    Smile Starlite & Dream update and pictures overload!

    I just realized I've changed barns twice since last updating on here. LOL!

    Long story short, the barn we were at the BO told us we were going to kill Dream by turning her out in the mud & snow. She started changing the rules then saying we weren't abiding by them (well, yeah, those aren't the rules we signed a contract to) Our last week there, we were told we HAD to blanket our horses in order to turn them out if it was below 50 degrees, and they had to be in by dark if we turned them out. Basically, we HAD to leave because I don't think Dream would have made it through another winter there with her arthritis. I don't care what crazy said, that horse needs to be MOVING not locked up in a stall from November til May that was only cleaned 4 days a week. I don't pay 300 bucks a month for my horse to NOT be turned out and to be stuck in a disgusting stall. Oy!

    So, we ended up having to bring them about 30-40 minutes away for the winter. We only got to see them once or twice a month, it was QUITE a change! But they got to be out during the day & in at night and got awesome care. I never once worried about them. I thought they would have been staying there, but after an accident shortly after Christmas I didn't want to drive that far by myself, ever. But we probably would have liked them closer anyway. It was the first time I was sad leaving a barn, but so glad that the girls would be so close. So as of the 1st, they are about 10 minutes away and I love it! They are basically on pasture board, but also have stalls which is awesome. They spent their first night in last night because it was nasty out & Starlite wouldn't share the shelter...brat!

    They both had the winter off so they are being conditioned and we're trying to get them in shape. Dream is now being treated for IR & Cushings. I'd appreciate no comments on her weight, please, I'm very very aware she's very overweight and am trying to get her to lose weight. I think that is about it!

    On to pictures...I don't even know where to start. I guess I'll start with how they spent their winter!
    Rough lifes.


    Dreamer and I


    Starlite prancing


    Poor, poor ponies. I was chasing them.


    Crazy beast. This is what her winter workouts consisted of, about once a month.


    Snow covered Dream.


    Starlite




    Starlite learned to ground tie over the winter. On her own...but I'm not complaining!


    Spring pictures...yay for snowing melting!


    Dream giving me attitude, and stink eye.


    Riding Starlite bridleless. I LOVE this horse! She sat all winter and I can hop on her bareback and do anything. Not to mention bridleless! She's so good. Like a completely different horse (when it comes to riding anyway, she's stil got the same awesome personality!)




    No, I don't know why she is so good to me. LOL! This horse puts up with EVERYTHING.


    Romping around. Lookit Dreamer go!! (shes on the left)


    *more pictures, next post!!*

    Continued!

    Starlite Airbourne


    Dream getting scratches from me


    The girls at their new home


    Starlite making herself right at home. This is unusual for her, she rolled in front of one of the new BOs. Usually she's 'shy' about it!


    Dream taking advantage of the shed while I had Starlite out


    The second day there, they were moved to a BIG pasture! It's the biggest one they have been in for at least 2 years. And tons of trees - Dream was in tree heaven! She LOVES her trees.


    Dream: "I don't need you. I've got my tree friends!"


    Starlite and I on our first trail ride at the new place.


    Dreamer


    Starlite, more prancing


    Posing

    Dream is totally saying "kiss it!" with this pose...


    Starlite being a VERY good girl & actually relaxing a few days ago


    Sticking her tongue out
