The way I looked at it, if he acted up, what more could they have done than me… besides maybe hang on longer. So I grabbed Lindsey (who has been a little Godsend) and told her I needed help.

Getting ready for horse show.  Pulled manes, clipped, bathed.  Loaded up and went to Lexington, VA.  I wanted to drive my own jeep so I wouldn’t be stuck with no vehicle but I had to pull a mini trailer behind a truck. Uneventful here.  When we got here, we unload and I tacked up all our horses for J to school.
