I’m feeling better about some things and I know Vlassic is!
We had a good night last night. He slept straight through the night next to me on the couch in the future in-law suite. It’s a comfy couch that makes a bed.
I did okay. There is apparently something living in a box that makes occasional noise, so I kept hearing it. I wish Vlassic were more of a vermin eliminator. He’s great at eating grasshoppers!
I’m glad I did this, though. He can run again today and isn’t shivery. He’s recovering.
But I made it through work just fine and even got out to ride Apache. It isn’t as hot as it was, so we both did fine.
We did well. He even came when I called! We practiced all our homework and even did leg yield. But best of all, we made it down the paddock and back with no meltdowns. I did it!! So did he, of course.
I think not only I am feeling better, but so are my dog and horse. We all feel safe with each other. I’ll sleep with Vlassic a few more days, so he will know this is his new home. It’s where his food is, and there’s a doggy door! And one day soon he’ll have his human buddy back!

I LOVE that photo of you with the gorgeous smile and pink sunglasses! And, this may sound odd, but I think you’re usually pretty covered up- I guess when you’re outside a lot you want to protect yourself from the sun — so I really noticed I could see your skin — your arms and neck. It’s all a great look for you! ❤

Well, you’re observant, Jen. This is the first year since I was a teenager that I’ve worn shorts, sleeveless tops, and bathing suits around other people. It turns out I’m more comfortable this way. I wear sunscreen but have some tan, anyway. I’m having fun in my body just like it is! At last!
I’m so glad to hear this!
