Well I am thrilled to say Fizz did fabulous for her first outing. She handled Medicine Hat like an old pro considering we went cold turkey. We were a bit cautious but she ran right in the majority for times. Rana ended up winning 5th and a nice cheque. Strathmore wasn't nearly as smooth for Fizz and I. Again we weren't able to get into the arena to work barrels inspite of being there plenty early enough. The chuckwagons were practicing until 8am and the slack started at 9am. She was a bit free and didn't handle her turns as nice as usual. (I worked on our brakes today at home and things are feeling great again) Rana and Doc are having a good weekend. They are placing 3rd at Strathmore and she just ran tonight in Abbotsford and is sitting 4th. She's head back over the mountains for Bruce tomorrow at 1pm. Go Rana Go! Also good luck to my favorite barrel racing sisters, Kipty and Kelby. I love to hear updates on their weekends.
My Aunt Trish is down for a few days and we are enjoying spending time with her. She has her horses with her and we've done some coulee riding. The horses sure do love standing belly deep in the creek! Diesel is a gentleman but Fizz will soak you!!
Kassie is as busy as ever. We went to Farmers Market this morning and got our fresh vegetables for the week. I love going there. After market we stopped and got a sandbox for Kassie and set it at the barn. She loves it. I was able to ride while she played.
Nathan has been irrigating the hay which has kept him busy for the past few days. We flood irrigate and he has to change pipes several times a day. Logan gave him a hand today and they did a little fishing down at the river afterwards. Great spots to fly fish. Nate is hooked :D. He is just getting into it and loves it! Logan's the pro though.
Good times were had by all today.
When you have a choice, choose happy! (think you're suppose to leave something inspirational after a blog entry so there you have it)
