Today I celebrate!!!!

For those of you who have followed my blog for a long time, you would know that me working cows what not something that looked likely to happen ever in my lifetime.
I am happy to say I took the DOR to a Joe Wolter cow clinic and showed her that I have not reached my potential yet.  I worked cows with the best of them.  Yes I moved a bit different from the other horses at times.  But what I can't do in speed or tight turns, I more than make up in lateral movement.  The DOR asked Joe to ride me to make sure she wasn't asking too much of me.  He did and said I was perfectly capable of working and holding a cow.  He noticed that I have figured out how to compensate for the things my body still can't do.  He also said I was a nice horse.  The DOR just about cried, she is so proud of me.
She has learned not to say "can't" about me, she now just says "not yet, but someday". 
The journey we have had this year has taken us from me starting back under saddle, to the mountains, Buck Brannaman, the ocean, numerous trails, and Joe Wolter.  I am starting dressage lessons with the DOR in November.  I am the little appy that could!! I am the little appy that WILL!!
So today I celebrate all that I have done in the past two years.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!
