Really! I've been reading everyone's blogs, just haven't seemed to find time to post on mine.
So what have we been up to...
I joined the Northwood Farm winter Facebook challenge, with Lefta, and for the first time in the three times I've signed up I completed it. Had to have some very quick rides (honestly it kinda felt like cheating lol) and had to ride multiple times on a couple days, but we made it. Finished up our last ride at a jackpot which I thought was kinda fitting ;)
Frosty had the winter off after cutting his heel. I won't lie, I was a bit hesitant to get on him this spring after so much time off but he's been a total gentleman *knock wood*
My little Christmas present filly, who was supposed to be halter broke when I got her and she wasn't, is taking a long time to come around. You just cannot get on her right side or touch her right side. Yesterday she discovered that being brushed with a curry is a FANTASTIC thing, as long as it was on her left :/
Lefta and I have made some progress on getting her softer in the face, thanks to some tips from my farrier (he shows in cowhorse and rode with us for a bit one day)
A friend is putting some rides on Odin, he's still green and he and I are just at a point where we're stuck. The plan is to take him to a clinic in June and work with him some more then put him up for sale.
One of my boarders (and a friend) is possibly going to take Voodoo to some barrel jackpots, he's a good confidence booster (despite being a total a-hole at times lol)
And miss Sarita gets to grow up some more this year and then goes to the trainer next spring!
So its time to fess up and tell y'all WHY I've been pretty much MIA lately... Pie and I are trying to sell our house. Yup, we'v...
I haven’t seen Northern Lights in ages. And then the other night there they were! Putting on an amazing show and dancing across the sky. U...
Here's to the land of the shamrock so green, Here's to each lad and his darlin' colleen, Here's to the ones we love dearest ...
