Not that anyone's listening...Rainy+horseluver2435
Dear e-diary, plus whoever the heck else wants to read,
Had a great ride with Rainy today. Rode in the outdoor and did okay after a nice long warm up. Bucked (or kicked? couldn't really tell) while cantering, but finally got her to do about a half a round collected. It was fun, and we both enjoyed our cool-down on trails. Even if I got a little muddy. ;] Older sis wasn't too pleased to have it in her car though! Haha.

In other news, I still don't know if we're buying Rainy. I hope so with all my might. I just don't know what I'll do if we don't. I won't be able to stand seeing her go to someone else, all my hard work wasted. And then I'll be stuck doing it all over again, no doubt! I really don't want to re-work ANOTHER horse for show team! =P Let's see, by now I've:
-Encouraged boring Boomer to trot at a semi-fast (for him) pace
-Gotten Pepper to canter correctly (after ONE ride)
-And completely re-trained and turned around my little bay monster named Rainy

I'm not starting over AGAIN. Not after all the work I've put in with her! Ugh! Well, I'll find out what's going to happen soon, my birthday (celebration, at least) is this weekend. We'll see what happens...

Meanwhile, I'm still pondering what breeds Rainy has in her. We know for sure Quarter Horse (duh!) and throughbred, because Hayley (her mom) was an Appendix. But ivorygold1195 (she's my friend who goes to the same barn) thinks she has Morgan in her too. From what I've heard about Morgans' attitudes, that doesn't surprise me. I wish there was a way to know for sure...=P

Anyway, suspense will haunt me for a few more days...

Dear e-diary (+ whoever else),
Hot as heck today, and I worried about her getting enough water. At our last show, we stayed the night, and Rainy ended up drinking 6 or 7 buckets of water throughout the night and through the next day. Luckily the mares have two tanks for water, but i don't know if she'll be able to get what she needs. On the plus side, only 5 days left until I find out if she'll be mine!

Good luck horseluver, I hope you get rainy, it sounds like you really love him. There should be a way to do a DNA test on horses if you really want to know what all he has in him. I seen them do it on dogs on some tv show once so I don't know why they couldnt!

horseluver2435 06-23-2009 04:22 PM

thanks. =] I really hope Rainy and I end up together too! She's like my horsie soul mate!

You need to buy Rainy! You two are perfect for each other!
btw, I'll read your journal if you read mine! xD Though.. I'll probably read yours anyways.. xD Keep us updated on her progress, alright? (:

horseluver2435 06-23-2009 10:02 PM

Sounds good. Probably won't be riding tomorrow since it's supposed to be in the 90's (again!) We do have a lesson on Thursday though, so I'll write something then. How's that sound? I'll totally read yours, I'm headed there now.

Dear whoever's listening in,
Another super hot day, so no riding. Of course! Good news though. My mom (who's allergic to hay and horses) is going to an allergist, so in a few months (after going through allergy shots :( and other treatments) she'll be able to go on a trail ride with me and Rainy! Awesome! Hopefully this also is a big hint that Rainy will be ours! Since in a few months, (if we didn't buy her) she'd be someone else's.

Anyway, still sweating it out and waiting for lessons tomorrow morning. Bright and early, since they start at 10 o'clock AM. Which means I'll probably be up at 9. =P Oh well, as long as I get to ride! Haha, I'll do anything to go to horseback riding.

Dear whoever's listening,
Great ride today! When we first got there, we reviewed safety knots (fun, but I'm kinda bad at it). Then we had a cool demo on lunging. =] We got to ride bareback, which was fun, but I'm really going to be feeling it tomorrow. Actually, I think I can feel it now! Rainy did very good, I think it's the slowest we've ever trotted. Haha. But it really was good. We 'cooled down' (I don't think we ever actually cool down in summer-it's WAY too hot here) on trails, which was really nice too. xoSonnylove123 and I are riding buddies-her horse Sonny loves Rainy. On trails Sonny kept trying to trot to catch up with Rainy since her walk is so much faster then his-it was adorable! :) Anyway, we finished up with a hose down and some fresh water, then the humans got to swim in the pool! Today was great, and I really hope tomorrow is just as good!

Dear fans of us (haha, not really),
Yesterday was like the best day of my life! So, we (me+non-horsey friend[who came to watch us ride]) headed to the barn for a free ride. (totally fun, by the way). We walked up to the main barn to see who was there, and suddenly I heard a voice call my name. (Yes, God? I thought secretly) I turned and saw, by Rainy's stall, balloons and streamers. No, I thought, no way! I ran towards them (a no-no in barns, but no horses were in there, so it's ok) and they all yelled 'Surprise!' It was all my friends from horses, plus my instructors, plus....
You are now talking to a horseowner!
I gave everyone hugs and ohmygosh, she looked so cute! They had spent all this time cleaning her off and putting red, white and blue ribbons in her mane and tail (since my birthday is on the 4th of July [and Rainy's is too now, since we don't know when it really is]) I was-no, I am! so excited! We had the best ride, goofing off and switching horses and finishing it with a great bareback trail ride! =] I also got $70 from my friends to spend at the Wire Horse, a tack shop in town! Best friends in the world!!!!! I can't wait for tomorrow, to find out what tack I'll get, and what tack I'll get to shop for! ;) Everyone loves shopping for horse stuff! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEE
eeee! I am so excited!!!! As soon as I can get pics off the camera, I'll post them up here! YAY!!!!! I AM SO GEEKED THAT I'M USING WORDS LIKE 'GEEKED'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!
<3 horseluver2435 and....RAINY!!!!<3
