Goodbye To Dizzy; Hello Zinardi
The above photo is my daughter (the college freshman who is home for springbreak).
She is riding her horse Dizzy; or rather it WAS her horse until yesterday. We sold her....
SAD... WE knew we should do it, but we love her alot! Even though she was a bit
crazy at times and she grew WAY TOO BIG for my 5'2" daughter. It was not the right horse for my daughter and we knew it, but we still hated to get rid of her.
WE had no idea she would sell so quickly. Just our luck...We moved last summer and our old house in GA STILL HAS NOT SOLD. We really need to sell that house. Didn't really HAVE to sell the horse right now BUT she sold in less than 2 weeks. AND just as my daughter comes home for springbreak. WITH nothing to do but hang out with her boring parents.
Hence, the reason I scheduled shopping trips, hair appointments and movies.
Luckily, there is another horse 'waiting in the wings' to be loved on by us!
His name is Zinardi and flew over from Holland back in November.
He's a much better size for my daughter AND he's a HE, which means he doesn't have the female hormonal thing working like my dear old Dizzy.
The photo below is my daughter on Zinardi. He's quite a little love-muffin. Likes to
nuzzle and a little nibbling. We plan to lease him for the summer while she is home from college. Not sure what we'll do when she heads back to school in the fall.
It's a 'wait & see' kind of thing.
Anyway, that's a chunk of what's been happening in our household this week.
The week was supposed to be a happy one with daughter home.
First my wonderful camera BROKE, so I can't take photos unless I use my old crappy camera. Then the horse sold, the car had a minor malfunction and we FINALLY got an
offer on our house in GA today! Of course the offer is laughable. It's so far below
the list price that we don't even know what to say at this point.
I'll keep you posted.
We're going to visit Dizzy at her new barn later this week and say a 'formal' goodbye and take pics (with a crappy camera). My GOOD camera should be arriving
at the Canon Service center by Thurs. so maybe, just maybe I will have it back in a few short weeks.The car is fine now.I'll let you know how the home sale in GA shakes out...
In the meantime my fellow friends and artists.
Live your life creatively and definitely with a sense of humor!
