It is ridiculously hard to take a picture of him because he's either got his crazy on, or he's sleeping and looks dead. Here's a super quick video from last weekend.
The heat has been a bit of a pain because I've been on poop patrol for the last two days. I start by dragging the sprinklers out to the arena. While they're going, I clean stalls and spray down the barn aisle. Once the stalls are clean, I saddle up horse number one. Before I can actually ride though, I have to go and turn the sprinklers off and recoil the hoses. By the time I actually get on, I'm a bit wilted.
This is just practice for July when I will be doing poop patrol/barn duty for two solid weeks. Toughen up, Sweaney!
The tires had fewer than 12,000 miles on them, but they were at least seven years old. Trailering tip ... keep a better eye on your tires, and drive the posted speed limit. The technician said that had I been speeding, I would probably have had a blowout. Needless to say, I now have a new set of tires. That's going to raise my spending total for next month - better that than a blowout.
Showing: Speedy and I are heading to a show on Sunday where we'll continue showing T1 and T2. We have good times (10:32 and 11:08). The show is in Tehachapi which is only a little over an hour away. I can sleep in a bit, and we'll be home in plenty of time for dinner.
