My Birthday

This year for my Birthday, Neil asked me waht I wanted, kinda like he does every year.  Well this year I knew I wanted a one eared headstall, so I told him that and he just kinda looked at me funnay and said I dont know what that is.  I says good, and he was even more confused till I told him I wanted to pick it out.  he was glad of that since he had no idea what I wanted.

So last Saturday Charlenes friends from Saskatchewan were coming out for a saddle fitting at K and K Livestock and so I went down with them and picked out what I wanted, I was pretty sure before, but I actually picked the two ear one, which can be switched to one ear if I wanted.  I also got the matching reins.

After going to K and K, we stopped in Strathmore at Prarie Saddlery and Lammles because they were so close, and we saw Mario!!

He was sooo cool, and then he even posed for us to get his picture!!

After we got home, I rode Razz and she tried to buck on me, getting kinda cranky, but she got over it and it was fine after that.  I think I need to ride her by herself for a while so she gets out of the idea of stopping in the middle of the arena when someone else is working.  Shes coming along though and I do enjoy riding her, I just sometimes forget its been 8 months since anything has been done with her and she needs to get back into the working mode.

I rode her yesterday as well and she was a little better, not where I want her to be, but getting there.  I tried my new bridle on Gypsy and rode her in it and it looks so pretty on her, I will have to get her picture in it.  Shes coming along too, and its kinda fun to try new things on her and see what she knows.  So far, all I know for sure is she hasnt been backed in a while cause that had a lot of resistance.  And when I touch her with my leg she moves her shoulder, not her whole body or her hip, so we will work on that, but shes kinda fun to ride too.
