Random Update to Get a Few More Points
Nine is such a handsome little sweetheart. He has finally started eating treats, though true to his Mustang Mentor Hammer, he prefers pellets or slices of bread. Actually, Nine still won't eat anything else, but that's fine. Unfortunately, I haven't ridden Nine in several months... He bucked me off right at the beginning of Winter Break and I was in a lot of pain (damaged my erector spinae muscle, and I could hardly walk for weeks, and didn't ride any horse for a couple months). And then school got busy, and I have to take summer classes as well so time is short. But he has been coming along in his comfort level and ground manners. I can let him out with Hammer and they stick together; I can also lead Nine without a halter like Hammer as well. My daughter can walk right up to him and he just turns his head to sniff her, then goes right back to whatever he was doing before.

Come visit me, Red, Dusty, 9007 & Hammer.

Tuesday afternoon vote for ya. I groomed Fancy this morning and cleaned her stall before I fed her. Now it's after 1pm and it's snowing pretty hard.

I won't be posting me brother's yearling filly after all. This man couldn't feed all of his horses, so he gave my brother a yearling last month. My brother lost his job so he gave her to a friend. Right now she is sick, only eating a little and sometimes she won't stand up. He had a vet check her and said to make a sling to hold her up and keep trying to feed her.

Fancy is starting Monday with a vote for you. Stay warm and have a pleasant day. Just one more month of the cold cold weather. Then we can get out, love our horses, and ride. Yippeee! I love riding at Morrow Mtn State Park here in NC, the trails are nice and the scenery is lovely. I can imagine the first time I ride Fancy there! Please, tell me about your favorite place to ride, and do you plan to ride there this spring?

Thanks to everyone for telling me about your horse(s). I enjoyed reading about the wonderful qualities of your favorite horses and so did others.
It is 18 degrees outside right now and Fancy acts like it's fine with her. I guess it's a good thing she has a good insulation of fat! Well to me it's just freezing! I won't be doing anything horsey outside today, with the expected high only in the low 30s. Hope you fare better in the weather dept. Fancy and Frances stopping by with a vote for you, have a great weekend!

Did you get to keep Mr. 9 or did you have to sell him? Just daydreaming about riding this spring and thinking: I only have my little "Fancy" horse right now and I think I will really enjoy riding her this spring, but if you have access to more than one, please tell me which is your favorite to ride and why, if you are like me and only have one, I would like to know what you like most about that one.
Tuesday while I fed Fancy she stood at the gate and when I went to exit she tried to follow me. I knew it, she wants to go out with me,LOL. It was barely over 30 degrees so I promised her a better day. Fancy got her better day Wednesday! We have had such cold days Wednesday felt like spring and it was just in the 40's. I cleaned up, groomed her, went over some of our old lessons, which to my surprise she did right off, just like we never missed a day at doing them. Then her favorite, we went out. Fancy leaves you an 'it has been a Better day' vote!

Very Merry CHRISTMAS to You!!!
Every good and perfect gift comes from above, from the Father of Lights (Albert Schweitzer)
I know this won't happen, but my impossible CHRISTmas wish this year would be to have a trail ride on Fancy, with all my HorseChannel friends. To my dismay, this isn't happening(i couldn't afford it anyway,LOL), so Fancy and I will leave you a CHRISTmas vote instead.

Fancy and I had a great Wednesday morning together. While I cleaned her stall she ran around on the frozen ground while carrying sticks in her mouth like a puppy. And I got her a bag of peppermints and she didn't like them. I am going to offer them to her again today.
Come visit me, FANCY WALK N THAT WAY with Merry CHRISTmas wishes!.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! If you missed my earlier blog please read it dated 12/22/2009.
It doesn't seem as if we have had a good dry day since the rains started. We are even expecting rain this Friday, CHRISTmas Day! We can't do our daily exercises because of mudddd:) But we will be very greatful for all of this rain come the spring and summer. And we can't wait because a whole new world will open up to us as we learn to become as one in peaceful harmony and flight. Fancy and Frances leave you a VERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS vote and May GOD BLESS The Trails You Ride!!! We Love All Of Our Friends!

May Peace be Your gift at CHRISTmas and Your Blessing all year through! (unknown)

I'm sorry, I didn't get any e-mails until now so I didn't know you had been leaving posts!

I'm not sure what petition you're talking about, but I do agree that there are alternative methods for decreasing the wild horse population to a sustainable level. The Extreme Mustang Makeover and the Mustang Heritage Foundation have been extremely successful in finding homes for many Mustangs. One of those horses is in my corral right now!

I have recieved blogs regarding signing a petition regarding treatment of wild mustangs (killing them cruely). I see you have been exposed to one of the solutions to this problem. I did not sign this petition because I would be signing this without offering a solution to the problem. Don't you think it would be better to support one of the foundations or persons that are offering a solution, for example: extreme Mustang makeover, Ken McNab, Clinton Anderson, etc. Because without offering a solution for the bureau to consider, there is no telling what they may come up with, example: other ways of eliminating horses cheaply, that could be just as cruel or worse. What do you think about this?

Well Summer's here and with it more time to work with the horses. The week before last my mother in law helped me working with Nine; we got to the point that I could sit on Nine in the round pen, but then he stepped on my foot. Nothing broke but it really set me back, especially since my baby sitter is out of town until next week.

But then today we went out to the corrals while my daughter took a nap; then when her dad got home we had some time to ride. I was able to ride around the round pen while Nine was being ponied off Ashley, and by myself. Then it started raining so we came inside. But I was on Nine for probably half an hour!

Wow, it's been a while! These days Nine will come up to me in the round pen about 1/2 the time; he lets me walk right up to him while he is laying down; he stands to be saddled with different saddles; he will eat while I stand right in front of him without problems now - he used to hesitate with that. I still haven't been on him yet this winter, but I am trying to find the time. Even without that we have come a ways building trust from the ground.

Nine hasn't been ridden again yet (I'm really busy with school), but yesterday and the day before that he got out to get some exercise. We worked on lunging, then yesterday he was tired of circles so he got to go for a walk.

Well, I guess I need to update that last post; Nine has 4 rides now, and he has trotted.

Anyways, today he got two wolf teeth pulled. We didn't bother floating his teeth because they are still growing in. But the vet said he looks like he might end up with a wave and need his teeth floated next year.

3rd Ride
Nine has three rides now, but I still haven't trotted or gotten him ridden outside the round pen yet. Trotting is next on the list, then riding with a saddle! After that we'll get out of the pen.

Following the bucking spree we had several days of horrendous wind, so I didn't get anything does outside, much less try to ride Nine. This morning the wind had died down so I cleaned out all the horses' feet. Nine was doing really well until I had his hind foot stretched back and was taking the hoof pick to it when the goat sneezed right next to Nine's head! Nine jumped to the side and took his foot with him. He had every chance to kick me and even had an excuse, but he didn't kick. I was very grateful for that!

1st and 2nd rides
Nine's first ride, which went really smoothly, was on Monday the 29th. There is a picture below from that. The second ride was Tuesday the 30th, which was not as smooth! Nine bucked when the off side stirrup touched his side. I was off in about 0.000001 seconds and landed on my knee, which is swollen; but, luckily, nothing seems to be broken. Sorry, no pictures from that :P

Keeping Nine!
We got 6th place in Fort Worth, and Nine sold for $700, the highest in his class. Then the people who bought him, an organization called Mustangs Forever, gave Nine back to me! So I got him for free (almost - the hauling fees were astronomical). I am so very glad to have him back! This weekend we get back to work on the training.

Feet Trim
Our farrier, Rossco Morgan, is an excellent guy. He came out to donate a trimming for Nine, and only asked for gas money, even though he got kicked on his broken foot. Now Nine has pretty feet, and with all the work that Rossco did to get those backs trimmed, Nine also picks up his back feet for me like a charm.

I tried without the rope; he did fine for a while, then got a bit iffy, which made me nervous, which made him kick me in the elbow. Now I am too nervous to try again. I'm working on getting the rope on him again to start over.
