This picture below is Julie and her husband Richard and two others actors at a function.
Well Richard is a very nice man and loves his horse and other horses in general. Julie feels the same way, although she is currently starring in a play in New York on broadway so is not at the barn as much as Richard. I tagged along on the trail ride the other day and he got to talking about how he wants to have the barn owner set up a non profit for helping take in rescued and unwanted horses and then training them and making them functional members of the equine community where their chance of ending up back in the situation would be greatly reduced with all of the training and riding and possibly some showing. The barn owner does all of this out her own pocketnow and turns green and problem horses into real gems. He wants his donation to be setting her up with the legal stuff and then having a function at his summer home to raise donations and start the program up. We both were really excited at the prospect and Richard looked very serious about this. He is a very wealthy man but does a lot of good with his money and may want to help the barn rehab and re-train horses which would be excellent! he also knows many other celebrities and people with money to help donate to so I think this may be the start of a great thing at the barn. Keep your fingers crossed.
So yea, it was an OK weekend, but very tiring. I couldn't really get mad at Possum because he was just having fun and I'm not going to punish him for liking jumping too much. So probably gonna take it easy tonight and watch a movie and maybe hang at the barn.
