Well, as I pulled up to the stable today, I could hear my boy Pan Pan in the background. ( For those of you who don't know.....he is quite the "chatty" fellow!) but this was an unusal about of verbalizations. He had been turned out and was having a grand time socializing with all the geldings. They all took turns grooming him..... rock star comes to town... It was fun to see. I don't think Pan Pan has been allowed herd interaction in years! While he was socializing, I had my formal lesson on a new horse, Bueller, a Belgium warm blood 16 2 hands. Bueller is a newcomer to the barn. He has a very smooth gate, and although he was a sluggish to start...we made great progress by lessons' end. There is lots of potential to grow and compete with this horse. How exciting!

This is the weekend Reins celebrates a wonderful year of riding with a horse show, games and some good hot dogs! I have the opportunity to set up a booth to display my paintings. This is an opportunity to earn some money for the trip Sarah and I will be taking in November to Kansas City for the UPHA Horse Show.
