March 25th Show Pics

As promised, here are some of my favorite pictures from last week’s show (which went really well, by the way; a couple of minor oopses but overall I’m very pleased with how we did). Enjoy! 🙂

And on that note, we’re done (for now). See you next time! 🙂

Yes, you read that right. I spent three weeks in the States last month and the camera was largely forgotten during most of that time. To be fair, I was having too much fun with various friends and family members to take very many pictures. Living in the moment and all that (I’m not always good at it, so actually this is a good thing).

I spent most of my visit at BJ’s, getting “kidnapped” by her family almost every day (not that I was complaining) for Starbucks, shopping, and silliness. There is never a dull moment with this crew, let me tell you. 🙂

When I was not out and about, I was making friends with BJ and Mike’s pets, including this very photogenic (and ironically somewhat camera-shy) lady:

Her name is Pooka and yes, she really is as soft and fluffy as she looks.

I also got to spend a few days in Charlottesville with my aunt, uncle, and cousins. Naturally, there were some shenanigans as well:

I even managed to go back to Fredericksburg one Sunday and meet up with some old friends there.

And of course I made sure to indulge my geeky side: I was able to see Black Panther opening weekend (fantastic movie, by the way), plus I picked up a few fun odds and ends like this guy:

Yes, that is an Ant-Man keychain. I couldn’t resist.

So, that’s basically my vacation in a nutshell. There was also the usual trip out to Triple-R where I got to be barn staff again for a day, which was fun.

I’ve been back home again for a month now and not too much has been going on, aside from starting up the job hunting process (yippee). I do have a jumping show coming up on Sunday, though, so at the very least I’ll have some new pictures to share soon.

January 2018 Show Pics

Last month I participated in my first jumping competition of the year and overall it went pretty well. This was my second official jumping show with Couelita, my new project horse (Blue sadly had to be re-homed due to an injury last year), and while we didn’t place in either of our classes, we didn’t have any major mistakes, so I’m calling it a win. 🙂

The lighting wasn’t great, so I didn’t get very many good shots, but a few turned out nice:

Spotted these guys in Cardiff Bay:

These are from a hike Sandrine and I took in the mountains near her house:

Last July, I went to visit Sandrine for a few days, and one of the first things we did was visit the Doctor Who Experience (I was determined to go before it closed two months later). Just like last time, I got very shutter-happy, much to my sister’s amusement.

A few of my favorite shots:

Happy Mew Year!

Hope 2018 has been meow-velous so far. More to come soon! 🙂

Meet Meknes!

Mid-May, we had a new addition to the barn family:DSC_1439csDSC_1442csDSC_1447cs

Isn’t he cute?

He’s also very friendly and loves being petted:DSC_1451csDSC_1459cs

These are actually from a couple of months ago; he’s gotten bigger and darker since then. He is going to be one handsome boy when he grows up. 🙂
