How We Met

Baci was available for adoption through Phase2 Thoroughbreds, which finds homes for retired racehorses. As he had a bowed tendon, he was searching for a home where he could recover as a "rescue".

I was in University at the time and I purchased him for very little and he was given approximately 8 months off before slowly being brought back into work to recover from his injury.

It's been nearly 3 years since I brought him home and he's happy, sound and loves his new career.

Hi1
Hi, I got to go home yesterday!!! It was great to see the horses again; they were kind of wet from the rain and stuff we have been getting. Unfortunately no riding, we have this weird mix of snow, slush and water on the ground, too slippery to ride on, plus I had too much studying and stuff to do. We are having weird weather right now, and since we got all this rain/slush/snow stuff, it is just going to freeze up on us the end of this week. Oh well. I think I am going to add a “Did you know?” fact or a quick tip, like I did in my last blog. Quick fact: The Romans where the first to come up with the idea of a horse shoe, but instead of nailing on the shoe they used leather thongs so they where removable. If you want to get some great e-mail newsletters that have training updates along with just current events, check out America’s QH daily, it is free and you do not have to be a member of AQHA to get their newsletter. Oh, my chemistry test I took on Monday went well, I got a 97% on it! Remember C Me Shine is running for HOTD on Feb 28th. Please keep voting for Zorro so he can get HOTM! If you would like to see something in my daily blogs, just let me know! That is all for now, Amber and Zorro.

Come visit me, Zorro.

Hi!
Ok, nothing interesting happened yesterday, but it got cold enough for slush to form this morning. I have a Chemistry Lab exam today, wish me luck! Just so all of you know, that have not been in MN before. We get about as cold in the winter as any place in the US, and almost as hot in the summer. It is because we do not have any oceans nearby. Plus our summers are sooooo humid, it feels at least 10degrees warmer than it actually is. Last year we had a very nice mild summer, I LOVED it! It made it nice to ride, and I did not have to ride before 10:00 in the morning when it starts to get hot. We have a nicely sized above ground pool that we put up every year to keep us cool. Today’s TIP: now that spring is coming around, soak all of your brushes, and dirty halters in a bucket filled with warm water and a little bit of soap! It works wonders, I am sure some of you already do this, but if you do not, it is amazing how well it cleans everything! Ttyl, Amber and Zorro p.s. I left a vote for you!

Hi!
Well, sorry, no training update today, I am staying in town were I go to college the next couple days, due to the road conditions, so I am burdening my mother with the chore of taking care of my horses! But as soon as I ride again, I will be sure to put out an update! To all of you with temperatures in the 50s, 60s and 70s, I challenge you to come spend a winter in MN!!! Well, we actually did get to 40 degrees yesterday and it rained, and it is still around 38 degrees this morning and raining more!, but it is going to be cooling off again, and all the standing water on the roads will probably just freeze there, that is why I am staying in town, to avoid having to drive on ice. It probably would not be bad on a short drive but I am 35 miles away from the campus where I take my classes, somedays I think 65 mi/hr takes forever, lol! Well, thanks for voting for Zorro, please keep them coming so he can get HOTM! As always, leaving a vote for you! Thanks, Zorro and Amber

Hi!
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!

Hi! Sorry about the long blog, I had a lot to say
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.

Thank you for supporting Zorro!!!! I really appreciate it! According to my calculations, Zorro will probably need to get 800-1200 votes this month to win HOTM, and he can only do it with YOUR help. Sorry so many of these bogs have been copy and paste blogs, I have hit that period of first exams for college spring semester, and I am much busier than I anticipated. I hope you understand, I will try to send out more personalized blogs once I get past this :)!!! Thank you once again for voting and please drop C ME Shine #112352, a vote today, so she can get HOTD tomorrow! And of course I am leaving a vote! ttyl, Amber and Zorro
