Sorry it has taken so long for me to get back to you! I have been really busy.
I had a bucking episode with Paragon yesterday. I was trying out a new saddle and when I asked him to trot, and in response, he started bucking! I got his head up and dismounted and called my grandpa who is basically my trainer. He said to put his old saddle on and try again to see if he does the same thing. I walked him over to the hitching post and switched saddles. Then I mounted and gave him the cue to walk. He immediatly started bucking, even worse that the first time! So it definetly wasn't the saddle hurting him. I called my grandpa back and he said he would come over and ride him that evening. When he got here, he saddled him up and rode him around. He rode holding the reins about half way up his neck with some contact, not pulling, but just contact. He explained that in order to buck, a horse has to get his head down. If you don't let him get his head down, he can't buck! Paragon tried to buck a few times, unsucessfully. Grandpa got him to go around his "scary" corner, but not without Paragon throwing a big tempertantrum and trying to buck. Then I got on and copied Grandpa. It went well. Grandpa said that Paragon is the kind of horse that needs a firm and knowledgeable hand that won't let him get away with things.
Indy is growing fast and getting big. He is such a sweet boy! He really has the temperament of his mother, Ima Darling. Hope you have a good week! Voted:)

I know right, long thick manes are so pretty! I read somewhere that washing your horse's mane and tail twice a week (but JUST the mane and tail, not the whole body) can help them grow long and thick and pretty. Also, you're just basically supposed to brush their mane and tail with your fingers... using a comb can break the hairs and make it look yucky :( But once you can run your fingers through without getting any tangles, I guess then you can use a comb, though I don't see the point, LOL. I don't really use any special products, just fly spray and mane detangler and this stuff to put on Lady's hooves to make them healthier. Her and Beau have hooves that crack really easy. When I put the stuff on Lady's hooves they turn black as night, it's so weird! Haha.

Have any fun plans today? I'm going out to the horse rescue (hopefully) tomorrow and then again on Thursday to work with the city mission kids for the last time. I still haven't decided if I want to take my friend's horse, she is SO beautiful but I'm not sure if I can afford it or complete all of her training. I've been praying about it though, and asking lots of horsey people what they think, so that should help ;)

Voted!

I know what you mean! My dad knows nothing about horses and for my birthday he got me off-brand fly spray... I was like oh...thanks...LOL. Oh well, he tried! Hope you have fun with your family!

I am so excited but nervous! My horsey friend, Amber, wants to give me her horse - GIVE me! :D Since I don't have a horse of my own, she said "I believe every girl needs to have a horse." The only thing is this -- I don't have a "real" job, I don't have a place to keep her besides board her, I don't have a trailer and I don't have tack. I know, quite a few problems. LOL. She's also not broke. She is fifteen years old and she's not broke... it's because Amber has had her since she was five years old and Amber doesn't know how to train horses... now training horses is my dream, but I've never started completely from scratch before. I have done hundreds of hours of research and I know I could probably pull it off with us both learning a lot along the way, but I'm not sure. What do you think? Does it sound like a good idea? Tell me what you honestly think, please :) Voted!

Went riding yesterday and for once it was the perfect weather for a nice ride. Hopefully the weather will keep nice for the show. We usually never have good luck with the weather at this show. Last year the barn lost power and we were trying to muck out the stalls. Now that was a-lot was fun Not. Oh it made it a-lot more interesting. :)

I bet! Lol! What flyspray do you use? That sounds really cool!

I saw Lady again today, she was a good girl! It was really hot so I didn't ride. I was there with my new friend who might board one of her horses at my barn, so I was showing her around. Lady did pretty good on her inside turns in the round pen, but there is one direction where she just can't seem to learn that when I ask her to turn she doesn't always need to turn and run the other way... she needs to turn and look at me and WAIT for the cue to go. She has it fine going one way, but the other she is a total pain and will run around the round pen for minutes on end while I just stand there, my body language relaxed and not asking her to work. LOL. What a goofball!

Have anything exciting coming up? Voted! God bless!

I put Sadie's new fly mask on her today. She shredded her old one. I put Star's back on, too. I had hers off, because she had a scrape on her face that the mask was irritating. She has new places on her face from bumping into the corral. She can't see at all. So sad. I think the most merciful thing I can do for her is to put her down. Hate the thought of it. Will have to wait until next year, because I need to save up for it. I have to keep reminding myself that she's had a long life. Hugs and a vote.

Indy sure is growing fast! I do steer in 4-H so I was at the county fair all week and couldn't see him. When I got back yesterday he was way bigger! I have never thought of teaching him tricks. It is a good idea though....
Hope you have a wonderful week! Voted:)

Hi!
It has been in the 75 degree range here. I think it is the perfect temperature as long as you are just sitting around! I am working with Indy on getting him used to the halter every day. He is progressing really well! I am also going to go on a trail ride with my grandpa Monday. I am so excited! Voted:)

I spent some time Thursday with the girls. Hate to admit that I was late with giving Sadie her 4 in 1 shot. I picked it up yesterday. The man at the feed store told me how to give it to her. I put her halter on her, and Austin diverted her attention with carrots while I gave it to her. Such a good girl. I kept checking her. She's doing good. I didn't put them back in the corral, either. The property behind my house is fenced in with field fencing. I decided to just keep the corral gate open. Sadie loves to nap in the loose hay. I've got some of it put up, so she can't destroy it. Star's enjoying the freedom, too. I have a yard light up, so I can keep a check on them. I had it put up when I first got Lightning and Star.....I have a busy work weekend. Austin will be doing some of my voting for me. Leaving everyone a hug and a vote.

The hot is finally not has bad. Finally got some training time for the show coming up like in 2 weeks. Shiloh would not pivot for me at all. After a long training day I took Shiloh out for a nice group trail ride to the lake. Shiloh had way too much energy. It all started up on the hill when the girls starting run really fast. Shiloh got excited and took off and stopped right where a fence it and we just miss it. I almost turn back but I don't kinda wish I did. The rest of the way there holding her back was really hard she just wanted to do what the herd was doing. When we were heading back almost every-one wanting to canter. Shiloh went into a really fast trot. Half way there she decided she was going to try to canter after them. I told her no and she did a few jumping rears and then one rear and kept on moving like crazy so it was hard to get off. Soon I do get off and I lead her back to where the group leader is. I tell her what happens and she helps me work with her but she still really really herd bound. Voted! Have a great day!

Another hot day. The sun is so strong. When I left for work around 1:20 pm, I noticed one of Mark's horses was laying down. I tried to call him to see if she was okay. No answer. Mark's been out here for 6 1/2 years and has never put a shade up. He hasn't had the horses hooves trimmed in years, either. Don't understand why he hasn't. I called Austin and told him to let Sadie and Star out of the corral, so they could go stand under the trees for shade. I have the 8' x 12' shade in their corral, but the shade under the trees is cooler. They mutilated a bale of hay. I need to start putting the hay outside of the fence, so they can't reach it. I don't like the heat from the sun and know they don't either......Please remember to vote for Logan #237047, too, for Aug HOTM as well as Texas #209066. Two great runners. Hugs and a Monday vote.
