Horses ♥

Few previous days I've spent in a small village in western Bohemia with my four legged friends - horses. I do horseriding for about 13 years now, but not very often. It's more like "holiday activity" for me.

All the time I'm looking forward to see my beloved white Thoroughbred horse called My Fair Lady. It's a horse with a sad story, since her mother died when she was only 3 days. I had to find my own way to her when my friend got her as a 1 year old, so it wasn't a love on the first sight for me. Soon love on the third sight or so.
But since then she is my number one horse.

Ready to get our asses out to the wilderness
Some people say that everytime I arrive to that place, she's looking forward to see me and she somehow "feels" I'm about to arrive. Everytime I see her after a long time, she is always the first horse to greet me. Still, sometimes she's just a stubborn horse making complete fun of me, shoving me I'm just a silly human that wants to be the master of a horse.

But as the time goes by, I think the horse really respects me, as much as I respect the horse. And of course, it's known that horse and his "master" should have the same character... indeed. We're both pretty much stubborn bitches, pretty mean to people we dislike, really a magnet to some sort of stupid injuries and sometimes lazy as hell, but when it comes to things we like, we go on until we "drop dead". :)

Sure I had more of the so-called "destiny horses" in my life, but I guess I'll come back to them a bit later, since they deserve their own "article".

My Fair Lady, as a Bloodhorse, is supposed to be successfull in horseracing. But since she's 7 years old and not in training, she is just a "hobby" horse. How bad it sounds, I really think it's good for her because of her bad past. Still, she really enjoys running as fast as she can (and she is damn fast, she has a great bloodline!), but nowadays she's getting better and better in jumping.
 
Wheee!
Well, she's just my lovely white lady. I'll be always there for her no matter what. Just shame that she is quite far away from the place I live in, so I can't see her as much as I'd want to.

Right.
I guess that pointless talking about my baby horse is enough for today :D

Morning coffee

That should be considered as my favorite part of the day, seriously. Sitting in some calm spot in the morning and ejnoying the first coffee of the day. Still it also depends on a coffee I'm drinking.

I'll be honest - after I've been to Finland, I'm not enjoying the usual czech coffee that much :D I've been always drinking coffee a la "two sugars & milk", there I've learned to drink black coffee. And I've been counting the days how long I haven't had the "two sugars & milk". I think that today is the 54th day.

Coffee has been a part of my day now for about 6 years. In the first days I used to hide "my coffee" behind the microwave oven, because I didn't want my parents to know I drink it, since I thought they'd think I'm too young for coffee. But like after a month of "hiding" I said to myself "oh fuck it.." and stopped hiding it, because still - better to be on caffeine than on cocaine :D

When I started going to the high school, we went on some "getting to know each other" trip, all first classes. It was a huge quest for coffee, since in the canteen they didn't serve any plus when you asked them for a cup, they were like "oh kid, aren't you too young?" So we made advantage of one trip to the village, bought a pack of coffee and in our cabins we just poured hot tab water on it. It tasted horribly, but at least it reminded us of a coffee a tiny little bit.

In school - I mean in one of the buildings - there we had the best coffee-machine coffee EVER. Mildly strong, great smell, even though a bit synthetic taste, damn, it was good. And quite cheap. 7 CZK (cca 0.25 €) for a cup is quite good I say.

The whole 2 year and a bit of the 3rd year I started being what in the czech republic people call "kavárenský povaleč" - coffee cooler. Withone of my friends we once did "tour de cafeteria" where we made 5 cafeterias in one afternoon. Woohoo, caffeine boost.

The second caffeine boost was on our band's rehearsal, when we made full kettle of strong black coffee and while playing our songs, we were drinking the coffee (combined with milk). At the same time, we did "live" recording to my lovely friend from Pilsen. I think she must have had fun listening to us, boosted by caffeine :D

Anyway, my morning coffee is nearly finished, so I think it's time to ruin this calm morning moment and get my ass to some business ;)

Ant - the introduction

Well, here we go.

I'm a starting student of Museum and gallery services with a huge uniform fetish.

I do photography, however I don't consider myself as some kind of professional. I'm an amateur who takes it as a hobby, but I have certain ambitions.

I have red hair, black glasses, zero piercings, zero tattoos and a huge iron cross on my neck.

I currently reside in Prague.. well have been living here all my life, but my heart belongs to a person currently living in Helsinki.

I guess this shall be enough for now, since first I need to get myself familiar with this thing .. and so :D
