Time is ticking!

I cannot believe that Midwest Horse Fair will be here in under 3 WEEKS!!!!!
I cannot express how excited I am to be bringing Sierra and showing everybody how AWESOME she is!!!

I have, irrvicably fallen in love with her and am crossing my fingers that we qualify for the Dawn Lapin Mustang Trainer Assistance Fund so that I can bring her back home with us at the end of fair and so I can continue to work with her and show her 1st Level Dressage this summer!

I am not getting my hopes up too soon, but as of right now, I will be EXTREMELY satisfied If we have the walk and trot mastered before fair. If she can figure out her leads by then that is an extra bonus!

Sierra's "Official" Name...

is "Bella-Sierra" and she is coming along NICELY!!!!

we are currently working on giving to leg- moving away from it. Today Dr. Borzinski from WI equine came out and Sierra was an ANGEL!!!!! I am really impressed with Dr. Lisa as well she spent a few extra minutes with Sierra, letting her know her smell, etc. After introductions Sierra stood like a lady while she had a coggins drawn, as well as recieved her 5 way and west nile vaccinations.

I am in the process of scheduling another meet and greet to take place in 2 weeks or so.

Sierra's Party Recap

Last night we invited friends and followers to the barn to see how far sierra has come, to help her get used to crowds, etc.


thank you to those that came in support of both of us!

We are now working on the back from the ground and she picked that up really quickly.

She really liked aunty amy and was an ANGEL she definately enjoys being at the center of attention! instead of getting nervous, upset, or spooky she LIVED FOR IT!

While everyone was there she stood still for the saddle, AND ME! =)

Due to requests from those that were unable to attend, we will be having another gathering again soon. I'll keep everyone updated!

thought i'd update everyone- as of 1:00 granny passed a BASEBALL sized poop and is doing well! =)

SUCCess yet I'm not as happy as i should be

Yesterday our 29 yr old pony granny started showing signs of being in distress- turned into colic- as of 11:30 today she has not passed regular manure for 26 hours- wth the exception of a small marble sized piece at 6:30 p.m. last night.

so worried about her and i was trying to keep her calm and talk to the vet my wonderful husband and mom went by sierra and was messing around with her. michael put my western saddle on her and got on with no issues. (at least no major ones) we have it on camera i guess I've got to upload it and take a look and will add to the blog.

so this would have been a REALLY exciting event but it has been overshadowed by granny's health scare
