A Yay for yesterday. Went to the local annual Mother's day show, been supporting it for decades. Ran into an old show buddy who quit lessons and showing a few years ago after his wife died suddenly. He said he is ready to try again but his horses, who were on the hot side to begin with, haven't been ridden since he lost his wife. I offered to haul both my show horses to lessons and he can ride one of them, he said he just might take me up on the offer. My coach & I were in tears, we missed him terribly, he was a former bronc rider who met his wife and took up her passion, pleasure & equitation. He took lessons with his wife, showed the hot Appaloosas she so adored and even asked us gals how his butt looks in his new chaps, lol! A picture of him holding on to Otis for me. I think they look pretty good together, don't you think?
