Well, I returned two days ago from Chincoteague. Got to go down there for a week, see the Swim and the Pony Penning. Too bad I was ordered not to bring a pony home, or I might have done just that.
It was SO much fun! We got to visit the Beebe Ranch, where Misty of Chincoteague ((Made famous by the book of the same name by Maurgerite Henry)) was kept. Saw the preserved Misty, and her third, final, and most famous foal, Stormy. Saw a fifth generation descendent Angel, and her father, fourth generation, Misty descendant, Nightmist.
Nightmist lives up my way, in the tri-state area. and he has the most gourgeous blue eyes. *swoons*
Was SO happy to be back in Jersey though. I got to ride Carlo the past two days. And boy was he hyper. Normally he's ridden everyday 'cept Monday. While I was gone, he was ridden two days. He was a firecracker just waiting for a light on Saturday.
Sunday he was much calmer. We got to ride outside. The ring was dry enough after all the rain we've had lately, although it wasn't the best footing. We worked lightly today, then had fun. He went out, and got all wet 'cause it rained while he was turned out. But he knew I wasn't going to ride him again, and I wasn't riding on Monday, so he DIDN'T get dirty...
On Saturday, we had a small picnic at my uncle's. After dessert, E and I decided to play volleyball. That didn't work out too well... it quickly turned into a game of, keep the volleyball away from Peanut and Pootie (the dogs) by the time we wore Peanut out, we were really just playing a game of kick the ball back and forth.
I'm really tired right now... My allergies had a flare up while I was down in Chincoteague... *rolls eyes* I'll do something 'bout that... mainly just need to sleep in... and I can do that tomorrow!
