Wow, wow, wow, I am so excited for this scrapbook! Your facilities are incredible, I can't wait to see more. Delani HX is seriously the cutest! Foxglove's Eden seriously has me drooling, look at that trot! If that mare ever goes missing I am telling you I am completely innocent
I really appreciate the layout of your little farm. There's something to be said for quaint facilities that pull off that realistically small vibe. Cute sims and horses too! I'll have to stalk this album.

"Mourning" Routine 23-2-2020
Tfw you're sad because you're hubby is out of town and you still have to do your job.
Like I said in the last update, no Burt. He’s in London. So right now it’s just Walt and I. So, what better time to do a crappy morning routine blog when we’re down one hand. (And no, that’s not a joke about Walt’s arm. That's so rude smh.)
Getting out of bed is miraculously a lot easier without Burt as I have to essentially drag him out of bed. Without Burt, I just flop out of bed. Alone. Without Burt. I throw on some shoes and go wake up Walt who is usually already awake and outside as they don’t have a concept of a reasonable sleep schedule. Walt usually throws on a jumper or two before we head out to give our ponies breakfast.
Usually, Burt does one half of the stables, I do the other, and Walt does the two boxes outside. Rather, this morning I was hurrying around all nine boxes inside while Walt did the two boxes where their two black tobianos are. It’s usually pretty easy to feed four or five horses without them all going mad, but according to our horses I’m too slow to feed all nine of them. Robin was just yelling at me because everyone else was yelling. Robin gets fed first…. Murphey and Ghost were all happily eating in their boxes as I got the last grain buckets dished out. Yeah… feeding the ponies is not my strong suit. Measuring out all the feed they need? So bad at that. ~
Walt was already leading out Ghost with Murphey plodding along behind them. Murph knows where to go, Ghost… not so much. I had to wait a little longer to start turning out the rest of the goobers while Walt got their boys out. Walt was gracious enough to help me out a bit getting all the big horses out into their paddocks. Jabask was a bit grumpy because it was his morning in the small turn out with Robbie got the big pasture to himself. Which made it all the more difficult to get the mares out because we were dumb and turned out Jabask first. If Burt was here… we would’ve gotten the far paddocks where the mares go first since I’m dumb. But eventually we got everyone out in their fields without anything catastrophic happening. ~
~ Needless to say, we're down about 20 braincells when Burts gone. The mornings are messy and chaotic when you leave two dumbasses like Waly and I to take care of 11 horses when we're sleepy. You'd think after doing this for a few years I'd have adapted to doing work bright and early but apparently not. ~
~ Once all the ponies have had their breakfast, and are out in their fields to get some of their pent up energy from the night- it's time for us to have breakfast and get ourselves ready for the day. We had toast.
Walt and I can't cook to save our lives.
Once we're done with all of that nonsense, it's time to get on with our day. ~ This update was slightly pathetic but uhhh.... Cheers?

Sassy Geldings 30-3-2020
A little photodump of our geldings Jabask and Robin!
~ Kronborg's Jabask ~
~ Mr. Jabask is new to the gelding life and doing great! He still acts like a stud as has to be turned out in a pasture by himself but he's been progressively chilling out and we're hoping by the end of April he can be turned out with the other boys without anyone coming back with a bunch of bumps and scratched! ...or jumped fences into the mare's paddock. Thank god we live on the property so we could get this goober out of the mare's paddock before disaster struck haha! Fear not, Jabask is now the sire to a handful of lovely foals before he got gelded! ~
~ Foxglove's Robin Hood ~
~ Robbie is just about to come off of his winter break. Robbie goes on break during the colder months thanks to his crackhead reaction to cold weather and some bad breeding and training from whatever backyard breeders her came from giving him some sensitive joints. The thing about Robin is that I don't really have to worry about him getting out of shape because this guy works himself. I can just let him out in the arena and he zooms around like a maniac. The goals for Robbie as spring comes on is to work on his dressage foundations before he goes back into over fence works. I think he's ready to get back into work though, I think he's starting to get a bit bored sitting around and "impressing" the mares. (More like annoying the mares.) ~
~ I'm working on getting my motivation back for using the forums so bare with me friends Cheers!
