YaYa Get Together
Well, the first holiday weekend of Dec. is behind us and Sherry outdid everyone with her dirty Santa gift. It is a good thing we are all "farm girls"... oooooolala! YaYa's got together without horses at Kathy Burrows' place and ate, drank, made merry, and talked and laughed and plotted our next ride. Sherry orchestrated a beautiful portrait for Jurgen for Rita as a token of our appreciation for hosting our rides all year long. And the Food! we all know how to cook. yummy. The dirty Santa game was fun and no injuries were reported. Thank you all for your friendship - I look forward to many years of YaYa's with you all. BTW - we really need to work on our yaya names soon. If you don't already have one, be thinking. Mine is the Empress Equine Obsessed, so if you remember your yaya name, please post. If you have suggestions for any un-named sister, chime in....
So ride time; I did get a little on Sat. morning before the 4-H banquet. I went to Patty's early with Pico and Splash and worked Pico first. It's been a while since he has been worked, so we were just re-acquainting. Then, Splash. We started without the neck stretcher and saw a little improvement but put it back on so I could work on pushing Splash out without fighting with my hands. We had a good lesson and although slow, I think some progress is happening. So, until next weekend. YaYa.
