My Horse Profile

Miniature Horse from Etna, CA

Pippin (Remembering Melian)

About Me

Active within 13 Days

I am from Etna, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 10 years and 17 days

Nicknames: Lost Spoke's Winter Bay Mist

Age: 11 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

So sorry I haven't been on. I worked Friday night, had a long shift Saturday night and took Sunday off. Even though I don't believe in getting up before noon, I worked late Saturday night, went by the store, then made it home close to 1 am, finally made it to bed just before 3 am and was up around 8 am, on Sunday morning, for church. A friend came over after church to do some annual maintenance on the ac to the house. Cool and breezy here. Lots of snow in Northern Arizona. More of that dang rain is predicted for Monday. Tornadoes back home in Georgia. And Sadie's good. She's roaming free outside of the corral. Hoping to get her butt put back up, soon. Just has to stop raining and dry up some. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Come visit me, SADIE.

A heavy rain storm is predicted for Thursday through Saturday. My hay shed's developed a leak, so I put a tarp over the roof of it. I hope there aren't any winds. Going to pick up an extra corral panel, or 2, when I can. At least Sadie will be happy. She'll get to roam the back of the property. Have and awesome day. Love and a vote.

It didn't rain much. Temperatures are in the 60's during the day and the 40's at night. It's nice, but chilly at night. And Sadie does need training. Too spoiled, too. Hope everyone has a beautiful Monday. Love and votes.

Rained some on Saturday. Was going to let Sadie out but went in her corral to see how the ground was. Not slippery, so her butt is still in it. Lol. She's mad. I know it's because she thinks she's suppose to be let out. It's amazing how much attitude she has. Gave her some carrots, loved on her, and now, I'm sending you votes. Love and hugs.

Sadie's been out of her coral for about 2 weeks, because it was slick and messy from all the rain. As soon as she was put back in, Monday, it started raining. I had to let her back out. Hope you're all doing wonderful. Warm hugs and a vote.

Wormed Sadie. Austin use to hold her head up and battle with her, so I could give her the worming treatment. The last 2 times, I gave it to her without any help. She just stood there and let me give it to her, then swallowed it. Good girl! Big brat, too. Lol. Love and a quick vote.

Giving Sadie her week of psyllium pellets. With all the rain and the ground being wet, I know she's in need of her monthly treatment. I make it a point to keep up with it. I think I may be a little behind on worming. Will get that taken care of, today. Had the farrier over before all the rain hit. Just need to ride her. Love and a vote. <3

Still have Sadie out. Her corral got so soaked, it's taking some time to dry out. Then, it rained, again. Crap! Hope you all have a safe New Years Eve. Love and a vote.

The pig's back. I was worried that something bad happened to her, because I haven't seen her in about 2 weeks. Tried to give her water, carrots and an apple, but she wasn't interested in any of it. She wouldn't let me get too close, either. She loves Sadie. Not sure how Sadie feels about her. And one of my cats is enjoying the perch. Love and a vote.

I spent my Christmas money on my cats. I bought them a nice perch and another gift to play and sleep in. Of course, they don't care for either. I bought Scruffy and Sissy a squeaky toy, each. Scruffy shredded his. Sissy's is ripping, too. Sadie got huge carrots. She's always happy with food. Lol. Lots of love, always, and a vote.

Going to the store, today, to look for a cat perch for my cats. When Rick's home, they're shut up in my room. Going to check out some cat toys, too. Poor things get bored. May need to take a lunch, because it's probably the busiest day of the year. Lol. Lots of love and a vote.

Merry Christmas!
Hope you're having a wonderful Christmas today. I got a short bareback ride on Gracie yesterday and then enjoyed celebrating with my son. Sure gonna miss him while he's gone but I'm excited for him too. Mattie and I enjoyed a quiet Christmas together and we'll head down to see my folks tomorrow. The horses got apples, carrots, and peppermints in their supper tonight and some extra hay. I didn't hear any complaining, lol.
Again, have a very Merry Christmas.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom Gracie.

I gave that Christmas Eve morning shift, at work, to someone else. Don't do mornings. I have 3 days off. We're having Christmas dinner at Rick's mom's house, today. Hoping to spend a quiet day at home on Christmas Day. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Eve. Love and a vote.

Started raining early yesterday morning. It stopped after a few hours. Sadie's corral is flooded. I bought extra corral panels, so I could extend her corral uphill to avoid some of the flooding, but Rick, who has to control everything, reshaped her corral. He's stupid. Going to get another panel and reshape it. Maybe put some electric fencing on it. Just kidding about the fencing. Love and a 'our behinds are wet' vote.

The hog is still on the loose. I feel so bad for her. I'm tempted to put some water out for her and some hay. The neighborhood dogs bark constantly. My neighbor can't sleep because of it. He was going to shoot her. He called Fish and Game and was told to do it. I thought he already had, but she was out this evening, walking around. This morning, I was waiting on the farrier. I let Sadie out, to run her, to get some of the spit and vinegar out of her, before he came, but saw my neighbor outside with a gun. I put the dogs in the house and Sadie up. Just before I did, she came up to the fence and greeted Sadie, then laid down, close to her. It touched my heart. I said I'd put her inside my fence, but was afraid Rick would make bacon out of me. Lol. Just praying for the best for her. Love and a vote.

Almost Christmas! So much left to do, too. Not only am I scheduled to work Christmas Eve morning, my first morning in over 9 years because I'm not a morning person, and then back home, 18 miles, to feed Sadie and the dogs, change clothes and pick up the gifts at my house, then drive 21 miles to my mother in law's house for Christmas dinner and gift exchange. We always do Christmas dinner on Christmas Day, but not this year. At least I have plans, right? Not looking forward to working a morning shift, because I think it should be illegal to have to get up before 11 am. Lol. It could always be worse. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Thank you all for your support of my son's service and supporting my prayers that he'll be stationed close to me. Never thought, when I held him as a baby, that the day would come when he'd end up a world away. So many of you understand. It's not always the service, but life, itself, that destines us to live away from them. I'm at peace, because of God and His hand of protection over all who and that I love. Love, hugs and a vote.
