**Ozzy Pictures, Foal pics, & I'm HORSE-less**
 
Hi, you guys!
I have some horse news. :D
Well, I sold Lexi...it took a long time for me to come to the decision, as it was a hard one. But I did it for the best (for me anyway). The reason why is because I need a horse that is more advanced in English riding (as I am getting very advanced with my jumping now), & Lexi was more of a Western-type horse (she was never ridden English before until I started jumping) She loved barrels & did great at them, but yet she did not do well at jumping. It kinda slowed me down. She's not a good jumper. Some horses just aren't. It was a good decision. A girl at my barn has her now (who does barrels, PERFECT match for her), I'm SO glad she can control Lexi too...that made it hard for me too, since Lexi can be tough. & they're getting along great. I'm sure Lexi's happy being ridden Western again, LOL! :D

ALSO, I still see Lexi & ride her sometimes, so it's not that bad.

I'm horse-less right now. :( But I've been riding Ozzy, this teenage Thoroughbred, & I've fallen in love. He's an awesome jumper (was a showjumper), & doesn't spook or anything. He's amazing! I love him. :) & I've also been riding a nice chesnut at my barn too, AJ.
Plus, there's a new filly at my barn, she's so adorable. Loves getting petted!

Pictures of Ozzy-poo! :D
Hehe, in the pictures when he was sticking his tongue out, I had just given him some apple slices...he loves them! ;)

^Me riding IGNORE my EQ lol. I'm aware that he is a bit on the chubby side for a TB, but with some more working & riding I can get him in better shape. :) He's a great horse, just has a big barrel.

& the new foal @ the barn; her name is Fire! :D Her Mom's name is Polly, she's gorgeous!
She's about 5-6wks old I think, growing all the time!!

I didn't know you were even thinking about selling Lexi. She was pretty! Glad she found a good match too, and you know she'll be taken care of.

So is there a chance you'll buy ozzy or what? He's pretty amazing I have to admit.

Yeah, I'm sorry, I didn't really get around to mentioning it. :roll: I know, now she can do what she loves to do...& I know she'll win lots of ribbons!! :D It's just better for the both of us.

Ugh, I told somebody else (like one of my non-horsey friends), & she totally lashed out at me & told me I THREW Lexi away. :( It's totally not the case. Grr...non-horsey people just don't get it. I love Lexi a lot still.

Anyway, hehe I know he's soo cute! I don't know if I will buy him, I'll have to speak to the BO to see if he's even available LOL! You never know, a lot of people like him! :)

Geeze I hate it when people who know nothing about horses try to tell you something. You did what was best for Lexi and you know that.

Ozzy is a cutie! He is a bit chubby, but better chubby than skinny! He is such a cutie! I hope you'll be able to buy him.

Ugh, I know!! :evil: Like, she bashed me!

LOL yeah...he could lose a few, but hey he's not TOO bad, he used to be a bit chubbier. :D Soo he's doing well.
Thanks!
