This time of the year also means racing! We are picking out races for our horses and training and I spend at least one weekend day at the track and sneak over there during the week when I can. I love hanging out on the backstretch, drinking my coffee, talking to everyone and helping with our horses. Porkchop (Da Ladies Man) has been training well and has had a lot of time off after his 3 races this winter. We picked a race for him at Churchill after Derby. Curtis (Da Money Man) is training like a big horse. He's been at the track a little over a month and my fiance says he's the one. Which is what I've been saying for like 2 years now. He's going to be a big horse. He has stakes potential. (BTW, Curtis is also my someday next event horse. He's super athletic. But I'm in no rush. He can race for a few years. But then he's mine!!!!)

And this time of year also means someday it WILL freaking dry out and I WILL be able to train outside again! Galloping and jumping and working on our dressage skillz. I have horse shows planned (to compete in and to do my giveaways for my insurance business) and clinics and I have had offers to come to a friend's farm to xc school. BUT IT NEEDS TO DRY OUT!!!!!!!!!!
But truly, this is my favorite time of year. I hate winter so much that shedding horses, warm days, longer lasting daylight, peepers, birds, geese, tall grass, leafy trees and riding outside make me positively giddy!
