Well well well ..... spring finally showed up in Arizona, if only for a week. Warmer temperatures and sunshine mean it's BATH time in the desert. I love that this guy hangs out here, singing to me every morning at 5:30 before the sun even comes up. An hour later, he's waiting at the feed station for breakfast.
This is Laila, the Chance granddaughter on her horse Max. He's had some leg swelling problems for the last few weeks and is the reason Laila missed the rodeo. They had only one chance to get him to the vet. Horses are cheap to keep ... said no one EVER!! This is her first time back in the dressage event. The hardest part is remembering the pattern you have to ride. They both did great.
