This song by Sugarland probably describes my life best right about now.
Sorry for the absence I have been terribly busy, depressed, excited and now neutral.
Since the convention I have been swamped with Ranch horse doings and meetings and trying to get ready for our first show in May. I say "our" meaning the club not Frankie and I. Sad to say I have not been on him since I brought him home. The weather as of late has been cold, or cold wet or just plain gross. This week is shaping up nicely and I am riding today and the rest of the week come hell or high water.
The depressed part was of course the parting with my boy Tank. I want to let you all know I appreciate your kind words for me. I also want to let you know he is doing fabulous with Ms. Linda. She has ridden him bareback already and promises pictures for me to share with you soon. I know he is in a great place and I am feeling better about it every day.
The excited part was the thought of getting my judges card and a really cool job at the horse park. I felt pretty good about both of those, unfortunately I only got an apprentice judges card and the job at the horse park did not pan out. Sigh.......
I am OK with all of it. Must mean something bigger and better is going to come along. I did get a judging job for May here locally for an open show and am looking forward to that.
Well now you are caught up and I promise to not go away for so long next time!
