|One year and I think she only puts up with me|
My next train of thought was Casey could be abbreviated to "case," and then I fell down a rabbit hole of trying to think of things that I could make out of "case." I got my blog name from this - Case of Addiction, but I was reluctant to give that name to Casey because there can be negative connotations with the word "addiction." For a blog it works because I am addicted to horses, but Casey isn't really addicted to anything.

|Yeah, there's no way she would be free to anyone else now|
This week I finally made my decision and landed on "Casi Volando." I like how it connects to her barn name & that it relates to jumping/flying. I also kind of love that it is a Spanish name, because I learned how to ride & jump in Paraguay, a Spanish-speaking country, so it feels like an ode to my riding beginnings. I'm a tad worried about how much announcers will butcher it, but if I love it, then surely it is good enough!
Right now I have three color combos that I am really digging:
- Hunter green with gold accents
- Navy with silver accents
- Navy with baby blue accents
|Casey in blue|
I know from experience that Casey looks amazing in Hunter Green. It is definitely her color. My hesitation for that color combo though is that it is an "in" color right now that lots of people are using, and I live in Oregon so green/yellow is associated with the Oregon Ducks (which no offense to them, I don't need any more Duck stuff in my life).

Navy might be the more practical option, as navy will never fall out of fashion. Plus blue is my favorite color, so I might go that way instead. In which case, which pairs better with navy? Silver or baby blue? Decisions, decisions.
|I own no navy saddle pads, but this royal blue one looks great on Casey|
The other option is that I could have two sets of show colors and alternate between them. In which case, I should probably make the accent color grey so that way I could get a grey show coat and just alternate between saddle pads & bonnets for Casey.
|But the green is so pretty...|
Does anybody else struggle with deciding on these things? Any input?
