V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N !!!!!

I'm on vacation! This is the weekend of the BRN4D Northwest Finals - 4 days of barrel racing, friends, shopping, drooling, and FUN!!!

My friend Candice flew in Wednesday afternoon from Minnesota. She's here to watch, ride, talk, shop, etc.

Yesterday, we went on a road trip to the Boise, ID to pick up Caddis Cool Dorado, aka Bullwinkle! He's a 14.1 hand MONSTER yearling, sired by Cathy's VLC during the night of a fencing failure. While stunning, he's SO mis-proportioned! Two year old body, big knees, teeny-tiny feet. Now I know what Cathy meant when she talked about her BYG - mutant. He's just going to look funky for the next year or so.

He loaded without hesitation, hauled quietly, and unloaded with a little hop. Mary did such an amazing job with him!

I have a few barrel racers staying at my house for the weekend. I love having the Kenyons (Kenyon Barrel Horses) because they are truly wonderful folks!

Our schedule for the weekend is W-I-D-E open, with nothing to do and all day to do it. I'm looking forward to a very fun weekend!

I will TRY to get updated pictures. I just wish my stupid computer would post them in the blog!

What's this about your friend getting dumped on the road??!?! Who dunnit?

Squirrel dun it. She was freaked out by a pony. Lost her mind. Buck, buck, rear. Candice said "Fuck THAT!" and slid off. Then Squirrel stepped on her foot and knocked her down. She was naughty!

Yeah, the Big Gold Yearling is now a Big Gold Two Year Old and FINALLY looks good! He looked RIDICULOUS as a yearling. It's just how it goes with those horses that are going to be very tall when grown.
