Spring. My favorite time of the year. The grass is turning green, the trees are just starting to bud out, and the sun has been shining. After a long wet winter riding in the indoor arena, it is so nice to be schooling out in the fields and on the cross-country courses again. Event Season, here we come!

Cheers,
Phyllis

     On our recent safari in Botswana, we saw many amazing things. While our land cruiser was crossing a plain, the carmine bee-eaters swooped and circled around the vehicle to catch the insects that flew up in front of it. I was able to catch this fellow grabbing his lunch.

 

Cheers,
Phyllis

     I recently returned from a fabulous trip to Africa. A group of friends and I went on a two week mobile camping safari in Botswana, visiting Savuti, the Okavanga Delta and the Kalahari Desert. This is the third time I have done a similar mobile safari, and this one was probably the best one yet. We had the same guide we had before, Gee, and he showed us an amazing time. We saw tons of wildlife, and I took many thousands of photos. As in the past, I will (eventually) write up a detailed trip report with photos to post, but it will take me months to get it done, so you will have to wait a bit. But in the meantime, I will post a few photos from the trip to give a preview.

Cheers,
Phyllis

     The Polar Vortex has been upon us, and like much of the country we have been enduring freezing temperatures and sub-zero wind-chill. Groundhogs Day is tomorrow, so we will see what old Punxsutawney Phil has to say about whether the end is in sight.

     I, however, am going somewhere warm. Jineen and I leave early Monday Morning for a mobile camping safari in Botswana.  Weather.com shows it is in the nineties there this week; I am ready for some warm. I canít wait to get back to the bush and see the wildlife; a group of us will be going with the same guide we have been on safari with before. I will tell you about it when I get back.
     In the meantime, I am lucky to have a super staff to run Windchase while we are gone. Much thanks to Cindy Anderson-Blank and Amy Faison for keeping everything going, along with Jean Bowman, and working students Heather, Nikki, Rachael and Sarah. Also thanks to our excellent farmhand, Jose, who keeps Windchase in top shape. We are lucky to have such an exceptional team at Windchase Eventing.
