    Okay, so all kidding aside, would you like to see a really good tropping video? I mean, a spankin'-good, horrible to ride, I didn't know what I was doing trop? I have a good one on my Youtube channel.


    Just skip past the showmanship stuff. The good part starts at 1:08. This was when I first started doing QH shows and I had NO idea that SLOW meant still going FORWARD. I was such an ig-nent cuss.

    You know, I look at that video and I think--wow--we've come a long way. Our showmanship was even horrible, though at the time I thought it looked pretty darn good. LOL. Now that I'm longer in tooth I can see all the little things that I needed to do better. Amazing.

    Those pigeons drove me nuts!!

    I was watching that video and wondering what the heck that thing was. My first thought was that someones little lapdog got loose and was running around the arena LOL.

    And those darn things thought it was GREAT fun to fly off right when you were over the top of them. It was like that insurance commercial, the one with the squirrels wrecking the car. I swear there was a cadre of pigeons in the rafters saying, "Go after the bay next!! The bay!"

    There were birds up in the covered arena outside of the indoor at Lexington one year. They kept dropping the insulation on us as we rode by. I think they are evil. I really do.

    They're just a little too smart to be truly stupid, aren't they?

    Going to put the pigeons in a book one day, I swear.

    Bf offers pigeon hunts for his guide service. They shoot a crap load every year. Maybe he should start talking to arenas for before shows?
