Birthday Today...





Well....today was my Birthday, in case you didn't see it on other blogs(Thanks you, everyone who did Birthday posts for me! That was very nice of you. ;-)) and I got some great gifts. First off, from my parents I got money towards a saddle I want. I would love to have a Wintec 500 English saddle with CAIR air panels and the adjustable gullet system in size 16.5 medium tree(I just thought I'd say all the facts about it). You can see a picture and learn more about it here, if you care....probably don't, but whatever. :-P

My cousin, Anika, also got me a very pretty stable blanket for showing...I mentioned it once through comments, but I'm planning on showing Miss Daisy-Mae next summer at our county fair, and maybe the state fair, plus other shows from a saddle club near us, in Western Pleasure, maybe English Pleasure, and Barrel Racing...that's all I'm planning on so far...maybe a halter class....but anyway, I can use this blanket on Daisy after I've given her a bath-it's light, so it's not hot, but it will keep her clean for showing in case she rolls or gets dusty.

I'm going to show Daisy in barrel racing, like I said, and I'm REALLY excited. I've only shown a miniature pony before and I loved it, but I'm not very knowledgeable about showing in Western pleasure or English pleasure...or barrel racing. I'll learn, though. Daisy did it with her old owner and was apparently really good at it, so I'm excited to see how it goes. When I ride her I can already see the potential...Man, I'm so excited. :)

The last picture is of a sign Anika made for my Birthday. I have one that says Miss Daisy and one that says Daisy...the Daisy one hangs in my locker at school, and the Miss Daisy(as you can see) is hanging above Daisy's stall door now. I really like it because the whole time I've wanted a sign for her, but I thought it'd be silly to get one because there's really no ideal place to hang it, and she's the only horse...but this one is perfect. I love it...anyway, I had a good Birthday....

Have a good rest of the week! It could be awhile until I'm posting...Maybe Thursday, or Friday.....or Saturday.....oh, whatever, bye!
:-)

Oh, btw, I just put that picture of Genevieve in because I thought it looked cute...cozy....

You can buy the Wintec 500 saddle cheaper here:

And here's another saddle that's the same quality as Wintec, but cheaper. It also has changeable gullets:

Good Luck! Also chicksaddlery.com has inexpensive horse supplies and tack.

Also, (sorry I'm leaving a lot of comments) if you go to horsetackreview.com you can read reviews on all kinds of horsey stuff that people have and reviewed.

Happy Birthday!!! I love the way that sheet matches Daisy's halter. You could probably use the sheet as a cooler, too for when she's hot.

Melimaus said...

Holy cow, Michaela...wow, a lot of comments...I will definatly check out those sites-the cheaper the better...Thanks for the Bday wishes, everyone! :)

Thanks for the comment on the Rom-12-2 blog! Feel free to check out my blog. Your blog is cool! I don't have a horse, but I have always wanted one, although I gave it up a while back because I am saving up for a car! lol!

Happy Birthday!!! I like Daisy's blanket! It sounds like alot of fun to compete! I'd like to be able to someday!

I started reading the Saddle Series, I like it! OH, also, on my blog, I fixed the last post so that the font size at the bottom is read-able! Actually, my dad did it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

Anika said...

Hey! I'm super happy you like the sign and blanket. :) Happy Birthday again, although its the next day. You're 13 now!! It took me a while to remember how old I was when people asked. 12, no 13...idk! lol.

I'm so glad you had such a special birthday, Mell.
Daisy looks smashing in her new coat, too. Wow!
I hope you can get that saddle of your dreams soon, too.

You are truly blessed.

Showing ish fun, and great practice! Carlo and I go to a show at least once a month.

Mellimaus said...

WOW, do you show in the winter, too? I've never shown before, like I said, but we hope to show in a few shows in July and August and I'm really excited.

Gudl said...

Hey, Meliss', I gave you an award for excellence! Have a look on my blog.
I Love you. Mom.

Happy Birthday...hope you get your saddle. I have the Wintec Pro with Cair---it is awesome. Everyone who has ridden in it to try it, went out and bought one.
