Sweet Summertime

I would like to thank everyone who has read my blog, even if it was just once. As the semester comes to an end, so will my blog in a formal way. I expect to keep posting, especially about Paisley. Also, I will try to incorporate some other horse related things I learn along the way. I have learned that Journalism is NOT my thing, and that I will be leaving Rowan so I can switch my major back to Animal Science. However, I did learn a lot about writing for my readers and I hope that I did well in that sense.

Some of my better posts include:

Straight from 2011’s Youth World Champ

My Search for the Wild Ponies on Chincoteague Island

Horses & People Working Together at Shadow Equestrian

Map of “Must Know” Equine Locations in South Jersey

and Progress With Paisley

Also, if anyone is interested: this Friday, May 10, the Eastern Pennsylvania Reining Horse Association is having a spring show at the Dream Park. I plan to go as long as I don’t have to work. Reining is amazing, don’t miss out on this opportunity! That’s all for now. Thanks again.

Extreme Mustang Makeover Here I Come!

Great news everybody! I was accepted to be a trainer in this year’s Extreme Mustang Makeover taking place at the Dream Park. I am so excited. My next step is to return the trainer’s acceptance packet and have to search for a sturdy round pen or build one.

I think the days to actually pick up the mustangs are April 5th and 6th, but I’ll keep you posted. Also, I think I read somewhere that everyone gets a gelding (male) mustang to train… but don’t quote me. Okay so I figured it out, every competition has all one gender, meaning some everyone has a gelding (boy) or mare (girl). It just so happens this competition will be mares.

I think the most fun part of this competition will be getting another horse and spending time with it everyday. The hardest part will definitely be all of the patience I’m going to need, not only with the mustang (no name yet). Also, I work and attend school full-time so I’ll have to learn to juggle.

This is where I need your help. I have a lot to do in the next month so hopefully you can help me. Does anyone have any cute names to suggest? Please comment below by clicking on the title of the post. For example, to comment on this post, click “Extreme Mustang Makeover Here I Come!” If I have enough options, I will make a poll at the end for everyone to vote! Did I mention I am super excited?  Thanks everyone.
