I haven't been posting too much as of late. Honestly, not a whole lot to say on the Digby front. We moved barns since my last update. I moved in the middle of February. Digby is doing SO MUCH better and I (so far!) love the barn and barn manager. She's been great about his care and my horse no longer looks 30 years old who's ribby with a poor coat and topline. The conformation photo below is from last week I believe. Not bad for Digby coming out of winter with no riding! I post often/daily in Instagram so that's probably best if you're looking for more regular updates. I can't promise that 75% of the feed isn't sunrises and baby photos though. Digby's real cute but even he's not newborn foal cute! :)
|Best confo shot we got that day... Ignore the dirt. He rolled the second we got into the ring to take photos.|
The hony and I have been hanging out mostly. I've been riding once a week. Generally, it goes well. Occasionally I get grumpy and angry that we can't really play. I'm trying very, very hard to just stay focused on NOT having an end goal riding wise.
|Wild mane makes Digby look like he has a bigger neck. I'll take it!|
|LITERALLY THE MOST PERFECT HORSE EVER. #saintsimon|
|I'd like to note that her mare is shorter than her gelding and she is still taller than me...|
All and all, it was super fun and I think wonderful experience for me to have a ride on something who didn't blink at anything. Hopefully we can do it again in the future! I expected to be super sore the next day but it wasn't bad. Whoo!
