled with Birdie, going to the barn each day, working hard, head
