I just turned 52. I started riding a year ago. I purchased my first horse 9 month ago. Santana and I had a couple of rough month, I was inexperienced an he was very pushy and disrespectful. I never gave up on him. With the help of a great trainer who trained us both we became a great team. My trainer comes to the house twice a week.She made all the difference.
Congratulations with your new horse

Can we see some pictures of your horse

Hi Pat and welcome! Congrats with you and your horse, a trainer makes all the difference. I know I would have traded away Hunter if it wasn't for my trainer.

More puppies!?! I think those antics would drive me over the bend. I am so thankful that our last puppy never chewed a hose-but she sure does destroy a lot of toys & she's making big inroads on the steps to my back door & we don't have to trim any branches from the tree that is in her yard. She almost always has something in her mouth. But, she is our big baby-around 90 pounds or so!

My poor dog ate the whole electric cord off a fan when she was a pup. Poor thing, it hurt to poop for a very long time. We are still amazed she never got zapped.

Always bringing home waifs and strays, taking on horses that people said were dangerous or bad just to prove them wrong.

The two new ones are Duncan and Dungeon. Not my favourite type, mostly white with blue roan splodges.
The two bitches, Raindrop and Rascal, are different, Raindrop is tri coloured Rascal mostly black. She is the really naughty one.
I love Raindrop, she uses her nose a lot, tiddles when you pet her and is as sloppy as they come.

I had a sort out with Duncan as he is very food aggressive. He will not let the others eat and when I stopped him from pigging all the food he went for me - a deadly sin in my book but he has not done it again. He is going to be a very big dog hound when he has done growing.

He was also over interested in the sheep, I slapped him a couple of times but he was trying to get in with them so, as that was what he wanted he went in with a very protective ewe, that taught him and he takes no notice of them now.

This ewe was the first to lamb, a single ewe lamb, it was fine and then went off its feet. Thought it might be joint ill but no true symptoms, it couldn't stand so couldn't feed. We started milking the ewe but she was so against it that the lamb has been on a bottle. We were helping it stand and some days it was better than others. No real sense of balance.
Funny thing is that after it had had a bottle it is better at standing and then will go to feed from the ewe.
At one point the ewe was attacking us if we tried to get the lamb from the pen. Now she doesn't mind Em or me getting it but charges the rails at the dogs. I went round the fields in the pouring rain, I had on a long coat and wooly hat and on my return went to feed lamb - the ewe never recognised me and nearly got me! Once I took the coat and hat off she was fine.

Still have four to lamb!
