Looking Forward To Tomorrow


Tomorrow, Steve and I will be making the hour and a half trek to Madison for the Midwest Horse Fair. It's been years since I've gone and Steve hasn't gone ever and I'm looking so forward to it. First on the agenda is to see Stacy Westfall at 10:00 am, unless we get there early enough to do a little shopping first ( I'm looking for a decent saddle pad for Kola ) . Then at 11:00 am, the Midwest Mustang Challenge begins and I want to have a chance to watch some of it and find Jessie and Jessi and their Mustang boys to meet them in person. Obviously I plan on getting some pics. I've got two cameras charged and loaded, ready to go. Printed out the maps of the grounds and the schedule of events. We plan on hitting the road around 7:00 am. Also, my friend Todd and his significant other will be there and we're hoping to bump into them, so I can meet his "sig" other. Todd has a new colt on the ground, the last from his now deceased Arab stallion. Toots is Mom. I've written about Toots before. So I'm hoping this will be a good day. Looking so forward to it!

That sounds like it will be a lot of fun. Hope you find the right pad for Kola. The only horse fair within range here is Albany and it's in another state. I have to say I miss them. I can't believe we don't have something local. Looking forward to pictures.

Mikael, That's a shame. Hoping I can get good pics cuz it's both indoors and outdoors and it's due to rain tomorrow. We are lucky it's right here in our area every year in April!

I hope she comes our way, but I do not know if she will. Hope you all get to see everything you want an dhave a great time. New tack is always a plus too!

Mrs Mom said...

hehehe Oh Steve-- have you ANY idea what you are getting your Brit self into now, Mate? ;) (Oh thats Aussies that say that, right? Sorry!)

Expect to see:
Glazed eyes at the shopping booths, and the formation of drool. (Tip: Bring towles to mop her up with...)

Lustful sighs over glorious tack... (Bring chocolate to snap her out of the saddle lust. Trust me.)

Bouncing uncontrollable excitement over favored clinicians. (Bring Vivarin for YOU.... hehe)

Chatter the entire way home- revved up mega speed chatter at that, about allll the wonderous toys and goodies that were spotted and ogled and lusted after. (Hey, could be worse. Least it wont be CLINICIANS that were lusted after! hehe)

Extra things to bring along (For YOU) Advil. Coffee in a thermos. Insoles for your sneakers (as you will walk your legs off). And of course, the Oh Holy Credit Card for that Must Have little goodie Simply Because You Love Callie! hehehehe

Callie, this sounds like so much fun!! I would love to go to a horsefair. I would shop WAY too much though! Can't wait to hear about the Stacey Westfall demo and hear about the mustangs!

Callie said...

Pony girl, Stacy is my hero!

Tracey said...

Will you be coming home with a mustang, Callie??? :)

MiKael, there's Ride the West, but it's over in Spokane. It's pretty unbelievable that there's nothing on this side, eh?

Callie...you'll be filling in the blanks over the weekend for us, right? I'm chomping at the bit here!!! I know Jessie won't have time.

Callie said...

I'll do my best Tracey, but we're only going today and the challenge is both today and tomorrow and auction on Sunday. That is why today and not Sunday...LOL, Stephen would kill me.

Rising Rainbow said...

OMG, mrs mom's comment is so funny! She is really a hoot. Hopefully Steve didn't read this ahead of time. He might have been scared off! lol

BTW Looks to me like you did ok on your "allowance."
