Six-count 'em - SIX- more days!

I didn't show much last year- no job ya know.

This year I figured, "Yippee! Good JOB! Back to the Show Pen I will go!"

Insert sound of squealing brakes and shattering glass here.

But unless something changes- soon- it will be a summer like the last one- sans Horse Shows.

AND another BUT...

...At least I entered, and paid for, ONE show already- and it is approaching fast!

Six more days to be exact.

Now you would think that a year just practicing would make me just awesome this year.

I beg to differ.

Although Desi and I are better than we were before- we still have so much to learn!

We are too speedy through the obstacles....

Sometimes we get sloppy in our walk overs....

We haven't practiced the back throughs enough...

My memory isn't what it should be...

ON the plus side ( cuz you know me- there has to be a plus side)

We look pretty good physically...

We are determined to enjoy this experience!

All of my horse showing girlfriends will be there.

The next few days will be spent getting everything organized for the show. It feels like forever since we've been anywhere! Luckily I keep all my show equipment in one place- easy to get to.

It is suppose to be 80 degrees here today and I think that will be true which translates to BATH TIME!
No rain is forecast for the next week either- BONUS!

Perhaps I'll even be able to get a few photos! (what a concept!)

Speaking of photos- I did manage to get a few yesterday.
It was Mimis's birthday! She turned 26.
We all went to a nice lunch in a local restaurant. Daddy Jesus paid!
My girls looked georgous as usual!
And LC was an angel ( when isn't he?)
When we got home, Mimi had a box of flowers on the porch- sent from her friend in Iraq!

WHOO HOO! We are gonna have a blast!!! This is the true "Girls Gone Wild"! I can't wait. The Giant Jack Ass is a few days short on getting ridden with me being sick, but I am really excited. It's almost here!

Ride 'em, girl. And give hugs to your cuties. They are an obvious positive side to anything, yes? XOX

Cones. You forgot to practice cones.

What a beautiful family!!! Your girls are gorgeous and little LC is soo cute. He is the sweetest of peas. I'm going to be keeping my fingers, toes and eyes crossed for you. You'll do fine I just know it.

I went out to the barn today, to have my picture taken. I'm still deciding about that.I'd just come from the physical therapist and Kitt had been rolling in the dirt. We're a couple of cuties, let me tell you.

But something interesting happened. We're in a barn with warmbloods and thorourbreds, and the barn manager told me, "I turned the girls out today and Kitt beat everyone in some kind of race and she was turning on a dime." Well hello, this is what barrell racing quarter horses do best. She is incredibly fast and she can turn on a dime, but what is better for me is that she is the most loving, best tempered girl on the planet.

I'm still making up my mind about whether I should put the two of us out there when we're not looking our best.

Six days, that's pretty cool!

Warm enough to bathe is cool too. Wish it was that warm here. Have some ponies who could use a bath.

Good luck at the show! AND HAVE FUN!!!
