The Last Post (except for videos and pictures of course!)

I had a riding lesson yesterday, which went pretty well. Sherwin agreed that $3000 would be the maximum price I could sell Chic for. I am glad that I now know that what I had in mind was realistic. Sherwin … Continue reading

This blog is due this week….

….and I feel like I have to explain myself for not having done enough with Chic. Or at least, I feel like I have not accomplished enough for her. Sure, Sherwin told me to market her for sale and that … Continue reading

I rode her again, twice

FINALLY getting somewhere with Chic!
