Trying this again!

Hi. I'm 42, live in Austin, TX and work at a job where I sit most of the day. I joined to try and get a better handle on my diet and spend more time with the horse

I've been working like crazy and eating not so great as a result so want to try and improve again. I've done Spark before and it worked I just need to stay with it. Spark has proven to me how big a deal some small changes are though.

Also I'm trying to save money as I bought a new house.

Wow! I AM impressed with your new colt's pedigree! He is an own grandson of Peppy San Badger? (Little Peppy) There aren't too many weanling foals around that can claim that! Smart Little Lena in the background doesn't hurt either.
So glad that you are going to have more time to spend on Spark! I look forward to hearing from you more often! Will keep you updated on my experiences with "Peanut!". emoticon

Glad you got the colt if you just adore his sire! How is he bred? My new horse is cutting bred, with Hollywood, Doc Bar, and Poco Tivio bloodlines plus some Hancock breeding on the bottom. I don't think I could stay on a cutting horse either! Especially now that my balance doesn't seem to be what it used to be.

Have fun with him while you have him. That's just the way it goes at work sometimes! Just when you start something new, life gets busier! Good luck and keep in touch!! emoticon

How did you end up with a weanling? They are a lot of work, I know, as I bred and raised horses for over 20 years! It is rewarding though, to go on and win with a foal that you bred and raised!

Peanut, my new horse, is perfect for me. If I could choose the perfect mount for me, he would be it.. He is short (about 14 hands or a little less) pretty to look at (a red roan with 2 white socks behind) and kid broke gentle, and steady on the trails, which is the primary reason I want a horse........to trail ride! Plus, he has brains, seems to think and not just react to everything!

I agree, it is uncomfortable when a horse drops his shoulder like that. My trainer was always teaching us how to frame our horses up and make sure that they weren't dropping their shoulders or cheating on us! I only have to remember now, how he told us to do it! emoticon
