Happy August! I'm so happy to be home again, with no plans of going anywhere for awhile. Traveling is enjoyable, but being on the road for so long gets tiresome. It's great to be home.
This weekends CMSA Match went very well. Joe and the Island Long Riders hosted a wonderful match at the Malibu Dude Ranch in Milford Pa. I competed with both Cardillo and Calif and both stallions did very well. Calif hasn't been shot off of in a very long time, and he took it all in stride. Cardillo and I ended up winning the Ladies Level 1 Division in the 2 Stage Match! Cardillo has really come a long way, and we're looking forward to our next match on Aug. 21st.
Rob managed to get all the cut hay baled up before yesterdays rain. We were busy unloading it while keeping an eye on the sky. Dark clouds came rolling in when we were nearly done, and we managed to get the last wagon pulled into the hayloft shortly before the rain hit. Wont be long and we'll start putting in some second cutting.
As a reminder, we will be hosting an Extreme Cowboy Race here on Aug. 13th. Start time will be 4:30. No entry fee, but please bring along a donation for Over the Hill Farm.
