2006-12-31 [Hedda]: Nice photos. More!!!
Too bad some of the horses are somewhat outside of the photo.
2006-12-31 [Atayemi]: Yeah, sorry about that. xD
I'll get some more as soon as possible! ;)
2007-01-01 [Atayemi]: More added. Sorry about the blur on some of the new ones, I had to use my old camera. >_>
2007-01-01 [moira hawthorne]: Jimmy peeping around to look at me. ... that one is so nice!
2007-01-01 [Atayemi]: Hehe, it came out better than I expected. *^__^*
2007-01-01 [moira hawthorne]: Ive always loved that pose... I drew it for my fav riding instructure as his going away card... when he got his own barn and home and moved.... I was 10 yrs old I think...
2007-01-01 [Atayemi]: Awww bless. :3
2007-01-03 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: nice pics Atay!! I want to enter this competition i might take my camera up to the farm and take some pictures! Then you can see my darling Finn putting his foot in this food bucket because he's Irish >.< (well thats what i think anyways!) and all the naughty ponies!! *nods*
2007-01-04 [Hedda]: Good, we need much much more horse photos
2007-01-04 [Atayemi]: O.o Okays, fair enough. XD
2007-01-05 [Atayemi]: Some more pictures, I was focusing more on the horses' parts. I had to use my old camera. ;-;
2007-01-07 [Zab]: I took a funny pic of Starlight doing..err...d
Nice pic Atay!^^
2007-01-07 [Atayemi]: xD Awww cute! Thanks. ^___^
2007-01-08 [Zab]: ^^ Isn't it annoying wiyth all the rain that makes the pastures all muddy at this time of year? >< (tho normally it would be frozen mud here..)
2007-01-08 [Atayemi]: Ohh yes, it is. It makes the horses feel down too so they don't do anything..;-;
2007-01-09 [Zab]: Sorry, internet cut before I could answer..x)
But all the horses I know likes the rain..XD They won't run in the mud since it's slipery, but they are very happy all places without mud (and sometimes in it..x)
2007-01-10 [Atayemi]: It's okay. :P
2007-01-10 [Zab]: Yeah..it's sooo cute when you can't see which horse is which because the mud gives them the same color..XD
2007-01-10 [Zab]: BTW; Here is a picture of Starlight; the horse I'm supposed to train..XD She's never had a rider, and are barely used to a halter..hehe..
2007-01-10 [Atayemi]: Haha yes. :P // Awww isn't she gorgeous? Haha, big bum! :D It's a great reference! Because she's moving. And she's sweet. :P
2007-01-10 [Zab]: more accurate picture..x) She needs muscles..Oo
XD no... it's not a good referense since the camera makes her bum too big and her head too small:P If you use it when you draw it will look odd..XD but thanks for the compliment;) And she is sweet:P
2007-01-10 [Atayemi]: Aww..yes I suppose so. :P Your welcome! She has a beautiful face, all grey! :3 How old is she?
2007-01-10 [Zab]: ^__^ I think she's 3-4 years,..not sure..XD And her face is pretty:P
2007-01-10 [Atayemi]: Woww, she looks older to me. xD Yeah, it is! :D
2007-01-10 [Zab]: XD yep:P I think she was badly treaten as a foal too:P
2007-01-10 [Atayemi]: Aww..really?
2007-01-10 [Zab]: yeah..O_o dunno much tho
2007-01-10 [moira hawthorne]: the kickin photo is awesome!
2007-01-10 [Zab]: Mine? Thanks..XD
2007-01-10 [moira hawthorne]: yes.... I wish i had a little mare to train... but id have to get off ET to do it...
2007-01-10 [Zab]: *grins* Well..I wish I had time to actually train her..
2007-01-11 [Mental Terrorist]: WOW! Dale is BEAUTIFUL! i love paints! and he looks good in it!
2007-01-11 [Atayemi]: Awww thanks. :P He is lovely. I'll never see him again in the flesh though. :(
2007-01-13 [Mental Terrorist]: oh, why??
2007-01-13 [Atayemi]: I have given up riding at the stables where he is. =/ Mainly because the price of lessons is far too expensive now, and it will keep increasing.
2007-01-13 [Zab]: *brings you here* >< Are you sure there are no private stables where you could ride in exchange for working a bi? 8I know I've said it before.. I just think it's bad you can't ride if you want, I think you're one of the good people that care more about the horse than to look good as fast as possible..>_>)
2007-01-13 [Atayemi]: I remember you asking me yes..but there isn't no. They're all really snobby and stuck up people. Plus I would have to be sixteen to work too. I've only got two months left anyways. :D I suppose I'll just have to wait..I really want to ride again. I've just got no where to go. ;-;
2007-01-13 [Zab]: 16 to work? O_o That's just if you get paid, isn't it? At least here I know that stables are filled with 9-11 years old girls.. slaving to get a lesson once inb a whilre..XD (not so many in private stables, but still often one or two...) Well.. I hope you stumble over a horse who's owner are a bit tired of and lets you ''own'' it some days a week:P It'øs more common than you think:P
Why not put a note up in some horse fgorum on the internert? like www.hastnet.se
if it had been around here..><
2007-01-13 [Atayemi]: Yeah..it's stupid. There aren't any stables around here that do that, though. ;-; You either have to pay for lessons, help about a bit and don't get lessons. Me too, hopefully. My uncle owns two shetlands, but they're too old and way too small to be ridden. He has a donkey, but I won't be able to ride that. XD!
O.o Forum? Uhm..I doubt that'll work. :P
2007-01-13 [Zab]: XD Why not the donkey! Train it! :P *also wish I could let you try academic riding* That piaff yesterday..*dr
Isn't ity worth a try? Don't you have any wales-ish forumj for horsepeople? It might be you have to travel a bit, by bus or something, but there must be one place nnot too far away with horses... I've seen quite a lot ads on hæstnet both for people who wants horses and those who want help with horses..
I think you should try, worst thing that can happen is that you don't find anyone, right? ;)
2007-01-13 [Atayemi]: Nuu! It'll kick me or something! xD And I've seen people ride donkeys..they'
Maybe..I could look into it. :P
Hehe yes. :D
2007-01-13 [Zab]: XD I really want tioi try riding a donlkey..XD tried elephant, camel, horse, cow..only need a donkey..XD (think I rode on the bacxk of a dog when I was really small too..Oo)
Yeah, try it. :) I hope you find something:P
Whee! XD Look for horsejobs in sweden! uh..you won't find any..O__o I had to gwet to denmark to find one...XD
2007-01-13 [Atayemi]: *is on floor laughing* A dog?! Me too! My God..XD!
Haha, I've ridden a horse, camel, donkey(only walking on a beach..), and an elephant. :P
Me too. :D
Haha I will! I might do! You never know. xD
I wouldn't come over until I'm 18/19 anyways. :P
2007-01-13 [Zab]: XD yah..
Or buy a horse...>_> XD
2007-01-13 [Atayemi]: XD My parents won't let me..I asked them about it a while back, but it's the money. :(
2007-01-13 [Zab]: It always is..><
I'm still thinking you should be able to be a ''medryttare'' (''with-rider'' = you borrow the horse against that you do all the caretaking of it a few days a week..) there's no horse dealer or breeding place or so?
2007-01-13 [Atayemi]: Yeps..
I don't know of any, no. :(
2007-01-13 [Zab]: I'm looking for a horse now..>_> I'll buy one when I'm sure I'll keep this job (I can have it here) and when everything's done at home so that I can bring it home if I must..x) I'm looking for a small horse, 3-4 years old to train myself, they are often cheaper. And I can keep it almost for free, that's great:) But I hope you can find a horse to ride too..>< Even tho here are 8 horses I can't ride any of them! gerrr!
That's a pity! >< Looked for any? I mean..it might not be fun to work for a horse dealer, but they usually want people to ride their horses to keep them in shape..(tho, the ones I've met doesn't really care how you ride.. or if the jhorse vbarely can carry you..><z)
And there are even more work and less riding in a breedinfg place..(word?)
2007-01-13 [Atayemi]: Awwww. :P Good luck to you!
No..I don't really want to look for any around here because they are all expensive and stuck up like I said earlier. >__>
Livery? Not too sure, I think that's the word. :P
2007-01-13 [Zab]: Yeah.^^ Now..if onlyt my driverslicense didn't cost so much..><
You sound so prejudiced..XD How can you know they're snuck up if you don't even know if they're there? XD Well, it's up to you:P And most hoprsepeople seem snuck up in the start, and many are, but there are also those who are quite nice when you get to know them..XD
Livery? Where they breed horses?
2007-01-13 [Atayemi]: Aww. :(
Because my mum has met them..>__> She works in a petrol station and they all come in with the trailers and stuff. She's spoken to them and they all seem like they love themselves too much.
2007-01-13 [Zab]: :(
Maybe they have another attitude if you come and want to work a bit dfor them? Anyway, it's up to you, I've never met the people, ythat's for sure..XD
I think I have to go soon..
2007-01-13 [Atayemi]: I'm not sure..but I don't really want to work for people who seem nasty at first meeting. =/
2007-01-13 [Zab]: Hm..if they're nice when you work for them... why not? x) But I see why it's not a first choice...
2007-01-13 [Atayemi]: They might not be nice. *shrugs*
2007-01-13 [Zab]: XD Of course that's a chance/risk..X
2007-01-14 [Atayemi]: Thanks. :D
It's not that I'm nervous, I just hate to see other horses owned by people who only use them for show or what have you. It's awful, really. :(
2007-01-14 [Zab]: What do you mwean ''only use thwem for show''?
2007-01-14 [Atayemi]: You know, they just keep them in fields, and don't ride them at all. >___>
2007-01-14 [Zab]: *lmao* Why do you hate tyhat?
I mean..horses don't like to be ridden. They like to get outside the field or stall and move, but the rider is really just some necessary evil:P Not that we shouldn't ride them, bnecause if we stopped, they'd soon be gone, but horses rather not have humans on their back:P
Besides; that's where you come into the picture. If the hoerses just go in the fields, there is a big chance trheir owners would be haåppy if someone, you, rode them:P
2007-01-14 [Atayemi]: Perhaps..I'll just wait until my exams are over, then I'll consider getting a job with horses. I might move to Scotland, or somewhere else. :)
2007-01-14 [Zab]: good luck :D
2007-01-14 [moira hawthorne]: Ive known horses that love to be riden.. that love to jump... that sulk and are bored and even develope bad babits if they are not challenged... the horses that are riden in compition sports, are horses that love to perform and be challenged as much as their riders do...
2007-01-15 [Zab]: Horses like to get out and see stuff? Yers. They like to hvbe a controlefreak on their back? No.
