I hit the road this weekend for some fun in the sun and good eats over in Palm Springs – about a 4 hour drive from my doorstep. The weather was perfect, about 85 degrees and sunny! I just got my permit from the DMV last week, so Mimi let me practice on the freeway since there weren’t too many other cars around (not that that means she feared for the safety of others… just clarifying).
I had been looking forward to this one for a loooong time. My Mimi says the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show is practically like Christmas for her because she loves it that much. She has been competing here since 2001, but this was my first time, and I already can’t wait until February 2013! I met cowboys, went shopping, and saw some of the world’s most beautiful Arabian horses.
This competition has been going on since 1955 and started with 50 horses. It has grown to nearly 2,500 horses bringing top owners, trainers and breeders from around the world. A win here can mean big money.
I walked back to the barn to check on Mimi before her big class tonight. She was a little nervous, but said she was just really excited. I couldn’t wait to see her and Gambler compete! … and GUESS WHAT?!

Hi dudes, ladies, n’ kiddies! I’m sorry it’s been so long… I’ve just been such a busy bunny. It’s been a jam-packed February for me with baseball games, horse shows, and just plain old bein’ a bunny. New post soon! I’m off to Palm Springs for the weekend to get my tan on, but I’ll be back – with a beautifully bronzed bod to boot!
