My Horse Profile

Miniature Horse from E, CA

Pippin (Remembering Melian)

About Me

Active within 61 Days

I am from E, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 7 years, 3 months and 8 days

Nicknames: Lost Spoke's Winter Bay Mist

Age: 8 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

he thinks food is in every bucket in the world =)
The 1st few times I rode Whiskey my arms were wore out and tired. I was thinking “man what in the world”. He did not and could not Neck rein. He was very hard in the mouth, no flex in his neck but Karla & Tim told me he needed that kind of work. Tim felt he didn’t ride him in collection and so on. He was Tim’s first horse. We would get under the canopy of the trees on the trails and he would do great with my seat aids which I was happy about. That is how I ride him, with my seat and leg aids. I guess we all are supposed to do that RIGHT!!!! I then started planning my next few months of teaching him to neck rein. I just went back to the beginning and put him in an “O” ring snaffle and took it from there. Every day his personality would shine and he entertained Cliff & me with his antics! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

you little devil you-just love ya!

Finally that Saturday morning rolled around. I could hardly sleep the night before. Everything was running threw my head about what I was going need and about if I had everything ready for his arrival to our place. I kept thinking about how alpha Deacon was and how they would get along. After all they have road a thousand miles of trails together. . The more I thought, the more I felt like after the ride we would come on home instead of camping. I wanted to get him home and on our property to make this dream come true for me. I had never rode Whiskey until the day I bought him, can you believe that!!! It did not matter to me how he rode at all, I wanted him and that was that! We had a nice ride that day and came on home. Cliff broke out his tools and started working around the barn. Today’s picture is of Whiskey’s first comedy show for us. He said (ha ha) “Dad, I can bring this orange Home Depot bucket to ya, I know it has feed in it for me!” Enjoy! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

little nip Pip, be nice!
is that the pony in him or the stud part that makes him do that? lol

We left off Friday about the phone call to buy Whiskey! The arrangement was made for us to meet that weekend and Whiskey would be mine. The next few days were like a life time to me. I had put in a vacation day for that Friday because I knew I couldn’t concentrate and I wanted to get everything ready for the trail ride …I mainly wanted to get everything ready for his new home with us. Cliff was putting in our stalls at the time. I came home the day Karla called and talked with Cliff of course. Like I said he wasn’t working but he was working at our place (love cheap labor) lol. That next day after work I came home and he had added the 3rd stall, I started to cry of course because I knew he understood how badly I wanted Whiskey. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

I lunged Spangle yesterday. We worked on walk/lope transitions. He did well.

I rode Rose bareback during dusk/after dark. We lope a little while it still had a little light:) At the end I just laid on Rose. She started falling asleep:) It was a really fun ride:)

you will get the next milestone I bet!!!
Today’s picture is the picture Karla was going to post on craigslist & the first picture I ever had of Whiskey of my own until he became mine. When I speak of Whiskey my heart totally melts. I can get side tracked easily talking about him…so needless to say, we rode many times and camped a many a night. SO nearly 6 or 7 months later I received a call at work and it was Karla. My heart sunk, I knew she was going to say Whiskey was for sale. At that time Cliff was out of work (construction-you probably know how that goes) I was scared to ask how much they were asking. She told me what they were going to post him for on craigslist and I knew I could not afford that price. I told Karla I could not pay that price but to wait and not post until I could try a few options. She said right then that “sense you are a friend and we know how much you want and love him here is what we will sale him to you for”!!! It was like-woohoooooo! It was a price I could actually afford (not really but hey). I will get as many phone votes in over the weekend as I possibly can, mainly Sunday but will try to get some on Saturday; I will catch you up on Monday! Riding at Lake Whitney Saturday& will meet Cheryl and Cisco!!
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Good morning =)
As we ate lunch and rested, Whiskey walked over to me several times. He would nuzzle my hand (at the time I didn’t know he was a treat hound) and I felt as if we bonded and we were linked in some way. I told Karla right then and there that if they ever sold Whiskey to please contact me first. He has marbling on his lower legs that are silver, chocolate and nearly liver color (see his profile picture for today). It amazes me to still look at how he is marked; he is just absolutely beautiful-but I’m parcel!!! He is our escape artist, the one that can get into or out of ANYTHING; such a smarty pants and a treat hound lol. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Whiskey says Thank You for your support!
Monday we left off about Whiskey’s color and me with 5 hundred questions for Karla! Here we go…That poor girl had never met me before and I could not shut up :) I then walked over and looked Whiskey right in the eye and he looked back into mine and my heart sunk. His beauty was striking and the color was outstanding. He had a smart, sharpness about him-I’m sure he was thinking “what in the world is she doing”. The ride finally got underway; usually everyone has me ride out front and calls me the trail boss! Deacon is a faster walking horse but can ride in the middle or behind after the first hour or so. Well, here comes Rio & Whiskey with their smooth selves!!! They just gaited their smooth self’s right past me & Deacy. I watched Whiskey and noticed he didn’t quite move the same as Rio but still a difference from a QH. 2 hours into the ride we decided to rest a few minutes in a place we call “Carol’s lounge”. We have names for all our spots we ride to rest or to take a break out there because it’s so big. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Now were into “Whiskey’s” story really good! I finished getting Deacon ready for our all day ride. We always pack drinks and hotlinks or some sort of sausage/lunch meat for lunch. Bill got a call that they were pulling in and asked us to wait a few minutes before heading out. I guess we had about 8 riders starting out then Karla & Tim made 10-oh what fun! They pulled in and parked and they started to unload the horses and of course I was already curious. Out came this Smokey chocolate colored horse, smaller built and my jaw dropped open in awe….Her horse Rio changes colors as all Rocky’s do throughout the year so he had almost a buckskin color but he is what they call a chocolate color. Then out comes Tim & Whiskey~~~~OMG I thought I would faint…..I was speechless….I had never seen a horse look like that nor that color…I went over to Karla and started all the questions and she explained that Whiskey’s color is called “Red Chocolate”. To be continued Wednesday, phone votes tomorrow =) Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Whiskey thanks you for your support!
In 2008 the decision was made after a talk with our boy’s and Cliff. It was time for me to get back on my horse journey. I purchased Deacon in March 23, 2008 and then bought Whiskey in May 2010. When I run Deacon I will tell more about the 1st 2 years back on my journey. Now that you have some back ground on me and my journey I will start Whiskey’s story with me. As many of you know I trail ride and use to camp with the horses all the time, now we just day ride. Hoping this spring sometime to camp again-fingers crossed =) It has been 2 years sense we have camped out with them. We would camp at Mccown or Plowman Valley at Lake Whitney Texas or at Reynolds Creek Lake Waco, Texas. During those times I have met a lot of people and their different type of horses. On one Oct. weekend we had some friends of Bill’s that was coming that I had never met. I asked Bill as we all were getting our horses ready for our ride that day, what type horses did these friends have? He said Rocky Mountain horses…I said hummmm, never heard of that breed. The thoughts in my head about this breed had me so curious. Now tomorrow we are into his story fully….hang in there! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

We've had a few days up into the 80s, so my niece clipped Cinni's long hair under her neck, chest, and belly, and then braided her mane. What do you know, there's a pony under all that hair! Cute.

Early year’s cont. My brother-n-law took Tawny for me and kept her until she passed away in 2002. 2 years after the kick in the back I was brave enough to buy this smaller paint- Welsh mix. She was a beautiful tri-colored paint her name was Kallie. She was gentle and slower moving. She was fat of course ha ha. I didn’t have everything I needed (trailer, truck and knowledge). I had the property and a neighbor that would help me out. She had a quarter horse & we would ride the country side all around our properties. I had hoped to do more and learn more with horses but I was young and full of myself! Anyway, I then met someone and started dating and from there I got out of horses. That was about April 1991 when I sold Kallie. Then came along the start of my family in Nov 1992! The rest of our story will be of this last 7 years that I have had Deacon, Whiskey & Rocket (Rocket is Cliff’s horse). Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Our internet was out for a couple days so I wasn't able to get on HC. We got a foot of snow last night but it was so warm today that there's just a couple inches left. Its really, really muddy now. Dakota has been doing awesome with his cart training. I have been walking beside him, driving him and pulling the cart behind him. It is right where it would be if he were pulling it and all the rattling doesn't bother him anymore. We are working on large circles to get him used to turning with it. He should be ready to pull it soon! I rode Misty last week, she did good for not being ridden for a while. I want to ride her more but the pasture and fields are just way to muddy. I can still ride Cherokee on the gravel roads though.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

hope you're sinuses are improving.

I ordered the walter Farley children's book, "little Black: a Pony" since godiva was named little black when I bought her. it was the fave story of the lady I bought her from and i'd somehow missed it as a kid. godiva sure does look exactly like the illustrations! got my water rake and tried it out finally. it's a wand that concentrates a line of water streams. I held it over peach's top line and ran it down her back like a "car wash"! she looks clean now! even got a lot of the caked on clay off her fetlocks. more rain on the way so she may not stay clean. got a wool saddle pad for my aussie saddle and tried it out on smooch today. my other pads were all to small so it's nice to have one that fits it finally. :)

It rained Wednesday. Came down hard for a couple of minutes, then tapered off. I let Sadie out of her corral. When I opened the gate, she bolted out like a racehorse. She ran, kicked and reared. Scruffy chased her, happy to play, until she turned in his direction. He ran over to me. Lol. She's still out, enjoying her freedom. Will put her up Thursday night. Love and a vote.

Hi Pippin, here's a vote for ya. Thank you to everyone who supported me on my Run for HOTM! We did it with well over 925 votes and the help of our wonderful furfriends on DC too! Paige and I love ya'all very much! Well it turned into a sunny 60 degrees and we're lovin' it! Worked Paige outside at our trainers and Marissa rode her outside too. The arena is heavier in sand and she'd tired a little faster, but she did very well. Sights and sounds of trucks and all the outside horses didn't phase her. Very happy day. Indy and Bullseye got extra hay when I left, had grocery shopping to do on the way home. Was running extremely late! Once again, thanks for all the support for Paige. Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: "Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn." (Quoted by Lewis Grizzard in Kathy Sue Loudermilk, I Love You)

Happy Spring vote for you. We are glad Spring is finally here!

I took Fancy out so Fatima could eat in peace and what would you think! Fatima did not think to take advantage of the peaceful time she had to eat. She cried for Fancy. So did Trigger! What gives? Fancy bosses Trigger and Fatima and she makes sure they both get plenty of exercise by chasing them around. Why do they cry for her when I take her out???

I imagine you have seen this same behavior. Horses just do not think like we do.

Have a blessed and pleasant night
