Woops its been awhile

Christmas is only 4 days away and I havnt started christmas shopping!! lol! I have no money anyway - I just used it (not wasted it) to get tickets for me and bren to supergroove + Elemeno P on boxing day AND the feelers at Waihi on NY eve! Lasy year we couldn't go (we were only 17) but now the only thing we CANT do being 18 is go to a casino! Which is probably a good thing.
I don't know if cruize is coming to the beach with me yet - im guessing if he does we will go over on xmas eve and come back the monday after NY? Hes not very fit tho so I can't really take him for long gallops on the beach. Hes in 100000xxxx better condition this summer than last tho (weight wise)

Anyway, I feel honored as geegees asked (but more like let me :D) do sonic and annies morning "shifts" while she is away this w/e with Bowie at Taupo (GO BOWIE!) Sonic is the lil filly with a spermy on her head and enough attitude for her and atleast 2 more foals! She was a twin (but other foal died about 3 months before she was born) and was born 2 weeks early (on the same morning as the cute lil palo foal a few posts down). She is just starting to accept me into her box with her happy face on (eg ears FORWARD) cos she had taken to backing up and (after a good few seconds getting her balance and preparing) would hunch her lil bum and just get off the groud. She got me once - well I think she did - it was so pathetically cute! :D

Anyway I took a few photos of her thismorning - but they all turned out pretty bad, when she was on the grass. She is very small and looked like she was growing to me when she was in the stable but she is still a lil bugger. (I am seriously considering stealing her)
The other horses are random horses arond the farm when I went on my (me feeling important) walk to check the horses lol

Cruize Kicks Ass!

Cruize over the wall

I forgot to update this last (thurs? I think) when me and a friend went to AR and were jumping the lil XC jumps. Cruize hadnt jumped more than the odd Xrail at home for AGES. Anyway, first jump I did in the dressage saddle (I don't have a jumping one) and I fell off lol!! So I did the rest bareback. Cruize jumped ANYTHING i pointed him at! He was great. he loved it too and was easy to stop! Also I only fell off one more time over a random jump that he took off too early then did a funny ump so thats ok lol

BUT even more exciting!! Yesterday me and Gina went to LVF to ride (i've never actually ridden there before, and only been there once) after Gina rode (her lovely big mare) she let me use her jumping saddle (Gina rocks!) which didn't fit too badly. Considering poor cruize is incredibly unfit, he did pretty well. Was a bit silly and wanted to go round with his head in the air, but was jumping good (ish). He stopped at a few things, which was totally my fault because I wasnt commited. But anyway gina made me jump a few things I would never even consider!! lol! She took frikn awesome as photos, so now I finally have some cool as photos of cruize jumping!! I think i'm going to have to go out there more often.

ALSO!!!! Cruize is apprently AUSTRALIAN!!! I thought he was by Famous Star out of starring, but apprently hes not. So hopefully going to find out who my Cruizeamas's real parents are lol

(picture overload sorry lol)

Its offical

I had my leavers dinner last night. Offically the last time I will be surrounded by all those people. YAY!! lol

Cruize went lame for a day or 2, but is ok again now. Silly horse. I rode him for the first time in ages and he was actually really good. Can't wait to get him fit and get a jumping saddle!
Also ATM ive been trying to teach him to smile (for the last 3 weeks)
We had a break through last night. He picked up his lip without me touching it! Considering at the start he wouldn't even twitch it when I touched it - we have come along way! lol I am proud of myself for not giving up on this trick - like I have with so may others. So this "holiday" (not sure where it ends lol) I WILL teach him to stand on the box, spanish walk and bow with me on him - along with smile. Because just bowing and picking up his legs aint that impressive. Thats about it. :)

Cute lil palo. foal!! Born that morning
