Question How do I start a journal?

I am wanting to start a journal about my experience with my colt. How do I start one, for example is there a place to write your journals. This is all new to me...

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and freedom.

If you scroll down from the forum page that shows all of the different sections there is a forum titled Member Journals. Sorry I am on my phone and can't copy paste or I would give you the link. Start the journal the same way you start a thread. Looking forward to reading about your journey with your handsome boy.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

I know that you mean how to post a journal on the forum but, I have a spiral notebook that I have chronicled every thing I have done with my filly. I have the date, saddle or not, halter or bridle, whether ridden or not, things worked on, time worked , attitude and ride number. I can look back anytime and see when I introduced her to various moves and reactions. I also have growth ( weight and height) and all medical ( wormings, shots, injections, teeth floatings ect.) included in it. No relying on my memory this way.

I've always found that notebook and a pen or pencil work great. And you can have with you when you're out with the horse.

They're always going to be bigger and stronger so you better always be smarter. (One of my grandfather's many pearls of wisdom)

I have started one for his weight, height and medical information. I also have it written down his feed chart and exercise regiment. I also have that in a spiral notebook with the information of my other horses.

Since this is my last colt that I will probably raise and train, I wanted one to keep about my thoughts and feelings as we go through the process. One that is more for fun for me to read when he is around 10 years old and setting around the camp fire and saying I remember when Lakota did...


I like the idea to add in my composition book his attitude as I start the training process. I haven't included that before.

Thanks,

Another question, I am wanting to use this to share my feelings and concerns daily. How do I keep adding to the journal?

You just post a reply to your journal, just like you would on any other thread.
