Basically, we bought a horse trailer that needs a lot of work. We have a stock trailer that would be easily useable for Rev and we have hauled him in it many times. I just wanted a trailer that's smaller and more "Horsai" and more of a home away from home. So after my big … Continue reading The Endurance Rig.
Her name is Faar. I think it's cool and Arabian sounding and I want to go Faar with her, dangit. There is a reason I ended up with her, though. She happens to be an asshole. So shortly after I got her, the husband came out with me and pushed our son around in his stroller … Continue reading The Faar Filly Chronicles.
Well, I guess the show went pretty well. Only one halter stallion lost his shit and mounted his handler. So that was the only person I yelled at. I consider it a win. Of course, he was an Ayrab. He was absolutely stunning, though. He was a clear winner in the class but I couldn't … Continue reading The First Show of The Season is Always The Most Interesting and Other Things…
Wish me sanity as I go judge the first horse show of the year tomorrow. Also, stay tuned for another possible Exciting New Thing. Bet you can't guess what it is... Of course, it's a horse. I honestly don't know if I will accept this one. I feel like I am getting a lot on … Continue reading First Show of the Year and Yet Another Possible Exciting Thing!!!
So a little background on my new filly Faar. There was a reason I ended up with her. It was known that I was looking to *possibly* lease or purchase a quality Arabian mare or do possible embryo transfer to my husband's mare. I had been shopping for stallions all fall 2016 and had narrowed … Continue reading Faar The New Filly.
A quick spoiler on The Exciting Thing. Friday I agreed to take a horse sight unseen. This horse was a handful and was returned to her breeder from a previous owner. The breeder being a very responsible woman took her back and commenced to finding her a home. This is all I knew apart from … Continue reading The Exciting Thing!!!
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)…
Well, the crupper finally arrived. I ordered it from Running Bear Tack and apparently during the midst of a move. I emailed about it twice because I am the most impatient human on the planet and honestly it was the only way I can get this show on the road. I did more research than … Continue reading Crupper Time!!!
Ok. I realize this may have only been me. I am probably the only person who was an uneducated savage when I first became interested in horses. You know, the second I was born. I'm absolutely positive that everyone else started with horses as a completely educated equine veterinarian/Olympic rider. Which is awesome for them. … Continue reading Remember When?
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
