What A Great Weekend!

This past weekend several of us from ETI Corral 88 went to the poker ride hosted by local gymkhana club the Dusty Spurs in Phelan. We had a blast! Even though the weather was not so great, being breezy and a little bit cooler than ideal we just bundled up and enjoyed a nice ride.

My daughter had the 5th best hand out of probably close to 100 hands and won an Outback Steakhouse gift certificate!! Woohoo, we're going to dinner! :) I was on down the list somewhere and brought home a huge jar of Mrs Pastures horse cookies which all the horsey kids here love.

Yesterday the weather deteriorated and it was really cold, so cold that we actually had brief snow flurries here! Can you imagine, late May?! After stacking hay and tending to some basics like cleaning stalls (one of my favorite things, sarcastically speaking of course :P) and scrubbing/re-filling water barrels, it was time for some good old fashioned hot cocoa inside.

This coming weekend is our ETI Corral 88 tack sale in Phelan at White Shadow Ranch (Saturday May 29th) and the following weekend is the fundraiser trail ride in Llano at Bill & Susie Figley's ranch. Check out our website, there are flyers available with all the information you need to know!

That's all for now...busy, busy, busy!!



  1. Yeah, I thought about all the heartier than I horse people out doing their thing this weekend. It WAS cold--AOL weather said it was 41 degrees, and "feels like 32," which I did not doubt at all.

    Glad you get dinner AND the horses got cookies.


  2. Sounds like a fun weekend. We have been having 85-90 degrees with horrible humidity--not fun. We are putting in central air but it is not done yet. No one expected this in May. Not having fun. At all.

  3. From wearing our jackets two weeks ago to 100+ degrees this past weekend!! I feel for you, phaedra ~ thankfully in this beautiful desert we have precious little humidity.
