Fingers crossed, New Farrier is supposed to be out today and Bobby is finally on his list! He only got done three weeks ago so I'm not expecting him to do too much actual work, but his shoes are already a little loose (!) and he's getting hind shoes back on as he's getting a little ouchy behind. I really, really hope New Farrier can help him out....and help him keep his shoes on. NF is more expensive, and hind shoes are going to up the current cost even more, but I'm literally throwing my money away using Old Farrier at this point.

For me! Well, that's the plan anyway. Hubby is in a wedding in two weeks and my first recognized event is in two weeks, so we're trying to tone up a smidge. I'm not concerned about losing weight (though I certainly wouldn't complain if I did), but I do want to be stronger, especially in my legs and core. I keep reading about other bloggers getting in shape, too. Exciting. Hubby and I are joining the forces.
After a few more rides in the Dr Bristol, I decided I wasn't one hundred percent on board with it. I dug through Sarah's locker (love having friends that don't mind you digging through their things!) and in the black hole that routinely eats her things I found this Happy Mouth. I haven't had luck with the Dee sides on most bits with Bobby, and he didn't like the bean thing in the middle of Kidd's loose ring bit, but I'm running out of options so I figured, Why not? I liked it. Bobby seemed to like it. We'll give it another week of rides and see if we both continue to like it.
Is it pretty? Eh.... I wanted a Charles Owen because they fit my dome piece; I wanted a skull cap because I don't like the look of regular hemlets on xcountry (I don't know why) and I can also use this in dressage for now; and I wanted something around $100. So it was in my price range and it will work for the time being.
Of some of yesterday's ride:
