Alwaysbehind, I'm planning on double Majoring in Agribusiness management and Equine Sciences at a two year school and then finishing at a four year school to get a major in Agribusiness. I'm not just going for an equine degree. But my parents still hate the idea

Sorry everybody! Continue with the happy posts. Please excuse my rambling...I really am excited for you brighteyes!!! Congratulations!!!

Ah, that's so exciting! I'll tell you congrats once you find out for sure ;)
I know how happy you are, I just got my first horse 9 months ago. I had been wishing and hoping for one since I was really young. Mine wasn't a surprise like yours is, my parents just randomly told me that I could start looking, haha! But horse ownership is one of the most rewarding things I've ever gotten the privlege to experience (((:

I'm definitely looking forwards to horse ownership. An excuse to hang around the barn, a reason to buy cute saddlepads/halters/blankets, an outlet for my hyperactive self, a horse that I can train my way and who won't get ruined on a daily basis by students, and the pride of saying, "Yeah. I own a horse." Also, my own competition partner (no more stealing the BO's mare!), friend, and pet project.

Posted at midnight, the 24th of December. One more day!

I will once again state that it would really suck if I get all hyped up and get no horse. I'm 95 percent sure, but... It's too good to be true!

Yes don't get your hopes up TOO HIGH. Though it does sound VERY promising. Last year I peeked and found a saddle and I thought for sure I was getting a horse!! I was super dissapointed, though. I ran outside cause I thought maybe he'd be waiting for me tied up to a tree or something and my parents were like "What are you doing out here, its freezing!" No horse for me. :'( And I know I didn't get one this year :/ Ohh well. I hope you get your horse!!

Yah I was 17 pr 18 when I got my own horse without my mommy's help. She hates horses. I was working at a farm and the owner gave the horse to me and I had to work sooo hard just to have a horse. Sometimes I wish I had parents that would buy me horses and stuff for them...but i don't.

I got Baby Girl.

Today, I went out there with my cousin. I was going to let him ride a horse, and my BO suggested I use Baby Girl. So I put him on her and everything was going GREAT. We were in a round pen and I had him walk and gait her. Well... He suddenly fell off and took the saddle with him. He fell and landed in the sand, fine. But Baby Girl had the saddle between her legs and started running around the pen, scared out of her mind. I stood calmly in the center (I wasn't actually calm, I can assure you), talking to her.

The BO rushed over to help. Baby Girl saw her and crashed into the gate, somehow breaking the lock and getting it opened. Not wanting her to get away, I longed at her and grabbed a rein.

More dear had three out of four legs scraped up. Not badly, but enough to make her unrideable for a day or two. I took her over to the wash rack and ran cold water over the legs.

I was traumatized. It was mine fault for not checking the girth and now she was hurt... I thought her owner was going to MURDER me. The BO assured me it was okay... She was fine. Just a little beat up and scared.

So, I leave the barn after treating her and go to my grandparents to eat Christmas Eve dinner. Then I get a call about sundown. My dad called and said the BO wanted me to go to the barn right away. I was freaked. I thought she had died or something... Maybe that apple I gave her before I left chocked her...

Then I arrive to find her in her stall. Red ribbons were tied to the bars and all the lights were on. I was confused at first, then my parents stepped out of the tack room and pointed to towards a little gift bag.

I opened it up and inside were halter tags that read,

Baby Girl
Owner: Jackie M.

And than I realized she was mine. I was so happy I started crying.

Best. Christmas. EVER.
