Interesting Stuff From South Australia

At Naracoorte in SA I experienced my first live horse dancing competition. This is where the riders get music to match the horses hoof prints and they need to carry out a certain number of pace changes during the event.

I saw some terrible exhibitions of this but there was one lady who stood out totally, forgive me for not remembering her name, I will find that out but she used the classical track by Elgar - Pomp and Circumstance March No 1

She had it arranged at a sound studio to get the tempo of the track changed to match her horses hooves. Unlike many of the other contestants she didn't need to cut the track and leave horrible pauses in the track.

It stood out magnificently and i was so inspired. I can't wait till i get my next horse, I will have it dancing around in no time :)

These are some friendly Kookaburras that visited us at Pete's Place In Mundulla South Australia

I thought this seat and table was interesting. You can find it outside the tourist centre in Bordertown South Australia.

Stallion ... He Bites

One of my adventure days in Naracoorte in South Australia me and two friends were wonderring through the stables after the eventing was finished.

Se came across this horse who was overly friendly with his mouth and we all decided he might be a bit bitey so we should keep clear of his stall.

Then we noticed the fine print on the canvas sheet by his head, it says "STALLION ... HE BITES"!

We thought the owners could have made a bigger effort on the signage lol :)

Stress & Destressing

Well as you can see it’s been a few weeks since I last posted something, I’ve been traveling all over the countryside.

I will start posting my pics and stories shortly but for now I wanted to tell you about my day. My life has turned un-necessarily stressful recently and having once had burn out I can feel it coming on a bit recently, so I’ve decided to pull away from those people and situations that detract from my happiness.

Today I spent the day cleaning my mum’s back area which has that horrible fake grass that collects dirt and with three dogs in the backyard they make a great mess of it all. After vacuuming and washing walls and thing tops it looked like a million dollars and I was so proud.

I was still feeling a little wrestles so decided to tackle some weeds in my front yard and have only got raking and disposal of them to go.

I guess when all these jobs are done I can start focusing on work again but for now I am happy pretending I am stress free.

It’s pretty funny sometimes I will be watching tv at mum’s house and I will warn her that some shows are prone to making me cry and she laughs but without fail the waterworks have started before the end of the show.

I guess I am being a little emotional but until I find my place in this beautiful world I will remain emotional lol

You will just have to get used to me the way I am J

Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope you take the time to add your thoughts to it and inspire me some more. I hope also that you can find some inspiration from what i have to say. I am always asking people to tell me their dreams, often in hearing what other people want from life we can expand our own boundaries and achieve more than what we had ever wished for in life.
