Sorry for the delay in entries....like we said before...we have been mowing! Seriously, things have been busy here as always. We have been riding the horses and hauling to Masterson. The last show that Anne and I went to was at Richmond and that was before we went to Colorado. Both boys did great. When we got back we heard that the arena we normally practice in had been quarantined for Strangles so that put a bit of a damper on our practice. Drifter is just learning barrels so he definitley needs the practice. Dually is pretty set as far as the pattern is concerned but he does need to be on the barrels some as well so we haven't hauled to any shows since Colorado. We have been going to Masterson and doing conditioning work as well as continue to sharpen them both up on flexion and making sure they both remain supple. Tomorrow we will head back to the arena and then hopefully hit a barrel race next weekend. Other than riding we have gotten to spend quite a bit of time with our family and friends. We celebrated our nephew's birthday on June 6th and it was so great for the family to be together. We had company come in this past weekend and we have a busy week this week with friends coming over to hang on the deck and catch up. Always something going on out at the farm. Summer is definitely here and we are busy as ever, of course we love it!! Okay, we will check back in soon!
Here is a video of me and Dually loping the pattern at Richmond:
