Jolie In Training

I’m interrupting the post I originally planned because I would like to share a photo that touched me and brought tears to my eyes.

Yesterday, my daughter loaded Jolie on a trailer and made a six hour drive north to Tallahassee, Florida.  There is a woman up there who has experience in breaking wild mustangs and apparently, she has a real knack and reputation for accomplishing it quite quickly.  She is going to work with Jolie for the next 30 to 60 days and get her rideable.

My daughter just emailed me this photo she took of Jolie’s first lesson this morning.

That blue eye does look a little wild with alarm but…

JOLIE ACTUALLY HAS A SADDLE ON HER BACK!

Hi Shari! I pray all goes well the that most gorgeous horse! A little prayer never hurts! :)
I'll be looking forward to hearing about how it all turns out.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I SHOULD have commented on your header... It's just awesome... It's dark, rainy and dismal here so I haven't been able to take any pix... I can't wait!

Yep, I somehow think the thrifting just might get in the way of the washing and packing part!... But we'd have lots of time to giggle.

Huggies,
Spencer
