A Few Words On Wednesday

Moon and I finally got the smoken' run we have worked so hard for. We ran a 17.23 at the Rimrock rodeo last night. We had the fast time in the slack, but got moved by the performance runs. Placed 4th overall. They only paid 3 monies. :(

**For comparison...the last time Moon ran in this arena, he ran an 18.78. And placed 3rd in the 3-D.

Megan and Spooks ran and the black horse is doing great. They ran a 19.74. Only time will tell if the black horse has more to give, but for now we're happy. I still think he's going to make a better rope horse than barrel horse, but I think this is good for him. He's learning how to stretch out and run a little.

Mikey said...

Awesome! That's a sweet time, both of you!

FV- (blushes) Thank you.

Wanna know something funny? Moon was running so fast, he ripped my hat off my head on the way home. SIX pins holding that hat on...Owwww! I guess I am going to have to go to one of those chin strap thingies. LOL

Well they can only keep you out of the money for so long if you keep improving like that. Won't be long before they are chasing you down and trying to knock you out of the #1 position... Looking forward to that? I bet you are!

I'm guessing a stampede string would be far less painful when the hat comes off. Ouch!

Awesome! Only 3 people snuck ahead of you (dang too bad they didn't pay to 4th!) But think, maybe if Moon was in the perf not slack he'd have run a wee bit harder... some horses like a crowd to perform for :)

Just a matter of time and you'll be getting a cheque!

Oh, and I have to use stampede strings (hate them) but no pins hold my hat on.

CONGRATS! That's a hell of an improvement - great work to you and Moon!

Meg looks great on the black horse. Can't wait to see what he ends up doing :)

Crystal said...

Laura said...

Woohoo! Way to go - all of your hard work is starting to show. I'm sure you guys will be in the money soon.

How cool! :-)

Paint Girl said...

Yeah! Congratulations!! So very exciting!!

Pony Girl said...

So cool~ you go girl!
Love that first picture!!!
I was reading your post about the sorrel horse pulling back...I still have issues with My Boy doing that. I never thought about a virus in his ears, wish I'd had the vet check them when he got his vaccinations. But like you I can handle his ears and he's fine. So I have no idea what his issue is. I can't wait to work on it this summer!
