I’m very excited right now. And I’m sure your all DYING to know how everything went and who I liked better. Well, I didn’t have to choose. I got a text message late last night from the trainer with the chestnut, cancelling todays appointment. He said he didn’t want to waste either of our times because it seemed like I’d already found a horse I liked, and that I should call him if I ended up not going with her. Hmm ok? Well whatever, it wasn’t meant to be with him I figure, so I moved on.
So today was the day that I got to ride the little black mare again. They brought her over to the agents farm so I could see her in a new environment. I got there, and hopped right on, with no one schooling her first. And let me tell you, there was such a difference from when she was ridden softly from the beginning, to when she was ridden very forward, dressage-like in the beginning. She was much calmer, much more attentive, and over all just more awesome. Walk, trot, cantered her, she was awesome at all three, and did a little trot course with her. She was so good, listened to me at every moment, slowed down just by the sound of my voice, and was so good. Can you guys tell I’m in love? So my dad, AKA the business man, is going to start the negotiations and well start preparing for the vetting. Here are some pictures, sorry no video, that we took after our ride.
|Love her confirmation. Like a big pony!!|

In other news, has anyone had a dog that was a complete baby? I woke up on Friday morning and got Oscar to go to Petco to pick up some stuff. Well when I got there and took him out of the car, he was limping bad. Whimpering and three legged bad. I checked his joints, nothing, and checked his pads and webbed feet, nothing. Called the vet and they said ok, rush him in.
I get to the vets office and Oscar back to his bouncy self, putting weight on the foot again. I was like um ok well since he doesn’t seem to be off on it anymore I’ll bring him home and watch him, and call if hes lame at all again.
I get home and not even two seconds out of the car hes like this again. I mean really? Called my mom and she said just give him a couple hours and see if it goes away. It did, hes fine now, but I mean really? Could he worry me and more??
Anyways, thats all I have for you guys today! Hopefuly my next post will be filled with a lot more excitement!
