I finally made it home this past weekend and had a nice visit with my husband, G. Since I grew up without TV, there are tons of movies I've never seen and every once in a while we hide out and catch up on some of them, usually cheesy 80's stuff. This weekend it was Top Gun, Ladyhawke,and one called War Games I found much more amusing than I probably should have. Honestly, I suspect I found them all much more hilarious than was likely intended. The music in Top Gun and Ladyhawke in particular, oh my ;) At least there were some pretty horses!
Midge went out Christmas caroling with her favorite barn kid, which sounds like it was fun, but I was happy to be inside and warm at home. I'm kind of a grinch. I'd post pictures, but see above about dark and rainy - you can see her little blaze and some other shadowy horses and that's about it! Ginger had her favorite barn kids riding her all weekend too, but I think had less fun, even pony boot camp being boot camp and all. She whinnies to me every day, I think in hopes I will keep her and take her back to her favorite farm, but I'm holding strong and trying not to feel too sorry for poor drama mare, lol. In all seriousness though, she's settling in and has a few regular riders loving on her and keeping her occupied.
The more relaxed frame of mind I've been in lately snuck into my barn time last night. Being serious and focused just wasn't happening. Mentally I am remaining on vacation and anticipating my upcoming week off. Next year I am just going to book this week off, nothing is getting done (beyond me eating copious amounts of holiday chocolate) anyhow.

|Midge's first (and I suspect last) clip thanks to EC. Apparently pony has super thick, non fluffy, swirly pony hair that isn't much fun to clip. Who'd have guessed?|
|Rogue photo app at it again, although the sparkly superstar thing suited for tonight. I should delete the app because it's been taking over my camera and photos, but phone is nearly dead and I'm kind of enjoying the random stuff I find.|
