    Green Broke
    Took Henny for a walk today and he was a naughty little boy. If he slacked too far behind me I would tug on his halter a couple times and he knows that to mean speed up. He decided to throw a fit when I did it and crow hopped a bit. I spun his butt around right quick and backed him a few feet before continuing on. After just a few feet I had to tug on him again and he again refused and as he just started thinking of popping up, I whooped his behind into a lunge circle and lunged him a few laps before continuing on. He was fine after that but I was a lot stricter with him than I usually am to keep his lesson in mind. It doesn't help that during all this my mom is screaming and gasping behind me, freaking out. I don't know what her deal is. If you freak out, they freak out.

    Anyways, he did a lot better the rest of the time and got to stand tied for about twenty minutes when we got back to the barn. I need to start their tying lessons again to work on their patience. I used to tie them for the fifteen-twenty minutes it takes me to clean their paddock. Think I'm gonba start that up again a few days a week.

    What are you showing?
    Yes, you seem to be doing alright ;) Cash will be trained for Showmanship, WP, Trail, and eventually Western Riding, whether or not he ever goes to a show. Those are what I know and enjoy. But he's still out growing on pasture whereas many 2 year olds are already showing under saddle, so I'll just have to see where our path leads and on what time table.

    Kayella you can come for a visit and teach all these hyper arabians of mine some patience.
    Nuisance I am ok and this last treatment was a little rougher than the others.
    But I am ok and will be a better person for enduring this. Or so I keep telling myself.
    When I went through the treatments 3 years ago I promised my self I would do what I have wanted my whole life. Raise arabian horses on a larger scale and devote my retirement to that. So I bought some more mares and Star.
    Now I am trying to decide what to reward my self with this time. A trip to the outback of Australia is looking good. Or maybe South Africa.
    Although riding in Palo Duro Canyon would not disappoint me. It is on my bucket list and then some of my Texas friends could accompany me.
    . We could meet up with Nusiance on the way and caravan to the panhandle. Then we could all meet smrobs. If we drove all that way she **** well better meet us.
    Infact that sounds a lot more appealing than getting all those shots to go to Africa, fly for 24 hours on a plane with people who have not bathed since yesterday and don't have the same grooming practices we demand of each other in the USA.
    That I am not joking about. Shalom

    Good to hear from you, DB! Keeping you in my thoughts. When do we leave for this fantastic trip?

    How about spring of next year? Smrobs can probably tell us when the best time to plan for a ride will be. She lives in the great white north near Canada doesnt she? LOL Shalom

    Haha, yeah no rush! You could probably start working on SMS if you wanted to. But that's my absolute least favorite class ever..... aha.

    I'll probably start Lily sometime next year as a full/mid 2 year old and do some walk/trot classes at the end of the year. See how she takes to it. I'd like to keep her in "show mode", even if I just go for halter/showmanship and don't ride her. It sure would be nice to do some fun, no pressure, walk/trot open shows again! I haven't done that since I was a kid!

    Cash's SMS pivot and setup are getting there, but our trot offs are sloppy. If his withers catch back up to his hip, I hope to restart undersaddle work soon.

    I'm happily sipping apple cider and munching on ginger snaps, pretending it won't be 95 this afternoon. I miss autumn in MI/OH.

    Good morning. Waiting for repairman to fix what they broke a couple weeks ago. Need to get up off this computer and pack, hook the trailer to the truck, get my tack in. Give Lil a good bath (that may have to wait till it gets warmer this afternoon). Getting laundry done, need to clean house, so I don't come back to a dirty house..... well... DH home with 2 dogs, it's going to be dirty! Lol Have to make some snacks to take. All the meals are included.

    Guess I'd better get up off my arse and do something!
