Back in Texas

It has been a whirlwind few weeks, so sorry for the lack of blogging.  It seems I'm blogging less and less these days, and I probably am.

After the three day drive home from South Carolina and the National, we stayed home for a short time and then hit the road again for Texas for the Winter Trip.

I am happy to be in Texas.  I like it here.  But it is not home.

A picture of our pre-National group in Georgia.  We have all, for the most part, been pre-Nationaling together every year since I've been around.  It is always a fun time.

And Riot, who is a riot, FINISHED the National!!!
Here are Riot's owners, Brad and Diane, along with the Luckiest Man Alive.
And of course the man of the hour, Riot himself.

We are very proud of young Riot. 
2013 National Finalist

I just "happened" to have a Tiara in our truck and popped it on 2013 NFC Trumarc's Dot Com.
It made for a fun bunch of photos and all the more fun because Dottie is so photogenic.
Danny Farmer won the National and it is at his place that we winter in Texas, so we couldn't be happier for him and his wife Lisa.  They are good friends.

That tiara has been around…and won a few Opens, a Derby and now a National.

Training in Texas.
Hattie (not worthy of the tiara…yet…but one day...) and her photo hating Grandmother Darbi.

Hattie is a BIG girl.  We love her.  She's working on force to pile in the yard and is doing great.  She looks like she can mark and has TONS of horsepower.

Luckiest Man Alive said to me today: "I think you have a pretty nice dog there".

I had fun watching her dad "Juice" (FC AFC Fresh Squeezed Juice) at the National.  It was a sad deal to watch him go out in the 8th series, but I saw why he is such an awesome dog.
