Aside from a headache that I can’t lose, this has been a good weekend so far. (I get these headaches which settle firmly in place for four-five days, which really weaken my will to live at times).
The girl is going to take Kip, as her grandfather is paying for him. I spent at long time talking to him on the telephone – wonderful character. :) He’s sending me a business cheque, and as soon as that clears they’ll come and get him. I’m terrified that he’s going to injure himself in the interim – that ALWAYS happens.
Lizzie was better today than she was yesterday, when all she wanted to do was stick her head up in the air and try to run away with me. She may be this well-trained horse and all, but she’s frickin’ difficult at times – definitely not pushbutton. Once I get her listening to me, she’s lovely. When she’s tense and inattentive, she’s a pain in the ass.
I’m going to have a stall plate made with her name on it, and in small letters underneath it will say “When she was good, she was very very good, but when she was bad she was horrid.” :)
