    Oh my you are ok right? That is scary. Glad you showed him who's boss.

    I fed Paragon and Grady on one side of the pasture and my colt, Indy, on the other side so Paragon would be less inclined to steal his grain. After Paragon was done with his grain he pinned his ears at me so of course I gave him a good slap and yelled no. He bolted past me and took all his anger out on poor Indy, kicking and nipping at him. I ran over and gave him the hardest slap I could as soon as he stuck his nose in Indy's feed bucket. He jerked his head up and started to rear, and for a split second I think my heart stopped beating, because the look in his eyes was the most angry look I have ever seen in a horse. I think he was seriously considering attacking me. As soon as he came back down, I snapped out of it and my fear was replaced with the most fury I have ever felt toward a horse, the thought that he would DARE think about doing anything to me and I yelled the fiercest "NO!" ever. He got the point and wheeled around and ran back to his side of the pasture.

    Indy was standing to the side and he looked thoroughly shocked and scared so I walked over to him and calmed him down and then walked back over to where Paragon was. Just to make sure that he had abandoned all thoughts of being boss, I took a firm step towards him and ordered him to move away. He looked at me for a second, but then decided that I was serious and he moved away.

    I think over the next few days we are going to be doing a lot of ground work to freshen up on who is boss around here!

    Hey everyone! Since horsecrazygirl shared some new pictures I guess I will. This one of Brandy and me was taken recently. And I know I'm crooked, right after this pic I straightened out!


    Btw, I love your signature, BarrelBunny.

    Horsecrazygirl, yes I am fine, except my hand stung for a while after that! I brought a crop out with me this morning and he was fine. Groundwork today!

    Well third day riding and sugars first run back and we got a lower 24 with a few rider errors and letting him pick his speed. This guy is chubby right now buy still tried his hardest for me and usually a nervous bucker only offered once on a pole event which I expected and we worked through easily :).

    That's amazing HCG!

    BRArabian - that's great! You gotta start somewhere! & in all honesty, I barely started bringing my times down in 2011. (I had already been barrel racing around 4 years or so..) I was always on either a bucker or a runaway. I was always afraid to ask for speed because of those two reasons. I finally got over it and started running low 16's & high 15's. (I run against Pozzi & she was running HIGH 14's, so I think I was starting to do pretty good at the end of 2012!) It takes practice & lots of time.

    Yeah I had my thoroughbred pass away on me after 3 months then the arab I spent 2 1/2 yrs on had so many issues it was sooo hard to really improve on him let alone be competitive.

    My trainer right now has sugar and classy as back ups and then her too big runner shot gun and pistol. Sugar is never going to be a 1d/2d horse but he can still get me started till I am able to afford my barrel horse :) .

    Yep! You just gotta start out slower and work your way up. I'd rather run a slow and right pattern versus a fast and wrong one any day.
