So I may be part mule

Wow, did I ever do it today.
Mum took me out to put some stuff in my mane to help it grow back really nice but at that exact time the man on the red tractor was bringing my dinner in to my field.
I was pretty hungy, it had almost been a complete 5 minutes since my last bite to eat and I was in the danger zone for withering away to nothing.
So mum took me up to the barn because it was raining a little bit but I just kept thinking about that whole round bale I saw going into my feed bin. I danced around and stomped my foot in displeasure for being in the barn and then one of those terrifying "kittens" as they keep calling them made a sudden movement and I had a little moment of panic.
Mum decided to bring me outside, apparently to make this process quicker, I thought it meant we were doing some work as we were in the arena where we always ride or do some form of ground work. I still need groundwork from time to time because I tend to forget my manners and I am a pretty big girl.
Anyway, thankfully mum is not a big fan of leaving me tied so she turned me loose in the arena while she went over to get the stuff she wanted to put in my mane.
I took off running like a racehorse, you should have seen me go.
On my way back up to the opening of the arena mum shouted "Whoa" and I know this means STOP NOW. So I tried, but I had such good speed at this point that I did a little bunny hop and decided to try to clear the fence.
My front end made it over beautifully but since I had slowed down from the Whoa I didnt have good distance so I landed on the fencing. I broke 2 boards and ran back down to where my supper was.
The gate was closed so I decided to stop and eat some grass while someone came to let me back in.
Well, this didn't go quite as planned, the man who owns the place that I live at was going to put me back in but mum said " NO WAY, Shes not going to get away with that" she marched up to me, gave me a pat on the neck and with out saying a word walked me back up to the EXACT place I just escaped from.
Things went a bit bad here.
Now I had a lunge line on with the chain over my nose ( you dont act up with the chain on your nose let me tell you) and now I had to listen to different commands.
Mum gave a firm " Walk on" so I started walking, she backed into my path after just a few steps and made me stop. Then again " walk on" this time I went around a few times until the singing "Turot" came... MAN... now I had to trot around. Mum again backed into my path right away making me stop from a trot. On I went again once I heard the command.
She had me in a canter, down to a trot, to a walk to a canter ( I dont like that transition its a bit hard) then back down to a trot and a walk. Then we did it all over again in the other direction.
It was pouring rain and mum was soaked. I'm sure she was pretty mad at me so I didnt push anything and just did as she asked.
We finished up quick enough and mum turned her back to me so I went over and joined up. Even though I know she was fuming mad, she still reached over and gave me a pat on the neck and a treat.

Then she walked me over to the spot I broke ( it was already fixed up, man those barn owners are fast) she gave me a quick grooming in the rain and I stood with my head low. Then she put the smelly stuff on my mane and asked me to back up. I threw my head up in displeasure so she made me REALLY back up. I gave her the peace offering of a chew chew lick of my lips to show I was listening and she took me back down to my supper.
I think I may have over reacted a little bit and I do have a bit of a sore belly from landing on those boards but now its full and I'm a happy horse again.
I have a feeling though that mum will be back tomorrow to make me do a little more work for that one. Oh well, its alright, shes fair with me and never pushes me too hard.
Better keep eating since I know I will burn some energy tomorrow.
Take care everyone.
Miss Fe

I hear we are going home in a month... I dont know what that means but it sounds like something that might be fun.

Its been months

Mum apparently forgot about letting us blog since we moved to another home and mum got her new job which takes her all over the place and we have to stay at the sitters.
Our sitter is great, if we can't be home we want to be no where else than Nancys.
We get to play with some crazy boxers when mum brings us there. Its fun.

Our new house is great when ever we are there. Its much smaller and harder for us to mess up with our shedding fur but we try our hardest. One of the cats didn't move with us, Moxer man stayed behind, he didn't want to leave and the new people that moved in our old house wanted him to stay too.
We have neighbours at our new house too, a man and his wife who live across the road and cause mum to get headaches. Karma barks too mean at him and mum is terrified she ever gets free and goes near him. She feels something from him and wants him to know she says he is NOT welcome to come over.

We still havent seen our horses in ages, mum has said that Beauty has sold. Wonder what young horse she was getting into trouble with fencing with at her new home.
Hopefully her new owners will be good people, sounds like they are.

Speaking of horses, mum keeps talking about this horse named Pheonix, he sounds nice, hope I can meet him someday.

Well looks like mum is going to bed again, she must have to go to "work" again in the morning, i better go get some snuggle time in with her and the bad man

Now that she has been reminded to let us blog I hope she will let us on more often.

Everything is in boxes

We have no idea what is going on here. Mum and the bad man are not really paying any attention to any of us anymore. All the horse stuff is long gone but mum still comes home sometimes smelling like them. I heard mum telling the bad man that Fay needed to have her teeth floated and this is prolly why she has gotten so skinny over the past month or so. What ever teeth floating is, it sure doesn't sound nice at all. I feel bad for Fay. I also heard mum saying Beauty had wolf teeth.... that just doesn't sound right at all. She's a horse, I don't understand how she got ahold of wolfs teeth? Brave equine she is that's for sure. I wouldn't try to get any teeth from any wolves.

I can't put up a picture of me to show you who is talking here, mum has everything we own in boxes, something fishy is going on.
It makes us all nervous that the new in thing is living life out of boxes, it just feels like they can up and leave at any time now and we would never see them again. We're all on edge and sit at the door alot just so they don't forget us if they take these boxes somewhere.

My Sista Karma got herself into some big trubble with the bad man this morning. He made himself some brekkie and left it on the counter and went to the bathroom to wash his hands and brave big Karma jumped up and took half of the stuff off his plate. She's a tall girl now, she towers over me and weighs a LOT. I don't like wrestling with her much anymore as it is just scary now.
I'm glad she likes us all though, she could easily do some damage to us if she got the idea to.

So the bad man YELLED at Karma over the loss of his brekkie and mum just laughed at him and told him that he shouldn't have just left it there like that. But she got upset with Karma too, not nearly as much as the bad man. She's condemned to staying on the bed now.
Since she doesn't really fit in her crate anymore I took it over, I like that little cave of my own. Karma growls when I go lay in it, but she just doesn't fit at all anymore.

Well, mum is doing things with boxes again so we had better get together and sit at the door to ensure she doesn't leave us here.

Hi everyone

Hi, I my name is apparently Titan.
I am experiencing my first time in a "home" right now, its very odd. There are lots of big dogs here that I felt I had to fight with to prove my point. They didn't accept this well, I made a horrible first impression on my new roomies.
I'm just here for a short while so I can learn some "manners" and "basic obedience" I know nothing and do not understand why I have to go outside to pee. That just makes no sense to me at all.
Today was a hard day at this "house" I was introduced to this strange noise that always was followed by a treat. Then every time I would touch my nose on the ball thing on the end of it, the noise would happen again and another treat would come my way.
This stuff is pretty easy.
When the lady says certain words, I sometimes put my bum down on the floor and hear the noise and get a treat, or I lay down or I touch the ball again. Its pretty fun, it keeps me amused.
Today the really big dog named Kita decided she was no longer mad at me for attacking her and we played like dogs do. It was great.
There is an older hairy boy here who doesn't play with me, he's an old man though so thats alright. I'm just a pup myself. I have been alive for 10 months now and it sure took a long time for me to see that life was indeed good. I would have never thought it was this good before. I mean I always got food and water but not much "affection" I think they call it.
There were lots of other dogs like me where I lived before, some smaller ones with big heads and no snouts, and some taller ones that looked like little Boxers. We didn't have it bad I thought, but now I feel so sad for all my friends who are still at that other home I had. They would love to experience what I am experiencing now.
All I can do is hope that one day they all get out too, like I did for being "too tall"
After coming here, I think those people before were crazy, I'm a short little guy compared to the dogs here. Wonder why she said I was too tall? She's too picky.
This new lady likes me just for me, and doesn't care much about how tall I am.

Well, off to find the green ball that will make the clicky sound for some treats again.
It was nice meeting you all.

Our new home

Well we have gone and done it. She sent us away.
But its just "for now" she said.
We're kind of liking our new place, so much more room to run and we live with 17 other horses now.
Fay found a friend she used to know before her and Venna were purchased, she's thrilled.
They remember each other and spend A LOT of time together. Fays friends name is Dakota, she's for sale again and its really hard for our human to not buy her considering Dakota was the horse that she had decided on before Fay. But lucky for Fay Dakota was already sold by the time she made up her mind. Once she found out that Dakota was gone, she insisted right then and there that she was taking Fay and Venna.
As you can see I am left out of this friendship for now, but Dakota is a nice girl and one day I will be good friends with her too, I know it.

As you can tell here, we spend a good part of our day running away from this young Thoroughbred, he's a punk, just a young gelding ( I think) but he likes to make us run, I have lost a bit of weight in the past couple weeks from being here.

I really don't make friends quite as well as Fay, she's far too easy going, but I still have her.

It took both of us a few days to realize that big round bales of hay were still good to eat. Both me and Fay were scared of them at first and would wait until the other horses would drop some on the ground before eating it. But we're good now, we got over that fear. Things are so different here, but we both like it. Even though I don't have many friends yet, its a great place for a horse to be.
I hear talk of Fay leaving this spring for a couple months, I really hope that I make some friends before she goes. She's going to get trained for riding. I keep telling her its not bad having a good human on your back, but she's nervous about it.

Well, I don't have much else to say, we're both happy and healthy at our new temp home so don't worry about us. We're not on the roads anymore =o)

She's gone

A lady came by the house on Tuesday armed with a horse hauling trailer and mum came home from work early to help and spend some time with Venna.
They loaded up Venna and she hasn't come back yet.
I was really worried, her own mother doesn't seem too concerned ( So I have been kicking her extra lately for that) Venna was my best bud, and just like that she's gone.
Mum keeps saying she is at a better place with other foals and a new owner who is far more knowledgeable to raise foals. I think I better stop biting before I get loaded in one of those trailers again to never return.

Its so weird here with out Venna, Fay just keeps eating like there is nothing wrong, I think maybe she's in denial and thinks Ven will come back, but I know what happens when you get loaded in trailers, you never see your farm again.
I've been loaded twice now in my life and hope it doesn't happen again.
