Ohh what kinda cake??
So pretty sure we found the perfect mare! :) a little 13hh+ mare she's absolutley adorable. We think she maybe a Welsh cross appy she's all white with a few spots.
Great around the kids almost completely de sesnsitised, needs a little work in the saddle but mostly only needs to gain trust. So she's getting a vet check as she has a bit of a turned out hoof but her hooves do need a bit of corrective trimming.
So if my aunt agrees to buy her I get to take her under my wing for a few weeks and give her a bit if work and my aunt a few lessons so to speak. :)
That would be fun doing the touch exhibits :) maybe ring them and just ask whats going on, just to ease your mind so you can relax a little, and that would also show your keen. :)
Whats the worse that can happen? Haha Posted via Mobile Device Posted via Mobile Device
I'm going to, I'm just nervous doing so because it's a big company. >_< It's not like talking to a local place, I'll probably have to be redirected to the human resources department or something, and I don't want to seem bothersome. D:
I'm sorry to hear about the drama you're experiencing at your barn, Poppy. That reminds me of something I was telling my boyfriend the other day. My boyfriend and I are both relatively new volunteers at a barn near us, probably been there for a couple of weeks, and the adults are always really confident in us. The barn owner talks to us like we're normal human beings. XD I was asking my boyfriend if he noticed the difference in atmosphere when we're around the adults versus when we're around the teens, and he said he does. The teenagers and kids make me feel like I look stupid or something. XD They don't try and reach out and include us in the tasks they're doing, they just kind of have their own little group, much like in high school. And sometimes there will be a lot of them, so we don't want them to feel like we're trying to steal their thunder by asking if we can help, but we also don't want to appear lazy. There are some really nice teenaged girls there, but other times I just feel like a fish out of water. And my boyfriend is the only guy there aside from the BO's husband and teenaged son, so I can only imagine how he must feel among this pack of girls. Oh well. I enjoy being there, I just feel like I'm under scrutiny by people ten years younger than me. I try to be friendly and everything, I just get this "ugh" feeling like I'm back in high school when I'm standing there and I can feel eyes on me, like I'm being judged. I guess it's because we're the "newcomers". That being said, it's a very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. I just don't feel relaxed in the swarm of high-schoolers. ^^;;
