My Horse Profile

Miniature Horse from E, CA

Pippin (Remembering Melian)

About Me

Active within 18 Days

I am from E, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 8 years, 5 months and 27 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.

Susie Dell Meyers is a AQHA registered quarter horse. She was born on March 15, 2001. She was only 5 years old when we purchased her. She is out of the Poco Bueno bloodline. My daughter was all excited when she got her horse. She purchased all the necessary equipment and supplies. My husband was teaching her how to ride and care for the horse. My husband owned horses before when he was young and later during his previous marriage, his children had horses. Well probably no more than six months down the road, my daughter figured out there was a lot more to horses than just riding them. She gave up on the owning a horse idea. This is how I became involved with Susie.

Happy 4th of July!!!
Leaving a cool early morning vote. I plan to groundwork him this morning, maybe lunging on his right side a lot will get him use to his right lead? I hope so! His mark is getting better, should be able to ride in a few days. Darbs is usually scared of fireworks, last time we had them he and Copper were running around the pasture. Hopefully he is better with them tonight.
Best wishes for you to have a great & fun day!

Let’s begin where it all started. I have never been involved with horses before. The closes I’ve been to a horse was when I was young, my cousins in Kenner had a horse. I rode on the back of it once or twice. Then in my later years, my sister got a horse. We were both married with children by then. I was in my late 40’s when I got Susie. Although Susie was not my horse. She was purchased for my daughter. My husband purchased Susie on June 9, 2006, because my daughter had been on a trail ride with some friends and decided that she wanted a horse. We saw an ad in a Quick Quarter, a weekly advertisement. So we went to take a look.~~~

Have a happy 4th of July weekend! Left a vote.

Sadie's mister came a day early. Austin and I put it up. Somehow, one of the heads got stripped. Instead of sending it back, I'm going to seal it off. The rest of the heads work great. Sadie enjoyed spending time with us. She was so cute watching Austin. Easily entertained. Lol. Love and a vote.

Hi Cute Pippin
Trotting by with some hot votes! Another summer day here in Texas, very hot! Well yesterday's ride went well, we worked on some great bending exercises. He is very good at them, also worked on one rein stops. After my ride yesterday morning while I un tacked him I noticed that he had gotten a cinch mark. So I've been applying vetericyn on it, today I just did ground work. He did good, he seems to not like to pick up his right lead. Like it's un natural for him to lope on that side or something. But I got him to do a full circle without trotting.
Hope all is well, best wishes and stay cool!!!

This run for HOTM is going to be for Susie. She deserves the recognition since my world of horses all started with her. Without her I would not have known the joy and the beauty of horses. So the next 30 days I will tell her story.

GOOD MORNING!
Galloping by with some Monday morning votes.
I rode Darby yesterday morning and this morning. We practiced barrels, he did great. It surprised me, since we have not done them in a while. I only trotted the pattern, but loped home a couple times. He seems to take a while to pick up a lope coming home. That's what he needs work on, but the turns are pretty tight. Hoping to lope in between the barrels soon! I plan to ride again tomorrow.
Best wishes!

We received 1 ¾” of rain last night-the wind was unbelievable!!! I had to go and get feed and grocery’s yesterday and by the time we were finished it was too hot to ride. I did get fly stuff on the boys and checked the fly mask and then just watched them graze for the evening! Working the weekend but will try to do something with them after work but it will be to muddy to ride. Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed!
*TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.

Hey Pippin
Dropping off a Friday morning vote, the farrier for Darby is coming Saturday. I have been holding off on riding due to his long hooves. Do you do the flying lead change? Or come down to a trot before? I'm having trouble with the flying lead change, I don't think he knows hot to do it.
He has got beautiful tight turn though, when I felt him turn a barrel once at a trot I just knew he could be a great barrel racer. That's what the lady I bought him from said too, she use to ride barrels on him. Well hope your day goes well, best wishes!

* In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.

Stopping by with cool morning a tap on your horseshoe. Arena is drying out nicely, hope to ride soon. I hope your week is going good, with sunshine and hopefully horsey time. Over all weather is super hot here during the days, summer has really kicked in! Darby is great, he loves his new treats! It's some alfalfa hay that I give him a handful every once in a while. He eats it up and wants more! Well have a wonderful blessed Wednesday, love to all and best wishes!!!

Sadie has a shade. I wanted to put the tarp up, for more shade. Rick's using it, though. The heat doesn't seem to bother her. She stands in the sun a lot. She is enjoying that mister, though. She backs her butt up to it and stands there. Love and a vote.

Stopping in to say Hello! It's been a while. Hope all is well with you.~~~~

Having some beautiful weather for a change. I'm on vacation this week. Tomorrow I plan on mowing grass at the pasture and giving the herd a bath. Yesterday we watched and assisted a young female vet castrate a eight year old stud. The stud is kept right down the road from our pasture. A guy just purchased him and he was used for breeding before. We wanted to make sure he was cut...don't need any surprises with our two mares. lol Here's a vote for you.

This heat. Living in the desert, it's expected, but geez! Lol. Scruffy's ac is on, from early morning, until late at night. I filled 2 water bowls for him. Sadie's mister is on and staying on. She backs her butt up to it and loves it. Suppose to reach 115* today. I need to put the tarp up, on her shade, to help keep the sun off of her. She hates it, because it flaps when the wind blows, but shade is shade. Hoping you're all staying dry and cool. Love always and a vote.

Got a short shower this morning, hope no more comes. I was planning on doing ground work with Darby. I'm working on his behavior on top, then I'm going to start teaching him barrel racing.

Whiskey’s mane & tail change colors several times in the year by going lighter then darker. His body color changes as well. He truly loves his bath time and grooming, he trailers well in any type I load him in, and will load without heisting at all. He is also my bareback horse. Perfect back for it so if I don’t feel like putting the saddle on I can always just get myself up on him and go at any time. He is the type that will come to you every time from the field or anywhere. I guess that’s the treat hound in him lol.
* The Rocky Mountain Horse breed originated in the United States in the late 1800s, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky. At the time of its beginnings, there was no understanding of the need to document anything about these horses. The people living in this region were quite unaware that one day their utility horses would become the foundation of a special breed of horse. The existence of these horses was practically a secret for many years to all but the inhabitants of this region.
