Surprise, I'm not actually stranded on a desert island (but I wish) ..
In true Alberta Equest fashion, I suck at the whole 'wordless' part of these posts, but the short and simple is I have been riding, I may have found the solution to our recent problems under saddle, and I am the proud new owner of a rescued senior Clydesdale mare. A lot of these photos are horrible and/or bad timing thanks to my wonderful not-camera-savvy husband who tries hard, but her relaxation is A++ so I don't even care. Enjoy!
PS: She's only 16h and isn't as obese as she looks.
