Does anyone else feel like they can't get as much done as they used to? I swear I used to get a lot more stuff done in less time. I must be slowing down in my old age
It's been a good spring. I went to Montserrat, Missouri to watch the Montserrat Poetry Festival. It was wonderful to meet dA friends I already knew and to meet some new friends as well. I hope the festival will be able to continue and I can go back again and again. Thanks so much to
for all of his work on the festival and his wonderful hospitality. Thanks as well to
for making the trip to Missouri extra special. I hope we can all meet up again in the future.
The next big adventure took me to Farmington, IA for a colt starting competition. I drew a 4 year old, sort of halter broken filly in random draw. Then I had three hours to start her under saddle on Saturday. On Sunday I had 45 minutes to work with my filly before riding her in an obstacle course. It was a really interesting challenge. I thought I did pretty well with the filly I got. I'm looking forward to giving it another try next year.
Many thanks to River Valley Lodge www.rivervalleylodgeandcampgro…
for their wonderful hospitality and horses. Also, a huge thank you is in order for
for his help, support, and picture taking skills. Maybe next year I'll bring along a horse of my own so I can use the Horse Wash.
The horse business is slowly picking up. My horses are making huge strides in their trainng. School is out so I get to spend almost every day at work with my daughter. It's wonderful to spend so much quality time with her. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I love her because she's my daughter. I like her because she's just a great kid and a lot of fun to be with.
Anyway, I'm off to work. I've procrastinated too long already.
I will be catching up slowy but surely on dA if it kills me.
