I love the Barn!
Today made me really excited for this show season. I guess it has just been so long since I have had to get up at 4:00 in the morning, stand out in the rain for hours, spook in the flat class, go off course, or be the seventh out of seven, that I only remember the good things, like that feeling - the I'm-on-top-of-the-world feeling that you have when you win a class, or how happy you are when you just get in a great round, or even the excited rush you get when you are cleaning your tack down at the barn at 10:00 at night and you finally realize that tomorrow you will be at a show. I miss all of that stuff. And we were looking at the big eight horse trailer today, and I can just imagine all of the mornings this summer, yawning, and loading Breezy into the back, or even taking her out of the trailer and walking her around while she explores the "strange new place where we have landed". It just makes me want to yank out all of my show clothes and wear them around the house. : )
