Wow, it has been so busy that I am neglecting the blog. The good news is the horses are going amazing. Crazy..oh lord how cute is crazy! He has gotten fitter and is holding his canter now. Getting him into it is still a bit of a challenge but it is coming. He is also learning to jump and is killing me with just how hard he is trying. He is just such a good boy.
Amanda and Crazy making the best face evah 🙂
No clue where his parts go but he is trying so hard. The lower lip is so funny.

Katzimo continues to be amazing. He went to his first show last weekend and was very good! Dressage he tried his heart out but tripped a few times. He has grabbed a heel on his shoe and that could have been the issue but also he simply struggles to canter and cantering + circles is still tough. It takes time when they have been in the field for 7 months to develop the strength. It is coming along and he is so nice to ride. Love him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He did so good jumping around at the show. He had never seen a xc fence or when alone but he was excellent.
He found to dressage to be very hard. He needed a nap and a snack 🙂 This is his signature off the farm post ride routine. His new owner must keep up with this!
We took these this weekend. My gosh he is gorgeous!
I had bought this helmet (because it fit well!) but the built in sunglasses have brought some humor to our group. Robocop helmet. Seriously, it rocks and you all are jealous. You know you want one!
Elusive Sky (my former resale project) went to his first show. His owner comes and helps me ride horses on the weekend but she only gets the weekends to ride while she is in school. He has battled with thoroughbred feet issues this summer. It was just amazing to see him out doing so well. They had a blast! He and Katzimo are both by Sky Mesa.
Sky is a bit of an overachiever 🙂 He will learn to relax and use his back instead of just rocket launching.
Jess helps me out with riding some of the horses (keeping Junior fit!) and she was competing Junior who hasn’t been out in a long time. She also hadn’t shown in a long time but they did great!!!!!!!!!!!
With the darn bugs and hot weather I gave the new boys a bit of a break but this weekend we are back to work.
I really am enjoying Tin Star. Amanda rode him and was amazed at the difference. He has relaxed and is starting to soften. This guy is going to be an eventing maching!
This was his first time jumping!
He still needs to relax and allow his back to soften and shoulder to come forward in the trot but it will come.
Blue Desert is now just over 2 wks off the track and boy is this one nice! He is just a 3yr and a bit over 16h. Such a cutie with good movement and a willing attitude. Nice jumper and I think he is going to go right up the levels.
Such a nice group of horses right now! All are for sale so pass them along. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you know anybody looking. Katzimo can head off to his new home after the symposium.
