    Talking Update on horse I recieved from DukesMom Now with PICS!!!

    Well, Benny has been home since Sunday evening and is settling in quite nicely. He is a dream to handle and even nicer to ride. Now I just have to figure out what all his buttons are! I asked for a shoulder in and got a half-pass last night. He is SO patient with me and my trying to learn what he can teach me.

    For such a BIG guy he so attentive and easy to handle. Lana (BO) said he "spooked" at the tractor yeasterday... He stopped and snorted, she patted his neck and they went on out to the pasture.

    I will post pics this weekend, with me working until 5 pm and it getting dark so stinking early I havn't been able to take pics.

    Thank you again DukesMom for such a wonderful partner! Please come visit when you can, the barn is always open to you guys!

    Pics will be posted this weekend. I will try to get some tonight in the barn. But I'm not sure if they will come out good or not. We need to all get together at the Texas Rose Horse Park one weekend when we are showing there.

    Good luck with Missy, if she is anything like Benny, she is awesome! lol Benny and I are going to mainly do Dressage with a dabble here and there in some jumping, what are you going to do with Missy???

    Oh!!! DukesMom, where did you guys get those stall signs????

    If the inside stirrup is weighted more than the outside stirrup you'll get a HP instead of the SI.

    We are hopefully going to event I will probably do some dressage shows and maybe a jumper round or two on her as well. I really just want something to ride, play with and have fun on, since I haven't had a horse that jumps or does anything besides reining or cutting since my "big" mare passed away in January. I am very excited.

    Sounds like you are having fun on Benny already.

    Talking She's home

    I am Missy's new mom and I just LOFF her!!! She is the sweetest thing! Her and my 2 y.o. little QH filly get along wonderfully! I turned them out together today and there were only a few squeals but then they were buddy buddy.

    I was standing outside the fence and Addi (my filly) and Missy were both coming over to say hi. Addi had a different idea. Addi kept Missy from coming over to me by cutting her like a cow, She had front legs spread and was really getting low. It was so funny! Addi was jealous (Addi is cutting horse bred and is very cowy). They worked it out and Missy was able to come over to me but not until some ugly faces were exchanged.

    Missy got a new Weatherbeeta blanket today because it is supposed to freeze tonight Found it on sale at Tractor Supply

    I am going to go after work and ride and take pictures!!!! I can't wait to ride her, it is really windy today so I am sure we will have lots of fun.

So tonight is Benny's night, course he gets hugs and carrots every night! Last night one of my sons was grooming him for me and Benny looked down at him like "Hello little person" "Give me the carrots and I might let you brush me and be in my presense... " Silly boy!
