Red Bluff

It's that time of the year, The Red Bluff Bull and Gelding Sale.
No, we did not buy a horse or a bull for that matter.  We went to visit
with friends, eat and shop.

If you have never been, it's fun to watch.  There are 3 sections in the arena, one for dry work,
one with trail obstacles and the last one to work a cow.  All of the sale horses preview starting in
one pen and then after 90 seconds they move to the next, and then the next.

The next day some will go on to preview in roping and cutting.  If you were wanting to buy a horse
from a sale, at least you can see them in action.
After all the horse fun, there is the bull sale.  We didn't need one of those either.

I thought this guy was looking pretty happy.

Then, there is shopping!

And eating!

Yum!  Curley Fries!

And, what's cuter than a Boston Bull in sunglasses and chaps!

That Bill!  I told him that purse didn't go with those boots!
The sweetie bought the purse for his wife.

Was another fun day!

It's The New Year, Let's Get Going!

Well, here it is, 2011!  Horseshow dates are all ready stacking up on the calender.
Horses are starting to shed out and get fit.  We went to see William the other day, and
he is starting to come along nicely.  He is currently with David and Becky Hanson.  They have
an awesome slide show on their website.
How much fun does this look like?

Anyway here is William, he has the best lope!
Sorry David, I whacked your head off.

Meanwhile, just next door is the GJA.  How convenient is that!
I go and ride the GJA once a week and stop by to kiss the
spotted pony on the nose.  I won't be riding William for a few months yet.

The GJA's trot is getting much bigger!  Some days he is pretty good, but
we don't call him the Giant JackAss for nuthin,

But, ready or not, here we come.  Show season is about to start!
