My Horse Forum
I have appeared on these forums as Reinsaway, jabigail96, Belgianlover, BLMustang, and possibly others? Almost always under false pretenses that I at least partially truly believed. ( Or made myself to believe? ) I abused this amazing platform, and as I'm healing I increasingly am haunted by the crushed feeling of every time I was found out, or I realized I was blatantly creating these scenarios sometimes even involving real horses with whom I had no connection, and I feel all of you deserve an explanation. I'm not asking for sympathy, or to ever be allowed back here, I just want to make things right. (Sorry for the length)
So about three years ago now, I was in a really bad spot. The psychological abuse I have suffered since birth at the hands of my mother, and later my father and stepmom (I wont go onto details) Led to me seeking any outlet that might make me feel like I really existed, drifting into full psychosis at times.. but unfortunately this often left out any sense of...
It's funny seeing all these foals pop up "born" on January 2nd and 3rd. Seen a few cutting horses, and now American Pharoah's first born. Seems awfully close to being a 2016 baby! But you know how you can talk those mares into waiting till new year's!!
Figured I should do a quick update on my new girl.
So I bought her as a 7 y/o fixing to turn 8 year old 14.2 hony, and found out she was a recently turned 6 y/o 15hh horse.
Once she cleared her vet visit and all that other stuff I was cleared to move her into the barn. Did intros over the fence and all that fun stuff in an adjoining paddock. Initial turn out went very well, a bit of running around on her part, minimal drama when the others approached. Appeared to be a pretty smooth transition. Then someone went and bit her in the lady parts a few days later right after evening turnout. So we kept her in at night the last couple of nights, which she is fine with except during turnout when she decided she was going to go out and jumped the stall door. A scrape but otherwise fine. Now her window gets closed. Aside from evening turnout she is quite content to stand and eat hay, and suffer me treating her lady parts. She takes that as well as can be I suppose, doesn't offer to kick,...
I wanted to make a thread about my horse Flash, as he grows and eventually something to follow once I start breaking him. He is a Dutch Harness Horse and my main focus for him will be dressage. I tend to get pic heavy in the spring/summer so most of my updating will be then I'm sure!
Here are some pics starting when I first got him at 6 months old - he is now over a year and half.
He has gone through some pretty wonky growth spurts lol
So far I have handled him a lot this past summer. Mostly grooming, a little bit in hand (walk, trot, whoa beside me), introductions to tarp, and he loves swimming! He's great with dogs, I bring my shepherd out to the farm with me and play with his "chuck it" while...
