My Horse Profile

Miniature Horse from E, CA

Pippin (Remembering Melian)

About Me

Active within 16 Days

I am from E, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 7 years, 11 months and 13 days

Nicknames: Lost Spoke's Winter Bay Mist

Age: 9 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.

♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.

☆ Deacon’s registered name is “One More Special”, he surely is one special horse to me. Deacon was born with what people call a “prophet’s thumb”. It is an indention on the right side of his neck. I’m told it is from him lying on his hoof while in his mother’s womb. We thank you for your support during this HOTM run =) Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =) P.S. hoping to pick up Whiskey today!

I posted a picture of Godiva giving cart rides at the sheriff dept toy drive yesterday. it was a fun day for me. Michael came along to help. sadly, being a novice about carts and not mechanically smart at all, we overinflated the tires and one of them popped! sounded like a gunshot. godiva was relaxed and didn't even flinch. we did not have a spare so we headed home. it was a few hours away so it made for a long day but fun. godiva did not want to stand still while waiting for customers. she kept jittering around so I let her graze. the other lady there was appalled that I would do such a thing. she said, "you should never let a horse graze in a bit." I know that but since godiva hadn't been hitched up for a year I felt like "whatever works" to keep her standing still was okay by me. we also canter in the cart which is naughty (unless you're showing at a very high level) so please don't tell santa! we only walked with the kids yesterday though, of course

I'm hoping to talk to our Dr. C today, Charlie is OK as long as he is on the high dose of ulcer meds, I'm making small changes in his feed program, adding thing to help with is hind gut digestion and taking away grains which I have learned are very hard on their tummy's. Marion has been a huge support, when i feel like I'm loosing it, she picks me back up. I can't explain how this is a constant worry, I just want him well again. Marion also suggested that the stall kicking may be a symptom of the ulcers? could be...Love Donna Lee

Dr. C should b home tomorrow, OMG I have had such a stressful week without him. Charlie had one mild episode on Thursday evening, but we were able to stop it with more ulcer meds. he is back on the max amount....I found a great website with some home remedies for diet. I am making feed changes myself, since the nutritionists have been NO HELP, thank you very much. Have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

☆ I have the same farrier for all these years and I have the same equine vet so my horses have really good care. I am very thankful that I can give my horses the best I can provide. Again Deacon started this journey for me and I have learned so much. I have learned how to pick hooves, clean sheaths, scoop poop, bath them from head to hoof, load, doctor eyes and cuts…and the list goes on! I have read and studied so much as well. The journey with the horses never ends and you can always learn more. I am off work tomorrow so I will phone vote as many as possible. There is a 20% chance of rain so I’m not sure if I will get to ride. I do have to run and pick up feed and stop by the grocery store, maybe a little final Christmas shopping. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ♡

Thank you for the get well wishes. I never get sick, but when I do, blech. Lol. Hoping everyone who's under the weather, is feeling better, soon, too...... I did manager a short ride on Sadie, Wednesday. What an amazing feeling to be in the saddle! I forgot about being sick. A friend, who's an experienced rider, came out and rode her, too. I said professional rider, on facebook, because if you have a horse, everyone wants to bring their kids out to ride. Sadie needs work. Not risking accidents.... Stephanie rode Sadie out front. She was amazing. She trotted, cantered and was so good, until she got spooked. She was nervy, possibly coyotes. There's a large den nearby. She bucked hard, and Stephanie hit the ground. She said she was fine, got back on and rode her for a few minutes more. She said she and Sadie need to get to know one another. I'm thinking that's true. Sadie's good with me, but she loves me. She'd better. Lol. Leaving love and a vote.

♡ Oh the joy of shopping for our horses-it is too much fun. Once you get the saddle that fits your horse and you, you must then buy saddle pads and bridles and reins and halters and all things to match, to include YOU! Next I had to have the right pants (the right length), boots, shirts and of course my cowgirl hat! Now I had to shop for another horse for Cliff! What fun the horsey world is. I did find another horse but it wasn’t the right one for him. I sold him and Cliff found Rocket. What a match. He and Deacon got along so well. Then it was time to shop for Rocket!!!

Hi Pippin, here's a vote for ya. What a nasty day out there today! Started during the night with sleet, then freezing rain, woke up to a nice layer of ice to walk on to get to the barn and feed. By noon it was about 36 and melting, good thing, cause I had to get miss antsy pants to the indoor for some exercise. Got that done and then ran downtown to get my script of allergy meds. I have them 24/7 365 days a year. Roads were good by 1:30 when i left for the store. Didn't do much more than lunge Paige and do mid-day stalls and hayed and watered them before leaving. We got about 2 inches of rain throughout the day. And now tonight, they are saying 1 to 3 inches of snow! Yep, gotta love the weather! NOT! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

about the Horse of The Week badge.. I also some some other badges that you have that I've never heard about.. I guess those are badges that aren't given to anyone anymore too.
I just looked at your other pictures of Pippin. He does remind me of Eli so much.. Eli also likes to nip at some people.. it seems like I'm the only one he can trust. He's never tried to bite me. His ears he doesn't like to be touched, but he left me fix his halter which slipped over his one ear yesterday. My dad left his halter on him because it's VERY hard to catch him.. I feel bad for the farrier also when he comes because he has to chase him down if he doesn't have his halter on..

Come visit me, Cinnamon & Eli.

♥ I know you all know and will relate to today’s information. I bought a saddle before I bought Deacon. It was a nice roping saddle which is not good for long trail rides. It was a little heavier then I wanted but like I said it was nice. It fit Deacon ok but I had to go (ha ha-just wanted too!)buy one that I had fit for him. I ended up with a Circle Y Flex 2 Topeka trail saddle, man is it lite and comfortable-best decision I ever made! Have a wonderful day :)

Thank you soooo MUCH :)
♥ The first 2 years I had Deacon I kept him at a barn 18 miles from me and I didn’t have a trailer at first. So my friends would haul me around to ride. We bought a 2 horse trailer a year later and soon after we bought a 3 horse gooseneck stock trailer. I use to bring a tent and my horse in my 2 horse trailer to camp out! Lol What fun I had and what a wonderful horsey journey I have been on every sense the day I laid eyes on (NEW NICKNAME) Mr. Eyeliner!!! Cliff always says he has eyeliner around his eyes and Allie’s mom started putting “Mr.” in front of it and I think that is so cute! I won’t be around a computer the weekend…I will try and phone vote some. Please continue to support my Deacon! Thank you so much!

♡ after my kids got to be 15 and 16 (2008) we had a family talk about them getting new computers or me getting a horse. We agreed that I had gone long enough without having a horse! So a friend of mine that trail rides all the time helped me to find a good gentle gelding. She introduced me to Deacons owner/trainer Bill and I fell in love the moment I saw Deacon.. I know I got a late start but better late than never. On my days off work I will try to phone vote folks but please stop and vote Deacon even if I can’t get to everyone.
