I am going to try out the Ace on Peanut today. He had his hooves trimmed today. Afterwards we put him in a stall and Peanut was rearing and acting all bad. So, now he is tied in the barn with his saddle on. I am going to work him a bit, then he is getting tied back up. For the rest of the week I am going to keep him in a separate pasture behind my house. I think he is getting too used to being around the other horses. I was also told today that Ace will only work for a few hours, and these rodeos last all day long. So, I hope that Peanut can calm down after getting to the rodeo and he won't need the Ace. I have my fingers crossed. I don't like drugging horses, especially when my kids are the ones riding them, it makes me nervous. I just need Peanut to behave how I know he can. Which is good. But lately he has been a little stinker. More wet saddle pads I guess. So, the plan this week. Separate Peanut from the herd, feed less grain and more hay, try out the Ace to see what it does to him. And ride Peanut every day this week. The Rodeo is at noon on Saturday so we will have plenty of time to show up and warm up and calm down. This might have been the reason for him going to the sale barn. But I know there is a good horse under all those nerves. Even if I have to haul him places twice a week, I will, anything to get him to calm down. I do have him on probiotics, for ulcers. So, I hope all this works out and Peanut can relax.

Twilight Fan and Plan for Peanut
This is kind of a late post, but I forgot to post about it. I am not sure if any of you have read the Twilight Series of books. I read them and I really liked them. I saw the movie, which I thought was a bit off, but the books are really good. I am excited to see the second movie. They got a new director and it's supposed to be better. But anyway. There are a lot of people out there who are really obsessed with the Twilight movie. And my niece is one of them. She is 12 and she loves Edward. So, for Christmas I made her a picture of her and Edward. First I took the original poster of Edward and Bella.And then I added my niece's face to it. My niece was so excited. I gave it to her in a frame. My sister said she screamed when she opened hit. I was excited to give it to her. But that is some old news. Now onto some new news.
