HOLA! How are you all? I would love to hear how you and your horses are doing! Well, I did nothing with horses today so I dont have much to tell :[ I would like to say thanks to everyone who has voted for all of my horses! They are doing very well with their votes and Jewel needs ONE more vote for 500 votes! Thank you guys! STRAWBERRY'S UPDATE!: Well, Strawberry is doing just fine!! He is loving his Florida weather! I am so jealous of him. He has made new friends at his new barn that he is staying at! I think he has one mule friend, a couple of miniatures and a big horse friend! I will try to find out the names for you! Soo yup, Strawbee is doin just fine! Keep those votes comin'! Yesterday I introduced you to Mamie 120341 and I want to thank you for all of the votes she got! So please please go see her again soon! also, please please vote ZORRO 116699 for HOTM! He probably needs 100-200 votes to win! Go and visit him NOW! Thank you all for the votes/comments! KEPEP THEM COMING! remember: Pippi HOTM in June/Jewel HOTM in August/ Deacon HOTM in September! So can you guys say that in your sleep yet??? LOL I know I can!! ♥Pippi Jewel Deacon and Srawberry♥

long blog!
Hey everyone! First I would loke to say that I am really truley sorry for not getting to blog yesterday! I was SO tired from going to the barn that day! I worked with Jewel on Tursday. Well, not really. I just let him roll then I groomed him. He was happy :] And today I RODE Pippi!! It was my first real ride in a LONG time! We only did W/T beacuse the indoor is extremely small and there was a big hay wagon in there so we had to be really careful! She did wounderful though! She was collecting very nicely. I am trying to train her to round her neck nicely for me. Any suggestions on how to help? Deacon is just well, plain old Deacon! He is happy that the weather is warming up a bit though! I got some new pics of Pippi laying down in the snow yesterday. They are at the bottom af her page so please go look! Okay you all know by now that you MUST vote for Zorro 116699, right? Well I have another favor to ask. My friend Vous m'aimerez (aka MAMIE!) is going for 300 votes and needs some attention! Her sister (not biolagically) Petite Flur is getting way more attention than Mamie120341. So lets try to be nice and help her out with her goal! Here is a little bit about Mamie: she is a BEAUTIFUL 23 y/o Arabian and is around 15.2 hands. Here is how her owner met her: Bringing my mare Petite Fleur to winter board with her and they bonded! She is bonded to me, also, as her leader. In my opinion, she looks NOTHING like 23 y/o! More like 15 y/o! Tell me what you guys think of her! Thanks so much and PLEASE keep voting for all of my horses so they can get some votes! Again I am SO sorry about nott blogging yesterday! Thanks again! ♥Pippi Jewel Deacon and Strawberry♥

I am back!
m am back! YAY! I missed all of you HC people so so much! If you didnt know already, I went on a skiing trip in Lake Placid. Its a pretty important place because hte held the 1980 Olympic Winter Games there. I went skiing at Whiteface Mt. and I went on the steepest trail in the North East! Ist called Skyward and it is carazy. The hotel we stayed at was literally right across from the Olympic Training Center! I could see it from outside my room. The hotel had a pool and hot tub and we saw these two really big muscular guys in the hot tub and our friends were in there sitting and talking with them and it turns out that they are olympic bobsleders for the country of Monico r somthing like that! It was a really fun trip but I missed all of the animals back at home! Anyway, I was not able to get on until today so I am SO sorry! If you could please tell me who got HOTD on the last couple of days so I can congradulate them that would be great! Thanks you all for voting for me while I was gone. It really means a ton to me that you would do that even when you know that I coundnt return the favor that day. Please please remember to keep voting for ZORRO 116699 for HOTM in March! I think Zorro totally deserves it! Please just take a quick look at his page and maybe leave a vote if you like him! Also remember to keep voting for all of my horses for HOTM! Heres the month that they are running- Pippi for June/ Jewel for August/ Deacon for September! Trust me, I will keep reminding you until you can say that in you sleep! I know I can! Haha. One more thing, please dont forget about Strawberry!! Even though he is not running for HOTM does not mean you shouldn't vote! Thanks you to everyone who is still voting for him but I need everyone to start! Again, my apologies for being away for a couple of days! Please please forgive me! Thank you all so so much! Heres a vote! ~♥Pippi, Jewel, Deacon, and Strawberry ♥

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 :).

Come visit me, Zorro.

Hope your all enjoying your day! I sure know I am! I went to the barn AGAIN today! I got to work with Jewel. As always, he rolled right away when we set him free in the indoor. He LOVED it. He hasnt been loved in such a long time so, I think he had a nice v day. After all of our playing I groomed him and boy, was he dirty! We also worked on some showmenship stuff w/ him but thats a whole different story!Oh and dont worry, I just bleed a little on my hands from pulling Pippi's mane yesterday. Nothing too serious, just a few cuts! Also, I just wanted to tell you all that I am going away to Lake Placid to ski on Sunday and Monday and we are coming back Tuesday. So, I probably wont be able to respond with such long blogs. In fact, I may not be able to get on at all! OH NOO! So, keep voting and blogging please! We will get back to you ASAP! But yea I am also going to the barn on Thursday and Friday so, I will have LONG blogs on those days! Yay! Well, give all of your horses and ponies hugs and kisses for me! I will be back on Tuesday! Thanks! PLEASE REMEMBER TO VOTE ZORRO 116699 HOTM FOR MARCH! ~Pippi HOTM in June/ Jewel HOTM in August/ Deacon HOTM in September!! :]

Hi everyone, isn’t it great? It is Friday!!! I just took a spread sheet and database class exam, it was not that hard, I got 1 wrong, oh well. I am looking at buying a new saddle it is a medium oil show saddle. It is nothing compared to the custom made saddle I show in right now, but it is pretty nice and I wanted something else to practice in. I have a smaller saddle, but I would rather practice in something more comparable in size to what I show in. Also, my younger brother needs a show saddle. I picked it up yesterday to try on my horses, but I think I will try it on today because it was snowing yesterday and I do not want to damage the leather! Thanks for everyone’s comments, I think I am getting back to you, if I do not just tell me, I might have missed it, like all humans I am not perfect! REMINDER-we are getting closer to show season, it is time or almost time to do a boot clip on our horse’s legs, so they are nice and tidy come show time! QUICK TIP-this one goes with me getting a saddle, remember that when checking to see if a saddle fits, try it directly on the horse’s back without a saddle pad, this will give you the best idea, then you can run your hand underneath and make sure it has even contact. INTERESTING FACT-four horse chariot races where introduced to the Olympic games in 648 B.C. A few people asked what the web address for the newsletter I was talking about, so here it is ( Well, that is all for now--Amber and Zorro p.s. Thanks for all the votes from everyone, keep them coming!

Hi Dan, It's almost HOTD Time!
Please remind us to vote for HOTD for Dan the day before! We'll be there for you :-) We've had a bit too much rain the last few days so we are knee deep in Mud (argh!). Lex was so full of himself yesterday when I tried to get him out of his stall to walk - he was tossing his head and even reared several times. He was doing his best Stallion imitation, and a very good job of it!!! I don't use a stud chain, but it would've helped yesterday. The blustery winds and on and off rain got all the horses hyped up. This morning is sunny and beautiful (now, that's more like it!) but don't know if it'll be warm enough to dry puddles and mud, hope so! I may not be able to ride, but maybe at least longe. That's our update for this morning. Take care, Sandy and Lex from Sunny (finally :-) San Diego

Saturday’s update! Today I worked with Zorro and Kai. It was much colder to day, the low 20s and a little breezy, but for a native Minnesotan, it feels nice still! So I ground drove Kai with the western saddle, I think it was a first with the western saddle, I usually use a surcingle and sometimes the English saddle. She was amazing and had her sweet personality! I rode Zorro hunt seat, he was pretty good, a little funny about his headset at first, but got over it, so today went pretty well in the end. It was nice to be able to ride! I hope tomorrow is pretty nice too. I did wear a coat today when I rode, where yesterday I wore just a sweatshirt, so I am being sensible about the weather. Sunday’s update, it got to be around 35 degrees today, much better! I only rode Zorro though, because I had a bunch of studying and whatnot to do. I rode him Hunt Seat and he was very good for me, and did not even complain about working on the bit!!! Improvements being made everyday! It was a little slippery, but not too terribly bad, so I could canter, yippy! Hope everyone else is doing well, and able to ride if you have the same winter conditions as me! All of you in the south where it is over 60, you are just spoiled, JK! Well, thanks for voting for Zorro, please keep voting so he can get HOTM, he can only get it with your help and I really mean it! Ttyl, A and Zorro, As always voting for you!

Come visit me, Zorro.
