    He's a mustang but considered grade as he wasnt born in the wild. He's quite a joker too! Has a million ways to make a person laugh!

    Sorry I havent been able to update for a few days guys! With the weather and my schedule Blazey has been getting a few days off from riding. According to the weather the next ride should be on monday! If my arena isnt flooded at the time.

    Wow! I didnt realize it had been six days since I rode Blazey last! Due to my busy schedule I wasnt able to get on his fat butt for a while! I finally did today though! I guess I know he's the same after a break at least! I got on him and walked and trotted him around a little. Then we did some loping (for the first day since he's been here he's caught all of his leads without having to fight over which ones we were going to pick up!) and stopping and just tried to get Blazey back in the groove. He did buck once but only because he didnt want to move laterally on the fence for a side pass. Otherwise loping and everything he was actually better than usual! Crazy how that works! Its really solidifying in my mind that I want him to be a kids horse. As soon as he gets some more experience in the horse world! Im considering taking to a horse show series next year just to be able to say that he has been shown before.

    Well since one of the lambs I raised this year isnt feeling well and its completely my fault I've been having trouble handling any of my animals without feeling bad. However today, for the first time since the lamb got hurt I got Roman an Blaze out and worked with them. I couldnt find the strength to work with Blaze under saddle but I did take the time to lunge him a bit to keep him under work. I've got someone coming out to look at the lamb tomorrow morning so hopefully the news will be good enough to get me out of this slump im in.

    Well! Good news. The lamb is okay! She's just tenderfooted! So im feeling MUCH better! I had a friend come over today who wanted to ride so I stuck her on my old plodder Blazey and I rode Rosie. She was able to get him to walk and trot wherever she wanted him too and he was a perfect gentlement (except for wanting to snatch mouthfuls of grass every chance he got!) Which a green rider is the first step to becoming a childrens horse for him! He did excellent! Now I just have to KEEP working with him and get all that fat off. Im considering riding him personally a little bit later. As good as he was earlier I think he still needs some more excercise! He's a fat chunk! He needs to build those muscles!

    Well luckily the first thing I did this morning was look at my phone to see the weather! I got just enough time in to ride well before the rain started. Blaze has finally seemed to realize the whole "leads" thing as he has caught every lead correctly the last two times I've ridden him. Right now im just working on guiding with him as he likes to veer off the rail when he thinks he can which irks me fiercely. However I've trained worse habits out of a horse so im not going to complain about veering. When I was rushing to get everything put up before the rain came my mother was outside covering some things up and she noted how much better he looks since I brought him home! I took a minute to look and I realized that he HAS changed a lot! I've just been seeing him every day and seeing the changes more gradually! I need to get some new pictures of him so I can compare!
