I'm finally getting around to coming up with a name for this girl. I've been mulling over dozens of names,but just couldn't come up with one that really seemed to fit her,until this morning.I happened to be looking at this pic of her and the name,Im A Flamous Miss, popped into my head. It uses a word that's in both her sire and dam's names,has the flame aspect that I wanted due to her color and blaze,and is kinda classy,just like her. What do you think?

I know what you mean.I'm used to my two spirited Saddlebred crosses that don't seem to know what the word 'slow' even means;then I get Chica,who is very laid back and seems to do everything slow. It's a big adjustment,lol. I don't mind a slower pace once in a while,but she is just downright lazy,and that is irritating!

Éowyn is pretty spirited (well, I suppose for an arab she might be laid back but she's a lot more spirited than my QH was! ) and I love that she really moves out even at a walk with her short little legs. I don't think I'd like doing Western Pleasure very much, that low head and ambling walk... but there are lots of fast things we can do with a Western saddle!

I like "I'm a Flamous Miss" - that's cute! What would be her barn name?

"Im A Flamous Miss" suits very well for the filly - and she is so cute! I am usually not a fan of blazes, but hers really does look like a little flame, and I love it!

Ah, I miss being around foals... They are so precious, spunky and full of life, and so interesting to teach them and let them trust me. Sadly, my current BO is not into breeding at all and the last filly we had was sold this spring. I'd love to interact with a young colt, because I've always had the chance to be with fillies only. Do colts differ somehow in their behavior and attitude before the puberty hits in? :)

And oh, joy - turns out that one of the boarders is also interested in endurance, just as I am! So yesterday we had our first training trail ride, lots of trotting and a little hill work, too. Had tons of fun. :) We will try to prepare for an endurance competition that might be held in late september, if only we'll have the money for trailering our horses. Endurance isn't too popular here yet and the only competitions are held far from our barn.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Rosie arrived today! I was so worried about her, she was picked up yesterday morning by one company and travelled 200km with her, and then was put on another truck for the next 400km to go the depot where she was stabled overnight and then picked up on another truck this morning and driven up the mountains. It had snowed last night and the roads were so twisty and icy I was worried the truck would tip!

But when she came off she seemed fine, and ate her food and went off to explore. I'm glad to have her back, even though she isn't exactly close.

well if you two pool your money and save it as well you should be alright! the only rides here that are worth going to are a ways away too, but make a trip out of it and enjoy your time so its worth goin in the first place :)

You have to learn how to fall before you can learn how to ride~

We will pool our money, so I really hope that no unexpected expenses come up and we will be able to go. :)

Ahhh I just love baby animals and most of all foals. And yours is just so adorable. I love the name you picked for her very cute.

I rode the nice paint last night and his owner has slowed him down for western and he has a beautiful jog and lope but if I want to jump him we gotta get that pace moving. I think it's really good for a horse to be able to carry himself well at any speed you want. But I really had to work to post. He's so smooth unlike Lizzy who practically does the work for me to post haha.

So glad Rosie made it. That would be so stressful worrying about her especially after the road conditions.

I would love to do endurance with Lizzy. I was worried the vet would say no because of her lameness. But I'm so happy it was all due to needing shoes. She gets them on tonight :). But she's never had shoes ever. Hope she does ok.

Her barn name would probably be Missy.

I can't wait for her to be weaned so I can bring her home and start working with her.She's going to be a fun little challenge as she was pasture born and has had basically no human handling. (she was given to me after Sequoya lost her foal). But I passionately love working with foals. I've really missed halter breaking the babies at the breeding operation where I used to work,and haven't had any foals here at the farm in a few years,so I'm looking forward to working with one again.
