ME Morgan Benefit Show - August 10, 2019

I had not been planning to bring Ellie to this show, but an email had gone out to members a few days prior that entries were a bit low.  So in order to support the club, we headed out to Pineland Farm the morning of August 10, for what promised to be a gorgeous summer day!  All photos that I am in were purchased from the show photographer!
I always think these types of shows are going to be fine, but at the end of every single one of them, I always remember why I should stick with dressage and eventing haha.  That is not to say there is anything wrong with open shows or the club that runs them; this is just not the type of showing we do well at because she's not a "show horse".
The show was held at a gorgeous facility that boasts both large indoor and outdoor arenas.  They chose to have the show indoors with warm-up outside, which is fine, but Ellie was not a fan of the indoor.  One corner was open to the large and echo-y storage area where they had set up the secretary…

A Day in the Life.....

"Uggggggggg" I say as I roll out of bed. I am NOT a morning person, especially on a Monday morning.

Frosty whiskers and throaty nickers greet me as I began morning chores. It is not that cold at 17 degrees at 6:20 AM! :D

Love. My son is the best kid on the planet. :)

Seriously? Did I really read that correctly? Sometimes I am still amazed at how ridiculously idiotic people can be. Good gravy. Talk about crazy. It is quite funny to watch people destroy "friendships" only to find they have no friends! And then try to grasp for the ones they previously treated badly! The more I get to know horse people, the more I like my HORSE(S)! ROFL! Thankfully the drama has not reached me. PHEW!

YAY! Only four more days to teach until vacation! Life is good.

Oh, my aching back. Hauling water from the house to the barn is no fun.

More love. Slobbery kisses, horse cookies, neck scratches. Saying goodnight to the ponies is one of my favorite times of the day!

Resist! You. Can. Do. It! Why, oh why, does SLT and Dover have to send me sale catalogs!? LOL! I do NOT need another saddle pad, I do NOT need another saddle pad........LOL!

You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. My long suffering husband is out in the dark cold night fixing the barn's outside spigot as I type. There is a small metal thingy inside the handle that likes to break in the winter. And of course you cannot get that specific piece in the "spigot repair kit" at the hardware. Using his truck's headlights, he is fixing the spigot. :) If that's not love, I don't know what is. <3
