Monday Blahs

So my next show is this weekend, the 4th and 5th.  All sounds good, lessons are going well, until now.
(temp was 25 C on Friday!, too bad it was back down to 3 C today)

We have to go to a funeral in Peace River on Thursday and so for the next 3 days I will be gone as it is a 10 hour trip up there.  I am kinda in a panic.  I went to a lesson today and I worked a cow and the first cow was really good then the next 2 not as good, so we went and worked the flag and that was better, he was trying to mix her up and in the meantime mixed me up, lol.  She was stopping short on one end and too far on the other so he was changing stopping distances to get her to even up and it was hard!  But we got it pretty well.  I sure would like to go to another lesson this week and he said I can come Friday if we get home early enough but I have my doubts :(

I got out the white trailer, it hasn't moved in a long time, but the stock trailer is still broken which annoys me but I had an appointment yesterday to take my white trailer in to get a wheel alignment.  And while it was there I got them to hang the door caddy.  That was perfect.  So I used it today and it worked well.  Still not sure its exactly what I want but I will probly end up using it this year and then will see.

I took a couple videos of Jessie drinking water out of the sloughs one day, don't know why she wanted the water so much, her pen had lots but oh well, she was standing in water and drinking it so whatever.

Also saw some antelope on the road one day as I was leaving, and so I stopped and took some pictures of them, they are so curious they just can't help but look at me so they always take good pics.

That trip north IS a long one. I think horses like the soft water in the spring, especially if they've been on well water all winter like ours have. All the best on the show......sometimes the rest and getting away from it all pays off so don't panic.

SOmetimes you have to just grit your teeth and get through it. We all make mistakes, but having someone there to coach us through it is how we learn. Have a safe trip up north and back home and Good Luck at the show. Remember to breathe and you should be fine. It's supposed to be FUN!

thirsty girl! Good luck at the show, maybe with less practice you will be fresher for it? sometimes works that way too
