I'm not going again as usual (sigh) but this time it's not hurting me so bad. I don't think I could stand not being with Timmy!
And of course I also need to be here to supervise the barn building.

We are not going. It is hard for Lee to get that much time off from work since he is a teacher. Hopefully he will retire in a year or so & we may start going then -or not................. Having been to a couple of A nationals I am not that thrilled spending that many days at a show anyway. I have my one top ten trophey in showmanship .............. Like you I would rather stay home & be with my babies.

We will be home, no nationals for us. But, we will go to the world show. No corgi national either, that starts next weekend
since my girl is sick.

Oh well, I am off to the AMHA office this afternoon for a fun weekend reviewing software and interviewing IT candidates. Should be interesting, since my comrades in this adventure are west coast people and I am east, as in time zones! I'll be the morning person, they will be the night owls....

I do have my laptop packed so will be online from time to time.

Home Sunday afternoon.

BooHOOO! I am not going either. I wanted to go as a spectator but couldn't swing it. I went a few years back to Reno and also Lexington Va. I had terrific fun and met so many nice people. I hope to go again sometime.Maybe someday even to show( hey< I can dream!)

I had planned to fly down and watch for a few days but now that I am moving my salon to a new location I just can't do it.
I will be going next year for sure!!

We aren't going either. Really kinda bummed we've gone the last few years. But we have to get this property sold and it's not happening. We've closed on a place on the other end and need to spend money and time getting the fencing and shelters up, stalls and whatever.We've "landscaped, put in 7 hydrants and run electrical. Now I'm stewing about how long I can pay a double mortgage and the cost of heating both places this winter if this doesn't get sold soon.

I'm about to switch real estate agents I think and hope that gets us a new start.

This is the "pits" but priorities matter. We even had motel reservations and a stall for our boy Billy.

We so do love going.

But it will be there next year and hopefully we will be in better shape.

I'm home, rooting for my friends who are going. I hoped to find someone who might take Mercy with me paying her expenses and we qualified her but nobody wanted to take her.

Maybe some year we can go - type 1 diabetes limits long distance car travel for me and this year I am recovering from more knee surgery (1 week ago today).

Good luck to all who are going - can't wait to hear the results!

To your left
I'll be right here, watching for everyone's results.

I hope someone on this forum will be taking their laptop so that we can share the experience vicariously...

I'm not going either , maybe next year.But I do have a Senior Stallion,KNOLLACS FLASHY ILLUSION, my homozygous pinto there with James Walsh of Rocking Horse Acres. Hope he gets a ribbon. But we am going on a much needed vacation to Idaho and Montana and leaving on Sept 12 for 10 days. This is the first time in over 7 years that my significant other and I have been away together.He likes the mountains so I am taking him to see some big ones.He is so good about staying home to take care of the horses&dogs while I get away lots to do my Mini Horse stuff. He deserves a nice trip. Then I can go lots in the coming year. Good luck to all who will be there&maybe I will see you next year in OK or TX

I'm supposed to make a quick trip there today to pick up a mare and drop one off. No showing there for me as I am going to World, but might be able to sneak in a little visiting, if I can ever find out when I am leaving!

When the Walshes told me they had decided to go to R nationals I was so excited and was ready to go. However, things didn't work out for me this year. Maybe next year.

Cole is home with me now having a blast with his 1/2 brothers.

Thanks goodness, no-not going to the R Nationals(never have, and likely never will), nor to A World(have been there, done that, intermittently since '91, and have my share of Top Tens). No question, it IS exciting-for about a day-then it gets 'old' fast, IMO...though the shopping is great, and I always enjoyed the socializing!

I do hope to go again, to observe and research the measurement practices.

I do wish the best to all those who go with high hopes and a sportsmanlike approach!!

Well I'm not going to R Nationals, can't swing going to both..........

But I am flying over to the A Worlds, just to watch, for 3 days


The hotel I'm staying at has free internet so I will try to update at night.

And I will be taking huge tons and gobs of pictures, so when I get back I will clog the forum with World pics


Can you tell I'm excited........only 1 month to wait
