Okay so I'm going to start a journal about the life of me and my horses. First of all, my name is Hannah and I currently have one horse. I say currently because I am getting my second horse within the next week. I am getting a 17 year old mare from my friend. She can no longer afford to take care of her, so I am going to purchase her. I couldn't stand to see this mare go to the sale barn and be sold to possibly a bad place. This horse's name is Poke and she is just a doll.
Before I go to far, let me introduce my first horse. Her name is Magic and she is a four year old Quarter horse. She loves attention and is a very friendly horse. She will come right up to the gate and great anyone. The only problem with her is that she is very stubborn when it comes time to work. She doesn't like to work and is a bit lazy. I am working with her to gain her respect on the ground before I start riding her. She has been ridden before, by her previous owner and by me. She has only been to the trainer once so she is by no means broken. So I am starting with the groundwork and will eventually work my way up. Here's a picture of Magic standing in the pasture.
Like I was explaining before, I am getting an older horse soon. I think this will be good for Magic. Magic is in the pasture by herself so a friend will keep her company. Hopefully they get along and can be together. Plus, with an older horse I can have Magic around while I work and ride her. I think it's good for a green horse to watch experienced horses being ridden and worked with.
So that's it for now. I will be updating everything that's going on and posting pictures too. Hope you enjoy my new journal!
