Finals Week Photo

Although none of you are going to go through any sort of withdrawal if I don't post, I thought that for my own conscience's sake I should make at least one post to hold me over for the finals week. One less thing to worry about, right?

I didn't take this recently, but I just edited it while on a ten-minute study break (I'm on one now, too). It's Roca, another one of the farm horses. I usually don't ride him but I did twice last week. He was great the first time (right after this picture was taken) and slightly rotten the second time. He ran off once while still in the barn and put his leg through the reins, then when we went outside he trotted off again to go eat some grass. And this was with me pulling as hard as I could. And I'm not all that weak, either, so it just goes to show how strong horses really are--as well as how little of their strength they choose to use. He was fine both times and pretty good under saddle that day, too. He's fine with the egg-butt he has now under saddle, but if you're leading him with an egg-butt it just does not work. Which is why he always has a stud chain with his halter.

This is from when I was back in Austin over Thanksgiving. My kitty Veronica.

That's all for today! I'll have more over Christmas break if I have any time that I'm not skiing.
