Who wants to meet the best pony in the WORLD??

YES! I finally have pictures/video of my namesake (:

"My" poor baby has been on and off lame since a pony show I think like a month ago. No one can figure out why, so for now we're just guessing that all those jumping lessons (he IS 17, after all!) are finally catching up on him. We know he has arthritis, so maybe it's just getting bad?

Anyways I asked if I could ride him and Sarah said I could hop on him and see if he was sound. He was a little off at the walk, and noticably off at the trot. I did a little walk/trot to see if he would loosen up at all but he didn't So I got off and tacked up Joey. But I got a short video of him, and a picture!

After I got on Joey, it started raining. Hard. Our indoor echoes like MAD when it's raining, so Joey started being a little b.utt. He had minor bucking fits at the canter, and kept refusing the jumps (the rain had him mucho f.reaked out). He also bolted down one line, but I was able to stop him and my trainer told me after that I rode very well, even when "things got western."

OH! And guess what!! Sarah got me a spot on a saddle rack so now my baby is staying at the barn 24/7!!! EEP!

ALSO! (and this is the biggest) Sarah told me to call her whenever I wanted to help out (tacking up horses, doing odd chores, etc...) THIS IS SO EXCITING!! Doing that is like being a part of the barn! And maybe I can work off extra lessons/rides! EEK!

I'm going to have to do some finangling to get the pictures posted on here...so be patient and they'll be up ASAP.

My favorite pony...yes, he always looks this mad. That's just how Junior is. My saddle in it's new home


Joey making...Joey faces :P after the lesson

Here's Junior

And then Joey:

Awesome! Junior looks like a sweet old man. Joey is just adorable. You look awesome on him =)

HAHA sweet?!?! Junior is the devil! I still have scars from being bitten so many times! I can't even count how many times that pony has bitten/kicked/taken me out of the arena!! But you're right, underneath it all he's a sweetheart.

Joey is always just happy! I luff him, even though I'm huuuuge on him. Thanks!

OH MY GOSH!! Do you happen to ride at Oakland Hills Farm?? I used to ride Junior there years ago! He was my favorite pony in the world and I leased him for 2 or 3 years. He was the best besides his biting issues. I just saw the first picture and went hey that looks like Junior the pony I used to ride and then I recognized the grooming stalls and went OH MY GOODNESS!

This is the only picture I have of Junior from when I rode him...


ETA: I still have a scar from him biting me in the chest, too!

That's so cool! He's definitely the best pony ever! He was the pony that taught how to be defensive rider after falling off of him countless times. You'll have to get more pics of him sometime, even though it makes me miss him 10 times more every time I see a picture of him.

Also, are there any horses or ponies named Obie, Lily, King, Lefty, Casper, or Ruby there anymore??

I mean, did I say sweet? What I really meant was evil, the seed of satan, the spawn of the devil... haha

haha, definitely. He took me right out of the arena three times the first time I rode him, haha I was terrified.

I LOVED OBIE! But no, he's not there anymore :( I want to say they sent him to a therapeutic riding center, because of something with his hips. King died a few years ago. I think Lefty was sold. Casper (owned by tammy at this point) was sold to Bit By Bit farm last year, I remember when they did it. And I don't remember ruby, she must have been there before 2003. Streaker died a few years ago, too.
I have pics of some of them! Let me upload them (:

I could post pics of JR all day!




Obie:



I can probably find pictures of any other horses you're wondering about (:

hahaha that's pretty much right! Anyone who's ever met/ridden/leased Junior can tell you what a snot he was!

Ha he's definitely one snot of a pony! It was so good to see pics of Obie! He was also one of my favorites along with King. It's so sad that King died he was such a good old man. Oh and I remember Streaker too! He was sooo old! I think he was in his upper 30's when I rode there. If you have any more pictures of Junior I'd love to see them.

Oh I just scrounged up a pic of King from when I rode him...


This is making me so sad remembering the ponies and horses I rode when I was younger.
