Hey all, well let's see it is now November 2011, let's just say that this last year and a half has kept me... distracted... yea that's the word will use. But things are getting back to normal. I moved my horses and my main center of operations to my friends facility.. BP Performance Horses, here in beautiful Antioch, Illinois and things are going great. Many new things in the works... stay tuned for updates... I promise I'll start writing more often. Also check us out on facebook, twitter and linkedin... See ya !

Wow, this is going to be a busy weekend, but fun nonetheless!! Tonight after I pick up the truck from my mom's house, I am going to visit my friends barn in Woodstock. I haven't been to this facility in years nor have I seen my friend in about a year. So this should be a lot of fun. Tomorrow morning I am going to go get shavings and then I'm meeting my mom at the barn around 8 to do stalls and feed. Then at noon my friend Brian Pogue is bringing his 4-H group up to the barn for some live juding practice that will help them get ready for their competition next year in Springfield. Then I'll have time to ride a few horses and then feed and go home and defrost. Then Sunday I'll have some time to play with some horses and then I have "The Healthy Horse" clinic for Mary Teeter's 4-H group. Like I said.. busy busy weekend.

I actually started another blog that is to be focused on issues facing our horse industry. Let's work together to come up with some solutions and ideas for making this industry something we can all be proud of.
Well, what can I say, things have been going great at the barn. We are close to capacity and I have a wonderful show team started. We are in the middle of our winter training program and are working super hard for the 2010 show season. Cash our great grandson of Zips Chocolate Chip was accepted to Midwest Horse Fairs Stallion Avenue, so we are really excited about that as well. Stay tuned for more updates. I won't get so far behind from now on.

Things are really starting to come together. So far my 31st year has been pretty darn good. I feel like I finally hit my stride(no pun intended) at school and don't feel like the lame teacher I was last quarter. I will say this school year is going by super fast. Not that I'm complaining. I'm starting to reconnect to friends which feels good. And the barn is going well, gaining customers a and positive exposure. Things just seem to be clicking, now normally I would sit back wait for the other shoe to drop but I refuse to let myself think like that this time around. My goal for this week is to do some major spring cleaning and get my house in order so it doesn't look like I just visit there. I'm getting really excited for spring can you tell?
