As always I love to read about your shows and see the pictures. Loved Diego in costume and the filly, so cute!!
Lol! The poop incident
I hope that you are fully healed by now and that Promise is doing just fine at the new barn.
I am very sorry for your loss *hugs*
I really enjoy reading about your herd's dynamics. Seems you had lots of fun at the wedding
So... I thought you only had 2 horses? How lost am I? The description you made of the drunk buying was priceless! Cute girls
Hi! Sonny is looking great!
I hope that you can overcome the issues you are having with your horse. Me, the less I ride, the more nervous I get.
And don't beat yourself for what hapenned. Accidents will happen anytime, sometimes even if we take all cautions. Once a barn kitty followed me to the arena and got stepped on his leg by my mare. I was livid! I had to push her out of his way and she took a while to move her leg. Kitty was bleeding and took off to the barn, to hide, as they do when they are hurt. He was not mine and I felt so bad. But he made a full recovery, and so will your dog
@blue eyed pony
I wish all goes according to planned. Just ignore his mother, nothing good will come from there for you both. Aww so sweet, he has your dog's approval
I think I forgot someone, and replies were small, sorry but work gets in the way
I had a good time at the barn on Saturday. Pilgrims didn't go this weekend, so I just stayed watching BO train / retrain 3 horses to drive, and then get his horses ready for an event on Sunday. His daughter didn't ride and was busy, which was a bummer, because as you remember, the more time I spend without riding, the more nervous I get, and I prefer to have another rider for company, or someone watching me for a while.
I still went to pick Tuya, that was still with her babies, and she came fine. She now gives me both her hooves, which is fantastic!! Just to access her reaction, I brought the saddle and she was perfect. The girth, oh my... She is huge, lol!
At the lunge line she was good, one off stride here and there, but very good. That's when I stopped her that I had and impulse: to climb on. I had no helmet, the saddle didn't have the protection for her back, just the pad, I was holding the lunge line in one hand, and no one was around. But I did it! I got on and she didn't even flinch!! Of course that at some point she started to walk on, because that's what she does usually, so I just stopped her and got off. I didn't want to hurt her in her back or so. I was so happy!! Small step and irrelevant for most people, huge to fearful me
The only thing I regret? To not have her fully briddled / saddled, and I would have continued for a little while. I gave her back to her babies instead. They are the sweetest thing together.
The cremello is doing so much better! And I saw him teeth clacking (?) to a mare, so cute!!
Pictures will follow, have a great Monday!
