The deed is done. Papers are signed and money has been sent (cringe). But the really exciting result is that this year The Boy and I get to shout "HAPPY NEW MARE!!!!!" at each other and then kiss. (aw).
I'm so glad that he's as excited about this as I am. Although he did point out that it's very likely that it will be impossible to fit our two (two!!) mares in one (uno) three-horse trailer. I'm not sure where the fail is, but that's some messed up math. (god bless him for enjoying us, (ahem) athletically built ladies)
So there you have it. I'm very much looking forward to what 2012 has to offer. P is growing and tackling new challenges, and Prairie will have her own goals to be set. The thought of having them both under the same roof eventually is thrilling and hopefully one thing we get to see in the coming year.
The Boy and I are off for the holiday weekend to visit some friends and spend NYE at a bull riding event (YAHOO). I can guarantee that our drive home on Monday will be by way of Prairie's barn for a nose pat and hopefully a ride. Then, Wednesday is a trip to see Queen P!
Now to try and work for the next few hours and not spend hours amassing new toys and treats and boots and bits for the mare....
