A good seat is a lifelong investment. It is a possession that cannot be lost. -Kurd Albrecht von ZiegnerI have discovered the fountain of youth. It is here in Okinawa. There is a reason people here are among the longest lived in the world. It is because time simply moves so slowly that I'm pretty sure it is literally standing still for long periods. Seriously, I know some of you are like wow, it's mid-January already! Over here it has been January for so long it feels like it should be March by now at least if not April. Weekends are the hardest. This whole day feels like it has lasted as long as a week.
My determination and mood have been ping-ponging about so much I'm about to have whip-lash. I seriously am not sure how I'm going to make it for 5 more months.
I did watch the 2013 Nespresso Battle of the Sexes on the USEF Network today. I was pleasantly surprised by a good internet connection. Horse Junkies United had an online chat session while it was playing and it was a lot of fun. Now that I know I might be able to watch some of the USEF videos I am going to try and go back and watch some of the George Morris Training sessions. Yay something to look forward to!
My sister did send me some photos of Loki-man yesterday. He is super skinny again and we are looking into what else we can do to help him gain some weight. The major culprit right now seems to be the poor hay quality (along with the severely oscillating temperatures). I know we aren't the only ones feeling the painful effects of the drought last summer. Loki will be getting some additional alfalfa pellets and/or beet pulp in his grain and I think I might add something to prevent/treat ulcers as well. Mindee did say that he looked healthy otherwise and was very sweet as usual.
