I'm so happy to be settled in at this new house! I took some pictures of the tulips in our front yard and I had to share 'em. They are "Red embossed" tulips if I'm correct. Becca, hoping to plant your lillies today.
Tootsie was baaaaaaaaaaad today! She is really cute, but LAZY! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! She stands 14 hands high. She's probobly the smartest horse in the barn! I can't describe her, it would take a long paragraph. Here's apicture, though.
Have you ever had that kind of friend, where you both know you each have differant best friends? There's a lot of honesty in a relationship like that. For instance neither of you say "Oh, yeah soandso, you're my best friend!" But what if you have too many friends like that? You start to feel lonley and rejected. What if you're best friend is a girl who has a differant best friend? You feel alone, like you really have no friends. But when all your friends ignore you, you can always find a friend in Jesus. And if you're just carefully vigulant enough, that girl who sits alone in youth group, or church, or school, normally needs someone just like you. Also beware that your pride in having a lot of friends doesn't blind you from that person to whom you are their best friend, but is feeling very overlooked by you. I found this with a girl by the name of R. Stone at youth group. She is more loyal a friend than I've ever seen in anyone else. Thanks a bunch R.Stone for sticking with me! Sorry I've been a jerk to you.
Well, our whole family got sick with noro virus. It's not pleasant. You basically spend the night on the bathroom floor.
Then comes the cramps, the stomach squeezing, etc.
But I'll really try not to go too far into it. Trust me you don't want the details. So this means no stables on Wednesday, or youth, or riding Friday. The sickness only lasts 24 hours, but you're contagious for two days after.
Well I've been having a horsey holiday! I have now officially cantered the tallest horse in FEC barn. I just did. His name is Bob and he's really cute!
He's 15 hands high, whatever that means to you. That's him in the picture. Well, that's him from last summer. He's been rescued from an abusive thoroghbred racer/owener. He's fineand he's filling out quite nicley now. He's a terrible barn horse, but once you get on him he's amazing! I walk-trot-cantered him today. But I'm not a very good rider so that's saying something. His nicknames include Obber-bobbers, sabobbers, bobbie boy, and handsome boy.
This is a picture from last summer, at Cordous State Park. It was a fun day, we came to the park for lunch but none of us wanted to eat! We wanted to romp and play on the tempting green grass and the sparkling lake. We had a lot of fun but we also got really wet! Haha, unfortunatly (Not) we don't have any pictures of me that day. I was so wet it was embarresing! I, uh, erm, fell into the water and came up sputtering and choking, I was so wet! But I can't say I didn't have fun. It was a really warm day, so the water felt really good. :P
As many of my up to date blog readers may have noticed, I REALY feel a strong attraction to horses. On December 16th, 2009, I cantered a horses for the first time. Here is a video of my second lesson cantering. I was very tense, and I won't say I looked like a pro, but I really felt like one. FYI, the horse I'm cantering is Slick.
We went to wall-mart on the 18, we were expecting a storm on the 19th, supposedly two feet. It was a nightmare to say the least! We waited in line to check out for about thirty minutes. All the milk was gone, and the lines were insane! Enjoy the pics, I'd say these are worthy of forwarding.
