How We Met

He was actually a police horse in Houston Texas for 2 years when he was young. but he had a problem where he couldnt sweat(i forgot the name of it) and the heat of Texas made him unable to work when it was hot (which is all the time! lol) so they had to sell him. So i saw the add, and i ended up buying him. so after about a month of him being at my place he was cured! lol, he started to sweat...and sweat ALOT! so I trained him myself, and now hes a sweaty little jumper that is the absolute best horse ever! oh and the pic at the bottom of the big trophy and ribbon is what Riv and i won at our FIRST show together! I was so happy. plus it was a charity show, so all the money we won we donated to the charity!.

Hey!
Trevor got sold, aw man! Kiss sounds like an awesome horse though, he sounds like a really good jumper! I have not seen Rocki since last Monday because of rain. Today it stopped though, so there will be no riding (wet) but some grooming hopefully and just being let out of his stall. Thanks for coming and voting... here is a vote for you!

It has been raining here to, thanks for the tip! Sounds like you did have an interesting ride! Sorry you had to ride in the rain, but you did do the right thing by not letting him win. That is for sure! So have you ridden anyone else lately? :D

Hey!
Yeah, I get what you are saying. This one has leather in all those places though... so it won't break! :D I like it a lot! Yeah all the colors are great, but as you said they can break them. Poetry (a 16.2 4 year old paint) at our barn was scared and he shred his easily cause he is a monster! Rocki jerked his once cause I was trying to measure him... and as it says on my page he is scared of it. That did not work well. Do you have any ideas how to get him used to it? I would like to measure him... haha!
Let's give a BIG thanks to Cody who gave us our 1,000th vote please go see him <<<88811>>> 3/27/09

Haha!
Aw, Trevor sounds like a funny horse! :D More so for an advanced rider... sounds like you know what to do with him when he is goofing off. Haha! I can't wait until my April 4th show I will be going against at least two of my friends! But I think they are calling for rain here that day, that is what I hate about spring... rain rain and more rain! Ugh! At the March 21st show the place I went to (just to watch my friends) they have a tack shop and I begged my mom to let me get Rocki a new leather halter. I was going to get a rainbow halter with a matching lead rope but then I decided I want a leather halter with blue nylon (leather is like under the face and above the ears... etc) but the blue is plaid and it has like hot pink stripes etc. At paint shows, and other shows I'll have to get some pictures up of him in it :D Voted....! :D

Hey, that is a cool name! Blurry pictures, aw that stinks. Well tell me more about him... :D Sounds sort of like Rocki! Well not the coloring etc. but the personality. I went riding yesterday and we went out in the back pasture and we were so called "jumping" a ditch well Rocki would go half way stop and eat...! We are going again Friday and packing lunches and eating on the top hill with a few friends as long as it doesn't rain! *Guys I am so sorry I am so late getting back to your blogs!

That is funny :). Well, my classes for the next couple days are canceled so we can all sand bag, because the river might actually crest high enough for the whole town to go under water, so I guess we are just all out. I am going out to sandbag right now! I sure hope it does not flood too bad, my aunt lives off the river and has never had her house touched by flood waters because of their land dike, but this year we are sandbagging, there are a bunch of ppl here volenteering too.

how'd you do at the 4'6"? sounds like a great day. i haven't had a chance to get back to pin oaks. :( just too much to do and no help. i decided to ride last night though completely worn out from lessons and my "rodeo day". had my riders doing barrel racing nad a lariat toss. i rode smooch and sing on the flat. could barely sit in the saddle. lol. well not that bad but i was hoping they didn't spook or act up. it was getting dark and they, of course, hear things in the brush next to the arena or my cat stalks something.

That sounds like it works good for you! You are lucky you are so close. I wish. I spend so much time driving...but I guess it is worth it in the end. Because I really do not have a good place to keep my horses in town or anything. Plus I am kinda needed on the farm.

Sorry I have not been on Horse Channel in a few days!
I wake up at 6:00 and then get ready to go, my first class is at 8:30, and I drive for 45 min, sometimes a little more depending on traffic. So I do not do anything with the horses in the morning (I have an amazing mother that takes care of them for me!). I tried to go outside and take care of them before, and it just didnt seem to work with my schedule. I dont know, you could call me lazy, lol! But the only college that was closer than the one I am going to was a 2 year college and I was not going to go there! I am going for my Bachelors, and the 4 year has much more for options for classes too. Sometimes I just stay in town where I go to college, but I did not want to live on campus, so my flexable funny schedule just works for me! When I was stuck in town b/c of a blizzard last week, I wrote a blog (allaroundhorses.blogspot.com), for fun and I kind of like to write things sometimes. I also wrote one on small farms/poultry, but I did that this week.

He sounds gorgeous! Do you have any pictures of him... I think you should make him an account or put some of his pictures up on River's page. He sounds AWESOME! You are making me want him... hehe! 4 white stocking... I love leg markings... and on a black horse!!! So dreamy!!! :D Have you told me his name or is it just me forgetting things again?

Hey!
Aw, haha! River sounds like a funny horse! :D And how the little ponies are so brave... :D There is a 16.2 horse at my barn and he is 4 so still growing I think he is bigger than that though! But he is not fully trained so my friend was shaking car keys above his ears and he was flipping out! Haha! Short Update- Well it finally stopped raining so I had a chance to go riding! :D He was awesome, and he was picking up the right lead. He had been up for a week, and only been out for a day... and he did not buck 1 time when I lunged him. Guess being a 6 year old is getting to him, haha just kidding! Talk to you soon! *P.S. The baby (on Toria's page) was eating hay!!!*

Hey!
Bit you twice? Aw, I guess he did not like the idea of having a saddle on his back very much. At our barn our trainer lets girls there who are like 15 and up (only 2 doing it now) Abby-15 Stephanie-21 Abby is training her 1st horse named Boomerang and they are doing great! Boomerang is so good, and Stephanie is training a few the first horse she trained though was Rocki! I thought that was really cool! :D So have I asked already, I seem the have a memory loss problem too did you train River? :D Talk to you soon! *Thanks for 800 votes guys, we really appreciate it.

Well I don't own my first horse anymore, but she still lives on our property. Even though Cheyenne was a Christmas present mom didn't really want to give her to me, so I had to sort of trade Butterfly(my first horse) for Cheyenne. Butterfly is now 20 and partly blind and crippled so she can't be ridden anymore. She was turned into a broodmare a few years ago and she is an awesome mom. I still see her every day and she still loves me alot and she dosn't like my mom at all as mom was the one that had to give all the nasty medication to try and make Butterfly's eyes better. So do you help with training the horses? I hope to be a horse trainer, but for western events. Heres a vote.

Ugh, jerks! That is terrible! She was an awesome horse until, poof all of a sudden she isn't which leaves you wondering. That is why I leased Rocki for a week or 2, they kinda wanted to wait longer (parents) but I was sure he was for me! Anyway, he is perfect! I am sorry that happened to you, but honestly you can not tell. :p Talk to you later! :D Blogged on Abby too!

oh, good luck
at the show! must be almost over by now. your green paint horse sounds like heaven. that's what i want smooch to be. find the distance, make the lead changes. i worked once or twice on flying leads with him but he didn't get it. i may try again. i usually try to teach them over a pole. he wants to just stop then change. he's hard to do a simple change on cause he doesn't go to trot. i'm working on that just so we can do decent opening circle and closing circle. he just stops to walk in one stride. it's improving as we work on the extention. report back on how the show went. i take it you're not really in wyoming? if so, you must be freezing!

Glad You Agree!
Hey, haha! There are a few crazy mares at my trainers barn, they act really bad when they are in heat! Geldings generally are laid back, and do not have to deal with that. I almost bought a mare, Satin before I got Rocki but the day I was supposed to ride her to see if I wanted her she hurt her hoof [split it up the middle] and I was told it may be a year before she was sound again. I was sad, but if I would have got her I wouldn't have meet Rocki! :D I also looked at another horse Bo before I gt him, another paint/jumper. But he was like 16 hands! I was at the point of buying him, the vet check to make sure he was sound/and had negative coggins. The vet said he totally acted up, and was bucking etc. Which totally surprised me! I had ridden/lunged him several times and he had not flinched! The vet also said he had athrites... [which of course would cost extra $ for shots and would not be good for jumping] the vet also said "I would not reccomend this horse for a child", I was sad! He had NEVER done any of that.... Ah well... I got my boy Rocki and do not know what I would be without him!

My dad has said that sort of thing too, no boyfriends until you are like 40 and then he will be like your horse is your boyfriend. Haha I love geldings, mares can act a little crazy their is only one down about owning a gelding and that is cleaning their sheath but really it is worth it.

it's funny because sometimes horses suprise me with how quickly they forget their beloved stallmate and move on to whoever's available. do you have any shows coming up? sounds like your arena is fantastic! i'd love to have one that size! i'm not complaining cause my last place had a 40 x 80 covered arena. i'd never seen anything so small! didn't even think i could ride in it but then got used to it. tha'ts part of the reason my horses got slow and short with their strides. you could go around the whole thing in about 22 strides. i used to put one jump in the middle or one on each long side but making the turns was hard if you got a good canter. so my current arena is about 3 times bigger.

hi
so riv has a girlfriend, huh? i hate when horse's go spaz cause their friend leaves. sing has done that to me before. rainy cold day again. i may stay in and bake. i did lessons this morning and don't feel like riding. i use my covered arena for turn out....put half in stalls and half in the arena, then switch them out for the night. so if i want to ride in it i have to move them all back to their stalls. lots of walking, etc. we'll see how i feel after laying and watching tv for a few hours. do you watch jockeys? i love that show. really learning alot about racing. how big is your covered arena? mine doesn't have walls due to texas being so blistering hot 80% of the year. we like the breeze to blow through if there is any.

My report card has always been A's and B's this quarter though I made everything above a 90! :D I was so proud, but not straight A's because here an A is a 93 or above. In all my classes I got... Math- 99 A Science-98 A Social Studies- 98-99 Idk A English- 90 B that is where I lost it, because it is advanced and hard! My other classes were Music-96 A Tech Ed- 91 B, he has a very odd way of teaching. Well he doesn't teach us the computers do he sits there and reads the paper. Then Physical Education- 100 easiest class! Anyway my parents are pretty good as long as in the long run (report card) there is nothing below a C and there never has been... so I am good!

hi buddy
my peekster drove like a cadillac today. did a little western pleasure type trot when we were longlining outside turns, kinda a figure eight pattern around me. much more smooth in her transitions from walk/trot. i found a great exercise that will help me lengthen smooch, too. of all places in last months horse illustrated! i set up 4 cones in a diamond shape to work around at a 20M circle. i tried to get an even stride in each quadrant of the circle, then extend him and make each quad less strides. it's real easy to tell then (i can't see myself and ride alone) if i'm getting him lengthened. it's kind of addictive though because each time around i'm like "no! that one was 11 and this one was 10...got to get them even". had some good moments with it. buttercup shocked me because she was able to do a canter circle nicely! she's really stiff and flat and i have to hold her together on the circle. i almost felt like i was on a different horse with her. i only cantered her twice around each way since she did so well with it. so i was one hour in the saddle today. keep trying to meet these fitness goals so i can keep up if i do the horse show! i managed 4 rides on smooch this week, which is my goal until the show. oh, i should say we've had 2 days of rain and 2 more expected so my outside arena is too wet to jump. i'm in my 80 x 100 ft covered so i have to come up with exercises within that confinement. that's why i liked the circle one. :)
