Saturday Links from Tipperary

With winter coming, it's time to stock up on socks for the barn! With winter coming, it's time to stock up on socks for the barn!

Hey, EN. Happy weekend! I hope you have something exciting planned. Sadly, I am chained to my office job and will be missing the festivities at Twin Rivers this weekend. On the upside, it does mean that I might luck in to some quiet time at the barn to get some painting in. With William Fox-Pitt coming to Dragonfire Farm later this year, it is certainly time to refresh some of the jumps. I’m not sure what it is, but painting jumps has the same meditative quality for me that body clipping a horse does. Part art, part labor-of-love, all relaxing. Time to find my painting duds and get to it.
