Lol private sale might have gotten that though. I do love how Arabs have a higher step, or well at least Lizzy does, she prances a lot hehe.

Did I say how that twat tried to bite me the other day?! I was pissed and surprised. I think the person who has their horse in the same paddock has been giving her treats when I'm not there as they are not experienced and I wouldn't put it past them to let her get away with stuff as she is very bossy.

Yay, had such a nice training session with Snickey, he even offered shortening the stride of his canter in a turn and was so eager to please! And all that after I thought we'd be better off in the trails today as he looked a bit lazy to me.

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

that's good it went well Saranda.

I'm always surprised about how cheap horse prices are in the US. Here you can't get anything cheap ever.

The owner isn't worried about liability, her place is only five acres and she only agists two people on there along with her own horses. As its her home she is very particular about who comes on the property. It would be tricky because if she agreed to such a situation then I would likely be responsible for the behaviour of the lessee and whoever they bring out. As agistment is in high demand here, if she asked me to leave I'd have to bring Rosie back to the place 40km away - and that would be even harder as its in the middle of nowhere.

So I don't know what to do in this situation, I really like having Rosie here and doing stuff with her everyday but its just all so expensive.

I think I'll stick it out a little longer, dig a little into my savings, and see if I start to get regular hours at my work which would give me enough breathing room financially, they said I'd get three days a week - but so far nothing really.

Haha Saskia, not sure I look like a Meiko either - definitely not Japanese, people get quite a surprise when I come for a job interview.

Argh, the prices over here are crazy aren't they? But that's only really NSW and to a lesser extent Victoria - the SA and QLD horses are much closer to US prices. Horses will get cheaper once El Nino comes around though (and hay will go through the roof, ugh).

Saranda, what breed is Snickers? I love him!

Yes, I am not sure if you are a "Meiko" at all.

I don't want hay to go up

And I don't mean to answer for Saranda, but I believe he is a Latvian Warmblood, although I could be completely wrong. He's a lovely horse isn't he?

How come we don't have an Australian Warmblood?

So I just joined my local horse rescue to volunteer in any way possible. Ill be going to have a meeting on Monday to see what I can offer. Soooo excited. Me and the lady really seemed to click over the phone, I just can't wait to offer as much as I can, as here in the central west we have the highest number of neglected/abused horses in NSW..

And I get a pic of my new bird on the weekend. (not that it may interest anyone! Lol)

Heh, no, I'm more an Elektra (my middle name)

Regarding an Australian warmblood, cross an ASH with a Carlton Draught Clydie perhaps?

Thanks, Saskia, and yes, he is a Latvian Warmblood - light draft type. They come also in riding type, higher and with a lighter build. An alternative name for them is Latvian Harness horse, riding or light draft. They are the most popular breed around here as they make steady, endurant and reliable mounts. :)

Nyx, I want to see your bird!

Do I have a slight chairseat in this picture, or am I seeing things today? Not our best demonstration anyway, it was a horrible lesson when this picture was taken.
