    Although it wasn't planned,I think this is still a pretty good cross.From what I've been told,they make great family dogs.

    Aww, wonderful puppies! Congratulations! :)

    I'm on a very thin edge right now. Might have to change barns for Snickers and afraid to make the wrong choice. :/

    Thanks, cowgirl, but it has been already decided. The thing is that the BO decided to increase our boarding fee quite noticeably in order to make some long-needed improvements for our facilities. Without these improvements, some potential safety hazards have already started to show up and there are also a problem with overgrazed pastures. The BO is doing her best, but has a history of promising and not fulfilling the promised things, so, summing everything up with an unpleasant financial situation I'm currently in and some personal issues, I've decided to move, along with a couple of other boarders. It hurts terribly to leave this otherwise beautiful place and Snickers will have to be stalled overnight for a month or so (I hate this part!), but the new barn, to which we move when April comes, is otherwise rather nice, only without any decent trails. However, we'll have a large outdoor and an indoor arena, and my Dressage trainer is also giving lessons there. I'm already looking for 24/7 pasturing alternatives and hoping to find something decent before the autumn comes.

    Im a 20-something (26) and just learning to ride with a friend, so I figured I would post up here. Only been on a few trail rides and the horse I ride is calm, if not lazy! He is the palomino in my avatar. I only get terrified when he decides not to be lazy and race my friends horse (also in avatar). So anyway, that's my story, just hoping to ride and learn more and maybe pick up some tips online.

    Welcome,Twism! :)


    Haven't been doing too much lately with the horses as it's horribly icy here right now,and I have no indoor facilities to ride/work in.I have Carmela up for sale now,have had a few people interested but nobody's followed through yet.Hopefully soon,though! Juno now ties,although she's not the most patient yet when it comes to standing for any length of time,lol,and have also started teaching her to lunge;just small circles at the walk for now,working on voices commands and paying attention. She's come a long way from the aggressive psycho that she was a month ago..

    Well luckily spring is in the air here! And welcome tom!

    Anywho, it is getting to the "too muddy to do anything" stage so we are going to be stuck in the indoor arena for a little bit. Oh well, I'd rather have some mud than be freezing my tata's off...

    Yes, for many areas spring is also mud season.... The horse I ride stumbles on dry land so I will hold off taking him through the mud for now. I could always ride my friends appendix who will trample through anything.

    I am going to my parent's place the next two weekends!!! I get to see my boy! This weekend will just be traveling up on Friday night and leaving Saturday evening (friend's bridal shower Sat afternoon), and next weekend I have to go up there again for a orthodontist appointment, I am going up Friday evening and leaving sometime on Sunday. The crazy exciting news is that the lady that is picking up my horse might be delivering her on the weekend that I am there! It might also be the next weekend, but I'm hoping for the 9th!
    I am so looking forward to hanging out with my siblings, visiting my friends, loving on my horse(s) and cow, and going to church again. I'm just a bit excited!
    Other than that, after a week off from teaching guitar (school break), I am through my second day back into teaching and it's going great! I have 6 students, two more to go this week and then I'm 'home free'. Friday is always a relief to me even if I have to work all day at the store. I like teaching, but it's quite taxing of mind. I couldn't imagine being a school teacher.
    The weather is incredibly warm here not getting any colder than -15*C, it's crazy! I'm expecting another cold snap, but you never know, this winter has been weird, warm (plus 5*C) one day and -25*C the next day with blowing snow. Lots of freezing rain. Scary for driving in to work. We have a 15 min drive to get into town.
    Really looking forward to spring! That'll come in May... or June...
