Mental Health - I Mean Grooming - Session

Today at 7am is the first of two cutovers over the next week for our new phone system.  It's definitely the most complex and challenging thing I've ever done.  I find it fun, it will be so awesome when it's in, but it doesn't change the fact that it's mentally and physically exhausting.  I did not feel mentally up to riding, but I did want to see my horse last night.  


He got a good grooming, and his 100g liner added to his sheet since it got down to 34 last night.  To be honest, he runs so hot he probably didn't need it, but for everyone's peace of mind I added it anyway.  

Drove 80 miles to watch him eat dinner...totally worth it.

Some weeks you ride the horse, other weeks you work the job that pays for the horse.  Luckily I love both, so it all works out.

    1. So far, it's going as well as could be hoped. The other half of the organization goes next week.

  2. It's one big balancing act. When I get stuck at work I just try to remind myself "work pays for pony", usually it makes me feel better.

    1. 80 miles roundtrip - 40 miles one way. Agreed on grooming.

  7. You are so right ! I am lucky that I am close enough to see Rory everyday- so we have at least three days a week of just time together no riding- but I also know what you mean about the mental health day!
    Sometimes my brain is so exhausted that riding would be a BIG mistake:)
