Man i LOVE my job! I work as a horsetrainer at a Ranch here in Texas, they have about 42 horses, a lot of goats, donkeys, cats,dogs and all kinds of birds. Most of the horses has not been handled or ridden in a very long time. I decided they needed to be worked more, so on Monday i worked my favorite, Hansel the thoroughbred, in the roundpen for a while, then i tried to saddle her up, and she did not mind at all; bridle, saddle - she was a champ. Today i took her out for her first ride around the property, for a horse that hasn't been ridden in 8 years, she was GREAT! She walked around the entire property, without any bucking, rearing or taking off in panick. We also worked Gus the paint in the roundpen for a while today. Soon we will begin working the youngsters, they have never been handled and most of them are assholes.
Also, my husband got promoted yesterday! He is now a Warrant officer 2, i am so proud of him.
