Yep so the deal we worked out today is im going to sponsor him basically. $250 a month to cover his feed and farrier (2 biggest sore points for me lol) and the rescue still covers his vet bills.

We came to the agreement that it would be a casual sponsorship so I don't havae a set amount of time to sponsor him. That way if a family comes that wants to adopt him and we both approve of them then he will go to them. If not and I still want to get him at my PCS date then I still wont have to pay an adoption fee and they will get me the rescues discount to ship him home which will probably be around $800-900 easy peasy.

Plus im going to have alot of extra income headed my way now lol. Im going to be training a 3 yr old filly for some friends at the ranch, I have my little side projects (550 creations and ducttape creations ((dont ask lol))) up and running...tomorrow im going to talk to one of the other boarders about working with their horse as well. They just hired one of the volunteers and she is HORRID. She doesnt know how to ride she can't even direct rein or lunge plus she is immensely over this horses weight limit so hopefully I can get the owners AND the poor horse out of a very sticky situation with this crazy chick trying to scam them. (another looong story)

But anyways lots of drama, lots of work, hopefully some good moolah and CHAMP coming my way lolol

Haha thank you^^^ and yes! I got to go out there today and spent a good hour at least just rubbing and loving on him today!

No riding because his feetz are pretty tender and he kinda tweaked his bad leg being a fool in the arena but quality time with him is always fun lol

In other news I started helping Chrissy and Tyler with their new filly today. She is SO smart and so willing but she's still just a baby.
Puwey (1st owner) always keeps his horses in stalls, and where they got her from she was also stuck in a stall so I don't think she every really got the chance to get out ans stretch her legs alot.

And she's also never been on a lunge line before so she was a little nervous and unsure about what I was asking of her. Also the halter they had on her was a little big so I didnt really have alot of leverage so twice when she got fed up she ducked her head and turned away then pulled the rope outta my hands, so I have a nice rope burn on my palm now. Shame on me for not wearing my gloves!

But she quickly got the hang of it and began walking/trotting in a nice even circle around me and after me, Tyler and we ended it shortly after. So all in all a good session with her!

Well this has been a stressful new year so far!
The army has decided that I owe them about $900 in backpay(from when I lost my rank and they never changed my pay) so I've been informed that they plan on taking it out in one big chunk this next pay check...meaning ill get about $100 awesome.

Then I find out one of my friends died on sunday. He was rearened and run over on his bike and died at the hospital! Not a good day today.

To add on to ALL that I find out the company has changed our mission cycle. Now instead of our FTX being in may it will be in I may not get to go home for my sisters wedding in chich im supposed to be the Maid Of Honor!

The cycle will also continue all the way to October. And we will be in the field for 2 weeks in June, 2 in July (we get to train all the tunnel rats on the tactical side...yay. Not.) and then we will be going to....wait for it....

TEXAS for a month! About the only good news I've had all day. We get to go back to 'Merica for a full month in september and go to my lovely TX home and play in the field there!

So hopefully tomorrow is a better day(i have a pt test so that's never GOOD) and I can get out to the ranch for some much needed alone time with my boy Champ....lets just hope that he's SOUND finally. He's been lame for 3 weeks now!!!!!

That's very similar to my experience and it appears some things never change......the needs of the army being one of them.

Wooh. So right Gunslinger haha

Wow I haven't updated in awhile. Buuuut since im sitting here on guard duty freezing my bum off I figure, what the heck right? Lol

I finally got to ride Champ this Saturday. Tubbos so fat my saddle won't fit him! O.O haha and I got my rope out and started getting him used to it even though I'll probably never rope off him.

After that I had such a LOVELY time bathing the donkeys *sarcasm* surprisingly the younger/shyer one Rio did better than his big bro Marty.

The army finally fixed my pay and I'm "living the life" pulling guard at the motor the rain.....then I get to stay up all day for some high speed training...then sleep till tomorrow night when I have staff duty Lol. Its going to be awesome

Bet they didn't give you any bullets.....did they?

Kind of silly IMO, put someone on guard duty, give them a weapon, but no bullets.

Lol I don't even have a rifle! Haha just me and my super awesome self...and the 3 or more knives I usually have on me.

This is more of a formality type of deal

We have sensitive items out and would indeed need guards in a hostile environment so according to regs. My poor frozen self has to be here
