Firstly, on Saturday, I’m going to a show with Cas (who’s barn name is actually Isaac, but YOLO) so that will take pretty much all day. It’s my first show of the year too, so I’m super excited wheeee :D I think I’ll be doing 2’6, since It’s my first show with Cas, and I’ve only done a couple 3’ jumps on him so far, but it’ll still be really fun. :D
Thennn on Sunday I’m trailering Patrick to the barn where I keep Cas, because we’re gonna board him there too. It’s just been really difficult to go back and forth between the two barns (they’re like, 40 minutes away from eachother) and I haven’t been able to see Patrick as much as I’d like to lately. So this is for the best, but I will really miss the barn he’s at now. It’s the only barn I’ve really boarded at until now, and we’ve been there for almost 6 years. So, I’m excited to move Patrick, but it’s still a little bittersweet.
Anyway, I will literally have no time for anything else this weekend lol, but that’s okay, it will be a fun few days ahaha, especially since Patrick is terrified of trailers :|
thanks for the submission! giveupthemachinegun
