Monograms and injured hands

This post will just be a jumble of random things going on that are horse related lately!

Firstly, I got helmet monograms. I hate to follow trends generally, but I really liked this one and couldn’t resist.

I’m not sure why the “g” looks lower case in these fonts. I did check on instagram and that is how the font is. Slightly funky on my IRH, but it’s a schooling helmet so I’m cool with a little funky!

In other news, Stampede tried to take my friend Rachel’s hand off (sorry again Rachel!). I asked her to feel his left front hoof he’s been off on (which is probably an abscess) for heat and he managed to gracefully put his right hoof ON his left hoof with her hand in the middle. I couldn’t make these things up people! Special horse here!

Picture of thankfully not broken hand!

Even though nothing has come out of Stampede’s hoof he appears sound trotting in hand now so I plan to hop on him Monday. Inevitably that will get the abscess moving again. Plus it should be a fun ride since he will have had two weeks off by then.

The C finals are going on at the barn this weekend so I don’t know where I will be riding P at yet, but he’s on my list for today!

And what better way to finish this post than a cute puppy!
