I know I’m not the only person in the world that seems to be running in a hundred different directions at a time. There are times when life is just completely crazy. I am currently working a full time job along with substituting as a bus driver at the school. I am also still taking on some horses for clients. And to add to the pile of stuff I have to do, I have three teenagers and a husband. But alas things have slowed down a little for me at this moment. The kids are on Christmas break, so they can help out by doing most of the housework and cooking. Also because it is Christmas break there is no substitute bussing right now. And I have told all my clients that are wanting horses to be worked with that I will be waiting until it starts to stay light a little longer before taking on any new horses. So since things have slowed down a little, let me catch you up on what has been going on in my little horsey world.
Another New Addition
Yes I adopted another baby. This one is a tri-color pinto mustang. I struggled with a name, but have finally settled on “Meeko”. It means strength and very wise. He is six months old and was born in captivity in Nebraska. He is such a little cutie. I’ve gotten a lot done with him in the few days I’ve gotten to work with him since I’ve brought him home. He still isn’t too keen on being caught, but he is getting much better. In no time at all he will be an attention hog like my other boys.
About My Other Boys
Dollar is the same old Dollar. He didn’t ridden much this last year, but he still does great. I took him to a versatile ranch horse clinic last month. He did great. They also had a show the day after the clinic, but I wasn’t able to make it to the show. The clinic was composed of four different sections: trail, cow work, ranch horse pleasure, and reining. Dollar proved himself to be pretty good in all four. I’m really looking forward to taking him to a few events in the next couple of years. Dollar is also a great horse just to have around for kids to ride.
Chrome is doing great just being a colt. He is always looking for attention and is just a little jealous of Meeko. The other day I looked at pictures of Chrome when I first brought him home. He was so sleek. Now he’s just a fur ball and has gotten so big.
Cheveyo Wynn, aka Oakie, has also gotten fuzzy. I was also looking at pictures of him when I first got him, and he doesn’t even look like the same horse. I have done so much with him over the past months. I even put a couple of rides on him, but with my busy schedule, I have decided to wait until spring to put more hours on him.
Okay, well that’s about all that has been going on in our little world. I will try to keep you updated on how everyone is coming along. Until then Merry Christmas.
