Buying Happens

Still recovering from the weekend. Everything is out of the car and the laundry is washed, but everything else? Not so much.

Normally I run a bit on the cold side – my nickname at work is “The Corpse” – but the heat in Kentucky this year definitely pushed me to my limit. That’s saying something!

I wasn’t planning on buying much; I briefly considered saving up the wad and blowing it on Marshall (the Polled Hereford Bull SR). It's not something I do often – buying something at market value! – but it's been a while, and I figured I was entitled. Especially considering all the nonsense I've had to deal with lately. 

But a wad of cash and a hotel full of horses? Buying happens. 

I even ended up – at almost literally the very last minute – buying another Marney Test Color.  The price was right and it was in one of my favorite colors, so it was a no-brainer, really. When I'm finally up to pulling out the camera, he'll be the first thing you'll be seeing from this year's modest haul.

It probably won’t be until at least weekend that I get to it, though. Still dealing with the consequences of Saturday. 

One of these years this darn trip isn’t going to “cost” me, one way or another. Sheesh.
