He must have found out what you said about Lil Roc and been determined to show you. You're a good motivator.

Your right. He must have found out! I shouldn't be blasting him on the internet! :)

I am laughin at what Pulled Porker said - too true!

That was amazing - I have never seen that type of competition and he was just awesome/keyed in to the calf he had to keep out - wow! [yes, you can tell I don't know what I am talking about - my terminology is awful lol]

Congratulations on the blue ribbon! :D

OK, Horses scare the crap out of me and I don't really like them. When you first came out in the video, I was like "Oh great, a show horse. She is going to just prance around and show how pretty her horse is"

Then you did all that cow stuff. WOW! I have no idea what that all was or what it represents, but it was waaaaay cool. You can tell that takes a lot of training and dedication and a good horse to do that.

I have no idea what I am talking about when it comes to horse routines, but whatever you did looked so cool and so precise and it got my respect.

Congrats and you can tell your hard work paid off!!!!!

Thanks Skippy Mom! Your right on!

Diamond Dog: Chunk and my job is to keep the seperated cow from the herd without any cues. Chunk has to "read" the cows movements... The judge then scores the run inbetween 60-80, 60 the low and 80 the high. If you are interested google "cutting horses". But, anyhow I really lucked out by finding a good horse, he is pretty special!

Thanks for the kudos! :)
