    Highschool was actually nice for me. The people in my class were fine and I was happily by myself. The elementary school was what crippled my mind in many ways - I sometimes still face the consequences of the amount of bullying I experienced.

    Had a lesson with my trainer today. It was hard, but super fun and very beneficial regarding keeping steady contact and maintaining rythm & balance. Also, Snickers cantered over ground poles for the first time! He had been cantering over one ground pole in the past, but now we had 3 and 4, and he did really well after he understood we don't have to trot over them lol.

    All school was pretty miserable for me, but I like to think I'm over it... don't particularly want to see many of those people though. I'm sure a lot of the kids who were bullies back then were going through their own issues, and I don't want to hold it against them, it would just bring back too many unpleasant memories.

    School sucked but facebook has made it better lol. It's an awesome feeling looking at my old classmates and seeing how much their life sucks now. The kids who thought they were all that are now divorced, overweight, or have miserable jobs.

    And with even better news the bf bought a new truck friday! I was way more excited than him about it. He got an absolutely adorable 04 F150. And yes I just called a truck adorable. And it is making me miss my truck so bad. I mean I love my little SUV but I miss the big truck. But I don't miss the $97 he spent filling the thing up with gas lol.

    Yikes,it's been forever since I was on here! I have a valid excuse though;the hard drive went on my laptop just before I left for a week of holidays,and it's still in being repaired,ugh. I didn't realize how much I use that thing until I didn't have it...
    Anyways,on the school topic.I was home schooled from K all the way through grade 12,and loved it! It fit my style of learning way better,and I loved the freedom and flexibility of it. My classmates were my siblings,and I think that played a large part in why we are all so close. And I loved my teacher,of course. :)

    I would have loved to be home schooled, but this choice of education has become increasingly popular just now in Latvia - when I was a kid, it was public education only. And my parents chose a big name top-notch elite school with huge classes (the amount of pupils studying together), instead of choosing a smaller, local school with less people and nicer atmosphere. Well, I guess my shool-time education is quite good, but I would have appreciated spending my school years among friendlier people. We even moved to another city so that my brother and I could attend that school, but I somehow feel it was not worth it. On the other hand, I have no way to guess about how my life would had turned out if we had made other choices.

    Does your boyfriend know that you called his truck adorable? If it's adorable, it's not a real truck

    I'm actually going to be looking to trade in my beastly truck in a few months. It's getting to the point where I need to upgrade to something with 4 wheel drive and a little more load capacity. If anyone in the Central Wisconsin area is looking for a good beater truck, I'm willing to deal. I'm sure I can get more in a private sale than actually trading it in.

    A quick training question - as we just started cantering over groundpoles with Snickers, he naturally has some coordination issues while he learns how he has to balance himself and how to move his legs. Thus he sometimes hits a pole with hooves. Is there a way how I can protect his hooves in the process, or is it just natural and he will learn to coordinate himself? The groundpoles are placed in correct distances and we have a trainer, but I forgot to ask her that and I would like to do some polework until our next lesson. :)

    I don't like to use any boots right at first when im doing pole work/starting jumping. If they are able to feel when they hit the pole, they will be able to learn from it. He will find his balance, pole work can help soooo much with canter balance !

    Hehe yes he knows I called it adorable. I love it, 4 door and 4x4, I'm planning on stealing it this winter. My little Kia is great in snow, it is 4x4 afterall, but a truck is just so much more fun lol. Plus I love trying to run people over in their little tin can cars. I have a hate for the whole hippie movement of vehicles lol, I just can't justify saving gas in exchange for safety, just doesn't make sense.

    And yes, Saranda, I've always been told what Gypsy said, they will learn to pick up their feet better if left to hit the poles. They will get sick of that feeling pretty quickly.
