Meet my very 1st horse, Lazarus.
I couldn't wait for Santa anymore or ask one more time for a pony for my bday (after age 30 it got embarrassing). I took matters in my own hands and I finally decided to pick a pony that needed a new home. Laz found me as I contemplated with this idea. He was sweet yet very sassy, fresh off the track, Thoroughbred (OTTB).
Join us for our re-training, rehabbing from laminitis and testing all parts of mixed up horsemanship and partnership, and luck...

60 mph GUSTS of wind!

Seems like everyone is getting WINDY days!
Wednesday was so crazy windy that when I pulled up to the barn, I thought "this is stupid, Laz is going to be NUTS"  Well, I opted to take this video to show a few things.
1. Laz was an ANGEL
2.  Do you hear the crazy wind...that does it justice, I felt as if I was going to get blown over
3.  Note to self; don't videotape, lunge a TB, hold a whip and think you can do any of those tasks well
4.  How awesome is my horse for all the training I've done with him stepping on his lead and not freaking out!
5.  Laz was an ANGEL.  I know I already said that but he was!! The wind was tugging fiercely on his lead, thus him thinking I was wanting him to stop.  The poor boy was just trying to hard to listen, I was SO PROUD of him.  We worked for about 35 minutes and then I just looooooved up on him.  He rocks.\
6.  I have to enjoy the fact that though there are days where he acts up and scares me, they are few and far in between.  He is so awesome. 
Enjoy the "what not to do when lunging" video


  1. Glad he was so good - we've had the same wind - I'm glad it's dying down.

  2. Yeah, my friends said it was c-c-c-crazy windy up there in Chi-town, too; what, are you guys trying to steal our hurriane season?!
    Looks like Laz handled it all in stride, though -- awesome!
    And how funny is it that I love hearing your Midwestern accent? Lol. It makes me feel like I'm back home in Cheecaaaaaago.

  3. Laz is the man! This wind is horrid...not as bad as yours, but still bad. Pie and Sovey have been good for me, thankfully.

  4. OMG Wednesday was the worst...crazy winds! Good for you for actually working in it. I did no such thing:) I huddled in the barn with my warm pony and hunkered down for a couple hours:)

    He's a very good boy for not freaking when he steps on his lead! Miles is getting a bit better, but if the pressure doesn't give to him right away he becomes silly, sigh.

  5. Those winds were crazy we had them too.

  6. Yikes that is some crazy wind! Wow! I would have stayed hidden indoors lol.
