she looks perfect!!!!

My family had horses before I was born but I didnt get a pony that was mine till I was about 6... She was delivered to my house and had a huge red bow on her, I was young but I still remember... I was elated!!!

You daughter should just LOVE HER

Pics of the "gift opening" Please!!!!

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

you definately need to put pictures of the "gift finding"

if you wanted you could do like a scavenger hunt type thing.

and you could drive her around to help her "find" it. just an idea.

Cute horse. That's sad she was made fun of. Those are the ones who don't appriciate what they have. Every horse deserves the best care no matter what they look like.

Ridingsmylife2- Hang in there and just be helpfull around the barn. You might find someone who just needs some help. People like that often get rewarded! Show your parents you can be responsible in taking care of a horse. Start a little savings call it your "horsey jar" and just start dumping your spare change into it and when they see that you are serious and will contribute to owning (not just riding) then they might re-think. just a thought.

Happy Holidays everyone!

sarah is going to be so excited !!!! i pretty much know what she'll call her, she's in to reading a lot of books and right now she's in to those vampire book's and there's a girl in it named luna that she talks about a lot.
we're still not sure how we will do this, i asked my hay guy if i could leave her at his farm for a few days....(i already board a cow with him, next year meat...didn't want to bring it home and end up a pet)....his horses haven't had there coggins test this year so that's out of the picture.....she'll see it from our neighbours house....our cousines farm is to hectic......
the womam sugguested that we bring sarah with us to pick the horse up next week end and she would put a bow on her before we get there

Yea, I would see if you could find a boarding stable that would house her for a few days. If it was me, I think I would put an envelope under the tree with pix of the horse or her papers in it. That is what I did with my Dad a couple of years ago on his birthday. My step-mom and I picked out the horse and made arangements to buy him. I went and picked him up while my dad was at work and he was still in the trailer when Dad got home a few minutes after I did. We just gave him the envelope with the papers in it and he was so confused for a minute. If nothing else, you could take her on a road trip and have it be an "early" x-mas gift if you can't find somewhere to keep her for a few days. We want pix of her reaction!!! Lucky girl.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

NICE kansas, talking about a good christmas gift eh! I would also suggest asking a neighbor for a temp spot. She won't notice or pay attention right, she doesn't know its HER horse right? once she finds out, all you have to do is walk and get the horse and bring her to your field so what is she? age? etc etc let's hear it!
