Since today is officially my Birthday, Mum said I could have the day off and that I wouldn't have ANY lessons today!! She came up to the barn after my grazing time to say HELLO! She asked me to back out of the stall, into the paddock to be respectufl...she asked me to wait in the paddock while she got the poop bucket...I stayed in the paddock even though my stall door was WIDE open and she was no where to be seen! I tried to help her clean, but I didn't knock over the poop bucket. She appreciated that. Then she picked my footies and did some brushin'.... Dads worked with me today too! I was very polite and respectful of Dad too!! I waited in my paddock while Mum mixed up my Grain and put it in my pan. I didn't move a hoof until she said it was time...Then I quietly walked in and munched it! When Mums had to get back through the stall, I backed away from grain time and waited until she was done doing stuff. I was a very polite, quiet, grown-up Young Lady today! (I had to giggle though...Mum said NO LESSONS today and she ended up reinforcing about a Hundred Lessons today!) chEARS!! Hope you had a Happy Day!!
It Is My THIRD BIRTHDAY!! Last year on my second Bday we were at Happs having A BBQ to support a young Cowgirl that got hurt in a cutting competition...This year we are going to have a benefit Tack/Rummage sale for a great group call Cowgirl Spirit Rescue Drill Team! Mum Cancelled the sale because we THOUGHT it was going to rain all day. Huh...No Rain...but we WILL reschedule for August! In the mean time....Enjoy my shenanigans today! It was AWESOME!! Since I haven't been in a pasture for a long while, I wasn't very keen on Mum "catching me" two weeks ago....made Mum VERY sad! After 4 sessions on the pasture (cause of the horrible rain) I now run to Mum!! I came to her 8 times and let her clip my lead rope on no prob! (If you could have seen my silliness 2 weeks ago you would be amazed) and then I came to her, let her clip me up and lead me all the way across the pasture to my paddock in a web halter...no resistance, no goofiness...nothing. Mum says I gave HER a birthday prezzie! Last week I was rearing and having a heart attack when it was time for me to come in!!
Thank you SO much Miss Artimis!! You such an amazing artist!! Look everyone! I got a very special drawing today that made Mum and I both SMILE! Our friend Artimis made me a special picture from when I was a little bitty baby! Isn't she so creative!! You picture for us put a Rainbow in Our World! Thank You!! Keep up the great work with your art!
Many Thanks to Mark and Jan for hosting an epic weekend for Mitch and JoLinn Hoover!! And many blessings ot Joe and his support team for setting up a great trail course and judging the event!! Mum and Dads left me at home this weekend, cause we all needed a rest, but you know what? Mum learned SO MUCH from Mitch and JoLinn without me even being there! And Mum got to hang out with her peeps and let her hair down! She made a batch fo Mule Snot Shots...! She says..."STELLA TESTED....COWBOY APPROVED!! And no...I've never ahd one........and even though Mum is in alot of pictures, sometimes she is just pretending!
Mum and Dad had a great time and were very happy to help a great friend! Oh...and Mitch let Mum ride Buster! What as honor that was!! She was so happy to be riding that she forgot that she had a hitch in her get-along and ended up limpin' all day Sunday!! Mum was still super flattered! I was so happy to see Mum and Dad when they got home! I gave her all sorts of lovin'!! She is still
