Weekend Sports

with Felipe


Saturday we went out to a jungle horse ranch.  They have almost 40 horses including  a miniature horse, and a Shetland pony, who just had a full- sized colt.  Evidently the gelding in with the mares only got half gelded–the vet left one in!  It was actually an undecended testicle so they believed it wasn’t producing.  Before they figured it out he’d impregnated 3 mares.  While Ali had a riding lesson, Trent played with the trainer’s son Felipe, who is a classmate.  They had a ball playing swords and king of the hill.  Felipe has a chihuahua named Spiderman who shook and shivered even when he was held;  Trent liked to carry him around and wanted to take him home.

We are 3 and we have sticks!

We had a full day Sunday, lots going on here.  The Campostela baseball, or beisbal, team came to Sayulita for a re-match, and lost again, oh me oh my.  The novelty having worn off, Trent was less interested in the game this time.  He played with toys, on the swings and with other kids from school.

What game?




In the late afternoon we drove up to San Pancho to see some Luche Libre.  This was just a small, free exhibition in the plaza.  I believe this is where we got the WWF from…it’s choreographed wrestling by guys in lycra suits and masks.

We returned to Sayulita in time for the 4th quarter of the Superbowl.  Raymond is from Indiana and expected a Colts blow-out.  Of course I had to bet against him just for the fun of it.  Last I checked he was still crying like a little schoolgirl.

    We can add the horse ranch on our list of things to do (when I eventually come for a visit)…….
    Bet you don’t know I was a WWF fan back in Hulk Hogan’s day. Of course, there is more to the story as I ended up dating the manager of the LA Sports arena!

    If you were to get Trent a doggie, how hard is it to return to the US with a pet?

      You hit on my only holdback to getting him one…we have the right situation (house, yard, neighborhood, time) here but the return is problematical. I will say though that I do not need a chihuahua as small and cute as they are. MUCH too nervous. SO glad you’re thinking of a visit! Anytime with us; May/June starts the low season rates for all the cute places on the beach etc…
