i havent been on here in a while and a lot has happened in that time.

i had a competition 2 weeks ago (the Vermont Spring Classic) and even though me and my horse didnt place it was really fun.

today i am going to pick up my horse from another barn. she was there to be bred....i cant wait for the baby!

we do have another new baby though...born may 8th its a bay colt with a star and snip and 2 white hind legs. havent named him yet...i'll try to get some pics on here.

Horse showing....wait, I remember that! It's where you get your horse all pretty and put him in a trailer and take him somewhere and win ribbons!!!!

Yeahhhhh...now my horse just looks at me like "Go to hell" when I go to bring him in. I don't blame him, I haven't ridden much at all. Besides...I can't find my blasted hunt coat but I think my sister "borrowed" it for Halloween. Grrrrrrrr.....

This is the song that never ends...

I guess horses and bettas aren't too far apart...this sickened me.

I will warn everyone. This brings up a video that shows extreme cruelty, plain stupidity and a few pictures that I'm not sure why they're on the except the horses are just plain badly bred.

By the way to those those unclear on the subject: This is the result of trying to educate the stupider ones and be patient about it. The government finally stepped in and passed a few bills, unfortunately they took the wrong steps first and made a bad problem worse. What needs to be done is regulation of breeding, harsher punishments at shows for those who mistreat their horses (and yes, soring IS abuse!!!!), and god knows they needs to regulate the end-of-life care too.

This is the song that never ends...

yea i think horse abuse is a big problem, they are animals that need alot of care, more then your average house pet, and i dont think people realise that. thats why ive decided not to pester my parents about getting a horse anytime soon, as i know that right now i have no time to care and ride him/her, and i only want to get a horse when i know more about the care plus have well educated people around me that can help me along the process and know what they are talking about, plus i want to be in a house where i know ill be for a while. my friends keeps her horse at a stable that takes in a lot of rescues and they are skinny as ever, but lovely horses. thanks for posting :)

edit: could only watch a quater before exiting. those horses who are so skinny is what upsets me. :( . i also work here at a dog shelter and some of the cases are terrible (alot of skinny and sunburnt dogs), im just very lucky that i havent seen the worst cases in my 1 and a half years of being there.

yea i cant stand animal cruelty. no matter what kind of animal it is. they dont deserve to be treated like that.

i found this on youtube a few days ago...I cant believe they allowed it!!!! i cant wait to sign the petition!

what really shocks me is that no 1 in the museum did anything!

edit: the dogs eventually died on display in the museum
