Catch up and Tunica

Soaking Ragnar's foot...
Ragnar has an Abscess and I wasn't able to take him to tunica...  I was going to take Nutter Butter... who is a brother to our stallion, but not as big as him.. and was just broke to ride the past 60 days-ish....

Nutter Butter

Now Nutter butter is named his name because he's a bit of a flighty nut case but he rides like butter...
as in.. he's cold backed as hell... it's a fight to get the saddle on him, but, he's like buttah when you ride him.. haha.. I really like this little fella..

I like to title this one Men at Work

I got some bee hives....  I guess I'm a queen bee now!!  hahah..

Checked on the cows the day before Ragnar had an abscess..

3 of the babies we caught up from the broodmares...

Jesus.... (hey-zooos) hah

so this was all before Tunica...

I came home from work Tuesday night about 7:40 and my Cowboy told me he wanted to leave for Tunica tonight... and I said ok.. so I hurried up and packed my shit up.. I put maggie on the trailer... not before she stomped and smashed my darn toe....  Clint said that Maggie was thinking... "if you want to ride another horse you can walk like him too"  and off we went...
we had to stop off at a truck stop and spent the night in the semi...
then headed back to tunica... 
we had to stop twice because we were blowing engine oil all over the truck and trailer... and they found out that it was a lose cap on some gear box...
so we made it to tunica...
the next day.. I was brushing maggie explaining how sorry I was that she was here.. and the skunk head butted me in the nose... I went flying out of the stall backwards.. I thought that she broke my nose.. I was fuming....
Well, then comes the first stage... I thought I was going to hit the dirt..  because I finished the stage with no stirrups...  that was the roughest ride I had ever taken on her...So she screwed me out of the nationals the first day...
Then the next day....  Maggie about come unglued in the middle of the arena...so  much for being scared the day before.. I was praying I didn't come off at that moment....  and I lost a stirrup in her crow hopping that I wound up spurring her because I was trying to Hang on... ugh..
So I scratched the match.. and left meanie in the stall...

I set up shop in the aisle way and helped people and their horses.. :)

we drove back Easter Sunday...
and got back around 7pm-ish...

That's about all so Far..
Lunch one day in the Horse Trailer
