Day 12
Poor Baby! He has in total 21 cuts on him from one horse! (We moved Twister to the other pasture) I felt really bad because we had to clean the one right above his hoof and we could tell it hurt.
Injuries didn't hurt him enough to the point where he couldnt run/work. Someone had brought a noisy stock trailer to the barn and was loading up his 4 horses. Sidekick was kinda on edge but I didn't pay much attention, but when the trailer started moving a made a really loud noise he decided he wanted to be nowhere near it and took off. The halter was around his neck (I was trying his new bridal on) and I was working on attatching the reins when he moved and of course I didn't let go, instead I jogged next to him and slowed him down. In the mean time my friend went to undo the quick release on the cross tie but she didn't move fast enough and the crosstie snapped.

Day 8
My friend came out to see him today, she absolutely loves him! Lunged in the indoor and got dragged a few feet, my friend recommended using a rope halter instead of a nylon when working him, it eems to have worked so far. Rode him western and he had some speed since i didn't lunge him very much. I found someone to give me lessons and hopefully this works out! She works with Appaloosas mostly (Pushy, Stubborn ones at that) so I feel she can help me A LOT!

Day 6
It was a pretty good day actually. Si was awesome lunging (must have remembered yesterday), but needed work at staying on the rail and moving into a lope.
He got chewed up by one of the other horses, poor boy. We may move the other horse to another pasture if it happens again. Since the wound stuff is purple, my horse looks tye-dyed!

Day 5
First time in the Arena with another horse (lunging), He was being an jerkwad (I'm keeping it PG, my words were a little stronger) be pulling me around. So I essentially went dirt skiing today. I ended up pulling him in close and making him move his feet (clinton andersons method) and he wasn't happy to say the least but after about a half an hour (changing directions many times) I decided he had figured it out at asked him to halt. The look on his face was "Holy Crud, I better not cross her again!"
Tried an english saddle on him, he seems to almost like it a little better and he looks good because he isn't the big beefy western Quarter Horse so the western saddle looks huge on him! So I officially own a nice English Saddle! Lets see what tomorrow brings!

Day 4
Didn't get to do much today because of rain and a tractor in our indoor arena. So we just rode a few times around and lunged. Si was a jerk and decided he was going to kick at me and he got away, Darn Horse!!!

Day 3
Much better at lunging today, no issues at all! Riding was interesting, I will deffinatly need to take lessons to get us started, so I know how to ride him, He is so much Different than Cisco! Here is a list of things I need to work on before showing next year
1) Leads when Loping
2) Headset (preferable without touching his mouth)
3) Stopping with just seat
4) Stearing with legs/body with more precision
5) Sidepassing
6) Going faster when asked

As you can see, its quite a list! Lets hope we can do it before May!

Day 2
He was much much much calmer and easier to handle today than he was yesterday, I think we are finally getting settled down! He is deffinately not as good with his feet as Cisco was but he is probably better than most horses. We just need to learn to distribute wieght so I don't have to hold all of it!
Well, He figured out where the gate was in both the arenas (That didn't take him long!). While lunging he would turn around and get the line up and over his head and would try and pull me. Then I would make him lope (faster than usual) until we stopped doing it!
I really need to stop depending on my riens and use my body more since Si doesn't steer at all with riens, the riens are only used to help stop him and set his head! but at least he turns when I shift my wieght and add leg pressure!

My New Baby Boy!
Well, Meet my new horse Sidekick!I got him yesterday, and I hope to do some open Showing/4-H with him. He seems promising! Nice slow jog and lope! We just need to learn to not pull me around and not buck when I sqeeze you into the lope! Thank gosh my saddle fits him! But I will probably trade it in anyways to get a different color, Chocolate brown tack doesn't look very good on a black & White horse, but it works for now!
