How We Met

Well it is really a long story. But I got a job at a stable and my boss and I became friends rather than boss and employee. She brought me to look at about 15 horses because I have wanted my own horse for 7 years now. I saw Flicka and she looked terrible. She was about 300 pounds underweight and she had crazy lice. Her hooves were in really bad condition, almost cracked all the way up to the coronet band. So I thought I would look at some other horses because I didn;t think this little black mare had much to offer. I looked at some gorgeous hunters but for some reason my mind always went back to that skinny little mare. I asked my boss (Meridith) if I could go work with the little black mare and we ended up going to see her the next day. There was one other horse at that same farm I was looking at too and she was a gorgeous little chestnut thoroughbred who was already completely trained. I rode the chestnut mare first and it was fun, but I had a better feeling about the black mare that was dangerously skinny. I got to round pen her then they asked me if I wanted to ride her. I was hesitant but I got on and she gave her all for me. She didn't really understand everything I asked of ehr but she really tried. She hadn't even been brought out of the pasture for about a year. When I went and rode the other horse, the black mare was still in the round pen. I rode by her and she just started whinnying, like she didnt want me to look at any other horses. So I brought my mom out to look at the two horses and she said she had a really good feeling about the black mare and the chestnut mare just wasnt the same. Even though we knew we had so much more work ahead of us with her, we didn't care. I was excited to get to work. We bought Flicka and my mom picked out a horse from the same farm for herself (even thought im training her) and Flicka has put on all the weight and Ive been working with her about 4 times a week. We later found out that Flicka was 8 months pregnant. So we got an extra horse in the deal! Flicka is due to have her baby any day now and Im excited to see what this miracle baby is going to be like..

I can't wait to see Grey. Last Sunday I put a red ribbion in his forelock for Valentine's Day!!! He looked so cute!!! I will have to post some pictures!!! It was really funny because he got rented to big mancho men all day. They all liked the bow though :) I got to ride Romeo last weekend. He was being bad and they asked me to ride him before he went out to pony ring. We were really busy all day because everyone decided to come out for a trail ride on Valentine's Day.
I voted and please continue to vote for Grey. I really want him to get HOTM in August. He really deseves it!!!
Thanks so much,

The storm is over! I think :) Any way here we are again with a lovely Saturday vote for you.
This man had too many horses and couldn't feed them all so this past Wednesday he gave my youngest brother a litle paint yearling filly. She is underweight but she is very pretty. My brother is very excited and I am happy for him. Well that is what's happening with us, how about YOU?

Hi, thanks for the vote, left you one. Late again today, sorry. I have a good excuse. I got to ride Toby in my new english saddle for the very first time! I didn't fall off, whew! I was a little nervous, but I did walk and trot. I didn't post, just sat it for now, I have to start somewhere. It was fun, and I look forward to riding again soon. Toby looks magnificent in his saddle! I think he liked it, he seemed to move a lot better in it. Sue helped me out a lot today, and when I was done, she got on Toby and rode him around for awhile! She had a lot fun, and said Toby has come a long way since the last time she rode him a year ago!

Hi, thanks for the vote, left you one. Sorry I am so late today. The Kirby guy came to the door earlier to clean my carpet for free, so he did, just took almost 2 hours.

My english saddle came today! I am soooooooooo excited! I took it out to the barn to put it on Toby, but they put the horse out today. Man, the mudd was terrible. I just didn't have enough time to get him, clean him, tack him, untack, and put him back out. So, tomorrow I will go out to try it, and ride in it. Can hardly wait! I will take pics and post them. So I will probably blog when I get back in the afternoon to early evening! Have a great day.

Hi, thanks for the vote, left you one. I got to ride yesterday, and he did really good. No attitude at all. We have come a long way in the last year. A year ago he didn't want to move or keep moving. Now, he will move, but doesn't want to keep moving. So yesterday every time he stopped on his own, I would turn him the other direction, and canter off. Only had to do it 3 times, before he finally decided to just keep moving until I told him to stop! LOL!!! Finally!!! The farrier was out first thing this morning. Toby got his trim. She said his hooves look really great, so much better than a year ago! However, he still doesn't like having his hooves trimmed! Stinker! Have a great week everyone!

Hi everyone! I'm very sorry about my extended vacation from HC. I didn't expect to be gone so long! Well not much has happened, but I have gotten to spend time with the horses... no riding though. After the snow melted, it rained, so it just has not been a good winter for riding. Well Thank you to all who voted for my horses! I plan to leave blogs every couple to few days from now on. Maybe when I have more time I'll get on daily but we'll just have to wait and see.Talk to you soon, love you all!

P.s. Ferina's mom Chandler will be back today so make sure to leave a vote for Ferina!!!

Fancy is starting Monday with a vote for you. Stay warm and have a pleasant day. Just one more month of the cold cold weather. Then we can get out, love our horses, and ride. Yippeee! I love riding at Morrow Mtn State Park here in NC, the trails are nice and the scenery is lovely. I can imagine the first time I ride Fancy there! Please, tell me about your favorite place to ride, and do you plan to ride there this spring?

How are you doing? I finally rode today. Yipeee! I hadn't ridden in 5.5 weeks and it sure felt good to be back on a horse again. I was going through withdrawals but at least I was able to drive Pippin in that time. He gave me my horsey fix.

I also have to admit that I think that the break was good for my leg that Prince injured a year ago. It actually seems to have got stronger during this time and less painful. So, that was really nice to find out. I probably should have taken a break after the injury but I couldn't bear the thought of not riding. And now I had to.

How's Flicka doing? I prefer riding but driving is so much fun too. I've taken Pippin out loads of times and I always bring Melian with me. She's great incentive to Pippin to go faster. He loves chasing her.

How's your weather? It's unseasonably warm here. We should be having temps in the teens but it's been just above freezing at night and even up to the 50s during the day. Such a nice surprise and really weird since the tropical south is getting freezing weather.

Pippin has been on the HC for over three years now. I think he's the oldest active member! And he also won the Virtual Contest. I couldn't believe it. It was such a nice surprise. Well, here's a vote for you and I hope you have a great weekend.

Hey! Haven't talked to you in a while!
Hi! I'm sorry we haven't been on in forever! Our computer has a virus so sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't! Having a horse really takes a lot of time! haha wish it took more! Who needs school anyway? Well Summer and I have been doing wonderful. How are you guys? Summer got his feet trimmed today and stood perfectly. He was such a good boy. And the farrier said he couldn't see any founder lines! Good news! Have I told you about the training I'm trying with him? hmm I don't think so. Sorry if I have and I'm repeating myself! Well we're doing the whole natural horsemanship thing. Which is working perfectly. Summers old trainer was into the whole cowboy up I'm incharge you WILL submit to me even if it hurts kinda thing. I'm more I wanna be your friend and I want you to listen to me because you respect me and wanna be my friend to. Not because you think you might get hurt. So I have been building his trust from the ground up. Starting with lunging. When he first came on the lunge line he wouldn't canter at all. When I asked him to canter he would trot really really fast until he tripped himself. We are now using leg wraps. :) He's really a body language horse. And if you make it clear to him what you want you won't have any problems. He really wants to please. So when he was on the lunge line I wanted to teach him to stop and eventually switch directions with voice commands. So when I wanted him to stop I would say woah (lol in my deepest man voice) and take a big step in front of him. He would usually slow and eventually stop but sometimes he wouldn't pay attention and would just waltz right past. but since I just lunge him in a halter without a chain i would give him a quick jerk with the lunge line. Now I can get him to stop completly without coming in to me just by saying woah. And i can use the lunge line to pull his head around the other way and switch my hand to the other side and get him to switch direction! Did I mention we don't use a whip! So yes. I would say we are coming along beautifully in that.

We have also been doing a lot with showmanship just like to build a relationship I guess. His leading manners are okay but he still kinda practicully leaps in your lap like a puppy and says hold me hold me! And wouldn't trot in hand at all. We have been using what is actually a kids play lasso. But we make a halter out of it and it's kinda stiff so it puts pressure where we need it. Right at the pole so he'll bring his head down. I can just put a little pressure ( i can litterally do it with my pinky! I hardly do anything!) and he will drop his head. He will also trot in hand after just me clucking to him! I hope I'm not boring you but I'm really excited!

We have been working quite a bit on clipping too which is something that he hasn't done at all before. I started by letting him smell the clippers while they are turned off. I have the eensy weensy no cord battery quiet ones. i rub them all over his body with the back. the first
