What's been going on here??

Thanks to all of you for the BD wishes. Yes, I am now officially 60 - sounds old when you say it but one of my friends told me to embrace it - so I think I will try that for awhile. Tom and I both were on vacation last week. We started out our vacation by going to a steer show that Jessica and Tyler were in. It was in Medina and was quick. We were back in less than an hour. Jessica was her usual smiling self and did really good showing the calf. This was Tyler's first show but he handled it like he had been doing it all his life. He got first with his calf in the first class he ever went in!! Yeah Tyler!! They still need help from Dad and Grandpa.
On Tuesday we went to Columbus to the All American Quarter Horse Congress. We had never been there before and we were amazed to say the least. We watched some classes, saw some demonstrations, shopped and ate. We decided next year we will go for 2 days and see some of the bigger classes - like reining.
On Friday we headed to Kentucky. It was a great drive, beautiful Fall leaves and scenery. We ate out, went to the Kentucky Horse Park Farm and just did some seeing of the sites. Our favorite was a Blue Grass Driving Tour through all the thoroughbred farms. Just miles and miles of fence, big farms and horses. If you have ever seen the movie Dreamer it looked just like that.
After seeing all those beautiful farms I now want this (below) - board fence and stone walls. I think I'll be saving for awhile, but it certainly was spectacular.

Well its already Friday and raining. We have had several days of really nice weather which I spent entirely outside mowing, walking and generally enjoying the days (one weather forecaster said it was our Indian Summer). I do hope we get some nice weather - the joke in our house is that I have fence to paint - the board fence that we do have in that nice black color like above.
Enjoy your weekend!!
