HR, They are really good! Way better then anything I could have done. I suck at drawing, but give me stickers sequins or anything else that needs to be stuck on or designed come to me. That I can do. Drawing, not so much.
I am 5. Really short. See my problem? I still ride a almost 16hh horse. I might be short but I got long legs for my size. Helps a lot!
My instructor is selling Dusty . Today right in the middle when I was riding him a girl and her daughter showed up to take a look at him. As difficult of a horse he is, I'm going to miss him if they buy him. I've put a lot of hard work into this horse, and even though he is still a pain in the butt, I'm going to miss the old guy. But, what makes me a little mad is when they were riding him they let him get away with everything I've taught him not to do, so now I feel that when I ride him tomorrow he'll try some of those habits. And I feel really discouraged from today he was a major pain. I don't know...just read my thread "Am I a bad rider or is he difficult horse".
Mmm:( what a horrible day.. Im sick with a sore throat and an ear infection. And Duke died today.. Or is dying:/ Im pretty sure he is probably passed by now.. Please don't tell me I didnt do what *I* could. I tried everything to get him up. He just didnt have the strength. The vet wouldnt have been any help honestly, because he would want to put him down for $150.. We don't have to spend.. So I stayed out there with him. Putting some hay infront of him. And He munched it down like he was starving( practically was - long story) and was his normal self.. despite the fact his front end was not helping him when he tried to get up:(
He would try to get up and slide because his legs werent working or somehing. I don't know. And to make things worse. Its windy and snowy outside:( anyways.. I put a blanket on him and sat there.... pettin ghim and promising him everything was going to be okay.. I feel like such a liar.. EVERYHING IS NOT OKAY:( He is dead:( he died.. I think while I was there.. or maybe after I left.. he would look at me:( and he could only move his eyes. With little muscle movement from not sure:/
Sorry if this is too much detail..
After realizing he wasnt going to get up, I took off his halter and sat his head in my lap.. crying and talking to him...:/ then I had to go in because it was dark. But I could tell he was towards the end.. and thought he would like to be left alone.. But I feel horrible about it:( I just wish I could have done something to help him:(.. I put sunny and poncho is a different pen so they wouldnt bother him..
I am atleast happy that I made his last hours as comfy as a could out in the cold. Wrapped in my arms.. talking to him.. :/ mmm this part of owning horses sucks
