My Horse Profile

Miniature Horse from Etna, CA

Pippin (Remembering Melian)

About Me

Active within 281 Days

I am from Etna, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 10 years, 9 months and 15 days

Nicknames: Lost Spoke's Winter Bay Mist

Age: 12 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.

How We Met

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

Long Time No See!!
Hello from wet cold Illinois!
I know it's been a loooong time since I've been on horse channel; you probably don't even remember me hahaha. I've missed Pippin and Eddie (I'm sorry about his passing) and all my other HC friends.
Luna and I have been doing fine, plus, I have happy news: this past summer I got another horse! Her name is Allie and I adopted her from my boarding stable when they retired her as a lesson horse. She's mostly just a pasture pet, but I take her out for a short trail ride 2 or 3 times a month.
It's full on pouring down rain here right now, so no riding for me, but I still had to tend to Allie's fetlock. She got kicked or caught in a fence or some other nonsense, and has a gash right on the joint. It's not affecting the way she moves and doesn't seem to cause pain, but it's fairly ugly and it's not healing. I'm thinking it may turn into proudflesh.
Luna, on the other hand, is enjoying her day off. I think she actually likes the rain. Maybe it makes the grass taste sweeter!
Right now I'm just waiting for the rain to stop!!
I left you a vote, so have a horsey day!
---Allie, ~Luna~, and me Cindy

Come visit me, Allie & ~Luna~.

Thank you all for the support. Still trying to process the fact that my cousin has died. He's a big part of my childhood memories and is forever in my heart. No greater friends than HC friends. Sadie's good. She was so full of spit and vinegar the other night. She's forever in my heart, too. My car's ac is awesome. If my dash lights worked, I'd feel rich. Lol. Probably a short in the wiring. Love to all of you and a vote.

I've got so much going on, it's not easy to be on HC everyday. My cousin died Sunday morning. Still too much to process. Not going, because the service is in S.C and the burial in Georgia. I did send flowers to the funeral home, then called to make sure they got there. Been in touch with my aunt and brother. My car is in the shop. Should be ready Thursday. Hot weather is on it's way and that ac is gold. Love and votes. Prayers, too.

$600 plus whatever it cost to replace the control panel for my car's ac. Compressor's leaking. Rick won't agree to a new fence. We're going to have to patch what's left of the one we have. For now, Scruffy's chained during the day and inside at night. Leaving love to all and a vote.

Very busy work weekend. I had to pick Scruffy up from Animal control in Phoenix, today. He was somehow picked up by the police about 20 miles, or so, away. Too hot for him to walk that far. I borrowed Austin car, because the ac in my car isn't working. Hope all are well. Love and a vote.

So much going on. 3 family members have terminal cancer, my mom has alzheimer's, dementia and Parkinson's disease, and with other issues, I haven't felt much like being on HC or Facebook. I leave for Minnesota on the 21st of June. Got that week off approved at work. Now, I'm waiting to hear about the 5th of July through the 17th. I put in for those days to drive to Nevada to see my son and his family, then bring my grandsons home with me for a week's visit. I'm so excited about them moving back to the States and being closer to me. Already planning my first Christmas with them. So wonderful to have something so wonderful to look forward to. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

I'm sometimes up until 5 am. Going to eventually get my sleeping hours straightened out. Always been a night owl. Love not having to get up early. It's my oldest son's 41 st birthday, today. How the time has flown by. Love and a vote.

I think being up at night takes a toll. My work shifts are sometimes 8 hours long with no breaks. Doesn't bother me. I think sitting down for too long and allowing myself to be lazy, feels too good. Looking forward to retiring in 100 years. Lol. Love and a vote.

No horsey time. I'm tired on my days off. I'm taking several vitamin supplements, but after working, I'm lazy on my days off. Got chores to catch up on, too. I said I want to retire at 62 and live comfortable one week out of the month. Trips I have to take, so I'll keep working. My uncle in Minnesota has terminal cancer. Saving up for a flight to visit him. Will be taking trips to Las Vegas to visit my son and his family. Eric got orders for Nellis AFB. I'm soooo happy! I haven't seen my grandsons in 6 years. This Christmas will be my first one with them. God answered my prayers and is sending them close to me. Sadie's doing good. Just love her. Love and a vote.

I went to Tractor Supply, yesterday, because I needed more Freedom 45. They were out, so I bought Celebration Spot On. Don't think it's working well, because Sadie's swinging her tail around like a fan. The flies are pathetic this year. Equine fly spray doesn't help. The vaseline is helping Sissy. Just messy. Bought 2 fly trap bags. Putting those out, today. Dang egg ranch. Love and a vote.

The vaseline helps on Sissy's ears. I put some on Scruffy's nose, because the flies have been attacking him, too. In the 90's. Going to be turning on Scruffy's ac, soon, and hoping he and Sissy will be nice and share the doghouse. Need to build a new doghouse, too. but will patch this one for now. Love to all and a vote.

Windy, but beautiful weather. The flies are horrible. They're chewing the tips of Sissy's ears up. I'm keeping her in during the day, as much as possible. Wondering if vaseline would stop that. Surprised at how much alfalfa pellets swell when soaked. I'd given Sadie pellets without soaking them. Never, again! Still learning. Leaving lots of love and a vote.
