Prayers for Texas

For all those dealing with the monsoon in Texas...
I'll pray for this to come out of the next cloud that hits.


I think the tables have turned and the New England area is turning into the desert. It's been so dry and dusty and the pollen is ridiculous! Send some of your rain this way! At least the hay fields are looking pretty awesome. If things keep going the way they are going at work I'll definitely be able to help Ed the Hay Guy this year! Ugh - Thanks for all the wishes of things to get better. I try to stay optimistic but... it hasn't seemed to help much.                                    ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Ms. Kate finally got to come by for some ride time on the little Fireball we've got. I gave her fair warning but of course, The Zoe totally proved me wrong and she was awesome! I was thrilled to see how happy they both looked prancing around. You wouldn't know the Zoe was my age. Pretty awesome to see one of my best pony friends riding my best friend's pony! <3


Looking pretty snazzy!
Other than being in raging heat at all times (I feel a little Mare Magic coming on), she's been awesome... In the arena. Trying to handle her in any sort of situation outside the arena she's become quite the beast. But as soon as you get on she's like, "...okay, I'll work. As long as I can keep moving!" She was great for Kate though so that's all that mattered to me. It was nice to ride with her.

The struggle of being in love...
So yeah she'll scream and call and run you over if you're not on her, but Brantley handles the separation quite well. I'm sure he'd rather be gallivanting his "studliness" around the farm without me, but so far so good.

We've been having some really great, focused rides. Yes I said FOCUSED! I'm really trying to work on going in with maybe not a direct goal, but something I just want to work on. If I set a certain goal and I can't reach it, I don't want to put myself down so I just say hey, let's really work on sitting deep and pushing B into the corners today and if I can get a little bit of repeated success I'll be happy.

I've mentioned in the past about the little serpentines we do but we have finally moved up to full arena serpentines! *And the crowd goes wild!* I know, not really a big deal... Unless your horse goes straight like this...

Okay, maybe it's not that dramatic. But it's pretty bad.

So to follow up with our awesome ride, Wendy came up and we hit Ryan Park for the first time this year and didn't have to call the paramedics thank god. Elijah did well with the water and the boat ramp. He actually played a bit and splashed Brantley... Who wanted to take me swimming. Our last few rides have been pretty... stressful exciting... but this one was perfect. All the work from the day before paid off because I think it was the softest B had been in a long time. So soft that we had a nice little canter through the field.

Chevy Update!

Another exciting jaunt with Cairo... Leads to this:

I was trying to avoid the groomer... (Polar Square Designs)
So we hit the water and well... He still stinks! (Polar Square Designs)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MITCH!




Some adorable kitten pictures. Couldn't help it.
He's that oldest child you look at and say, "You'll always be my favorite."

Soon the rain will dry out in Texas! This is what we get for having a mild winter while everyone else was under snow :)

You'd think he's adorable... At first glance... But really? Can he truly be trusted?

I'm honestly surprised we didn't have nearly as much flooding as we should've. Probably because it's like 80* for a few days then back to 40*. Mother nature is seriously going through menopause I swear.
