I'm mulling over moving back to the old place and just paying for a private field cause im being kicked out of the temporary location. I've gone and seen a lot of farms and none rose to my expectations. Some are too far away, some have no paddock shelter or barn, some wont feed my horse, I think I might just have to suck it up, get a 2nd and 3rd job and move back to the old place. Pretty bummed out tbh. I did miss the old barn owner though. maybe she sold Milo >

Well I found a place that I like, Its close and has a sand ring and trails. I'm going out to see it tomorrow. Olivers manners have become sketchy again as I havnt been able to work him as of the daylight hours getting shorter. I'll have to work on those.

I went on a spectacular trail ride today, it was a huge opportunity for some training aswell! We practiced some leg yieldings, neck reining, and standing the frick still when I'm trying to mount! xD It was very fun, and I think Oliver had fun too :) Then I went and met the resident stallion, and he's gorgeous! Flashy blue roan (my absolute favourite colour) Foundation and barrel bred stallion. So calm and great confo too! I wanna look into breeding when I get my mare next year, and he may be a potential Baby Daddy I also spent 45 minutes poking around in the dark the other night, and I thought Oliver had jumped the paddock fence and was gone, but turns out he was just up in an area that I didn't know was available for him to go into -_- Oh well, all that matters is that he didn't get horse napped or run away :)

Well this barn that I'm at is pretty alright, they're very generous with the hay. I have a few grievances with them, but that's to be expected. Oliver is doing pretty well. He looks so dark since he's shed out into his winter woollies. Now a bit of a picture binge for you all :) *** Also, colour gurus, do you say he's bay or brown?***

Well this last little while has been intense. Scratches, rain rot, behavioral problems towards other people, it has been crazy.

Oliver has relapsed with Scratches, he has it on all four feet, and its really a pain in both of our butts. He has been getting soaked with warm water and MTG, I will need a new bottle soon.
Oliver has also began to become iffy towards people other than me, he is fine with my mum and sister, but he lays his ears back at the barn personnel. I reprimand him when he does, because I don't want him to become aggressive.
But on the more positive side of things, I'm going to all of my holiday baking today and tomorrow. Hope you guys all have Happy winter holidays!

Well, bad news. The saddle that I got for xmas has a broken tree. And I can't get another one. Oliver's scratches are gone at least.

I'm sorry to hear about your saddle. You can always see if you can barrow one or at least keep trying saddles out to know what fits him best. Maybe out out a post at your barn asking what they would have to barrow...I'm sure you wont be saddles for long. I had to barrow a few over the course of two years until I had saved 900 for a used dressage saddle that I love and it fits very well. Its hard waiting and sometimes we cant get all that needs to be done done but your trying and that's all that matters

His scratches are gone! YAY!!!! That's great! You should post some pictures of the handsome boy!!!

I'll see if I can use the barn owners old western saddle that I used for a ride. It did fit us both pretty well.

And also, I did make a thread about this, but in case you haven't heard, I roached his mane.
