So Long, Friend

RHAA Finals in Abilene, TX was the last ride for Riley and Gunner. 1st Place Ranch Hand Class, new Tad Sanders saddle, pretty buckle, and a big sigh of relief. I think that it was a cool way for Riley and Gunner to quit on. Gunner now lives with Harold and Linda Green in Lipan, TX where he will possibly be the most spoiled horse on the face of the Earth. Look closely at the first picture and you can see them talking to Riley.

The Finals line-up of the 5 horses from each class.

Riley had two horses make it back to the Finals. As did Tripp, as did Tripp won both the Jr. and Sr. on Hoorey. Would you say they cleaned house? is Riley receiving his fourth place awards. FYI, Wrinkle is also his calf-horse.

Prissy had to sit (or sort of run wild) in the colesium for three days in a row while the guys showed. She behaved fairly well and didn't even crash down the stairs, which she loves to play on. Thank goodness for Hope, Trail, girls, grandmas, and a few strangers that she didn't mind going with.

Summer is into the photography thing.....I think she got quite a bit of practice. Scout loves playing in the dirt. Imagine that!!

Scout does love Autumn and I feel bad that she, Hope, and Summer have to carry her everywhere because she cries for them. They should have big muscles after carrying her all over that place. Gigi always has mints and Scout never forgets.

Kenneth & LaRue and Don & Judy (ladies are mom's cousins) always come to watch the guys. They are always so fun to be with.
Sure am glad to be home!!
