This journal will consist of anything relating to my horses. (Neigh Streak Flint & Lady)
To kick it off i will start with today (June 25, 2011):
It has been absolutly beautiful out, so I decided to give Neighners a bath. All went well untill the annoying neighbor girl came to "help" Not wanting to be mean I said she could help, naturally, she emptied my fly spray....
Luckily she had to go home before she wrecked anything else. After finishing I went to turn Neigh out. So ofcourse he rolled in mud! He also showed his undieing love for me. When leaving the pasture after feeding he followed me to the gate; when I left he was neighing is head off, untill I came back to tell him "Good Night"
Flint is the newest "Family Member" He is a TWH yearling carmellow and looks just like Streak. His past: never ever been handled or looked at. Left in a pasture to die with another mare. The good news is he is SUPER GAITED & SMART! We have been working with him for 3 days now and he has completed John Lyons Round Pen Training achieving Join Up, picks up all four feet,and let me put and saddle and pad on (not cinched). I'm super happy with him. He will hopefully be ready to show by the time I need to retire Neigh.
Things I'm looking forward to:
-July 16- 4-H horse and Pony Club Completion Show
-Sept. 26-Oct 1- DeKalb Co. Free Fall Fair
*Cantering off the rail- refuses to canter off a rail. SUPER ANNOYING. Will canter in a feild but wont due it on intended lead.
*trotting in hand- for halter ect. He refuses to trot with me. Having a tailer is super embarrising...
*Jumping some pretty tiny jumps (ground poles for now) LOL
*Trail Work- for trail classes
