My first love...


There was a barrel race up at the TRAC today. Two actually - it was a double header. I didn't enter, because I haven't ridden Angel since October.

But I hauled her up there and rode around for two hours. A little trotting, a little loping, and a whole lot of walking.

It was warm in the morning, then it was like a cold front moved in, the wind changed to out of the north, and I got COLD! Angel got WARM! Poor out-of-shape darling!

Anyway, she did fine, though she was sort of spooky ever time we rode past the teeny tiny pile of sand in the warm-up pen. But then she's always goofy, more so when she's fresh!

I was surprised that people who know me and know her actually came up and asked if Angel has been on a diet and that she looks good! Angel HAS been on a diet, but I didn't think that she'd been making any progress.

All in all, despite the cold, I enjoyed myself and the time with my horse.

Some days are just good days. 'nuff said!

Glad to hear you are getting in some fun with your horses!

Winter really will be over some time!
