I never posted my year end wrap up in December (whoops) and now it's February (!) of 2016 (!!) already.

Here's what I've been up to:

2015 went out on an awful note when our good friend's younger sister passed away suddenly from a terrible allergic reaction. We are very close with the family and it's something I still can't wrap my head around.

Brooklyn has been in training and has been awesome. He accomplished a lot, from trail riding to jumping 3'3". I showed him to a few potential buyers and then actually sold him to a friend and role model in Maryland. Unfortunately, he failed his PPE two days later and we learned that he has an old, healed slab fracture in his right front knee. It doesn't change much other than the fact that I won't be jumping him as much, but it will probably make him harder to sell. In the mean time, I'm just enjoying having a riding horse of my own. We have been futzing around with dressage, and I've been having lots of people ride him. I even had Mike get on him.

I also did an evaluation on a mare who had been rescued from the auction by a friend of mine. Her identity ended up being a bit of a mystery and I spent a lot of time researching her tattoo and her background to find out who she is.

I am still working with Wink regularly, and I got Mike to take some pictures of us jumping during a recent lesson.

Mike and I spent some time exploring a local wildlife management area. We walked the dogs, sat by the river, and watched a bald eagle work on its nest.

We got hit hard with the Blizzard of 2016. We got nearly three feet of snow. Mike was out plowing for 30+ hours on his 30th birthday. The horses fared well, but taking care of them took a toll and I broke down crying in the snow on the long walk back from the pasture. It was the most snow we've seen in the state in 20 years and it was a tough one!

And that should catch us up for now. :)
