I'm here, he's queer, Gareth wants a beer is what my friend Hamish announced when the three of us arrived in Pennsylvania this past weekend. Gareth has been talking with a friend of mine from the mid-state about going into business studding horses. So we decided to make a trip to the states during the Farm Show week so we can do some business, see some friends, and enjoy the events. A friend of mine took this photo at the high school rodeo this past weekend. I love how it shows the power of the horse and the grace of the rider.
I'll post more later in the week. We're staying at my friends farm and everyone is out right now cleaning the pens and horse stalls. Its freezing and I started coughing and had to come in, although everyone is suspicous of me and thinks I was faking it to get out of cleaning up crap. But I wasn't. So my penance is to make some dinner. I'm going make some scrambled eggs, sausage, bagels and cream cheese, cinnamon bread, and hot chocolate. Gareth just opened the front door, I guess to check on me and saw me at the computer and yelled get in the kitchen. I guess I'm not doing myself any justice by sitting at the computer as they work, so I better get in the kitchen and get some food started.
Hope everyone is enjoying their evening.

That's a tough business! Make sure Gareth understands that, knows his partners well, and keeps on top of things!

Welcome to the the Mid-Atlantic Region! Next time, give a holler. I'm not that far away!
