new chapter
well it is a new chapter in my life, as I am not living with the people who had horses now,

so now that I am horseless, which doesn't worry me as I can afford lessons again, I am joining a riding lesson school, which cost $55 for 45 minutes, which is expencive and hopefully worth it, I have my first lesson on Thursday 11.30am YAY!

thankyou, im soooooo excited! next loads of questions id have is how long will it take for hi to settle in, i wont be riding him as he will be very fresh, since he probably hasnt been touched in almost 2 weeks, and wait to he settles down and just do ground work, with someone helping me this time

Remind me- how long have your been riding Miover? I rode my guy the day after he arrived at the barn I have him at. For my guy, since I had been riding him at his old place, it actually helped settle him in as it was part of his 'normal' routine for me to groom, tack him up and ride. Even though he was at a strange new place, me sticking to the routine we already had was relaxing and helpful for him. My guy is also a follower type horse, so having someone he trusted (me) tell him what to do allowed him to relax and just follow the leader for a while rather than having to be hypervigilant and worry about all the new, scary things.

If you'll have help, definitely chat with them about the best way to settle Miover in- what works for one horse doesn't always work for another. Some horses do need time to quietly settle, others are best put to work right away- just depends on the individual horse and humans involved. :)

So, uh, when might we get some pictures? ;)

miover is in his new i am concerned he is dropping weight..thankfully he will out of quarintine sometime next week, farriar is comming next week.

he will be sharing a paddock with 1 other horse which may help him to stop cribbing!!!

i want him on 24/7 hay my only concern is i dont want the other horse eating his supply since its at my cost,

i dont know if im just worrying for nothing. i dont even know if i should get him a cribbing collor as he is eating the wood aswel
