I love your stalls Blue!

Well, I might need to take a break from lessons for a bit because Rowing (The sport) is getting a bit expensive. Luckily I have a back-up elderly arabian pony that I can still ride for practice and fun as much as I want :/ The little 14.2 1/2 hand arabian mare isn't the same as a 16.2 hand thoroughbred gelding... Although I do prefer mares.

Like others were discussing before, mares seem to try harder, are a bit more fun to ride and seem to have more of a "connection" with their rider.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

Thanks AJ

GOOD NEWS GUYS! S's husband, G, was here today, and had a look at the broken doors. He reckons he can fix them easy. I don't know what we're going to do to keep Magic in while he has the gates [he's going to take them home to fix them] but he's fixing them NO MORE ANNOYING BOXES!

Magic has pulled a kick board away from the wall a little bit, so that needs fixing too [but is simple, a couple of nails or perhaps a couple of coach screws would do the trick just nicely], and the box Gambler's in isn't very secure so we're going to put a timber offcut across where it latches up so he can't break out. Right now he's being kept in with a short tie up rope clipped to his door and Magic's broken door. But that just takes a cordless drill/driver [the 'barn' has no power to it so I can't use my corded one], some coach screws, and a little block of wood, so it's a simple fix.

So much work needs doing in those stables. They must have been REALLY nice when they were new though.

All structures need maintenance. Just a fact of life. Keep adding to that tool box-good tools make the job easier.

You can use stall guards instead of the doors, and if the doors are originally closed to the ceiling you may find the horse on stall rest will lik it better!

I got into horses because when we first moved into the country (not as in like USA but opposite of city, ya know?) my BFF was showing horses, so I went with her. Started riding this horse named willy behave: 32y/o. Soon, he was the love of my life. He taught me to ride, and taught me soo many other things. Soon, winter was coming and my trainer let me have willy for the winter!!! Omg that was awesome. I gave him back two weeks before my bday. Two days after my bday, my trainer called and said willy passed away two days ago. I was sooooo heartbroken. The next year I was leasing two new loves of my lives: Annie and holly. American quarter horse mares. Holly got sick so I had to give her back, and in exchange, I got my current barrel horse, copper!!! He is the love of my life. And hopefully we get to the big leagues this year. :) sorry its long, but I actually condenseed it a lot. Talk to you later, and don't forget to message me!!!!

Bye!

Thanks for the ideas guys :)

Yeah all structures do need maintenance, sadly these stables haven't really been maintained. They were gorgeous when they were new, that much is obvious, but we know they were quite neglected for quite some time. The people who owned the place before its current owners totally neglected it. If they'd been looked after it wouldn't be nearly as big a job to get them nice again.

I'm going to a Barrel Blowout event on April 23rd! It's a fundraiser for the local 4-H. (I'm not in 4-H.) I'm going just for fun and it will be the first place I take Brandy that is off the barn property. Excited! And four days after that I'm taking my horse to cowboy church.

**I must not forget to thank the difficult horses, who made my life miserable, but who were better teachers than the well-behaved school horses who raised no problems.**
