Share your accomplishments and good news!

Okay, so after parusing for a while, I realized that there aren't any threads ( that I could find) where you can tell those daily accomplishments or good news, so this thread is a place to say those little things that make you proud of yourself but you wouldn't start a thread over them!! Y'all are all awesome!! Haha so let er rip!

Today Regena did not bite me while I was fixing her blanket at feeding time. Hooray! She's started to get nippy at feeding time and has bitten me twice in the past 3 days. She is also kicking out at me so we have some work to do.

I got the okay from the owner of a 2 almost 3 year old Arab gelding, to start getting him out and working him. The owner is too busy to come out, have no idea when she was last out, and the horse has horribly overgrown feet, he's been caked in mud since the rains in December, and apparently tried kicking both the farrier, and the BO last time the farrier was out about a week or so ago. Well I'm thinking I'm gonna have a fight on my hands, so I'm prepared to go in, and have to show him I'm the boss, after arguing with him for who knows how long before he gives in. Well, I walk in, he just stands there looking at me, so I put the lead rope over his neck then try to put my halter on him, which ended up being a bit too small, so I put it on the last hole, leave it on, then go get my bigger halter of my car (about 5 feet away from his stall). Go back in, switch out the halters, put a stud chain on, just for safety sake not knowing the horse. Up to this point he's been perfect, so I decide to take him out. We exchanged some words on what direction we were actually going to go, and then I was able to walk him down to the roundpen rather easily, turned him out, let him move a bit, then took him back home, and he did AWESOME. I spent a good hour grooming him, and I'm not even half way done, but he was so amazingly good especially for not knowing me, and not having been out since who knows when. That totally made my day lol.

Beau: that's awesome! Haha I hate it when hirses try to take a bite at you! And good luck with the rest of your training!!

Dressage: hahah your story made me laugh, those insane Arabs just don't know when to quit! You must have gone home smiling after that! He sounds like he's going to be a pleasure to work with. I would love to follow that progression!

Barrel: don't you just love those days when it just seems to click?!

Wooh these are great! Anyone else?

My good news of the YEAR! The horse that my barn sent away and got sent back for being too crazy, and I've been training for the past 3 months, can now walk trot canter, side pass and leg yields like a dream :) Very big day!

Milo has stopped tempting the mustangs in his herd and getting his ass kicked for it. He also is learning voice commands- Whoa has been a good one. He has made a comeback from his previous weight, which was a hundred pounds underweight when I first got him.

And I heard from another renter that he has a stubborn streak- which does not seem to rear its ugly head with me. Milo is a very one-person horse, I suppose.

Step one: Mount horse. Step two: Stay mounted.
