I am just plum tired. I have been line driving Ozzie and my legs feel like they are going to fall off. Today, I was about to finish when he darted out of the arena gate and flipped around and got the lunge lines all tangled. I let one go and tried to stop him with just one line, but he was just turning into the barb wire. So, I let him go before something bad happened. He then ran off into the pasture. I was mad by the time I got him back. Since he wanted to run, I lunged him a bit more and then we line drove for an additional 20 minutes. That was after an already long and hot 45 minutes of line driving. I couldn't let him think he could get away with running away. Also, Mr. Cowboy has been working extra late. He has been getting home around 11:30 pm. If he gets home at 7 pm we are lucky. So, between Ozzie and the three kids, and no husband I am pooped. So, I am going to go to bed and I will have to check up on everyone tomorrow.

Oh, I am English Bridle shopping. If anyone has any brands or off brands that they like the best let me know. I want something for Hunter classes. Until tomorrow, y'all come back now ya hear!

hehe! I like that photo. Get some rest girl. You deserve it putting up with those Ozzie antics.

Happy bridle shopping!

Their store band is not bad at all - I got a squared raised fancy stitched bridle for under $100.00 - you can't tell it's not a fancy brand.

Note - you will have to purchase a longer set of reins, but you can do that for under $60.00 too.

Still cheaper than one "name brand"

hehehe... I had to expand the picture to see what it was - how cute! Maybe I need to start line driving if it's that good of exercise! :-)

I hear ya sista! I'm pooped too, majorly. It's been quite the week! I am SOOOOO ready for the 3 day weekend. I want to sleep in tomorrow so bad, but I'm dog sitting and I bet the dog will want out at 7 a.m., the little stinker!

I'd be pooped too! Good thing you are young and still have some get up and go, mine got up and went! I worked Kip in the ring and then Miss T rode him. I was so tired from walking around that ring so many times! Hope I walk off some of this excess fat that I am lugging around! ha!
