So far this morning I havnt even showered and its almost 11am. Meg stayed home sick today with a stomach bug. So her and Luxor and I are just sitting around watching TV and doing nothing. The husband is pulling a 16 hr shift, yeck, his first, I asked him if he just wanted to prove that he could do it, he said "ya, and the moneys good" did I mention this is a graveyard shift? if he isnt home pretty soon, he is going to pull the full 16. If he does he will be home around 3pm this afternoon, after going in at 11pm.
Last night I hauled Meghan and Rocket to thier first gaming practice. Went well, the coach will not let them run fast and works on position and patterning the horse with all of them, he is a great coach, and still rides games in his ealy 70's. He volunteers all his time to coach the team. They practiced poles, birangle and barrels last night. It was to dark for pictures inside.
Meg yelled at me cuz the light was turning yellow and we still had to go through the intersection, "Mom! just drive!" fast light LOL it was so pretty last night, dont know if you can see it but there is a pink Mt Hood in the middle there. This is at an intersection right in front of our friendly neighborhood Safeway store in town.
I hate that it is dark so early, it only 4:30 here..... winter time. We walk about 200 yards from the parking area to the arena. In the dark and in the rain, it was windy tonight and cold.
Pretty sunset here at the farm, this used to be a thoroughbred racehorse facility, but the owners got out of it, they now only have a few borders. Walking up to the arena you can see the round pen on the left with the track fence on the right, and then the arena itself. We realy appreciate the owners letting the E-team use the facility.
