Ok, I have to quit letting things get away from me. It's just too much to get into one post. So where to start? I think a nice list will get us there. I started writing a post about how Rev's contract is getting renewed and he is going for some roping/cow-horse training. So I will … Continue reading Y’all I Don’t Even Know Where to Start…
So let's say Zeke will not be living with Rev. They cannot peacefully safely cohabitate. Which is super inconvenient. Regardless they both got plenty of work today. Rev did excellent as always and was incredibly responsive to voice commands and just generally soft. On a better note, Rev modeling his new gear. How does anyone attach … Continue reading Zeke and Rev. BFFs ForNever.
Today I went out and gave semi-annual vaccinations. Here in the Swamp we have a lot of mosquitoes. All year. Also, vaccinations are required before and after breeding season etc. The ponies also got Ivermectin. I went out and gave shots and dewormers first to Skye and when I was done I didn't even have … Continue reading One Reason I Love Rev.
Soooo... I just wanted to check in real quick and update. Today I finally rode Rev. He has been worked 3 times with the crupper and this was his 4th time wearing it. It was glorious. I forgot how sensitive he is to *everything*. I really need to pay attention when I start horses, to … Continue reading Quick Check in and an Exciting Thing(Maybe)…
Or... Rev was a huge A-hole for New Year's Day. Apparently, my pony had also made a list of goals for 2017. Chief among them, was to establish himself as the boss. See, my husband's mare isn't bred this year, so he couldn't live with her. I hate for him to live by himself, so … Continue reading My Horse’s New Year’s Resolution
I am making an effort to do more horse related activities. I always decline or find a way out of socializing. I am doing the Write 31 Days Challenge just to make myself be 'out there'. Quite honestly I would rather be journaling these entries away safely for me alone. I am very introverted. I … Continue reading Renewing Membership and a New Membership
You know until I moved here I had no idea. The other day we had some people come trim trees. I let them know if they need to go into Field A that the bull is in there and don't let him out. He's a youngun' and isn't interested in people except those with food. … Continue reading Some People… Well They’re Morons.
Today is International Helmet Awareness Day! A few online horse stuff sites have 20% off of helmets and free shipping. So today is the day to get a new brain bucket. I got a carbon gray Tipperary Sportage 8500. Important side note: My husband is going to use my other one. He actually agreed to wear … Continue reading International Helmet Awareness Day!!!
Success! Yesterday and today I worked Rev on the lunge again. Both days he wore a surcingle and I plan to incorporate side reins soon. I don't want to use them tight or to get a frame really. They will be more to give him something new to think about until we can do less … Continue reading Two Days At A Time!
Well yesterday Rev did a little work. It was only lunging and will be until I find a saddle that fits. Which needs to be soon. He and I are both fat and out of shape but we will get there. He is so eager to work and I am so thankful for that. It's … Continue reading One Day At A Time
