My Horse Profile

Miniature Horse from E, CA

Pippin (Remembering Melian)

About Me

Active within 45 Days

I am from E, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 9 years, 1 month and 1 day

Nicknames: Lost Spoke's Winter Bay Mist

Age: 10 years old

Gender: Stallion

Breed: Miniature Horse

Height: 31" & 200lbs

Color: Bay Roan/Appaloosa with a white star and snip.

Type of Riding: I drive him because he is too small to ride.

My Horse's Achievements: He is very smart and learns new things almost instantaneously- .

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Fruit. But I haven't found anything he doesn't like.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Eat, drive, jump, go on walks, and generally do anything to be around people.

He is very sweet and lovable but he is also a stallion and as such his personality is very feisty and fiery and he always likes to test me. As soon as I've established that I'm yet again in charge he's fine. He also likes to nip. I make sure that he knows that I'm the boss and that nipping is absolutely not allowed. But sometimes he can't resist the temptation and he will try.

Whenever he sees me he neighs excitedly and runs over to say hello. He loves company. He likes people to just be around him and he will graze happily. And he will give me a kiss every morning before he gets his hay. He has such a soft nose, it's perfect for kissing! When he is eating I can do anything to him. Food is key and he will do anything for it. He has learned all kinds of tricks this way. He knows how to turn around either specified direction, paw the ground with either specified front hoof, rear and walk on his hind legs, stand on a stump with his front hooves, jump, lie down and roll over like a dog, bow, and all the basis ground manners required of a good horse.

He learns so quickly that he'll know a trick after just three tries or less. And he never forgets anything. Even a year later he'll remember something that happened even though in the interim there were no reminders. He's good with lungeing and he loves to pull his cart and really puts his mind and heart into it. He's like the little engine that could! The only thing so far that has bothered him is water but with persuasion he will go through it. Anyway, he is a lot of work and I absolutely love him and love working with him. And he loves to work too, which is really helpful.

Pet Peeves: Taking baths and large puddles. Oh, and needles. He HATES needles but who likes needles?

My Horse's motto: Eat, run, and be merry.
DOB 18th, April, 2005.

He was a gift from the breeder, Lost Spoke Ranch. He is the gift that keeps on giving (and taking as much he as can too). See lots more pictures below. And yes, they are all the same horse. Check out his YouTube videos. http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=5PX- nKN208rs

Well, today the temps are nice, high 20's and maybe even hit 30++, will be nice, but.....then they start going down, down down.
I see that our helmet by Troxel is back....so can start saving those points again. Not as nice as the last one, but still it is a helmet. Whisper and the little herd are sending you a morning vote.

Sorry I'm on late. I had a full day, but fun. My sister and brother in law came up this morning to visit their daughter, my niece. We had a long breakfast visit, and then I had volunteered to help man the Marsh Tacky booth at the SC horse expo this afternoon. There were 2 Tackies there, and a lot of Tacky friends, new and old. One of them had an equine chiropracter look at her mare. It was interesting to watch one at work.
I got home with just enough daylight to ride Allie and work BJ. For some reason, when I asked for a lope, Allie kinda hit a fast lope and kept going and going and going. She never did slow down on her own, I had to stop her. It was kinda fun.
That's so sad that Pippin still visits his friend's grave. I know that hits you hard.
Hope you're having a good weekend.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom,Gracie.

I had a nice day off. It was sunny but the wind chill was cold. The boys just grazed all day while I did a few chores and even took a 15 minute nap! In the afternoon I actually saw geese flying back north, I guess we are having a early spring. I thought all my HC friends up north would find that to be uplifting news!!! I will try and ride Tuesday when I'm off and if not I am off Friday and Saturday and it will be in the 70's again. I can't hardy wait ♡

Just trying to get a few more votes in this morning. Nice outside this morning, I think it was 17 when I did chores, up to 23 now. Light snow, a inch or so, each night, but its not enough to cover up my trail across the lawn to the barn/shed. I wish I had a real barn, but the Menard shed is divided into a shop, and back part I have hay, a tack room, feed room, which is now filled with "stuff". Pen for the babies, Pickles and Paisley, plus a pen for the noisey guineas hens. Hope your weekend is great.

I'm so happy about the new corral panels! Sadie's happy, too. The extra 30 feet made a huge difference. Going to get another panel as soon as I can. Leaving love and votes. Happy Friday!

Yay! Corral panels are up. A friend helped me with them. She brought a 5 year old girl named Rosie with her. Lisa said Rosie has the mental capacity of a 2 year old. She brought a bag of carrots for Sadie and fed them to her. Rosie, also, rode bareback. My internet is running soooo slow. Taking forever to vote. Hope you're all doing well. Love to each of you and a vote.

The wind is horrible and cold. Rained last night. Sadie's corral is flooded, again. Rick's suppose to pick up my new corral panels today. Those panels will be connected on the west side at a slightly uphill angle. Should give her dryer space. Anxious to get the corral expanded, too. Have a wonderful Monday. Love and a vote.

This weekend is wonderful as far as temps are. In the 30's, but last night when we came out of Mass/Church, it was raining, which is never good this time of the year. Nothing seemed slippery this morning, so must not have rained too much. Getting a few more eggs each day....up to 3 now. Would like to start incubator up, but have to get a different rooster so just will not take the chance on getting deformed baby chicks. Whisper was right there this morning, waiting for her treats. Give her a candy cane each morning, and of course all the little ones get there cup of grain, well more like 2 cups. Whisper and the little herd are sending you and your herd a Sunday morning vote.

Got to put the door back on the hay shed. It fell off the hinges. What I repaired is still holding. I started Sadie back on Psyllium pellets, today. Something I have to keep up with. Too many horses have been lost to colic. Leaving love, always and a vote.

Leaving a quick cold morning vote! Suppose to be windy today! Got a ride in on Darby a few days ago. In the afternoon, which it was windy. He did well, a little frisky and jumpy. I didn't lope because he was tripping, the ground is very bad. And I didn't want his to break a sweat before the cold. Well, hope all is well! Gonna try and vote everyone today! My server is still bad! Best wishes!

I let Sadie out, after work, to get some exercise, to roam, and of course, plunder. The only thing she got into was the hay shed. I had to keep shooing her away. After an hour and a half, I put her up, giving her apples and carrots. Hoping to get that door back on, today. Love and a vote.

Busy day off from work, caught up on some chores. Waiting for Austin to have a day off with me, so I can get the door put back on my hay shed. As soon as Rick's back is better, he's picking up the corral panels. Anxious to get Sadie's corral expanded, so she can have a bigger area. Hard having to wait. Going to saddle up as soon as I can. Sadie and I both need it. Love and a vote.

About Eddie: Eddie was an 18 year old Percheron who was a member of HC for 8 years. He was from E Ca. and stood 18.2 hh. I met Eddie when I first joined HC in 2010. He was HOTM several times. I've enjoyed his adventures and reading about his gentle spirit. 2000 lb. Eddie passed away from colic on January 19th. He leaves behind his loving friend Pippin, a miniature horse. who now grieves for his best friend. Eddie touch the hearts of many including me. I didn't have the privilege of meeting him personally.

Trying to stay awake, today. I worked last night. When I got home, I let Sadie out of her corral and let her run. She ran for about 10 minutes or so. What a beautiful sight! Can't let her out to roam around until I get the door back on her hay shed. Monday's my next day off, so hoping to have it repaired by then.
Rick's picking up the 2 corral panels on his next days off. Holidays are busy where he works. He's working on his schedule days off. I have a 10 hour shift tomorrow, too. Austin did a great job of keeping Sadie's water trough clean. So thankful.
Much to do. Leaving love and a vote. Have a great weekend.

Such a long day, yesterday. So wonderful to be back home. It was hard leaving my mom. She's not herself, anymore. Becoming feeble.
Scruffy was happy to see me. It took my cats a few minutes. Sadie didn't seem to notice I'd been gone. They had Austin taking care of them, so they all were content. The rain here has made a mess of Sadie's corral. Can't let her out, because she tore on of the doors off of my hay shed, and I haven't had a chance to work on it. She tore down her mister, too.
Thanks for being there. Leaving love and a vote.
