I don't think I can form a coherent paragraph.
Life is full, exciting, fun, frustrating, challenging, and rewarding. Yes, all of those things.
Let's just do the list thingie, okay?
2. Monday I drove into Ashland, OR with Theresa, of Camp Runamuck. We met up with Sharon, of Communing With Fabric, who had traveled from the Bay Area to drop her daughter off at college. We helped Sharon deal with her almost empty nest by ...going shopping for fabric! Of course, you say. If you would love to peek into this fun PR meetup day, go to Sharon's blog...because I forgot to bring my camera and I carry a Tracfone. My phone only makes and receives calls, which is what a phone is supposed to do.
3. Woodrow is living full time in the pasture now and officially retired. I switched out his bridle to one which is minimal, and promised him that we would only do what he wanted from now on. This is probably a big fat lie, but it makes both of us feel better right now.
Nick was raised by Theresa, of Camp Runamuck fame, and I am so honored that she offered me the chance to continue Nick's training and give him some new experiences. Nick is a 9 year old Bashkir Curly gelding and is ready for a job in life. He will be my main riding horse and will learn basic dressage, how to camp with people and other horses, navigate trails and generally be a companion. Since arriving at my barn, he has met 21 other horses, learned about mares, been threatened by a grouchy old gelding (not Woodrow), and been ridden in the arena twice. Oh, and a bath, new tack, different rules, lots of people...he is in heaven.
My husband calls it the Horsey Hilton.
Thank you Theresa!!
