Monsoon June...and July??

Posted by walterquarterhorses on July 11, 2010 at 12:13 PM

I am not going to complain about the rain.  Thats right.  I am a farmer.  Too much rain is better than a drought.  We haven't had a hay crop like this ever!  Our crops have suffered from the excess rain but at least we got all the seed in the ground which is better than alot of western Canada.  The sunshine is going to help for sure.

Rana is up in Pool B at Calgary.  She starts this Tuesday.  We had a few fun days prior the the action with Brittany Pozzi and her boyfriend Kamry and vet Marty.  Kamry flew up here to visit and we took them to Waterton.  They canoed out on Cameron Lake...Brittany wasn't paddling much until a race was mentioned and then look out!  The canoe was so close to tipping that I'm not sure how it managed to stay upright.  Needless to say everyone was wet. 

There have been a number of jackpots scheduled to go to but the rain keeps cancelling them.  I did get to Raymond this past week.  Rana won 1 and 2 on Hitch and Reecie.  I ran Fizz for the first time in forever.  It was our first run outside too.  She made a nice smooth trip.  I am hoping that Tabers jackpot Monday is a go...rain, rain, rain.  I need work out a few things with myself.  Brittany helped me a little and I think she's totally right.  :)

Our mares are all done foaling and we have a very nice crop of babies.  Twelve in total.  That equals lots of work in a year or two. 

Here's to a HOT July and fast times in Calgary (Rana!)
