My New Year's Wish for you

Hi All, been exceptionally quiet here hasn't it? Not by choice, you know that is just not me!

My Internet connection has been on the fritz since Christmas day. You see when you live out here in BFE your choices are limited. I had dial up and it was painfully slow, DSL is nowhere near this locale, satellite is just to darn expensive for me to play so that leaves this air card thingy. It had been working well, not high speed but beat the crap out of dial up. Until......the past week, it sucks not being able to blog or worse than that, read your blogs. But, it appears I am back in action today at least.

Did get to go and visit Frankie on Saturday and he is progressing so well I cannot believe it. I did sneak a quick ride on him after Cory was finished and boy is he athletic, I mean the boy can collect up like no body's business. I think I could lope him in a tea cup! He was pretty winded so I did not push him much just wanted to see the difference from the last time I rode him which was before Thanksgiving.
I see great things for this boy!

I also got to see Harley and his new girl while I was there. Abby is doing a great job with him and I bet he is wishing he still lived here! She rides almost everyday and is one tough little gal. I gave her a sign that I made with Harley's name on it, she was so gracious you would have thought I gave her a gold bar.

I neglected to tell you that I was voted President of the Indiana Ranch Horse Assoc.
earlier this month and that is keeping me busy. I am securing facilities for our shows next year and working on show bills and budgets. Fun stuff! I am also cramming for my upcoming judges seminar and test in February for the American Ranch Horse Assoc. The convention is in Lexington Ky this year.

Before I leave you to tear down yet another Christmas tree, (I am on number 5) here are my New Year's Wishes for all of you:

1) Keep your saddle tight!











2) May you enjoy many a good rides and have fun!










3) May you always have good friends near!











Thanks for being my blog buddies this year and may you all have a happy and healthy 2009!

Yes, we've missed you! Have you checked into WildBlue? I'm paying $50 a month and it's really pretty good.

Frankie sounds great! I bet you can't wait to get him home.

Good luck with your Association...that's a tough position, but I'm sure you'll do a great job.

Love your Gumby and Pokey!!! Thanks for the good wishes and Happy New Year to you too~~

Congrats on being elected prez. That's a super big deal. And good luck on all your preparations, too.
You'll do fine...no worries.

So, you' ve been MIA with the computer...and I've been on overload. Seeing's as I've got all this free time on my hands, I don't have a whole lot else to choose from. Besides this bum knee, I'll probably end up with carpal tunnel syndrome to boot!

Thanks for the New Years Wishes. Right back at ya.

I look forward to reading about all the upcoming horse activities you'll ben involved with.

I just can't help it, loping in a teac cup gave me visuals of those teacups at Disneyland with a horse loping around inside. I think I must be a sick puppy!

Glad to hear that Frankie is doing well and that Harley has to tow the line....poor baby.

Sounds like you're going to be really busy this year. Good luck with all of that. I have done my turn with that kind of involvement, it is draining......

Hope you have a great New Year!

It was fun to catch up on your blog! I love the photo of the kids on the donkey! And those decorated trees are lovely - enough to give anyone the Christmas spirit. I also like the photo of Frankie. Looks so approachable....
Happy new year!
