    Hopefully, I don't know if I'd want a pasture full of horses or not... I think I'll probably just find a nice dressage/jumping barn and find the perfect, young OTTB. We'll have to see how everything turns out, I'd like to think I'll be able to comfortably afford a horse some day though... preferably before I'm 30 because I don't know how long I can wait!

    Yesterday I decided to compile all of my journal entries up until November 22... and 64 slides later, I am done... however, I am going to begin fishing for other threads pertaining to Indie and add more pictures. I'm going to get a binder to store the pages in so that I can read the entries whenever I feel like it.

    I know a part of me is always going to miss her. I started crying when I started to copy the entries over, but when I read a part in my journal entry where I mentioned looking forward to many more years together, I just broke down.

    You need to stop hurting yourself over and over again, girl.
    I was wondering where you were. Still riding?

    Still riding, twice a week but my instructor said I can come down and work with the new project pony all I want this summer. I'm riding Major, since Roger is undergoing a "transformation process" which I'll share more about once I just give a quick update on my own riding. :p I've been doing a lot of jumping and striding in my lessons... usually jumping in the group and striding/equitation/flatwork in my individual lesson. Major loves jumping now, and it's blowing everyone out of the water. Who would've thought that little western pleasure would love to jump? He enjoys throwing a couple celebratory bucks after the first few jumps but he gives it his all and clearly loves it. I'm not showing nor leasing this year though.

    As for Roger's five star treatment. My instructor booked him a massage awhile ago and found that he was fairly out of order... I think his pelvis was misaligned as well as some other things. So, he was getting regular massages for a decent amount of time. He was also started on an ulcer supplement and even started getting probiotic yogurt, which I forget the reason behind. Recently, a privacy screen was put across 3/4 of the front of his stall since his new neighbor is a ridiculously nasty mare. Roger is just grumpy, but this horse is just plain nasty, to put it simply. My instructor says he's starting to improve a little bit, so hopefully he continues to.

    Good to hear. Let's hope life improves for Roger now.
    So....a pony? Can't wait for an update....
        06-07-2013, 10:21 PM
    Yes, a pony... who is a little spit fire it seems. My instructor sold Romeo, so she needed a new pony to eventually incorporate into the lesson program. She originally went to look at a different pony, but after the twelve year old boy hopped on this pony (who is three years old) and just kicked her to walk and kicked her to "run"... and then the rein snapped and she just stood there, my instructor decided that this pony was 'the one'. To be able to tolerate that was impressive, so she brought the pony home in the coming week. Some people are not meant to own horses, but luckily, some horses are tolerant of it... the boy and his grandfather apparently tried selling her a lame horse after claiming "he isn't lame, this happens every year and he comes out of it eventually".

    The first day at the barn, the pony jumped the pasture fence because prior to being let out, my instructor wanted to see her move in the arena and let her go over a jump or two. Apparently she cleared all the jumps easily, so she might just be the next Romeo, who was convinced he was an Olympic show jumper and one of the most forward thinking horses at the barn... despite being 12hh.

    We say " the smallest have the most venom".... goes for horses, too, apparently.
    12 hands....where are you going to put your legs...

    It must... it seems like she'll be a good replacement for Romeo once she's had enough work put into her. And I'm not sure, they'll probably be a couple inches off the ground at most!

    I was thinking about you the other day.

    One of the horses at my barn is moving to your barn at the end of this month. She is a sweet big ol draft cross mare. You may actually know her as she was trained there. She is deathly afraid of mounting blocks
