Happy Halloween!

We had a jackpot today and someone had suggested we dress up. Being that Voodoo is black I opted for Zorro (my cape was tucked, errr crammed, into my pocket for safety lol)

The jackpot was right next door so I had it pretty easy today. I woke up a bit early and fed the ponies, came back inside and had my breakfast, walked over to enter, came back home and when it was time I got costumed up and tacked up and rode over. Love it!!
It was a double header and my first run was slooow. But it was clean and that's what I was working for.
I had talked to Ed Wright earlier this week and he said that even though I knocked 3rd at my last barrel race he was proud of me for cleaning up 2nd. Well now I get to call him and tell him I had two cleans runs and even earned some cash!
Yep that's right, in the second jackpot I sped up enough to place! We got 3rd in the 3D. Still no speed demon (hey THAT woulda been a good costume!!) but we ran 1.5 seconds faster :)
AND we won "best costume" in the Open ("adult") division!

Hope y'all had a safe and fun Halloween!


  1. You did well!...You also look cool, hey? Is that the early snow?

  2. Right next door! That's pretty darn convenient, no packing up and hauling, now I could handle that. LOL

  3. Woohoo, great to win some money, The costuem is pretty cool too, I have always wanted to dress up with my pony but have had nowhere to go.

  4. good job on winning some cash! Great costume too! And brr... I see snow! No thanks! I'd be inside by the fire! lol

  5. Love the costume.

    Wow-personal calls to Ed Wright? I am so jealous!!!
    Good for you and VooDoo.

    I have to tell ya, I have really wanted to attend an Ed Wright clinic, but waffled because of what people said 'could' happen, now, Thanks to YOU, I will be booking into the nearest and soonest clinic of his that I can find.

  6. Love the costume! Congrats on winning cash!

  7. Woohoo! sounds like a great way to spend Halloween. Congratulations on your wins.
