3 and a half months down....

7 and a half to go! I took new photos of the pretty girl today. She definitely enjoys the attention although it was very difficult to get her to stand still for pictures!

Cross Country

Since we have been following Roz I figured I woud post some pictures and video of him today. He was a STAR!
Have you ever met a cuter 18yr old thoroughbred!?! Alright...I am pretty partial! 
Landing from the ditch
What an adorable pony!
Helping me get Pie through the water
Now they are having fun!

Jumping the barn-I think this one is the biggest one Erin has ever jumped.

Rozzy Ridge

Since there isn't always new and exciting stuff to post about Miss Roxy (other than her hanging in that pasture with her friends) I decided to post about Roz tonight. He and Erin had a lesson earlier this evening and did so well! He hasn't really been jumped enough the last couple of years due to many different things. At this point my goal is to have him jumping twice a week. He got to jump on Sunday this week and was pretty decent. Today he was AWESOME! He was really quiet and well behaved which was nice. There was one scary fence which they had never jumped together. He used to be fine with it but last summer and earlier this year he was a little spooked by it. I warned Erin a little bit and set them at it. He did refuse it the first couple of times but was not dirty or crazy about it and the third time through he hopped right over!

They were able to canter courses and I got to move some fences up as well. Roz is really a jumper at heart so normally as the fences get a bit bigger and he starts to canter he really gets hyped up! He was very quiet and nice today which makes it so much easier when you are learning to jump. Here are some pictures and a short video from today. We are all going cross country schooling on Saturday so that should be a lot of fun!



Isn't he beautiful!?!

Pictures!

I found Miss Roxy's missing mask today and tried to take some pictures while she folled me around the field. Does she look pregnant? I think she is around 80 days....

The Most Beautiful Pregnant Mare

I plan to get new pictures of the gorgeous girl tomorrow. I got to spend some time with her today and she was such a sweetheart. Apparently she lost her fly mask out in her field and it has yet to be found. Silly mare.
