Well. It’s the last day of 2018. What can we say? It’s been a helluva year. We’ve had our ups and downs, our wins and our falls in the water jump, learned lots of new things, made new friends, soaked a lot of abscesses, shared gory human x-ray photos on social media, bought some ponies, sold some ponies, waded through mud, rocked our farmer’s tans, walked our courses 9,578 times, and drunk a lot of wine. That about sums it up, right? Ready for more of the same in 2019!!
