Annie May got her annual hair cut today. She is such a good dog. I can shave her with out restraining her at all. She's quite patient about it and I actually think she enjoys her summer hair cut.
|After her bath she decided to try being a lap dog|
|The towel is by far the best part of a bath|
|It's so much fun to play with...and getting dried off is kinda nice too.|
I found out tonight that Adrienne Lyle and Wizard are going to the Olympics! A group of our barn saw their freestyle at Devonwood last year. It was incredible. Here's the link http://youtu.be/AJZXZakPJfE.
I saw this online a few nights ago and think it is so true! Sometimes you wonder why you even bother but the thought of walking away just doesn't work either.
Somewhere behind the rider you've become,
the hours of practice you have put in,
the coaches that have pushed you,
the hard falls you've taken,
the money you have spent,
the long distances you've hauled,
the "normal" things you've given up,
the strides, the sweat, the tears, the blood,
the blisters, the ripped jeans,
the suede chaps on 100 degree summer days,
the lame horse, the crazy horse,
the "are you serious?" horse and everything in between,
Somewhere behind all of this is a little girl who fell in love with the sport,
the horse, the idea, and never looked back
