It's nearly halfway through June and we're on day two of rain storms, something that is a big relief. As you can see from the photos below, things are still nice and green, and we haven't had more than a few days of completely oppressive heat (yet..). Since moving to the farm, I've been focusing on being patient and making progress in whatever area I can. We've done a lot of small jobs around the farm. I've been trying to appreciate the beauty of the place and take a few moments to slow down and actually enjoy it.
Last month I made the hard decision to sell Finn in order to pay off some debts from the construction of the farm. He has a new home with the Keen's in Maumelle, AR where I'm sure he will be incredibly happy and able to live up to his potential.
I can't believe it's June and I've only done one recognized event so far this year. I haven't been able to really "buckle-down" and push for any big goals with Stromboli, but he's the best he's ever been. Stromboli and I were supposed to make our unofficial prelim debut at the MACTA schooling 3-phase event at the end of May, but it was cancelled due to heavy rains. We are riding in the Lainey Ashker Clinic this Friday, then trying the MACTA again the following weekend.
