LOL, it was just a couple weeks ago I was braggin 'bout my daughter, who just graduated from high school. And today? she took first place in her very first Dressage test at a horse show in Washington. I had to stay here and feed and water the rest of the barn and pasture horses (about 25 horses). *Sigh* she called while I was out at the barn and left this message:
"Mom, I need to talk to you, tonight"
and when we connected tonight, I had a hard time holding back tears of joy when she told me her score put her in first place. LOL, but on the second event, she couldn't get her horse to halt and he just trotted right out of the arena, which of course, disqualified her. She said, "So we won't talk about that one."
I'm too tired to write a decent poem for her, but rest assured, a word or two will arrive (via muse) before the next full moon.
