We have been barrel racing a lot , and have been having fun and loving working with the colts . Harley is doing so well and enjoys running out doors!~ JULY IS BUSY !~! If we go to everywhere we plan we will be busy til the second weekend in AUGUST !~We have been lucky and was able to go see are fathers for fathers day !~ Both are dads do so much for us and support both of us in are hobbies , we are so fortunate to have Butch and Big Jim as are dads ! Other wise we would be lost!~ On Tuesday I got a call from my sister stating Gorsuch had hurt himself , My SISTER thinks I overreact about my horses and baby's them so when she said he need help I knew it must be bad ...Jimmy and I made a mad dash to Coalville and picked him up , she was right , it was BAD.. This will be MONTHS and MONTHS of healing !~ He cut his neck and good chunk out of it and put the fence into the back of his foot !~ I just hope he heals okay and will be fine . I don't have any photos of Jimmy and I (SORRY DANICA), However Motorboat has a new Friend at the Weldon Stables and his name is LUKE , Luke is 27 years of age and has his own turn out , well Motor boat gets turned out with him now daily and they share hay and rub on each other !~ Its pretty cute how patient Luke is with him , and how happy Luke is to have a pal !~Tommrow I get to go to Coalville for CARLY DAWNS WEDDING Im so excited for her and Ill post pictures next week sometime !~

Well all I can say is SOME THINGS CHANGE , Jimmy and I moved to Texas 7 mths ago hoping things would work out for the two of us. However we have recently decided to take a job offer in Vernal Utah and move back !~ This place is wonderful and we will miss the wonderful people we have meet , worked with and become great friends with . We will miss the early morning baby's, the wonderful country and the great weather , we have GROWN a lot from this and LEARNED so much from the experience . SO here I go PACKING again , my parents had tickets already to fly in this last weekend , GRANTED three weeks ago they had NO IDEA it was to help PACK ... LOL . SO Sunday we packed me up !~! Granted I have a lot still but THANK GOODNESS they were here to help !~ Thanks MOM and DAD !~!Big Jim also got to come visit this weekend Just for a night but I was happy to see he got to see the place before we moved. We owe him a HUGE thank you , he brought his horses down to Elgine Vet clinic and left his TRUCK and TRAILER for us to Pack up and drive home , THANKS SO MUCH !~! SO then today we bought a pickup, are job in Vernal is supplying us with a Truck but we decided you just shouldn't own horses without a truck and trailer of your own , so we bought an older used truck to leave on the trailer ! ALL this is happening quickly , yet I am happy we will be closer to friends and family . Things happen for a reason and we are truly blessed for having options!~!

Mr Fearless Fame what a cool horse , which I was so privileged to own , we sold him this week . He was such a friendly horse and its SO heart breaking I no longer own him !~ He was SO talented and I always thought he would take me far in barrels!~ However Bubba loves him and gives me a DAILY report on how he is doing. Hes making this older gentleman a rope horse and a friend to chase cows on . Thanks CLANCY for the opportunity to own him and Cameron Langston and Cody Hyde for training him so GREAT !~ I will miss you Chubby !~

Well we FINALLY had are second baby tonight, UNFORTUNITLY the colt was born with a birth defect in which the colt was born with some of his intestines on the outside of the abdomen due to an abnormal opening in the abdominal muscle. What a sad deal , the colt had to be euthanized and was a GEORGEOUS black, huge baby . Its 11:41 and we will be up some time with another mare possibly going to have hers also tonight . Wish us Luck for the next one !

Well were back from the HERITAGE !~! The sale went well and was a very fun experience . I ended up buying a prospect at the sale and he's ACTUALLY not a sorrel. Mark it down as my first different colored horse in a long time. We haven't named him yet SO ANY SUGGESTIONS please send my way. We also picked up another addition to the horse family today , even though my doberman THOR is bigger than him . Hes a cute mini pony that I wanted, I hope to be able to use him to TEASE the mares. We also haven't named him so HELP with some names...

<--THIS IS SPIRIT
BEANO ON 244 she dont have a name yet .
FRANKO on 250 ~
WELL ....Jimmy didnt get to race , what a bummer he was excited since he don't know when or if he could go back this year. The track was to crappy and things just didn't work out, I'm glade he got to see his grandparents though that was so important!~ While Jimmy was gone the boys and I had a fun two days , today we tested to see if the Recip mares were BROKE , ALL BEANO's idea but I was having a blast to say the least ! We just got 20 new Recip mares in this week , a Recip mare is like a Sergeant mother and Carry's the baby for are good mares , well when these mares come here we KNOW NOTHING about them no papers no nothing, most of them are rank mean horses , but seems to me we got ugly nice ones . Well Beano is all about riding so he just thought it would be SO fun to see if any of them were nice. Here's a few pictures!~

Just a lil UPDATE , since my last blog was a long semi-stressed blog. Jimmy is in Utah he flew home to drive the chariots and its first half FINALS . Sounds like the track isnt the best so hopefully they have the races and everyone is OKAY . Im still in Texas, we didnt dare leave the place alone with some of these mares ready to POP and with the other babys hurt . NO BABYS YET but very soon , SO hopefully Ill have new picts . NUMERO UNO is getting stronger and MEANER by the moment , he bites and trys to kick already. What a TERD, hes in a stall where he can be turned out In the day and MAN is he quick already . Well theres my small update , Ill post how the races go if they happen !~ Sould be a real tuff race with Weldon Racing Team and Stokes.

WHAT A DAY , Have you ever had a day where every time YOU turn around you pray things will be okay . TODAY WAS THAT DAY . It started out that Jimmy and I have been sick . Jimmy has had some form of the flu and I have a cold and were ZONKED out on NyQuil. We were woke up by BEANO yelling to come QUICK to the barn. I IMMEDIATELY thought "OH NO A BABY" due to the fact we have two mares who are due any day now, and I just have this FEAR that a baby is gonna be born and were gonna miss a TINY thing and they not make it . SO I jump out of bed and RUN to the truck . THANK GOODNESS it wasn't a baby , HOWEVER it was a two yearlings who have SLICED there chest open and need a vet ASAP . Sarah and I took the baby's to find that they will be OKAY , and many stitches and staples later we headed home. As soon as we were back to Farm the boys come running again. ANOTHER baby had a huge swollen shoulder and needed to be looked at. I just barley took the halter off and my phone rings, ITS ANOTHER filly in a different pasture with a swollen shoulder who needs veterinary care . I swear today was JUST ONE OF THOSE DAYS . Everything turned out better than I would have imagined , and all the baby's will be okay after some time, however we still had to FIGURE out what could have caused this. We searched the pastures ALL OVER , and with a some investigated (CSI STYLE) we have come to the conclusion Larry's Lab HARLEY has been the culprit. Harley got out yesterday and was out till 11:30 when Beto went to Turn off lights from the barn he noticed she had dug out of her stall and has developed a problem trying to play with the horses . ALTHOUGH my day was lifted when Jimmy and I become new partners to a stallion named Sixes Cartel. He is a corona cartel out of Dashing Folley , Jimmy and I are thrilled . It was a light at are end of are tunnel today . Are day is not done and we got two mares who are gonna pop!~ Wish us luck to a STRESS FREE evening and tomorrow to be a normal day .

Happy Holidays to all my family and friends. Christmas flew as usual , it was so great . The WII was a HUGE hit at the Vernon's all Christmas week , and the Padgett Christmas Eve party was really fun . I was so not excited to head home and leave everyone again , But I had my friends Clint and Meka flying back with us . Which made it a lot easier. They were here until Dec. 30 and we all had a blast. Now New Years flew right past us and were starting 2009 . Early this am we had are first baby , yep he wasn't due til the tenth but we had are own Lil surprise this morning . Hes a Teller Cartel / Yeah I Fly (Strawfly Special mare). The season has already started, I was so nervous , but now with this first baby being easy and healthy eased my mind that not all the deliveries will be stressful . Wish us luck the next 3 mths are gonna be crazy , I'm sure JUST like the Holidays they will FLY BY.
