    I had a dog bitten by a copperhead once. Very scary, but she lived. I had a patient bitten by a copperhead once too and it really did some damage to her liver.
  2. Found scary thing in bananas! No pictures.

    Im kinda jealous that Ive never encountered a scorpion, lol
  3. Look what I did today.

    Guys I totally forgot to mention that the turn out at this show was huge. This was a qualifying show for 4hers to qualify for the state 4h show. So there were lots of youth competitors. Probably not the best first show for them to go to, but it makes me even more happier that they came away with the ribbons they did! I also forgot to mention that Zoey (in western attire) came in 4th out of 6 in her Western Model class...and she was the only mini in the class. I nearly had a heart attack. She of course had no idea that she had just "beat" 2 full sized horses with her green yearling mini LOL! I think now some professional halter lessons are in order for both minis and girls. I know someone that trains for halter and I think I may look into some real lessons for them. I think we've done really well with the minis but there are a few things that need fine tuning by a pro. As far as continuing to show these particular minis, thats a conversation Im going to have to have with Zarinna. Her idea was to show them a couple times which would increase their value, and then sell them. (The issue I have with that is that the money goes to their grandaddy, and he doesnt give them a penny of it. I think for all the time and training Zarinna has put into the minis she should get half of the selling price.) We have another mini mare due to foal any day now and Zarinna cant wait to start from scratch with that baby. I'll keep you all posted. I printed off some pics from yesterday and tossed them into a multiframe. I'll be taking one to Pappy (who hauled us yesterday) and one to Grandaddy (my landlord). Grandaddy did call me yesterday to ask if he should start building a trophy room....of course I said yes lol.

    Final ribbon count yesterday! Im still exhausted lol, but it was worth every hot sweaty minute.

    Yes, they are both just yearlings. People were shocked, amazed, and in love with the minis when we told them they're just yearlings lol.

    But wait guys, we were just getting started!!! We went on to do Model and Showmanship classes! Im so proud of these two and their ponies, even if Margarita did lay down in the line up in their last class LOL. These were some tired ponies and kids at the end. But, we did it!! Ill post pics of the final ribbon count tomorrow. We're going back in October.

    Guys! We made it to the show, and the girls are having a great time. They're done with their in hand trail classes and did really well. The classes were huge and we have no results yet, but we're all really happy with our go's regardless. We have an hour to wait til our Model and Showmanship classes this afternoon. Its hot, we're sweaty, but all is good.

    I was so upset most of the day. Just cant fathom people who arent interested/supportive of their kids/grandkids. I couldnt even begin to imagine how I was going to break the news to my cowgirl. As it turns out, everything may be ok. Their pappy has to work that day but he says I am welcome to the truck and trailer. Thank goodness! I took the girls to the big nice tack shop today and we got our last minute supplies. I just have to do a grocery store run after work tomorrow for sandwich stuff. Oh, and my cowgirl says her mom IS coming to watch :-)

    Aaaand just like that, grandaddy has backed out on hauling us too. Awesome. Guess its a no go for the show.
  12. The Front Porch

    Yep, that's what Ill do too. At least Im only 15 minutes away from the show in case I forget something.

    Welp, here we are..the Monday before the show. Minis have been clipped and look nice. Im leaving the mane, not braiding. I bought a pair of cowgirl boots for one of my Cowgirls and they both now have everything they need. Bringing helmets just in case. Im making my list of stuff to bring..bucket for water, chairs, canopy, cowboy magic, cooler of sandwich makings and drinks, brushes, clean cloths to wipe muzzles etc. Im not off work again til Wednesday, so we'll practice that day. Oh, and thank goodness their granddaddy (my landlord) is hauling us...pappy flaked out like I figured he would. Im hoping these kids' parents etc come watch them, but Im not holding my breath.
  14. The Front Porch

    Awww that would be awesome! Thank you!
  15. The Front Porch

    I think thats what Im going to do about the helmet. Honestly, I dont think Im going to braid at all. I want to...but I just dont have the time, and its a very local show.
