Other Neglegted Ponies

Sometimes I feel like I am not ever posting about any ponies that I am not really doing anything with.  So here is an update on everyone except Jamaica and Dinero.

I'm sure I said this before, but every morning I give my ponies a little bit of oats (that they don't really need) just so I make sure they are up and I can get a good look at them.  This works really well in case someone got injured or if I want to ride one that day, they are waiting at the gate.

Jazz is still friendly, walking up to me every time I go out there, but nicely she will no come right up to me, she waits for me to pet her which I greatly appreciate.  Even though she wants me to scratch her, she waits just an arm length away for me to make the first move.

Belle is same as always, just close enough for oats but prefers me not to scratch her (although sometimes I do and it surprises her every time I just scratch and don't catch)  And Disco is a noisemaker, even if I can't see the horses she whinnies so I know she is out there.

And Casino is growing like a weed! She is now just about 2 1/2 months old and her bum is so big!  she is very pretty, just like her daddy.  I guess that's the pleasure breeding makes them look feminine.  I was talking to a lady at the wedding dance last Saturday night who bred her mare this year to Casinos sire (Redford's Blue Chip) in order to get a taller pleasure horse.  And I forgot till she mentioned it that he was very pretty, not stud like at all, more feminine like.  Which is amazing for such a big horse.

And Razz I think is wondering why I took Dinero to ride instead of her, but I don't want to ride her inside and she gets boarded all winter, I think she needs some downtime in pasture too. 

And Kali, really haven't done much with her, keep meaning to call a trainer to get her in but just keep forgetting or putting it off or something (I am a chicken, I admit, I don't really like others riding my horses so it's easier just to not phone even though I know it is what she and I need)

And Bailey, still haven't rode her much this year, and probly won't.  And Neils horse, George, he is same old same old.  I do think he is surprised he isn't boss horse anymore since I put Razz out there.  Razz was boss last summer when she had a foal and as soon as she walked out into that pasture he walked away from her so same all over again.  But they hang out together so I guess no hard feelings there.

Well this afternoon plan on riding Dinero again then work with Jamaica, yesterday I sprayed his tail and hopefully it will be not to tangley I can brush it.  Then Saturday is the Hayes Brothers Sale and another wedding dance.

I think your horses are just enjoying life. Casino is a pretty girl, you shouldn't have any trouble selling her.
What trainer are you thinking of for Kali- can you just go for lessons or do you have to leave her there?

I was thinking of Doug Rheinhart, he is in Irricana so I was hoping I could go take lessons while she is there.
