I woke up sick, and my computer battery/charger is dying. So happy freaking new year…but really, I do hope that everyone else is having a good day today. Welcome to all of the newbies!

Hello everybody! I'm still sick, but in a good mood, so not all bad . I've learned that every second of happiness that you get is something to be held on to and treasured, so that's what I'm doing.

Aww, just thinking about that Jan 1 breed standard - Cash is now considered 3. Baby Boy is not a baby anymore. *sniffle*

Going off of two hours of sleep over here. Just a bit tired LOL.

Cyn, I know how you feel about babies growing up. Henny turns 2 in April! My baby boy doesn't look like a baby anymore. ): But he'll always be my baby boy, even when he almost weighs half a ton. Could you imagine a cradle that big?

Cyn and Kayella, I'm having the same thoughts about my coming three-year old. He will be three late February. Yesterday again a man at my barn says, "When are you going to put a saddle on him? It's time." Sigh. I'm enjoying the ground work so much and we are still working on some things. Side passing for example. I'm not in a hurry, but am looking forward to getting him with a trainer this Spring and riding him in the summer.

The old man at my barn is pressuring me about backing Henny. HE'S NOT EVEN 2 YET. Once he does turn 2, I think I'm going to start some light lunging and beginning saddle work. I have a bareback pad I'm going to strap him up with some time soon. I won't even think of backing him until he's at least 3. He's so immature physically, and because of his brain damage, he's got worse than normal balance for his age. I have no problem whatsoever waiting to start him the right way. :)

It is good not to push them too young. I spent yrs married into the cutting horse world and saw so much done to young horses to be ready for the 3 year old futurity.

I have a new, beautiful blue saddle pad and coordinating polo wraps hanging out in my closet, just waiting for baby boy to fill out...
I had an awesome bday
