I didn't make anything today, but I did go riding, which is just as good.
My seasonal job ended two weeks ago. The goal was to earn enough money to buy a new-to-me car, and I accomplished that. It's a good feeling.
I'm still at loose ends on the tack making and blogging fronts, but hopefully, I that will improve with time. I guess we'll see.

I haven't had a lot of energy for the model horse hobby lately, but for some reason, I was inspired to make a dressage whip.
This could find its way into a live show set-up, but mostly, it's a cat toy.Get it, Aeh!
Maybe tomorrow I'll make something else.

Shortly after I announced I'd be going to BreyerFest, I was contacted by Stephanie at Breyer. She asked if I would be interested in taking pictures of BreyerFest Live and the Children's and Youth Show for Just About Horses magazine.Of course I said yes.
About a week ago, all my hobby friends started receiving their copies of Just About Horses in the mail. That's when I realized that I had forgotten to renew my membership to the Breyer Collector Club. There would be no Just About Horses coming to me. Darn it!
But... someone at Breyer loves me. Today, as if by magic, I found two copies of JAH in my mailbox. Thank you so much, Breyer!

For the past two weeks, most of my hobby time has gone towards judging the MEPSA October Performance show.
MEPSA shows, even the regular monthly qualifiers, are a big deal. This particular show had ninety classes, sixteen entrants and more than two thousand photos, most of which were really, really good.
Still, some were better than others, and none were better than these incredible mountain scenes by my friend, Corina Roberts. Thank you so much for allowing me to share them here, Corina!

I met a lot of great people at this year's BreyerFest, but no one impressed me more than seventeen year old Sarah Foster.

Last week was Fall Break.
Ryan is a high school senior, so it's likely this will be his last fall break while living under our roof. We decided to make the most of it, so on Tuesday, we piled into the van and headed out to Southwestern Colorado.
Great Sand Dunes National Parks.
Both of those places were awesome,
but I was equally excited to be visiting this place.
