There hasnt been much done recently. I've been busy trying to save my ferret whitee. Ill post a picture. Right now the vet said that his kidneys arent functioning properly and he most likely has a tumor in his pancreas. He also has low blood sugar and something else that I forget the name of. It starts with an I, well anyways, the vet said it is the highest he has ever seen in a ferret. They told us they could scan him to know for sure and then remove the tumor but they want over $1000 and even if they remove the tumor it can still come back. I don't know what we are going to do =(

August 26 2009- I rode Dozer with the bareback pad and we consentrated on staying on the rail. He got a little crazy at the canter but after a while he was back to normal.

August 27 2009- I was going to ride Dozer but he kept spooking at the same corner of the arena so I just had him walk and trot past it until he was calm. I would have rode but there is so much ash in the air from the nearby fires I don't want to over work him.

August 28 2009- Dozer and I just hung out for a little. I feed around five because we went to go watch the 66ers and I didnt get home till like 10:30pm.

August 29 2009- We were going to let Bart out in the arena alone because he has been recovering in his stall for 15 days. But of course me being me, I called the farrier and asked if it was a good idea and he said no and that he would be out to check up on him in a week. I feel so bad for Bart. And whitee. =(

Ok so today started really bad! I woke up, got dressed for school around six then went to the kitchen for breakfats. Well on my way I noticed my neighbor running in and out of the same stall. I knew something was wrong.... I told my parents and my dad got dressed. I went outside and asked if they needed help. She said yes and can you get your dad too. I told her he was coming. He came out and we jumped the fence to their yard.

The horse had casted itself! Her back legs where stuck outside and she was laying down from colic and trying to roll. We had to pull her this way and push her taht way until we finally got her to the point where she would be able to stand up. After a while she got up and her owner started walking her. After 4 steps out of the stall she started backing up to go back in. We all had to pull and then she followed. After a while this old farmer dude told us to just let her lay down if that's what she wants. I immediatly said, "Why in the world would you let her lay down!? That doesnt help!" They still let her lay down anyways. A minute or two later my trainers husband came(I called them and asked for their help at the begining) and he said to get her up and walking so we did. It was so scary the horse was having heart attacks and at some points she would just blank out. The owner decided it was her time to go so she was calling a bunch of vets and after a while got a hold of one and made the arrangements. I left before it happened but not because I couldnt handle it, because my friend was at my house waiting for me so we could go to school.

I know it sounds like she had it bad but after a little bit of walking she was back to normal. I would have kept her alive because she thought it wasnt her time to say good bye. When I say that its because, when we talked to the vet and he told us to just let her lay down and keep her still, she wouldn't. She didnt want to lay down and I kept saying that but the owner was not listening. It snot like it maters what I think. She wasnt my horse...

She was 23yo and had ringbone, sidebone, and bad arthrituis. It was only a matter of time...

September 1 2009- Around 11am my grandparents and aunt, uncle, and cousin all had to evacuate so they are here. We have six horses in our arena, Dozer stuck in his stall, and Bart with two donkeys in his stall. We also have six dogs and a goat here as well. My grandparents cat is with our cat, Milkshake, and I feel bad because she is looking skinny for some odd reason and Meow(my grandparents cat) is a big scary fluffball. Haha. Ill get some pics so you can see whats happening.

September 2 2009- Well all the horses that came here went home except for the donkey Radar. He just would not load! Well Im actually kind of happy. He is a BLM rescue and when Bart was at my grandparents house I would also mess around with radar. I had him to the point where he would walk when I asked him from the ground and on his back. He is scared of saddles and such so I will work on that and a lot more. I'll think of him as my newest project since Dozer is pretty well trained now. Yea dozer still needs more training but Radar wont be here forever and Dozer will =). So tomorrow I start with Radar's training. I am going to get him use to a halter and brushes. I will most likely sit on him but Im not sure. I am also going to ride Dozer because I havent ridden him in like the past four or five days due to the fire and today there was rain. The weather is just against me layely...

September 3 2009- So we moved the Donkey into our arena because the vet came out for Bart and we wanted him to have as much room as he needed. Well the vet took some xrays and should be getting back to us any day now... Really annoyed with this donkey because he is taking up the arena so Dozer is stuck in his stall and there is only two days before Dozer's 3rd gymkhana!

September 4 2009- I HATE MY TRAINER! She is always yelling out different things! First its, Megan bump, then its, Megan why are you bumping? Ugh it gets so annoying so fast! Radar(the donkey) wasnt helping me relax because like half an hour before the lesson we had to get him out of the arena and we tried to get him in a stall but he wouldnt do anything! So we just let him wander around the backyard... Oh! Another annoying thing is my trainer brought her stupid grandson to my house for my lesson and the entire time he was chasing our chickens and screaming and throwing things and it was so distracting! But on the bright side.. WE GOT A TRAILER!!!!

September 5 2009- Went to gymkhana in our new trailer! YAY! Dozer just hung out, I wanted to ride him in the third event but one of my friends wanted me to do knockdowns and I needed hours so I signed up with her and of course she ditched me like halfway through to go get her horse and when I got up to get mine the judge wouldnt let me because there has to be someone for knockdowns.. UGH! After I did knockdowns I cooled off then went on Dozer. We were walking, troting and even cantering in the warmup arena. I did that event with him and of course the dumbass judge had someone put up her big, bright, and scary umbrella up during our event! They put it up when we were headed towards the back of the arena for the last barrel. Of course they put it up at the back of the arena and decided it wouldnt scare my hhorse. I had to yell at the guy like seven times to put the umbrella away and when he finally did Dozer was already super scared. He was so worried about it he stopped dead in his tracks. I felt so bad for poor Dozer and so mad at that stupid guy. Then My dad decided to piss me off by saying I couldn't ride in the next event because he was tired and wanted to go home. This is like the only thing I ever ask him to do! Take me to and from one gymkhana a month! He annoys me greatly too.
Sorry for the novel. I just had to vent...
