How are you doing? Wow, it's been a long, long time since I blogged properly on here! This has been the craziest summer ever. I'm always busy and somewhat insane but I think I've taken both to a new level because I've been insanely busy. :)

Without boring you with too many details I'll just say that I've had to take several road trips for work and the past 3 weeks I've been literally working day and night to meet a deadline. But, it's good to keep busy, right? I just miss my nighttime blogging.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Both Prince and Eddie won hotd recently(ish). I was gone when Prince won and in between trips when Eddie won. But it sure was nice to read all the congrats and to see them in the spotlight again.

Pippin is doing is great as are the big boys. I see them once a week to drive and I really like driving a lot. I still wish I could ride but I'm happy that not only do I get to spend time with horses but I get to drive them.

I take Pippin out as much as I can. Not every day like we're used to because I'm so busy but at least several times a week, even if it's just a walk.

Just the other evening I took him out for a cart ride with Melian. He hadn't been out for about a week and was feeling the need to stretch his little legs.

We were going at a nice trot for a mile or so. Once he warmed up properly he wanted to go faster so I set him at a fast canter. That got Melian interested in a race. They love racing each other!

So, she started teasing him by zigzagging back and forth under his nose and he chased her trying to nip at her bony butt.

Suddenly she did a rollback and accidentally rolled back onto her butt. She was SO mad. I think she felt embarrassed and she let out a huge growl. It was plain that she blamed Pippin and she let him know.

That got him going and he took off at an earth shattering gallop. It was the fastest I have ever seen him pull a cart. It felt like it was going to explode into a million tiny parts. Wow, that was fun! He ran like that for over a mile. What a rush!

That had me smiling and he got a nice bounce to his step. I'm sure you agree that there's nothing like a good ride or drive to bring things back into perspective.

Thanks for sticking by me even though I've not been around. I'm getting caught up on my blogs today (I hope) but I'm not sure how often I can blog. Still lots of work to do.

Here's a vote for you and I hope you're having a nice horsey weekend.

PS Thanks to all who voted for Pippin the Amazing Grazers contest. He won first place in the VHS!

PPS I thought that this was cute enough to mention. The other night we were watching Olympic showjumping and Melian saw the horses on the screen. She loves running with the horses and she growled and tried to catch one as he went over the jump. :)

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

Thank you all so much for Shadowfax's glorious reign as King of the Horse Channel for a month. It was so nice to see him in the spotlight and I just wish I had had more time to be around for you.

This was his last day but he has his badge now and it looks great! I've uploaded a couple more photos of my two favourite stallions. I hope you enjoy them.

Thanks again for your support and help. I couldn't have done it without you!

magan, a 13 yr old former student, is helping me with horse camp this month. she quit english and is doing barrel racing now. i asked her if she'd like to ride buttercup a few times a week to exercise her. she came the past few mornings to help. i may try to use buttercup in my camp next week. we'll see how she settles into it. she just likes to trot instead of walk. i'm teaching her to walk or halt when the outside rein is pulled. i rode sing this morning. just an easy hack. it's 80 at 7am so it's hard to work too much.

Hi!
I love the name, Big Ben! He is very handsome! Scout is a rescue too. He started out being shown in Roadster classes and then ended up as a working Amish horse for the last 4 years before we found him on his way to slaughter at auction. He is loving life again and we are spoiling him. Left you a vote. Take care!

Come visit me, Scout.

It was another hot day. I let the girls out of the corral late in the afternoon. Sadie was at the backdoor trying to open it, again. She and Star got lots of carrots. When Sadie realized I was out of carrots, she turned that big butt to me to scratch. I found the right places, too. She stuck her bottom lip out and enjoyed it. So silly. Hugs and a vote

Trotting by with a Wednesday vote!
It was a great day for riding, but Luna was being kind of a brat. I guess she didn't want to trail ride today, because she was testing me the whole way LOL! But we finally finished the ride with no major incidents.
I left you a vote; have a horsey day!

hellooooooo!!!!!!
i hope everyone had a wonderful and well rested weekend! first off i just want to thank everyone soooo much for juanita's HOTD!! it really means alot!! you all are like my third family hahah! you're always so supportive and caring and you always brighten my day :)


** GREAT NEWS!!! ** Ziggy is %100 sound and ready for shows again!! i went over to my trainer's new barn where they're keeping him and three other horses for the first time on friday and saddled zig up as well for the first time since his injury. I just walked him around the outside of the main barn for the first like 10 or 15 minutes since the barn's not too big haha and then my trainer said that he looked great so she decided and asked me to make him trot and see what happened. he was alittle slow at first but then he started trotting beautifully like he normally does!! he didn't seem to have a problem with that either so i trotted him around the barn for about 10 minutes with no trouble so then my trainer hopped up on the fence and told me to trot zig around the the big pasture surrounding the little pasture around his barn. and MY GOODNESSSSSS he was ready to GOOO hahah! i started off at a nice steady trott up the slightly inclined pasture hill and then on the way back down....BAMMM he shot out like a rocket! hahah he took off cantering with me and it took all my strength to pull him down to a trot again! lol you could tell that he was so ready to just let loose and run! he took off cantering with me almost every time we headed back down the hill lol i had to REAAALLY shorten my reins with him, and when he was trotting down the hill he was going sooo strong and i bouncing all over the place :P It was so much fun riding him again. It reminded me of how much i miss riding him and how responsive he is as well lol compared to juanita he's a saint :) anyways after his ride he was still sound and jess, my trainer, said that he even looked sound when he cantered that little bit with me on him hahah. she said that he looks good and happy and that he is now free to go to shows again!! not jumping yet but walk trot shows and possibly cantering by july for my first show, he just has to get used to the work again, slowly but surely! im just so happy that he's better! over joyed actually hahah! i put up photos from my ride on friday on zigger's page so go by and check em out! so i won't be riding juanita much anymore :( except maybe for jumping at first in case zig isn't ready for that but last sunday was my last lesson on her. anyways that's all the good news that i have to share with you all! i thank you all for all the prayers and support that you've given ziggy since his injury, it has really seemed to help! thank you sooo much! im leavin a vote and i hope all is well with you!

love,
sierra, sandy, ziggy, and juan

p.s. sandy's 31st birthday is coming up this week!!
