HI
Wow, I can't believe I was gone for so long!

Thank you so much for HOTD, I'm so sorry my thank yous are so late.

Okay so I'll catch everyone up on what's going on.

1st: The 10th of October was my birthday, which I got to spend with my family and Shawn, it was a good day, nothing fancy. The next day I had a private lesson, just Shawn and myself with my new instructor! I finally found a new barn!!! She is a very nice lady, she does eventing and also rescues horses then gets them into new homes.
For my first lesson we worked on my dressage position and trotting without stirrups. I lost my balance at one point and somersaulted off of my horse, I tucked and rolled, landing on my back and shoulder. My helmet is scraped up a tiny bit, but not damaged, my elbow, arm, neck, and chest are a different story. I can't turn my head in one direction completely, but I'll come out of it, just a bit of whiplash, I've had it happen before.
Shawn did alright, he can't keep his heels down to save his life, but he wasn't really trying either.

My horse for the lesson was Phoenix (See my new pic's) he's a 8 year old 16.2 hh Thoroughbred/ Hanoverian cross gelding, he's a lovely brown and getting his winter woolies in. He's very sensitive to leg and hand aids, so I have to be careful with him. He was one of the rescues Virginia kept as a lesson horse.

Shawn got Amadeus, a 14.2, 9 year old bay Arabian gelding. He's very quiet and well mannered. He was given to Virginia by his owner and is a sweet little guy.

2nd: I'm in the process of still looking for a job, I've put in applications all over town, so hopefully I'll get something soon, especially with the holiday season coming up soon.

3rd: I'm finally doing better with my back, I officially threw it out about 5 times within 8 weeks and now am on the mend, I can lift 40 pounds again with no real problem, but I'm still wearing a brace for heavy lifting.

4th: I've been far more active on other forums as it's easier for me on the other websites, but I still come here and check everything as often as possible.

I hope everyone is doing great and want to give you all my love, hugs and votes. :)

Come visit me, TJ (And friends).

what do you ride now?
Good Morning, I had lots of OT this week, my hands are killing me...I'm still playing catch up from last winter when Trevor was with us, I'm not complaining but, we heat with propane and it was the coldest winter in 22 years, plus propane prices went up 40% plus Trev was cold and so we kept the house warm for him, as a result we were $1206 over budget on heat. It has to be paid by September 1, so the new budget can start, do I need OT?? Yes I do. Charlie and Sterly are good, we will have a nice ride today, this is a long weekend, yippee. we voted, Love Donna Lee

Sometimes it is best for both the horse and rider, to sell and find one that is better suited to your ability. Good Luck on your search.

How we found/bought Spangle:
We needed a horse to keep Rose company, but we also wanted a horse for my mom to ride. I found Spangle on Craigslist. We went to look at him. He was the perfect size for my mom and was calm. My mom also liked his personality. A week after going to look at him we brought our trailer to pick him up… More tomorrow!

I lunged the horses yesterday. Spangle did great! I expected him to be a little grumpy, but he wasn't! He was good. Rose was her normal frisky self:)

Come visit me, Spangle: Running for Dec. HOTM, Zilker: Please vote Spangle HOTM & Rose: Please vote Spangle Dec. HOTM.

I'm back! My family took a road trip to visit family. We also took 2 "vacation" days. It was fun. The horses are good.

Thank for all the support for Spangle's HOTM run, even though I haven't been on. I will start his story tomorrow.

Thank you for Spangle's HOTD yesterday! It was fun coming home and seeing him the spotlight:)
Thanks again for Spangle's HOTM support!
