Hi Ashleigh! I like your horse's name. My horse is Onyx, but I call him nyx for short
Sometimes it seems those young ones are the hardest, they try our patience. I remember feeling the same way when I bought my 6 month old filly. They are long yearlings and your like "can you just grow up already?!"

(i think I screwed up my quote thingy ;/)

Haha that's awesome onyx like the pokemon!?
Oh Yeh nyx really test my patients lol she is a very smart cunning little thing. But I get around that by always keeping her mind busy on different things :) she is two next month which is when I was going to start breaking her BUT she is still light framed and got a bit of growing to go so waiting another year! ;/ so Yeh, just grow up already!!!! Haha :)

Hi guys! Joining this thread... for a little bit longer at least. :)

I'm Katie, I'm 28, and I live in Oklahoma. I've been married for almost 4 years (yikes!), and we have two dogs and a horse. I started riding when I was ten and continued until I was 18, but I had to quit when I went to college. Life got in the way after that, but a little over two years ago I got back into horses and haven't looked back!

I look forward to chatting with all of you. :)

For future reference, it's [ QUOTE ] for the beginning without any spaces and then [ /QUOTE ] for the end with no spaces. The / signals to end the code given the label that follows it. Basic html :)

Well Lakota, i'm happy for you and cograts on being pregnant, wishing you the best of luck!!! Usually around here when you get married young there is a big reason, and its not a favorite custom around here.
The way our story went is that Hubby and I were best friends in high school, and then we graduated, and lost touch for a year. Then I split with my ex because he was jealous of my horses (no surprise there) And after about 2 weeks of talking and hanging out and helping him rebuild his grandparents house after it burnt, we got together. So after about 1 1/2 years we decided we wanted to get married, and we were planning all of this and about 2 months before our wedding, I found out I was pregnant (i was not at all happy about it at the time, plus I was mega bitch and demanded ice cream LOL) *i was 16-18 wks when I found out* Once I started getting used to the idea, I knew we weren't ready, and was heart broken because I wanted to wait. Well we got married in NOV, and 6 days after our wedding I lost the baby at 24wks. (bring on the sadness, sorry) It was horrible, I didn't think we would make it thru, but we have and we're still going well and strong. I was sooo depressed after all this happened, and I still had my two older geldings to take care of. Because they were older I didn't do too much with them, and I hinted I wanted another horse. And just like that I found my paint mare on the net, and she was close to home, and at a reasonable price for being unbroken. He got her for me for Valentine's day, tho she didn't come home till april because of the weather. She helped pull me through my depression, along with my geldings. She is my angel, along with my loving husband. Its been hard, and I would like to start barrel racing again (the main reason I wanted her), but she's also become my other best friend.
I never thought I could be so happy, and have a husband who likes horses, and supports me any way he can (plus he claims 2 of my horses LOL). Its not a pretty story, and not a very happy one...but there it is.. :) *Its ok, I know its going to be a shocker,and your going to tell me its horrible, but I have my horses and friends and family and the forum for support ;) YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!

Thanks, seriously Sky I never thought i'd have such a wonderful person. And honestly I thought after high school, I wanted to go and start my career with horses, and move to canada LOL, I wanted to move so far away that no one could find me. But here I am now in middle of nowhere PA, with the love of my life. Gotta love how everything changes so fast, and sometimes for the better. Obviously the universe (my grandma's theory) had other plans for me/us!! :)

Thanks, Failbhe. :) I could teach you Latvian, but I guess it would take a LONG time. Not the easiest language, either.

It seems I'm going through a little crisis with Snickers. He's been having a "vacation" because of the hot weather and the amount of bugs, but yesterday was a nice day to do something, so I did. Well, he acted as if he had forgotten to ground drive (hadn't, just acted up), and bolted past another rider in a little trail ride I had with my barn buddies. Oh well. I could cope with the situations and I guess such days just happen. He is still my perfect horse, just needs some reminder lessons about good manners. :)

Hmm, I like horses that keep you on the ball! :)
What does everyone prefer;
Lazy horses or hot horses?
OR those smart horses that are lazy but like to test you out every now and then. :)

The third choice, nyx. The smart, lazy and testing ones. That's exactly like Snickers. :) And he's got enough of spunk and speed in him, if needed, but nothing I couldn't handle. He's actually very willing, just has to get the right motivation.
