Whew, sorry! Sometimes things get crazy and I don't manage to blog for a while...
You are coming to visit me on Saturday, right? Hint hint, elbow, nudge....
I missed a day on the WIP but here it is as of tonight. His head is pretty much done, his body is not, and there will be a hint of background. Hmm, that scan came out a little punchy, there is more definition in the eyes and elsewhere.

So guess who has made a 180 and is doing fabulously well. Eddie! Eddie celebrates his 12th birthday in the next month or so. I should throw him a party, after all it is from him that all of my BBReds are descended. He's still staying in the house at night, at this point because I haven't figure out where else to put him (I really didn't expect him to last all winter...) and besides I've kinda gotten to enjoy having him in the house! But he spends his days outdoors.
Here he is out in the yard.
And this is how he lets me know he's ready to come inside for the evening...
I just realized when I was prepping these photos that it was 8 years ago today that I bought my horse Gwen. Wow. Time really does fly.
This is not just the photo angle, but within the last couple months Shylah's butt is suddenly taller than Gwen's butt. I did not expect that to happen. I wish her front end would catch up. Shylah is shorter at the shoulders, and Gwen is taller at the shoulders. So I guess maybe between the two they average out to a normal horse. Lol.
Let's see, what else... Oh! My dear readers, I seek your input. Cell phones. I need one. Technically I do have one, but it lives in the car and would cost a fortune to actually use (for things other than, you know, calling AAA to get my car towed, and other such emergencies). But it's time to be more reachable, businesswise and otherwise. I'd like to be able to put my contact info out to potential customers without giving out the home number, since that's not guaranteed to get me on the phone. It's the money thing that has kept me from getting one so far, so I need to keep it as cheap as possible. Got a plan you like? A company that doesn't nickle and dime you to death? Please give me input.
