I'm my picture, I'm on my aunt's horse. His name is Little Lion Man (I love Mumford & Sons).
I trained him. He's now four, and jumping a meter forty.

    mumbled "7 Months Later"


    7 Months ago, I got one of the sweetest horses ever. The Scriptwriter was badly mistreated when he was rescued. He's grown up so much and put on loads of condition. I'm just so proud of my sweet boy.
    The picture: I finally let him out earlier. He was in his box for a few months due to the bad weather. I could only bring him out by hand or lunging. But he can't be lunged for too long because he's only been sound for a few weeks. I couldn't find my brown boots for him, so I had to use my good white ones. They're destroyed in mud now, but it's better than risking an injury. He was delighted to be out and was leaping about the place for ages before settling down and grazing. I took his rug off so he wouldn't tear it.
    About him again: He's not very trusting at all. I'm the only person he'll let touch his legs. We have to sedate him for the farrier because he gets so freaked out. He's around eighteen months now. He still looks like a proper baby, though. I slept in the same stall as him a few times, though. He likes to protect me. I absolutely love my boy to bits. <3 :* xxxxxx

    Thanks, he does, doesn't he. I was absolutely delighted when he started to put on condition and gain weight. <3 He is very cheeky once he trusts you. I can't wait to start riding him next summer. I can't imagine how many times i'm going to fall. :D

    Haha bless him, sounds a bit like a pony i know! A very sweet little pony called Beanie who is very gentle to nervous people but when you get to know him he is really cheeky! He tried nibbling my elbow the other day just because i was talking to my friend! Although he can't be ridden, i think if i rode him i would be straight off as soon as he sees any food! I am the only person he lets hug him too, and he falls asleep when i am rubbing his back :) Bless them both :)

    mumbled "So Sorry.. :("

    Hey guys, sorry that it's taking me so long to update; I got a concussion and can't remember what I was going to write, haha. So sorry, it'll be up it a few days. :) xx

    oh dear :( hope you feel better now :) How is that horse you rescued doing?? xx

    We only got him four months ago, I think, but he's doing really well. He let me put a bridle on him. I was so happy. He trusts me so much. I suppose it's because we were both broken when we were brought together. :) xx

    mumbled "It's Time To Accept..."

    Every day, I stare in the mirror, picking faults in myself. I don't need other people's criticism, but I get it every day. I know I can't write. I know I can't ride. I know I can't sing. I know I can't make anybody feel good about themselves. I know I can't do anything but bad.
    It hurts enough without other people telling me. I look in the mirror and see myself as fat and ugly. Mirrors show the truth.
    I'm not doing this for attention, or compliments, I'm doing this to tell people I know, I don't need them to tell me.
    I've been told to kill myself quite a few time this week, and I'm considering it. You might get your wish sooner than you expect..
    ♥ Irish And Proud ♥
    Okay. I've decided to try until Christmas, at least. Thanks guys, your support means so much. :') Even if my mare would want me to live now, she's gone, and never coming back. Her life is over...
    If I go, there's nobody to take care of the stallion.. Thanks for making me realise that. I literally owe you guys my life.. <3

    mumbled "♥ New Horse ♥"


    No, I didn't buy a new horse. This stallion was rescued two days ago. they don't have he time, or space for him, so they asked me if I would take care of him. We bought him for one hundred. They didn't want the money, but we had to give them something. They need all the money they can get. I have no idea what to call him, though.
    He was found like Andrea found Spark in Love Like This. It was almost exactly the same. Except, they didn't pay, they just took him. He's so skinny and battered. It's horrible. He has no energy left now.
    I have to slowly build up his feed. He might die, but I just have to hope for the best.
    Saving a horse will not change the world... But it will change the world for that one horse...

    He's gained a bit of weight, and he's responding to things. The poor boy won't let anyone touch me. I'm the exception. He's so mistreated... :'(
    He freaks at the camera, though. I tried to take a picture where he couldn't see, too, but he went mad at the sound...

    He's about eight months, which means his birthday is around the same time as mine. :) Thanks very much. :) He lets me touch his legs now. He has cuts and sores on them, so we think he was hobbled... :(
    But, he's recovering really fast. I can walk him in hand. He'll let me, which is amazing. :)

    you should make his birthday on the same day as yours, just for the fun of it :)

    mumbled "♥ I'll Never forget you, Black Rose ♥"


    Whoever said a dog is man's best friend obviously never owned a horse...
    My twenty seven year old mare, Black Rose, passed away last night. We got her when she was 13. She had been badly abused and the scars never faded. We've had her for fourteen amazing years.
    The picture is of her three months ago, before she fell ill. It hurts so much to think I'll never see her again. She was so sweet. My beautiful girl. She was so trusting despite her past.
    I never rode her with a saddle, only bareback. She never threw me, but wouldn't let anybody else ride her.
    I'll never forget my best friend who was always there for me, no matter what. Now, when I need you most, you're gone. ♥
