Who can pass up clearance items in Lowe's garden section? Not me.

The biggest garden surprise is that we have anything in the garden at all after how dry it has been here.
What's growing in your neck of the woods?

This was Jordyn's first show. I'm not sure she has even been to a real show to even watch. She was very nervous and wasn't even talking to her parents that morning.

J has been waxing poetic about the start of Autumn so here is our Autumn Horse Show. Our local saddle club had it's fall show Saturday. We took 3 horses and had 4 riders. I worked the secretary booth then ringmastered while J took over my spot in the booth. Then I went to shuffle riders and horses around while J took over as ringmaster.
Stay tuned for mine and Jordyn's results. We sure have been doing a lot of horse stuff lately.

I was out in the yard when I noticed the goats running down the hill.

E started Saturday with the finals in the Sr. Hunter Trail Class. 17 of the original 76 made it to the finals and only 7 completed the course for a placing. This was Hank's first real trail class. They set it up in 1/2 of a small indoor ring making the obstacles very close together adding to the difficulty for a big horse.
Now we can start dreaming about next year.
Update on Pep. She had an abscess finally bust out on her rear hoof. She's getting better now.

We have not fallen off the face of the earth for the last week but it sure does feel like it. As a lot of you know, E has been working hard with her horse Pep this summer. She has had her sights on the State Show and really wanted to do well. Unfortunately, Pep had other plans. On Monday Pep went lame while E was riding her. She has a hoof issue from a previous injury which started acting up. No amount of soaking, pain meds. or antibiotics was going to fix her in time. The two choices E had were 1. not go or 2. take Hank.
Of course, E had to watch all of the classes Pep would have been in and constantly laminated the fact that they would have done so well in them. To which I constantly replied, "Be thankful for what you have."
