Yesterday was a much better day than last Wednesday. I picked Austin up at school. We went to Phoenix and picked up the wedding dress, met my friend for dinner and made it to school for the parent teacher conference. When we got home I went out to the corral and gave Lightning and Star hugs and hay. It's even sprinkled some rain. Lightning hugs and a Thursday vote.

Thundering toward me from the darkness, the massive beast was barreling down on me. My very soul froze as heavy hoofbeats came nearer. Emerging from the darkness, the beast, in a cloud of dust, stopped within feet of me.... Lightning was having his own playday. I'd let him out of the corral and he was loving every minute of it. Why do these times always happen when I don't have the camera and it's too dark to take pictures anyway? The dogs had been with me but disappeared in a hurry. Love and a vote from Lightning and Joyce.

Today Blossom and I did some cross-country schooling, backyard, "no jumping allowed" style. Since Blossom has continued to stay sound as I increase her training I have introduced trotting/cantering poles. So I decided to do something more exciting today. My sister set poles around the yard and we negotiated them as though they were jumps. We even dressed up in our gear- safety vest,Blossom's X-country boots, etc. Blossom seemed to really enjoy our pretend shcooling day and practically begged for more after short up-hill spurts of gallop. So it was a success, even when Blossom acually jumped one on accident ;) I think she will be ready to start jumping for real again soon.

Hi! Blossom has been keeping me very busy, along with school. But things are settling down a bit. Blossom went lame again soon after I blogged last. So we had the vet out and she did a lameness test. She concluded that it was a upper stifle injury with fluid on her hock, so she gave her som medication. She is slowly getting better. I had to walk her out every day and then I could finally trot. After about 1-2 months no riding and a week of walking, trotting is really fun! So now Blossom has to wear fancy (and expensive!) shoes to give her support. But she is continuing to stay sound.

Hey! Sorry it has been forever since I have been on HC, but I finally had a spare moment to blog back. Blossom and I had riding camp last week. It was fun and the highlights of the week were- When Blossom bolted out of the dressage arena at a nearby showground, and galloped untill I was finally able to stop her :o When Blossom acually jumped a bunch of cross country jumps while we were doing some XC schooling :) And our 11 mile trail ride, crossing water and galloping up the trails! ;) She was over all very good. And I found out that she works very well when we are in a group.

Come visit me, Blossom.

Hey! I have been so busy! Blossom was good at her last 2 shows, but we still got eliminated for refusing too many jumps, but she is improving. I helped out at horse camp last week, it was so hot!! But Blossom is at home now. She seems happy to be back, but she misses the other horses. The Farrier came by yesterday since she threw her shoe, and we found out she has an absess and I have to soak her foot for a week or 2. So that means, no riding :( I do a little ground work with her everyday and I am working on desensitizing her to fake flowers, plastic bags, and all sorts of other stuff so she can still learn while I can't ride.

HC friends.. Many of you know me, and if you don't I hope we will become friends. My name is Joey. My Mule, Betsy is running for August HOTM. Since we have been on HC people have asked questions, and been curious about Betsy. I thought it would be fun to leave a daily blog about mules. My intent is to have fun, and possibly answer some questions about these amazing equines. Not to say mules are better or less than a horse. Personally I love all equine creatures:)I want to thank Frances & Fancy for some of the mule humor, Paula & PF, Marion & Indy, Barbara & Shawnie, for their support of Betsy's run. And last but not least, Shari, Daisy & Levy for being such good friends and supporting the Girls. I have some personal reasons for wanting this honor for Betsy. One, in short is that I was injured on a ride. While other horses and mules walked away as my friends were attending to me, Betsy stayed right there with me. I think she knew I was in trouble. So I hope you will have fun reading the blogs and who knows...We may have a Mule of the month in Auguust. Again, thanks to all my friends on HC. All votes will be greatly appreciated....Joey & Betsy

Hey! I've been really busy recentally. First, two of our cats dissapered :( so I moved the other 2 inside. Then Blossom started drooling like crazy, and I found out it is from a fungus that grows on clover. Now the new boots I got her are rubbing on the cut she got at the horse trails. But the swelling went back down so I think she is OK. She has been jumping really well recently and I think I finally found a bit that works with her. We have a show Wednesday and another on the 26, Then we are bringing her home. It is really hot here, in the 90s!! and there's been some really loud thunderstorms! How did the horse go? I'm sure it was lots of fun!

Hey! Blossom has finally gotten pretty much over that little bucking phase. All I had to do was really kick her on when she bucked. Easier said than done! I had a lesson on Wed. and we practiced the dressage test I need to know for the show, Intro test A. It's not that hard so we should do well :) Then on Thurs. I had a group lesson and we did 4 bounces in a row! A bounce is jumps that are so close together that you land and take off again without any strides in between! It looked scarier than it felt and my mom was so suprised that Blossom did it that she didn't take pictures! I looked up the place where the show is (fenridgefarm.com) and was able to look at some of the jumps on the maiden course. Yikes! I hope Blossom is in a jumping mood!

Hey! I havent been on here in forever! I've spent a lot of time riding and just being outside. the weather has gotten all wet again, so I am glad the stable has an indoor arena! I have signed up for a show on the 30th this one has dressage, jumping, and cross country, I am hoping that Blossom will jump better this time ;) But I do think she is improving. This weekend we were jumping 3 in a row and it was a little high and the spaces in between were a little off so when she triped over the 1st one I was going to let her pull out since she was stumbling, but she went through anyways! Mabey refusing Isn't as fun as it used to be or maybe she's got a new trick up her sleeve. But today she threw some of the biggest bucks ever, but I think she was uncomfortable for some reason. I have a lot of practice for our next show!
1st of all- I love your new pic! It is amazing! Next, the good thing is that the girl hardly ever comes to the stable, so I don't run into her much and I can pet Felix all I want:) I hope Freckles gets over that, it can be scary and annoying. I always heard that you turn a horse in circles when they do that, but I am not to sure about that. I hope you had fun at the party!

Hey! I'm sorry that I havn't been on here in a lond time. I've been really busy. The weather is nice and I've been riding alot. Blossom threw some bucks a couple days ago, but she finally quit. She is doing well and we are thinking about another show at the end of May. We practiced some crosscountry jumps (a log and a tire jump) the other day. She would't jump the log at first, but acually went over the tire jump the first time. Then she dicided to go under a tree branch, not so lucky for me as I went through the branch! My face is all brused up!(Thanks Blossom) Anyways, Felix was sold to one of the girls at the stable I don't like. I try ro be nice to her but her parents treat her like a princess and so you can tell, she acts very bratty. Poor Felix, I don't think he likes her either. I may not be on here very often, but you are often in my thoughts!

Hi! It was misting a bit when I arrived at the stable today. The weather has been very nice recently. There was a different vet at the stable looking at Felix's teeth. I was worried since this was a new vet. Well, I tacked up Blossom and was riding her in the indoor. well, sitting on her and thinking was more like it! I have become kinda attatched to Felix recently. Then they led him in the ring and started lunging him, thats when I realized why that weird lady was hanging around him, she was trying him out! He is for sale! I have toyed with the idea of buying him myself, but I don't have any money :( I hope they don't like him for some reason, but that is being selfish. Hopefully he will go to a good home. I want to do some jumping with Blossom as soon as it dries up.

Hey!!! Well today was an exciting day! I had my first horse show! First I get up early and I accidentally snap the laces on my old boots. I was planning on wearing those... but luckily I had my very stiff, new boots! I had washed Blossom yesterday evening. It took almost 2 hours to get her pretty much white again. Of course, I put a sheet on her! But, she somhow got manure up under her blanket, on both sides. So she had several manure green spots on her, too bad spot removers don't work on her! She loaded just fine even with the other horses. I was able to un-load her as well today, which she has always been a little too excited for me to do. She stood for hours tied to the trailer with a hay bag. Now that alone is AWSOME! It got a little confusing as I was about to tack up. My parents arived and I couln't find my trainer and they were calling out names. Blossom was very excited so we had a long slow, warm up. She wouldn't jump untill we took it apart and set the poles on the ground, then she went over the warm up jumps with some extra efort! There was one other girl in our group who was trying to get her pony to jump at a show for the first time. She went before me and was eliminated for refusing the first jump 3 times. I was so nervous. Well, Blossom goes and does the same thing. I was expecting some refusals but I was kinda upset at that point. So I go back to the warm up place and jump some more and think about our next round. The other girl is eliminated for the same thing again. She was really upset and later some one told me she said she was never jumping again, poor girl. But I was determined to keep positive and not get frustrated. We make a better aproach but she still refuses and I take her around and talked to her as we came again. She acually went over! oops! what about the next jump? we got eliminated for refusing that one. I was so happy she jumped! Then for our last round, she jumped the first one strait away and jumped the second one after 1 refusal. But she wouldn't go over the 3rd. But she was good, what can you expect for her 1st show? I probably could have forced her over some jumps if I were wearing spurs, but the whole point of this show was for the experiance, she needed to take things at her own pace for now. In a few more shows, I will think about pushing her, but we need a solid foundation first. I can't wait to try again! I got some pics, the ones on the grass are warm up.

Hey! Well, things are getting interesting! On Thursday, I went to my lesson ( typically it started raining about an hour and a half before!) It was really busy with every one getting ready for the show. I rode Beauty, and all the horses were antsy since there was some distant thunder. First of all, a horse named Crescent was bucking, then he got really mad and started doing jump-bucks!!! So his rider gave up for the night. Then Lauren, she's in my riding class, and her horse Pheonix were cantering a 20 meter circle.Then Pheonix's front legs went down. Lauren dived off and Pheonix ended lying on his side! I was holding my breath! But he stood back up. There was a lot of commotion and we didn't ride much more. I talked to my instructor and she said that she thought the best way to go would be to go to a show on the 24 with Blossom. I had wanted to go with Blossom in the first place so I was excited. The big problem is- my mom will be in Colorado that weekend. We'll just have to see haw it goes. My mom and I went and talked to michelle on Friday. Now she is going to pick Blossom up and take her to her stable on Monday. I was expecting to board her at the beggining of May, so this is way early! I miss her already and she hasn't even left yet! I have to get her stuff ready. The worst thing about her being there is I have to have someone take me :( But it is only 10 minutes away. Blossom will have it good there. We get daily mucking, feeding, turnout, and they will give her her supplaments for free. There is one outdoor arena and one covered arena, trails and a cross country course. I can't wait to go trail riding!!!

I finally had time to upload some 2 years together pictures on the bottom of the page!
