How are you doing? Wow, it's been a long, long time since I stopped by to see you! This has been the craziest summer ever. Mama is always busy and somewhat insane but I think she's taken both to a new level because she's been insanely busy. :)

Without boring you with too many details I'll just say that she had to take several road trips for work and the past 3 weeks she's been literally working day and night to meet a deadline. But, it's good to keep busy, right? I just miss my nighttime blogging.

Thank you so much for stopping by Pippin's page and for all your votes in the Grazing contest. Mama said she was even further behind on HC so she caught up with blogs there today. He won! We were so happy to know that he received first place over all. We couldn't have done it without friends like you.

Pippin is doing is great as are the big boys. Mama sees them (Eddie and Prince) once a week to drive and she really likes driving a lot. She still wishes she could ride but she's happy that not only does she get to spend time with horses but she gets to drive them.

She takes Pippin out as much as she can. Not every day like they're used to because she's so busy but at least several times a week, even if it's just a walk.

Just the other evening she took him out for a cart ride with Melian. He hadn't been out for about a week and was feeling the need to stretch his little legs.

They were going at a nice trot for a mile or so. Once he warmed up properly he wanted to go faster so she set him at a fast canter. That got Melian interested in a race. They love racing each other!

So, she started teasing him by zigzagging back and forth under his nose and he chased her trying to nip at her bony butt.

Suddenly she did a rollback and accidentally rolled back onto her butt. She was SO mad. I think she felt embarrassed and she let out a huge growl. It was plain that she blamed Pippin and she let him know.

That got him going and he took off at an earth shattering gallop. It was the fastest mama has ever seen him pull a cart. She said it felt like it was going to explode into a million tiny parts. Wow, that was fun! He ran like that for over a mile. What a rush!

Fun, she says? Is she crazy? I'm glad I stayed home and kept away from that insanity. I like visiting Pippin in his pen but I stay away from the cart. And from Melian.

But mama was smiling and Pippin got a nice bounce to his step. She said that there's nothing like a good ride or drive to bring things back into perspective. I say there's nothing like a good nap to do the same thing. And it's safer.

Thanks for sticking by me even though I've not been around. I'm still not sure how often I can blog. Still lots of work to do.

Here's a vote for you and I hope you had a nice weekend.

PS I thought that this was cute enough to mention. The other night we were watching Olympic showjumping and Melian saw the horses on the screen. She loves running with the horses and she growled a
