SMDA Recognized Show - July 14, 2019

Ellie and I tried her first recognized show in July.  It was quite an interesting experience; I don't know why this has been such a weird year, but sadly it has!

MY NEW TRUCK!

So after many, many years of waiting, I finally got my OWN NEW TRUCK this summer! Now I can finally truck my horse myself, get hay myself, get shavings and grain myself, etc. etc. My beautiful truck has made my life so much easier and less stressful! Now my darling husband has no reason to complain about my use of his work truck. Much less hassle and arguments.

She is a 2009 GMC Sierra 3/4 ton heavy duty. It has automatic transmission, A/C, an extended cab and an eight foot bed. I am so in love with this truck it is probably unhealthy. LOL!


Here is my rig!
