Hals latest successes under saddle!

First of all, I am writing this update with the cutest chihauhua puppy on my lap while I listen to the two chirping banty chicks that we were handed a week ago to see if we could save them as their mother had abandoned them....It reminds me of Doctor Doolittle!

Well last week we went to the arena twice and the first time I have already written about. We went back Thursday and what a great day we had! I can't really say enough about how well Hal is doing under saddle! We had a great time reinforcing his trot and moved on to his canter. All I can say is WOW what a flowing canter he has. I am really enjoying that colt much more than I ever thought I would. I knew he was going to make someone a nice horse, but now I have an idea just how nice he is going to be!

Anyway, here are some pictures that Maria took for me of Hal and I doing our first canter lesson. he works on a loose rein, very responsive to leg pressure, loads easily, trims, bathes, he is just an all around nice gelding!

Ok, Now I can't resist showing off some other pics we got of Mia and Halie! Can't forget Desperado either I guess!
On the down side for Desperado(at least from his point of view), he is becoming a gelding today. My fairier once told me that a great stallion makes and even better gelding! I know Desperado has the makings for a good stallion, but I would rather see him trotting around a showring with a kid on his back and enjoying be rode around the country side without a worry in the world about whether that cute little palomino mare is in season or not! So here's to you Desperado, the cutest gelding around these parts!

Happy Trails!

A good day at the arena!

We loaded up 5 of our horses and ponies yesterday and had a great time down at the local arena. Maria rode her mare CH Shining Star and she pretty well, Michaela rode old Jazz and I got some great riding in on my black Arabian mare Mia Silk Hallany(Mia) who has been green broke for way to many years than I would ever like to admit to. Sufice it to say we both took time off to have a few babies each and now party time is over and it is time to get back to work for the both of us. I also got some pretty pictures of her while I had her cleaned up so here are some of them.

I also got a really good ride on her son Tritons Hallany Dream aka Hal who was sired by Skyviews Triton a Connemara . He made me proud by being willing to move out in a trot even by himself around the arena and he was steady and pretty even paced for not having done that before. I really like his gaits and movement. He was very easy to do a rising trot to and super easy to sit his trot. He also showed he had a nice slow easy jog/trot on his own so he should be able to do anything from english to western! I have lots of hope in this young black gelding! He is for sale but to the right show home. Email me if you are intersted. Hal is 14.3 pushing 15 hands and he is 3 years old so he may do more growing.

I also took Desperado our yearling stud colt to make it a full trailer load and he likes to go places anyway so he learned to load through the side door and make the 2 ft hop in with out being led in so he just jumps in while I stand beside him! What a sweet and easy pony he is proving to be! Anyway, I decided to try and get some cute pics of him, but it was not his day so they are kind goofy but oh well, you get what you get sometimes. He is also for sale to the right show home only.
His color is a rare Silver Bay/Sabino-Pinto/Rabicano roan. He is still intact but will be gelded this fall if he is not sold. $1500
Well it's time to get my day going, gotta go pick pears today and do more canning.....ugh.
Until next time, Happy Trails!

What we are up too these days!

Well, where do I start? I guess I could try counting all the pints of jam, quarts and half gallon jars of juice, the jelly, now working on fruit leather plus more juice.......I am so tired of looking at my kitchen these days! I have been in my kitchen all week and seriously need some riding time! I did sneek out Wednesday for a quick ride on Reno with Michaela on Jazz and looking for elderberries was my excuse. Wait a minute, do I really want to look for more berries? It's just that elderberries are so good and the jam is so good on fresh homemade bisuits in the morning.....yum!

So we have been busy as bees around here, well I have at least putting up some food for winter. The kids have started the school year so back to the books for them and they were so tickled when we got the email for their foreign language classes through Rosetta Stone! So yesterday was the first day of Swahili for Michaela, Portuguese for Maria, and Spanish for Hannah! So I of course had to take a small break from the kitchen to see how it worked and boy that was actually kinda fun for me too!

last week we took a few horses down to a local arena and had some fun with Jazz, Tucker and believe it or not, I rode Hal for the second time! He did pretty good, we even got to trot a bit so I was proud of him. We took some videos of him being sacked out and working under saddle with our group of horses and then we couldn't unload the vids from the camera we borrowed from a friend.....ugh. So now hubby says he is going to buy our own camera to do our own that will be fun! I hope to make it back down to the arena early next week so I can leave my kitchen behind me for a little while at least.

The little chihuahua puppies are growing like weeds now and they are so stinkin cute! They run around, bark their cute little barks and growl their cute little growls, wag their cute little tails! I can't believe we have to part with these little buggers! They love to play with our 3 yr old german shepherd Zoe and she of course just adores them and loves on them as much as mommy will allow her to. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can....what am I thinking about anyway? Oh well, the thought escapes me....oh ya, they are so cute! Wait, it was that we need to sell them darn it all!

So, back to the dungion...I mean kitchen I go and be the hermit I have become this week. At least I have some good cd's to listen too and the kids to keep me somewhat sain. Jarrom will read his books to me while I work and Gid sits at me feet on a stool with his work so doing the canning is not so boring with their little stories and ideas.

Well my apricotts are juicing, the fruit leather is drying and more canning jars are screaming for a washing, well not really but you know what I mean ok! If you don't know what I mean, come on over and you can help me can! While you are here feel free to help me clean my house after it being ignored all week with 6 kids in the house! UGH! Did I mention I am sain....I think!? Can Flylady just come clean my house for me every week so I can just play with ponies, puppies and kids all week, everyday, and play play play to my little hearts content? OK I better really get back to work!

Till next time, Happy Canning and Happy Trails from the little house in the 60 acre woods!
