I have been too busy, and then too lazy, when I do get home, to post some videos.
Here’s a run from the first of June:
Here’s a run from last week:
This Wednesday, I took our interns, Kara and Emily, to the barrel race in Onida, SD.
I ran my gray mare, Nora, and my gelding, Gump.
Nora, being her pretty, pokey self:
Gump making a pretty nice run. I think they just get better!
He must’ve stubbed his toe or some such thing when he stumbled coming out of the first barrel, because when he left the arena he was a tad short on his left hind. I was physically sick for a short time after that run because he hadn’t walked out of it and all I don’t need is another crippled horse. But about 15 minutes later he seemed to be fine which made me feel better.
I didn’t win any money at this barrel race, but I did spend $5 and enter a raffle for 1/4 of a butchered pig and guess what? I won! Oh yeah! I was so excited! Kara, did win some money. In fact, she won the 4D, a nice check, a cool, handmade headstall, and a gift certificate to a western store. She was ecstatic.
The rest of our week was spent riding horses. We handled about 16 horses on Thursday and 21 head yesterday. Needless to say, everyone is busy!
Here’s hoping everyone has a great weekend!
