Hi! I hope everyone is doing well! I've really been missing you guys! I'm sorry I havn't been on! As most of you know, I'm a full time student. Grades always come before here. But since I'm in honnors and AP classes, time on here isn't exactly abundant. Plus, I've had a nasty sinus infection for 3 weeks! :( It's finally almost gone! We had homecoming yesterday already! It was fun I guess, I'm not much for dances! =/ But it was still alright. Other than that I'm pretty good. My only homework this weekend was to rough draft a speech, which is ok so far, I plan on proofreading in the morning! I havn't seen stormy latley, but I'm hoping he is doing well. How is everyone else? Great I hope! How are your horses and ponies? Has anyone ridden latley? Well, Heres a vote from us. I hope to be on more soon, but I can't make any promises! I wanted to go for 5000 votes soon, but I dont think I will. Seeing as I don't know how much I'll be able to get on and I feel horrible when it takes me weeks to get back to blogs. Well talk to you soon, ♥ Stormy & Annie

P.S. Sorry this is a generic blog but I have to go to bed in about 20 min!

Come visit me, ♥ Stormy ♥ Not on as much latley :(.

How did your first show go? Sorry, I didn't have any tips. I've never actually showed.

It's a little cooler here today. Pippin is already starting his winter coat. I'm of two minds to clip him again. I haven't decided yet. I think if and when it gets back into the 100s I may go ahead and do just that. His replacement flymask has not yet come. I hope it doesn't take too long. The flies are just terrible.

This evening it was windy. I always move Pippin from his big paddock into a smaller pen at night. There he has a shelter and less chance of being eaten by something. I always just open both gates and he comes running and whinnying and canters straight to his food in the smaller pen. Well, because of the wind the gate to the small pen was closed by the time he got to it. I had Melian on a lead tied to the fence right there and Pippin had every opportunity to trample her. He got really close twice but was good enough to avoid her. I was a little worried but then I was very happy because since he doesn't like strange dogs at all this was a confirmation of his acceptance of her. If that had been some unknown dog he would have tried to kill it.

I was wondering if you could do me a favour and vote for Melian, my dog, in the cutest photo contest? Here is the link:

Don't forget to remove the spaces. Thank you so much. And here's a vote for the beautiful.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

Thanks For The Blog and Vote!
I went back to your pages and voted for all of your horses!!! A NL pony is a Newfoundland Pony- they are native here. Look it up under the breeds here! The NL Pony that I used to ride could jump four feet!!! But he was too headstrong so only the older girls were allowed to jump him :( :( :(... Do you have any showing tips? My first show is on Saturday!
Thanks,

How's everything going with you? Thanks so much for the congrats for Pippin's hotd. It was a really nice surprise. And what are NL ponies?

I had a really great ride on Prince yesterday. I rode with the English saddle again and I put the jump standards on their sides and wedged the poles on them. That was much more secure and he only refused the first time. After that he jumped every time and it was so much fun. They were only a foot high but this is a huge improvement.

Pippin's flymask came but it's too small and rubs on his eyeballs. So, I need to see if I can return it and get a larger size. He really needs it badly. A few nights ago I took him out with the cart and Melian came too. This was the second time Melian has been in the cart and the first time we've done it alone. They were both really good but I need to work out some commands. Everytime I told Melian to do something Pippin would try to do it. I had never really thought about how much attention he pays to what I say. He's really such a good boy.

Melian gave me a big scare yesterday. While I was riding Prince his owners were taking care of her and she escaped and ran off without them noticing until it was too late. She can run very fast and she didn't stop. She ran out the gate and down the highway and then through lots of fields. I tried calling her and then got in the car and started down the road slowly, and calling constantly. I couldn't see her anywhere and she was still running scared. I finally turned around because I figured she couldn't have gone as far as that and started back slowly.

Suddenly I saw her in the distance among the trees and deep grass. First I thought she was a deer but then realized that it was Melian. I immediately stopped and ran across the road to call her. Luckily there was a hole in the fence right there and I scooted under. When Melian heard my voice she was SO relieved. She came running super fast and cried the whole way. Then she jumped into my arms and kissed me over and over again. Prince's owners were so scared because they felt responsible. I think that they were more scared than I was.

Anyway, all's well that end's well and I didn't lose her. So many things could have happened. Cars and broken legs are what were foremost in my mind. Saluki puppy legs are very fragile with their growth plates.

Well, that's all from me. As usual I just blab on. Here's a vote for you. Have a great week.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

Natural Horsemanship
Anyone into NH? I'm not sure who is best, Clinton seems to have taken Parelli's method, Parelli costs a lot, and Monty Roberts is a lie, the others just aren't appealing. Any advice?

Drivers Showcase
This Sunday was the Canadian Drivers Showcase at our local track. The best drivers in Canada came and drove our horses in the usual races. Dropdead Beautiful came second! I was so proud of her! She'd love it if you voted for her- she tried REALLY hard!

My First Horse Show
For anyone who cares, I'm going to my first horse show on Saturday, August 1st. Any advice would be appreciated. I'm entering in an English Equitation On The Flat class and a Cross-Rail Pony Hunter class. I'd like people who have done these classes to tell me what judges are looking for and how to calm nerves. I'm going on a dressage horse that came from Germany named Loverboy that just won the biggest show in the province so I'm not too worried- but still a little.
Thanks,
Hoofbeat
