IMG_7635Sister had her baby this week – Monday morning at 3:30am to be exact.  But first, she acted like she was in labor Friday night (no go), Saturday night (not yet), and Sunday night.  The girls and I held vigil with Angie until midnight when we gave up the watch and went home – school/work in the morning and Sister might have waited another day or 3.  Sister is turning out to be a good momma – pretty tolerant of people in the stall and messing with her baby.

20150404_102208We have been having other horsey fun before the blessed event including a party lesson last weekend that was all about the trail obstacles.  The weekend prior, we had the St. Jude Trail ride and the weekend 20150404_115310before that, the 2nd 4-H Point show of the year.  But I was down for the count with 2-weeks of antibiotics needed to beat a tick induced bacterial infection.  Add a couple of work trips to Kansas and you can tell I was distracted from my normal blogging activities.

20150329_112232We had a beautiful day for the St. Jude trail ride at the Flying M and raised over 600 dollars for the cause.  11081087_856052751099794_2643099172222763808_nWe tried out a new route since it was a bit soggy in the low lying areas.  The Flying M is a lovely place to ride with all my horsey friends.

The point show was a small, relaxed affair compared with the Will Rogers Classic.  We had a trail ride at Tom and Kerry’s the day 20150328_142910after that and the girls went to an NEO horsemanship clinic the day before the St. Jude ride and to the 4-H county banquet after the ride.

So, we have been horsing around.  Just a little.
