Anita Ann - I hope your boy quits kicking himself!! My former horse Red used to do that!!!
Those little goats are DARLING! I love pygmy goats.
On another note...my former horse Red is coming home. The little girl that has him at this moment wants to move up in dressage so I am going to get him next Sunday. I gave him to them as long as they wanted but to not ever sale or rehome. She honored that and called me. I can't wait to see him. I love that big red horse. My hubby's godchild (his best friend since kindergarden's child) was wanting a horse for her 13 year old that is doing ACTHA. They were working on raising their income so she could have a horse. I offered Red. I told her all of his issues and all of his good points. They are taking Red and he will be right up in the area of Ebenezer where we ride all the time! He is going to a really nice barn and will be near his other former owner that I bought him from. Alex knows how to ride and works at the stable. She has been entering ACTHA rides on one of the barns horses. So my big boy is coming full circle and going back to the country where I bought him from!
Thanks Denise! I hope he quits kicking himself too! I am guessing he is doing the same thing out in the pasture, so why he is not progressing as much as I'd like. Before he went down in that hole, he was doing really well and getting much quicker off the leg. Maybe he has to wear boots all the time when outside? I don't know if I should try, too chancy when I am not there.
So pleased your horse Red is returning!!! Be sure to post some pictures
I used to turn Red out in rubber bell boots. I rode him in bell boots. It helped tremendously. I still have Red's bell boots so I am going to take them to Alex with him. Her grandmother is going to be helping pay for Red. They lived across the street from us for years. LOL When we looked at the house I asked Barry how he felt about living across from his BFF and he was fine with it. Barry doesn't have brothers and Terry (BFF) and his brothers Chris and Stacy are like brothers to him. Barry lived with Chris when I met him. So I feel pretty good about my boy going there. I know exactly how they treat their pets - pretty dang good!!
Hopefully if everything goes to plan our steer is supposed to be getting knocked off this friday. So the horses aren't at home my neighbour is going to go for a ride with me, that way both the boys can go. I'm so excited, I havent taken them both out together in ages.
I hope you all have good rides this weekend, I have to work all weekend, so no riding for me....good news though, deer hunting season is officially over, so next weekend I can hit the trails again!!!! Yipee!! I can't wait to tackle that yellow trail again:)
Hello, hello, hello!
I am fashionably late, but better late then never, right?
I have a soon-to-be five-year-old Thoroughbred mare who was supposed to be my eventing horse. However, it seems the older I get the less I feel like showing and the more I want to trail ride. LOL.
My mare seems to be telling me that she wants to be an endurance horse (or maybe I whisper that in her ear while she sleeps?) so we are starting to condition for some LDs, hopefully this year. Not only do I not have a trailer, but to add to it my car broke down yesterday morning. Le sigh.
So, I have been TRYING to track our miles this year and now I will do it more consistenly. There are only about two trail routes I can take, which sucks, but we make do. So, from memory, here are this year's miles - a very big guestimate using Google Earth and trying to remember how many times I have been out. I'm cutting myself short, but rather that than over-guess.
