And Winter has returned to the Wild O Ranch. Rogers County and NE OK is under a winter storm watch tonight after a high in the 70’s yesterday. My rose bushes, crocus, trees, and horses think its coming spring. Splash is busy loosing white hairs onto every clothing surface and he got an ear/bridle path trim too. Even so, he will be very hairy for the classic next week.
Expecting the other weather shoe to drop, we were lucky to get a Party Lesson in Saturday morning. After a freezing start, we were melting by ten and only Alaina was prepared for the balmy temperatures with her summer time tank top. We had a little Disciple Rail to finish the lesson which was fun. Ivy practiced showmanship with Splash and Alaina worked on Ranch Trail with Sunny. Ranch Trail and Ranch Pleasure will be new at the District Horse Show and at State. Splash and I will try RT at the WRC next weekend.
Before that happens, we have to get ride of any icy mix on the roads so that I can make a quick trip to Kansas and then, hopefully, warm up a bit for the show. We can use some help with announcing and ring stewarding at the show on both days, so give me a call if you can help us out. And, don’t forget that spring really is right around the corner. Thank goodness.
