My new blog has been very neglected the past few weeks. I have tons to write about, but am just going to make this entry about some new happenings. We've had some CRAZY weather. Some rain, some sun, and a WHOLE LOTTA WIND!! They even closed I-90 because of all the blowing dust. I was stressing as we had a mare arriving from California, but she made it just fine.
Whizards Chexy Bar arrived last night from Clovis, CA. about 9 pm. Our thanks to Stacy Hamilton for giving us the opportunity to lease "Snickers" for the next two years. She is safe in foal to Chex Nu Jewel for 09, I am SO EXCITED!! She is a sweetie!
We want to congratulate a couple of Jumping Jack Whiz kids. Jeff Lankford and Slide Me A Whiz are the 2009 ABRA World Champions in Open Barrels and also ABRA Amateur Pole Bending. They also were Reserve World Champions in ABRA Amateur Barrels. CONGRATS! And yes everyone, I said BARRELS AND POLES!! A horse and rider after my own heart!!
