|Not impressed with new bit, but look at that foam!
So I bought a 5" double jointed snaffle with a copper roller and those rubber bit guards to help prevent it from sliding around. While she was very not happy with it for our first couple rides, she's gotten better and not only listens to my hands but doesn't seem as hard mouth as before.

We've also had some use of our Christmas presents, some more than others. We had a week or so of cold temps and got to try out our new quarter sheet. I was kinda worried that she's freak over being ridden and having it flap around, but she was fine. Since then its been warm and we haven't had to use it. I also got a Swanky Saddle script name plate for the back of my saddle but it didn't come till after Christmas. I've never had a name plate before, and I'm not super into monogramming all the things (I know I know) but I loved these the first time I saw them.
As for our other big changes, my truck died yet again almost exactly a year since it died the first time. Apparently my electrical system likes to break down. I told my mom after last year's fiasco (it ended up taking almost 2 months to get my truck fixed) that I wasn't going through this again and she agreed that it's time to start looking for a new truck. So hopefully I'll have a new to me 3/4 ton truck sitting in my car port soon.
|RIP little Red. On the plus side I wasn't hysterically sobbing on the phone to my mom this time
