In this week’s vlog, I have some fun with my 2016 Retired Racehorse Project Horse Henri (who earned 2nd in the Eventing division). It’s really important to play with your horse. It builds relationship, and helps you to identify and nurture natural strengths. In the feed room, I discuss how I use feeds from BuckeyeContinue reading “My Feeding Program”
First horse show EVER for baby mustang Emit, and the first show of the season for ‘black dragon’ Johnny (this is how each season begins). The schooling show at the Georgia International Horse in Conyers, GA was great experience for green bean OTTBs Henri and Indy as well. Buy disposable ice bags here >> http://amzn.to/2h1tJqB
Indy (aka Indiana Chrome) and Henri (aka Heron’s Waltz) compete at the Rocking Horse Fall Horse Trials in Altoona, FL. Bright Water (aka ‘Teddy’) gets worked. I continue my quest to improve my sleep with a search for the perfect pillow.
Henri earns second place in the eventing division at the Thoroughbred Makeover and is rewarded with his favorite feed from Buckeye Nutrition. I try on some new safety equipment (‘shoulder bras’) thanks to my friends at Soteria Equestrian Safety. I blow a trailer tire an hour away from home.
Pocket sneezes…A LOT! I pick up a new old trailer. Indy goes schooling and gets REALLY good at breaking lead ropes.
Ozzie ‘graduates’ and is sent home to his owner, Ginny Grigsby. I buy a new horse, an off the track thoroughbred named First Chant, whom I call Joey. Henri finally learns how to sit. This is probably the mot difficult video I’ve had to make, and is dedicated to my nana Frank Drummond Youngblood, whoContinue reading “New Beginnings and Tearful Goodbyes”
My OTTB Henri (aka Heron’s Waltz) learns a super fun new trick just before taking a field trip to Chattahoochee Hills for some show jumping practice. Raymond McCrea Jones visits the farm to take some amazing portrait of some of the horses, and Ozzie gets his teeth done, thanks to Dr. Nash.
My new thoroughbreds are RIDICULOUS! We’ve had a great week of training, with lot of new experiences. Indy is starting to learn that not all ground is flat and that horses are actually all terrain vehicles. Henri has HUGE potential. As I encourage his sense of curiosity, his playful personality is really starting to shineContinue reading “Off The Hook Thoroughbreds”
