LOL, thanks. Funny thing is, we arent very "close." Like we talk and such, but never hang out or anything. I just know she is working her butt off to pay for Bear and Junior. But thank you again. :)

Well as a Mom it sounds pretty cool to hear a kid ( I know your not really a kid) praising their mom. Most kids just take advantage of them. I really hope my kids appreciate me as much as you appreciate yoiur mom!

LOL, I was told over and over again by my old "best friend" that I dont realize how lucky I am and that I dont appreciate my mom, so I learned quick. :p

But back on topic!

I turned Junior out with Bear today, they have been walking around having fun in the cold rain for the last few hours and just now went in to eat their hay (even though I fed them right after I turned Junior out with Bear).

Quick little update. My sister and neice are coming out sometime to meet Junior and when he is rideable again my little neice [she is four] is going to start learning how to ride on him. So I will be posing pictures of that next month sometime as well. My sister, who has never been around horses really, wants to learn to ride too so I might give her some lessons as well. Plus eventerwannabe has two little girls on her side that want to learn to ride as well, he is gonna be quite the little lesson horse when he is all better but it will be good for him.

Austin [my sister] and Aryah [her daughter] came out and met Junior. They liked him and are excited to start riding him in April :] I can't wait! He is looking better already and was even galloping and bucking around the field with Bear today.

UPDATE:

Talked to eventerwannabe today, she had her farrier out to do Bear and Junior and we found out that what ever [insert any bad name here] farrier trimmed and shoed Junior last did a really horrid job. I mean we could tell that just by looking but we found out that his back hooves were angled so wrong that it cause the angle of his coffin bone to be off meaning we can't lead him or anything at more than a walk. The farrier that was out today couldn't fix it this time because there wasn't enough hoof there to trim off to make the correct angle so when he comes out next and trims Junior again we might be able to work Junior at a trot. Stupid lady that had him probably payed some back country cowboy to come out and do a 5 dollar trim and shoe job. *sighs and shakes head*
