Electric Green? Ride On!

Ready to Ride! On Sunday we were able to go to the annual "horse garage sale" and buy Shayla a new (to her) used outfit to compete in this summer. (We were down to the very last aisle and we had looked for 1 1/2 hours, without any luck. Then- this one, a favorite color, a great fit and within my budget - Praise God!) She's all set now.....well, she just needs to decide WHICH HORSE she wants to lease this year. Skeeter has been a great horse for her the past two summers; however, he's not a "fast" horse and she says she wants to try to go fast. Skeeter is solid at the fair: good in trail, predictable, doesn't spook, but you can't trust him around a grain bucket. He'll push you over and take off for the food. Hmmmmm. Big decision and we're letting her make it.

Thankfully, the hat Traci (aka Hariett from COSI) gave Shayla for her first year of competitions still fits and looks great! Also, all of her English clothing we bought for her last year still fits, as do the English boots a sweet Blogger mailed her three years ago. THANKS! Much to my surprise and delight, the black boots we bought her in Amish country two years ago also fit. God is good! Now - pick that horse, Shay. You've got nearly 20 to pick from. (Yes, I'm serious!) Who will it be?

Shayla, you look amazing and I love your new room!

Can't wait to hear more about your horse selection!
