PLEASE VOTE FOR PASSION ON MAY 22ND!
I was 10 years old when I met Passion and at the time I didn't REALLY know him. In fact, I almost despised him. Until one day, I was told to ride him. I was disappointed at first, been when he looked into my eyes and his ears shot forward and his expression full of love, I melted. Why hadn't I realized it before? Passion and I are meant for each other. After just a week of riding him, he became known as "Rach's Baby" around the farm. I now look at him as my soul mate, not scornfully. After a few months, we participated in a mock show in English Eq/Pleasure. We placed 3rd in Equitation and 6th in Pleasure. Two months later, we competed in a real horse show in the same disciplines and placed 1st in Eq and 2nd in Pleasure. All this time since September 2009, I've loved him and ALWAYS will. Three months after our huge accomplishments, I leased him for two months. In the middle of August one day, I was riding him. I felt his legs move in a wrong angle and I got of then and there. If I hadn't done this, he would've continued on in pain for me. He would've kewp going until he dropped. As I led him out of the arena I heard someone call after me, "He really tried for you." I walked him up to the barn, just about in tears. The barn manager rushed out and asked what was wrong. I told her he was limping. Limping so, so bad. She assured me it wasn't my fault at all and that I should not blame myself. He had gotten in a fight with Susie the night before. For eight months- EIGHT MONTHS- he had an abscess in his hoof. Then one day, out of the blue, he healed and I rode him. I rode him for the next three weeks in much caution. After that, we were back to ourselves. We were a team again! (Oh! Did I not mention that when Passion's sad so am I, and when he's happy, I am too?)
One day, his owner and the barn owner came down to see him be ridden. This was only two weeks after he healed. He was great! When the lesson was done, I walked him up. The barn owner suggested that I show him in a month. I wanted to reject, knowing- KNOWING- it would be pushing but instead just nodded. When I let him loose, I wanted to cry I was so happy! Four weeks later, I cantered him. He hadn't cantered in TWO YEARS! And I had been the one to do it, because everyone knew (and knows) when it came to Passion, it was Rachel's (My) business. This was a HUGE improvement! A few months before this (I cantered him on May 7, 2011), my Memere passed away who I loved VERY VERY VERY ETERNALLY much, and this is when my family fell apart. No one could be strong for me, No one could comfort me. No one could make me feel happy or make me laugh. No could tell me, "Hey, you know what Rachel? No matter what-NO MATTER WHAT-, everything is going to be okay. No one could, but Passion. He has been true to me for so very long and has become the only one I can run to. He is my best friend, my soul mate. PLEASE VOTE FOR HIM ON MAY 22ND! HE REALLY DESERVES IT!

P.S. Left a vote!

The Happy Horses,

Rachel, Easthampton, MA.

Hi Nightmare, here's a vote for ya. That's pretty neat then. I had a couple of young girls, like four of them in one of my ski school classes a few years back. Their ski lessons with me counted as a class work, and at the end of eight weeks of lessons, I got to grade them on their improvements in skiing. Their moms said that this was their gym time if they were in school. I thought that was very cool.

Grace is LAME ~cries~ I feel just awful for her :(.
I was working on ground work with her. Just walk, trot, stop rest, change directions repeat....stop, rub the rope all over her. Switch to whip, do it all over again. And she tripped. She was trotting nicely, then just stumbled. Didn't fall, and kept going... I checked and she was not limping. then I was working on keeping her head behind my shoulder while we walked. She only needed correction once. but when we got to the barn. limp, limp, limp. -.- the whole time I was grooming her her right rear leg was cocked. I thought crud. Felt it, yep heat -.-. She got it hosed down for 20 min. This morning it looks swollen. sigh, waiting to call the vet, they aren't open yet. My first horse! so the first time I have had a lame horse! Im like so nervous about it I feel so bad for her!!!!! :( Leaving a vote and hoping your day goes better then mine!

Come visit me, Grace.

Happy Birthday Nightmare!
Hi to all. Hope everyone's doing well, animals, too. Rick's doing so good. Hard to believe he was in such a horrible accident. The day before the accident, he had brought hay home. Sadie was out of the corral. After unloading the hay, he started driving the pickup toward where he had the trailer parked to hitch it up. He was taking it into town the next morning to loan it to someone so they wouldn't have to rent one. When he pulled forward, Sadie started running after the pickup and then ran around to the front shaking her head no. Austin and I laughed as Rick stopped and asked her what her problem was. Thought about it last night. Do horses have premonitions? She was probably just being her silly self. Prayers, hugs and a vote.

Happy Birthday, Nightmare!
Sorry I missed it yesterday. But I thought I'd wish you a late Happy Birthday still. What did you do for Nightmare's Birthday?
It snowed some last night. Ugh! Thankfully it all melted by late this morning. Yaeh!
Well, gotta go. Hope you have a great day!

Austin and I put the tarp up. It was too long, so I folded it in half length wise. I hope if Sadie doesn't tear it down, the dust storms and high winds won't, either. It's secured with nails and twine. I was careful not to make any holes in it. ........Anxious to find out who our April HOTM is. All 3 runners were great. Love and a "have a beautiful horsey weekend" vote.

Had a nice little ride on Sadie. today. Thinking about putting the tarp up on the west side of the shade. Afraid Sadie will tear it down. She's a busy body and loves to get into things that don't concern her. Teaching her the word NO. I have to use it on her alot..... Prayers, love and a vote.

Hi Nightmare, here's a vote for ya. You sure look really nice and shinny in you're new picture. Love it.
Well, it could be an interesting trailer ride tomorrow to go and get Indy. We might be getting a little snow/mix over night. But then nothing all day. but tomorrow night, look out, a Nor-easter is moving in. Could be a foot of snow they said. And no, it's not an April fools joke, it's for real. We had one in the 90's on April fools day and it dumped almost 3 feet of snow on us. Not fun at all.
But I can't wait to have my baby boy home and see him all the time. ♥
