Hey sky, we have something in common. My first training project was a haffy. Although, she thought she was an arabian, just way smarter

They are definitely easy to work with, and very smart. Hard to find around where I live though.

Mine was untouched for 4 years as her owner couldn't catch her. She was given to the place I used to work. She was fat fat fat and green as ever. Her past time was riding her people along fences/rails.

She taught me how to fall with grace She was the first horse I took to a show.

She was a lot of fun.

Haha I've worked pretty much every job there is that requires no post-secondary education! I've worked retail at a clothing store and then cashier at a grocery store - not quite the same, but I actually didn't mind the cashier job - it was just down the road, couldn't quite walk but hardly any drive. The clothing store was a nightmare - I'm usually a bit more quiet by nature, and my boss kept telling me I should be more 'involved' with the customers (asking what they were looking for, if I could help them, showing them things, etc). Personally, as a shopper, I HATE it when salespeople won't leave you alone so it was torture for me to try and do that to other people. I would imagine that a tack shop (I'm assuming that's what 'horseland' is?) would be a little different. I hope it goes well! Keep us posted!

Wow,I haven't been on in a few days,and from the number of posts I apparently missed alot,lol. I'm not going to even try to get up,so hopefully nothing too exciting happened. Life has been absolutely insane the last week,hence my neglect in visiting with you all..

Some of both.
Lots of things going on in my extended family;my great grandma just passed away after a bad stroke.She hung on much longer than the doctors expected,so just all the waiting was really hard;she was very special to me,but I won't make it to the funeral because it's in the States and I don't have the proper paperwork to get across the border,so that's hard. Then there's some things happening with my uncle,can't go into details,but let's just say I feel so bad for him and his kids as his wife has gone off the deep end,so to speak.
Then there's just the fact that I've been so ridiculously busy,having to fit too many things into too short a time period. Have a house to paint,about 150 entries to prepare for our two big country bench fairs coming up,a camping trip to get ready for, a farm to run,gardens to take care of,buildings to clean, and the list goes on.. It's been 16-18 hour work days lately. Stupid heart condition is bothering me because of to much physical activity,which doesn't help matters.Needless to say,the girls aren't getting much attention,although I managed to get everyone trimmed this week. But,get through the next five days and I'm camping for a week. Ah,relaxation! :)
