Weekend in Pictures & Preparation

As I said, this past weekend was a pretty busy weekend - all good other than that time I was arrested. I mean, that was pretty not okay. Friday night was the Kip Moore Concert and then Saturday was the Roller Derby - here's some pictures!

Saturday night Roller Derby
Mason's Philharmonic Concert
Me & Rosie at Kip Moore!

A Thousand Horses - opening act for Kip Moore
First set of shots are on Tuesday - Excited? Sure... Bill at the end of the month... Not so sure. But right after shots I've spoken with Ben at Cherry Croft and as long as I can get Brantley on the trailer, they've got a spot for him. I can only afford to send him for a week but it's something! Then second set of shots 2 weeks later. Hopefully timing is on my side.

Walk with my boys!
Such a good pony!
Some people go to the gym before work.
Yesterday turned out to be a pretty good day. Took Chevy and Brantley out for a walk (yes, hand walked both and yes, I got some pretty funny looks). It's totally normal. Looking at getting an e-collar for field training for the lab. I think he'd definitely benefit from it and plus that means I can take him out on the trail and have him on a "leash". I'm more worried about other dogs than him. He's just so friendly and wants to meet every body. I know he'd stick with Cairo, K's dog, but he'd run up to any dog not knowing they could rip his head off.

After we walked I ran him home, started some laundry, then headed back to the barn to feed lunch and take Pretty on a ride. I got back to the barn about 2 and thought about when the last time I rode Pretty was... A little over a week ago. For having 3 months off and just getting back to work recently, I knew there'd be some ummm... complications. But psh, tacked her up and didn't feel like switching bits out of her western headstall... Happy Mouth? She'll be ffiiiinnnnnneeee! Ugh, don't have time to really lounge her, eh... She'll be fiiiiiinnnneeeee! Walked over to the main barn to see if anyone wanted to come with me and she was dancing and spinning. P asked if I'm sure she's good to go out and my reply was, psh... She'll be fiiiiinnneeee!!!! Yesterday was my lucky day. We went up and down hills, stayed at a walk, she kept her head low (took advantage of the split reins) and just trudged along like I had just run her for an hour. I decided to take a step further and walk her over the bridges with the rushing water dam. I reminisced about the last time we went over the bridges and she launched on and off it, not purposely trying to kill me. SHE WAS FINE!

Walked around the indoor with one of the boarders who was having a lesson when I got back. No reins, hands in pockets. The trainer asked if she was an Arab/QH cross. Pure A-Rab my friend, ain't she cute. And theeeeen it was time for my 4 hour shift at the hospital...

Back to ring work for Brantley tomorrow. Refining our ground skills for Ben next week. Woohoo!
