When it rains it pours!

It's been busy 'round our place these past weeks! Horse clinics and horse shows and horse training!

I tried to load the video of Sera's test but Blogger wouldn't do it. Grrr... I left it on all night long and in the morning it was "still processing" so I gave up.

The baby goaties are getting BIG! They are down to two feedings a day vs. three and they are eating more alfalfa. I put an ad into United Caprine News to sell them. I hope I get calls! Any of you need a goat or two?

I rode with The Cowboy (Anthony) last night. I was on his bay horse and he rode Rosso. It was good for me to see Rosso go along out in the open. He was relaxed and moving forward. Anthony recommended some chiropractic work on Rosso last week and thinks that made a big difference in Rosso's reactions and attitude.

I know when my back goes out, I am an unhappy crank-ster vs. a happy Shanster. Rosso's overall attitude seems so much more relaxed after the chiropractic work. Even if it was that Rosso only needed a chiropractic adjustment, and not so much an attitude adjustment, taking him to "cowboy bootcamp" was definitely worthwhile.

Anthony will take Rosso up to the mountains this weekend and he'll watch me ride Rosso next week to offer me tips and then Rosso can come home. Two weeks of training vs. 30 days will be easier on our bank account too!

Bey Breeze Farm called me yesterday with a last minute opening in a clinic offered by Debbie Riehl-Rodriguez today. I shouldn't go because of work and money but I am. Like I said, when it rains, it pours and you only live once, right?

Have you tried uploading to youtube and then embedding the video into your blog post? I had the same problem until I started using Youtube.

Shanster said...

Heather - you are awesome - I'll give that a try - thanks!

DebH said...

You go girl!! That is exactly right..We only live Once and make it Count!!

DebH said...

You are so advanced in your blogging. I have never even tried to add video. I'm still having problems when I want to add more than one photo. urrrggg

And yes you only live once Shanster. Have a good time.

Cheryl said...

Wow, chiropractic work on a horse! That's quite an image. I can see a person readjusting another person's spine, but a big giant horse spine! Maybe a big giant vet?

Shanster said...

DebH - I would make you a HECK of a deal on a lamancha!

Foxxy - I am so NOT advanced. I am remedial. I always have trouble with photos and video and spacing and all that stuff! Sometimes Blogger is really uncooperative and I wish I were a techie!

Cheryl - yeah - you should have seen the guy, he was HUGE! heh. I went to watch, it was pretty interesting!

I was just going to ask the same question as Cheryl. Glad Rosso is a happier horse. Sorry we can't see the video. I've only attached one video from YouTube but never one of my own.
Have fun at the seminar! Tell us all about it when you get back.
