Raining at out house!
We got nearly an inch of rain yesterday afternoon. We have not seen it rain like this in nearly 2 years, so we are pretty excited. It kind of slows down the outside riding a bit, but it's worth it.
I'm not sure if I told you but the Gray got a new pair of shoes last Friday. He seems to be ok with them. Need to get him out in the big world and see how he gets along on the rocks.
We are getting ready to take over the barn in Tucson AZ in a couple of weeks. I'm having the axle replaced on my stock trailer after the wheel fell off. That's taking some time cause they had to have one made. Will check on it today and see how they are coming along with it. I need to get a bunch of stuff moved to the new barn. Round pen, horses, saddles and all the training equipment I use, and, I'm running out of time.
I'm looking forward to this chance to be in front of a lot more people and have the chance to help a lot more people. It will be a 24/7 job for a while but it will be worth the effort and time.
I know that no one likes change, including me. I'm going to miss our place here and the solitude. And, I know that the folks at the barn are not excited about this change. They have had their horses cared for a certain way for 7 or 8 years. Having said that, no one has moved out of the barn. I'm hearing that they are willing to give me a chance before they do anything. Kathy and I have a lot to offer folks that "really" want to work on their horsemanship and "really" want what's best for their horses. I was talking to one of my students in Silver City NM, telling her how the folks at the new barn are watching me like a hawk, to see what's going to happen. She was sweet, she said "Once they get the chance to see you work with horses, that will all change." I'm hoping so.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
