Just a little update on whats happening. The guys had a fun time at the Stavely Pheasant Derby. They were located west of Stavely in the beautiful foothills. I can only appreciate it from pictures. Nathan came close to winning a riffle in a draw, only a few numbers off. Other than that no prizes.
Kassie is enjoying her new horse Jake. She got to show him off to her cousins this past Saturday. They all came over and rode, lead and brushed him. He is a little gem. I am so pleased we got him. He was so well behaved with all of the activity.
The Hollingworth's are staying here for a few days. Its been nice to have them as guests. Wacey is going to stay and ride while Rick and Jodi head down to Montana for the American Thanksgiving.
Kareen Warren also just arrived. She is going to be staying for the winter to help us ride and she'll also be doing some substitute teaching. Looking forward to the winter months and jackpotting!
Rana is going to be heading out soon. She's meeting Brittany in Vegas and will be looking after the horses. There is a very busy schedule for the competitors and Rana will be incharge of feeding, exercising and general care for the crew! Go Brittany Go! We're cheering. Kassie has a new spring horse, well new to her, its our old one. He's a palomino and has been renamed Duke!
I went to a jackpot barrel race on Sunday with Pickard. We ended up just having time only's but he ran a 14.6. The CRA rodeo the day before was won with a 14.7. Not bad for 3 months of barrel work. I sure do like the little guy. I am expecting some ups and downs but considering the rap he had he's been fantastic! I am working on Rana to get some video's of him up.
Hope you all have a good week. I want to wish all of our American friends a very happy thanksgiving. I am very THANKFUL to call you my friends
