And My Excuse is….

By Patty Wilber

No real blog today and here is my excuse:

1. Four 5 am to 10 pm days of showing in a row (sat-tues, not including prep last Friday and clean up extending through this Thursday!)  A two day Appaloosa show followed by State Fair. (Did well!  Qualified Whispering Spirit Ranch’s stallion A Para  Dox aka Buckshot for Junior Reining, Hackamore Reining, and Working Cow for 2012 World Appaloosa Show; Penny (registered name: Chips at the Bar) won High Point Performance Horse (Appaloosa show) and High Point Junior Horse (Buckskin show). Everyone is exhausted.

2. Back to work for Weds and Thurs to rediscover that I want to teach biology NOT computer science but I have to be an IT expert to use all the programs (Blackboard Learn, McGraw Hill Connect, Pearson’s Mastering Biology) and get them to function with Windows 9 Million, Safari So Sorry, Internet Explosion, and Google the Chrome is Peeling. (Ok they are not all that bad, but the browsers react in a plethora of ways to the “educational” programs.)

3.  Heading to the High Country at O Dark Thirty today to gather the cows.  Yee HAW.  Back Sunday night, with the critters and will drop them at Winter Place #1. Not much grass so they will move to Winter Place #2 in about a month. I can’t believe how lucky I am to be able to live that dream.

Next Week:  Rode Hard and Put Up Wet.

About BlogPatty

Here's the skinny: I have a thing for horses. They make sense to me. I have a small horse training business (it's a "boutique" training business, not because it's super fancy, but because the horses get a lot of personal attention). I also go by Dr. Wilber, and teach biology full-time at a Central New Mexico Community college.

    Hope you’re having a great time!

    PS I sure hear you about the browsers. Doing web design around Internet Explorer is a PITA!!
