    SHA! Lets do this! - Members Journal-

    This will be more of a motivational journal- So I can quit lazing around- And get my kids into shape-

    The first out-of-shape ponehhh is Bee (age:9). He is a NSH who I've had for 3ish years. We are just finally clicking and working out our miscomunitcations. And he will be the largest part of this journal---

    Next chunker is our TWH: Shamus- He's not truely fat just way out of shape- He's been a family horse all his life we've owned him since he was a yearling- He's 15 now and acts 25! Shamus is pretty much push button- meaning he will do everything with only a thought- BUT he's sooo lazy! Probably won't hear much about him-

    Last is our TWH yearling: Fred- He's a sweet baby and has been under saddle a handful of times- A complete Peach! Right now Im working on getting him mildly/hopefully completely broke so we can sell him =( Hay Prices are unbeleivable!

    Now for a today entree- Bee and I ran into a training flaw again--- Bee is a saddleseat horse and I like him that way, but the poor thing was rushed trough his training and has holes every where; of which, I've worked through. Today's catastrophic event was trying to canter off the rail *on the correct lead! Gasp! How could I ever ask him to canter off a rail and expect him to be on the correct lead! Ha- It got to the point where He was blowing up- So we trotted hardcore and let is be done for the day- Im having guidence come watch me and critique me- So maybe I'll find his/my problem on asking cues tomorrow-

    It turns out that Im asking correctly and Bee is actually on the correct leads *FacePalm- Apperently I need to relearn how to recognize leads. But we are on canter overload- Today when asking for our warm up trot he cantered instead. Ugh if its not one thing its another- We worked through it though and we're right as rain
    This coming Weeks Goal: Polish "Off-Rail" work. Begin simple Lead changes

    Shamus is solid as ever Goal: Refresh "Gate" work

    Baby's goal Look cute and maybe a couple of rides And correction from last ime he's actually 2 and a half I just think of him as a yearling-

    Fred had his second ride tonight! We trailered over to our local public areana- to expose him to different things and such. NEVER even offered a sideways glance- Completly trusted me! Im just I complete amazment right now- I knew he was a calm baby but the first ride was in the comforts of our pasture with his mates- Not to mention this was Fred;s second time off the farm since we got him. This youngen is going to make somebody a great horse someday-

    Bee- now is running through his bit- I believe its because he is sore. We have been practicing every day for about 2hrs. Tomorrow is his day off, maybe even friday- Seeing as though I may have to show him on Saturday. Which I should be more excited about but I would have to show him in an equ class as a hunter rotflmao--- Of which Bee is never going to be O.o
    I have also tried a new pehelm- this one has a slow port compared to the huge straight bar from before- Bee seemed indifferent- I didnt like it. With pehlems I can't feel the horse right- So useing the double for now.
