Hi everyone! I read in a book how to train your mini to jump. I followed the instructions, and my mini seemed to catch on fast. I introduced Geegee (my mini) to a real jump, about a foot off the ground. She didn't know what it was, and looked at me like "What in the world is this?????" I went over it, and then she went over it too. I showed my grandma, and Geegee jumped like she had been doing that for her whole life! Of course, we were facing the gate, so she RAN!! (The book was The Book of Miniature Horses I think.)

Hello! I just got back from a camping trip in Highland Forest with HLACNY (Home Learner's Association of New York State). It was real fun. We all went on hikes, and looked for letterboxes. There was one thing I didn't like, though. The bathrooms were down a hill, and a short walk. It doesn't sound like much, but when you did that about three times a day, it was very tiring. Add in the walk up the hill, and that is VERY tiring. Well, there was an out house, but it was disgusting and stinky. (I'm sure some of you can agree.) There was a meteor shower while we were there, and I saw 5 meteors (just barely the 5th one). To get there, we had to ride in the back of someone's car, and we were SQUISHED!!!!!! (It was worth it, though). On the first night, there was a thunderstorm, and I can't sleep during t-storms, so some of us got up and played Apples to Apples, and then by 12:00 we were all in bed.  The second day, me and a few of my friends ( Dan, Sean, and Michael) played Cat-opoly. Next camping trip, I'm bringing Horse-opoly. Anyway, we played that for a while, from 7:50AM until 10:00 AM, then we all wanted to go outside. It was chilly, but there was a fire (in a fire pit). That night, our friend Miss Gabby taught me and my friends Eve and Emily how to play Mahjong ( I don't know if I even spelled that right).  By the way, my legs hurt from all that hiking and bathroom trips. We had campfire cones for dessert on Saturday night (only me, my mom, Miss Gabby, Macy, and Mandy). They are simply ice cream cones with chocolate chips, marshmallows, and other toppings, wrapped in tin foil, and roasted by the fire. For more info on HLACNY,  visit their website- . They have a lot of cool field trips!

Hi again! I just wanted to know what everyone's favorite hobbies are.  I like to draw, design pretend houses, bake (a lot (:  !), write, be active, train my mini, ride my horse, and cook in the crockpot.

Football Players (favorites)

I just wanted to know who is everyone's favorite football player and why?

Mine is Tim Tebow, because he is a strong Christian man, and plays really well, which is great.

P.S.   Have you read his book? It's really good.

Here is another Greek Myth in my own words.
Hmmm...I wonder if you've heard it before.

Pygmalion and His Wife
     Pygmalion was sad as he chipped away at the cold marble in front of him. He was a clever sculptor, but he couldn't find a wife.
     One day, a friend was watching him work on the statue. "Why are you so sad? There are plenty of girls to marry!"
      "Yes, but I don't like any of them. Some of them are pretty, but cold hearted. I don't want a bad marriage.
     He kept on working, and finally, after weeks of hard work, he was finished. Pygmalion had sculpted a statue of a very beautiful girl. Every day, he fell in love even more with the stone creation. He hung a garland of flowers around her neck.
     A special festival for Aphrodite, the goddess of love, was later that week. Pygmalion asked her if she could make the statue in his workshop come alive. He trudged home, sad and discouraged. Aphrodite heard him, and decided to help him.
     The next morning, Pygmalion walked into his shop, and he noticed that his statue was different. He touched the statue's cheek, but instead of being cold marble, it was human flesh. The stiff body moved, and Pygmalion fell on his knees and thanked Aphrodite for listening to him. Pygmalion called the girl Galatea, and married her. They both lived a happy life together. Finally, Pygmalion was happy.

Again, I appreciate your comments!

This picture is of a mini miniature horse named Einstein. He is so cute!

The Trojan Horse

This is a story of the Trojan Horse in my own words.

     "Hurry!", whispered Odeysseus, "Get in the horse! They will come for it soon!"
Odeysseus and nine other soldiers climbed into the horse, shut the trapdoor, and waited.
    Everyone in Troy was rejoicing that the Greeks had left after a long and terrible war. A young boy had soon spotted the horse and was yelling, "Everyone, look! Look! A war gift from the Greeks!"
    "Let's bring it into the city!" A Trojan yelled.
     Barely heard abve the racket, a soldier yelled, "Open the gates!"
The great oaken gates swung open, and the horse, which was to destroy the city, was wheeled in.
     "Get out. Hurry! Open the gates. The signalman just signaled that the rest are here!" Odeysseus breathed.
     "Yes, sir!  I'll go open the gates." A soldier named Arioles said.
     "Good. Then hopefully, if everything goes well, we'll see you on the ship."
  Suddenly, there was a great clamoring of armor, and thousands of Greeks came charging in, to the suprise of the Trojans.
     "Odeysseus!" A voice yelled.
     Odeysseus turned and looked at who was speaking. " Arioles!"
     "Odeysseus! Take this torch and throw it into the palace!"
     "Yes, now go! Hurry!"
Odeysseus threw the torch, and Troy went down in flames. Troy was destroyed all because of one wooden horse.

I appreciate your comments on this. Thanks!     -fingerlakeshorsegirl
