Savannah & "Angel"

I think I've lost my horse! I took this video at her rodeo this month! She has now started loping and she just loves it! I'm so happy to see how much confidence she is gaining! I'm very proud of her and of "Angel!"

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!!

SHE'S BACK HOME~WOO HOO!!!

"Shelby's" back safe and sound at home! Hubs picked her up on his way home from work this morning. He called and told me she was p*ssed at him and wasn't giving him the time of day! LOL! Of course he is the one that dropped her off on Tuesday! She came in the door of the house and straight in to my lap for a solid hour! I think she may have missed me! Just got through giving her a bath and cleaned up. She has been in a pen outside with him for 5 days! I told hubby she probably thought she was in h*ll! She is used to sleeping inside, normally in the bed! I'm glad to have her back and will keep you all posted! And to answer PG~the normal gestation for a dog is 60-62 days. Hopefully real soon we will be posting some puppy pics!

Off to get ready for tomorrow, it is our play day after church. They are calling for rain, but I hope it holds off as Savannah really wants to ride! Have got to get hubby's dinner ready for tomorrow, as he is working nights.

I wish each and every one of you mom's~HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!! Love ya'll and hope you are having a blessed weekend!

I MISS MY GIRL!!

Man I miss this! I miss my girl being here with me! Nothing has happened to her, she is away getting bred to our friend's Hanging Tree Dog~Chuck! Hubby dropped her off on Tuesday and was supposed to pick her up this evening and bring her home. Well, he called this afternoon and said they wanted to keep her until Saturday to increase her chances of being bred.

Okay I guess I can/will have to live with that! Little Cowgirl wasn't real happy when I told her it would be another few days before she came back!! She does everything with me and I have missed her bunches the last few days! She is such a great companion! Who couldn't love that face!??! Needless to say we will be counting down the days till we can go get our girl!! Miss ya "Shelby" & love you bunches!

We had a Sort & Doctor event at church last night. You had to sort 3 head and rope the 3rd. And our team took 1st! Way to go guys! We had alittle trouble on the ground, but still got it done. Normally what happens when hubby and I ride together is not good! I swear it's like we can't win when we ride together! We have been getting better though! It was a great time and I was glad the weather held off to have the event. We are supposed to be having Church in the Dirt this morning, but it is raining now! Hope you all have a blessed Sunday!
