Ther is a show coming up

Ther is a show coming up.

At leest, I *think* there is.

Mom has been spending lots of time on jomping.  And she has been messing with her stirops and is all "thees is too short, thees is too long, thees is un even, now thees is too short agin." She is also jomping without hands on Roxie reins, or without stirops, or both of these.  Some times she even jomps me without a saddul.

(editor's note: Trying to solve an overly swing-y lower leg)

Meanwhile I just does what I is told.  I jomps fences, trots around feelds, canners on trails, does dressahzjs, and what ever else.

I halts square, an backs up, an does canners on correckt leeds.  These is all easy.  One thing that is not eesy: We will trot for a while, and then Mom is all "Roxie, trot bigger." and I is like "Trot faster!" and Mom is like "No, trot BIGGER" and I is like "Whut? You mean FASTER." and she is all "NO I MEAN BIGGER" but I donot understand.  Mom sez I will get it evenshually.  

We also does a stretchy trot sircles.  I is excellent at these an I gets ALL the "good girl"s.

Also.  Mom taekes me back to a Toolip Spring place.  I remember this from spring time.

I loves this place.  It has ALL sorts of nice tall green grasses an purple clovers.

I is all "MOM PLEASE ALLOW ME TO EAT OF THESE" and she is all "NO WAY YOU COW I BRUNG YOU HEER TO DO WORKS" which is relly not very nice to say to a Roxie.

I gets in a Humungus Horse Trailur with other horses.  Noah an som freckle face red horse.  I is the oldest horse heer, an the only girl. :)

Noah is the blond one.

We does jompings!

Picshured: Jompings 

Heer is video.

There is ANOTHER flying change that happens between the last 2 fenses of this one.  I has GOT to rememmer to stop indicayting that thees is possible. I has got to stick with "no I is too long-body an Roxie Hevvy to do this thing."

Oh my - Roxie rocks! And your Mom does too. The videos were fun to view, and I definately caught that flying change. It must be hard for you to look bad when you are just so darn good! I bet you win lots of ribbons at your next show. Keep up the good work and continue to train your human.

Oh Roxie, I can totally understand your moms stirrup problems. I have been having the exact same issue!

Great pics! Love the first one - can totally relate to taking these kind of photos!

Good luck in the show - sounds like Roxie is going well!
