Friday Five


I’m excited for the weekend, y’all: I have a haircut scheduled for tomorrow morning. I’ve had exactly one haircut this year, and for a few years before that, I cut my own hair. The thought of going to a salon is almost too luxurious for me to stand.

When I haven’t been dreaming of haircuts, here’s what’s been on my radar this week:

ONE Improve Your Horse’s Topline

This article from August’s Practical Horseman is full of great advice on how to build your horse’s topline. The steps are slow, methodical, and simple, and guess what? Two point is on there, just in time for Two-Pointober.

TWO Facebook testing reaction buttons

Sadly, it doesn’t sound like a “dislike” button is coming anytime soon; that’s a real shame, because ‘dislike’ would be so much easier than directing people to Snopes. Sigh.

THREE New York Times 36 hour guides

I’m a big fan of weekend trips- there’s a lot you can do over a weekend, it’s less expensive than going away for several days, and it’s just long enough to feel like a break. I just discovered the NYT has a whole series on weekend getaways to all sorts of locations, from Pittsburgh to Croatia. I feel like Albuquerque might be in our future!

FOUR GoPro Chilean horse rescue

I don’t even know what I would do if I found a horse stranded in the snow!

FIVE Kentucky Shooting Star Coat

Kentucky apparel is one of those things that my workplace sells that I rarely get to see. It’s usually on the dressage trailer or sent directly to a customer, so when one of these Shooting Star coats appeared in the shipping room last week, I couldn’t help checking it out! It’s absolutely stunning in person- the crystals, the buttons, the softshell fabric! Le sigh- it’s out of my budget even with the employee discount, so I’ll just admire from afar.

What are y’all up to this weekend? Anything exciting on your radar?

  1. A dislike button really would be easier sometimes. I don’t know what I’d do if I found a horse stranded anywhere let alone in the snow.

  2. Albuquerque doesn’t get enough credit! Although, I still would have to say I recommend it this time of year for the Balloon Fiesta (world’s largest). The NYT article does include a lot of my favorite restaurants though. Drooling missing some!

  3. I am lusting after that jacket. I really wanted their coat with the lace collar but sadly I didn’t buy it and of course now it’s not being made. 🙂

  4. I think I really like that shooting star coat. If it comes in navy I might be in trouble.

    I saw that on the news about the Chilean horse! Poor girl!
