    August 12 2009- I gave both my horses a good brushing and we are picking up our regular routine, when I say that I mean I don't medicate Bart anymore and he gets to go and hang out with Dozer in the arena again. I don't know when I will start riding Bart again... I just don't want to cause him pain...

    August 13 2009- Today the plan is to go trailer hunting. It should be fun! Also I am signing back up for 4h with my friend. I am not going to bring Dozer just yet for two reasons, reason one- we don't have a big enough trailer(thats why we are going trailer hunting), reason two- He has to be more flexible and know the one rein stop better. Once those three things are taken care of, he will be doing drills like the best of them!

    August 14 2009- School starts in 3 days! I don't know weather to be excited or nervous. I think I'll go with both. I picked up my schedule today and I have classes with some good friends. The sucky part is I don't know anyone in my health and world geography class! Oh well.
    Today the farrier came to check up on Bart. He said Bart is healing good but I wont be able to ride for like a month! He also said Bart has to stay in his stall for a week or more! Poor Dozer doesn't get a playmate and poor bart is stuck in his stall all day for a week plus! I let bart into the arena yesterday and the day before that and he was fine. Last time the farrier said to keep him in his stall a week and I did and now its moved up to another week!

    August 15th 2009- So there was pretty much NOTHING done with my horses today. I stuck Dozer out in the arena, poor bart still is locked in his stall, and then left to go to the mall. After at least two hundred dollars and three and a half hours spent we went home. When I got home I jumped in my Dad's car and we went and got my new glasses and contacts. When I got home I had to put Dozer back in his stall, feed, and refill the water buckets. I found something to work on tomorrow though. Today a mare was running around in the yard next to me and so he got all excited and then I put food in his stall and he got even more excited(He is a very food motivated kind of horse). So I open the arena and he picked his head up and ran the two steps into his stall. So tomorrow there will be a lot of lunging!

    August 16th 2009- Today I lunged Dozer and that was it with him. Bart has been monopolizing most of my time. Poor guys. One doesn't get the attention he usually does and one is in a ton of pain. The farrier said a month or more before I can even think of riding.

    August 17th 2009- I rode Dozer bareback. We were walking around the arena and we walked up to the barrels laid down on ground. He decided to jump over it and he did. We went over it at a walk then landed cantering. It was fun. I was scared to do it bareback at first though.

    School has screwed me up so bad! I have only ridden him on Monday^^^ and Friday!

    August 18 2009- Bart is still injured and according to the farrier I wont be able to ride for a long time. I free lunged dozer just to get him moving. Didnt have time to ride.

    August 19 2009- Ugh I hate carpooling! The girl that takes me there we take to our house cause she always wants to come over. I mean she is my best friend but all she ever wants to do is sit on the couch and eat food. She doesnt listen to the rules my Dad makes and never says thank you! Instead she says your welcome! I haven't been able to ride because she stys here till four then I do my homework then I have to clean pet cages then I have to muck and then its feeding time! Ugh!

    August 20 2009- Once again no riding for me. I free lunged him but that was it.

    August 21 2009- Why am I so surprised that he was running away with me and spooking at nothing? My trainer kept telling me I was out of control and its like no he just hasnt been ridden for four days and I normally ride every other day. Ugh I don't like my trainer!!

    August 23 2009- Decided to teach Dozer how to bow. He keeps sticking his legs out and just like sitting. Not bowing.

    August 24 2009- Dozer Bowed on his knee! Twice! No riding and bart is still stuck in his stall.

    August 25 2009- Once again no riding. He bowed three times today though!
