Hello, all!
Guess what? It's moody mare month!
Yeap, Sunny's in season.
That explains her act up the other day.
Oh, yeah. Haven't discussed that.
Well, my aunt was out riding Sis, so the other's were put up. It seemed like a good time to hand walk Sunbun. I tacked her up, bit and all(she did great!) and we headed out. We got to the top of the pasture where Sis was being ridden, so ofcourse Sunny was being loud and such, but no big deal. Well, we starting going down the hill out of sight from Sis, and Sunny EXPLODED. She reared, then bucked, then just crow-hopped in place.
I just watched her until she finished, and then she walked calmly all the way back. Silly horse.
But, that's her first act-up since i've had her, so I most definitely. Can't complain.
I love my Sunbun.

Sunday, May 23, 2010 Grrr.... My horsie-life is filled with anger at the moment. I am SO ready to continue Sunny's training, but the stupid tack store is STILL moving after months, so I can't go get a new bit. I've talked to them so I could set up a date to come get the bit, but after that, they won't answer the phone! It seems trivial, but it's been 6 months. :/// And to add, Sunny is flaring big-time on her right fore, and the farrier did absolutely nothing when he came out. I went to go look at her feet, and they looked the exact same. It's very frustrating. Anywho! Rant over. :]

Sunday, May 30th, 2010 Ahhhh, Summer vacation.... My last day of Junior year was Tuesday, it's great. Now I have all summer to turn my unbroke, crazy TB into a riding horse! I'll keep you guys updated on how many hospital visits I end up with. ;) Anyways, yesterday I went to feed the horses, and I was in a big rush, so I just grabbed a brush and a hoof pick and went into Sun's stall and did a brief grooming job on her, untied. If you guys knew how she was in December, you would be wide-eyed at the fact that I can now pick her feet with her loose. She is still fidgity and tries to pull away if I hold her feet too long(don't know how the farrier deals with it) but she no longer bites my rear when i'm doing her fronts. XD Sometime this week i'm going to pony her on a trail, probably with Lex since they're dating. I keep telling her he's too old, but she won't listen. He's 22, she's 2. XD They sure are best friends, though. :]

Thursday, June 3, 2010 I went to the barn on Tuesday, Sunny was sweet as always. I put her on the crossties and groomed her. She actually cocked a foot when I was brushing her tail! XD She suprises me every day. What a sweet little girl she's becoming. I'm going to go ride Dixie today if the rain holds off. It's been about a week since I rode, I told myself i've gotta stay in shape or i'm going to die when I start Sunbun. XP Mom is really excited about me riding her, I don't know why. Haha. But she did tell me she'd kill me if I got on her if no one was with me. Come on, like i'd do that.... :)

Tuesday, June 8, 2010 I went to the barn to feed today. I hopped on Dixie bareback and rode around the pasture once. She has made so much progress, all of my work is paying off. I've learned that she won't begin to jig and the like unless you try to speed her up when she's walking. Bareback wasn't the best time to figure that out. XP Anywho! I brushed Sunny's legs and picked her feet. Farrier comes next Friday.So, my birthday is tomorrow! We're short on funds, so I won't get my saddle until next week, but that's okay! I'll get my other suprises tomorrow from the boyfriend, including a helmet, breeches, gloves, boots, and a halfpad! :) As soon as I get my saddle Sunny is going into intense training. Can't wait!

Cool, keep us posted!

To ride a horse is to ride the sky.

Friday, June 11, 2010 Well, technically it's Saturday, but whatever. XP I went to the barn today, only planning to feed. But, my aunt-in-law's sister's daughter(haha) was there and wanted to ride, so I went with her since she's too young to go alone. Since the ride wasn't planned, I was in shorts. Not fun. My leg looks like it was put into a meatgrinder from the thorns and saddle sores. But, it was fun. Atleast someone rode with me, even if it was a ten year old. Haha. Sunny got brushed, and that was it for her today. I'm planning to change her feed, i'm really leaning toward Triple Crown Complete. I hope the feed store has it, I don't want to have to order it. Anywho! I'm supposed to go ride with my aunt next week, maybe i'll get to try out my new breeches and boots!

Wednesday, June 16, 2010 I went to the barn yesterday. Got caught in the rain. I oiled everyone's hooves and then ran a quick brush over Sunny. Today I am ordering my saddle and bridle, and Sunny's bit. Hopefully it will be here by early next week! I'm really excited, it'll feel so great to be in a saddle that actually fits me! Anywho! I'm also probably going to order Sunny's shots since she refused to get into the trailer for my aunt yesterday and missed her vet appointment. Crazy girl. XP I'm also going to take Sunbun to a family friend's house to use her roundpen, hopefully make some progress at liberty. We'll see!

Tuesday, June 22, 2010 My bit came in the mail yesterday! Yay! I'm going to take it to the barn today and make sure it fits Sunny. Now i'm just *anxiously* waiting on my saddle to arrive. I can't imagine how great it's going to feel to ride in a saddle that's actually my size! Anywho... Goodness, how time has flown. It feels like Sunbun just came home yesterday, a shaggy, crazy filly. But it's been seven months. Goshhh. She has come so far! But we still have a long way to go... Wish us luck. <3

Wednesday, June 23, 2010 Today was a great day at the barn. I took my new saddle out to try on Dixie, a mare I ride/train/etc. The horses had already finished eating their dinner, and I was tacking up Dixie. While I was getting stuff together, I kept hearing Sunny sigh. I walked out of Dixie's stall, and as I turned to wave bye to Sunbun, I didn't see her! She was laying down, sleeping. XP I went in and sat with her and rubbed her face for a bit, then went for a quick ride on Dixie. The saddle fit great! Super comfy. And the bit I ordered fit Sunny perfect! So, I had a great day. Love my baby. <3
