|Alex & Bernie BFFs|
Alex officially moved to the new farm July 13, 2014, but most of the week before and after was spent cleaning, prepping, moving and settling in to our new wonderful home.

Moving weekend was crazy busy... Saturday we moved all my jumps, which seemed more numerous the more the temperature climbed, 40 bags of shavings and 50 bales of hay.

Since we had moved away from Alex's home for the past two years (and the only place he'd ever lived while I owned him), I figured it would take quite a while for him to settle. I gave him a few days to hang out before I rode. Of course since I was expecting mass chaos, he was pretty much perfect despite having nearly a week off AND being in a new environment... such is life with Alex :-)
And in the same vein, as quickly as we'd had our first ride, Alex decided to rip off his left front shoe...
Now that was partially my fault because he was overdue for a shoeing because of our change in location and my farrier was trying to get us on the schedule, but Alex certainly got his money's worth.

Luckily for us, the farrier came in two days, so we didn't waste much time and I think that saved us from any lameness.
After the shoe debacle, things have pretty much been smooth sailing... Alex seems REALLY happy in his new home and I am really happy there too. The peace and quiet are amazing.
