Into the Spotlight… Charger!

If anyone asks, I didn’t have anything else to do that involved pictures that are already uploaded onto this computer.

Charger is a Tennessee Walker stallion and he has a white body with a black mane and tail. Charger has had two foals with our Tennessee Walker mare, Tennessee Rose. Their foals are Lily (one year), and Sparks (9 months).

Charger-Shut Up and Dance with Me

As he is pretty photogenic, it is no surprise that Sugarcoat, stallion-less as she is, seems to be attracted to him. Charger is also a blue ribbon winner. He won first place in Dressage county fun show through states as that is his specialty. Charger also does regular English, but the girls here at Western Star seem to like to use other horses in English pleasure.

Charger-Shut Up and Dance with Me

Because he is admired by so many stallion-less mares, Charger can get a bit full of himself at times, which causes him to be hard to handle.

Sorry this was a little shorter than usual. I really need my mom to upload pictures so that I can make more posts about new models. Bye!

Into the Spotlight… Sam!

So, I finally got around to another Into the Spotlight post! A while ago I promised to do Sam, so here we go!

Sam is one of the special edition Trakehner stallions. He came with the Barrel Racing set from Schleich’s Farm World.

Sam-?

As some of you may know, Sam is named after the horse I ride over the summer at the YMCA camp. Sam has won first place in barrel racing at the fun, district, county, and state shows this past year. He has also competed in Western pleasure (First place at Districts and State, second and third at the rest), pole pending (Second in fun, and county and first in districts and state). He has also competed in team roping along side of Hotspot and Taylor (Jen is his owner).

Sam-?

Sam is also trained to English, as Taylor sometimes uses him for English lessons, but he doesn’t compete in shows for English.

So far, Sam has not sired any foals, although we at Western Star Stables are looking to breed him with Starlight next time Starlight is in heat. Sam lives in the stallions pasture (duh!) were he normally hangs out with Rodeo and Dallas, our other Trakehners. Sam is pretty gentle which makes him great for a lesson horse.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and have a great rest of your week!

Looking Back on 2017 + Goals for 2018

Happy New Year guys! 🎉 I hope you have all had an enjoyable year, and I wish you all the best for the year to come. I would like to start out on a summary of my year.

Fireworks

This year was my second year for riding at the YMCA with Sam.🐴 One of my instructors happened to be a Western trick rider from Australia. She was able to teach me a few tricks that did not involve a special saddle. This year was also my first year to go to over night camp at The Promised Land. Later in the year, I found out that I could do riding lessons for half the price as at the YMCA. I was lucky enough to ride the most wonderful pony in the world, a mixed breed mare named Marshmallow. This was also my fourth year for BB gun club.🔫 It was also my second year for basketball.🏀 In case your interested, we won 2 out of 4 games already.😊 This is also my first year in Student Ministries at my church since I am in 7th grade now.

This year also brought more publicity for Horse Crazy for Girls. With 13 followers (2 of them being e-mail), 3,753 views, 509 visitors, 266 likes, 313 comments, and 89 posts. I have also been viewed in 10 countries. 10 countries! I have also discovered many new blogs this year, and I look forward to discovering more in the new year.

I do have some personal and blog goals for this coming year. I hope to achieve 10 more followers (20 would be great, but I want to stay realistic), and I hope to be able to update with recent pictures more often.

As for personal goals, I have:

Compete in a show. I pretty much have that one lined up.

Out shoot Mr. Pie. He’s one of the kids on my BB team.

Be one of the starting 5 on my basketball team at games.

Have an awesome time at the Winter Retreat.

Read Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.

I hope you all enjoy this post, and have a happy new year! Bye!

Minis and Pets

So a while ago I was asked how I don’t lose my minis underneath of my bead where their pasture is. So I decided to answer that with a post.

IMG_4269

My bed is, oh, about two feet of the ground. which leaves plenty of room for my minis, their barn and the round pen/farm animal pasture.

IMG_4270

Please ignore all of my riders strewn about on the floor.

IMG_4273

Mini pasture. Back: Candy, Pumpkin, Lightning. Front-ish: Meikko, Snowfall (hidden by the fencing), and Fancy.

IMG_4274

Looking into their beautiful homemade barn.

IMG_4277

The back stall is Fancy’s and the front is Lightning’s. The water trough holder was not my idea. You can probably see the tiny halter hooks I made for their halters. All of the adults except Snowfall have one.

IMG_4279

The back stall is Snowfall’s, and the front is Meikko’s. In the back there is a hook I made for the lead ropes to hang on.

IMG_4281

You can see it a little better now. There is another hook. It’s kind of hidden by the pitchfork. It currently holds Lucy’s bridle. The girth of the saddle broke, unfortunately. My sister and I sent a letter to Schleich complaining about it and a halters’ that I got that was fraying at the nose band. However, they haven’t even replied yet. Ugh!

IMG_4283

The round pen/farm animal pasture. Right to left: Buddy (Yeah, there are two Buddys’), Chocolate S’mores, Peanut Butter S’mores, Blackberry, Apricot.

I believe that is it for this post. Have a Happy New Year! Bye!

Merry Christmas

Reading Christmas presents from her parents. Hopefully they will come next year.

IMG_4312

Jingle Bells insisted on dressing up as Santa Claus. She even demanded that Meikko and Snowfall be reindeer. Thankfully they didn’t mind.

IMG_4313Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night! I hope you have a joy filled holiday season and remember that Jesus is the reason for the season! Merry Christmas!

Trot, trot, trot… JUMP! + Updates

So, I finally got pictures uploaded. So you can see how wonderful Marshie is!

IMG_4103

So the Palomino in the left corner is Shilo. And yeah, I can jump now! I can only jump low jumps, but it’s still jumping!

IMG_4104

And yes, I am riding bareback. It’s the best! Love you, Marshmallow!!!

IMG_4105

Please ignore Shilo’s dirty bottom. So quick update. I have had two basketball games so far this season. The first one we won 21-13 and the second one we lost 22-23. I have another one today, and hopefully we’ll crush them. Also, my BB gun club started. Yeah!!! And it’s snowed three times in the past 2 weeks. The first time I wasn’t sure if I was able to make it to my Student Ministries Christmas Party, but I did. One of the  other 2 times, My other Christmas party got canceled because of the terrible roads. But we got some pretty good pictures.

IMG_4284

SNOW! Hey! It even looks like Hotspot got some on her neck!

IMG_4299IMG_4298IMG_4297

My sister took these. They’re pretty good. We also have the Christmas decorations up.

IMG_4119

This I made last year at my church for their Wednesday night program.

IMG_4120

The stocking were hung by the stall doors with care,

It hopes that the white mare soon would be there.

IMG_4313

Hey look! The carrots fit!

IMG_4121

Then we have our beautiful lights.

IMG_4124

Anybody have a theory on why Lucy is laying on the ground?

IMG_4126

Then we have our beautiful lights.The above picture is of the hooks that they hang up with. I swear it took 1/2 an hour to make them all.

We also have our arena lights which I got for my birthday.

IMG_4127

Gracie’s gonna win the Christmas show for jumping!

IMG_4296

Some how Snowflake managed to escape the pasture and get down the mountain (ahem, stairs). Do you like her hat?

Ooh! You guys HAVE to see this!

YAAASSS! It’s back!!!

ALSO. I have picture for Christmas! Yeah!

Okay, I think that is it. One more thing, you should check out Pegasus Expert’s awesome Wild Horse Story.

So, I should see you guys soon. Bye!

Twice In the Same Week-ish!

So, I was scrolling through peoples posts, and… I GOT NOMINATED FOR THIS!!!

Image result for liebster awardLibster Leebster Leibster Liebster award! Yeah! I got nominated for and award!!! And twice! The first time I was nominated by Pegasus expert @ Sunshine Stables Blog, and the second time by Minki @ StableStoreys. Okay, so the rules are:

1. Acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award (Done)

2. Answer the 11 questions that the blogger gives you

3. Give 11 random facts about yourself

4. Nominate 11 blogs

5. Notify those blogs of their nomination

6. Give them 11 questions to answer

Okay, so here are the 11 questions from Pegasus Expert:

Do you actually want to do this?

Yes! I have never been nominated before. This should be fun.

Do you know what this award is?

Sort of. I think I’ll just copy Minki’s link.  www.liebsterawards.com Ah ha! It worked!

Have you been awarded something like this before?

Nope. Never had an award until now.

Do you like horses?

Nah. I LOVE horses!🐎🐴🦄

Do you have pets?

No. But I used to have two fish. Actually I had one and my sister had one. Then mine died and we gave my sister’s to our neighbors who have a fish pond. (Didn’t expect a long explanation, did you? 😊)

Are you sure you want to do this?

YAS!

Are you tired?

Seriously? Not really, but I constantly have purple bags under my eyes. I can never fall asleep at night…

Can you tell that my creativity for questions has run out?

Yeah, kind of.

Are you a horse nerd?

Oh, my word! Do you have to ask?! Yes! Of course I am! I mean, my blog is called Horse Crazy for Girls! Duh!

Do you hate it when someone says ‘white’ not ‘gray’ when talking about a horse?

Um, I don’t really notice. (nervous laugh), but I despise it when people call Palomino blondes. Ugh!

Are you positively sure that this was a mistake because of these questions?

No way!

Okay, so those were Pegasus Experts questions, now for Minki’s.

What inspired you to start your blog?

Um, well, two years ago I needed to make a blog for school, so that’s how, I guess.

If you could meet anyone in the world, who would you choose?

Wow. That’s hard. I don’t really, like, consider people celebrities. I think maybe I would want to see George Strait. If anyone wants to know, he’s, like, THE best country artist out there.

What is one thing you wish you could change about your life?

Nothing, really.

Do you YouTube?

No, but I know someone who does!

What are your dreams for your blog?

Um, 10 subscribers?! Other than that being able to upload picture more often.

Do you have any pets and if so what are they and what are their names?

No. But I used to have two fish. Actually I had one and my sister had one. Then mine died and we gave my sister’s to our neighbors who have a fish pond.  As for names, fishies don’t get names.

Who are some bloggers that you would recommend?

Nichelle @ Desktop Stables, Filliefanatic @ TinyHorseTalk, Minki @ StableStoreys, Pegasus Expert @ Sunshine Stables Blog, and Annalee @ Buttons Book Reviews.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?

Probably Vienna, Austria to see teh Spanish Riding School.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what five things would you want with you?

My Bible, lots of water, a wilderness survival kit, food, and I cell phone/walkie talkie. (Hey! There just might be service!)

What is your biggest fear?

Nothing, really.

On a scale to 0.5 to 10.5 how much do you love blogging?

Definately 10.5. blogging is so much fun!

Okay, 11 random facts…

  1. I ride at two diferent camps with the best two horses in the world. Marshmallow and Sam.
  2. Other than all things equine (this includes mythical horses), my favorite animals are reindeer, deer, and foxes. Not nessicarily in that order

You can fool some of the people, all of the time, and all of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool a horse

As you may have guessed from the title, I have been fooled by something. Thankfully, Starlight and Nickers were kind enough to point it out. It has seemed that I have ten followers. technically speaking, I do. However, this is not 100% so. I have 2 e-mail followers, Ellysia and Chickadee, and 8 actually followers, Filliefanatic, Minki/llamacorn (which do you prefer?), Hold it all!!!! I now officially have 9 actually followers. Two of which have been following for the past week-ish. okay, to continue: # Hannah, Annalee, fabfivemom, Pegasus Expert, (HorseLover4Ever) Elizabeth, calicoplains, and dinosaursdonkeysandms.

So, long story, I was surfing around earlier, remembered that dinosaursdonkeysandms had liked one of my posts a while back. So I went over to her sight, looked around a bit, and then decided to follow. So, I just looked back at my followers to see the order, and what do you know!? She’s following me now!

For calicoplains, she kind of just showed up in the inbox. So I’m following her aswell. So, I still need one more actually follower. Just one more! I’ll try to have a cool picture to celebrate., but yeah. I technically have 11 followers, but I still need one more actually follower for WordPress to recognize the fact that I have ten followers. So go tell everyone you know to get a WordPress account and subscribe!!!

One more thing, I really just like to know how you guys found my lowly blog amist all the other blogs out there. So if you haven’t already told me how, I would really like if you could do that. It’s just fun to hear everyone’s story.
