..to tell you all about my first show (of this year for me).. a small all breed schooling show that I had plans to ride in last Sunday. Atlas.. it was not to be. Oliver threw a shoe and the farrier has been trying to catch up after being ill and just could not make it by in time.. boo hoo..
Thankfully, there is another show just like this one in about a month. We shall shoot for that one and then I will have to send off my sidesaddle for restoration.
Instead of showing, I went to my parents house to gather a few more things. Those of you who read my other blog know that my Father passed away in early May. My Mother preceded him 5 years earlier, so now my brothers and I have divided up their things and are bringing them home. Thankfully, nothing will go to auction.
My parents were not horse enthusiasts, so although I now own a lot of art.. none of it is horse related. I do love some of the pieces though. My favorite is a life size bronze bust of Giuseppe Verdi, wearing a top hat and scarf. Truly Victorian!!
So - anyway .. for now, I will continue to salivate over pieces like this!
