A Day at the Stables Part 1

Ok, I just have to say that I LOVE this week’s theme at Camp Doll Diaries [http://dolldiaries.com/horse-feeding-fun-for-you-and-your-dolls/]! It’s all about HORSES!!! If you know me really well, then you know that I LOVE horses and that they’re my favorite animal πŸ˜€
All of my “daughters” love horses, too, but three of them love them as much as me (which is A LOT!). When they heard what the theme was this week they were so thrilled!

All of the girls in Little Lilacs Cabin had just finished putting on their boots andΒ were chatting away.

Addy- “Girls- May I have your attention, please?”
All of the excited faces turned to Cabin Leader, Addy.

Addy- “Thank you. Now, before we head off to the Stables we have some quick rules to go over. Rule #1: We want you all to have a “buddy”, so get into groups of two, please. Rule #2: When at the stables please be very calm and don’t be afraid. Horses can sense fear and if they do, it might make them a little jittery. Rule #3: Listen closely toΒ what Cabin Leaders Saige and Felicity will beΒ telling you. They will tell you all about the horses and how to care for them. Rule#4: Please control yourself. If one of you girls are anxious to pet the horse when it’s not yet time, please be patient. You will each get a chance to pet it. Is everything clear?”

Everyone- “Yes, Addy!”

Addy- “Good, then let’s head over to the Stables!”

After quite a while they reached the Stables. Saige was there to greet them along with Felicity.

Saige- “Hi girls! Welcome to the Stables! This is the sweet horse we’ll be looking at today. Her name is Penny and she is the perfect horse for any beginner rider. Please gather around and Felicity and I will tell you all you need to know.”

image

Saige and Felicity told them all about the tack such as-Β saddles, bridles, bits,Β Β horse shoes, and boots. They told them about the care supplies for horses such as all the differentΒ types of brushes, curry combs, fly spray, conditioner, and fly masks. They also told themΒ how to treatΒ a horseΒ if they get hurt.

Saige- “And now I need a volunteer to groom Penny.”

Annika, who had never been around a horse before (although she loves them) offered excitedly!

image

Annika brushed through Penny’s mane until it was all nice and pretty. It was her dream come true to be around a horse :)

Felicity- “You’re doing very well, Annika!”

image

Saige- “She looks beautiful! Nice job!”

Annika- “Thank you!”

Felicity- “Why don’t you give her an apple for being such a good girl?”

Annika gasped- “Can I?”

Felicity- “Of course!”

image

Annika- “There you go, Penny. That’s a good girl.”

Saige- “Well, who’s ready to saddle up?”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And that is where we end Part 1!
So, how did you like it? Don’t you feel so happy for Annika? It kind of reminds me of myself :)

And in case you’re wondering you can see a couple of the things I made. I made some apples out of Model Magic Clay, I used Easter Grass for some hay, and the rest you haven’t seen- yet πŸ˜€

I hope you’re all having a great week!
Oh! and one more question- What have your dolls been doing at Camp?
~Jaclynn~

  • Oooh. Fun post. :) I thought the theme was going to be great, but the stuff they had wasn’t right for our camp. I don’t have a doll horse and all. At least one for them to ride. So they really haven’t been doing camp this week. :/ I still have their cabin set up, but I smallened it so we can get in to our closet. LOL! The cabin was blocking the closet, so it was a BIG pain to get in it. πŸ˜› πŸ˜€ And I made a lot of books for my dolls and my sisters’ dolls, so they wanted to read them. πŸ˜‰
    I have to say, Annika is one of the cutest dolls I have ever seen. I think anyway. πŸ˜‰ She is so, well, neat, and well, cute! πŸ˜€ And I am sure she would look gorgeous if she is a beautiful dress. :)
    That hay is so cool! I really like it. :) And the apples are good too. But what I like even more, is that pail. :) πŸ˜‰
    Do you really have boots for ALL of your dolls? I don’t have a single pair of boots, which is too bad, because they like to go in the snow.
    So Annika likes horses? Well, I am not surprised, considering who plays with her. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰
    Oh, and I like your stable, too. :)
    Your camp looks so fun!! :)
    ~Christian Homeschooler

    • Thank you :)
      Ooooh, I see! But what about the horse with Josefina that you used to enter the Photo Challenge?
      LOL! I can’t even get into my closet right now. I really need to clean my room! LOLOL! πŸ˜€
      She is SO adorable! LOL! Oh, yes! I actually put her in a little dress and she looked gorgeous! Maybe she needs a photoshoot! LOLOLOL!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›
      Yeah, Easter grass is perfect for hay! Thank you :)
      Oh, yeah! The pails are cool. We found them at Target on the dollar aisle. And something cool about them is that they have a mini chalkboard on them! πŸ˜€
      Yep, I do! Aw, that’s sad! Well, I have a lot of boots because practically every single HC comes wearing boots, some of their outfits come with boots, and I received the Casual Boots for Christmas. So that’s why I have a lot- Hehe! πŸ˜€
      Yes, she loves horses! LOL! Yep, you know me! πŸ˜€ Plus, she’s interested in all of the things I like since she’s a MAG- hehe! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
      Thank you SO much! I’m glad you like it πŸ˜€
      ~Jaclynn~

      • You are welcome. :)
        OH, but that horse would be a foal for them, not to mention it is for Barbies. My sister has a miniture horse for her doll, but of course that isn’t ridable. My sister really wants to have Penny. :) I would like to have the Western horse if a could have a horse. But they don’t even sell that one anymore. :/
        :) Oh, well that’s how mine was. πŸ˜€ Haha! I actually KIND of like to clean my room, just because I like a clean room. πŸ˜‰
        Yes, she is!! πŸ˜€ Yes she would! She is SUCH a lovely doll. :) Yes I think she does!!
        You’re welcome!! :)
        Oh, that’s so cool!
        Oh, yeah, I guess that’s true. Well boots are actually a really good doll accessory. :)
        Haha! Yes, I do. πŸ˜€ RIght-you can make a personality for her. :) Actually we are making personalities for all the My AG dolls. Even though we don’t have any. πŸ˜‰
        You’re welcome! I am glad too. πŸ˜€
        ~Christian Homeschooler

        • Oh, ok! That stinks :(
          The Western horse was cool! I would like to have the Palomino- she’s so pretty :)
          Oh, I don’t like cleaning it at all! It seems like a waste of time πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›
          LOLOL! I think she does, too πŸ˜‰
          They are! I ADORE boots! They’re so fun! In the winter all I wear is boots πŸ˜€
          Hehe! That sounds like fun :)
          ~Jaclynn~

          • Yes, it was. Such a pretty black. :) And I like the chestnut horse too. :)
            A waste of time!? But don’t you LIKE a clean room? πŸ˜‰ I do. :)
            Oh, you do? I really like to wear sneakers or flip-flops most of time. Not flip-flops in the winter, though! πŸ˜€
            Yes, it is SO much fun. We make them on the computer by email! I do it with my sisters, and my older sister has an email! πŸ˜€
            ~Christian Homeschooler

          • Yeah, it was :)
            Oh, I love the Chestnut horse! So pretty!!
            LOLOLOLOL!! Yeah, I do- so I can set up something to make it messy again!! LOLOLOLOL!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›
            Yeah, throughout the year I wear flip-flops, but when it’s cold outside (winter or fall- hehe) I always wear boots! I never wear tennies though. I don’t like them- hehe!
            I have the most AMAZING flip-flops! The brand is called Sanuk- pronounced Suh-nook- and they are made out of yoga mat! They mold to your feet and are so comfortable! It’s all I ever wear! :)
            Oh, that’s cool! Does your older sister live somewhere else? I’m just wondering why you do it by email- I thought you only had one older sister πŸ˜‰
            ~Jaclynn~

  • Oh, wow! My comment is waaay long. oops. πŸ˜›

  • I DO know you love horses. πŸ˜€

  • I LOVE Annika’s hair. :)

  • Okay, so I didn’t know you got Saige’s horse parade outfit!! When did you get it? I didn’t think you got the starter collection.

    • I got it when I got her on my birthday- February 21st- Hehe!
      And, no I actually didn’t get the Starter Collection πŸ˜€
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Okay!
        Yeah, I was pretty sure you didn’t get the starter collection. OH, and what do you think of her hot air balloon? I don’t really think it is that great. πŸ˜›

        • Hehe- if I get Saige’s Sweater Outfit then I should’ve just bought the Starter! LOLOL! πŸ˜›
          I like it, but I wouldn’t use it. It would be a fun thing to have sometimes like for fantasy stories or if your doing an Oz play, though πŸ˜‰
          ~Jaclynn~

          • Oh, yeah, that’s right! You have everything else of the starter. πŸ˜› So I’m guessing you aren’t getting that? πŸ˜€ I don’t have it, but I think there are better AG outfits to get. πŸ˜‰
            Yeah, I wouldn’t really use it either. And it has got to be a space hog. πŸ˜› I would rather a horse or a bed from AG. πŸ˜‰
            ~Christian Homeschooler

          • Yep, I do!
            No, I don’t plan on purchasing the Starter! LOLOL! πŸ˜€
            Yeah, there are I guess. It depends on how you look at it :)
            Oh, yeah! Definitely! I would rather have the Stables- I really want to get that someday :)
            ~Jaclynn~

  • oh! You like horses? I LOVE horses too! Is your horse from AG? I might get a horse but from our generation or something.
    I have a stuffed animal horse that is HUGE not like something I could sit on or anything but it is laying down. It is also longer then the doll.
    We found it at goodwill and so she washed it and it is “brand new”
    Although I will save up for a horse!
    I LOVE your grass and apples!!
    SO CUTE!!
    Annika looks adorable!! Linda says they should be on a magazine!

    Adorable again!
    -Grace AG Lover

    • Yes, they’re my favorite animal!! I take riding lessons once a week, too :)
      That’s awesome! There’s another way that we’re alike :)
      Yes, it’s Penny- Felicity’s horse πŸ˜‰ Yeah, the OG horses are cute- and cheaper- LOL! πŸ˜›
      That’s cool! I love ‘Fun Finds’ πŸ˜€
      You mean- a real one? I’m going to save up for one as well! How cool is that?
      Thank you!
      Hehe- I think she does, too πŸ˜€
      LOLOL! That would be fun!
      Thanks, again :)
      ~Jaclynn~

      • no…not a real one

        oh I forgot about felicity’s horse!
        Yes the OG ones are very cute!
        Thats cool how you take horse riding lessons!
        I rode a horse one: My dad and I were looking at miniature cows that we might of gotten the same breed of and, I saw a horse that caught my eye. It turned out to be the neighbors horse and the man let us go and check it out.
        it turned out that the lady was outside and I got to feed the horse a treat and ride it!
        Yep! That’s another thing in common! If we lived nearby we would most likely be friends!

        • Oh, ok- hehe! πŸ˜›

          Yeah- I love Penny! She’s so pretty! My sister got her for me for my birthday when I got Felicity :)
          Yes, they are cute!
          Thanks! :)
          That’s awesome! And very rare that the lady let you ride! Most people wouldn’t allow it. You were very lucky :)
          Well, I think we are already friends- online :)
          ~Jaclynn~

  • It looks like your dolls had a LOT of fun!
    I think it was really sweet that they let Annika groom and feed Penny! πŸ˜€
    Hehe! Felicity looks so 1700’s and Saige looks so modern!
    Oh I forgot you had Penny! I have 2 OG horses, but no AG horses, but I think it would be fun to get one someday :)
    Well, a few of my dolls are going to go on a ride pretty soon here, and some have been outside, like Saige has been painting outside (taking advantage of the change of scenary), and others have been doing crafts!
    ~Carli

    • They did! :)
      I know- they’re so nice- hehe! πŸ˜€
      LOLOLOL!!! I didn’t really think about that! It does seem kinda funny, huh? πŸ˜›
      The OG horses are cute- and cheaper πŸ˜› I would like to get one of those sometime so that the girls can go riding together :)
      That sounds like fun! Have you been doing this week’s theme?
      It sounds like your dolls are having great time at camp! πŸ˜€
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Hehe! πŸ˜€
        I didn’t quite realize it either, until I was looking back at the pics! Yeah, it does seem pretty funny! πŸ˜›
        Yeah they are pretty cute! That’s what I like about having 2 OG horses, so 2 of my girls can go riding together :)
        Yeah, I have, but I haven’t been able to do as many of the crafts and I wanted to, but I have gone a little freestyle and added some more stuff to the barn, and I plan to add a little bit more later today! And my dolls have been learning a little bit about horses, and spent a little bit more time out in the barn.
        They are! πŸ˜€
        ~Carli

        • It IS funny! πŸ˜€
          Exactly! It’s really sad if they have to go on their own :(
          Oh, ok.
          That’s good that they’re doing stuff with the horses :)
          I didn’t do anything today so the post will be coming tomorrow- hopefully πŸ˜€
          ~Jaclynn~

          • Yeah, I know. :( But I think both of my OG horses, I found at garage sales! And they’re in pretty good condition too, and one even came with an OG doll, but I can’t remember what happened to that doll.
            Yeah, and they’re contiuing now that we’re totally redoing the barn! And my room looks like a tornado hit! Luckily my mom hasn’t seen it yet…
            Oh okay! πŸ˜€
            ~Carli

          • That’s so cool! I wish I had good luck like that, but we don’t go to garage sales around here πŸ˜›
            Aw, poor doll :(
            That’s good! LOLOLOL!!! I understand that! πŸ˜€
            Hehe!
            ~Jaclynn~

  • ADORABLE. I love it soooo cute! I use Easter Grass for hay, too!!!!!

  • Yeah. Which gait of the AG horses do you like better: the western horse & and Jackson, or Penny’s? I don’t really know which one I like better. πŸ˜‰
    Haha! Well, sometimes I do that to. But sometimes I just like to have a clean room. πŸ˜‰
    Do you wear shoes inside, though? I almost never do. You don’t like sneakers? Well, I guess one of the reasons that I really like to wear sneakers is because I have really good sneakers. :)
    I have really good flip-flops, too! I actually have two pretty good pairs. πŸ˜‰ But my better ones are Okabashi. And they aren’t like regular old flip-flops. :)
    Oh, well actually, I have two older sisters-one who is still at home and one who isn’t. But we do it by email-well it is kind of complicated, but it kind works better that way. I have a list of things that needs to be filled for her profile, and my sister sends suggestions for the list. And then I put it into a word document. :)
    ~Christian Homeschooler

    • Um- I don’t know! I don’t remember Jackson at all and the Western Horse I remember, but don’t- you know what I mean? πŸ˜›
      My room never has nothing set up. Something is always happening in there! LOLOL! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›
      No, I don’t. My brother wears shoes like 24/7, though! The only time he doesn’t is when he goes to bed and first wakes up. After that- all day is “Shoes and socks!” LOL!
      No, for me they’re not comfortable. I’m not a sneakers/tennies kinda person πŸ˜‰
      Well, that’s good! :)
      Oooooohhh!!! Okay, I get it now. And now I also remember about the other older sister πŸ˜›
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Oh, okay!! Well here is a link to a picture of Jackson: http://americangirl.wikia.com/wiki/Jackson_the_Horse
        Really? hehe! That’s not really true for me. I just usually have shoes strewn all over the place. πŸ˜› And also, I almost ALWAYS have stuff behind my bed. πŸ˜€
        Okay! Oh, wow! That’s kind of weird. πŸ˜‰
        Oh, well maybe you need a pair of my sneakers. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€
        Yeah. πŸ˜‰
        ~Christian Homeschooler

        • Ok, thanks! I’ll ask my mom if I can go to that site to see it :)
          LOL! Well, I can’t have stuff behind my bed because I have a loft bed πŸ˜‰
          Hehe! I know, it is wierd πŸ˜›
          LOLOL! πŸ˜›
          ~Jaclynn~

          • You are welcome! Yeah, actually it is really helpful/ :) It is wiki american girl. They have stuff like all the Just Like You Dolls/ My AG dolls they have ever made. Check out the Whole site!! :)
            Oh, well. You can put stuff under your bed. I do that too. πŸ˜‰ I actually share a bunk bed with my older sister(the one that is still at home. ;)). I have the bottom bunk.
            haha!
            ~Christian Homeschooler

          • Oh, wow! That’s awesome! I’ll be sure to ask my mom if I can visit the site :)
            Hehe! Not, really because my doll’s room is under my loft bed πŸ˜‰
            Oh, ok! I use to share a bunk bed, too :)
            ~Jaclyn~

  • Hey, Jaclynn! If you are too impatient fot your AG catalog to come(or did it?), then you can view it online, here: http://store.americangirl.com/agshop/static/ecatalog.jsp
    I am right now!! πŸ˜€

    • I actually do have it! I got it a couple of days ago now. I plan to do a little read-through/review video on it! Maybe today πŸ˜€
      Thank you for linking that to me, though! You’re so nice :)
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Oh, that’s great for you! We haven’t gotten one yet. :( I really want to get onee!! Oh, I’d love it if you did that!! :)
        Oh, you’re welcome!! It was no problem. :)
        ~Christian Homeschooler

  • Hey Jaclynn, do you have post numbers, so you know how many posts you have done?

    • Yes, I do! Would you like me to check πŸ˜‰
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Actually, yes I’d like to know. :) You could do a special post for say, 50 or 100. :)

        • I have done a total of 66 posts! So I guess the “Special” post will have to be for 100 πŸ˜€
          ~Jaclynn~

          • Oh, wow! That seems like a lot! :)
            Yeah, you’ll have lots of time to think something up. πŸ˜‰ You could actually do something special with your viewers. Like, have them all say something they really like about your blog. And lots more. Maybe you could post something asking viewers to give ideas for an 100 post. Like my ideas? πŸ˜‰

          • It does seem like a lot! πŸ˜€
            Yes, I LOVE your ideas! I’ll definitely consider them :)
            Thank you so much! :)
            ~Jaclynn~

  • What is your favorite part of the catalog? For me It is hard to choose! Which bitty twin outfit do you like better? The new one or the old one?

    • I don’t really know the answer to the first question. Can I just say the entire thing? LOL! πŸ˜›
      Definitely the new one! I wish they had that outfit when I bought Mickey and Minnie last year- I’m gonna have to buy both of them! πŸ˜€
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Heehe! Me too I can’t pick either!
        I like the new ones too! I am going to ask for the bitty twins (brown hair/eyes light skin)For Christmas! Hmm I have never heard about Mickey and Minnie.
        My dolls personalities are going to be like yours kinda…
        Here is a little description ( I remember our last talk about bitty twins! Their names and stuff! It still makes me giggle!)
        Jacob: Likes to pull Jennifer’s hair but he can be really sweet sometimes.
        His favorite person is kit because they like to rough-house which their mother (me) does not approve of.
        Jennifer: Is often called jenny and she is a sweet little girl.Although she is very sensitive and cries when her brother says anything rude.
        Just a basic description!
        -Your friend,
        Grace AG Lover

        • Oh, really? Yeah, Mickey and Minnie are the African/American ones :)
          Hehe! Yep, Jacob sounds like my Caleb! I think if they were to meet they’d get into a lot of trouble together! LOLOL! πŸ˜›
          Hehe! Jenny does sound a bit like Kendra, too :)
          ~Jaclynn~
          P.S. I still think it’s funny that you’re naming them Jacob and Jennifer!! πŸ˜€
          They are great names, though :)

  • Yeah, it is really cool. :)
    Oh, well that’s okay, because a doll room is better then just any old thing. πŸ˜‰
    Oh, you did? I really like a bunk bed. :) Didn’t you like it? :)
    ~Christian Homeschooler
    P.S. Did you see From a Friend Friday? πŸ˜€

    • Yes, a doll room is better :)
      Yeah, but that was years ago when I shared a room wiht both of my brothers. And the bunk bed creaked a lot so it was kinda annoying. I love my loft bed, too, but sometimes I wish I had a bed on the ground. Especially when I’m sick so I don’t have to lie on the floor πŸ˜‰
      All in all I did like the bunk bed :)
      ~Jaclynn~
      P.S. Yes, I did! I just didn’t comment. Your pictures look great! I love Josefina’s violin! πŸ˜€

  • yikes that was long Sorry!

  • Totally agree! I am sure every one else here agrees too! πŸ˜€
    Oh, that is annoying. πŸ˜› I know about annoying bunk beds. There is a bunk bed at my Grandma’s that I sleep on. And I sleep on the bottom bunk. And if I sit up then I’ll catch my hair in some metal things on the top of me. πŸ˜› It is SO annoying. πŸ˜›
    ~Christian Homeschooler
    P.S. Great! Thanks! Yes, I love it! Thanks again! Do you like Elsie’s doll? :)

    • Oh, yes- I’m quite sure πŸ˜€
      Oh, that’s super annoying! And even my loft bed, too! I can’t climb up without making it creak! Ugh! LOLOL! πŸ˜›
      ~Jaclynn~
      P.S. You’re welcome!
      Yes, I did! She’s a cute little doll :)

      • hehe!
        Yes, it is! Fortunately, it is not like that here, at home. πŸ˜‰ Oh, well, our bunk bed is going to fall apart someday-well, maybe not exactly like that. But it creaks so much, sometimes I’m afraid it will. πŸ˜› πŸ˜€
        ~Christian Homeschooler
        P.S. I’m glad you think so. :)

  • Are you going to watch the Saige movie tonight? I hope I will!

    • No, I won’t. We don’t watch TV and I’m going to the Dodger game today- so even if I wanted to I couldn’t πŸ˜‰
      If you watch it be sure to tell me what you think about it! πŸ˜€
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Oh, you don’t? I don’t either. But we have a TV. πŸ˜‰
        Okay! I am not sure if I will tonight. But hopefully sometime. :)

        • No, we watch movies instead- LOL! πŸ˜€
          Yeah, I hope we rent it soon :)
          ~Jaclynn~

          • Oh, well movies are sometimes on the TV-like now. πŸ˜‰
            You should! And we ARE going to watch it tonight!!!!! πŸ˜€
            ~Christian Homeschooler

          • Hehe! That’s true!
            Awesome! I hope you like it πŸ˜€
