August 2009 Issue

I hope everyone is enjoying their July issues!
Yesterday, we looked at blueline for the August 2009 issue. I must have lost my proofreading goggles, because when I sat down to review it, I found all sorts of problems I had previously not seen. But we got it taken care of, and after sending quantity on Monday, it should be printed and in the mail by August 5!
I did not get to post a photo of Hoosier in his new fly-protection get up, because he TORE IT UP before I got a chance. First, while destroying the so-cute leopard print fly mask I picked up for him out in Bishop, he put a hole in the neck part. Then, about four minutes after we got to Shelbyville, he put both hooves through the body part and ripped two huge holes in the shoulder. So, back to square one on the hunt for the perfect fly protection wear. For now, he has got to deal with fly-bands on his legs and a boring old black fly mask.
Even though I am the only one in the office right now, there is a little drama going on...We have had so many hits on our website this month that we exceeded our bandwidth limit, and the website is down. It is kind of a bittersweet moment...I have worked really, really hard putting the website together, so I am glad that everyone is enjoying it...but, it doesn't matter how hard I have worked if no one can see it! I am patiently (not so patiently, actually) awaiting a call from our former webmaster to give me the info to upgrade our web hosting package. Once I know who our host is, I can fix it, but until then I am out of luck...
Back to Shelbyville. Hoosier and I placed quite well in the English classes: 3rd in senior hack, 3rd in amateur hack, and 3rd in hunt seat eq. I am looking for some Hunter-Jumper shows around take him to in order to keep him entertained...
Camri had a good time at Shelbyville (5th in leadline!!!), and again at our town fair, which was the next week. Monday, we took a trip to the Magic House in Kirkwood, Mo., and she got quite a kick out of that, too. And it looks like we are headed to Branson this weekend to the Dixie Stampede...
It has been unseasonably cool here...but I am not complaining. It beats having to ride at 8 p.m. to escape the heat.
As soon as I get the website back up (fingers crossed!), I am planning on adding videos to the "M&M Store." There is quite a wide selection, so don't forget to go on and check it out!
