So does anyone love horse like think about them all the time? Even the nonhorsey owners like me! And get all Giddy and Excited the night before a riding day!:) Well that's how I am right now. Lesson is tomorrow morning!! Yay I am happy. I hvent had a lesson for like 3 weeks :( but yay! I love horses. I just love grooming, saddling, bridling, riding, unbridling, halterining,unsaddling(is that even a word?)lol. I just basically love horses! :) Anyone else?
This is great. First, hubby wants to get 2 horses this year. Second, we no NOTHING about horses. I've been reading this forum and as much as I can about horses; grooming, vet care, health, exercise requirements, etc...
So today I was telling hubby that I've been spending time 'visualizing' and trying to 'get a feel' of what it might be like if we have horses. It really is just scaring me more and more. Floating teeth? WHAT is THAT? Feed ... besides hay and oats ... what and how much.....it goes on and on. I listed a number of things for hubby that we don't know. Like worming. He said "oh, I'm sure that's just a pill". WELL it seems as though you need to track WHICH worm meds they HAVE taken and WHICH worm meds are coming up as there are DIFFERENT worms ..... ????!!!!! AAAGGGGGHHHHH : ? )
Can't I just cuddle and kiss them? Really .... anyone out there need a professional horse cuddler? : ? )
Lol guys! Lesson was Perfect. My trainer let me do things indipenant(sp?) And she said I would be cantering in no time I know I've never cantered plus jessie(my lesson horse that I LOVE) was perfect today! :)
Ever since I have started working I have NO desire to EVER build a big barn with lots of horses and stalls... I just want to move my horse home and never step in another stall again.
But I love riding and all that stuff just cleaning 26 stalls and feeding and watering isnt what it has cracked up to be.
Well I feel outnumbered but we all can feel the same about horses .got my first horse last spring after 35 yrs without 1 I felt like I have no clue on whats going on with them .come to find out horses havent changed any . I feel the same way about horses then as I do now mygrandaughter tool my first horse, so I got another horse . Now I get in trouble for having another girl in my life . Havent been able to ride since my back surgary in october. Doc said im good to go.my babys are 3 and 10 years old.
