I galloped Louie (the horse I ride) today! And he is CRAZY fast! In the arena I was trying to canter and he was just charging around not listening, and I got so mad at him because he wasn't listening. Then I kind of had a breakdown (why? IDK) and started crying and apologizing to him for pulling on his face so hard (he doesn't have a bit, he has a hackamore) and wishing I could gallop him except I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to stop him. But somehow I knew that he just really needed a good gallop since I've been holding him back the past few days so I finally did and it scared me so badly at first because he went so fast. My instructor said he's the fastest horse she's ever had/ridden and she has an OTTB (Louie is a Spanish Barb). So we galloped up a hill twice (oh, and my instructor doesn't know lol because she was packing her trailer and I was riding alone) and he was so happy. He always carries his tail high when he's happy so that's how I know.
Now I think I'll gallop him regularly because it's a ton of fun...but next time I'll put on his galloping boots (and maybe bellboots if he keeps his shoes (he doesn't normally have them but he got shoes because he was footsore the day before a show) )because he is old, after all XD.
And I caught, held and released a frog today.
My LPS SAID they were getting HMs 3 weeks ago. And they didn't. And now they realized that they were selling PKs and they're now selling them for $6 >.<
And they have 4 white/platinum PKs that they're selling as "Platinum HMs"
They aren't even HMPKs, let alone HMs.
@Betta Slave-that stinks lol. I have pretty big hands and I can reach an octave plus a key on the piano. Your hands...they will grow! Lol XD
EDIT: wow, sorry for all the run on sentences. I was excited...
