    No riding pics yet. I did ride on Friday, but my friend was busy with something else and couldn't take pics (and I don't trust anyone else with my $400 camera).

    I did get some just-for-fun pics of Aires, though.
    Coming to see Mom in his stall:

    This would be a cute pic if it weren't for the stupid flies:

    My rock star!


    And this is Aires' half-sister, Piper. They are from the same (fugly) sire. Piper was foaled within a month of Aires. No, she's not standing on sloped ground. The ground she is on is actually fairly level. She is just THAT downhill. Also, don't know if you'll be able to spot it, but her left front leg turns out. She went on the trailer in Canada perfectly fine...when they got her off the trailer in Arizona, her leg was turned out and they still can't figure out how or why. It doesn't bother her, though. She runs and plays with the other horses and the vet said she can be used as a light trail horse.


    You can really see her turned out leg in this pic:

    Again, she's on relatively level ground...she is just THAT butt-high!

    She is less than a month older (or younger) than Aires and he's two. They were foaled within two or three weeks of each other, but I don't remember if she was born first or if he was (I think she was born first).

    Piper takes after their sire with that looooong back and funky neck. Luckily Aires is built like a Percheron in (relative) miniature.

    Wow....thats a major difference....but then again, they are only half siblings, so that could be why their confo seems so different....I love his build!!!

    I've had two people in the last week ask me if I'd be interested in selling him. O.o The first was a guy who came to look at a QH gelding the BO had for sale (and ended up buying him). Then yesterday, this couple showed up at random and asked the BO if he had any horses for sale. The BO has one QH mare for sale, but the people weren't interested in her (they were really weird...first the guy said he didn't want the mare because she wasn't papered, then a little while later, he said he didn't care about papers). Anyway, they went wandering around the property and when they got back up to the barn (where we were all sitting), they asked the BO if all the horses on the property were boarders except for that one mare. He said yes (duh!). They then asked if he could contact the owner of the big black and white paint gelding (Aires) and another gelding that's a chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail (pretty sure they meant the BO's son's horse, Tonka), and see if they'd be willing to sell. The BO said "Well, the owner of that big black and white gelding is sitting right there. (pointed to me) Why don't you ask her?" They asked and I most definitely said "HELL NO!" Then they started asking how old he is and what kind of cross he is (because he's obviously not a pure paint) and all that and I basically said "He's not for sale, and won't be anytime in the forseeable future...so why are you asking?" Maybe I was rude, but they really made me mad!

    Wow!! IMO, I could see why they would want him. He is a gorgeous boy!! At least you know that if you ever do have to sell him, you shouldnt have a problem. But I know what you mean. The barn I just got Rodeo to, has a girl there that has 2 or 3 other horses, and she told the BO, that she wants Rodeo, and that she wants to be the first to ride him, she wants to train him, she wants to use him for barrels, and what not over and over again....then the BO told me about it, and was basically asking me so she could tell the girl a yes or no answer.....I just don't know, lol....just hoping her "obsession" with him doesnt mess, or do anything to the training that were doing, and will be planning on doing

    There's a girl at our barn like that, actually. She has a four-year-old paint gelding who is horrible (only with her, though) and bucks, rears, and has even sent her to the hospital. She found out that another boarder is interested in selling their 7yo mustang who is an amazing arena horse and all of a sudden she's lost interest in her gelding and wants this mustang. The BO flat-out told her that she can't take care of her horse (he's colicked four times in the last two months because she runs him hard, puts him away hot, and then feeds him grain right away), so she doesn't need another horse.

    Wow!! Yeah, that doesnt sound any good....it wouldnt bother me so much, but she is the BO's granddaughter, so she feeds, turns out, and brings the horses in from the pasture....she already has this whole "game plan" of what she wants to do with Rodeo. When the BO told me about it, she was basically asking me, for my permission for her granddaughter to let her work with Rodeo...she seemed kind of bummed out a little, when I didnt respond to "yes, of course you can" LOL, but oh well.

    Just have to share a proud momma moment with Aires today.

    I was going to ride, but am still coughing really bad and feel just drained (I have bronchitis, of all things!), so I just turned Aires out with his two best friends, Rex and CJ.

    There is this lady who is one of our overnighters who is just absolutely awesome. Everyone loves her, she's an absolute sweetheart and she'd do anything for anyone. She gave me a brand new 78" custom-made winter blanket for Aires, complete with hood, for free the last time she was here (she got rid of the horse it was made to fit and the people who bought the horse didn't want the blanket). This time, she had all sorts of goodies with her. She gave me a nice, big Kensington fly mask and a water bottle bag for my saddle. She gave my friend some stuff too.

    Anyway, my proud momma moment came when I went to try the fly mask on Aires. This is the horse that actually reared up on me a little when I tried to put a fly mask on him a month and a half ago. So, I put him in his stall, undid his halter (but held it in place with one hand) and then slipped the fly mask over his ears. He didn't even try to pull away! He just stood there and let me put it on him! :-D YAY for deciding that a fly mask isn't going to kill him! I was really wanting to put a fly mask on him because the flies really bother his face (not the rest of him, but just his face).

    Anyway, here's a pic of my handsome boy sporting his "new" fly mask.
