My Horse Profile

Miniature Horse from E, CA

Pippin (Remembering Melian)

About Me

Active within 19 Days

I am from E, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 8 years, 4 months and 17 days

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

Miracle's update:
Healing Hearts Animal Rescue and Refuge.
"Friends, it is with heavy heart that we bring you the news of Love's passing. Once we got her safe to our refuge, she started to seize. She had been carefully and thoughtfully examined by 2 vets, as well as monitored 24 hours a day by our staff. We agreed that she needed to be set free, as not to harm herself and to be allowed to pass with dignity. She was surrounded by people who cared, loved and honored her life. She went over the bridge under the warm sun, in the arms of those who saved her from abuse. She was not alone."

hi mighty tiny pippin :)
The farrier was out yesterday and the boys got theirs hooves done and they are all set. Last day of work, I will come back 5/30. Rain is in the forecast but hopefully I can capture a few rides, if not I will get ground work and grooming in there. I also will catch up on rest of the to-do list. I don’t go out of town or doing any other things for vacation as you already know-lol! . I have flown and traveled a many of place my whole life and now I choose to be with my life time love~HORSES! I’ve worked hard all my life to get to where I am now (of course I continue to dream of more with my horses) but my off time is dedicated to them and I’m very happy about that, it truly makes me happy ♡ Have a wonderful day and week ♡

Hi Pippin, here's a vote for ya. Thank you and the rest of the kids for my big milestone vote of 19,000! WOW I'm popular! Nicker Nicker! I'm on really early for me, it's like mid-afternoon. I forgot that I won those tickets to the Rodeo, and it's this afternoon. Doors open 4 pm and Rodeo starts at 6 pm. So we're leaving here about 4:30. Have to feed early and they've all been out all ready for lots of grass time. Hopefully now, the thunder storms we had a chance of getting are out of the picture! Did get the entire lawn mowed this morning also. In between rain drops! LOL! Thank you everyone for voting for Angel H.T. in his run for next month's HOTM! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Pippin, here's a vote for ya. Would like to thank everyone for voting for Angel H.T. in his quest for HOTM for June. We had sunshine and high winds, like steady 16 mph they were saying. I was riding in the indoor with all the doors open and it was like little dust storms blowing through! Both Indy and Paige didn't care about the clipboard with my patterns on it blowing around and the cover to the cabinet bellowing in the wind either. Bless them! They got lots of nice turnout time this afternoon too! I started to clean out the old truck, it leaves next week to go to a friends lot and hopefully someone will see it and buy it. He's owns the body shop on the main drag and he actually sold my old 1978 truck for dad and I back in 1990. Hopefully this one goes just as fast. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

how are you all doing ♡ we got rain all weekend long, the storm Friday evening dumped 1” of ran in a short time and rained off & on all day Sat. and Sun. Sunday evening another Hugh storm came through-I looked at the rain gage this morning it read 4” in it! We are so very wet here and chances of rain all week! Feeding and turn out time is all I’ve had the herd. Have a wonderful Monday!!!

Hi Pippin, here's a vote for ya. Happy Mother's Day to all our 4 legged mom's out there! Not a day off for us here on the farm. Favor please, since I don't know of anyone running for HOTM this month, I'm running Angel Hi Tech in hopes of making it a tri-play win! If only voting and blogging on one page, please use his page this month! Thank you! Trimmed the bushes in front of the house. Rode Indy, yes he got a work out, light one, as he's not in total riding shape at all yet. Then did showmanship with Paige. Had some lunch, then turned them out, it was so nice out. Was about 83 but we always have a nice breeze up here! Then mowed the lawn. Wanted to mow more, but ran out of gas, both the lawn tractor and me! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Pippin, here's a vote for ya. Congrats on the win in the grand entry parade of the rodeo! Pippin is really in good condition, I hope that Eddie has recovered from all the work! I don't know how to share a share. The video was shared to my page on FB and when i hit share, it came up all weird! Hope you get time to just go to my page and watch it. Another beautiful day out there. It hit 91 today, little to hot so fast, but we did have a nice breeze later on in the day. Got all around the Indoor mowed of the weed whacked down grass. Then worked Indy and Paige. Then they got turnout time, they are loving the grass! After that I mowed Paige's pasture. So got a lot accomplished again. Love feeling productive and seeing the results! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Love, a vote and an update on the Mare. From Tandra Hefley:
Update #2
Fox 10 News was just here. Jill Monier interviewed me and Miracle. I couldn't go into detail earlier about what was going on with her, but I want to let everyone know all their efforts to save her paid off! The Livestock Inspector Supervisor was the one that came to get her. She IS NOT being returned to the hell she was forced to endure. She is going to the state vets office to be evaluated and treated. There is a criminal investigation that has been started. So Miracle is safe! I appreciate everyone that came to see her and offered words of encouragement! I wanted to let everyone know earlier that what was being said was garbage! But I was asked not to until she was picked up so that no one could try to interfere. The people or person that tried to claim she was stolen and not left in the road will pay for what they did to her. All I have to say to the people that tried to defend them is check your facts next time! I know everyone that had something to say thought they were doing the right thing. But when an animals life is at stake it doesn't matter who you like or who you don't. All that matters is that animals life!

Hi Pippin, here's a vote for ya. First Indy and I would like to thank everyone for voting him the new HOTM! He's wearing the crown proudly! And he says to tell you, that he was worked everyday at the show and ridden too! Possibly going to make a come back later in the season. Depends on mom's financial situation if she can afford to show two! Love the new truck! Beast is great, smooth, tow haul is fantastic and you don't even know you have 14000 pounds with ya! Paige was awesome! We went circuit champions in the Novice Ranch Horse Pleasure and in the Amateur Ranch Horse Pleasure. I put 2 lifetime points on her in those classes and Marissa put half a point on her Sunday in the open Ranch Horse Pleasure. Don't know if anyone knows who Rocky Dare is or not, but he's a really good reining horse trainer. He showed against Paige in the Open Ranch Horse on a gorgeous Palomino Gelding. Of course he won it. Paige also placed very high in her halter classes! That girl is so correct, even for being just 15 hands! We got home at 9:15 Sunday night and I got in the house by 10:15 and passed out! Well, if any of you are on FB and friends with me, there's a video up from Sundays Nov. Ranch Horse ride of us. Check it out if you haven't all ready. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

This happened last week, just a few miles north of my house. So sorry this is long, but I had to share this with all of you, Evil. Don't know how anyone could do such a horrible thing. I left a vote, too.....Tandra Hefley posted this on her Facebook page.
Ok everyone so here's what happened about 2 am regarding the horse. I am extremely tired, so if I don't explain any of it well, please just ask and I will try to explain a different way.

I was headed home on 331st ave going north. Just as I was almost to Sunland Ave I saw what looked like a roll of carpet or maybe a large cardboard box. I swerved around it and decided I should remove it from the road so someone else wouldn't hit it. I turned around, pulled up about 10 feet from it with my headlights aimed at it, and went to get it. When I was a few feet away, the horse raised its head and nickered to me. I almost threw up! This poor animal was hog tied like a kidnap victim would be! Her front legs were tied, the nylon strap went to her back legs, then over her back to her throat. If she tried to move the strap would choke her. I didn't have a knife, so I tried to pull enough slack to get it off one hoof. She would panic when it tightened on her throat and I would have to stop. There was a car headed in our direction so I frantically pull on it and she trusted me enough to get one leg free. Then I quickly undid the rest and tried to get her to stand. She has deep cuts in her legs and throat from fighting, but I did get her up. That's when I saw the hair and blood on the pavement. Somebody had hit her as she lay helpless on the road. I slowly walked her to the side of the road and started calling people for help. Shawn Funkhouser got my trailer and came to help me. It took her two tries, but she loaded like a champ! We got her to my house and called MCSO. They came and made a report as well as called the Felony Animal Crimes Division to make sure whoever did this pays for it! This morning about 7 Natasja Pieters Robbins came and made a report for the Dept of Agriculture Livestock. She is already working to find the person who did this.

As injured as this poor mare is, she never tried to bite or kick me. She did everything I asked of her, even though she is in more pain than I even want to imagine. She has been starved for at least the last year. She is about 600 lbs under weight. She was tied and left to die on a dark road. She was hit by a car and her skin ripped off on the pavement. But she will walk right up and give horse kisses. She will nickered at me as soon as she sees me. And she allows me to clean and doctor her dozens of wounds without protest. No animal should have to endure what this sweet, kind, beautiful, and loving mare has had to endure!

Thank you to Angie Shelley Bassett, Frank Joseph Cooper Jr., T.j. Furness, and Pat Page for your help as well!

With school, an overload of homework and work, it's hard for Austin to have the time. He's done with School on the 22nd. Will have it finished, then. Love always and a vote.

Hi Pippin, here's a vote for ya. Everyone, thank you for supporting Indy in his run for HOTM and please continue to vote for him while he's at the horse show with us. Posted a picture of Beast and the rig hooked up. In case you didn't see it on FB. It looks sharp! Can't wait to drive it! Well I think I've got it all covered now. Just a few last minute things into the trailer in the morning and we're off! Finished loading the trailer this morning. Then washed Paige's mid-weight blanket for the show. Indy got lunged and so did Paige. Both got trims of their whiskers and all other hair that had to be removed for showing. Dragged the indoor good so it'll be ready and fluffy when we get home. Mowed the pasture as you walk to the barn. Parts of it were 8 inches tall all ready and other parts were bare yet! Go figure! Now to just make sure I don't forget to load the horses, we'll be good to go! Will miss y'all! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Pippin, here's a vote for ya. Well had to run up to Dr. Larry's and pick-up my Coggins papers. They just came in on Sat and if they mailed them today, I wouldn't have them by Wed 9 am. So I took a short ride and got them. Then got home and packed some more of the LQ trailer stuff. Got their hay and feed all done and in there. Put in more of my stuff. Just have drinks and food to go in tomorrow and then load the truck with my bags of shavings and muck bucket and wheel barrel and I should be good to go at 9 AM Wed. morn. Lunged Indy and Paige and then did some more showmanship work with Paige. Will ride tomorrow and then pack up my work saddle, pad and bridle. Have to put clean blankets in trailer too, now that I think of that. Can't wait to get there. Almost a 4 hour drive. But with the new truck I'll feel more comfortable hauling. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Got the Beast hooked up to the LQ Trailer and will position it tomorrow to start loading up. Lunged Indy and Paige and then did showmanship with Paige. This afternoon they all got pasture time outside on grass. Happy Horses! And yes one happy donkey too! Pastures were a little soft and they all left devits running and playing for about 30 seconds, then it was serious grass time! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
