Effol Passes the Test

This post was supposed to go out Saturday morning…some how everything but the tags and title was deleted. I protested by ignoring WordPress for the weekend, even though I’m pretty sure it was my own fault.

What I wanted to tell you is that the Effol “Ocean Star Spray Shampoo,” I bought a while back, is awesome. This past week has finally been hot enough for me to start giving the horses bathes. I only used the sample bottle that came with the bigger one. So far, the sample bottle has washed three horses and still has some more to go! I love it! It smells good and suds-up really well without needing a lot. I’m pretty sure it would be easy to make my own spray shampoo but for now, I’m going to enjoy this stuff. I highly recommend it!

Did you watch the Derby? I did, of course! My top 5 did…well…I had Bodemeister and Dullahan in the middle of my top 5 so that was ok. My top two, Take Charge Indy and Union Rags didn’t do anything, and El Padrino at the bottom of my list didn’t do anything either. It was a crowded field to say the least. I was really impressed with Bodemeister though, and Dullahan was making a bid for it at the end. I look forward to seeing those two race more.

It was a bit shocking to hear about the murder at Churchill Downs after the race. I can’t help but think of Dick Francis though. It’s like one of his books in real life!

In other news…I passed, not passed, dominated (haha!) my Senior Seminar class and earned an A+ for my final grade. I have never felt such relief! I haven’t celebrated it yet, but I will for sure!

I also got to spend a wonderful day at the barn yesterday and rode both Milo and Tango. Mom even had a good ride on Ozzy. I’m starting to get back in the groove of riding and actually having time to now!

Enjoy the cool photo below! (I just happened to see it when I looked up the murder story)
