And congradualations on your pregnancy!!! My trainer/best friend is pregnant too! It's really hard because she's a high risk pregnancy and on bed rest and Cricket is my first horse and I'm a paranoid wreck. I called her one day because she had a runny nose and I was like "Molly!!!! Cricket has a runny nose what do I do!!!" and Molly got all quiet she she goes, "Nicole... What did you do when Shrek had a runny nose? Wipe it on your jeans..." And I was like O_O Oh, duh!I'm a paranoid wreck.
But anyways, it's hard because Molly is on bedrest and can't do much of anything because of her pregnancy and I really wanted her to be there when I rode Cricket for the first time... And I sort of feel like I'm on my own now and she's always been there for me untill now. Sort of like walking me through. But it's good too because I need to do things on my own and she can't always be there to protect me, you know? I completely understand and I'm so happy for the baby (It's a girl and I love her very much. Me and Molly are really close...) But it feels weird to be on my own in a huge ranch I don't even know without my trainer! Lol I feel like its the first day of highschool all over again without my mommy! Oh boy. And of course I'm VERY intimidated because the ranch consists of mostly older, more experienced riders who have been working with horses their entire life... And here I am a sixteen-year-old girl who's been riding nine years and I look like a baby compaired to them. And I'm scared to do things around them because I'm afraid they'll get mad at me for some reason and critisize me really harshly. I'm all up for constructive critisism, but I've had a few horrible trainers in the past and I'm very self concious. Things go alot smoother when I don't think about it.
Scout is handsome! If he wants, he can be Cricket's boyfriend!!!!!! Sorry I hijacked your thread, I just got a bit carried away. As said, I'm exhausted. And I ramble when I'm exhausted... Like I'm doing now.
