Schools out for Summer!

Down by the pond early this spring. (S)

It has been out just over a week here and we are SO glad to be done.

S had basketball camp last week up at UW-Eau Claire. She came back a changed woman, or so she said. She improved her basketball skills and became very motivated.

N is off to Badger Girl State this week. It is a program in which she is selected by the women of the VFW and spend all week creating a government. She is running for the state attorney general of her fictional government.

The steers are being washed daily and lead around getting ready for the fair. They are big this year. VERY big. I will try and get some photos if possible. Usually I am helping wash, and don't want to get the camera wet.

Our horses had their hooves trimmed this last week and Dixie got a nice set of pads and shoes. We are hoping this alleviates some of the ring sour issues S was experiencing last year.

I hope this finds all of you doing well. I apologize for not updating more often. I am on face book more often than not these days.

Izzy is into the government thing, too, but over here is it Model United Nations. They are going to Athens, Greece in October. She has been chosen to lead the delegation as Ambassador. I wish I could say I knew what that was so exciting it makes her keep smiling and saying "I am AMBASSADOR!" said...

Happy new year for horse lovers!
