    Labs! Isnt that funny.
    I have a feeling champ my dane mastiff cross might be agressive towards strangers. I startled hom one day, he didnt know I was home and came running at me with hackles up growling and huffing, until he heard my voice and he was fine.
    Scared me quiet a bit

    Its pretty easy when you get the hang of it.

    And its easier than buying a new saddle

    Haha yes definitely easier than getting a new saddle. I've only had it for a few months and apparently Lizzy's muscle build up ment a narrower gullet. She's still in the Medium-wide gullet though. Highly doubt it will get any narrower. But luckily I can change it.

    Thanks, I hope I can get a real job soon! Wish the aquarium would call me back and just hire me already. >:U I did consider doing a lesson once every two weeks, I'll have to give it more consideration. Hmmm. It would feel like so long between riding, but it's better than nothing. Hm hm hm.

    Had fantastic time with Snickers yesterday. He was very energetic, did his gaits automatically extended, his transitions from trot to stop and from canter to trot were near perfect, and I was able to work on my hands, contact and the use of indirect rein. I'm far from perfect, of course, but we're improving gradually. My main issue is setting precise figures, directions, movements, and sticking to them, so I did it all only as long as I could keep my concentration and we both did well. As my concentration started slipping away, I just went into the nearest trail path and we had a lovely canter through the forest twilight. Snickers had two small spooks, but they didn't affect my seat, and then we walked home, me singing folk songs about horses and night. Good times. :)

    Sounds like soo much fun!!! Precise figures...try making imprecise figures. Steering is a hard one to master, and to make look easy!!! But you'll get it soon :)

    I applied for a job at the library a few weeks back, before I got this one. I'm still hoping they call me because I love libraries and I'd be brilliant at that. I hope you get the Aquarium job.

    My work texted me today to ask me to work tomorrow. So I must have been okay at my first shift? I don't feel like working but I'm not going to pass up $150 because I'm feeling lazy.

    That's great you had a good ride with Snickers!

    Thanks, Army wife - yeah, I'm sure we'll get there soon enough. :) After all, I was a very green rider when I got Snickers, and, as he was greenbroke himself and still maturing, I gave him LOTS of slack and time off. Now it's time to start working and learning harder - for both of us.

    Everybody's getting a day off today... I don't know what I did yesterday, but I have a giant blister up the side of my thumb and touching anything HURTS, and I can't put a band-aid on it because it's so close to my knuckle (as soon as I bend my finger it starts peeling off)

    Oh well, a couple days and I'll be right as rain. Besides - it's already hot and humid and it's only 8:30 in the morning!!! I HATE hot humid days. Make me feel like I'm melting. I can't wait for fall!
