    Depends on the schedule for the day. My horse stands tied and stands in the trailer, so that's not usually a problem. But I am going to start going to shows earlier, riding him for a while and then...

    I'm in the "I give up" crowd. He's a godawful mess from day to day, especially now during mud season. When shows start up, I don't bother bathing him til the day of the show - no matter what sheet,...

    Me three. If those lovely gray ears of Mr Ay-rab are forward, it means his eyes are probably bugging out of his head and his brain is on overdrive. Great for the halter ring, bad news for the bottom...

    She's my rider girl crush. Also surrogate daughter - when we watched her at the WEG I almost passed out from tension just like you would if you were watching your own kid in the show ring. Love her...

    I didn't see Mr Ay-rab today but it was raining and they were out, so I'm sure he's even muddier than in the OP. I texted BO and told him I would be up first thing tomorrow am and please don't turn...

    That didn't happen to be in Illinois did it? Because there was a guy who showed costume out there in the late 1970s who did exactly the same thing. He always won and it always po'ed the Hollywood...

    When I took Mr Ay-rab to OSU in March 2014, it was 50-some degrees. Today? It was 5 when I left the barn. :confused: But a little bit of cold can't hide the good news today - shot #8 and an all-clear...

    Eh, you're a mere child. :D I rode from 11 to 35, then took 20+ years off to raise my twin sons. When they flew the coop, I bought myself a horse as an empty nest present at age 57. A 3 year old....
