To be honest, this is not my favorite outfit. I originally had a different jacket and shoes with this blouse and I switched them out right before we left those house which ended up being a mistake. (So much cuter with the denim jacket.) At least it was an easy outfit to move around in with the loafers and the little bit longer skirt, I ended up not really needing a jacket for most of the day. Oh yeah, fifty degrees is minimal clothing weather.
We were going to clip the pony yesterday but the clippers has a very small piece that was broken so Merrylegs lucked out and only got a bath. Oh, he was such a monster! We had the big tub all filled up with warm water and while we were filling it he jumped right on in and got himself so wet but as soon as we started washing him, he wanted none of it. (I'm pretty sure he'd never had a bath before we got him.) He was so angry after having his bath, he wouldn't talk or look at mom and I aside from giving us the stink eye. He's such a pony.
It ended up being a fun day though, lots of cleaning and playing outside and I rode Dollar around and did some bareback jumping. I'm really excited to do some cross country jumping with him this summer, he's the first horse we've had in a long time that I feel comfortable enough to race through the woods and jump logs with. The Yukon mustang in him makes him crazy steady on his feet, he's just the smoothest jumper, has no fear of the jumps and is pretty scopey about the jumps. I'm pretty pumped up for it and the kids have been having the best time riding Merrylegs, it's going to be fun riding the two horses together.
