WW: Life In Self Isolation

As usual, I suck at the 'wordless' part of Wordless Wednesdays, but here's some photos that sum up my life from the passed few days.  I'm working from home (as is everyone from my work), Sierra is injured and i'm trying to find this new level of 'normal'.

My days consist of balancing work life and home life.  I'm tasking myself with at least 1 'oddball chore' per day in addition to my expected workload as a means of staying busy and productive in these uncertain times. 

Sierra is home now (and injured), so I haven't been riding but it's nice having her right outside my door again for the first time in months!

Saturday - Upon Discovery that something wasn't right given the swelling... 
Tiny puncture .... Or so we thought?

She had several scrapes and one puncture, which has been the main source of our issue.  An infection was imminent and obviously brewing, so I started her on antibiotics on Monday

Clear infection ... 

2 Days after starting on Antibiotics - looking much better, but still seeping
Day 4, Blown wide open.. no more draining or puss and finally looking like healthy tissue it seems.

Finally way less swelling

Moved back in

I have to re-arrange the ribbons and put a few more up still

My recent score - they need some paint but they're sturdy!

Happy hens

Happy Pones!
I feel this ...

Sierra and Banker (Hubby's OTTB)

Some of my oddball chores have included purging, cleaning and oragnizing

Blog Hop: 2020 Summary; Covid Edition

 While we all live in different towns, have different goals and different lives - but one thing that we all have in common is what a wild and wonky year 2020 was.  The reality is, it's all affected us in one way or another, and with 2020 coming to an end it's time to reflect and look hopeful towards an improved 2021. What's the best thing that happened to you in 2020? Personal: Hands down, the birth of my daughter .  After 4 years of fertility struggles, I'm beyond grateful and though some days feel like an eternity of struggle, confusion and pain, my heart has never been more full. Horsey: It's hard to choose. Despite hardly riding, I've had a lot of wonderful horsey-filled memories this year.  From the birth of Phascinating BRR , my second homebred to date, to the few rides I got to enjoy and making a major investment in my breeding business, there's been lots to be thankful for. What's the worst thing that happened to you in 2020? Personal: It's

The Purge

I've been mulling over the idea of doing a post regarding the integrity (or occasional lack of) in the equestrian community for some time, but I couldn't seem to develop a clear vision in my head of how I wanted to piece it together.  I think the reality is, the topic in itself is messy and clouded at best, so I decided to throw all my thoughts out through my fingertips and help myself make sense of all these big feelings I've got swirling around. It's no secret that to some extent, equestrian activities are for the elite. I'm not necessarily talking about those who were born into a Trust Fund or were gifted exceptionally talented horses with easy access to top quality instruction and services but of course, those exist too. I'm talking more so about us - average people.  While you're probably thinking " umm, I'm far from elite and I'm just barely squeeking by * stirs ramen* ", I agree and I hear you when you say you work bloody hard to sup
