The Idea of Order: Hump Day!

Hopefully only the good kind…

Presented by:

Greetings, fellow Small Predators!
Florida continues to showcase her mercurial nature by throwing Lightning Storm Raves at 3:00 am, Biblical Flooding by 9:00 am, Hurricane Force Winds around noon, only to wrap up with a balmy, but delightful sunset. 🤔🫣
I chose not to fly my Red Dragon in it, but I did harass Wilson who kindly opted not to kill me when we were blown across the pasture.
Perhaps as a result of the aforementioned weather, or just that whole adulting thing, it feels like this week has been 47 days long so far. 😳 Thank goodness we’ve at least hit the halfway mark until the weekend.
Anyone else really feeling this week? Here’s to hoping your hump day is as tame as possible! 😅🫣
Morgane Schmidt is, among many things, an equestrian who still hasn’t quite decided what she wants to be when she grows up. Author of Life with Horses Is Never Orderly, she knows all about the madness that comes with the equine territory, having owned and competed horses in eventing and dressage for years. A lifelong fan of the classic equestrian cartoons penned by internationally renowned artist Norman Thelwell, she began her own comic series in 2011, sharing deftly funny reflections on life with horses on Horse Nation as well as her personal website. A native Floridian, she spent a decade in Reno, NV, where she was able to confirm her suspicion that snow is utterly worthless (she has since regained her sense and moved back to the Florida swamp). Though she has run the gamut of equestrian disciplines, her favorite is dressage. She has completed her USDF bronze and silver medals and is currently working on her gold. Generally speaking, her life is largely ruled by Woody, a 14.2 hand beastly quarter horse, Willie, a now beastly 12-year-old Dutch gelding, and Milona DG, a 6 year old KWPN chestnut mare (you can make your own inferences there…).
