After lots of time and ink and copying and sorting ( most of which was done by Maribelle) all the paperwork for the Paso Fino National Show has been completed and sent in. Also completed and sent in yesterday was all of our stallion write ups for the Breeders Sweepstakes Catalog. Maybe, just maybe, I'll get to spend time at the barn today!
The countdown is pretty much on for our National Show in Memphis. We will hit the road early ( very early!) on the 23rd of Sept. Yikes, that's just over 7 weeks from now! I remember at this time last year I was doubly busy, as I was also prepping Calif for his performances at the World Equestrian Games.
We had a new steer delivered here yesterday. Lars, the steer we already have here, was really getting a bit lonely being the only bovine on the farm, and had gotten into the bad habit of going walk-about and visiting the neighbors Holsteins. Hopefully he will settle down and both of them will stay in the fencing. We have both corraled next to the indoor right now.
Here is the list of items that Over the Hill Farm could use. Gift cards for Lowes,
Home Depot, Agway, TSC, Dover Saddlery, Stateline Tack. English saddles, bridles,
grooming and first aid supplies, IHR helmets, half chaps, boots etc in junior
and adult sizes. They do plan to re-build, but in the meantime the donation of these items will help them to continue with their lesson program and help get them through this very hard time. Anyone wanting to drop off items to be donated may drop them here, either myself or Rachel will take them to Over the Hill. I will also make another run out to them after our Extreme Cowboy Race on Aug. 13th.
