My Horse Profile

Miniature Horse from E, CA

Pippin (Remembering Melian)

About Me

Active within 38 Days

I am from E, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 8 years, 10 months and 25 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.

Happy Wednesday
Well, I'm so sorry if I didn't get to blog/vote for you. My computer quit working again. And the Internet was slower than molasses. But here is your vote!
The trap was yet again empty. I think they are too smart... Anyway. We are not working out there today. We will be going to someone's house and digging up a t-pole. We'll be needing it for our place. We still have one more pile of trees to burn, was just too windy yesterday. It was sunny all day yesterday until 2 pm. It was amazing! We could see thick clouds rolling in over the sky and the temp dropped drastically. It was great outside! Took my little Ammo chihuahua for a long walk. He enjoyed it. Plan to groom Darby today, ride if Inam able, we'll see. I thank you all for your support through this month, you have been awesome! Love to all, best wishes, Love-Lindsay & Darby

Happy Monday Morning Votes
Leaving y'all a cold morning vote. Wasn't low enough to blanket the horses, though. At our land we got a lot done yesterday. Finished up the tree line, drug to a pile and set it a blaze. It was sweet to watch. We poured gasoline on the trees and... boom. It caught and lit so fast. My dad is welding on our entry gate. We already set pipes in the ground and he was welding onto them to make a pipe fence. He and my brother also made a gate out of welding pipes together. It looks great! Before we left last night, I set a small trap. Now, we are going back out there today. So I hope I caught a raccoon or a rabbit. I plan to shoot it and make a coon hat. Which I researched how exactly and it's very hard. You have to use the coon's brain oil to rub the skin so it won't got stiff. So, I hope that works. Our new place has some wooded areas, we saw tracks nearby the place that the trap is set, too. I can almost bet I'll have something. Weather wasn't too bad yesterday, no wind so that was a big plus. The metal sheets we unloaded are extras, we will probably be needing them when we build our goat barns. And our chicken coop houses. We might also use them to skin our house, not sure yet. It was just a thought out loud. We just got them at a really great price so we stocked up. It sure doesn't feel like it's November already. The teps match, but it seems like it was just summer. Well we are nearing December. The end of my HOTM run. I am gonna be up all night, checking after midnight to see. We appreciate all the meaningful votes!!! Love Lindsay & Darby! We love ya HC buddies! Wishing you all a blessed beginning of the week!

I don't like winter
Well, it's official, I am no longer a fan of the cold. I want spring. But, there is nothing like a hot cup of coffee on those 'stay inside cold' days. That's a plus about winter, I guess. We unloaded A LOT metal sheets yesterday at the land. It was hard, because we had to do one by one. The wind nearly caught them too, but nothing happened, luckily. That's all us girls had to do. Me, my sister and my mom went back to our rent house and did stuff while my brother and dad welded at the land. There was just nothing for us to do. But today we'll be finishing up that trimming of the cedar trees and doing something with cement. I did get a little time with Darby yesterday evening. I groomed him and put on his blanket. Got down to 27 degrees last night, oh and I can tell. I hate that feeling in your hands and feet when they go numb from the cold. Anyway, we're happy with the progress on everything. I counted my votes this morning and this is what we're at: 324 so far. Thank you very much you guys! I hope you have a great Sunday, and stay warm! Love and a vote!

Very cold this morning, well, at least for us it's cold. Like I said, 30 degrees. The wind is really kicking it, too. We got a lot of the tree trimming done yesterday, today we just have a little bit more. It wasn't that hard, I thought it would have been more difficult. But my brother was attacking the limb with our pole saw, while me, my sister and my mom were dragging them away into piles. Looks like we;re have a big bonfire soon, we'll cook some s'mores and sit around it. Cedar- that's the type of wood we're cutting- burns fast and hot. I plan to groom Darby again today,hope I have some time. We're going out to the land again. Well, I told you all about my little dog Ammo. He is sitting on my lap as I type this blog. Every time I sit down he's like a magnet to me. Big dogs are so much easier. My brother has four German Shepherd dogs, but they do bark a lot. But at least they can stay outside. Nearing the final days of this month, my fingers will be crossed until the first day of December! Thank you very much!!! Sending you thanks, love and a windy vote! Love- Lindsay & Darby

Missing you..
As we approach winter, I worry about my, Grand Old Lady, her Cushings is acting up AGAIN, same symptoms as early spring, so I'm thinking this has to do with the weather change. I have of course discussed this with Dr. C and he has made some adjustments in her meds. She had what I call a "spell" the other day, in her stall she had a small panic attack, it was as if she was not sure where she was, did not recognize her surroundings or me. It lasted for a couple of minutes and she was quite agitated. I read an interesting article on Equine Dementia, after all she is 32. Have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

Vote for Handsome Pippin
We'll be able to work this weekend...
Well, it may be very wet, but we can work on the land. My dad will be welding the entry while we trim trees. A lot of trees, it's for the electric I think. We've got about 900 feet to trim, so that's gonna be more than a one day deal. I have also decided to re-home one of my pets. "Ammo" he is my 4 pound chihuahua. I've had him for over a year, and he's a lot of work. Taking him outside, he always wants to be on my lap. It's so annoying. But he's gonna have a good home. My grandma is a dog lover and she wants him. So I'll be able to see him several times a year. So, that worked out good. And, yesterday I gave Darbs a grooming. He was dirty, and he had burs stuck in his mane and tail. His hooves were all soggy too, you know when hooves are too wet, it's starts peeling white. So, no rainmaker for a good while. Down to the last eight days of my HOTM run. Woo, getting close! We appreciate all the kind encouraging words and votes! Have a blessed Friday, almost the weekend, day! Love to all

I need to set a schedule with the farrier. It's a very busy time of year for him. When I was young, Daddy use to trim mine and my sister's horses' hooves. Never had to call on anyone. Still learning new things......I've got a lot of extra hours at work next week. With Thanksgiving, next Thursday, it's going to be busy. I'm scheduled for 3 to close that day. I go in earlier a couple of days, too. I'll be on HC as much as possible. Love to each of you and a vote. <3

Freezing Temps soon!
Leaving you a happy Thursday vote. Well, we are going to get a taste of winter Saturday night. The weather shows 30 degrees, and that's cold for us. I do miss summer, a bit. But overall, I'm more of a cold fan, I know I'm crazy. Well, yesterday evening I groomed Darby while he at his diner. We feed them three times a day, breakfast is a flake of hay each, lunch in a scoop-or more- of their gran, and dinner is another round of hay. Copper is a little thin, so we're trying to get him good for winter. We're on day 19, it's intense pressure. Wondering if your going to win or loose. Makes me anxious! But whatever happens, I'm thankful to every single one of you. Voted and blogged for my Darby. Yall are so awesome. I hope you have a fantastic Thursday. Love to all!

Trotting by with a muddy morning vote! Stormy last night through this morning. Woke up to no power, but now it clicked back on. So, that's good news. The news says high winds and possible tornados for last night, luckily we didn't get any. Only a little rotation in the sky, but that's all. It's suppose to drop 15 degrees after this storm passed through. Brrr, but I like the cold. Sometimes. Thank you for you support! Lucky to call you a friend. Hope you have a most wonderful day!

Galloping by with a vote for you. We have made progress on our land! My dad had one side welded with top rails and trimmed now. All the grade work is coming along great! We're gonna build a frame house. Not sure what color yet, that's the fun part. We are for sure tilling up a big arena and a dirt bike track in the front. Well, I got a bareback ride in on Darbs yesterday evening. He was acting a little disrespectful, because I have taken some time off. But he actually did better than I thought. It was cool out while I rode, my hands were frozen. My sister rode with me too. We groomed the boys afterward. Darby loves grooming, it's so cute how he falls asleep. I hope you had some time with your fuzzy, four legged friend. An update on my HOTM run: 228 votes as of right now. I can't say thank you enough. Love to all mt buddies!!!

Sunday Votes!
Here's an early Sunday morning vote. It was a little cool out yesterday, stayed like that pretty much all day. We worked on our land all day. My brother was busy spreading gravel for our road, which that's all done now. Me, my sister and my mom and dad were setting poles up front for our entry gate. They are all set in cement now. We also dug the holes using the tractor. It got stuck a lot, because the clay mud. But we got it out. I also rode my dirt bike a lot of the time. We have 17 acres, so it's really fun. Rode our 4 wheeler too. You could sure feel the temp drop as the night got closer. Man, riding into the cold wind was frigid. I had gloves on but they were still numb. Well, we're going out there today again too. Taking advantage of this dry weather. We'll be welding pipe onto the poles and stuff like that. Thank you so much for your votes. We're halfway there! Love to all!

Sorry if didn't blog or vote you yesterday. My computer was down and when I went to do it on my phone, it quit too. Yesterday was beautiful, perfect fall temps. Just a light jacket weather. It's about fully dry out here, so that's great. Let's just hope we don't get anymore late Sunday or Monday. We're going to wok o our land today. The rain has been a burden, since we're still working on getting a driveway out there. We got stuck a couple of times, luckily we have a tractor to pull out and 4 wheel drive. But it sure leaves big ruts. Hope your doing well! Thank you for the HOTM support! Votes and kind comments, thank you!!! Best wishes, have a great day!

We just got a little sprinkle of rain yesterday, but that was all. Though, you could see storms surrounding us. It was pretty amazing. Lightning in a pink-ish cloud, that one was fascinating. Darby is doing good. For two whole days he's remained clean, I'm thrilled! We are going out to our land today. We are having road base dumped -4 loads= and my brother is going to spread it out with our tractor. So, hopefully no more rain so we can work. We are most likely gonna have a red barn put together, the ones that you put panels in yourself. So, we think that's the best buy for us. We've gotten 174 votes so far. I think we're doing well.

Loping by with some Tuesday morning votes. A bit earlier than usual. I'm always up early, so it's just me and my computer. Hope everyone had a great Monday. Yesterday I didn't get to ride, but I may today. Darby stayed clean, well sort of. He still has some mud on him, but not totally covering him. There is a chance of rain this week, but it may miss us. So I'm praying it moves on past. I was thinking about dressing Darby up for Christmas. I know it's like 40 something days away, but I thank I just might. I think it'll be a blast! Of course, if I do I'll post pics. Darby's is growing a tiny winter coat, not too fuzzy and shaggy yet. But soon. I love horse's winter coats, they are just so cute. But the summer sleek coats are so beautiful. Especially the shiny ones. I'm very please with our HOTM run as of today. We've received over 135 votes. I'm lucky to have such loyal pals! You guys are the best! Love Lindsay & Darby!!! Best wishes

Sore muscles. Austin and I took a broken corral panel down. Made Sadie's corral a little smaller. She still has a lot of room.

Again, it's chilly this Monday morning. Yesterday I gave Darby a good brush down. It took a while, that's for sure. But it was fun, I just grab my brushes and hoof pick, sing my favorite songs and get to work. I think I might have found a great riding spot! I was riding our 4 wheeler and suddenly realized that the path I was riding on could work for horses. So, yay!!! Next Sunday is suppose to be colder than usual. High thirties in the am and low fifties in the pm. So, I was working on getting better pics of me jumping. But the computer that its on is packed in one of our storage containers... at our land. So... I will just have to wait until we find that one box. Darby likes this cooler weather, he's more frisky! I bet if I ride today he'll have some act-up moments. But, I'm still hoping he will behave. We're doing great on our votes so far. Thank you very much... we're really working hard for this win! Leaving you a tap on your horseshoe to start off your week.

Happy Sunday!!!
Leaving cold Sunday morning votes. Skies are really pretty this morning, as the sun is rising. Pink, mostly, but what a work of art? Darby got all muddy again, last night I saw him and... I just gotta say I've got some work to do today. Still no riding, still wet and gross out. In the horse pasture there are so many holes, from all the hoof prints. So far we've gotten 118 votes. Thank you all, it means so much!

I'll tell you all a little bit about Darby's past... of what I know. Once the lady arrived at our place she told us about Darby. She said she rescued him from this lady who rode and did english with him. I'm not sure if she even rode him western. Amy (the lady we bought him from) said he was skin and bones. That made me really sad. Amy said the lady didn't abuse him but she didn't feed him. Amy owned Darby for a year (i think) and she slowly got him to a good weight. You know, it takes a long time to put weight on a horse. Darby is always rushing and pushy around his food, so maybe that's why he is. He's afraid he wont get enough. Amy said he would be a great barrel horse, but actually he's more of an english horse. I know Amy said he was 12 years old, but the vet told us he is 17-19. I went with the younger, of course. I'm so glad to have my boy, he's such a blessing. Love to all*
