Quick Week Re-Cap

I don't have a lot of time since I came back from vacation to literally a mountain of work. I had a great time at the fair with Possum. I'm still looking to track down some pictures so I can post them on here, I'll let ya know if I get my hands on any.

Possum was a star as usual. He never blinked at the carts, the horses, water trucks, harrows or anything else. He went about his job like he was born to do it. We wore different colors every day and we got a lot of compliments from trainers, owners and even drivers on what a good job we did. I even had to help a couple of horses to the gate and turn some of then around that wouldn't turn on their own.

I averaged it out that Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday all combined I rode a total of 24 hours. Possum and I were both tired at the end of Saturday and are taking a few days to relax and recover from that amount of riding.

Possum did great living at the fair for the week. He settled right in and had hay in front of him at all times. We made friends with some of the puller guys and talked about different horse sports. He was the only saddle horse in a barn full of belgians and percherons. Having an appy really makes him stand out. I was also a little suprised about how little the general public knows about horses. It's really quite alarming especially when I hear kids whining for a horse and they don't even know if their a boy or a girl and when you say the word gelding it's like your talking in a different language. Many people just don't have a clue. But lot of my friends and family stopped by to see us and went to the races. The weather was great for the most part and it only really showered for a few hrs one day. I'll update more later this week, as I said earlier I have a ton to do.

Oh, I almost forgot about the "men" part of this blog. "G" is kinda on my shit list right now. He has decided to be an ass and treat me like crap for most of the week. I don't know how much more I can take of his bi polar issues. It really hurt me that he couldn't have even been bothered to see me at the fair even once. Plus the fact that many nice young men were hitting on me hard and being all nice and polite to me, it really made me miss being treated right by my partner. I don't know, we kinda had a talk last night but I was in a bad space and nothing realy got accomplished. I just want to put it on the back burner for now. I have the Maine Medal Finals coming up soon in 2 weeks that I need to prepare for. That's all for today, I promise to write more later and catth up on everyone's blogs

So glad that you're back and that, other than G's behaviour, you had an excellent week... sure hope you can round up some photos!

BTW, although I'm all caught up now reading your blog(yay!) I didn't read all the comments. So I'm wondering, does G know about the blog? If so, does he read it?

Welcome back!

The week is more exciting with you online!

Glad you had a fun time and that you're outfits looked good & and of course sorry G is being an ass.

You haven't explained yet what is going on but I am sure you don't deserve it. You just don't seem like the kind of person that provokes such behavior at all - so I can only assume it's his issues again...

Glad you're back.

There are really NICE men out there who will treat you the way you deserve to be treated. You didn't ask, but I like you, so I'll tell you: don't try to get what you want and need from someone who is not equipped to give it to you.

Been there, done that, and yes, I know it's hard. They're so blasted charming. Unrealized potential.

Glad to hear that you are back and had a mostly good week. Sorry to hear that G is still being an ass. I wish he knew that you could have your pick from all the other guys and act accordingly so he doesn't lose you... men...

Possum is the best horse ever! lol - What a trooper! Hope you can scrounge up some pictures for us!

"G" does know about the blog because I have told him, but he does not read it and rarely navigates the internet. I could care less even if he did. This is my therapy and talking to friends!

Thanks everyone, I did miss my blogging community and if I had a lap top or something I would have been typing away in his stall at the fair. I'm still gewtting caught up on everyone else's and work is busy so I'll try to put in a few good posts this week.

All right, Possum! Isnt it fun to be around a horse that takes things in stride and can relax in such an atmosphere? Lucky cowgirl.
