I made a mistake xD
I had not been riding in about 2 months then I went and did hard work/riding for 2 days in a row from like 7 to 11. I mean extreme barn makeover and schooling bratty ponies hard work. Now I cant move haha. The horse I was working with, Gunner, is an adorable dun qh. A really nice trained cow horse. Except that he had not been really ridden by anyone except for beginners in a while. So I was doing circles at the w/t/c for about an hour because he was really hot. Also his trot is extremely bumpy and his transitions are really bad. I almost fell off twice (gotta love manes) and he did some crow hopping. We also did a ton af backing because apperently "whoa" means stop and then take two more steps.
So yea I cant really move right now
Nope, Tilly isn't a mini :) she's a little over 40 pounds (girl aussies only weigh 40-50 pounds they're a lot smaller) but I think she's mixed with border collie and that gives her that really slender look haha. Mini's look more like tiny dogs (I think they only weigh 20 tops, but daang they're adorable!) Normal weight for a male Aussie is around 50-60 pounds so if he gets bigger than that he's probably a mix. Post pictures!!! You'll find out why Aussies are my favorite dog breed :) (excluding the mutt's that are awesome too). He'll probably not be as outgoing as Tilly- most Aussies aren't and are weary of strangers, which isn't bad at all! Oh you'll have so much fun! They're naturals at agility, so I really recommend that, it's so much fun! Okay I'll quit rambling but I'm happy for you!
We got a puppy! An Australian shepherd. He is about 3-4 months old. We got him today at a rescue. He is red and white and so cute! Just the sweetest thing. He is really shy. Wrigley likes him, and normally she hares other dogs but she sniffed him then sat by him. He is super cuddly and should probably be huge! His paws are really big. Was Tilly a mini aussies? He is probably the same size as she is now.
It was a curb, and no not made out of gold lol. I wish I remembered who made it... but I can't. They use very nice materials to make the bits and balance them very well. They even had some bits in the thousands but those were CRAZY nice bits... wish I knew more about them though.
Thanks! Actually neither... I'm doing an Equine Business degree this next year (so it's applicable in more spaces) and then I'll be doing a equine training program where they gave you a 2 year old never touched horse and give you a year or two to train the horse to ride and show.
