  1. Internet Friends Who Ride

    Wow I haven't been on this site in a couple years! Last time I posted, Ryder was only a couple of months old... in 11 days we will be celebrating his 2nd birthday! Wow has time flown! If anyone is new here, will read back a little bit and see my name is Jamie. I used to post on here all the time. I got harassed alot on this site and finally had enough and got the FB's from the people I wanted to keep in contact with and left! Anyway, I still am with Brandon, we still live in town and I still have horses. At the moment, I still have my girl... Sheba a 13 year old gray mare that I do everything with. I still own Lady. The other mare I bought when I got Sheba.. she too is 13 years old. She is just ur average mare, broke to ride, not fancy, not registered, but does her job well. She also gave me my girl, Candy! Miss Candy. She is 8 years old this year. Where has time gone? She has been on the back burner for so long but after she has her 2015 colt she is going to be totally broke to ride and not just green broke! She gave me my beautiful filly, Dallie. She is out of the same stallion as my girl Bella :) My filly Dallie. She is out of the same stallion as my girl Bella and out of my mare Candy. I have big plans for this filly and I couldn't be any more happy with this cross. Candy is going back to be bred again to hopefully get me a colt this time! My girl Bella. She is an amazing horse. I have literally fallen in love with this horse! She is one of a kind and can't wait to see what her and her sister become! This is a shot of Bella and her 9 month old sister from today in their winter woolies! Not much else to update on, just keep plugging along at work and watching my son grow! We also lost a baby in June and would of been bringing home a new baby Feb. 25th but it just wasn't meant to be! So we will try again the end of this year :) We are also getting Candy bred to the same stud again this Spring. Otherwise life is pretty boring. Traveling when we can and just enjoying life! Our little family on a lil road trip the other day :) Hope everyone else is doing well! And nice to meet any of you that didn't used to post here!
  2. Guess I'll type up a update first and then I'll share some photos! - Most of you know that I had a huge problem when my son was born, the placenta quit working 2 weeks before he was born, doctor didn't catch it till I went in to be induced. Anyways, after a emergency c-section, a jet ride for Ryder to Denver NICU, him not breathing at birth, and only weighing 5 lbs. 11 oz. and me getting out of the hospital 3 days before I was supposed to.... Ryder is now a happy, healthy 19 pound 7 month old baby!!! He is crawling and trying to sit up on his own! He is everything I wished for and I love him so much! - Brandon and I are doing great, had plenty of amazing road trips this summer, didn't get to spend as much time riding as I would of liked but oh well.... - my mom us waiting to find out if she has cancer or not so please keep her and us in your thoughts and prayers please! - Promise went to the trainer finally and did okay. She reared and went over on the ground, never reared undersaddle but I think I am unconsciously scared of her.... I've only ridden her a handful of times since she came back... so I am thinking about getting rid of her someone else can enjoy her! - Bella is doing amazing... I rode her a few times after I could ride again after the c section, it took awhile before my stomach could handle all the bouncing lol Bella acted like she had been ridden every day since she came back from the trainer! - everyone else is doing great... I think I am going to sell Lady and find another riding horse this coming spring! We also got a new puppy for Ryder :) He loves her and she loves him too! it is sweet! Okay how about some pictures?! Ryder when he was first born- about 3 months old- about 6 months old- Ryder and his puppy Willow Bat baby! more coming!

  10. Internet Friends Who Ride

    Popping in with a quick update.. Ryder is 3 months old tomorrow already! wow! where has the time gone! he is so much fun! Promise is at the trainer... but she is having some head tossing issues. She went over (while being ground driven thank God) once because she freaked out when she was tossing her head... anyways, so Andrea is trying to work it out of her... if she can't, she is going down the road, that is way too dangerous and it is not fun to have a horse go over on you. Once in a lifetime was enough for me! And I'm too old for that crap lol I don't bounce anymore... Candy is FINALLY at the stud. Gerald really ticked me off cuz he tried to screw me over on the price. He told me LAST YEAR when Candy was originally going to get bred that Doc was 50, for me only and 200 for anyone else. The paint was 175 and the palomino stud was 300. Well we go out there and he's like so how much did we talk about? will 300 be enough for everything? I'm like um no you told me 50. He's like well I don't remember that so I said, well I guess I can just take her home then. He's like no no I want you to get a colt. So we are doing some work for him and it is going to be totally free. I just wish he would stop screwing me around... I really don't think we are going to go help him much more after we get teh "debt" paid off with Candy.. but should only be like 2 times working cows and that should pay for it... anyways he also has 2 colts on the ground. they were born the same day! Bellas' sister had a sorrel colt in the morning and the hurt mare had a palomino that afternoon! We are busy this week! work, helping Gerald and then heading to a car show on Saturday. I was talking to a friend of mine and I was complaining about how fat I am and they told me that if I don't like what I see in the mirror then I should change it... so I am. I started working out every day since the 1st. I started off slow.. couldn't even do 10 mins. the first day, but I finally got a full workout in yesterday! I sure am feeling it in my arms/legs and tummy... so maybe those muscles are getting tight and I can start riding again!!!! There are 2 diff. barrel races all summer long I am sooo bummed. There are usually NO barrel races! ugh! Picture time! Not bad for almost 3 months after baby... but I've got a LONG way to go I love this car! The baby bunnies!!!!!! I got all of them sold... one given away. And already have people interested in another batch so when they get weaned she will get bred again! I am really excited, they are getting so big! hanging outside with mom now and they scatter as soon as the door opens LOL they are sooo adorable! very hard to get pictures of now as well! The gray and white speckled one is the one that I gave away to Brandons' best friend gf, she got first pick and she picked that one and is naming it Milkdud LOL so cute! hanging outside with mom Ryder got to meet the horses finally! Our little family! Ryders' first camping trip he was infatuated with the fire... LOL More coming!

  16. Hey guys, if you remember back a month ago there was a post asking for prayers from a fellow BB ( LarksDashinForColor ) thank you so much for posting that btw and thank you everyone for your wonderful prayers and good thoughts! If you did not see that previous post here is what happened in a nut shell: I was due on March 5th (40 weeks-full term) Ryder still wasn't coming and I had a dr appt. that day and they told me I was only 1 1/2 cm dilated but due to high bp that I had been fighting this whole pregnancy, I had been on bed rest for 2 weeks prior to my DD. I was scheduled to be induced Tues. March 6th at 4 pm. At about 11am I started having horrible pains so my mom and Brandon came here to take me to the hospital. at around noon I was hooked up to machines, the heart monitor stopped but they found it again and then unfortunately it stopped again. That is when my dr came in and said we are doing a c section the baby is already stressed and we haven't even started the induction yet, I wasn't even in labor! ugh! So about 330 I was wheeled off to have a emergency c section... at 3:51... by 3:54 my son was born. Hours later, I woke up and just saw a picture of my son. They told me he wasn't doing well. I freaked out. They did cpr on him for hours. He was barely hanging on for life. They finally were able to get the tube (ventilator?) down his throat and he was then life flighted out on a JET to Denver CO. I saw him maybe a total of 10 mins. it was the scariest day of my entire life. I wanted to know what was going on with my son. Turns out I had developed pre clampsia, I had high bp, and the placenta had stopped growing when I was put on bed rest. so my son was living off his own body for 2 weeks. He was around 8 pounds, when he was born he was very skinny and only weighed 5 lbs. 11 oz. I thank God that the dr. induced me when he did because if he hadn't Ryder would have died for sure I spend 2 nights and 1 full day in the hospital and I was out of there on my way to see my son. He was still not breathing on his own but they had it on the lowest setting for 8 days and they took him off finally. He also had a feeding tube in for a few days but started to eat really well on his own in no time and took a bottle very quickly. Turns out he had some seizure activity before they transferred him to Denver... therefore they had to do tests on his brain which was scary. They are doing a follow up test when he's 6 months. He started gaining weight and doing really well. the only thing that was keeping him in the NICU was that his platelets were so low. 2 weeks later, everything checked out and we were finally released. By the time we got him home he was already on a schedule and had already gained over a pound :) Ryder is now over 6 weeks old and is doing fantastic. We have had no problems with him and he is growing like a weed! he weighs 8 pounds 5 oz. now and has gained a inch in height! He holds his head up and has been doing that since he was a week old! he now will stand with support and scoots across the floor already! he is one heckuva trooper and he hit the ground running! He also is smiling now and will "talk" to you. I love him so much and don't know what I would have done if they told me he had passed. Those 2 weeks were the hardest I have ever had. I had my mom there with me but when the father of your newborn baby and the love of your life cannot be there to hold you and comfort you was the worst thing in the whole world. I was very depressed but I was trying to be so strong for our son. I would see him every day and hold him and tell him how much we loved him and that I couldn't wait to take him home. I would go home and cry and cry and I wouldn't eat a thing. I lost 30 pounds since he was born.... I don't know how much was him and how much was the depression but either way I am back to my pre pregnant weight! I somehow managed to get thru those 2 weeks by myself... I felt so alone. I lost so many friends and I had maybe 3 people text me and ask how I was doing. I had MANY prayers from HC friends on here and on my fb. I want to thank you guys so much. Without everyones' kind words and prayers I don't know how I would of done it. My best friends that I have known for years didn't even ask how I was or the baby. I haven't even seen them. I'm trying to move on and get over it but its so hard. I love my son and I wouldn't change anything! We did so much blood work trying to figure out why this happened to us. We are still waiting on the results. Sorry for the story book! Pictures are next

  20. Internet Friends Who Ride

    Hey guys... Glad everyone is doing well! Hope you all are getting some riding time in! I'm having some BEAUTIFUL weather over here.... see! even got to have the top down! and don't worry, Ryder wasn't in the car, he was with grandma yesterday!!!! Today it's supposed to be 95... yesterday it was 85-90!!! it is scary!!! I do not like it being this warm already!!!! Skipa- soo glad your mom came back a ok! cancer is the worst thing ever. my grandma has(hopefully HAD) it and my dad has it too.... cancer sucks!!!! Update my way- We went to the branding but I didn't get to ride :-( it was a total bummer! Gerald didn't even have a horse for me caught.. but it wasn't that nice anyways, it was pretty windy. boo! and I got BURNT! ugh. I took a ton of pix they are on fb. I will post a few on here for anyone that didn't see em on fb. Ryder is doing great!!!! getting so big! I love him so much! I got my genetics testing done yesterday and I got 3 shots as well! I am feeling it today. I got MMR, DTP, and a chicken pox shot. the MMR hurt the worst. it bruised my arm and my arm still hurts... well they both do now! the MMR hurt the whole time and still does. i can't believe it, i've never had a shot hurt that bad before!!!! no wonder why poor babies scream! anyways... then I went to the hospital to get blood drawn for the genetics testing... i was there for like 30 mins... the first lady poked me in the right arm and tehn couldn't find a vein so started poking around while she was in there. i was getting mad. then she finally took it out and grabbed another lady to do it instead and she got it first try. but then it took them FIVE minutes to draw my blood, took TWENTY viles. holy heck I've never had that much blood drawn before. but it's for a good cause... gotta prevent what happened with Ryder from happening with the next one! Uhh my baby shower is this Saturday so getting kinda excited for that. We are getting our new car tonight... which is realllly exciting! Also going to do aLOT of riding this week.... I plan on riding every day but Wednesday cuz I have a dentist appt. that day boo! Going to take Candy and Sheba to the barrel race on the 5th and 6th but will only be coming home with Sheba. Candy is going to go get bred by Bellas' daddy, Doc. Gerald thinks the paint is sterile so he is getting him cut this week. His attitude is really bad too Gerald said he will be a better gelding. lol. but I think Candy and Doc will make a beautiful baby for Brandon!!! and the bad news... I go back to work the 8th!!!!! ugh. I'm so not ready but I gotta make money!!!! But on a good note, not much will change. I'll just be working in the afternoons/evenings! but on a good note with that, I got a raise! whoo hoo! So onto some pictures! ya know all my posts are worthless without pix! lol baby calves Mr. Doc the paint stud Flow Lena, Bellas sister (who is veryyy preggo) and Merada miss Lena Ryder on the computer... lol he actually hits the keys!!! few more coming!
