11/14/13: The kittys are cold this
November day. It was 23 degrees this morning and the cats
are next to the woodstove keeping warm! It's rare moment
where they are THIS close together!
3/20/14: Dixie gets 2nd at the Dixie Reining horse Assoc
show last week, but paid a big price with a major stifle
injury that has taken her out of the show pen for at least the
rest of this year. She may never run a reining pattern ever
again. She needed arthroscopic surgery and is on the mend. If
all else fails, she will join the ranks of broodmare.
3/28/15: After 6 months of stall rest and
pasture turn out, along with 6 months of rehab and
conditioning, Dixie has returned to the show pen sound
and able to win 10.5 points in open and amateur ranch riding
and open and amateur halter. I am delighted that she has
bounced back and is not in any pain. I will continue to show
her but will be very careful to not over do any reining.
