My boys are home for the summer ❤
Subject: Rotten Georgia Peach “Boomer”
Report: 3rd ride vs. 20th ride
I love my little guy but I am getting to the point where I am concerned. Boomer has gone from not being handled for a year to being hauled from Georgia to Indiana THEN to Illinois and saddle broke in a 9 week span. (He’s almost 4) The progress he has made in that time frame has been mind blowing. I took the extra time to get him saddle broke. I have got him to trust me, which is great because under saddle he is a dream! He is starting to bit up, he takes his leads, steers, stops on a dime, and stands. His only issue is horses coming toward him, he has a mini heart attack then chills out. Now, I left school this weekend and put Boomer in the hands of my friend. I have a feeling he has been giving her hell, which isn’t the first time he has acted this way with an unfamiliar face. He’s been spooky with her and naughty. Which brings me to the conclusion that if Boomer is to ever be sold or even go back to his old owners, they will have to build a DAILY trust with him. Who has time for that? Nobody. Which means I think by summer, I might have me another horse cuz everyone knows I would never get rid of Duke and I am not going to let Boomer live wild or in fear. Thank god I just got a job, because I need to start looking for boarding facilities once school is out. Oh the joys of being a horse lover….
Yeah that’s right bitches, my colt went from being the most ranchest, crazy one in the class to one of the best colts in the class. And people say I don’t know what I am doing! I may not be a top notch trainer, but I have the patience and hard work they do! So excited about how far Boomer has come in nine weeks. He is not the same horse I took off the trailer that’s for sure!
Everybody this is Boomer, a black (brown) and white tobiano Paint. DOB: 4/24/09. Brief overview of this Rotten Georgia Peach: I am using him from my step cousin that lives in Georgia for my colt breaking class. At the age of 3 and a half, this horse had nothing done with him when I first laid hands on him. The first picture is Boomer the day we got him to my school (January 13th). The picture below that was taken today (March 11th). Look and personality wise, this horse has done a 360. Yes, we still have a lot of obstetrical to over come, yes he desperately needs a bath but where we are now compared to where I was with him 9 weeks ago, I feel like I am not even working with the same horse. I am so proud of this little guy. It’s going to be heart breaking to see him go in May…
Hello sexy thang!
Boomer kicking ass and taking names. His third day being under saddle ever! (Ok 3rd ride I should say)
My little guy is coming along. We had a minor set back yesterday resulting in me riding 10+ seconds of a bucking bronco. I finally bailed, falling on my right side and face in the dirt. I regrouped, lounged Boomer for what seemed like eternity and tried again. We ended up having a very successful second ride. The after math of my bronc riding debut resulted in a broken nose, bruised legs and a tweaked shoulder. Welcome to Colt Breaking!
It’s been two years since I got kicked by Cosmo. At a better time I will tell you the whole story but to keep it short, the kick that landed me in ICU and in and out of hospitals for the last 9 weeks of my junior in high schools days, with a grade four liver laceration, damaged bile duct and bruised right lung changed me in ways I could never imagine. I am so blessed for the opportunities that are given to me, my friends, family, support and most importantly Duke, my horse. Without that horse guys, I don’t think I would have had the fight to live. I posted this at 4 p.m. This marks two years to the day my life changed.
