The Internet is back, and a new house!

Hey human beings and people of a different life form! :) Well the internet is back! *Nerdy fist pump to the air*

So I can actually publish comments and posts at a normal time! :) Well over the weeks my parents have decided to sell the house! I’m really happy with the house we’re leasing. My parents are going to lease it for about two years, while we buy our own land and build our own house. We’re moving in on Wednesday (12th of march.)

 The house we’ll be living in is actually made out of hay and clay! But it looks like a normal farm-y house, there are bales of straw inside the walls. The straw makes it like a natural air conditioner. When it’s freezing outside, it makes the house feel warm, and when it’s hot outside, it makes it feel cool. I’ll have to share a room with my sister *mourning by myself thinking of the dread of having to share a room* also.

We have cattle at the house, and room for two horses! So I’ll definitely be bringing Surey (my horse) down and keeping her there for a while! :)

We get to grow our own food on the farm-y land too! It has grapes, strawberries, corn, pears, garlic, onions, cucumber, apples, and lots more!

 

The only downsides are that:

 

  1. I’m REALLY going to miss my old house
  2. With the cattle, we have to sell them to the market
  3. I have to share a room with my little sister
  4. We’re on rainwater, which means no more long showers! No! :)

 

The upsides are:

  1. We’ll have fresh food
  2. We have cows to look after
  3. The house is pretty big
  4. I can have Surey at home! :lol: :mrgreen:

 

Well that’s all I’ve really got to say!

Have you ever moved houses before?

Do you like you house?

What’s you dream house?

The internet is down.

So hi! I haven’t been on lots and LOTS, but I’m determined to keep going! :) The internet isn’t working in my house and we’re getting it back soon (well, like, a month.)

I’m writing this from school, so I’ll get what I have to say out! :)

Well happy new year! I’m so happy this year because I’ve got my own horse, it’s my last year of primary school! (Goodbye primary school! :) ) and most of all…..

It’s the year of the horse!

I’m really enjoying grade 6 so far! The things that I’m looking forward to in school are:

Going to Canberra

Interschool sport

More homework than last year! (Not)

 

Well I have to go now, I’ll go on my blog as much as I can from now on! :)

P.S If you leave a comment, it may not be approved for a while.

P.P.S Juddy was here. :mrgreen:

Catch up with me! And RIP Aadessa!!!

Well I’m incredibly sorry I haven’t had a new post in like, three months, but I’m back! With good news and bad news. I’m going to save the bad news for last, so good news, and just catching up first! :)

Well it’s my last week of school! So next year will be my last year of Primary School! :( My teacher next year is called Mr Mac, and I’m not so scared of him so far……

 

My pony Nim has been up for sale, and been sold to my Equestrian Centre (Wallington Park) and is working his way up the pecking order! :)

My friend got a new chestnut horse, Zepelan, and they’re very happy together.

My other pony, Merry-Legs, has been up for sale, and sold to a lovely lady called Sandra and her husband Ernie. She’s very, very happy, and just loves it at there place!

Things have been great with Brandy. I’ve brought him in from the paddock a couple times and he’s improving really well! :)

Next year I’ll be taking care of a chestnut horse called Surey! :) She’s 15.1hh and her breed is Thoroughbred/Paint/Appaloosa/Quarter -Horse, although she doesn’t have spots, or white blotches anymore. When you ride her, she keeps her head down really low, so her head is about 20cm from touching the arena ground, it’s not naughty, she was trained like that, some Quarter horses are trained like that when they’re ridden. She’s not a horse that likes to do much, she’s not a big fan of jumping at all, but that doesn’t matter to me :) I think I need to work on my position too, I could do with a fair bit of dressage. She’s just a really good pleasure horse too! I’m not into competitive riding so it’s good. I won’t be actually buying her, I’ll just be taking care of her for a full year. Her real owner is going year 12 and won’t be able to take care her every day as studying will be taking her life away for the next year!:)

 

Then her comes the sad news :( My biggest horse, Aadessa has to be put down! :cry: She has a disease called Laminitis. It’s gotten really bad and now her pedal bone (the bone closest to the hoof) is starting to move forward. So if she was trotting in a paddock, it could slip and go through her leg! :cry: We’re putting her down before the worst takes over and puts her in more pain than what she really is in.

There’s  no other horse like her, and I’m not saying that just for the sake of it. She was mistreated badly in her past, and now is VERY sensitive. So if she tries to be naughty (which is VERY rare) and you give her a tap on the nose for doing it, she acts like you’ve given her the whipping of a lifetime! :)All she really wanted was to be ridden, she wasn’t just like ‘yay another ride…..,’ it was like ’YYYEEESSS!!!! DAD IS RIDING ME!!!!!!!!!’ And she’d go out of our way to please us. :)

 

So that’s all I’ve got to say!

I don’t really think that questions are necessary for this post, so bye! :mrgreen: :) :lol:

Forever in my Heart, Brandy.

So, I just wanted to talk about Brandy, the horse that I learnt to ride on, it’s about time I did a dedication post for him. Just one thing before I really start the post:

Thanks for letting me do a post like your’s about the same horse, Paris!

Well, I love this horse more than my own. If I had a choice to give up riding for his life, I would. No thinking about it, I love this horse more than anything.

In 2012, he got colic. Colic is like a stomach ache that some horses get, but this type of ‘stomach ache’ kills horses. A horse would be VERY lucky to fully recover from it. And this amazing horse did, because he’s strong, in and out.

When I found out, I was down at the stables, grooming my own (well, family) horse. As soon as I was told, I went out to his paddock, cut through the fence and stayed with him. My other friends, and people that love him came out too, but I stayed out there for about 1-2-3 hours. We all knew he was going to die, he only kept getting worse. We tried to get him up, because he was on the ground for too long, but all he did was run back, then fall back, he didn’t have enough strength to hold himself up.

We couldn’t put him through this pain any longer, the owner of the stable called the vet, and asked to put him down. We were all devastated. But then the vet couldn’t come, because she was held up with another horse.

We gave him the night, and a miracle happened. He stood up! That ment he getting more strength! Later in the day, he could take a couple steps! Talk about miracles! Clare (the owner) called off the vet, and he kept improving!

Now he is kept in the paddock, wondering around. He can’t be ridden anymore, but who cares, he survived!

I made a photopeach about him, but I couldn’t download it to my blog, so watch it….

                                            Here!

Please leave a comment if know/love my Brandy-Boo, Brandy-Bum, Brandy-Boy!

Have you ever lost something this special?

What’s the saddest/most tragic thing that has ever happened to you?

Did you like my photopeach? (If it worked on the link?)

Big Jump = Broken Arm. I’m So Enthusiastic Right Now! Not.

So, I had a little accident, not pee your pants or anything, just a really bad horse riding fall!

So, my most recent fail is a broken arm. I had a little accident when jumping my horse.  It was three days ago. I was riding at my friends place, and I decided to go over a jump on Nim, thinking it was safe, I approached it. Next thing I’m air-born sliding off the saddle, landing on my shoulder. I was on the ground with my friend’s mum unable to get up for three hours while waiting for the ambulance! :( 

 It turned out that the top of my humorous bone had snapped! I JUST slipped out of having to get surgery.

 After we got home from the hospital, it took me five mins to get out of the car it hurt so much! But the best thing’s that I was on the radio! They were talking about how long it takes the ambulance to arrive to some patients and then they started talking about this girl who fell off her horse in a paddock at Swan Bay road behind a café, that’s where I fell off! My friend’s mum owns a café that’s at the front of their house, and it’s on Swan Bay road!

Well, the horses can’t feed themselves!

Have you ever been badly injured before?

Can You Finish the Ending?

Halo,  apa kabar? (that means hello, how are you?)

So, in class we were reading a picture story book called “Woolves in the Sitee.” It was a good book to infer with. I found it very dark and mysterious. What I thought that would be a good idea was to use the same theme as the book, but turn it into something with horses. Sorry if you guys are getting tired of the horses, horses. horses, but I can’t help it!

So I’m going to write about a paragraph or two, then in a comment, you can finish it off if you want. Just to warn you, there might be a lot of inferencing in the text. Inferencing means know something when it doesn’t exactly say it.  e.g Sarah put on her boots and coat. You can infer that it is wet or raining.

I had to get away. I was pushed too far in this lesson, and in my life, I wanted to keep Stormy, my beautiful black horse. I galloped towards the forest, tears streaming down my face; I had to get away from this terrible place. As I entered the forest, I waited to hear hoofbeats behind me, just in case my friends chased after me. Nothing. Whew! Slowly, I pulled Stormy up. I’m never going to leave you, and I hope you’re never going to leave me. I whispered to my dark gelding

Soundlessly, I walked through the dark forest. I hadn’t noticed before that there were shadows. Shadows covered the winding path, they creeped up the silent trees, and through the river. They won’t leave me alone, they’re everywhere. What have I done? Galloped through the deep dark forest, or ruined my life forever? Getting away was all I could think of right now, away from evil, closer to good. No way could I go back, Stormy would get sold in a flash, I couldn’t go back. Even if I wanted to, these shadows stopped me, they crowded me, and blocked my way, yet they were not solid, they would not move….

Can you finish it off? If I get multiple people to finish it off, I will post my favourite, but I know whatever you write it will be good. :)

What Language  is “Halo, apa kabar” in?

What can you infer from my text/story?

Can you  Finish off my Story?

Was my story dark?

So we all know what a race horse is… right?  Well my favourite race horse is Black Caviar. She’s an amazing horse, she’s never actually ever lost a race before.. WOW! You’ve got to at least be a little interested by that now.

So here are some facts about Black Cavier  ”The horse that never lost a race, and is faster than light…”

Word Challenge

Hi guys! Well this isn’t an actual post, just a notification.

Well, with each post I do, I’m going to say hello, but in a different language. So for example, I might say something like: “Bonjour, my little bloggers.” Then you have to say the language that I typed it in. First I will go easy, then I’ll get a little harder, and probably end up doing it in Hungarian. :)

No need for comments really, for this isn’t really a post.

 

                                                                                                  Bye!
