Yuri's Question 2652 by AforAperture

Brilliant photo! Putting aside the cute factor, which is overwhelming, this is a well composed and technically beautiful image. The cla...

...Hey... it's April already...

March started off on a rough note. The historic deli at the end of our street (also the site of 12 apartments, one of which we thought about renting a few months ago) burned to the ground. Nobody was hurt, but it was a big event in our community, and definitely very scary.

Days later, there was a major explosion the the town we had just moved out of. An entire townhouse complex was leveled. Many people were hospitalized and a woman died. I knew a few people who lived there, but they were all unscathed.

Our streak of bad luck continued when Mike's S10 wouldn't start and wound up in the shop for repairs. 

The dogs were the highlight of our days, amusing us with their antics and providing excellent cuddles.

Stride Away Stables continued to fail at feeding Dancer. He dropped more weight and they refused to address my concerns. I moved him home with Ozzy and JR before he got to the point where he looked awful. Shortly after that, I cut ties with their barn entirely.

Our apartment continued to come together nicely. We are very happy living here and having the place brings us a lot of joy. We also get amazing sunrises here every morning.

In a surprising turn of events, I picked up ballet. My best friend has been taking classes just minutes from our new place, and invited me to come try. I'm not very good, but I'm having a lot of fun. It's nice to have something other than animals to think about for an hour every week!

I got to take Ozzy for our first trail ride of the year. It was brief and slow since the trails are basically a swamp right now, but it was lovely to be out. I'm looking forward to adventuring as the weather improves.

Tor came over with her puppy, Napoleon. He and Julio had a great play date. Herbie was not amused.

My client, Kristin, got to take her horse, Arrow, for his first real trail ride with her. She was thrilled and he was a very good boy!

My friend Jen's former horse, Gunner, who I was training a few months ago ended up at SRF and I helped her get him back.

Wink continued to make excellent progress in his lessons. We even jumped him 3' even though he's only 14.2hh and a draft!

Thankfully, the month ended on a better note than it started and my lessons are starting to pick back up. Here's hoping April brings good news!

Hey Dom!
Do you do the Ride for the Cure? The manager, was talking about it (met him at the Open Space Pace last year). We're trying to set up small sects and he's trying to get the horse park involved yadda yadda, didn't know if you knew about it or would bring Ozzy :)

If you are, I'd love to see you there ! :) Hopefully I'll be there with Arianna this year!

Much luck and good tidings-
Barrel-Chic

I always plan to do it, but don't always manage to get there. If it's at the Horse Park, I would definitely try to bring Ozzy (and JR!)
