well good for you dear! I hope you have a blast. Funny enough, I'm going to school to be a school teacher haha :) so trust me, if it's something you aspire to do the whole mental part of it is a challenge worth taking on! I personally LOVE teaching.

It's spring break at my university starting tomorrow, WOOO!!!!! And my dear Hunny and I are going to spend some quality time together :) Yay for working on bombproofing! I get to go find tarps, grab my exercise ball, and find all sorts of other scary things to work with her on haha any other ideas for scary things to work with her on? She generally doesn't spook unless she's being hyper and dumb but when she does it isn't like she freaks out, she just looks at it weird, we go up and she sniffs it, then she acts like it's never there and it was my fault for spooking her about it...blondes....

welcome to HF! We're all pretty cool here (not to brag or anything...) any other photos of your girl so we can get to know her and you a tad better? What about English riding do you enjoy? Any certain discipline within English?

I am def going to be adding more pics :) I really love the elegance of english, it just has a way of making you feel like you're a queen or something! Right now I do english pleasure, equitation, etc. but I am just starting to learn jumping. I really want to learn Dressage but in my area its hard to find a good dressage trainer without driving a few hours. Sophie is still in the learning process but I am hoping she will be ready to show by summer.

well if you want to try some dressage you can always check out the dressage forum for advice, I know they will gladly offer it.

Welcome! :) I too am just getting into the world of dressage-- for the most part without a trainer, but I will be incorporating that soon, hopefully. Can't wait to see pictures of Sophie!

Welcome to HF!

I got to go out and visit my boy yesterday! He took about a minute and then remembered pretty much everything that I had taught him. He can be such the gentleman sometimes! Don't ask about the other times! LOL!
I didn't ride but did throw my youngest two sisters on him and led them around. My sister Sara loves horses (she's almost as crazy as me!), so she was really happy! Ruth likes to have a ride every now and then.
I had to go to a bridal shower that afternoon, but my brother brought Coyote in and gave him a trim while I was gone. I love my brother! :-D BTW folks, he's almost 19, has worked for a logging company for 3 years, is a handy man, and likes riding, and training horses.
I had a good time at home! My relationship with my dad can be very stressful at times. But nothing came up this trip and it was enjoyable and refreshing to be out at the farm. And I love my siblings!

A few pictures

Coyote coming to see me... He was really coming for the carrots, but he hung around.


Coyote and Ruth


Sara on Red with Jesse. Red is Jesse's 7 year old QH gelding


Jesse and Golda. She is a bit touchy about her ears, so Jesse was scratching her head and and working on the ears a bit. This is Golda's 'this feels good, but he is touching my ears' look

Golda belongs to my brother Ezekiel. She is a 4 year old QH with 1/8 Saddlebred thrown in. She has had 2 rides.

I'm hoping that when I go up next weekend that I'll be able to ride Coyote a bit. I might also get to see my new horse!

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

alright guys, I have a very serious question to ask you. We are going through a blizzard and have had freezing rain and very wet freezing snow with more snow on top of it. My mare is at my friends house, normally a 30-40 minute drive away. She has multiple other horses, as well as a few that will be foaling in a few weeks. She and her employee left a few days ago with a trailer full of horses to take to her other ranch in Kentucky, and her employee won't be back until Wednesday hopefully (weather permitting). She won't be back for 6-8 weeks. Should I drive up there tomorrow to check on everything since we had the blizzard? I am worried because the only other people that live on the property a couple of geezers who cannot get around the best (and refuse to leave the property). I'm concerned about the horses because of the waterers freezing up. There is plenty of shelter and they had a TON of hay in their pens, just in case, but I still worry. Opinions?

Honestly, I would rather be safe than sorry. Especially if you can't contact anyone nearby who you trust to check on the horses!

Then again, I am pretty darn neurotic. ;) I just know it would stink to have the waters freeze up and then have to deal with colic/dehydration/etc in the middle of inclement weather.
