last night i had a very very startling conversation with a 17 year old claiming to be a horse trainer... who claims to have been the one who started my stud horse shorty. when i picked him up he was maybe 12 hands and half starved... barely ready for me to start. he knew nothing. would not yeild to leg pressure would not take the bit and had no idea what a saddle was. the woman who had him before... angela said she had not even started him and had only taken him to barrel competitions and tied him to the trailer....
so this girl said she started him..... wow... so what i did was absolute crap really...
i didnt have him spinning i didnt have him sliding i didnt have him doing anything... it was all a 17 year old girl...... NOTE THE SARCASM.....
THATS ALL BULLSHIT!
ok im done bitching gitta go

so the team penning season starts again soon! and miss diamond has not been around cows. tonight i will ride her in the pasture around the reds and see what she is going to do. it could go one of two ways... into the cows, or me on the ground. Now because if certain things that have been going on health wise i would rather stay in the saddle. if i end up on the ground at least it is soft enough i would not get too hurt.
Her owner wants her to pen, thats the glory of it... so in training her i am teaching her a discipline... thus no longer making her a green horse... thats the glory!! she really is a neat horse. all be it... a not so smart one... but a nice all around horse. perfect for bonnie... at times she reminds me of Vanna white... thats what i cal her at the barn... vanna hahah... she turns into a rail horse when i work her and i can quite litterally run her into a wall... she just shuts down... she hates arena work... but is a great trail horse!
Ruby ruby ruby... she murdered the hitching post..... there were no signs posted that said... "DO NOT TIE HORSES TO POST... UNSTABLE....." and instead of trusting my instincts.. i saw the self proclaimed 17 year old horse training wonder, who by the way bruised a mare on the chest... how do you do that? i watched her tie her moms horse and her two year old to it and they were fine... but they were not my skitish little filly Ruby. she pulled back on the post and the whole top pole came flying at her like a 100 mile and hour fast ball... rediculous if you ask me, ONLY because it took me out at the shins.... i flew hahah, swept my legs right out from under me...
nothing serious... just quite comical... due to the fact ruby had the pole tied to her face and her ass planted against the hot wire.. which luckily isnt working very well in that spot... couldnt have been above a 2 because she only flinched when it touched her...
ruby thinks everything is going to eat her. the last trainer who had her must have went at her like a flying mass of yellow jackets... the whip is going to get her.. the cross ties... the brushes.. and last of all the farrier... that will be a fun one... her previous owner... who owns diamond says she is out to get all who proclaim themselves farriers... oops... i dont think darren will like getting his as bitten... we will see what i can do with her
i am feeling much better! my neck still bothers me... but the doc said it will take time to heal... dammit... the one thing i lack the the personal department is patience... when its about me it needs to happen now!!
im out of here like a bad hairdo... cheezy i know...
but its all i got!
peace out homeys!!

so what i thought was a mild muscle strain ended up being a small anuerism and a clot with a torn vertebral artery. wow... thats a mouth full. so im out for at least another week, maybe two. I have no pay coming in, no income whatsoever.... yuck.
i have not been able to ride diamond... i think she is getting flabby.. and ruby has a pot belly from hell im working on....
ruby does join up ok in the round pen, but she is afraid and i dont blame her at all...
ok im off to see why my child wont sleep...
peace out homeys

RUBY IS HERE!! i will be posting picks of her tomorrow if i feel like i can get off the couch.....SHE IS FRIGGIN CUTE!!
So i have been fighting extreme neck pain since monday. I have taken or attempted to take everything i possibly could have. every over the counter medication, every hot pack, cold pack, pain patch. NOTHING WORKS AT ALL!!!
did i mention i have only slept maybe 5 hours since monday???????????? no joke ive been surfing the net most of the nights since then or watching tv.... i may be going insane!
im frustrated. I cant ride because it hurts, when i do i want to cry. Every tiny movement kills me. I cant lift, i cant pull. Im worried about a bulged disc. That is the last thing i need to deal with right now.
I will have ruby to train, and diamond to finish and whatever else comes my way from work.
i just can deal with this right now.
so i will go to the docs before work. i will have them look at me, and if i can i will go to work.
hopefully they tell me whats wrong so that I am not in pain any longer!
ruby will be here in a couple of hours and in my hands will be her registration papers! my horse, again finally. After the loss of shorty i didnt want another horse, but i cant stay away from them. Im not me without them.
ALISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! she will be here and as long as my neck holds out i will get to hang out with her and kati!!
happy friday all......

Today is friday. I have come to the conculusion that i would love to team pen with eb and kati this winter... if only i could find pennings on the weekends, that would be sweet!!
diamond needs to... then ruby definately!
finiances are extremely tight right now.... literally no money left over for anything at all... not even enough to breath really... its my fault though for missing work to be with beau...
it will get better soon!
on the flip side, ruby will be here next week!
training wise, I was told to try something with the mare that refused to collect. To lay a rope tied from one ring on the saddle across her hocks tied to the other ring on the saddle... for some darn reason it pushed her right into collection! it was a miracle!!
who would have thought something so simple would do the trick??
this is a pick of my first horse.... after my parents sold him on me....
laceys little dude
to this day i cant figure out how i trained him so well, anyone can ride him and he is quite the pocket horse.... just one of my many great achievements really!
Here is my horse skip n driftwood: NOTE i sold him for 800 dollars did all the work on him and the person in california who owns him is claiming all of his training....
BIOTCH.... (i kept it kosher for the pg readers)
and finally here is disco.... in his younger days
anywho... its friday.. im going to the ducks game tomorrow...
cleaning my garage on sunday.... then preparing for my filly to be here next friday or saturday!!
you all have a great weekend.... and i am off to deliver my child to his grandmas house for some grandma time!
peace out homies!!

SO i was supposed to pick my check up a little after 11, but it never showed up. which means i will have no money until i can cash it!
my board is due today, i know lynn will understand, but i planned my whole day around paying my bills and now i am sitting here on the computer with no board paid! hahahahah... that is truly my luck.
so a little about ruby...
her name is hush rubys drum, she is a three year old homizygous tobian filly.
AND SHE IS A SHIT!
she will be here on the 25th, and i am very very excited, but she is a very high maintenance filly!
because of an old farrier, she hates all farriers! she wants to eat them... and its almost understandable... except she cant do that!! darren would stop shoeing for me in that case!
i want to use her for reining and cutting... if she can slide that is.... we shall see.
either way i have my hands full!
my son is feeling better!
and im still on the hunt for the perfect saddle!
everyone have a great weekend!
the word of the day is wafting!!!!!!!

ok so kati feels as though i called her feet weird.. not really... i said her big toe looked different but it was because she broke it ( i think) so brandon did not comment back.... haha
instead he TATTLED on me! ive already introduced kati to a man who is in LOVE with her feet...
ray the foot fettish guy hahahahahahhahahahahahaha
oh uh hem... haha did i laugh out loud? sorry kati i still love you!
the horse pictured above by my title is named Bailey... she just so happens to have been the sweetest little mare i ever had the chance of knowing. Kati was told she would never to anything again. she either broke her shoulder or messed her back up, but due to some strange reason (the horse cant speak a lick of english) we will never really know what happened to her.
one day she was fine, the next day she was dragging her right foreleg! ouch!
im SUPER excited for kati to ride her again.. because the vet said she never would.. it would be a feet of superhuman abilities.... ok maybe not but it sure would rock....
so less than 24 hours until the mare in training is here then its count down to my filly being here!! pretty much back to back horses in training.... its great... i wouldnt have it any other way
on a cuter note: my son said i love you! haha concidering he is bearly 8 months old... and he yells and laughs to communicate (much like myself really) its amazing to see! i never thought I would enjoy being a mom! its been tough, but each milestone makes me smile.... to see this little person who grew inside of me?!?!?! it feels the best! and now i can feed him wierd foods to watch him make faces!
ok everyone... well i guess my two followers... happy friday!

now he is gone forever. I can never see him again. i can never smell his smell or kiss his face, (he loved kisses)
i feel as though ive failed.
i know that the year that i had him was the best year of his life. But it still hurts to think that it was the only good year of his life.
How can people put horses through what he had gone through?
is very dissapointing really.
he was covered in lice and underweight when i got him and i made him spectacular.
again now he is gone.
