  3. Feeling Better About It All!

    I recently broke up with my BF and was feedling so down about it....But realized that it wasnt anyones fault but our own. We let our family come between us and ruin our realsionship. But now that i have been alone for a week or so and have spent some time on ME, i have realized that it was for the best and that i am too young to worry about a man. I let him come between the things that i love. My family and my horses. I have decided to just go out have a good time not worry about having a steady BF , spend time with my family and work with my horses and continue to show and rodeo. Ya only live once right. So why worry about being tied down at twenty??!!!

I couldnt take the remarks she was making anymore. And he for some reason started taking up for her and he had never done that before. I tried everything to make it work But it just wouldnt nothing would.

  20. Colic...where Did This Come From?

    The funny thing is my mare stays up all yr round cause the sun and flies during the summer infects her blue eyes even with a fly mask...She is always up always has been since she was a baby. She is a small mare small build...her average weight is around 1000 pounds...My bales weigh 75 pounds a piece so they are not small a pat can be all different sizes depending on the hay and how big the bale is. She is only 15.3 hands tall...she is a small girl.

  24. Texting

    I text alot mainly to my BF and a few close freinds But what i HATE is the FWD's that are constantly coming in. I get them day and night. I actually made my own forward telling ppl not to send me FWDs anymore and aint got a one since. I am one of the text drivers i try my best not to do that but if im in the car for a long period of time then.....you know i gotta text. I never text when riding my horse. I leave it on silient in my pocket i dont want any distractions.
