Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.

Is this thing on?

**taps microphone**
Today's feature is the interview by Laughing Orca Ranch. To keep it relevant I'm going to keep all the answers horse based, when possible. (hope that's okay with you Lisa)

LOR: Talk about your proudest moment.
CC: I have a few different moments. I think one of them would be winning my first (so far only) buckle. It was in a points series and was for winning the 3D. I also felt very proud when I managed to work through the issues that Applejack and I were having last summer on the barrel pattern. Oh, and being able to buy my "new" truck for hauling the horse trailer, cash down paid in full.
LOR: Talk about your most embarrassing moment.
CC: That would probably be when I went to my first ever barrel racing jackpot. We were warming up in a field off to the side of the arena. Loping down the fenceline I went to turn left, Cessa turned right instead and I came off. Cessa took off for the arena, or more likely the trailer parked on the other side of the arena. Kimfer stopped to see if I was okay but I was more concerned with my horse running off to the arena and asked her to go get her. I did NOT want my horse showing up at the arena without me!
LOR: If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
CC: Kimfer & I are planning a horseback riding vacation in Greece! I am looking forward to it very much. I'd also like to go on one of those "City Slickers" type vacations. Or to go horse camping.
LOR: Have you ever swam naked? Where?
CC: I don't really swim. I'm a bit afraid of water so I never go in water that is past about neck deep.
LOR: How many pairs of shoes do you own?
CC: I currently have about 6 or 7 pairs of riding boots. Yeesh, never really thought about it! You just had to make me face that didn't you! lol If it makes things any better 2 of them are winter ones.
LOR: What is the most daring thing you've ever done?
CC: Riding bareback. I know, I know, it doesn't sound that daring. But I have a very poor sense of balance so for me that is pretty daring! lol I also thinking team sorting with the fresh cows this past fall was pretty daring, those things were c-r-a-z-y!
LOR: What is the funniest thing you've ever seen?
CC: One spring the horses were all feeling very frisky and were running 'laps' in the pasture. They'd come running to the barn, pass the barn down the fence line and back. Kimfer's gelding, Baron, was a youngster at the time. One lap he lost his footing and fell down on his butt like a sitting dog. He slid a little ways, jumped back up on all four feet and ran off. But for a split second he darted a look at us and you could almost read his thoughts "That did NOT happen! You will NOT tell the other horses!" I've never seen a horse look soooo embarrassed! (yes we were laughing at him)

  1. Terrific interview answers, L!

    Oh! I so wish you would have videotaped Baron's butt sit slide! What a riot. :D

    Please promise that you'll take tons of photos while you're in Greece and come back to share your trip with everyone, ok? I'm so excited for you!

  2. The question was how many pairs of shoes do you have, not how many boots, do you have normal shoes? Do they have those in Canada:-) jk,
    I think I have about 10 pairs of shoes and wear only 5.

  3. Denise - I was going with shoes meaning footwear in general. I was trying to avoid the actual "shoes" count. I'm not sure of the number, but I know its over 30. *sheepish grin*

  5. lol!! That butt skid sounds hilarious. You can never have to many shoes. I'm not really a girly girl, but I have a ton of shoes too. I seem to get one here and there and never wear them out, so they just keep accumulating.
