This has been a difficult time for me.  Although my laptop has finally been returned, the last few days I’ve not been in the right frame of mind to blog.  I blew my knee out again, after three lovely rides on Mojo, and the reoccurrence has some serious repercussions.  For one thing, I will most likely be looking at July – at the earliest – before I can ride again.  After a lot of honest introspection, I have decided to move Mojo to a friend’s barn where he will be ridden regularly while I deal with my knee.  I don’t want Mojo to have another 10 weeks off – he’s had enough time off in his life and his work ethic, as small as it is, needs to be encouraged, not extinguished by remaining a pasture puff.

My friend’s barn is an hour away.  I will probably only see Mojo a few times a month.  I am really sad, as he is my One True Thing – the light of my life that I can turn to when all else is difficult and trying.  However, my responsibility is to his well-being, so I have to do what is best for him.

I’ll be moving him on Saturday.

Does anyone have recommendations for barefoot trimmers, boarding, and trainers in the Ft. Collins, CO area?  A friend and her horse will be moving there this summer.

I do realize, between my fiction and artist requests, I’m being a little needy over here on ye olde EqPal.  I promise to make it up to you all just as soon as the Lovely Boyfriend returns my laptop.  Until then, posts will be short and sweet.  Or maybe just short.

Although I haven’t yet really dug in to the subject, I am very interested in contemporary equine art.  My taste is more towards the modern, post-modern, and abstract, but I’m open-minded.  I had the thought that maybe I’d even like to start a gallery here, so if you all have a favorite artist you’d like to recommend, that would be great.

In the meantime, I found artist Barbara Rush, who has a self-described neo-cubist style:

It looks to me like she might be a dressage rider.  What do you all think?

I have been remiss in commenting and answering comments, but I’ve still been hoarding away posts to list today:

I have a heap of new horse blogs to go through when I have some time to “pan for gold” as I love discovering new sites to network and share. If you know of a great blog that I haven’t yet discovered, send it my way!

Why does it have to be windy every *&#! weekend here? I don’t mean breezy, I mean cross-gusts of up to 35mph. I realize that “It’s too windy to ride” can be a rather time-worn excuse, but does anyone really want to take their horse out in a steady 25mph wind?

This has been a long week and I haven’t had any Mojo time as I’ve tried to adjust to my wildly fluctuating schedule with a new job, so I was really looking forward to spending my one day off communing with the Big Red Caboose. I know we haven’t had snow and I really shouldn’t complain but I am sick to death of the unending wind. Grr.

I am working on the blog round up, so it should be up in an hour or so….
