How We Met

Ben was one of the horses that was at the barn I borded my other horse at.My sister and I helped the owner of the barn to brake and train him for the saddle. When I was moving away the owner gave him to me as a gift for being so helpful on the farm. Got to admit that's the best way to get a good horse!!.

Hey Argos here
Boy has it been an adventure this year first I had to save my herd from a neighbors crazy stallion. He tore our fence down and attacked us but I tried with all my mite to keep him away and ended up pretty battered myself. I saved them though only 7 out of 23 of us got attacked me the worst. Then I was excepted into the Sheriff's Posse and we went on a practice search and rescue I was nervous at first but soon found out that I like trail rides and like to look for missing people. Then in June I went to a horse show and trotted on my own without other horses around boy was Felicia happy we didn't do great but we had fun. So now we are looking for a new riding instructor and hopefully we can get a few lessons in before winter hits.

Hey Ben, here is vote #235 for you!

Hey! Well SO sorry for the c/p, I am a little off schedule today because I went to see Skippa and the herd today and had quite a bit of homework. Well first of all I would like for you to all know that I am working on a blogspot like Ruth Ann ( Navajo ) and I will give you all the link as soon as I get it going! Okay so today I went to see Skippa. I am really liking her! She is such a sweetheart. We just got her out and pet her and led her around a bit. We are taking it slow and getting her used to us. She did very good today. When it starts warming up, I will be going to play with her almost daily=) Well we are leaving you with a vote, hope you have a great week!

Come visit me, Ferina, Izzy & Gracie.

I also got 2 gift cards to Tractor Supply, I'm gonna buy Izzy a halter with it, and also a few more things! My friend is getting me 2 halters for Christmas for the girls, too! Oh and I got a laptop and a new camera...I got it real good this year, a whole lot more than I deserve, haha! Well I hope that you are having a good new year so far! I have alot planned for this year! Ferina's training for western pleasure and pole bending will start, and I will also be helping with 5 other horses' training! I'm so excited. Well that's just about all for now...will be looking forward to hearing from you next time!! Here's a vote!

Hi Ben!!! Dont worry about it, I know how it is to not have time to get on HC as much as I would like. I found time yesterday because I didnt have a lot of homework. Well tonight is our first high school football game. I might go to that, but dont know. I am going to ask my mom if she can take me to see my horses today after school, then go spend the night with my grandparents. Then see the horses again tomorrow. I dont know yet. We left a vote:):):)

hi
check out my action shots of me riding my haflinger, peach with no saddle or bridle! she's fine bareback and really slow. i thought it would be fun to try but it ends up she doesn't think she should be ridden with no bridle, apparently!! she tried to bite me and was giving halfhearted bucks and rears!!

hi
good morning to ben! i see that he's hard to catch sometimes. do you board him or keep him at home. i try to go out in the pasture and pet or give my horses a carrot sometimes. that way it's not always catch and ride. they come to me easier. anyway, he sounds like a great partner. hope you're planning a fun week end.

IT is 105°F and air quality in LYON & Grenoble (close by us) is on high red alert due to pollutants with too many cars on the auto routes during the vacation time! Please pray we get over this soon and my poor PETITE FLEUR will stay as cool as possible! Absolutely no riding or anything more than a walk. HOPE THIS BLOG & VOTE FINDS YOU WELL!

Yeah I hope I can find my cattle soon to, the pasture that they have escaped into is about 1000acres with lots of hills and trees so I still have alot more searching ahead of me. It sounds like your Thursday ride was lots of fun, I always like those long rides. Yeah I would imagine that my horses would hate getting baths too, but then most of them have never had a bath before. Does your older sister have Alpine on here, because I am sure I am blooging her as well. Heres a vote.

Petite Fleur and mom sneaking in some votes and blogs while our week-end guests went into our médieval town for a brocante which is like an antique show ! Mom gets entertaining & clean up breaks. It is going up to 100°F again (about 40°C) in our area! I must order hay because the pasture needs rain and rotation again! Too hot for it today! Here is a SUNDAY vote!

P.S. from Petite Fleur
I AM SO SORRY ABOUT STARR! There is a 30 yr old mare named DARLING who is being considered for putting down before winter cold! I hate the thought of these things! I just put my best loved labrador retriever down late January and the hole in my heart is not gone! He was close to 14 years and failed fast so it was not a long illness. BUT STILL I cry myself to sleep many nights when no one can hear me.
