Polka Dot Ponies

This will most likely be just a collection of my ramblings. I ride and train horses, so there is bound to be a lot of horse stuff. But I also just like to vent and this seems the perfect place.

Oh Mylanta! UPDATES!

I have been gone for a while!! Not actually gone but gone from Blogger for one reason or another. I am really going to attempt to get bakc on track this spring and summer with writing as I loved reading everyone elses blogs and getting all of your feedback!!

Quick update on all the horses:

Titan- He is still mama's favorite and totally knows it. He has been doing really well under saddle (at least until I had to take the last 2 months off due to the weather!

Gus- T still has him and is really excited to start working with him this spring. Though it is looking like he isn't going to get very big and since T is already close to 6' she may have to fine something else in the future.

Rocky- He is still a big jerk and is in a dry lot alone 24/7. He is next to the other horses but I am trying to avoid him bloodying up anyone else!

Lexy- Back up at her owners for the winter but is coming back this spring. Is doing REALLY well and is going to be an awesome little show mare for them.

Missy- Sold in August at a sale for $171. Broke my heart to see such a talented mare go to auction. But the lady that bought her seemed really excited to start working with her. I asked her to keep in touch with me but haven't heard anything.

Reno and Stacey- Both sold to the same lady in AZ. She is totally loving both of them. She also bought another horse I trained called Daisy and she can't decide which of the 3 she loves more.

Blue- Sold to a college guy in TN. Seemed to be the perfect match. I even checked refrences and everything but he turned around and sold Blue for about double what he paid for him about 2 months later. That was a huge bummer as well.

Biscuit- Still owned by the same people and they plan to bring him back in the spring I believe. He is an awesome little pony for me and my more advanced lesson kids but is too much pony for J. He is constantly taking advantage of her. I truly think that they should sell him and his brother (just a year younger) and buy J something that she can really learn on and not be afraid of. But who listens to thair trainer/instructor? I don't know anything I guess.

I don't think I forgot anyone...?


My new girl! I rescued her at an auction. She is such a sweet girl. She has a registration application that came with her (she is out of Shes My Pick by Rock Four). She is a cute little bay and is the most level headed 2 yr old I have ever met. Nothing seems to rattle her. Now that I have said that I am sure to be dumped from her many times this summer. I started another blog just about my training her "Adventures with Love"

So good to have you back. I was worried when you weren't posting.

Lots of events on the horse front with all the new homes. Hope they all are happy and cared for.

I'll go check out the new girl.
