Wednesday, June 30, 2010 I went to the barn yesterday. I brushed Sunny down and combed out her mane, and then /attempted/ to take some confo shots. They didn't turn out too well because Sun wouldn't stay still. XP I wanted to get out and ride, but my mom said if I would wait until this weekend, she and her boyfriend would go with me on a ride! Yay! It's great to have someone go with me. I hope the horses do well, Joey(my mom's beau) has never ridden. It should be interesting! Starting Saturday I'm staying at the barn for a few nights while my Aunt and Uncle are on vacation. Someone's gotta give the horses their breakfast! :]

Wednesday, July 7, 2010 I attempted to pony Sunny from Lex today- epic fail. Lex acted a fool, and ruined Sunny's training session. But it's okay! Plenty of time to work on it. :) Sunny's been doing well. Been doing alot of work on letting Sunny get used to the bit. She stills does a lot of chomping. Went on a good ride Saturday with Mom and Joey. It was fun, and the horses were decent acting. :) Well, wish me luck with ponying! -crosses fingers-

Monday, July 26, 2010 Sheesh, I haven't written in a long time! So much has happened. The most interesting being that Sunny has a huge chunk of skin torn and hanging from her neck. We believe she did it on the fencing but we aren't entirely sure. She has it rinsed with water and Betadine, then has a cream applied, and gets an antibiotic in her feed daily. The vet said that the skin tag should dry up, but if it doesn't he'll have to cut it off. >.< She's been a good girl with it all, excluding the first day I saw her after it happened. I had been out of town so she hadn't been handled much in over a week, so when she started being fussed over, she fussed right back. Broke a lead, tried to kick me, and even bit me. But since then she's been a sweet girl and the wound is looking better. It happened one week ago exactly. I am taking her to a round pen soon to begin her real training. She needs a bit of a reminder about respect. I will update soon.

Sunday, August 8, 2010 Goodness, I have been bad about writing lately. I didn't go to the barn today because 1)Mom said it was too hot, and 2) Joe and Kim were going to feed before we got there. I'm going tomorrow, though, thankfully. Sunny has hives, I believe. On Wednesday they were all along her girth area and her chest, and on Friday there were a few on her neck and her rear. I think it's just the heat, but who knows...... On another note, I am so angry at myself. I had planned to get so much done with Sunny this summer, and school starts back on Tuesday. I have accomplished nothing. I guess I will just have to push my self extra hard this fall to get things done. She needs to lead better, needs to be backed, needs to trailer load better..... Speaking of, I actually did get her on the trailer twice last week. She ate her dinner in there, so I don't know how she's going to do without motivation....

Sunday, August 29, 2010 Once again, I suck at remembering to write. Apologies. Well, I am going to the barn soon. I plan to ride Sista, hopefully for a few miles on a nice trail ride. Then I'll give everyone a bath, especially Sunny. She has white streaks all over her from sweat and they are impossible to brush off. I'm also going to bring my Western saddle back to the house to get it out of the tack room where it's serving zero purpose. Hopefully i'll be able to sell it. On another note- Sunny, being the injury-prone lunatic she is, has me extremely worried. She got kicked in the leg a week ago, and got a good little knick on her right front cannon. When I was at the barn Thursday she looked like she was favoring it when she was walking on the rocky area of the drive. Ugh. -_-

Sunday, September 5, 2010 I am going to the barn in a few hours. Sunny's combination boots fit her well, so I need to start making use of them. She has been very sweet the last two barn visits. No antsy feet while grooming, minimal pawing. Overall being a sweet girl. Let's hope today follows in those footsteps.

Thanks to PintoTess for reminding me to update! It's been too long. Well, I suppose the most important thing that has happened was that I have been "on" Sunny. I use quotations because I haven't been astride, but been across her back. She's taken my big butt around a 25 foot circle with no issues at all. The saddle even slipped at one point and she was totally chill. She is doing awesome. I am ordering her a new bit soon; she has already outgrown her old one. She's pushing 16 hands! Such a big girl. Well, I'll update soon!
