Awww. I am sorry about your groin pull. And nuts to the traffic. They are flowers for goodness sake! The video was awesome. And I am star struck that you know Richard Winters by name! We have seen him at quite a few horse expos and my hubby was always a fan of his show when it was on RFD TV

Yea, it was bad on Saturday, but wrapping it Sunday REALLY helped it and it's not so bad today.

Yea, I agree. Many of those people though NEVER get out of the concrete jungle to hang out in nature at all, they only go out on special occasions and end up destroying it all by not playing by the rules. I harped on someone who went off the trail at the poppy reserve one year about staying on the trail. Dopey people.

@carshon , you should go up and talk to him! He's very nice and accessible and is just a regular guy. And his wife is really sweet! I've been to two of his events - 2006 (?) on Star and then 2018 on Pi. And we've run into him alot at expos (when Matt was presenting), I've ridden with him a couple times at Equine Affaire (with Star) and will always go to his cowboy church (he does a great one) when he does it at events. Just a real nice guy. For the longest time he didn't remember my name, LOL, but his wife always did.

We had a funny exchange in the warm up area. I made a comment about him going to Road to the Horse next weekend. He said, yes he was commentating and I said,"yes, I saw the article on you in Western Horseman (March 2019 issue), so had to buy the magazine." He said,"Girl, you NEED to get a subscription to Western Horseman and keep it by your bed to read before you go to sleep - it's MUST reading for all horsemen!" I told him I used to subscribe, then went to online and never read it. He just shook his head and said,"You have to read it." LOL ... funny guy.

Forgot a few things ...

Got two new show shirts! This young lady was selling shirts (High Rank Apparel that have cooling panels in them. Always looking for a way to stay cool in the heat and she was running a deal ($100/shirt at the show; usually $150/shirt) so I bought these:




Stopped at Mormon Rocks for a pit stop and got some nice pix. This is an interesting area just off I-15.

I tell ya, I'm getting old. I completely screwed up my April, so now I can't go to the April Ranch Horse Show to video Scarlett & Matt. The RH show had changed their date from 4/6 to 4/13 & I didn't change my calendar. So I scheduled non-horsey time for those weekends, which are plans I cannot change. I just realized last night that the RH is on 4/13 - a date I cannot change the plans for. Darn it all.

Then May, I'm doing to be dead. CCHA show on 5/4; SCRCHA shows on 4/18 & 19 and CCHA shows on 5/25 & 26 - thank goodness the last show in May is on Memorial Day weekend ... I'll have a chance to recoup on Monday 5/27. But what a fun month. I have the whole month of April to rest up, LOL.

Happy Belated (3/19) 3 yo Birthday to my goofy little spicy firecracker filly, Scarlett! Had no idea how much fun she would give me and the best is yet to come!

Today is Equine Dental day for our Ponies! Our Equine Dentist will be at Matt's today and doing all the horses.

I took Pi up to Matt's last night to spend the night, put a nice ride on her (although still have a slight groin pull - ugh!) and then watched him ride Scarlett. Wish I could have been there to see the Dentist work on Scarlett - it's her 1st Dental visit.

Here's some Pix and video from last night:








Matt is taking Scarlett with him to the Backcountry Horseman 2019 Rendevous:

Boy, things are getting wonky ... the BCH flyer didn't show up and this morning the website was still displaying as if it were yesterday. Weird! Anyway, let's see if this will show up




And then had to share the new filter from GoArt ... LOVE it!

Thanks to Cesar Chavez, we had a three day weekend. Got new internet - yea! So now I can actually watch the NRCHA live stream for all the premier events - the Stallion Stakes are going on now. WooHoo!

Stopped Friday after work to visit a Friend on the way home. The horse she lasted showed in Cowhorse (Jewels Stormy Star) is now retired and in foal to the cutting stallion, [url=https://www.6666ranch.com/en/quarter-horses/stallions/ranch-performance-stallions/bamacat.html]Bamacat[/cat]. She's ready to pop, LOL and we sat out catching up and watching her ...




Saturday I cleaned my den where the modem for the new internet would go, played ball with the dogs and rode Pi. She was pretty fiesty!

Sunday, cleaned more of the house (needs alot since I was sick for a few months), moved hay, watched Pi sun bathe, put little baskets/holders and the affirmation sign my friend (same one above) gave me for Xmas on the tackroom door and tried out the collapsible show cart my sister gave me for Xmas & put a quick ride on Pi and played ball with the dogs.





Monday the internet guy came and we decided that the den wasn't the best place for the modem; decided to put it in the den, which meant I had to clean out the area it was going to go so he could get in there. He was there a couple of hours, but I was ecstatic to have reliable FAST internet!! WooHoo!! Ran to the dump and into town to try to get a few things - none of which I could find; the joys of small town living, LOL. Stopped at Starbucks for ice tea & a snack while watching my friends do their runs at the Stallion Stakes (couldn't get home in time to watch it on my fantastic new internet). Got home and took Pi out for a nice LONG ride ... got a few pix:





And we have a mini-Super Bloom in the hills above my house!


And played ball with the dogs. Khaleesi after:


I have one Cherry tree that is still alive - it puts out some beautiful blooms:


And, the birds got a community bath going:

Finally, got one pix of Matt & Scarlett over the weekend. Matt took her and his horse Dee to the Backcountry Horsemen Rendevous for his clinics/demos - the 1st was on Friday and was Body Control and the 2nd on Saturday was roping. Matt texted that Scarlett was great on both days and made Dee, his bridle horse, look like a greenie, LOL. His wife got a pix from the Saturday roping demo:



Lots of things accomplished this weekend!

It was very cool and windy last night ... Pi was bouncy when I got home:










And the wind didn't deter the dogs from playing ball:
