This effect is, of course, amplified when you're trying to move 13 horses, 6 boarders, and (I've lost count of how many) lesson clients and all THEIR stuff. Luckily a good chunk of the new barn was built already so we could move in stages the past few weeks.

Most of the Penwick crew came up last week for barn clean up and jump building. We managed to dodge the rain and enjoy pizza and lessons in the new indoor. Arizona tagged along to check out the new digs and came back from the woods with this doozy of a bone:

We are super creative!

This week I'll be organizing our storage areas and getting everyone settled in while Chelsea shows at the Kent School HT on Sunday. (By the grace of God I managed to tame Regals mane in between moving but I SWEAR that horse grew another few inches this winter and he certainly used it to his advantage as I tried to pull his afro into something more respectable. Total pussy cat until you whip out a mane comb then he's my little wild step-child.) After organizing I get a few weeks to rest for a bit before trudging all my stuff up to the barn and my new apartment:
|Coolest apartment ever btw - second floor bedroom has the best view of the pond and cross country field!|
