I'm sorry that you've had such terrible computer problems. What a pain. I hope it's all fixed now. I took Pippin out for a run with the cart on Saturday evening. I was pretty cold but he wasn't. We were gone for an hour and a half and he trotted or cantered the whole way. Pretty good for a little mini. It was really windy and cold so I think he was pretty riled up by it. That just makes it more fun. He decided to spook at a few windy things but not too bad. Anyway, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and then on Sunday afternoon I took him for a bike ride and he really ran and worked up a sweat. It has warmed up considerably again. Thank goodness because I don't like the freezing weather. Oh, and one of his molars flew out and landed on the road. I guess he's still teething. Well, I hope you enjoyed your weekend and here's a vote. ttyl

Thanks for stopping by. So, did you sneak some computer time at school? I'm so sorry that it's taken me so long to respond. I have been so busy that I've barely had time on here. I'm doing fine now after my fall last week. I had a swollen neck for a little while and it was a little out of whack but the chiropractor repositioned it. And my bruises are getting smaller. Yesterday I rode Eddie because my sister wanted to ride Prince. I guess she wanted some excitement in her life too. Well, he was really good and actually a little tired. I think it's because he had been out with the wagon a couple of days before and had a real workout. Anyway, I rode Eddie who was a little excitable and then this rein come undone from the bit. I have to admit, that it is not a very nice feeling to have a giant horse under me with no control over his head. He got excited because the bit was jingling and started dancing around. Fortunately, he loves to follow Prince so I had my sister walk him slowly back and Eddie followed and didn't take off. Phew, that was a relief. After his rein was fixed I had a really nice ride on him. Pippin is his usual fiesty self and he's so much fun to drive. Well, I hope you're doing fine too and getting lots of time to ride. Here's a vote for you. ttyl

Hey, it was great to hear from you again. I'm glad you got a new computer and I hope it's much faster than your old one. Did you get a chance to watch Pippin's new movie yet? There's also another one now that stars our little fawn, Bambi. Yesterday I took Pippin out with the cart and he was just so good. He cantered fast through the forest and slowed nicely to a fast trot when I told him and then we were able to squeeze through these two trees without any hitch while still trotting. Quite an accomplishment for him. And then he backed up as well to get into the right position for another entrance. Today was quite exciting for me too. I rode Prince this morning without Eddie being there and he was so good. He went over the jumps without any refusals and did all kinds of gait changes and stops with no problem. Well, he knocked down one of the jumps so I dismounted so that I could put it back up and also it would give good practice for mounting Prince out in the field. Well, he doesn't like standing still and to make it worse, when I went to mount, the saddle started slipping so I had to abort and tighten the girth. So then I mounted and had just position myself and my feet in the stirrups and he started bucking like crazy. There was no pause between the bucks and they were pretty big. I couldn't pull his head up because I didn't have a good hold on the reins and I bailed. I don't think I would have been able to stay on anyway. Well, I chose a bad place to land because I landed on a metal fence post that was at a 45 degree angle. I am so glad that I wear a helmet because I landed head first and it broke the back of the helmet completely. I ended up no worse than a bad bruise on my calf and a major headache which is steadily getting worse so I think I'm going to head off to bed soon. Prince, of course, took off and charged around the field until he found something to eat. I eventually got back on him with someone holding him and he again was a perfect gentleman with nice trotting and perfect attention to my aids. What a crazy ride! How's everything on your side of the country? It was in the high 90s here today and still lots of smoke but there's a slim chance it will rain later in the week and it's supposed to cool down. We'll believe it when we see it. It will probably thunder without rain and start yet more fires. Now, that's not pessimistic but pretty realistic. It's happened every other time they've said it would rain. Oh well, such is life in a mountain desert. We went blackberry picking this afternoon and I rode my bike and brought Pippin with us. He loved it and he was loose and just stayed right with us the whole time. I think he figured that we had finally figured out that life is supposed to be about grazing and eating all day. He was in heaven. Well, I hope you're doing fine and here's a vote for you. Sorry to bore you with such a long blog. ttyl

I just made a new video starring Pippin. It's called Pippin's Love and the link is above. I thought you might enjoy it. I also have new photos on Prince's and Eddie's pages. I would love for you to check them out. My sister also uploaded a new video of her parrot, Poirot, babbling away. The video is called Poirot's Babbling. I know she would love a visit from you. Have you been watching the Olympics? We have and they're pretty exciting. The opening ceremony was the best ever and we were just awestruck. Well, here's a vote for you and enjoy riding. ttyl

Hey, I like the new photo. It's kind of neat. No, I don't play Halo. I really don't have a lot of extra time. Pippin is doing really well, as usual. I took him out with the cart yesterday. He did something he's never done before. He always comes to the fence when I call him, eager to do whatever's in store. Well, he came running and neighing to the fence but when he saw the bridle he looked at it and turned around and put his butt towards me. Then he slowly walked away and then stopped about 50 feet away and just looked at me. It was really strange. So I asked him what was wrong and considered for a few seconds and then walked back to me. I bridled him and hooked him up to the cart and we really enjoyed the ride. He was having so much fun. Last time I took him out with the cart I had let some others drive him and they must have hurt his mouth or done something to him. I'm not going to let anyone else drive him in the future unless I'm right there keeping an eye on things. As soon as he realized that we were going alone he was fine, so I'm sure it's something like that. I'm just happy that his reluctance wasn't permanent. It doesn't take much to ruin a horse. Well, back on a nicer note. On the way home we were going by a gate and had to squeeze through a narrow gap. Well, I misjudged and the wheel was against the gate and we couldn't go forward. So I told Pippin to back up and veer right and he did it! I was so pleased with him and he was pretty pleased with himself too.
Well, have you been getting to ride? Here's a vote for you and enjoy the rest of your weekend. ttyl

I'm really sorry that I wasn't on to chat but I just couldn't make it. It's so busy around here. Prince was so amazing today. I rode him this evening and he jumped again with such enthusiasm. His ears prick up when we start towards a jump and he starts cantering. I even raised on a little and he went right over. I'm so proud of him. It's amazing how much he's changed since I first started to ride him. He no longer spooks at everything and today for the first time I tried mounting him out in the field and he didn't try to bolt. I can't get over it. I also took Pippin out with the cart again and my sister drove him for awhile with her African Grey parrot. He seemed to like it. Have you had any chance to ride yet? Here's a vote for you. ttyl

Well, I left a comment on the website but our time difference is 3 hours so you must have been in bed already. It's easier for me to write on here. I've started to teach Prince how to jump while you were gone and he's doing so well. He hasn't refused once. We've only tried two different days so we're only as high as a foot but that's good progress. I hope you're doing fine and getting to ride. Here's a vote for you. ttyl

Here's an update on Fresca's progress for Sammy!
Hello! Everyone sounds like they want to know how Fresca is so here's an update! On Sunday afternoon I rode Fresca for an half hour in the orchard. Then she was getting a little tired so I desided it was time to grad. for the orchard and move into the pasture. She LOVE it! Before she was a little tired for cantering but now her head went up and ears foward! I thought she'd be more jumpy and skidderish but no! She was great! I'm going to get her use to this pasture and then when she's ready go across the creak into a whole nother pasture with lots more places to explore! The farrier came on Tuesday. She stood still for him while he trimmed her hoves. So I'd say over all she's doing GREAT!!! I left a vote for you! Talk to you soon! Happy Trails!

Come visit me, Fresca.

That's great that you're getting points for a magazine on here. I've done that too and I get Horse Illustrated and Young Rider. They're really fun. I had a really great ride on Prince this Tuesday. My sister didn't come so we rode without Eddie and he was so much more concentrated on my aids and without the distraction he was almost perfect. For the first time I took him over a couple of poles. He was kind of spooked the first time but then after that it was no problem at all. I want to try raising them so he'll jump. We'll have to see what he thinks about that. I think he's such a great guy and he's really putting his heart into learning stuff. He still tries to grab a bite to eat while we're riding but that's okay. Sometimes I let him. Pippin is also doing really wonderfully. I took him part way up the mountain a few days ago and he trotted the whole way up. And then when we turned around he cantered fast all the way down. It was so much fun and the best thing of all is that when I asked him for a "whoa" in the middle of cantering he stopped within a few steps. He's so responsive and eager to do the right thing. Well, most of the time. He can take two passengers now and he does really well. We haven't tried any faster than a trot because I think he needs to build up to that. Anyway, as you can see I'm pretty pleased with my two boys. Eddie's great too but he's more my sister's. Well, I hope you had a great weekend and here's a vote for you.

I'm so sorry that you fell and tore yourself up. Are you okay now? I hope you're healing up fast. I hope your dog's okay too. It was 110 here but now it's cooled down and it's raining a lot. We're really happy about that. It's like we had winter and then three weeks after our last snow we get 110 degrees and now it's cooled down and raining so we're finally getting our spring weather. It never rains during the summer so we need all the rain we can get now. Pippin's getting a bit antsy with this bad weather though. I always let him loose in the afternoon before I move him to his day paddock and he just went wild. He was galloping and bucking all over the place and completely tearing up the lawn and then I took him on a walk this evening and he was very naughty and just wanted to bolt and get into mischief. I need to take him on a long bike ride to wear him out when there's a break in the weather. We'll both enjoy that. Well, here's a vote for you. ttyl P.S. I rode Prince yesterday and when I went to halter him he nickered at me. That's the first time he's really shown any affection and I am thrilled.
