How We Met

My horse trainer found him for me. I have had him for a couple of years now. Hank is a horse who doesn't like to respect you right away. He always used to push me around and be naughty but after he has gotten to know me he listens much better and he loves me to death now. He follows me around the pasture and since I can't come over to see him alot he nickers and whinnies when I come to visit him. He has improved alot since I first got him he is much less spazzy :) thank goodness!!.

aw thats too bad! i wish i could say i know what its like but i can't as i am lucky enough to have my boys live at the house!

c/p so yesterday we were in a humongous blizzard! we went to school on time but then went home at one thirty! so then my bus wasn't taking some people home and i wasn't one of them cause i was on one of the gravel roads! so then two of my neighbors! yeah my neigbors live like half a mile to a mile away from me so they are not so close neighbors didn't get to go on the bus! we were to take the school suburbans! well the one going towards where we were going was full! so our superintendant said i can take five and there was five of us! so then we were going and we could barely see twenty yards or less in front of us! we couldn't see anywhere! so we dropped this one person off first and we got down his road fine but then we went to my road and you turned off and there was a humongo drift so then he wouldn't take me to my house so i was thinking great but then i stayed at my neigbors house until my mom got me! then we went down our road! we almost got stuck and the drifts were between two or three feet! and they could have been bigger! so we got home and then the dogs climbed out of their kennel so they got to go in the house! and then this morning we had two hour late start and the bus wouldn't pick me up cause of my road so i had a school suburban pick me up and then i was late for school to my delight but i didn't miss anything in my first class! i think that is pretty much it! so the weather has been crazy and it is now super cold and the horses are in the barn! that is why i haven't been on too so again sorry about that! i feel so bad about it! cathy and buddy

C\P Happy New Year!!
It's a snow storm here!! LOL!!
The horses are loving it tho...Lady is doing great, she was running like a wild, young, crazy horse out in the snow. I just realized how much teeth she gots for her age. Im glad I've only had her teeth floated once. My mom told me a story about her friend that had a senior horse, and she floated her horse's teeth like three times a year...and than ran out of teeth to float, so they had to put him down at the age of 23yr. =[
I hope the power doesn't go out...its really snowing here...ttyl~mj and lady

Here's a Wednesday vote.
Sorry, I have not been on lately...very busy!!
So Tuesday, I had my riding lesson. I rode Echo and we didnt really do much because there was alot of new beginner students. We did the basics and played musical stalls and practiced the key hole(my time was 12.25 seconds). And the one of the new girls fell off, but she wasnt hurt, it was her first time cantering a horse.
I had fun tho. Lady is doing good, she has been sleeping laying down alot and I hope to gets so pics of her doing that. She so cute!! I have not rode her in a while caz of bad weather =[ I wish I had an indoor arena...
Oh, all most forgot to tell you guys... Have you ever heard of mini pigs?? My family is going to start raising\breeding mini pigs in the spring (and chickens too)!! Well, I hope you guys are doing good. I got to go get ready for ANOTHER suprise B-day party for my BFF Gracie, she's turning 13yr. Friday. So yeah, wish me luck that this goes out well.

Good evening!
Hi guys i just thought since i have some extra time i might tell you about my weekend! Sound good? OK here it goes. Saterday was the beginning, i got up at 7:00 to go and feed. It was like 0 degrees out and i was frozen. I came inside and got warmed up by the fire and then i got ready for the day. After i was done with all this it was about 9:00 and i had a lesson at 9:30. I got bundled up in, 2pairs of pants, 2 pairs of socks, long sleve shirt, english boots, and 2 coats. We went outside and i got sonador all saddled and ready for my lesson. Kala (my instructor) came and i dismounted and handed her her check for the lesson and her christmas gift. She said thanks and we started the lesson. Last week we worked on my eq, and a little jumping. Now that i had my lower leg solid she said she thinks it is OK to start to jump higher. (last week the last like 20 mins we had a quick jumping lesson at 6 inches. sonador did fine with this, even though she had never jumped before.) So we got out our 1 foot jumps and started with that after we worked on suppleing and such. First attempt at the jumps we walked over them lol. Second attempt we trotted over them. (and i mean literally sonador did not jump them when she was trotting she just trotted right over them picking her legs up high, i mean she is a 16.1 horse so she can do this pretty easily. lol) So the third attempt kala had me trot her and like a foot before we jumped we qued for a canter, and this time she jumped! I must have looked so funny cuz she jumped like 2 feet higher than i was expecting her to so when i came down i was just laughing and i looked over to my mom who had not seen me jump yet because she was gone at my last lesson, and she looked like she was about ready to have a heart attack. It was so funny. The 4th attempt we did it beautifully and sonador looked so pretty my mom said. we did this about 6 more times and 2 of those turned out really good and 4 of them turned out ok. It was so fun though, if you do english you have not had a ride of your life until you do jumping, i mean it feels like you are flying!

Next that night Nebraska corn huskers (go huskers!) had a football game, last one of the season and it was the big 12 champs. (anyone watch this?) We were playing texas longhorns. They were ranked 3rd and we were ranked 23rd. Amazing that we even made it to the champs! So the game was going great huskers were winning until the very last 20 seconds. It all started we had a bad punt and it went out of bounds. So that gave them a advantage, then we had a player hoarse collar another player trying to tackle them and we got a pentalty, so that helped them, and then in the very last second they were close enough to make a feild goal and they made it winning the game by 1, and this was at the last second of the game. Imagine the heartbreak of nebraska! tough tough game (sigh)

Sierra and sonador just trotted by with a vote!!!!!!!!

Come visit me, Sonador Lace(not on much, i am in the barn more!).

c/p for today!
Great day! I did chores with Hilary(about brans age and goes to high school near the farm, she works on the farm till 9 cuz her classes dont start till 10) We got the horses fed then started turning out. i had all four of mine(sad i know only four to turn out) then started on stalls by the time she was done I was on my 6th stall so as you can guess I did stalls by my self sadly! lol. it was k tho i got to listen to the radio loudly and such so i lived, then Mel came and she was sick so i told her to go to the docter and she listened to me and went, she has bronkitis(sorry i cant spell) and the flu all in one! How nice is that! the doctor said she will be better in a week but if not I am suposed to force her to go in again. lol. So yeah then i fed and ate, then got Alex groomed up adn ready to be rode, who knew a dressage saddle was harder then a englihs(lol) then i did some cleaning jobs for money and got to ride Ana. I rode her western and Mel was so proud of us she said we did really good for not having lessons anymore. Then i untacked her saddle and tryed to swing up on her bareback, i faile misserbly Mel laughed so hard i just kept saying "i cant do it" then i would fall on my butt lol so mel helped me, she told me to grab mane with both hands (somethign i cant do very good) and swing my hips and get my long legs up there, yeah you know i think it would be easier if i had short legs cuz lol it dint work, i finlayy got on but i almost fell but i was like "ok mel your doing this next" lol she said no cuz she was on a 3 year old, well i know jeanie has rode him around bareback so lol mel would be fine. and i got new pics of Ana and Spot! I let Ana graze after i rode so i layed in the grass and took pics they are really cute! i put one up and i added spots too! also good news bout spot! We can start riding him! I might get to ride him Wed. Mel rode him todya and he did GREAT! YAY! lol leaving votes for you~Mel and Ana+Spot and misty p.s. VOTE ANA AND NAVAJO HOTM!

left Hank another vote for you~Mel

Sorry I dint get on yesterday! I rode Misty first! Rode in the bozel to give her a brake from the curb! she did AMAZING! She collects so good in the Bozel I am sad we have to switch her. lol. She cantered slow and did some good rollbacks! Not as good as Ana but good. I am gonna teach her slidding stops too. YAY! So after a great rollback i walked her out and then put her out. I brought Butter in rite after that and groomed her and grabbed a english bridle (she never gets rode in one) so she was hyper and happy to have a lighter bit in her mouth then a curb she collceted up and everything. I was cantering her and told her to go fast adn i could feel her break into the gallop, and lorrain was on Ana watchign she laughed so hard cuz we dint know lil butter could go so fast haha. I just love her so much! I am gonna show her next year in the bareback classes or Ana. lol. So after our gallop i cooled her out and put her away then got Mazie. I luv that horse. Shes so pretty! Her canter is not my fav but her jog trot is GREAT! Kinda fast but when shes slow its like floating on air you can trot her fast adn sit it no problem shes so smooth. Mel says spots the same way so i cant wait to ride Spot soon. So Mazie did great for me! I luv her! She dint even rear or fall during lunging! YAY! Sop i put her out and grabbed Ana. I just clipped on her clip on reins on to her halter and mounted up. Ana did so good for me. She walked around the endge and when shed start to incho in i would us my inside leg to push her in lightinly and she listened great. I cantered her slowly and fast! We galloped one round then i walked her. I got another idea. Take her riens off and loop them around her neck! so she listened to my neck and leg cues and not mouth! I trotted her and walked her and did a barrel pattern at the walk. she did great. then i took the rope off and dismounted then put her in a stall and fed her lunch! I sat in the stall with her and fell asleep lol Mom said Ana was standing over me like she was protecting me when she came into the barn. I woke up and gave ana a kiss and grabbed my bag and coat and mom took them into the car I grabbed Ana's lead rope and clipped it on her and jumped on bareback. I cued her into a canter and we cantered to the pasture! She picked her head up before we got to teh gate, i think she wanted to jump it but there was no way I was gonna let her do it haha... so i stuck her out and she followed me thru the lean to into the barn she dint want me to go so i turned back and gave her a big hig and kiss and told her to go play and then she nodded her head and went out of the pasture. It was so adorable. It was a great day even if i did fall asleep in a stall and left early! hah! Thanks for all the votes too! Ana is so close to her goal! only 25 to go! YAY! Thanks guys but i need to run ttyl~Melissa and ♥ Ana ♥ and NAVAJO 4 Dec HOTM
