CDI in raleigh going well.  Scores were decent, can’t complain.  I braided a ton today… horses were cooperate.  I really love braiding.  I love making the braids small and neat and perfect.  Appeals to some OCD part of my nature. __________________________________________________ I get to take a privately owned horse to my first dressage show in a couple of weeks.  SOOOOO excited.  He is one of my favorites at the barn.  The owner is completely awesome, and is so excited for

3 days back from kentucky and we are at another CDI.  Luckily it is local here in Raleigh but still.  A show is a show.  The clients for this show are awesome and independent so we have lots of help and little complaining. Always a bonus. Gonna make this short so I can clean up a little and get some stuff done around the house.

This was snapped by an awesome owner, Shirley, after Rhett and J scored a 71 in Rhett’s 1st PSG test ever. I like it ’cause we were both grinning like idiots when he came out.

I’m exhausted and I have nothing packed.  I feel a little under the weather.  I wish I had a personal assistant that could pack for me and pat me on the back until I went to sleep. Also… do my laundry.  Wash the dishes.  Bring me margaritas. Le sigh.
