What about Nevaeh - Heaven backwards..seeing as she is perfect and you found each other more or less :)

For a show name you could do Nevaeh _______
I LOVE THAT!! We'll see. I need her papers so I can remember her parents names. I am also thinking about looking up other names meaning "divinely strong." Considering that is so far the ONLY meaning anyone's been able to find. And I love the meaning. Hate the name though.

I tried to Google what Oscita means with no luck... does anyone know?
Osito is teddy bear/little bear in Spanish. Osita would be female little bear. No idea if it's meant to be related to Oscita.

Anyways, congrats on your new mare. I like her new name :)

I took Sadie out and longed her a little today and we did some ground work. She was SO good. I couldn't be happier about my decision to bring her home.

We had a bit of a stressful time when I put her out in the paddock. I put the other 3 mares in the adjoining paddock so they could sniff and squeal at each other over the fence. My Percheron (2 year old) decided she was NOT going to be the low man on the totem pole anymore. Started charging the fence, and ran along side of it bucking. She got her hind leg stuck in it and tore down 3 of the 4 rows of fencing (it's poly wire tape fencing.) Funny horses continued to squeal and sniff, but no one would pass the fence posts, even though there was practically no fence. SO I sent the DH out to fix it, longe whip in hand. After it was fixed, there were a few more mare moments. Willow the Percheron gets pushed around by everyone else, and I thought she'd be the best with the new girl. BOY WAS I WRONG! She was the biggest problem!

Sadie also went into heat. Probably because she's never been around stallions and there are 2 on the property now. She's infatuated with Jager, the Shire stallion. She was watching him and flagging all day... It was kind of cute.

hahah! I bet Willow went from "I'm big and mean and going to show you who's boss" to "oh god the fence is down, don't let her in, don't let her in, pleaaaaaaaase don't let her in"

Willow is apparently on some kind of power trip. Yesterday she reared up while on the lead line, I kicked her ***. I figured she was a little nerved up because I brought them in late and it was almost dark, and there was something in the woods. I even heard it. But she did it again today, and it was only 4:00 when I brought her into the barn. My trainer isn't available for a few weeks, any advice to get me thru?

Mercedes and I took our first ride down the road yesterday. She was pretty good, although she kept throwing her head way down like she was going to buck. I think her nose band is a little too tight but the girl I got her from said she's always been fine in it. My personal trainer (the woman who gives me lessons) is coming over with her horse Thursday and we're going out for another ride. I will keep you posted on how it goes!
