Dakota and Katie bugs new
the horse have done anything untill yesterday...
~Dakota~ he was avery hyper boy yesterday he was bucking and kicking and going on his back feet:( he was trying to get katie bugs to run be she would not because it's nothing but mud in the pasture:( so Dakota was getting very mad at katie so he took off at a dead run and bucked and sliped:( I ran out the door in just a swetshirt, pajama pants and socks (no shoes) my mom ylled at me because of what I did but I did not care I wontted to make sure Dakota was ok. so When I got to him, I called his name and ha came running up to me and he was ok. when I got inside I was frezzing because we had strong wind (about 50 or 60 mph) and now I think I'm going to have a cold:( ~Katie bugs~ when Dakota fell she ran up and made sure ha was OK well* well thats all* and When I Hayed the horses at 8:00 PM I wished I would have had the camra becase they were running and the was they had there heads and the way they were lifting feet they looked like Dressage horses!!! SOO CUTE!!

Wow! I really appreciate everyone’s support, even though I did not get blogs out for a couple days, you guys still came and voted for Zorro! As I have told many of you, I had the flu! Not fun at all, luckily I did not have a stomach flu! I am feeling much better today (thank goodness). I made up a calc exam yesterday that I missed when I did not go to class on Tuesday, I was happy with my score. I was supposed to have a Sociology exam today, but the class was canceled because the weather prevented my professor from making it in today, that was a nice relief! Also, I was supposed to give a speech today, but we ran out of time in class, so I will not give it until Tuesday. Since I was sick, it is such a relief to have things postponed like this, so I have time to catch up! Well, nothing new happening with the horses, I have not been able to ride with the weather and my flu lately. I have been making a point to go and play with the baby though, I was only not able to one day that I was sick and could not make myself get out of bed, but other than that, I am a dedicated horse person! Well, I got a wonderful quote suggestion from Opie’s owner: The wagon rests in winter, the sleigh in Summer and the horse never...yiddish proverb. People you should vote for--Ok, so C Me Shine # 112352 is running for HOTD on on Feb 28th, she had tried once before, but did not get quite enough votes, and would really like your support. Going for HOTM in April: Petite Fleur #107376, Ana #120988. Going for HOTM in May: Rocki #116236, Tianna #107180, Stormy #41838. Just thought I would let out a quick update on what I know of who is running, if I missed you I AM SORRY! That is all for now. -Amber

The month is almost over, I sure hope Zorro is going to get HOTM!!! The baby is doing great, I put some new pics up that I took this weekend! He is a sweetheart! He loves people and is really gentle with little kids, he is good with my brothers 1st grade and 4th grade and my little cousin (4 yrs old), came over this weekend too, and saw him! I cannot believe he is only 1 week old(today!!!), it seems like I have had him for MUCH longer. He is really growing on me, and my parents like him too! A couple of people had asked-it is a palomino boy, I have not come up with a barn name yet, and I do not know if I will keep him, I might just do the training on him and let the breeder sell him. QUICK TIP:When training a horse to ride, it is really beneficial to ground drive them before you start to ride, then that way once you do get on his/her back, he/she already understands rein cues. -Amber

heres somemore info on Dakota i got!
well we rescued him for staving because his owner did not have a lot of money and she had 10 horse to take care of and Dakota was one of the 7 she was selling. We saw him on Dreamhorse.com (well my mom friend saw him on there)and she said that he was dead broke... but when we got him home he was far from dead broke he was more like green broke (just enough to ride.) my mom and her friend when and got him well I was in school so when i got home (off the Bus) i almost dropped every thing (my bag and my shoe i was caring) and ran yelling "OMG! U GOT HIM!!!!!!!!" and I think are nabbores thought i was crazzy!! but i don't care. LOL when i got inside the house i got on my laptop and got on Myspace.com and i put my mood to "got a New horse!" Supper Excited with a smiley :)! oh soo happy and right now I'm supper hyper! its 6:03 pm! Well i thanks u for reading!!:) :) :) :) I <3 DAKOTA! Aka brat boy!!

Thanks for everyone's name suggestions, I cannot remember if I put this in my last blog, but I was thinking something like Goldies Reward, for his registered name. I am not sure though. He is doing really well, happy, healthy and energetic!!! It is soo much fun having a foal around. The breeder who owns his mommy also has a mare at his house that foaled on the 14 and I went and saw him again yesterday. He named him cupid(for his barn name). QUOTE-"A pony is a childhood dream, a horse is an adulthood treasure." --Rebecca Carol. We had to do a caligraphy project in 8th grade art, and that was the quote I used :). Quick tip, do not forget to condition your leather this spring, to prevent cracking and make sure there is no damage. Please do not forget to vote for Zorro! Thanks for everything! --Amber

Daily Blog--News on the baby!
I got some pictures of the baby on here, I still do not have a name :). Anyways, I put them at the bottom of Zorro's page! They are not the best, but hey, I have only had like 24 hours to take pictures so far. For those of you who do not know he was born early morning on Feb 16th. He is a BIG boy, those pictures are from 1 day old. Anyways, so I have been spending every spare moment of my time with him! Quick tip/reminder-a mare must be dewormed within 24 hours of giving birth because the hormones given off from birthing causes a activation of the worms and if not cared for properly can lead to tissue damage, stunting of growth, joint damage, or even death of the foal! Well, as soon as I get some really good pictures of him, I will post them on Zorro's page too, I do not want to put up a page for him yet, because I have not decided if I am going to buy him, or another foal yet. I hope you guys understand. --Amber P.S. I think Zorro is jelous, b/c he is not getting all the attention anymore :).

Hi!
Sounds like fun! That would be nice if you could!!!!!!!!!! Around here the english classes tend to be smaller than the western ones which could be nice if you are just starting up and want to show!

I do not have a good side view of Dakota, but based on the breed and what I can see, I think he/she would make a fine, both english and western horse.

"hi i got a Q. is it hard for a horse to ride English and western???? thanks!!" It depends on the horse. Some horses have nice confirmation that allows them to do both quite well, others not so much. Many of the people I show with do both with the same horse. Most horses do not have much of a problem. The main thing is just teaching them to do both and spending enough time so they are not confused. It just takes more training. Also, some horses that do western may be confused at first when you introduce working on the bit for English, but it is not that bad to work through. (that would be Zorro, he is much better now though, it took about 5 rides to clear the confusion). Hope this answers your question, if it doesnt, just tell me! ttyl, thanks for voting for Zorro, hopefully he will get HOTM!

Hi!
Hi, I thought I would send out an update for everyone ?! Well, first off, thank you to everyone who is supporting Zorro while he is running for HOTM!!!! All your votes count! Ok, so today it got to be 45 degrees, woot, woot! I was loving it up! So once I got home from the campus, I rode Chaps and then a little later rode Zorro. I worked on Dressage and Hunt seat with both of them. Chaps was amazing as always, and of course, if you knew me, you would know I have a hard time keeping a bridle on a horse’s face. So after I “finished” riding him in the English saddle, I took off his saddle and bridle and rode him bareback and bridleless :). He is really well trained so it is sooooo much fun. When I ride him bridleless he goes into his Western Pleasure frame. We rode circles in the yard and went out on the roads and stuff, worked on sidepassing and pivoting too, it was fun. When I rode Zorro, he started out really distracted and a tiny bit hyper, not jumpy hyper, but just lots of energy and good movement hyper, if that makes any sense. But by the time I was done he was listening to me and quite calm and well behaved. I worked him in both a Dressage head set and a stock hunt seat head set. He is still a little confused with all this English stuff since I started him Western Pleasure. For example, when I canter in his dressage head set, he really wants to go down into his Western Pleasure frame. He would make a really good peanut roller, but I would rather have a horse that can move, that is why I do the dressage! Well, hope this is not too long. Once again, thank you for voting for Zorro, please keep the votes coming! Also could you drop C Me Shine #112352, a vote, she is running for HOTD on the 28th.

Come visit me, Zorro.
