Photo courtesy Horse Master with Julie Goodnight "Stand By Me"
Hardly the most flattering picture of me or Estes, what with me hanging like a monkey off of her back and Her Highness' ears pinned back. There was even a comment by Oregon Sunshine asking why Her Highness Queen Estes was being naughty and walking off.
The photo I was expecting to see was the one that Julie and Heidi have been using on Julie's blog banner and in some of the print media...
Yep, that's us in the lower left corner. A much more flattering picture than the previous one, isn't it?
I had two picture notifications on my Facebook account; the first one was that horribly unflattering picture of me and Estes. I'm not so bright sometimes, so I couldn't figure out what I'd done to Heidi to make her post such a picture. I went ahead, with some trepidation, and clicked on the second picture notification. And then it all fell into place.
My episode with Estes is one of the shows featured on her upcoming Trail Solutions DVD:

Yup, there's my arse hanging off of Estes. The other pictures are at least cool looking, but there's nothing cool looking about not being able to mount up. Even though I have a copy of my episode, I'm going to order this DVD, because I've been dying to see the Wave Runner episode since I read about it on her blog.
Since this is such a cool suprise - being included on the DVD - I might forgive Heidi for that horrible, horrible picture.
I should mention that I'm not paid to promo Julie's stuff. I just thought it was cool and wanted to pass it on.
