hoocha hoocha hoocha, LOBSTAH!





Creatures in and about my home.

backyard friend.


look at his feet! ee!



Whoa. What a freak thing. I bought those flowers 2 weeks ago. They have since died, of course. For my birthday, James gave me sunflowers, and the Shooks gave me the same color of daisies. They make such a nice combo!!



What a shiteating look on her face, eh?


Schooling show at Southlake

How fortuitous!

You provide the caption.

This is before he started being naughty.

Some ribbons I won! I got one each of 2nd, 3rd, and 5th, and three 4th places.

a hot. he was annoyed to be holding them for me like that.


That's not actually a riding jakect. It's from Target.


He was being SOOOO bad here! Jeanne and I were laughing about it when this shot was taken.

Congrats on the show :) What classes did you enter?
If you're going to show a lot you might want to track down a cheap riding coat through stateline or something - the longer cut makes a prettier line. I do love the color of your coat though!
And my friends totally make their boyfriends/husbands walk around like that - Chrissy's husband will have TONS of ribbons because he'll have his daughters from the leadline too.
Also I know I should know this but what breed is Fiyero? Quarter horse? The head almost looks thoroughbredy though. So cute!

Wtc and xrails. :)

I hadn't put on my riding coat since I bought it a year ago, and it was goofily too big (not to complain!), so this was the only other jacket I had!

He's full qh, but somehow not ugly! One of his vet records even says qh/tb but his pedigree says otherwise :)

Yay :) I always think it can be so hard to do well in crossrail classes because so many horses don't take them seriously (my horse can be a moron about them!).

There are a lot of really pretty quarter horses - my trainer's show horse is gorgeous - his head looks a little bit like your horse's. Anyway, your boy is adorable! Do you plan to do more horse shows this fall? (I miss showing so much!).

at first... i thought maybe you bought a really, really short show coat. but then i saw that you got it from target. :) CUTE! he looks cute in the naughty pic.

SOON you will be here!!!?!?!?!

Haha. Yeah, I didn't really plan to wear that!

He was snorting and pawing up clods of dirt! Hahah. James got the shot at the perfect time.

Um, TOMMORROW. I'll check flights in a bit, not home yet.

YAYYYYYYYYYYY! then maybe you will come watch me show!!!!!!
