It's now been 3 days since I've been to the barn, and four since Bar got any work.
I am attempting to not feel guilty. I'm failing at the moment, but I know a) this will pass (we're hiring) and b) my horse will forgive me and be glad when I do show up to play with him. After he pouts a little and I've emptied the carrot bins of all the local grocery stores to make it up to him, of course.
There's also the fact that I may have the world's bounciest Thoroughbred when I do get there, which should be fun.
We've got a three-day weekend coming up and my boss has informed me he really would like me to take the entire time off (he himself is going to be skiing) and that is my intent. If I can just catch up in the next couple of days, it should work.
And if I can even just get close, that will be enough.
My pony needs me and I need him. Balance must be restored to my universe.
