I like making tack, but that last, big flurry of Breyerfest orders left me feeling more than a little burned out. As soon as I put the last box in the mail, I vowed to take a week off to recharge my creative batteries.
Not surprisingly, a lot of that week has been spent at the barn.Since Rev is going so well, we've started adding little jumps to our ring work. The results aren't always pretty, but we sure are having fun.
On the home front, I've made some progress on the saddle blanket...
and am slowly but surely working my way through Jenn's box of naked resins.
So--not a terribly interesting or productive week, but at least I've stopped whining about not going to Breyerfest!
These last three photos are for everyone who expressed interest in Ile St. Frances after seeing his picture in yesterday's photo montage.As I mentioned in the comment section, Ile St. Francis is a five year old bay gelding by Ile St. Louis and out of Southernsluckystar by Manzotti. He has made twenty six lifetime starts, winning two (including his race on Friday).
He's a cute horse, but unlike Miss Lake, I have no particular interest in owning him. Still, I do wish I'd bet on him. After all, he paid $91 to win and $62.20 to place!
