But languages are terrible for me.

I've been here for a short time and reading many things but I need a lot of time to understand what you write...

My name is Elke or Vlinderbloem. I'm 20 years old, I try to studing but it didn't work for me.
I was going be depressed and very stressed when they tell me, go to another school.

It were difficult times, but there were many animals at home who need me.
In the summer was Mira (my small donkey) come, she is traumatized.
She still thinks that she will be beaten.

But in October I had no classes found to follow.
So now I'm looking around for work...
But I found also some classes at the evening.
I'm learning, halter and saddle to making and repair them.
And I did found Josepha and Taonara. :yes:

The first cursus opens my mind. ;)
Now I do understand many more between de horses and all the other animals at us.

We tried my sister's horse to listen to Parelli and Monty then even Hempfling.
With Parreli en Monty she was very agresief.
With Hempfling we came a small way...

But now with AND it is going others but better...
I think it comes she is a alfa, but we are not sure about that.

I hope to learn many things here ...

The movie of the cows who Josepha posted is between me and us cows...
And I've had 1 hours needed to write this post... :huh:

Welcome, Elke!! So nice to have you here. :)

Your cow movie is just fantastic, they all look so playful and happy.

I am looking forward to reading more about you and your animals, and don't worry about the English, it will get easier with some practise.

Warm Regards,
Romy

Hello, Elke, and welcome. I think your writing is very good - I could not do so well if I tried to write in your language.

I thought your cows were amazing. I've never thought of cows as personalities before, so thank you for teaching me that.

Welcome!

I really liked the movie of the cows :applause:

It is hard sometimes to write in English, but... I think you are doing wonderfully, we understand you and you understand us (though maybe somewhat slower), that's one of the many features I love about this group of people. Somehow we no matter what seem to speak the same language and seem to understand eachothers English. When I can't find the right word in English I usualy put down the Dutch word and a 'sorry I don't know the english but it is as...' and then explain. To me this really helped me a great deal haha :funny:

Welcome, hopefully you will open more eyes, and help opening my eyes wider open (is this english? See... there you have it :P )

Hello and welcome to you Bloem.

Well done managing two languages, I am from the UK and do not always use grammatically correct English.

I wonder if these free translation sites might be of some help to you?

With love from Susie xx

Hello en onthaal aan u Bloem.
Goed uitgevoerd beherend twee talen, ben ik van het UK en gebruik niet altijd grammaticaal het correcte Engels.
Ik ben benieuwd of zouden deze vrije vertaalplaatsen van één of andere hulp aan u kunnen zijn?

hihi Piepony, your dutch is very funny :) it's a bit too dusted ;)

and welcome to you Elke, I hope you will enjoy it here (of course you will), I love the course you're following, I had been looking in on it too, but I have no spare money at the moment...

So cool that you will learn working with leather, if you make something, post a picture, I would love to see it!!!

Barbara

My anything other than English is non existent, I rely on Babelfish for translation, so it could make me say eat chocolate and drink beer when dieting!!!
