When I was younger, before we had our own barn. I helped out at horse farm/boarding stable who also rented horses for guided trail rides. Loved hearing all the gunhoe wanna be cowboys that acted like riding horses is easy or just plan got stupid on horse back. Fast-forward here comes the very same horse Mr. Expert rider was on rider-less. I loved yelling out "Rider-Less horse coming back"

I hate it when my boyfriend makes degragatory comments about how much my Friesian filly cost when I bought her, and how that price was "worth a used snowmobile"! I love him to death, but it gets on my nerves when he goes on about how expensive she is. (We currently board at a barn where I work off my board, so I'm only paying about $40/month!)
What he doesn't know- and it's something I'll never tell him!- is that she cost twice what I told him she cost. It was the most I've ever, ever paid for a horse, and she was an unbroke 2 year old! I won't say what I paid for her, but I will say that she cost LESS than a Friesian foal in utero! I really did get a sweet deal- more so because she's such a sweetheart.

He just doesn't understand that she's worth so much more than money to me, and how I'd be so very, very sad and depressed if something happened to her. She's my whole world! She's made me realize more about myself than any other horse in my life has. I truly believe that raising and teaching her has given me new insight into my behavior, and how it affects others, including her. It sounds corny, but it's like I'm being given the chance to better myself by treating her well, and raising her correctly.

Hahaha man what is it with non-horse people that bring like freaking MOUNTAINS of carrots?! I mean just cause it's a big animal doesn't mean it needs 200 carrots per sitting!!

When non horse people assume that your horse they know more about horses then you do, cause they read a couple of books on them. Umm I don't think so.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.
