What a day it has been, just got in from the barn. When I got home for lunch today mom looks out the window and says " there is a horse out." I look and it is Rebel which is not good cause if he was out so was the whole pasture. My cousin David and I go out there and sure shit they were all out. Broken 4x4 and gate laying on the ground, yuck!!! Quickly threw horses in stalls and in the indoor, so I could quickly get on my way and finish delivering the mail. When Ken got home he so nicely fixed the fence for his wife and out went the horses again- minus Belle, but added Sandy. I have tried so hard to get Belle accepted in the pasture but it just is not working. Rebel is kicking her butt from one side to the other and Sandy over the fence is tormenting her when she goes and gets water. HELP!!!!! Well we kicked Sandy out in the herd with Lori's permission and I will try putting Belle with an older Mare, Rizer. I will see how that works. Well after all that I did get to ride Rebel tonight and he did very well ,our clinic is right around the corner. The new mare Vegas did awesome I was able to take her for a walk tonight and Eric and Kathy brushed her while I held her. She behaved like a princess until she tried to take a bit out on Kathy's hand also learning real fast that doing that is very unacceptable. Sassy Vegsas! LOL.

IT HAS BEEN QUITE A WHILESESE I HAVE POSTED, BAD ME, BUT THIS TIME OF YEAR BRINGS US BACK TO THOUGHTS OF THE MIDWEST HORSE FAIR WITH MJ. WHAT A TIME THAT WAS AND MANY LEAPS AND BOUNDS HAVE BEEN MADE WITH THAT AMAZING HORSE. YESTERDAY WAS PROBABLY THE BIGGEST STEP TO DATE-THE VET- SCARRRRRY. WE ACTUALLY DREW HER BLOOD AND VACCINATED HER WITH NO SEDATION, AMAZING FEAT. GREAT JOB DR PATTY! AS FOR BELLE, I LOVE HER, THE MORE I RIDE HER THE MORE I REALLY REALLY LIKE HER, IF I WERE REBEL I WOULD BE SCARED OF BEING REPLACED. LOL. I COULD NEVER REPLACE REBEL I WOULD MISS ALL THE AMAZING GUMBY RIDES IN THE AIR.LOL.ITS NOT SO BAD WHEN I STAY ON, BUT HITTING THE GROUND HURTS WAY MORE THAN IT DID WHEN I WAS 18. WE ALSO ENROLLED BACK IN THE KEN BORDAN CLINIC AT THE END OF THE MONTH, WE WILL SEE HOW THAT GOES. I ALSO PICKED UP A NEW PROJECT,WE NAMED HER VEGAS, AN UNBROKE NOT HALTER TRAINED 3YEAR OLD MARE WHO NEEDS ALOT OF LOVE AND MONEY STUCK INTO HER. WE WILL SEE HOW THAT GOES,YEAHHHH!! IF THIS WEATHER EVER MAKES UP ITS MIND TRAINING HORSES WILL BE STARTING SOON, LOTS OF CALLS SHOULD BE A BUSY SPRING/SUMMER. HAPPY RIDING TO YOU ALL, STAY SAFE!!!
