There are a few horse show pics that turned out okay. Here's Chester and I in Sport Horse. He drastically improved since the last show as far as behavior.
Patience and Rascal were the first class in and as far as I'm concerned got an inadvertent disadvantage. I'll explain, the judges took a break before the gelding classes so I got to take Chester in the arena and practice the pattern about ten times right before the class. Patience took Rascal in and she was nervous - as was Chester the first few times. Anyway, it's a lesson learned, and great practice for Patience because she handled Rascal's nerves like a pro!
Here's grandpa! He came down to offer the kind of support only HE can, and it helped. Patience also showed Prize in Sport Horse, and was supposed to do the walk trot later on but couldn't because Prize went lame. D had a vet look at her and they determined age plus the stall.
All in all, it was a wonderful mothers day weekend with my whole family!
Technology never ceases to amaze me. I haven't been blogging, because our computer took a nose-dive crash. After trying to fix it and having no success, the ole trusty has been hooked back up. By "ole" I mean OLD - it's an early nineties model, but even though it's very slow, it seems to be working ok. There are sooo many updates! To start, Patience and I hitched a ride to the Green Country Arabian Classic last weekend (Thanks D!). We showed Chester and Rascal Sport Horse in Hand and they both did really well! This weekend turned out a success as well. Chester and Rascal have left the homeland, because I moved them to a different place on Sunday. What a day, we borrowed my dad and his trailer (he delivered it full of square bales - thanks Dad!) and spent the morning moving horses, stuff, and settling everyone in. I have so far been pleasantly surprised how well they're doing and how level-headed they are both being. This morning they both had a good walk, exploring all around, and a decent work-out in the round pen as well. Chester did not mind going with me and Rascal did wonderful by herself. When I took Rascal away from Chester though, he discovered being lonely and threw a fit. I just went ahead and left Rascal in the round pen till he got over it. All in all, I think this change will be good for the horses and good for the family!
Mother of three partnered with the most patient man you'll ever meet. I work full-time and sometimes more plus take care of what seems like the world! I enjoy a good book and a laugh. The simplest things make me smile.
Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.
Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.
Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.
