Good Cat – Bad Cat

ImageLast Saturday morning the girls were planning to join in the Tulsa Colorrun.  They decided they NEEDED white tights on Friday night.  We have two pairs in the Rocking C Drill Team box.  Alaina and I went out to the shed under cover of darkness to retrieve white tights.   Success.  Ivy and Alaina, along with their track-mates Sara and Kassidy, loved the color run even though we missed the party lesson.  The white tights and white shirts did acquire some color but mostly look grungy since the color seems to vanish with a little shake.  We found a YaYa in the crowd too.

ImageLater that day, Steve mentioned that our cats, Velcro and Zebra, were missing.  We went searching.  No Cats.  They didn’t come to the barn for supper either.  We worried about coyotes.

Sunday morning – still no cats.  Steve checked the hay barn and other favorite haunts.  Then thought:  I wonder if those bad cats helped look for tights in the shed?  After unlocking the shed, Velcro came blasting out.  Zebra was perched on the highest shelf and howled for help to get down.  Velcro is still mad at the world (Bad Cat); Zebra is following Steve around like he is a cat’s best friend (Good Cat).  Velcro very likely treed Zebra on the top shelf for a day and a half.  Poor Kitty.

IMG_1166The girls got lucky and had a rare Sunday lesson since District and State are on the horizon.  Ivy practiced some flying lead change exercises while Alaina worked on Western topline and trail obstacles.  Then, Ivy worked Blue in English and jumping while Alaina tried Sister over jumps.  I IMG_1160managed to squeeze a little Western in using my new loaner saddle from Roxy.  It has a secure seat but may be a tiny bit small on me.  Margaret and Nancy joined in on the horsey fun too.

Monday afternoon was lovely and the girls were already riding when I got home.  Ivy was practicing flying changes down the long sides and Alaina manage to get some flying lead changes out of Sunny too.  Ahhh, I feel Western Riding in their futures.

Meanwhile, I am searching for a location to do a St. Jude benefit ride – any suggestions?  Perhaps a Sunday in early June.  YaYa.
