I got home and since my trailer was stuck in snow, Neil had to pull it out with the tractor and he almost never made it, I unpacked most of my suitcase and repacked a bag for the clinic. I also got everything ready in the truck for Jessie. She is much easier to pack for than me cause she always gets the same stuff. I headed up to Madden Saturday morning bright and early and it took less time than I thought so I was there early, but it was kinda nice to just have a bit of time to relax.

The next morning I headed back to the clinic and we worked with the cows from yesterday just practicing cutting a cow out from the herd. It was really neat, and boy did I forget a lot, I had a real hard time but I eventually got it. Then we did one more pass on the flag and it was good then one more time we worked a single cow, we had 3 each. The first one I had a real hard time getting ahead of it on the ends, but as soon as I got there it slowed right down and then I went on to the second cow. I was better at getting to the ends and my stops starting coming together, so we just stopped there. I was still having trouble getting her to stop straight but it was better.
Then I got Jessie untacked and we headed home. She was tired and so was I, it was a good clinic and I learned a lot. I am so glad it was much better than last year, I almost wasn't gonna go but since Doug and another lady I didn't know were hosting it I thought I would try again. I'm glad I did, got me back in the mood for cutting again, and hope to go for more lessons this week and to the first show on April 6/7. I listed all the shows this year, I would like to go to all the ACHA shows (except Kamloops) and maybe some central shows, but we will see how it goes
