Wellington, Here I Come

It is about time that I was allowed to go to a horse show.  Snickers, my love, has been to many shows and, although, she has told me that she doesn’t care much for all the dogs that are milling around, it sounds wonderful to me so… I am thrilled that I get to go to Wellington for the winter.  My first excursions have been totally awesome, even though Miss Paula has a tendency to drag me around and leave me in the golf cart quite a bit.  But it is an exciting change for me to actually see the horses showing and schooling and not just to hear about it later.  The youngsters did not disappoint as Colora won the 6 Year Old Jumper class and Gevalia BF (better known by her BrLovey WEFidlebourne kin as Lovey) was Champion Baby Green at her first show ever!

I hope all of you had a Happy Thanksgiving.  I am certainly thankful for my people, horsey, and doggy friends that make my life so amazing!

 

Sloppy kisses to all,

Your friend, Spot

Stormy Times Bring Changes

Well, friends, I have been delinquent in keeping you up to date on Bridlebourne’s happenings and in June we had quite a whirlwind, literally!  An EF 0 tornado blew through and did quite a bit of damage at the farm.  Trees were uprooted, our flag pole snapped like a twig and sheet metal roofing cut a swath of damage in the path of the storm.  The roof and shedrow on the south side of the arena was completely demolished.  Thanks to Alan’s diligence in watching the weather, all the horses were safely in the barns.  After many months of consulting with insurance adjusters, engineers and contractors, the reconstruction is almost complete and we will now have bleachers that will view the indoor arena.

I have really had my paws full with all the supervision that I have had to do.  Thank goodness I had the proper uniform.  Safety is important and, although I didn’t think that a hard hat was necessary, my vest alerted everyone to use caution!

Just wait until you see the final product.  I think that you will like it!

Your hard workin’ friend,

Spot
