Well yesterday I went up to the Mane Event in Red Deer. it was pretty awesome as always. I love looking through all the shopping they have up there. There literally is something for everyone. I went up with nothing specific to buy, but of course that never happens.
The best part was I got to meet Sherry from Fern Valley Appaloosas. That was awesome. She is a very nice person and I had a great visit with her and learnt some stuff too.
We went and watched Curt Pate with groundwork and working the rope. It was okay, but all kinda basic.
That's the only clinician we watched, I'm kinda embarrassed to say I didn't even watch Brent Trout and I know him. But i kinda have a problem with these trainers challenge type events, cause it makes people think it only takes three hours and your horse is ready to go. We all know that isn't true, but if you never started a horse, this could be a big problem and I'm sure people have gotten hurt doing following this.
I was looking around, and I saw a pair of spurs I loved, I have a perfectly good pair I use, but I really liked these ones. I looked at them, left and looked at others, but I just had to eventually get them.
Old ones on boots

New spurs on clean boots
They look so much better and Im sure Bailey will love them as well. I also got a Eeyore cooler, I may try it on her this afternoon and Im sure she will love it as well.
