It all started with the loss of my amazing thoroughbred angel-soldier:[. I was searching for a horse to train over the summer to compete with in gymkhana about to give up i found Fury(then named jessica)and 11yr old grey arabian mare for free because her old owners abandoned her at the boarding facility a year and a half ago and the facility could no longer afford to pay for her. I immediately called and made an appointment to go see her. I was the first one to come out!! When i walked up she looked up and met my eyes and i immediately fell in love. I asked if i could try her out and they said sure. So i brought her out brushed her down and saddle her up, with a few disagreements at the hitching post i got her tacked up. She immediately got that prancy happy arab attitude (i think she was happy to work again) and i brought her to the round pen(the saddle was to big for me and i figured the round pen would be best to try her in) i checked her cinch again and then proceeded to mount(she stood completely still not even a little flinch!i pet her and then told her to walk on..she acted like a horse who hadn't missed a day out of work. She has trouble picking up her left lead though. So after about 30 mins of walk,trot,canter,stop,back both ways i decided i was completely and uterly in love with this horse . I brought her back to the hithing post untcked her and gave her a nice cool bath to get that dirt and grime off her. My dad signed the papers to keep her there till we could get her here and now by next weekend i will have my new mare.

Thursday is our hopefully day to get her here so yay just 3 1/2 more days till i hopefully have my girl here
fingers crossed that my dad can get fury here tomorrow and everything works out how its planned :-]
looking at buying some new reins and boots for her soon
Today is the day fury arrived! she is in major need of a full blown bath and feet trim but is still the mare i fell in love with.
went out and worked fury in the round pen did some w/t/c/h/reverse drills and some work with the scary plastic bag! haha she was very mad at me for that. I then saddled her up and did some under saddle work. She needs work with her woah but is doing good for only her second day here. I found out she will stand perfectly still to be saddled without being tied! surprised the heck outta me haha. washed her bed sores and put some ointment on them and then took her to eat some weeds and take pictures :]
Worked her again today brought out the scary tarp she trotted on it 2 times and smelled it and checked it out a couple others so i stopped on a good note. I saddled her up and worked her some more under saddle and discovered she has some AMAZING turns. She can really get up under herself. Took her out for a trail ride and found a small log and decided to start her hurry scurry work weelllls she LOVES jumping she got super happy ears forward and everything. This girl really loves to work. Brought her home cleaned off her bed sores again put more ointment on them and put her up.
pictures from her first day here and one of today
i braided her tail and mane as it is windy here and i didnt want it getting giant knots before i get a chance to fully bathe her haha and thats her fly mask i was just making sure it fit
