Well, I can't even begin to explain how excited I am for my horse Stetson. Two ladies came out today to look at him (He is currently for sale.) & fell inlove with him! I am so happy that they are really interested in him. They are looking for a trail riding horse & he is just perfect for that. They are going to be giving me a call tonight to give me their final answer... I'm so nervous & happy... I hope they take him! The ladies seem really nice & now how to handle horses. :)
Anyways, back to my story...
So we had Angel & Faulky. My sister & I rode a lot... everyday. A few years later we moved again... takng the horses with us... thank God. LOL. As soon as we got settled in my sister got a new horse for her birthday: A pregnant off-the-track 14 year old thoroughbred. Her papered name was Chester's Sister... I'm sure you can look her up & find her pedigree. Anywho... we rode her & waited anxiously each day for her to give birth. Soon enough, out came Stetson (Quarter horse x Thoroughbred). He was amazing. At this time (2006) We had Angel, Faulky, Garnet, & Stetson. My sister & I helped each other raise Stetson & we rode each horse pretty much everyday. Later on in September of 2007, Apache entered my life. My dad bought me a beautiful paint mare for my birthday. She was 7 years old at the time & had not been ridden in 2 years. I started her on natural horsemanship to gain her trust & now her & I's bond is unbreakable. So, yeah, sadly during that year Faulky passed away. He died of old age.
Then the next year in 2008 we sold Garnet because we were no longer working with her. Now, to this day, we are down to Angel, Stetson, & Apache. My sister quit riding in January 2009 & gave me Stetson (He was mostly hers.). So I owned all three horses. I rode Apache & Stetson everyday during the summer (Angel is a retired pasture pony.
). I have been barrel racing with Apache since Jan. 2008 & plan on keeping it up. We are getting better & better at it everyday & plan on getting serious about competing for money. Stetson I worked on training him for barrels but sadly he is not cut out for it.
So I have slowly lost interest in working with him. That is the reason why he is for sale. I am so happy that some people are really interested in him. Soon I will be down to Apache & Angel. Apache is my main horse & Angel will be her pasture companion.
Anyways... I think that is enough for today. I think that gives you enough background. I have been trail riding for 10 years & barrel racing for 2. I will start recording my daily "events" on here tomorrow.
Thanks for reading! 8)
