@AtokaGhosthorse , I hear you about auctions, you only need to look in my tack room to know I need to stay the heck away from them.

@TimWhit91 , I bet the next 3 weeks are going to be very hard. Do you get to see him at all during that time?

Cool deal on being able to ride that guy's horses. Good if you just get to ride, awesome if you get training fees on top of it!

I may get him for a weekend in the next 3 weeks if his father is in a good mood. I'm not gonna hold my breath though. I miss him already and it has only been 1 dat :(

And yes, I would be fine riding my favorite when I feel like it. But this guy is super generous and will probably want to pay me for at least putting miles on the youngster. Either way, fine with me!

@TuyaGirl , she's a goof with that tongue that's just her! Sorry work has been so crazy. I really hope that you can soon get some relief and a break!! Sorry Tuya hasn't been seen yet I'd keep on your barn owner and make sure he realizes it's very important to have him out. I hope your mom will be ok

@carshon , I sure hope the rain gives up soon! You need to get some saddle time!

@PoptartShop , I hope you heal up quickly!! And that you can get back in the saddle soon! I'm glad you got to ride a few new guys! That's going to be so much fun!

@JCnGrace , I'm glad your hubby's friend was able to help with a job! Much nicer than needing to help him yourself!

@AtokaGhosthorse , that's why I don't drink during the week I'm a lightweight haha! And I'm not allowed to go to auctions haha! I'd be the same way!

@cbar , enjoy your long weekend! I say do minimal adulting and enjoy the weekend instead

@TimWhit91 , that sucks my thoughts are with you. Hopefully it goes quickly... good luck with riding the horses!

I confess, I'm worn out!!

I won't type it all up here (I'll eventually post it in my journal.....) but Regionals was yesterday. We took Top Five in our two Sport Horse In Hand classes (she was EXHAUSTED by the time we got to those classes) but behaved well.

But the highlight is....

That we went UNDEFEATED in the Sport Horse Under Saddle classes! Open and Amateur! Double Regional Champions! I'm super excited!

Cell phone picture of us with our championship ribbons (missing the two Top Fives), and then my award displays at home

Edit: ugh. Not sure why the pictures are sideways. And photobucket is fighting with me, naturally. Sorry guys!

@JCnGrace thanks for the suggestion. I never tried to ride like that, although I see it quite often on videos. I just snap the reins on the sides of the halter. I am pretty sure that Tuya does not know how to neck rein, she is ridden in a snaffle, direct rein. Although I confess once I tried to absorb all the info I could in the matter and I got a 'what the heck do you want from me??' reaction I am pretty sure I messed up too, beginning with trying with said snaffle, so not her fault at all

@AtokaGhosthorse I am so horse gear poor Although I miss nothing, most items are singular, like just one briddle, one pair of stirrups, one snaffle... If I found good sales I would love to have more, but not easy to find in here...
I suppose the Amish could relate to gypsies here: when they can ride, they sure can ride!! And have a huge knowledge about horses. Their kids ride as if they were born in the saddle! But when they mistreat, they mistreat for real, especially the cart horses

@TimWhit91 oh, that sucks about your baby. I hope you can see him during this period. And yay for getting back on the saddle. When do you start? Have fun!!

@Tazzie thanks for the get well wishes for my mum. Yeah, it's been complicated, or blood pressure is too low or rising suddenly, then she gets nervous and makes a snowball efect... Glad the doctor appointment is soon.
Izzie is doing great, my sincere congratulations on your achievements!! must be such a great feeling to obtain such good results. Some day you will have to rent a place just to keep the ribbons!!

Yeah, I didn't even attempt to ride. I made a screenshot of windguru for you to see. Red is a lot of wind already. Pink is a disaster!! It was pink almost the entire day (As the screenshot was taken at midnight you can only see the end of Saturday). Of course Monday is green... Lucky me... I brought Tuya in as soon as I arrived to the barn, poor thing wanted to go out again, but had runny eyes, so gave her lots of hay to get her distracted and that was it. I had sand everywhere, even in my bra...
The vet has been out of the country, BO hopes next week he will come, as he already knows what he has to do at the barn. I really hope he can make it...

Going to sleep now, I am pretty tired still...

Hopefully training horses will make 3 weeks go by fast @tim Wit91

Heal quick @PoptartShop !!

Congrats!! @Tazzie ! You must be SO proud of your girl!!

Yikes @TuyaGirl ! The weather doesn't look good!

I confess I think I'm addicted to editing pictures! It literally takes all my stress away, and lord knows I've been going through a lot lately! Here's one of the I've done:

Ok, I think I may be a bit biased, but I think my Flinty dog is prolly the cutest poser ever!

I went to see the horses today, didn't ride though. They are building a roundpen this week xD they told me I can ride whoever I want whenever I want. And the woman is recently retired and wants a riding buddy, so happy about that part! They have the ottb mare I have worked with before, then her sister who has been off the track for a year. They also have their mom, half brother, then a retired paint/appy and a little fat pinto pony. It was so fun to love on the horses today!

WOW! WOW! WOW! @Tazzie ! Huge props for your and Izzie's accomplishments at the show.

@TuyaGirl , it must be frustrating to have to wait weeks for a vet visit.

@GMA100 , good photography! I love collies no matter what form they come in rough, smooth, border, and shelties. OK, I've met some shelties that were excessive in their yipping but the ones that are raised with the right manners are awesome.

I confess that if I'd only bought what I went into Walmart for today I would have spent about 15 bucks. I came out spending $118.00. Shame on me! LOL

Getting ready to go to town I was standing in the closet staring at my tops trying to decide which one to wear and the thought crossed my mind that life was a lot easier when I was a kid and hardly ever wore tops in the summer. I think I was 12 before I finally started wearing them full time. Most early pictures show me in shorts with their waistband and the waistband of my undies all bunched up together or in undies only. LOL

@TuyaGirl , I do hope they can figure it out! That has to be frustrating YUCK to the wind!! And thank you! I'm very pleased

@GMA100 , thank you! I'm so incredibly proud it's not even funny! She's a special girl :) and I LOVE the picture! It's beautiful!

@JCnGrace , thank you! I cried. I'm sure the photographer got pictures of me crying haha! I was in absolute shock that we were announced the winners. After last years failure I wasn't even entirely sure I belonged there. I couldn't have done it without my support system (my husband, my best friends, etc). And haha! I think we have the same issue with over spending and LOL to running around in shorts or undies. Not sure that is acceptable once we get older my daughter ran around shirtless all day yesterday because she didn't want to wear one kindred spirits!

Wow. I confess when I only manage to log on once a week it's hard to keep up with everyone! @Tazzie , congrats on the wins! You two look great together. And you need a bigger case for your trophies/ribbons. No wonder blue is your favorite color! @6gunkid - you need to come around more often. Your wit is missed. @TuyaGirl - that arab boy is a beaut! Love the ears. The winds look miserable. @ShirtHotTeez - Miss you, too, Lady. Next time you post, bring us up to date. How's your new horse? @PoptartShop - The rescue and riding barn both look like nice places. Working with and riding the rescue horses will be so good for both you and them, plus being able to ride the other horses? Your skills will improve incredibly with all those horses to ride. @TimWhit91 - I know you're missing your baby, but learn to enjoy those annual 3 week vacations. I'm serious. Sometimes we need time for ourselves. And with the opportunity to ride again, let the horses ease your mind.

I confess Summer has arrived in northern Alabama with a vengeance this week. Rain every other day or so and oppressive humidity and heat in between. Between miserable weather, mud and my granddaughter, I haven't done any real riding in 3 weeks! And looking at the forecast, it may be awhile before I get another chance. When I fed last night, I just sort of hung out with the horses while they munched... and was soaked in sweat after 30 minutes. And that was at 8 pm!!! GAH!

Ash's (Mama-dawg's) tumor came back as mass cell. The vet thinks she got it all, but we discovered another smallish (dime sized) lump on her chest. The vet wants to remove it ASAP, just to be safe, so Ash goes back for another surgery on the 12th. We're hoping it can be removed with just a local... my wallet will sure appreciate it. Between vet bills and granddaughter, my wallet is weeping!

Courage is taking just one more step...
