Jumping at my new home

Sorry I have not updated in so long! Life has been craaaazy.

First order of business, a couple months ago, my sister Gracie and I moved! That's right, we're in a new place. This place.. is amazing!

We have stalls we get to come into at night, with our OWN FOOD. I don't have to share with anyone. At first I lived next to Gracie, but I'd get mad when she would leave and scream, this drove people nuts... I can't help it, she's so pretty. Anyway, now I live next to another mare who puts me back in line if I get too naughty.

My mom has been working with me a lot, we have such fun together! We go on trail rides around the barn, even have done some little jumping. My withers feel so much better since Audrey fixed me and I had time off.

Here's my mom and me jumping:

Lastly, I have a new friend! Her name is Nikki, she is 12 and she is learning to ride on me. Well, she already knew how to ride, but the last pony she rode was very mean. I love her, so I am sure to always be very nice to her. I like when we ride, if I get tired and stop, instead of insisting I work, she pets me and tells me how wonderful I am. I took her on her very first trail ride last weekend! Oh, it was fun. Robin, Emalee, Kathy, Kori and my mom (with Gracie) all rode with us, Patrick and Devin walked along, it was so fun.

Oh, and I almost forgot! On April 22, I turned 6! Yes 6! We had a party with cake and party hats and carrots. Yum!

My mom thinks I am silly, but I think that she is silly.

I got excited when she got on (who wouldn't? it's so exciting to ride!) and she told everyone around us to be careful coming up behind me, because I'm silly. I think she is silly! I think I can handle another horse next to me, in fact, I am a horse and I am a herd animal.

It was fun last night because my buddy Everett was riding with us, and I like him! He now has a saddle just like mine, so we match, we're twins, he is maybe a little bigger than me, with a longer banana, but other than that, we are a lot alike.

I am trying to get over my biting habit, but it's so hard. When horses play, we bite at each other, the humans don't like this at all. When I bite mom she makes this delightful squealing noise and taps me on my nose, it's so much fun to get this rise out of her. Humans are so silly.

My mission

My mission this weekend was to ease my mom's mind, she's a worrywart but I am not! Humans are silly with their worries.

Thursday night I got to go for a ride. I tried my hardest but I really wanted to run and buck, it's been so icy out that I've only been able to stand around playing bitey face (okay, so maybe that's how I got my owie). Everything is slippery and I can't run!

Well, Mom got on me on Thursday and I got very excited thinking we could go for a run, she didn't want to run with me I guess and got off and put the lunge line on me and I decided I would run and buck alone. At first I got really mad that the stirrups were hitting me, those things tickle!! But after mom ran them up, I at least calmed down a little. My adrenalin got pumping though and I did some bucking and levitating. Oh it is so much fun to levitate on the lunge line... like flying a kite!

Anyway, when I was done mom got on me and we walked and trotted around. She didn't want to run at all, I wonder why? Well, it's okay, I was happy to give her a ride, since I got my haircut I don't get so sweaty.

I will post a picture of my new haircut soon, mom has still been too upset with things to do much, and then she spend time with that Devin guy on Friday and Saturday. I am worried she might like him more than me, so I bit her when he came with on Thursday... but she has assured me that she could never like anyone more than me, and I hope she's right. I need to be everyone's favorite... all of the time.

Here is a picture of me from last fall, that Devin guy took it. He always has a camera in hand!

I have an owie on my lip, so I will post pictures later. I did get my hair cut, and I must say I look quite dapper, it is good I got my gray blanket back too, phew, that purple one is embarassing!!

My mom is in turmoil right now, if you can spare some good thoughts for her and my lip, I would be forever grateful.

Two bits!

Actually, I only have one bit I use really, it's a loose ring JP snaffle bit.

What I'm talking about is "shave and a haircut, two bits".

I overheard Lennie and mom talking... tonight is the night, I am getting clipped! I hope my friends won't make fun of me, but my friend Everett is clipped and he looks great, so we'll see. I just get so hot when I'm riding under the heaters that I sweat so much. I am afraid of the blow dryer and will slip out of my halter and leave, that thing is hot and noisy! The sound of hair dryers makes my mom nauseous anyway, so she is happier not to have to use them if she can help it (humans are so odd!). If you can guess what color I will be underneith my winter hair, I will present you with an award you can place on your blog. Entries will close tomorrow and a photo of my nekkedness will be posted, and the award will be made for you separately.

It's been raining here and I'm a little bit soggy, and my Weatherbeeta blanket is getting very ripe, so I hope my Pessoa blanket is back from the mender (I couldn't help it, I just had to break it) today so I can wear something clean. I don't know how Gracie keeps her's from smelling so bad, but girls are like that I guess.

Let me leave you with some inspiration for the day.

May your mane always be tidy
May your hooves always be swift
May you leave room in the horse trailer
So your mom doesn't have to use the Biff

May you build a ladder to the loft
And up there you shall stay
And while you are up there
Please throw me down some hay

Always try to be good
Never step on anybody's feet
Always look your cutest
You'll be rewarded with a treat!

My weekend

This weekend my mom and me became one again. She rode me!

Now, this is a big deal, because last time she rode me 3 months ago, my neck hurt so I sort of lost my cool and went crazy, mama went flying and broke her butt. I didn't mean it, I just reacted without thinking.

My mama can be a fragile thing, so I decided I must take care of her. I behaved perfectly, even though Mira was running around and banging into the wall. Lennie was there and told my mom just to get on and ride as if nothing had ever happened and we had the perfect ride yesterday. She was a little apprehensive at first, I could tell, but she rode off my back with long reins so I could show off my hunter pony movement, everyone at the hunter shows tell me how cute I am, and I love that.

The rest of the weekend was great, the sun was warm and I love the sun on my back. I went and played in the burrs too, which is a lot of fun. I do it all the time but I can't hide the fact that I did, the proof sticks in my mane and tail! Then I have to stand in the cross-ties and while mom picks them out, she could just leave them there, I consider it my own personal style.

We got some video of our ride I will put up soon, mom likes to bring along her video camera and I love to watch myself on video.
