Barrel Daze 2014

Well...JJ is BACK! We had an AMAZING time at BD this year!

Friday night we ran in the Sweepstakes to run a 14.231 and place 9th out of 80 smokin fast horses, was very happy with how he worked. And oh boy was he a turd to warm-up lol! A leaping spinning bucking lizard! Every horse that went by him I could feel he just wanted to explode! But he worked very good!

Saturday he was the same wild beast trying to warm up (as I just tried to bury my head and act like I wasn't on THE crazy horse in the warm-up lol)! If that is what it takes for him to smoke a run then heck he can do it! He went in and ran a 14.056 to place 7th in the 1D.

Sunday I finally gave up on trying to warm him up lol! As he was like a popcorn fart! Well...he went in and smoked a 14.019! We placed 12th in the 1D! We also placed 5th in the 1D average! It was a TOUGH group of horses this year, lots of 9s and 0s!

Now Scrat...he had a good run Saturday, ran a 15.616 with a lot of rate. And Sunday...well he was freer between the barrels but we did mow all 3 over lol! I was giggling on the way out thinking of the vine video "We hit all 3 but I am SO proud of him"! I'm sure the gate person though I was crazy!

So overall I couldn't have asked for a better weekend! Both the boys did great! I am so pleased with JJ, now that he's feeling good and we finally have his foot figured out he is back to JJ. Worked his 1st barrel PERFECT all weekend!

Now for the video!

And for the PICTURES!

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.
