Somethings only happen in Alabama O.o

We headed on down to Alabama this weekend, on our way to Houston.  We had a great time..
My Stallion ran so hard.. he was asleep laying down in his stall by the time I made it back out there to feed him.  I was really tired.  I was running two horses on 4 stages.. and It was a TON of work..
But, I'm confident in both of my horses that they will do great..and as long as I am focused everything will be lovely :)
Seriously though,  I went to Cocaines stall and found him laying down...  I opened the stall door walked in with him and kneeled by him and started petting him..  I told him he has been doing really great and he was a good boy.. and that I had his dinner all fixed up for him... and he had to get up.. so I walked back out of his stall.... and the joker was just looking at me.. so I put his food down next to him.. and he just started eating it.. haha... He's got such a great personality... I love him so much :)


Here is a video of us :)

So also while In alabama.... Some people were pretty tore up on idiot oil... so much so, that they started taking their clothes off... because he was hot sitting next to the fire... and he was wearing long johns... So Clint asks the fella.. "when you looked at the weather forecast before you got dressed and saw that it was going to be a high of 75 today, at what point did you decide to put long johns on?"  the guy said he liked long johns and he liked wearing them around the house..  hahahahah  You can't make this stuff up...

Got a busy little week before I hop on a jetplane and head to Texas :)
But updates to follow!

Pre-gaming for Worlds

So, My stallion has grown up.. I am so proud of him.. 
last weekend we were in Unadilla Georgia at a competition and he was just as smooth as tennessee whisky..  I had a wonderful time riding him..  He is also who is going to Worlds with me next week.  Him and Cain..

This is something to chew on...
I was standing out there in the warm up arena with my stallion and  we were waiting for our turn to go.. I was just telling someone how I missed maggie, because I knew no matter what happened.. she had my back..  tack breaks, maggie would stop.. she felt me off, maggie would keep me on top....  you get the point...
They call my name, Cocaine and I enter the arena....  We take off.... I had a beautiful first 5, and go to turn a barrel to head to the rundown barrel and he braced against me... I was thinking.. wtf to my head... and I figured out what he was doing...... The bit flipped over in his mouth on one side.. how does this happen you ask?  I didn't tie the bit back together at the end of the shanks.. and it's a myler style port bit...   I had grabbed the wrong headstall when we were leaving the house, and the one I grabbed had a bit on it that was bent, so I untied the joker to get the shank bent back.. and never tied it back... so me riding with loose reins.... the bit flipped and I had no power steering.... so I sat back, and finished a wide turn with my legs.. and just kind of stopped riding... Cocaine picking up on my thinking 50 ways I'm going to break something in this situation thoughts running through my head..... just stopped in the middle of the arena.... I leaned over and started just petting him and telling him he was amazing... I flipped the bit back over and walked out of the arena......   I haven't profusely professed my love for a horse without a little liquid intoxication like that in a long time....  that horse took care of me... I was a proud proud mama at that moment.. He's got my back.... that is for sure...  Maggie, had my back and the two of them are in love...  maybe she told him to take care of me..
I had a disagreement with a horse wednesday and we both ended up on the ground... I put him out with Maggie and she beat the crap out of  him.. :) she's a bruiser hahah

Well, We are headed to alabama this weekend to tune ourselves up for Worlds. My cowboy is going to stay in Alabama, then Monday head to Lake Charles, LA and then to Houston by Wednesday, I am flying out on Thursday.. we are competing Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
That's about all for now...
