Apologies, Thank You Kate, and Show Prep

First off, my apologies for disappearing.  I didn't mean to take such a long blog break.  My sister-in-law was seriously ill, we had one blizzard too many, and I was feeling pretty low.

April 22, 2013

But now Pat has passed a major medical milestone, and it's warm and sunny. The world is a beautiful place again, and I'm back in it.

Next, a big Thank You to Kate at The Adventures of Lucy.  I won a give-away, and Kate sent me this -

It's perfect for Clydesdale feathers, especially for those special occasions like the Christmas Carraige Parade, which happens when it's too darn cold to wash feathers!  But as luck would have it, we didn't have to wait until December to try out the Absorbine Stain Remover and Whitener.  Our friend Bob (Boomer's owner), called to ask if we'd like to take Boomer to a driving trial this weekend.  Heck yes!  So Friday was Beauty Shop day. 

Did we get those feathers white?
And how did the driving trial go?
  Tune in to the next post to find out.

Happy to see things are better now!
It seems everyone is having medical issues lately. Always think of the cup 1/2 full scenario if it helps.
ANd yes those feathers are sure enough white!!!

Sorry to hear about your sister-in-law. Hope it's all good now. Lovely picture of the ranch. It looks nice with the snow, that is while I'm far away and warm ;-)
