How We Met

She was sold to my mother-in-law. She was unable to care for her, and then moved out-of-state. She was stabled with us and so she became ours by default. I am thrilled to have her :).

Showing?!
Momma's friend wants to start showing me! I am not sure how I feel about this yet. I have never been shown before, and I am no spring chicken! Momma has told her that it would be fine for her to show me, and the other mare too, if she wants to. She even said she could train the colt. Boy is he gonna have a lot to learn. Momma already wants him trained to pull a cart and ride. I sure am glad I don't have to learn to pull a cart! I would kick it to smithereens!
Momma has been sick this past week so she hasn't ridden. She wants to, but she is congested in her chest, and is having a bit of trouble breathing. She says she is going to start riding more once she is over this cold. We'll see.
So, the new mare lost the frog on her right front hoof a few weeks ago. I mean, completely gone, not even a ridge to show where the frog will grow back. Scared the hell out of Momma. It is growing back in quite nicely, and she no longer limps. Good, maybe now they will ride her, and leave me alone. Momma is laughing, I don't know why.

Time
I haven't written in a few weeks (ok it's been a month!) because time has become an issue. My momma finds it hard sometimes to help me with this (hard to type with hooves!) due to things going on in her life. Sometimes it is just that she gets busy and by the time she can help, she is just not in the mood. *SIGH* I have to work whether I want to or not, but she doesn't. Must be nice. Oh well, momma does the best she can, and I have to give her credit where it's due. She just gets busy. Granted, she gets busy with games on the tablet and computer, but busy is busy. I hope to get her writing weekly again. Wish me luck!
Momma didn't ride last week, so there is not much to report there. She rode the week before and did great. She isn't afraid of me anymore! This is good and bad. Good, because I don't want momma to be afraid of me, and bad, because now I have to work MORE! She told me yesterday we would ride more, then she got this cold that is making it hard for her to breathe. She has asthma (whatever THAT is) and she says that makes it hard to breathe when she has a cold. Something to do with her lungs, and not being able to get the air back out. She is a backwards asthmatic. Well, she is not normal in many ways, why should this be any different? *laughing*. I do love my momma, but sometimes it is so easy to pick on her :) Momma says she wants to go lay back down, so I will write more at another time.

Tandem Ride Revisited
Well, momma got a migraine, so she couldn't ride Sequoia. She got on me and our friend led me around. We are trying to get momma's confidence back. She is trying really hard, but I think I scared the heck out of her the first time she rode me, and just hasn't recovered. I am going to have to work really hard to get her to trust again. I just didn't want to ride, so I threw a fit, I had no idea I would terrify her so much. She worries so much about being hurt again. Well, between me and Sequoia (the new mare) we will get her confidence built back up. It's time for momma to cowboy up and ride it out. Our friend is helping her with that. When she led me around, momma gave up the reins. That is a big step. Our friend intentionally did things with me to make momma nervous, so she can learn that there really is nothing to fear, and to trust her seat. Momma has always had a good seat, she just has lost her confidence. Well, momma's partner is off on Thursdays and Fridays, so momma is going to ride on her own then. That way she has someone to watch and help if she gets into any trouble. She might need some encouragement, and someone to remind her that she KNOWS what she is doing. After she gets off, she goes through a list of what she should have done. She knows what she is doing, she just panics and quits thinking. She needs someone to remind her turn, turn, turn. And if the horse wants to act up, TURN! She's gonna get it, I have faith in her.

First Tandem Ride
Tomorrow our friend comes over to ride me and exercise the boy. My momma wants to ride the new mare at the same time as my ride. I am not so sure I want that other mare riding with me. She can be such a snob! Oh well, my momma will keep her in check. She has been on her once since she brought her home, so she has an idea of how she is going to be on the ride. But you can never tell. The new mare went into heat a week ago yesterday. I sure am glad I don't have to deal with that anymore! She has settled down quite a bit, so I hope she will behave herself tomorrow. If not, my momma is gonna have to let her know that misbehavior will not be tolerated. Hee hee, she hasn't been able to teach me that yet! The new mare is more accepting of being ridden by momma than I am. Maybe she can help momma get her confidence back. I hope so, I really would like my momma to ride me. I just have to throw a tantrum and see if it will get me out of work, I really don't mean any harm. Well,more tomorrow after the ride. I will write all about it.

Today's Ride
Our friend came over for a ride today. She rides to help me to learn how to let my momma ride. I love my momma, but she has had some hard knocks and gotten broken. She worries about getting broken again, even though she knows I would never hurt her. While we were riding, momma brought out the new mare. Our friend wanted to have her walk with us. The new girl is healing from an incident with barbed wire from a previous owner, and needs to walk. I was fine with this, but the new girl was not as thrilled. She is in season, and doesn't like to leave the colt, even though he is gelded. She tried to bite me a few times, and kept getting in front of me. I just pinned my ears a few times. She isn't worth getting too upset about. It turned out ok, she got her walk, and then I got to trot and canter with our friend. Then I got lots of carrots and cookies. My momma and our friend were so proud of me. I can't wait til my momma can ride me. I want to show her everything our friend has taught me. I want to go fast, and that worries my momma. I am sure she will get over it soon. She just needs to get used to me. She used to ride my boyfriend Blackhawk all over the place, until he got sick and died. I miss him and I know she does too. I want to be able to give her the same joy he gave her. I guess I just need to be patient.
