I need to start posting more often!

Whoa I've been slacking in the posting department!  A lot has been happening lately.  One of dad's good friends died about a week ago and Sonny and I have been progressing in our horsemanship.  We are working on spinning and 2 days ago as I was asking him to spin I didn't watch where my feet were and now my right foot is black and blue from where he "spun" on it .  It made it so I couldn't play with him yesterday or today...  *growls* I'm just going to suck it up and play with him when I get home later.  The past couple of weeks I've been playing on/off with bowing w/out a treat.  He doesn't have much (if any) back muscle so I've had to take it very slowly to prevent injury.  For a while instead of going down into a bow he'd try to back up with 3 legs (I was holding one of them.) .  Now after a LOT of sweat and tears he's gotten the idea of 'bowing'.  YAY!!!!!  He doesn't go into a full bow yet.  B/c he isn't ready but all I have to do to ask him to try to bow is grab a front leg, bend it, and slowly draw it back and down towards the ground.  I am SOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!  After I've got going down into a bow fully I can then teach him how to lie down on command!!!!!!!  Enough with that now :) .
Sonny and I are also playing in L4 and L5 now!!!!  I can do some of the things on the L4 online assessment and a lot of the things on the L4 freestyle assessment!  I can some/most of the time ride him around bareback w/out a neck-rope and carrot stick!!!!!  WOO HOO!!!!!  I am so blessed with this awesome horse...

A Good Poem...

When you run so fast to get somewhere
you miss half the fun of getting there
if you worry and hurry through your day
it's like an unopened gift
thrown away
Life is not a race
Do take is slower
hear the music
before the song is over."
