[RC] THE NC ROCKS!

On Behalf Of Maggie Mieske


Hi all,
My fingers are freezing. Kudos to Cindy, Ruth and Carol....they are
wonderful. All of the people are wonderful here. I am looking forward to
being vetted under all of these wonderful and talented people who care
about our horses. There is some tough competition here. Some people
didn't show but it'll still be tough. We pre rode the trail
today...BEAUTIFUL!!! It's windy and chilly tonight though. Will blanket
the horses!!
Max and Malik vetted in with all As and have been eating and drinking like
piglets. :) This is an experience...country like we have never seen! The
big rocks make Malik snort and blow but he can't wait to see what is on the
other side of those hills! :) He's like that bear that went over the
mountain to see what he could see! :)
OK, ride meeting over, fingers freezing (I'm outside doing this!) so must
go and get some sleep and brief the crew and settle the horses in for
the night. Oh, and get some sleep. Yeah, right.
THANK YOU to everyone who made the NC possible. Oh, and we received the
prize for travelling the farthest...a basket of shampoos and Cowboy Magic
stuff. :) We'll need it after riding in all this dust!!
Good night, all....tomorrow!
Miles of smiles,
Maggie

The turkeys have landed!
