Dancer is such a wonderful horse! I've been trying to get out to the barn at least twice a week, but during the heat, it's best to ride in the early morning and I am NOT a morning person! Once I get there, though, I always have such a good time. Everyone's friendly and there's not a lot of Drama Queens the way there was at the Other Barn (not the barn Tiki lived at, the other barn I took lessons at). And Dancer...
Such a wonderful boy! I never thought about having a grey horse; I always liked bays. So what did I end up with??? LOL! It's a pain because he loves to sleep with his head in his pee, but then as Anne (trainer) says, "All horses are dirty". It forces me to experiment with various spot-cleaners, though.
In other news, my sister's been driving me crazy with a family matter involving our brother. It's been incredibly stressful and I finally pointed out to her she's been obsessed with it and she needed to do what was possible and then DROP it. I mean, she was calling me six or seven--or even more--times a day.
I did go to the State Fair with her, though, and that was fun. Over 60 foods on a stick, plus the famous (infamous?) Krispy Kreme cheeseburger, which I did NOT try. :D I never knew how susceptible my sister was to the sales pitches of the various vendors... she would be as if hypnotized by the shpiel. Honestly. She watched the one for the hand-powered food processor/grinder/grater twice in a row, which amazed me. Even more amazing, she almost bought one!
Finally got some cool weather again tonight. The cats and I are enjoying it very much.
