OK, here we go... the "I'm sort of but not really watching the Super Bowl" thread!
So the TV is on, chips on the table, beer in hand... I'm a New Englander through and through, but eh...
Who wants to talk rollkur?
Or Crossed Sabers?
How about slaughter?
Barefoot vs. shod?
I'm actually seriously thinking of buying this really cute weanling off the internet. He's not halter-broke yet, I've only been riding for 6 months but my 17 year-old trainer says we'll be able to make a killing in stud fees in a couple years. I think it's a great deal, especially because he's a Gypsy Vanner and he's only $25,000 and he poops PURPLE SKARKLY butterflies!!!
I'm drinking a glass of wine and helping the economy by shopping for blankets & tack online. Never mind that my horse is retired from showing and 28 years old. Some day in the near future I'll be purchasing a new project, and darn it this stuff I'm buying will fit!

I mucked all my stalls, cooked, (homemade pizza and kalamata foccacia bread) and I'm here in the living room "watching" the game. DH does not care if I really watch it. The best part is that if someone leaves the room and returns asking "What happened?" I always say, "Well they all ran around and all fell down several times while you were out."
Wow, mucking was more fun and at least contemplative. I'm pulling for someone to win so there's no overtime.
I haven't stooped low enough to searching for horses online-yet . I just know that would get me in trouble! I do have the game on but I am flipping around too. Most importantly I'm browsing COTH and trying desperately to breathe through my nose I hate being sick!
I'm definitely pretending to watch... and drinking... but I mostly just watch the commercials. When I was a teen, I was really INTO football, watched all the Patriots games, etc. Not sure what happened.
Shopping does sound good. Shall we all post the ugliest horse we can find for sale online?
The kids are sprawled on the floor, we rode this morning and have already re hashed all the lessons.. now they are eating homemade pizza (do we see a trend?) and I am drinking a (well deserved) rum and coke!
I am ready for a nap,, if I kick the chair back a little farther,, I might just MAKE it!! BUT I want to be awake for HOUSE!
