I’m in love with Beyonce’s new song, “If I were a boy” I’m not seeing anyone… haven’t in a long time… but right now I can think of 2 men that this song perfectly describes. But you’re just a boy You don’t understand (Yeah, you don’t understand) How it feels to love a girl Someday you’ll wish you were a better man You don’t listen to her You don’t care how it hurts Until you lose the one you wanted Cause you’ve taken her for granted And

80 - monday - ami pictures

I am so over the moon happy. Today we jumped for the first real time. (trotted some crossrails twice before). Special thanks to Lindsey, who is the best barn friend in the world, and who always encourages me to go for it…  to Rachel, who is always my sidekick who takes the pictures…  and Heather, who for 6 months, listen to me cry about my horse. It isn’t over but this is a milestone.  We are getting around! I’m in love. At last, my love has come along.

way hungover and spent the morning trying not to puke. Recovered by lunch and went about my day. ______________________________________________________ Ami was a superstar today. I rode him first and we jumped a mini course of baby cross rails.   I don’t want to stress him physically yet with real jumps but I want us to start the process of getting back into that mindset.  Plus he loves it.  That horse locks and loads … I love it.  Jim got on him and tried a few changes with him.

Interesting thread on the supplements.  The thing that made me most happy was the conversation back and forth. _________________________________________________________ Ami was super today.  I didn’t lunge him.  Got on him, took him for a trail ride and then took him straight to the arena.  Trotted and cantered perfectly quiet.  no fuss.  I put him on ulcer meds per Heather’s suggestion and he has been so much more accepting of the leg. ________________________________________________________ Ok,

it rained so hard it flooded the streets.  we had a hard time getting the trailer pulled up and there was even talk about us having to stay another night.  I was so ready to go that I was ready to throw all the stuff on myself…  Finally it let up enough, we loaded up and we were off. J drove all the way home.  I was tired, but offered several times to take over.  We got home around 2am. I’m glad to be home for a while. _________________________________________________ Ami was happy
