"PEDRO" & SAVANNAH

The other day Savannah told me she wanted to ride "Pedro." Okay, so she did and he bucked her off twice, actually she stepped off of him when he would start acting up, but anyway she did it. She was alittle aggravated he was acting that way. We took a video so her Daddy could see her. Yesterday she announced she was going to ride him again and he wasn't going to buck her off! LOL! The previous owner's son used to ride him a long time ago, and she was determined to do it herself. So we set out and she did a great job. She told us she got the buck out the day before! LOL! She rode him around in the lot for about 20 minutes or so! You can tell in the video he is just alittle stubborn! The 1st video is her riding him for the first time! The 2nd video is her riding him a couple of days later!

WHEW!!

It has been crazy around here this last week! This is the first time I've gotten on the computer in a week! Last Saturday hubby had a pasture roping and Sunday Savannah had her 3rd KRRS at church. Then my allergies kicked in on Monday and I was down until Thursday and to top it off she got the stomach bug too!! I don't know what kicked my allergies in, but I'm glad to be back to the land of the living! Look forward to seeing what you all have been up to, missed you guys!

Here is a video of her Mutton Bustin from her rodeo last weekend! She was so excited it wasn't a dud this time! Notice the huge smile on her face at the end!

NOT SO WORDLESS WEDNESDAY!!

Not so WW!! Hope you all are well, busy here, like it is everywhere! Count down till the end of school! We have some event every weekend, it's plum crazy!! Farrier came out yesterday afternoon to replace "Roo's" front shoe that he lost, so he could use him today day working. Well, he picked up the right front foot and he went down in the front end. Dang it! He checked his left front and he had a abscess~double dang! He has not even been limping! He got it open and draining, so that's a good thing. Gave him some bute last night and started Epsom salt soaks, as hubby has a pasture roping on Saturday he will need him for. So "Willis" earned him a trip day working today! Go "Wilis!!" Doing a horse demo at the school tomorrow for K & 1st grades Field Day. We are asked every year to do it and we love too! We love sharing the horses with the kids and teaching them about them as well. Hope you all are having a great week! Love ya'll!!
