Birthday Girls - YaYa
Well, we have developed a tradition of recognizing birthdays (as if we need any excuses for partying). Marsha and Kathy B took the second shift for October and Kathy sent me the picture from July. I think we look better by the day and we certainly know how to laugh. Who is next on the list - Rita knows.
I will miss riding at Rita's this week since I will be in Kansas but next weekend we will have a dressage schooling show at Rocking C on Saturday as well as a 4-H Halloween Play Day at Glenbrook on Sunday. Since I will be gone all week, we are working on costumes this weekend. The girls are excited and decorating bridles. I rode Pico a little yesterday before taking him to Beth's for the week so she can work him some while I am gone in hopes of making a qualifying score for the Schooling Show Championships in Nov. In the party lesson today I rode Splash and he didn't seem to be feeling 100%. Perhaps he was dragging since I gave him de-wormer last night. I used spurs which gave me better straightness and got his difficult lead canter first try. Marsha had some really good work with Lil and Carol was looking great on Shilo.
So, think horsey thoughts for me while I am in the north country and see you next week - YaYa.
