How We Met

I was online one night looking at new barrel racing horses. I came accross an ad for a ten year old barrel horse gelding. I wasn't particularly looking for a gelding, but when I contacted the girl and met the horse, I fell in love! The girl told me how she had purchased him from a friend that went to college and didn't have time to race. She explained how when she bought him, she had thought as well trained as he was, he'd be a great trail horse. Well, he didn't want to slow down enough and was a "spook" to other horses in their trail riding groups. So, I found the horse I was looking for, a FAST, and SPUNKY little horse!.

He looks like a lot of fun! And fast! I do barrel racing w/ my Appy and Quarter horse- but my Appy likes to run into the barrels instead of going around, silly horses. ~Left a vote =)

Ms Scarlet Norfleet HOTD!!!!!!!!!!!
SCARLET~ fun, loving, pretty, sweet, loves to eat, great, best, nice, loves kids, loves me, riding, western, baby. Truly, there is NO words good enough in the world to explain her. I may sound like I am bragging but I am a proud mother! Just taking care of my baby. She rides very smooth. Her walk is pretty slow, but nice jog and trot. Very smooth canter and lope. Can run fast if she wants to. She is very good at Western Pleasure, trail rides, and giving kisses. She is a complete joy to be around. She has very good health. About 3 weeks ago a dog was chasing a deer and Scarlet jumped a 4 1/2 ft barbed wire fence and her front feet made it but her back feet barely caught it. :( She is doing VERY good now. She had to get stitches but those were removed 2 weeks ago. The cut was only so deep cuz barbed wire is only so long but the hair hasnt grown back yet because there is not good, solid skin built up on it yet but I would say there will be in about 1 to 2 weeks. The hair will grow back once good, solid skin is there. Anyway, she is doing very good now. Please jsut copy & paste this and send it for a comment to help this dream come true. I think my horse deserves HOTD because she is my baby and I love her sooo much and I just want to show her how much I care and that other people want her to heal up and care just as much as I do. Please help me do that by voting her for HOTD tommorow. I love you all and so does she. Come check her out please. THANK YOU ALL SOOOO MUCH! Scarlet, Babs, and Ann Taylor. (Check Babs out too. I will advertise her after Scarley-poo gets HOTD.) Send your horses my hugs and kisses XOXOXOXOXO Left ya a vote and some apples, peppermints, and carrots. O' O' O' >O< >O< >O< %> %> %> O' O' O' >O< >O< >O< %> %>

Come visit me, <3 Ms Scarlet Norfleet!!! & <3 Hollywood Babs!!!!.

RE:
Hey, just replying to your other blog u sent me for Babs. No, I dont run poles in competitions, I just do that on the 'playdates' She can change leads like that. Babs has also ran a quarter horse race, and won. She has been trained like a racing horse- reins tight, only squeeze with top legs to go, LOVES to go. My riding teacher runs barrels to on her. She does really good with it. I am sooo proud of her.

Come visit me, <3 Ms Scarlet Norfleet!!! & <3 Hollywood Babs!!!!.
