I'm sorry about duke :/.
On a note I feel so frustrated. I seem to finally get ahead in riding, finally starting to run had chrome heeling up and ready to move on to a forever home. Well that is until he pulls up lame out of nowhere. So now I have a 4 yr old grade gelding with a sketchy past and possibly lame. I love him but I just can not afford to keep a horse who I can't barrel race with and he would make a better horse for someone not wanting to be as competitive. I just feel like we had an awesome chance finding him a home and then we get set back again. Poor guy has been through so much I just want to get him into a good home already. :/.
On a good note I finally got to go to a barrel race and can't wait to go again. Sugar ran a 19 something for his first time out, being out of shape and having a side gate and me forgetting to start off a little farther over. That little 14.1 chubby boy can boogie! Lol
