May in Minnesota

For Minnesota, this is the second wettest May on record and the wettest May since 1908, but it's also the warmest May in 24 years and the 5th warmest on record. We’re making the most of it and are looking for a warmer, drier June.

We began May showing horses at the Sahara Sands Spring Classic in St. Paul. We stalled with Angela and Kayla. It was lots of fun. Ian showed three horses in Halter: Renoir's yearling colt, V G Antazia (1995), AMF Xtreme Kiss (2006). Kiss was also shown in his first performance class with Angela. He didn't place, but he did well. Junior won his class, Taza and Kiss took thirds.

Sunday, May 13, was Mother's Day, Ian and I visited my 87-year-old Mom at the Vets Home in the morning. We went riding in the afternoon and rendezvoused with my son Richard in the early evening before we came home.

The dogs are fine. Tucker, the oldest, is not pictured, but all are full of energy and loving the days--wet or dry. The gardens still need trending, but I have gotten around to putting plants in pots and hanging baskets.

We spent Memorial Day Monday on a trail ride. Ian hadn't been on a trail ride for about eight years and he really enjoyed himself.

Scroll down and enjoy the month in pictures.
