Oh woe is me! Neighbor Chuck is off this weekend to Wyoming for a big cow horse show. Team Elvis is off this weekend to Boulder for a really nice dressage show. And I'm on injured reserve! Drat!
So to cheer me up, friend Jan (Elvis' owner) sent me a link containing a free sample clip from the symposium we went to (Elvis' first gig). In the clip, Elvis is the training level horse Janet Foy refers to as an over-achiever. Yes, it helps. I'd rather be doing just about anything other than hanging around. I'd love to be working side by side with my beloved David, cleaning our horses stalls. I'd love to be scrubbing troughs (thanks, Funder), painting runs or doing pasture maintenance. Heck, I'd rather even do housework. Well, maybe not housework! ;)
