Weekend Update

As if, I wish I was as funny as the SNL crowd.
First of all, shout out to the hubby who won one in Phoenix!
Zoom zoom!
Saturday included work at the tack store, new jeans at the farm supply store (on super sale), visit with Grandma, and then finally the rain stopped and I went and rode Diva and Mojito!
 I made an elevated pole (we can't really call that a jump) and Diva was as thrilled to go over it as I was.  She was also a thousand times more coordinated than the last time we jumped (months ago), yay for being a more spatially aware 5 year old.
Shameless selfies, totally Diva's idea 

Gotta love the OTTB shirt and Equestrianista necklace (thanks for the bling mom!)
Why hello Diva
 Mojito was stubborn to start and then he was a star too.  We just walked over the pole though.
Here comes another rain storm

He loves to snuggle


He even let me use my phone to video while we steered one handed!

Then Sunday I did lots of homework, the dishes, got some groceries, rode Gunner and Courage in the rain, fed my guys in the rain, cooked dinner and cleaned tack with sprinklerbandit (and it was still raining outside).  Courage was a rockstar, I even used spurs for part of the ride.  While he dealt with them I also had to be just a bit careful so I took them off so we could really get to work.

We also got some video, including a hilarious spook!  I'm pretty sure it was caused by the bunny.  There will be cantering video eventually as well, but I will leave that for sprinklerbandit to share:)



All in all, a fun weekend.  Tomorrow look for some more food and kitten pictures as it is still raining so probably not much riding is going to happen.

  8. Fun weekend!!! I wondered as I watched the video- where is the spook? Did I miss it? Nope. I did not miss it. And it was awesome!
