Riding Season in Full Swing

Hi All! Well it has been quite awhile since my Mom has updated my diary with what we have been doing. For starters, we sure have been camping a lot. I think we have been camping/trail riding the last 4 weekends. We usually go for 3 days-Fri, Sat. & Sun. It's been a great Spring, warmer than normal & dryer than usual. Mom said the riding trails in all the state parks & forests have been in great shape. Oh yea, I got a hair cut. I mean I REALLY got a hair cut! I usually don't get it this short until middle of summer when it is very hot. Mom was a bit surprised as she told the groomer to trim me up but not take me all the way down. If Mom was surprised, she should be me! Ecccck! When Mom took me home & I walked in the barn, my Weim sister didn't know me & growled at me. I was so embarrassed that I ran to my room & hid. Mom & Dad had to coax me out. We were leaving to go camping/trail riding the next day & I had to go looking like this--no hair & my head looking like I had a helmut on! I was very quiet on the ride to the camp ground. Mom & Dad were meeting friends at the campground as Dad & his friend were going to trade horses. Dad's Rocky Mtn horse is very laid back with lots of trail miles & his friend thought he would make him a good horse. Dad's friend's horse was a pretty Rocky Mtn mare but she didn't have the experience. Since Mom & Dad have rode Arabian horses for yrs. that didn't bother Dad. I guess all went well on the trail rides over the weekend because we brought their horse home & they took our 'Country' horse home with them. Of course, since I have to sit in a grate while they are all out riding, I don't know how things really went. :-( Plus, I didn't feel good all weekend. I didn't eat very well & got sick a few times. Mom was worried because I am a very GOOD eater. Mom thought the drastic hair cut had kinda put me in shock. I slept all the way home. But when Mom & Dad got home from work on Monday, I was back to my ole bouncy self, carrying my ball around in hopes that someone would throw it for me! :-)
All is going well with Dad's new horse. Mom said she is very pretty & such a good girl. But if you ask me, she looks just like any other horse! AND pays no attention to me at all, when I bark at her to move. :-( We are going camping/trail riding again this weekend. Mom & Dad are trying to get the horses fit. Of course, me & my Weim sister get to go, but since we have to wait back at camp while they ride guess I will catch up on some zzzzzzzz.
Everyone have a good weekend.
Bark at you later............Shelby
