Today I found out that Goose and Lynx’s mama is not bred. She should be bred. She is not. I could throw my sucker in the dirt and be mad. But I’m not. Actually, I ok with it. It’s weird. I realize that God had other plans!
God put Splash in my life. He has been trying to put said horse in my life for 4-5 years now. Finally, he closed the door on Roxy so now I can have Splash! Five horses is a lot. Roxy is going home to the ranch. Back down to four horses! But again, I’m not sad! This mare put two on the ground that are awesome horses. Time to keep going with them. ONE DAY I will come across a colt that will have the pedigree of Lynx. ONE DAY. But not today.
My plan is to keep going with my three sound, broke, barrel horses and let Gabe continue to be a pasture buddy. I’m sad he doesn’t have Jennayyy anymore but he will be fine. I have another Bay to tune on and run. Splash is so much fun!!
So I will listen and do my best with what I have. No reason to stress about not having another baby out of the dam of Lynx and Goose. Heck, I have my hands full! So listen up guys. If got closes a door, look for the open window! It’s there!!! Mine is… less horses, less hay and feed. One less to deworm, one less trim, one less to vaccinate…. one less. Granted I did just add Splash to my herd and that was totally unexpected. But God has a plan!
For some, this seems like the wrong time to set goals. Well, I like to set goals once I finish my last big goal! And I did it! Zbar Lynx To Cash and A Splash of Jet set me up for Open Champion and Adult Champion for the year with BRAT Barrel Racing! Whoop!
So now it’s time to set more goals. First goal is to get Splash to be more supple and to get him to be more….well….easy for kids! He is 18 but he is all work! So we will teach him to play! Lots of riding, round pen work and pasture riding is in his future!
Lynx is still healing so my goal is to get him back to 110%. It might take a while!
Goose will stay in his light training to keep him in shape but only hard rides when it’s cool outside. Planning on picking up some jackpots in the fall for him!
For my business….. I would love to be able to sell a case of Steprite Plus a week. So that’s my goal! I love how it works for my horses and dogs! Its on my website! Go to shop!
I would also love to sell at minimum of one bucket of Core Balance a week! It’s amazing stuff! Core Balance use my code RM2020CB for 25% off!
And now down to Summit. I’m one shot into loading dose on 3 horses! I would love to get at least one loading dose sold a week! Summit
So I do have Goals! Big ones! Feel free to click the links and check out my products! I’m hear to answer questions too!
In the Spring of 2019, I decided that I wanted to make the races at BRAT for the entire season. I ended up missing one in June but that was it. There are 12 races in a season. I wanted to win the year or at least be in the top 10 on Zbar Lynx To Cash.
Lynx was able to get us to the top. Then to first. Then… Covid 19 hit. Lynx cut his leg about a week after. Races were canceled… we were sitting first for open and adult!!! Two races left. Y’all, I tried to heal him up for Mother’s Day weekend also known as the last two races of the season…. but it wasn’t meant to be.
So my sweet friend Debra suggested I ride Splash. He is an 18 year old gelding that has been there done that. However he hasn’t really been run since 2016. So I did it!!!! Low and behold, Splash man ended up winning 1st in the 5D open and 4th in the adult on Saturday. I had given him his Summit on Friday! His first round! Had him Chiro’ed on Saturday night. Then we made another run on Sunday landing 3rd in the 4D, knocking a half of a second off our time, and 1st in the 4D Adult!!!!!! Holy Cow!!!! We did it! Splash clinched the year keeping us At the top of the open and the adult!!!!!!
My last post was about making changes. About God putting logs in our path to help us grow. I always felt like I was a decent rider. But I have my favorites. Lynx is one of them! The fact that I was able to jump ride a different style horse this weekend and bring home the loot just reminds me that I am BLESSED. So when God puts that log in the road, look around…. something different but better might be right there!!!!!
