A Cure for the Monday Morning Blues: Horsing Around with Torero & Purple
After the crazy heat this week, it was nice to relax a little bit with the horses in these “cooler” 80 degree temperatures over the weekend. They were just as happy as we were for a break from the nasty 100+ degree heat. Especially Purple as the heat made him very sick this past week and he has lost a lot of weight very quickly from it; he didn’t do well with the heat at all. Thankfully it has cooled down and he is getting back to his normal self and eating like a pig again. Now they are all playing, horsing around and back to their silly goofy selves. Torero really thinks he is something special (but I think I’d have to agree with him on that one). Is he funny enough to help cure those Monday Morning blues? What do you think? 😉
Top Torero attempting to be serious.
This is the REAL Torero though…. 😉 Signature move: his tongue hanging out. He’s so silly.
He’s got a lot of personality! So fun to watch these guys.
The other weekend I went with the girls to Galway Downs down in Temecula, California to go watch Sarah & Big and Becky and Tamale in a clinic to prepare for the upcoming event at Copper Meadows this weekend. Bunnie Sexton taught the clinic that they rode in and it was so awesome to watch! Both horses did great and I can’t wait to see how they do at the show this weekend down at Copper Meadows! Hope you enjoy some of the pics of all the action!
Big is ready to go and one of the super cute pups at Galway Downs!

D you know anyone who loves or admires the beauty and free-spirit of the horse? If you are as horse crazy and love horses as much as I do, then you’ll want to go and see anything Cavalia does. Artistic director and creator Normand Latourelle has created another masterpiece with a dreamlike setting that mixes inspiring acrobatics and high-tech theatrical effects. Cavalia’s “Odysseo” is an odyssey to different enchanting lands. It’s like a Disney Movie, but even more magical with all the colors and dancing ponies that prance into your heart. The show opened in Burbank, on February 27th, 2013 and runs until March 31st, 2013. I was ever so lucky to be invited out to their VIT (Very Important Tweep) Night on March 13th, 2013. You can bet I was beyond ecstatic to find out that after only dreaming of being able to go see this show, it was now becoming a reality, AND I was getting to go as a VIP? A week later, it still only seems like a dream! Lucky for me, I have many pictures (500ish) from this magical night to show that indeed this most special night DID happen. 😉
Here is a mini version of our night, and what you can expect as a Rendez-Vous VIP with Cavalia!
