I did a video barn tour today that I'll post tomorrow night.

In the meantime, quick update. Today Cruizer got his legs clipped (with the AWESOME clippers that I won at state last year for volunteering) and man these clippers kick ass. They're Andis, can't remember which specific one right now though.

Afterwards Cruizer chillaxed in his stall while I worked a horse for the farrier. I was planning on riding but was too lazy to tack up so Cruizer and I just rode around bareback. I love how much he is maturing. He had been sitting in his stall for about an hour and a half, and I just took him out to the arena and hopped on..well climbed on. He's huge! We jogged around maybe 3 times and then started cantering. We cantered about twice around then did a simple lead change and cantered two more times around, then repeated for a total of 4 simple changes. After that we just wandered around on a draped rein. Cruizer was very happy and relaxed and was perfectly content with just loping around at minimal speed. I love him. As a treat he got a huge carrot and hand-grazed for fifteen minutes.


  1. I have a pair of small Andis clippers I adore.

    Read your lists below. It's always interesting to take stock of things along the way in our horse "careers."

  2. I can't wait to see the video. :)

    Don't you just love rides where everything goes perfectly?
