Default I bought this for my birthday (not really a spinoff at all)

So I didn't discuss *why* I was staying at a B&B in Alford, Florida. This is why:



It was the closest accomodations to a place called Emerald Acres, a small horse breeder who breeds horses who are exactly the type I like.

For two years I have been following the growth and progress of one of the babies on the farm because she tended to have everything I would want in my future young dressage prospect to bring up behind Tucson. And this weekend I went out and bought her! Because I love the personality and less bulky build of Thoroughbreds but the innate ability in the type of horses called warmbloods, the trick was finding a breeder who uses a lot of thoroughbred blood in breeding dressage horses. She fits what I want more than any other horse I know of, and I think I'm lucky to have her!

Her name's Emerald Ice, and nickname is Ellie. She'll be on a truck across the country in October because there's no need to make her roast on a truck just because I'm impatient to have her here. After a microburst tore apart the barn yesterday, it also means we have time to fix things up before she gets here, too...

I'm super excited.

She's a very pretty girl! For some reason she intimidates me more than Tucson who just seems like a big old goof.

She's happy with pastures in Florida, the other girls are at our neighbor's and Tucson is at my trainer's. So they'll all be ok, assuming Tucson's lameness is the abscess we think it is. I've never dealt with one before, but it fits the symptoms... vet is checking him out tomorrow.


I think Tucson will be thrilled to have another member to his harem!


And Springcurl - I can see it! Tucson is a big old goof, and she's a two year old who needs to learn a lot. I'm guessing by 5 she'll be the horse I put beginners on...

Yep, and she wants to sit, too - which is the part I care even more about!

Glad everyone has a place to sleep!
