Pony excitement... and stress

Why have I not been blogging lately, you ask? Well. School continues to kick my butt, and I am so happy that I decided to forgo summer classes. I need a break, it's just absolutely stressing me out.

Also, the much awaited Rocket the pony arrived on February 13th. He is as adorable and loving as described, and we are all in love. Unfortunately, Rocket has some pretty serious hoof issues and needs some vet stuff done. Luckily, his last owner is super womderful and is dealing with most of that. I feel bad for her, owning a horse and being in college several states away is not an easy thing. Anyway, I have been spending the spare time I should have been blogging on horsey time. Cleaning stall, soaking hooves, reading up on White Line Disease. It's so nice to have a horse again, I really missed Lucy a lot- still do, in fact. It really helps my sanity to have stall cleaning, horse grooming, quiet time for a part of each day.

Rocket will be heading out to Greensboro for a second farrier opinion, then to the vet later next week for xrays of his hooves and to have his dental stuff done. He'll be good as new in no time. Or maybe a little time. Either way, he'll be good as new. I loooooooove him, he is such a silly character. This is what he does with his water buckets when he gets bored and it's warmish outside...

As a result, Rocket will be getting his very own plastic kiddie pool, in hopes that he will splash in that and not in his drinking water!

Also, next week my friend from Australia is coming!!! I am soooo excited, she's a horse person too and it's going to be a ton of fun. There will be pictures, and blogging to go with that visit, I promise.

So, in conclusion, sorry for my lack of blogging these days. Life is so crazy, and I hate to feel like blogging is a chore, and not something enjoyable for me to do. But, as I will not be doing classes this summer, I implore you to stick around and not un-bookmark me yet- the old daily blog post will be coming back. I promise. Really. Now, go look at the cute pony video.
