And then, perusing through posts past, I wonder... Sugar and I were good, weren't we? Ok, our record reflected my college career - we either aced it or flunked. Then I think, wait... we had the training, great coaching, talent, desire, a good work ethic and the desire to do well. And, dear god, we had GREAT lessons and performed relatively well in clinics.... What was missing?

Last year, Maisy was amazing with her Happy Young Professions (HYP). She was green, game and seemed to love showing off without being a diva. The HYP brought her along consistently and lovingly. I did compete her at the end of the season I was still myself with a missing GRRRR but it was fun and hard and fun... What was the change? What was the change?
OK, some of you are saying, "that this all so obvious! Please, get with the picture, you have a new horse!" Maisy is sooooo different and that she is what the change is! JEEZ, do I have to give you a head smack?" Sighing and shaking your head, you walk away...

|Hmm... better get a new one!|
Yeah, for the first 4 years competing Sugar, I had a USEA sticker on my car and my trailer. Those years we were kicking butt and taking names. Then, I got a new truck and trailer timed exactly when the USEA gave out magnets. Magnets are nice but I have 7 of them on my refrigerator and none on car, truck or trailer. Our results got sketchy.
Along comes Maisy, USEA sticker (bought at the Annual Meeting) on car, truck and trailer... She rocks with HYP and I begin to rock on her and at shows... Call me crazy but the luck is in the USEA Sticker.
Today, after another snow storm, mine looks like this... I'm left pondering... is this good enough?
