Ahh that sounds like fun though. English is fun, especially jumping. Be prepared to shell out the money for shows lol and the clothing.

Yeah, part of the reason she became a Lia Sophia advisor was to have some extra money for the clothes and shows.

I've never been a fan of English style though, so I'll probably just hand Mellzy off to Lane and get me a big Appy gelding and learn to rope or get a fast barrel horse and get back into that.

Haha that's no fun. But my bf told me if I start showing again he will laugh at me and my "funny" clothing lol. He just doesn't understand haha. I also still want to get into team penning though. And Lizzy is training for endurance so we will be busy. Have to say my heart belongs on the cross country course though. As soon as I sit back in an english saddle I feel so at home lol.

My bf wants an Appy as well and he is determined to eventually have one lol. I told him only if it's a leopard appy as I just adore them.

I do English show jumping and my boyfriend is always making fun of my "dorky clothes", hahaha. I'm 22 and already look like I'm 14, and for some reason show clothes just make me look even younger. And show clothes are sooo expensive. I just do the smaller shows, and it's expensive enough. I can't imagine how much it would be for the A shows.
(ignore my horse's headset, this was a month after I got him, haha).

I hope everyone is doing well I see some got snow :) I have the farrier coming out tomorrow so im happy its a little nice out tonight and they could stay out side.

Jasmine had another panic attach like episode in the new stall I put her in. Its bigger than her small 11 by 10 stall which she really out grew so I put her in the 12 by 13 stall and she looks to the back corners and shakes like crazy, she spooks, jumps, keeps her eye on the back corners of the stall and wont even eat her hay. Its the oddest thing. I feel terrible I had to take her out and put her back in her old stall. She was so happy to get out of that stall, I don't know what she is so afraid of. Since she only has one eye I keep her in at night so not stalling her wont work. I tried putting food in the corners before and she goes to nibble but instantly spooks and runs her body in to the side of the stall. I can stand in the stall with her and feed her in the corner and as long as she knows im there she is fine but the second I leave she shakes again. I'm going to keep her in the small stall for now its not terrible she is 14.3 hands and narrow but I would rather her in a bigger stall. I think she will always have some type of PTS from her accident even though it happened when she was so young. I truly do think horses don't forget. I just wish I could do more to help her :(

This thread is intimidating. It's not even a year old with over 270 pages. I guess I'll start at the beginning.

Ok just one more thing... what in the blue heavens are carrots and what are they used for? This forum is asking me weird things in regards to carrots and I'm not exactly sure how to answer. Things sure are funny around here.

I got pictures of Snickers and me from a recent photo shooting, and they are so nice - will post some this evening in my pictures thread! :)

Snickers has been having a long vacation for a while now. Our arena is coated with thick ice and most of the trails are frozen, too, so we either ride at a walk and practice responsiveness, either (which is more often, due to my inspiration) we do groundwork and hillwork in hand. He is flaming with energy and on some occassions behaving almost like a stud, but I like it - much more easier to work with a responsive and active horse, than with a lazy individual. :) But, as with Snickers - with energy comes dominance, so we get to repeat lots of lessons on personal space... Fun times.

Also, our trimmer visited us last Sunday, and I got to see how a large part of the sole of both front hooves just peeled off, right where the abscesses had erupted, just to reveal brand new sole, and - hooray! At last! - frogs and heels that are not that contracted anymore!

On a very side note, I'm going to a steak house tonight - yay, haven't been to one in years!

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