The life of a barn rat.


I decided to start a new journal. It would be much appreciated if one of the moderators would delete my old one, or move it too the removed messages/topics. I feel so unpowerful know that I am not a moderator...( I have been super busy..)

I woke up about nine this morning to my friend calling me and asking me to hurry up and get dressed all professional because I had a job interview thing she was taking me too. It took me an hour and a half to look nice. I wore a short black shirt. And a blouse with a black jacket over it. I also wore some really cute black high heels that I love. I put my hair up in a clip and the place was down town, that's about a twenty minute drive which would suck. Also I found out the hours would be tuesday to friday 3-9 and all day saturday so if I am offered the job I don't plan on taking it. ( the high heels put a blister on my toe... )

Afterwards I went to the grocery store I am currently working at and got myself some lunch. I had these like thai noodles that were really good.

Then my mom made me clean my room.

I finally got to the barn at 2:30 and took some fortune cookies ( like forty that we ate all of ) we did nothing for a while then I took out myke and everybody started to take out horses....Haha, I started a trend. Sarah took out viento (due to a long and confusing story ) and My other friend had her horse luna..I had myke with this other girl that's in 6th grade that helps us, she's way cool and loves myke.

After this we dug and dug...oh and also did some pudding (that's also long and confusing. Of which I will have a video to show you. )

One of the mares is due to have a baby on wednesday. I am super excited and my animal teacher is letting me miss class on monday t o let me go to the barn and get our birthing stall prepared. And clean up the soon to be momma so she looks like a beautiful mom.
I will have pictures of this as well. ( something was funny because the owner told us to call her if anything other then poop comes out of her butt...especially if its two little hoofs. )

Oh and the scariest thing.....At about 4:30 my teacher comes out to our barn and tells me that someone was coming and looking at my mustang to see if they wanted her around 6:00 to 6:30 that night. At about 10 to 6 I decide to take her out to put her in the round pen to let her run around some and she was not in the turnout. Sarah and I start freaking out and notice her nylon halter was gone as well and then we start looking everywhere. I call patty yelling my horse is gone!! Ahh! And freaking out because someone was going to be there ( after a hour drive ) to see her in 10 minutes! Sarah and I then go up by the store and see my teacher and two unknown people and my horse is in there trailer. Yeah, random, I thought that they were going to be there later and that they would look at the horse before taking her. I am glad though that she had not ran off ten minutes before those people showed up...that kind of thing only happens in a movie.

I am happy though.. I don't have to worry about my own horse and I can relaze. The weather is also getting nice.

I think a horse would be nice when I have a higher paying job, but I think I have it good for the time being. I can take out myke whenever and I have so many other horses I have promission to ride so I have a worry free life...

The end of the quarter was this last week, so I also have a breather from lots of work for a while. Spring break is also this next week and so I am leaving to go to moab UT for the Utah jeep safari. I am way excited. I will be gone from wednesday to sunday. I told everyone that if the baby that's due wednesday starts sticking out to shove her back in and tell it that it must wait for OH! Crazy myth thing....Monday is a full moon...( the myth that a mare will have its foal on a foal moon......) so maybe the baby will be born monday. That would be exciting!!!

April Fools Day...Hmm...No jokes. Guess my family is getting too old for april fools?

Today was sunday so I could not go out to the barn. I did go and get my camera though, I left it there. I have some really funny videos I need to show you guys at some point. Tomorrow I will try to get some links up.

Nothing really happened today. I was super bored. I should have gone to, but didn't. Lol.

Happy Easter!

Today I did go to the barn, but only to see my pals. I have missed them. I went to Moab for the Jeep Safari and did some SWEET 4-wheeling trails, My favorite was when we were on relatively flat ground and we stood up in the jeep. It was a BLAST!

I will try to get a link of us on there for you guys.

So I was asked to junior prom and then the guy texted me today and said, sorry but I can't go...I am slightly annoyed.

Don decided he had to teach me How I should be training, he is really getting on Sarahs and mine cases, he wont let us do it our way, he keeps telling us to find our way then gets angry when we don't. AH! He gets really annoying at times, I guess that can't be helped.

Its raining, and its also almost midnight. I have school in the morning and yeah, I don't want to go.

I don't WORK SATURDAY! So guess what I am doing.....SPRING SHOTS!!!

Oh and guess what else is saturday...THE DUE DATE FOR ONE OF THE BOARDERS MARES!!! We have a paso fino in foal due the 14th...I am super excited and hope to see it come, that would be awesome, we think its going to be a palomino pinto. The mothers traits go all the way back to being pintos and the father is palomino....we will see how that goes.

I will get lots of pictures tmw....

Anyhow, I promised pictures of us 4- wheeling so here you go....

Wow. Its been sometime. I have been quite busy but it's summer now! Hurray. Myke has nearly shed out completely and is now being half leased by a cute little girl named Abbey.

Sarah and I have constantly disagreeing with things lately and its really putting me down. Today I was weeding around the barn and she was really mad that I had a shovel and was getting down to the bottom of the roots. I don't know why... She started telling me it was going to look worse....but then Patty came out and was really pleased with what I had done. ( earlier in the day sarah was saying how everything was growing back in 2 days. I tried to tell her if you get the roots out then it doesnt grow back and in stead of a yellow ground we can have a brown ground. But of course she doesnt listen. We'll see how long till we need to weed there again....)

The barn owner ended up getting a new horse..Hes dark brown and VERY queit. He is only 3 years old but hasnt spooked at anything yet and only goes when you ask him too! I'm excited! I have not ridden him but according to Don we could even think about using him for lessons.

Oh and the mare at the barn had her baby a month or two ago. A colt, and as planned a Pinto Palomino.

Well, I got to go to work so I will talk to everyone later!

6-17-07 Fathers Day

No barn on Sundays. But that's alright. I had fun today, I've done quite a bit. Mostly texted some pretty hott guys (one in particular.) on my phone...I guess that's what I end up doing when I'm not at the barn...

Oh gosh something really upsetting did happen today! We ended up taking my precious sheltie dog to the vet! She was appearing very sick so we took her there as soon as we had a chance! After some blood tests they found out its her liver and think she has hepatitis. I am really worried and not being able to sleep very well. (its actually 2 am on a monday morning not a sunday night.) I plan on driving my car to the vet first thing in the morning! I can't wait to see how she's doing.

Aww, I'm sorry :( How is she doing?? I hope she's feeling better!
