How We Met

When I was about ten my grandpa told me that I was getting to be a really good rider and that he would give me a horse. He generously gave me a choice between Danny Boy and his younger brother Felix. Me, of course being thrilled, picked the horse who had the prettier name, since I never saw him before he was given to me. I was dreaming of a little foal, barely weaned, him and me playing together as best friends. Well I dreamed for two years before I finally got him, and when I did, he was a unbroken, terrified-of-to- uch horse who wouldn't let you brush him. Right from the moment I saw him though, I knew he was just a scared little four-year-old who had never been exposed to a human/horse relationship. So I worked with him a little every day until I could walk up to him and rub him on the forehead without him knowing what I was doing. After a year, he was started and was getting pretty good with the saddle and bridle, but still gave a little trouble with bridling. Eventually that year I began to ride him on my own, both of us learning. One summer he gave Dad a lot of trouble bridling though. He would rear against the rope and put his head over the fence when you tried to put a bit in his mouth. One day Dad got so fed up with it that he finally forced Danny I to accepting the bridle. It worked well too, he nevr gives me any trouble any more, in fact, he will turn his head to me and open his mouth to be bridled. The memory of that probably keeps him in check. Now we are working with Monty Roberts' "join up" techniques to improve both our skills and our togetherness.

Voted ^.^
Heres a vote for Danny Boy! I really like his name. Your story about how you met was very interesting. Danny reminds me of my first horse; She was just a scared little filly from an auction. No matter how a horse starts out they can always make a caring owner proud!
Also thanks for your vote! Romeo is a very talented young horse, and I'm glad to be his owner!

Take care,
Romeo and Momo

Weekend Vote!

I’ve been offline for a couple days, lots of stuff going on. Thursday had a quick ride, Friday I had to get a cavity filled at the dentist ? Now my tooth is killing me! Lol, and to top it off, I’m sick. Hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow so I can ride again.

Thanks so much to My Dancing Lakota (#208088) for vote 200! It is much appreciated! Remember to please keep voting for Lilly also in the VHS for Show Scenes and Glamour!

Hope you all are having a great weekend! VOTED! (:

XOXOXO

PERSONAL COMMENT

hello beautiful horse heres a vote

SPROCKET AND FRIENDS UPDATE

Sprocket – Had a lesson today tough I was really shaky and feverish the hole ride so we didn't do uc we were going to jump our first 3ft course but my trainer took one look at me and decided that 3ft jumps were not the best idea at that time so we worked on collected trot, extended trot and did a 3 jump 6in course it wasn't very exciting :( After wen I was in the pasture with Sprocket I went over to sit with Fawn and he got ad so he grabbed his halter and lead and came over and shook them in front of my face when I just laughed he walked around and some of the other horses started to follow him to see what he had.

Fawn – Is doing really well got shoes on her front feet so she can actually walk without every step causing pain. She has been venturing further into the pasture to get grass. Also she is filling out nicely thanks to the diet of beet pulp and senior feed I’ve been giving her, and know that she is in altogether better health she is becoming a much nicer horse to be around.

Sizzler – Fed Siz a little safe choice then took hi into the arena he was really curious about the horde in the paddock near the arena, I think he's lonely. But then I scratched his forehead and withers and he got down and rolled just 8ft from me. Yay he's starting to trust me.


QUESTION OF THE DAY

Sorry out of questions.

Come visit me, Sizzler - if only voting once please vote Sprock, Golden Sprocket & Fawn - Please vote Sprock if giving just one vote.
