My horse trainer had another uber talented young trainer at the barn yesterday to give a few lessons to those who signed up. His name is Brian Hafner and he is destined for the Olympics. He used to board and train his horses at Cheryl's barn and we've had the pleasure of watching his talent and career begin to soar. Besides his talent, he has a genuine kindness and quietness about him, a modest way that can be so rare to find among very talented equestrians. Some young equestrians get to a point where their parents spend major dollars to buy a horse for them to show. Brian bought a young horse when he was still in his teens, and has done all the training himself.
Cheryl's granddaughter is becoming a very talented young rider with her Thoroughbred, Donte. It's also been a pleasure to watch her grow with him over the past 4 years.
And just who was the icing on the cake yesterday? The most delightful of the entire beautiful November day? Well, it was this little girl, Roxie. She is Cheryl's newest addition to the ranch and she just makes everyone's heart melt.
Roxie's new best friend is a cat named Simon. He loves her and lets her play with his tail....for a while. Love that Simon.
It was such a nice day, I wasn't even all that upset when I got home and the AT&T network was out again. I don't know what's going on with them, if they're upgrading equipment or what the heck. It's just becoming a PITA, if you know what I mean.
It's cold here this morning so I need to close now and get another cuppa hot coffee. I hope you have a very nice Tuesday and thanks for stopping by.

Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
