Horses are better than...

"Horses are better than husbands or kids. They eat grass, don't smoke or drink, don't expect an allowance, don't hog the remote, don't waste the whole weekend watching football with their friends, don't talk back to you, don't compare you unfavorably with their friends' owners, don't keep you awake with their snoring --- and no horse ever left the toilet seat up after going to the bathroom."

Got thrown tonight....

I am gonna be one hurtin' unit tomorrow......I'm already sore. Got tossed off a 3 yr old mare at the trainers tonight! TWICE! She did say it was graceful. I even landed on my feet one time! Ughhhhh.....I need a hot bath like never before! Loping on a barrel horse for an hour is hell on the body! Especially when you can't stay on!!!!

Gee'z guess you could say I got thrown in the dirt in more ways than one today!!!!

5K Run this weekend.....

Yep that's right.......I'm gonna run a 5K......well Chelsea and I are going to run it together. It's for a memorial for Kyle, Chelsea's good friend that recently passed away. I'm pretty proud of myself considering I never before would have even dreamed of running a 5K or any sort of run. Quitting smoking a year and a half ago totally changed my life. One of the best decisions I've ever made! Wish us luck........and hope it doesn't rain.

4-H Horse meeting went well tonight.....

Here we go......this coming weekend kicks off the hectic horse clinic/show/practice for the season. Saturday is the beginner horse show clinic....it's mostly for kids that have never shown before....this I think is very good....horse showing is a pretty difficult thing to just jump into without help or knowing what your doing.....and believe me not too many folks are willing to jump in and help out. Anyway Lindsay and Brooke are going to be doing this clinic because Lindsay is still pretty new to showing and Brooke has never shown before.

The 15th is a barrel racing clinic....now this one I'm not missing for anything.....this is right where I need to be! hehe.......should be fun!

First real show of the year is May 22nd. (this is the show I went in a few years ago with Danny and actually placed.....we were excited) Lindsay will be showing this will be her first show with Star. Ohhhhh here come the mom nerves again.......lol........I know I know they will be fine!

..........and the list goes on......will update as it all goes!

April Fools Day pranks......

Ok.....I've managed to find every nasty looking plastic/rubber bug we've ever owned....grrrrr.....Lindsay is having a good ol time with me tonight.......there was one on my laptop.....on the toilet seat.....she stuck one on my cell phone and then called me.....lol......the darn things are everywhere......I have to admit though I got both my girls good tonight......I pulled the rubber band on the faucet sprayer on both of them......hahaha it was great......of course it ended up a mess cuz my kids just get soaked then jump out of the way and let the water go all over the kitchen instead of turning it off after getting soaked.......lol....goofballs! I sooooo wish I could have got it all on video though....would have been good!

Horse/Tack Auction ~ Horsemanship Clinic ~ Riding

The Auction was fun......no I didn't buy anything....lol.....it was definitely interesting.

Horsemanship Clinic was educational and Lindsay had fun ...... we both learned a few things.

Lindsay rode Star for the first time ever......they did good together....she thought is was pretty strange at first since Star is a gaited horse...she's a TN Walker. She got used it fast though and they were in sync really good for the first time. We had just helped Tammy and Brooke move Star to the new barn yesterday so she was a bit tense being in a new place.

It was a good weekend!

Riding was awesome tonight......

I rode my Danny Boy and he was better than ever! I ate dirt 4 times, (part of training) but the whole experience was the best! I'm thinking I'm gonna need some Motrin in the morning though! Ohhhhhhhh I so love riding and my Danny Boy! It was perfect weather for riding too! Ok going to bed now and hoping I will be able to move when I get up....lol.

Workin' out...

Whewwww......oh my goodness is this soreness from working out ever going to go away??? Yes I'm pushin' it a bit because I'm "spring training" for riding season and I wanna be in awesome shape......but I do not remember being constantly sore when I worked out hard core as a teenager! That must be it....I'm just flat up getting old! LOL ...... oh some day soon this will all pay off......at least it better!!!!!!

Dayyyyyymn.....the girl can cook...

Mmmm....mmmmm..mmmmm......I was impressed with myself today. I can cook, but a lot of times if I try something really "from scratch" or "completely new" I don't do very well with it........BUT NOT TODAY.......Ya buddy......I made (with Lindsay's help of course....she's my little chef ) Ham & Bean Soup and Cream of Chicken with Wild Rice Soup........and wow did they turn out awesome! I've never really looked at myself as a good cook but today I would have to say I did very well. I even had enough left over to freeze. Whether or not I can pull it off again....we'll see .

Hope everyone had a great new years! I'm gonna try to not be so stressed out this year........hahahahahahahahahaha....Ohhhh my goodness I almost hurt myself on that one!
