E has been tormenting over which horse to enter for the State 4-H Show in September. She narrowed it down to Brother or Pep and had to choose by this week.

For our club's Horse Fest, one of the activities was a cattle working clinic. I had signed up thinking it would be good for Otoelene and me to get some outside instruction and maybe I could get interested in this sorting thing. But due to the weather (calling for more rain) it was moved from our show grounds to the farm where the trainer works an hour away.

Well, the grave road we live on washes too and fills the drainage gully with gravel. Now with my new cart I can go help clean out the drain way to the culvert.
I did have some one watching, but I think they approved.
I had enough from one trip to fill in my hole.

Our local saddle club sponsored a fundraiser ride for St. Jude Saturday. About 35 rider participated and it was a beautiful day. However, when we arrived I was greeted by my friend whose horse had gone down in the trailer as she had pulled into the parking area.

I didn't have anything better to do Saturday afternoon so J took me and Brother to a small show about 30 minutes from the house.
You can see how Brother felt about the situation. There were only 3 classes for us and one ended up being a pattern class of sorts.
We started with Go As You Please Western in which he did awesome. (finally got him clean enough to use our new trophy saddle pad we won last year) But we only made it 1/2 way around the ring both directions and I'm not even sure the judge ever looked at us.
But I guess he saw us in the line up and we got 2nd out of 6. We then went in Open Western Pleasure where we almost made it all the way around using all three gates before reversing. He did good here too getting 1st out of 3. But something in the back corner spooked him and he remembered to be scared of it in the last class.
My hat blew off and when we came back around he made a beeline for it on the ground only to spook at it and take off bucking again. (should have been wearing my helmet and I wouldn't have to worry about losing it) I only got him stopped by about running him into the fence. One of the spectators said I was the only one in the class not holding onto the saddle horn.
