I was supposed to take my son, Jakob, to his first 25-mile ride a couple months ago. We had planned on riding the Fireworks 25, but one week before the ride, Beauty had a swollen eyelid (probably caused by an allergic reaction from a bee sting). After 3 days of Benadryl treatments, she was fine, but the night before we were supposed to leave for the Fireworks ride, Beauty came up lame on her left front leg. Jakob was extremely disappointed. He cried a lot that night, but then we decided to pick another ride to attend. 

We decided on the Patriot’s Day 25 at Lake Almanor on September 11. However, we never made it to that ride either because we were in the middle of moving. Although escrow had been scheduled to close the week before, our loan documents did not come in time. When we finally received the documents we needed to go forward with the sale of the house, we were in the middle of a busy week. My dad drove up from Orange County, my brother and his girlfriend came from the bay area and for 3 days we were throwing things in boxes and bags and shuttling back and forth from the old place to the new place. 

The first night we spent in our new home was September 10th, even though we did not actually close escrow until the 15th. We are all enjoying the new house, but I know I won’t feel like it is a home until the horses are here. Right now, I am boarding the horses at the ranch where we used to live while I get things set up for Asali, Beauty, and Forest.
