Friday was a pretty good day for Bitsy. As you may remember we had a bit of a problem when we went out on Wed. So, I spent more time with her on the ground getting her to not worry so much about things happening around her. Well, Friday when we went outside for our ride I took her pass the scary large white box. She looked at it but did not show any interest in it. That’s good, in case you were wondering. Then one of the cowboys on the ranch saw us and stopped. In the past, Bitsy would get nervous if she saw a truck or car coming down the road. We rode up to the truck and had a nice visit with Clayton. Bitsy just put her head down and was a perfect lady. We will do more ground work the rest of this week as well as ride. Her mom will be coming this coming weekend to see her and ride her.
The other two boys are doing better and better everyday. The Stallion is pretty easy to catch and will start to wear a saddle this week and we will see about riding him later in the week. The Gray may get ridden today or tomorrow. He is settling down but both of them have a long way to go.
Saturday was the roping at the Way Out West arena. This roping was in Pat Jone’s honor. You may remember that Pat passed away with cancer last year in Feb. Kathy and I went over for a bit and got a chance to see folks we have not seen sense we lost Pat. Brought back some good memories and the proceeded made from the roping will go to Cowboys Against Cancer.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
