Getting my 4-H Quarter Pony back has me wound tight :/

So, I found out last week that I had the great opportunity to get my Quarter Pony back. He is now 22, and I'm hoping I'm able to enjoy him for a few more years :)

Here's the problem! I haven't slept for poo since I found out! Last night I actually woke up several times dreaming about showing. Haha. I was rushing around to make the last call for a class. If you knew me, this isn't far fetched. lol.

Hoping I can finally relax after I get him home on Sunday. I just can't wait!

How exciting for you, I'm sure there are so many people out there who would love the opportunity to get an old horse back and great that he will get to live out his twilight years in a loving home Good luck on getting some sleep, I would be the same!

We got Stubby back today :) He looks better than I was thinking he was going to! He does not look his age. I will post some pics of the old man when I get a chance. I rode him and my boys and niece were on him for a few minutes each. He still remembers, just may take me a bit to get him back to pleasure form. lol. So excited :)

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Maybe you can sweet talk Mandy into getting one :) lol. I won't get over there until tomorrow, but I will try to get him to cooperate. He was sure full of it when we turned him out. I was scrubbing out his little water tank and he decided to run around like an idiot and splatter me with mud. haha. Then he thought for sure that he was walking out of the gate with me. Nope, sorry bud. I did a mini showmanship pattern for fun. The old man can still pivot pretty :) His muscle mass is still there, just flabby. haha. Get him on a regular riding schedule and he should be built back up in no time!
