Anxious for Sunday

Tomorrow Colton will ride a horse into the arena for the first time by himself and he is so proud! I am scared to death yet excited at the same time. The grin on his face says it all when you ask him about it. He will participate for the first time in goat ribbon pulling at the fair grounds tomorrow afternoon. For those of you that don't know what that is, no fear because I didn't have a clue until about a year ago. He will start at one end of the arena all by himself and ride the horse about 3/4 of the way down and stop the horse by himself and jump off and run to the goat, pull the ribbon on his tail and then run across the line. You would think in big people terms, he won the lottery. I'll get pictures, but here is one of him jumping off during practice Thurs. night. Say your prayers for a smooth ride.
