Thank you, I will definitely look into those blogs!
I honestly have no idea what kind of trails are around here! Mostly I just walk the dirt road around the property. I do know that we are only about 10 miles or so from the state park national trail system though.
So I woke up this morning to what seemed like a dream. The pastures were all misty, so much so that even 20 feet from my porch I could barely make out the horses shapes! But oh could I hear them! Prancing and cantering and neighing for their breakfast. I felt like I should have been transport back to the land of Tir Na Nog, lol. It has since changed into just some grey drizzly gloom. Yuck!
I seem to be having a difficult time today hallucinating. It's a normal thing for me as a side effect from a medication I'm on. The problem is, it makes me see bugs. Everywhere. I didn't know I was hallucinating at first, so I smacked a bug off of my dog! He turned and gave me this look like "what the hell Mom?!" I guess I'll let him take care of his own bugs from now on.
I know I need to work my way into finding a trainer. Eventually. Lessons. Ok yeah eventually. For the time being though I cannot seem to stop myself from window shopping!! I know how to feed a horse, brush a horse, wrap legs, blanket etc, basic care I understand. I'm not even sure I'm all that keen to BE a rider if it takes soooooo much people interaction to be honest. I just would love to be able to have the ability to be around another horse. Ownership is a ways off, but I think I keep trying to convince myself to make it happen sooner.
So lets see, what is it I'm looking for. I'm rather short, about 5'4” so I would like to find something around 15 hands. I'm on the fence with gelding or mare, so kinda keeping that option open. I want a horse with really good feet, like dinner plate and solid iron haha! Other than that, solid solid temperament. A horse that likes people or would get used to having a person be around. An in your pocket type, but without being disrespectful. As far as breed, I'm not very picky! I'd choose temperament over breed any day.
I'm not really sure if there is anything else I should be looking into??
