Please read this story of me and star!
When we lived back in Virginia i dreamed of a paint, and once we visited Colorado shortly before deciding to move here we went to a ranch in the San Luis Valley and i got to ride a black and white horse that i later found out was Captain. I dreamed of getting him, and once we moved to Colorado, we were are 45 minutes from the ranch. Though we were renting at the time, and we were not able to get a horse. After a while of living there, we were at the local Big R and i picked up an auction paper, Captain was the first one listed and thats how i found out Captain was really his name, he was a paint, and about 5 years old. I begged my parents to get me him, telling them we could board him someplace, and i would ride my bike there every day, even if it was a hour away. Of course we didn't go to the auction, but when ever we were headed to pueblo,co we had to pass the ranch where he used to stay, i almost cried every time we drove past, not knowing if he was there or not. I would look at the fields and pastures and run-in sheds that we pasted, hoping to see him. But i never did. Later we moved to the same town as the ranch, called Fort Garland, we had originally

hoped to move to the same house when we were back in Virginia, we were gonna lease it. But we had decided it was too much work, and if anything it was worse when we finally decided to buy the place. It had a run-in shed behind the garage, the back garage wall was actually one wall of the shed. When we were getting the house inspection, me and my 2 sisters were looking around at it, my oldest sister Erin, always wanted a appy or pinto, so she too was dreaming of a horse in the shed. Once we bought the house, i, with a little of my families help pulled up all the weeds that lead into the barn about 5' deep. Once this was done, we slowly got the painting done on the outside. We ripped down the plastic that was left on the walls, cause even though it was meant to keep mice out, it just allowed a bed for them.
Soon we scooped up the horse poop that was pounded to the dirt floor (for mos of this we used a small bucket, thats how determined i was we had no wheel barrow to haul away the poop!) It was actually starting to look pretty good. After a while, when we were passing the ranch, i saw Captain, tied to the post, saddle on his back, multi-colored tail swatting at flies, i was thrilled, and every day i thought about him, you might have even seen the profile i made for him, but i eventually took it down.
Once we bought some wire cutters, i started taking down the fences around the corral, that were basically just barbwire stuck up, with someone hoping it would look good. One day i went on criagsList and found 2 horses for $500, after a 2 hour or so conversation of emailing back in -forth the last question we asked was if they were broke, and of course, with my luck, they said no. We of course needed a beginner broke horse, since i

never really rode on my own before, so we had to say no. About 213 (no im not kidding, i went through my old emails, i actually emailed about that man horses!) i finally found the one. She wont pretty for sure though, i had emailed about show horses, and trail horses, friesians and a couple ponies, when we finally found a trail horse for cheap, she was named Sally and i think the same person had a paint named Joker. We went to there ranch, they trained, gave trail rides in the mountain, and had over 30 horses there some for sale, and most mares were pregnant. Sally was not the prettiest horse, and after she saw us ride, she deiceded Joker would be too much for us to handle. And to tell you the truth, the only reason we didnt get Sally was because surprisingly my dad wanted a pretty horse and she was too old they said, at 21 years. She too was a Quarter horse though just as Star, the next horse im about to go on about! Like i said, my dad wanted a pretty horse though somehow this scab filled, neglected, somewhat abused, super skinny, broke, chestnut, Quarter horse was the one. My parents tried to find every excuse not to buy her, they did have a few good reasons, she is too skinny, she has scabs, too ugly, too far away, too much, or whatever. I had originally emailed about Jasmin, who i soon found out was not kid safe, ride able, and was "sassy" i told the seller Dan, that we wanted a beginner riding horse, and he emailed me telling me about Star. She was beginner broke, and he had rescued her from a old friend who had went through a divorce and sort of forgot about her so he just left her on pasture, she was way skinny buy the time he got her, but im glad he rescued her. We made plans for her to be delivered the next day. I could barley sleep, but when i was awaken, it wasnt for my mom to tell me that she was here super early in the morning like i hoped, instead, mom was telling me horrible news of how she had already emailed Dan and told him not to bring her, and that she preferred if we got riding lessons first. So after i spent months and hundreds of dollars that i had been saving to fix up the barn, another few weeks looking for horses, and now i had finally found one i could get, she told me i couldnt. Of course i was completley
mad at her. But she finally said she would call Debra a girl i had emailed before at the Dream Catchers Equine Rescue, she had said before she would train a horse named Smokey for us and deliver. A few minutes later, after putting my weird looking dog Krissi on the chain, we got a call. I thought it was Debra returning our message, but it was Dan, saying he was hooking up the

trailer and planned to be here in about 3 hours. My mom asked if i still wanted Star, and of course i said yes. We spent the whole day cleaning, which i was fine within hopes the day would go by faster. They of course took longer than 3 hours, apparently not as anxious as me so i could get Star. I kept a close eye out our glass door out front. To see if any trailers were coming down the road, i think there were 1 or 2 but they didnt come to us, i was so annoyed by it i thought someone was doing it to get my hopes up! Finally we got a call, saying they were near a place called the Old West Cafe, which was past our house in the Trinchera Ranch area. Though my mom directed them back to our house, and they soon came. I was so excited, my mom jokingly told me "you were smiling from ear to ear" we handed them the $500 and he gave me the lead rope. It was very sad for me actually, although she had immediately started eating the grass when she came, she hadnt noticed her "herd" or "family" leaving the driveway and once she saw the trailer rustling down the rode and over the tiny bridge, she started whining and neighing as loud as she could. We had no hay at the time, but my dad was at work, and Big R sold tiny expensive alfalfa bales which we planned to get a couple of later. we put her into the corral that we had built shortly after finding Sally and Joker. And my mom went inside, at first she searched online why she may be doing it, but then just decided to call Dan he said it was because the other horse was in the trailer, and would quiet down eventually. We fed her carrots and

apples until we went to Big R. We came back with 2 alfalfa bales, but saw our neighbor had gave us 2 big grass bales knowing we had none. We paid him back for him, and he gave us the guys number and we got some delivered. I guess it is a pretty small town, because later my mom got a job in Fort Garland working with the hay guy. When it came time to ride, Star was nothing we could handle, and after failed bareback attemps with a halter my mom bought a old western saddle, with a brand new bridle and blanket. Though i think the bridle just made her act worse, so after a while of my parents tracking down her number, we found the owner of Sally and joker, and gave her a call. She soon came to pick up Star, she took Star on the trails for a couple weeks and she came back a brand new horse! For awhile we could ride with a halter, but eventually we had to go back to the bridle. They offered to trade one of there

horses for Star, but we said no. Now Star is a happy and healthy ride-able horse. One day though, 3 horses wondered around and into our yard after cutting a hole in our back fence and bribing them with hay. These horses you could barley touch. The D.O.T said they think they were the same horses who had been roaming since the summer of 2010 and nobody had claimed them, and at that been able to catch them. Though for the harvest festival, some weird clown cars went on the train tracks behind our house. All the horses including Star were on the pasture. First the white and buckskin

charged the fence and galloped down the road, clearly the cars had got them worked up. I was the first one out the door, trying to stop them from going over the bridge but they were to fast, and i knew since they left, the chestnut wasnt too far behind. She tried jumping the fence, but couldnt make it and tore down the top strand of barbwire, though kept running. I put Star in her corral, and we headed off to catch them. In under 20 minutes, they traveled over 10 miles, thats how fast horses gallop! We tried to catch them, but it was hunting season, and they were on hunting ground with lots of trees and bushes, and we were just pushing them further back, into the trees, and they would easily get shot. They may be dead, may have been caught, or they may be running free still, and even though there no mustangs, they still are free spirits, and i always hope they will wonder back here eventually but for now its unknown.

Hi, thanks for the vote, left you one. Ok, I didn't ride yesterday. For some reason, when I got to the barn I got really tired really fast. I could hardly keep my eyes open! I decided probably not a good thing to ride when I am that tired. Now, the really hot weather is here. I am not a hot weather gal. So, it will be awhile now before I get to ride. I will clip him up and give him a bath! I was just on facebook, and the horsechannel posted a pic of Toby and congratulated him on being July's top horse! How cool is that?! If you are on facebook send me a friend request! My pic is a really cool looking blue eye!

Good morning Star here's my daily vote for you. My sister Jeanne was always a dare devil. When we were small Iwas only a couple of years old which put Jeanne at around 6 any way we lived in a mill camp a long ways away from the big city of Eugene. The one lane gravel road winding around made it like 40 miles. Jeanne would find a small piece of rope and pull some grass and try to get the neighbors horses to come up to the wood fence they would come up but always kept their bodies where she couldn't get on. We moved and a few years later our uncle bought Sugar Babe not to much later he bought another horse a Palimino they said she was a retired bull dogging horse she was fantastic with kids. Jeanne would get both Sugar Babe and Dixie (the Palomin) running side by side and then she would jump from horse to horse no bridles, halters, saddles just running free anyway it was really something our parents seen what she was doing and grounded her our uncle seen her and told the fols she got more grounding and every time she'd sneak back out out and ride the horses like she wanted not as our parents wanted.
