How We Met

As of September 2012 I own 4 horses. I have two at my parents house for my parents and younger brothers to ride and two at my house for my husband and I.

My other horses include a 2002 Quarter Horse Gelding. He is the most amazing all around horse, he really can do anything, including riding bridleless!

Kai, a 2007 AQHA Mare. She is a once in a lifetime horse with a sweet personality. We used her in our Wedding to drive away in horse/buggy.

Jazz, a 2007 APHA mare. Beautiful tobiano pattern. Very smart horse, like I have never experienced before and she loves my husband!

I have a blog at allaroundhorses- .blogspot.com

I am also a photographer at AmberLangerud. com

Hi & a Vote,
Thanks for your support of Rocky's HOTD. It has been impossible for me to blog & vote this week since both my daughter has been moving into her apartment and we've been packing & cleaning all week, plus Comet is moving tomorrow to the new stable and I packed all his stuff into the trailer today! So, needless to say, I'm so tired out. Thank you so much for helping Rocky to get a HOTD badge once again.

Come visit me, Rocky (the blue-eyed wonder horse), Comet (the jumping bean) & Cowboy (the TRAILBLAZING Appaloosa).

Since becoming a part of HC I have chosen to learn many things regarding computer use. Don't get me wrong, I don't know half of it, but I know just about enough to do the things that interest me.

I have spent quite some time on DogChannel to learn my way around in case HorseChannel does the same. It is not very hard to vote and blog there.

Cowboy's very first band performance was a success. I have sat through previous first band performances of my other children, where they struggled through several Christmas pieces. Little Cowboy's group only played two pieces that they actually played correctly. It was wonderful. Either they have a great instructor or they have extra talent. I think it is both. LOL.

Last night Cowboy informed me that Thursday is National Day of the Horse and he kindly requested a special photo edit. I have been so busy I did not realize that. I am glad to see he takes an interest in celebrating the joy of horses and I thank my small Cowboy for keeping me up to date ♥


LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/ Word of the day: Bog Spavin - The feeling of panic when riding through marshy area. Also used to refer to horses who throw a fit at having to go through water puddles.

COWBOY & TRIGGER: A TALE OF TWO:
The very first time Cowboy rode Trigger in the back yard, out of the corral, Trigger would not listen to Cowboy. Cowboy was very upset, he said he wanted my horse (Fancy) because she would go. I rode Trigger outside the corral for three days and after that he did not give Cowboy any trouble.

Thanks for your support on Cowboy & Trigger's Jan HOTM campaign ♥


FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, “Deck the Stalls!”:
Q: Why did the elf push his bed into the fireplace?
A: He wanted to sleep like a log.

I guess every one already knows how Trigger came about living with us. He was given to my youngest brother, whom gave him to little Cowboy. When we got Trigger, he was in poor condition, worms, rainrot, no hair above his hooves because the mudd had pulled it all off & the worst case of thrush I have ever seen. We would visit him after school and work on improving his condition. At first he would run from us, eventually he began to accept my little Cowboy and not run from him. It was 1 month later, we brought him to our house for a few daily baths and treatments. He began to look and feel better. Trigger has a sweet horseinality, but he does not act like he has enjoyed many days just being loved on.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Happy Thanksgiving:
May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!


Here's a Thankful vote from Fancy & Trigger, HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU :^)
Every one ready to get full and plump!!!!
We will spend Thanksgiving day at my mom's. Fancy and Trigger will enjoy Thanksgiving carrots with their grain today :) I will not see Fancy Friday or be online, because we have to go out of town for family business. SO, I am going to spend time with Fancy after dinner today. I hope I will have enough time for a short Thanksgiving ride this evening.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Thank A Veteran : "This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” (Elmer Davis)

I hope you gals and guys are saddling up Saturday and/or Sunday in support of our Veterans. People who give or gave their lives for others each day they served, when they really did not have to do so. Wow, what amazing people they are.

My granddad was in WWII and my oldest son has served in the Afghanistan wars, working on communications devices. I have one cousin serving in the navy, that was injured during the attack against the United States Navy destroyer USS Cole on October 12, 2000.

We all are affected by the military in some way.
No need to be shy! Know a veteran, share and show love & support! Share interesting military facts, quotes, and experiences on Fancy's Veteran's Day page! Don't forget to leave a blog letting me know if you have a photo to add! Ask your HorseChannel friends to participate in Sunday's HorseChannel trail ride.)

No ride today, it was very chilly and windy :(

Does anyone remember reading last month, about a nationwide Ride to Remember Veterans during Veteran's Day weekend, Nov. 10-11, 2012? How would you guys like to have our own HorseChannel ride in honor of Veteran's Day? We can chose one day that we all will ride on, even if it is only for a few minutes or just to sit on the horse during the Veteran's holiday. Then we could share our pics from that day and share our story of the day. If you agree would Sunday November the 11 be ok for our ride date?

November is a time of thanks. Thanks should be part of our every day lives all year long. Let us be thankful for our friends and loved ones. Let us be kind one to another. Cruelty has no place among true friends.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were very busy days for me! I have been working with Fancy ground driving. Cowboy rides Trigger while I ground drive Fancy. Sunday, after church, we used the pool noodles in place of the cart shafts. Each day ground driving gets better! Fancy loves to keep moving, so we are working on her patience. We did get some great video that I hope to share with you in a few weeks.
The winds have been up all day and it is beginning to rain here right now. I did watch the news, this storm looks very serious. If you are affected by storm Sandra, be wise and stay safe. We love you♥

This morning Fancy and I practiced ground driving with the harness. It did not take long before Fancy was comfortable wearing the harness. We walked around the yard and up and down the street.

Hi! Did you have a busy, fun weekend? What have you been up to?

I have been on the move, but I enjoyed it! Saturday morning, Fancy participated in her first parade! It was a really big homecoming parade, with lots of tight crowds and loud bands! Fancy was excited for the first 15 to 20 minutes, but after that she was very relaxed and was not bothered by bouncing children on the sidelines. In past years, I have ridden my previous horses in this parade, but I never got to participate in the tradition of riding around the football field before the game. I could not get my past horses onto the football field because they were afraid. Well yesterday, I did for the first time, ride around the football field, with my Fancy! Fancy even took the lead and she did that running walk at least half way around! It was so much fun! I will never forget the first time I got to ride around the football field!!!!! Oh, and to boot, the home team won their game!!!!!! I would like to believe Fancy gave them good luck when she went around the field. LOL!
Half way through the day all I could think of was how this has to be my best day ever with Fancy. And then I think to myself, I have had so many days that I thought were my best day ever with Fancy! Saturday morning, I lost my keys on the way out of town. The keys fell off the side of the trailer or the truck. But I found them completely mangled on the side of a busy street after 6 hours of being run over in heavy traffic. Even though I had the lost key problem, I still had that feeling of this being the best day ever!

Saturday night, our family attended our horseshow end of year banquet. This was our first time attending and I had no idea what to expect. So, I did not take my camera and I was very surprised to see Little Cowboy & Trigger won a good bit of awards. Little Cowboy was so excited to share the awards with Trigger, they used their new snaffle bit and new grooming kit tonight. He is going to save his new blanket for next years show season. Little Cowboy rode until dark, and I did get a few pictures tonight before it got too dark.

Have a beautiful Autumn day ✞

Continued history of the Canadian horse:

The Canadian breed became renowned for its abilities as a roadster, racer and stylish harness horse. By 1820, classes for Canadian Horses were being held at agricultural exhibitions in Lower Canada and in New York. Over the next decades, increasing numbers of Canadian horses, including the best stallions, were sold to the United States. Many found their way into the foundation stock of other breeds such as the Morgan, Tennessee Walker, American Saddlebred and Standardbred.
With the outbreak of the U.S. Civil War in 1861, Canadian Horses once again were used for miltary service when thousands were exported to supply the Union Army. By the end of the war in 1865, at least 30,000 Canadian Horses had been exported for military service.
Later, in 1874, Canadian Horses took part in the historic North West Mounted Police Great March West, in the Northwest Rebellion of 1885 and are even said to have served in the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Canadian Horses sent to serve in the Boer War in South Africa did so well that hundreds were subsequently purchased for the British Imperial forces and shipped overseas. During World War I, more Canadian Horses were shipped off to battle in France, never to return.
Ironically, the popularity and availability of the Canadian Horse almost caused its demise as a distinct breed.


Yesterday I rode Misty and ponied Sierra. They both did pretty good, considering I dont do it with them very often. Sometimes Sierra tends to get a bit rowdy when I am ponying her, but yesterday she was very well behaved. It is still pretty chilly out but at least the wind has died down.

Question of the day: If you were looking to buy another horse, would you rather buy a foal and train it from the begining, or buy a full grown horse that isnt trained quite the way you would like it to be?

Have a great weekend everyone and tommorow I will be blogging on Morgans!

I experienced something new during our Saturday ride . It was a simple thing, but it was beautiful. As we rode through the forest, at a nice relaxed walk, we were in a grove of trees as the wind picked up slightly. It was as if the wind gently wrapped around us. With the gentle wind came a feeling that I cannot describe. It was like we were in a snow globe. It was beautiful. The trees surrounded us, except the clearing of the trail. The prettiest part was the leaves! The leaves began to fall around us like a summer shower! It was so beautiful to see and feel all the colored leaves fall like rain. They fell slowly, but it was so many and it lasted for a few minutes as we walked through. I looked up and all I could see was the leaves swirling down, it was beautiful!

Jack-o-lantern, Jack-o-lantern,
You are such a funny sight.
As you sit there by the window,
Looking out into the night.
You were once a sturdy pumpkin,
growing on a curly vine.
Now you are a Jack-o-lantern,
See your night lights shine.

I have played Whinny Warz since it began and suddenly I have found 2 horses of our herd! Yesterday I found Little Cowboy and Trigger in Whinny Warz! Don't give up, you can find your horses there! Maybe one day I will find My Fancy in Whinny Warz! I will keep playing till I find her. And even after that. I just like seeing all the horse pictures. LOL.

OPPS! On our trailride Fancy's boa boot came unstitched at the rear bottom sole. I am going to the store today and see how much it cost to return them for repair. She has not used them 15 times and we have owned them for 14 months now. The warranty ran out 2 months ago. Isn't that a bummer. I don't know if any one else has ever had that problem, but if I could get another pair, I would not buy another pair just like them. Because we have used those boots 15 times or less and they have come undone. I would try something different.

Have a beautiful Autumn day ✞

Thanks so much for your vote...it was such a wonderful surprise to see Luna had been voted HOTD...and she wasn't even running for it! I gave her extra carrots, of course. I went riding yesterday, but afterwards I tried something I saw in a YouTube video. I started teaching her to "shake hands" (or hoofs? LOL). She started getting the idea of what I want after about 15 minutes. She doesn't offer up a hoof on command yet, but she started lifting her hoof towards me (instead of backwards, as if I was going to clean the hoof)and letting me hold it as long as I like. So that's progress, and today I will repeat until she gets it. It's just a stupid trick, but it's fun!

It's getting real cold around here now, but that won't keep me away from Luna. Have a horsey day! Voted.

HI, we are in, what feels like unending days of cold & rain. I did pull out the heavy clothes today! Hopefully the rains will move out after tonight. I am ready for some clear sunny weather. I have to think back on Friday and honesty thank God for the sunshine we enjoyed this past Friday as Fancy and I picked Little Cowboy up after school.

Today being Columbus Day has me thinking upon the ways we travel. Ships and traveling across water are not for me. I am a total land lover. My favorite way to travel, long as the weather is good, is horseback of course! I know, You know I would say that. LOL! Have you ever traveled to the store, school, a relative, friend's home, or anywhere by horseback or horse pulled vehicle? If you have, what did you think of the experience? I wish I could ride every where by horse, but along with that I would like warm weather. LOL.


Have a peaceful night ✞

Week two of the HOTM run, Woohoo!

Question of the day: Has your horse ever been in a near death situation and lived to tell about it? ( or rather whinnny about it)

A long time ago when my fencer wasnt working Dakota used to break out of his fence all the time, and several times ran down the middle of a busy tar road near our place, but never got hit. Another time he was inside his 3-sided shed when a tornado picked it up and completely demolished it, and somehow never got a scratch.
If your horse has ever been in a near death situation, I would love to hear about it!
Thanks for all the support!

Happy Monday to Zorro!
I'm sorry it's been so long since I've been on HC. I was recently laid off a job I've had for 10 years (a merger/corporate buyout thing), so I've been busy dealing with that.

I did buy a new saddle though. I've ridden English my whole life, but a friend encouraged me to try Western, so I got a Western saddle for trail rides. I didn't know how to do up the girth though, so I felt silly asking someone to help! I admit, though, it was a REAL comfortable saddle.

I've been having such a blast with Luna lately. She's really become quite friendly, almost like a dog.
Yesterday, she was laying on the ground when I went out to see her, so I just went right up to her and laid down with her! It was so fun!
The weather here in Illinois turned real cold real fast, and I bet the weather in Minnesota is pretty bitter, too. I guess Winter is definitely coming LOL!
Have a great Monday, and I hope you have a horsey day! Voted.

Friday my truck did not start. My neighbor drove Little Cowboy to school & I rode Fancy to after school pic up. I got there early so Fancy could settle in and see the activity there. Some teachers were a bit concerned! The school superintendent came to ask me what was going on. I told him & he was concerned. Fancy does not cotton to all strangers & he might have been one she had concern for. He patted the middle of her face while a school bus came by, she backed & pulled away. Now Fancy is not afraid of the bus, but he made her feel a bit unsafe. Other wise she was fine & dandy. After he left, we did some ground work to help clear her mind.
I noticed a window full of children with eyes wide! I heard screams of "A Horse!!!!" After school let out, one little girl came over to ask if this was the horse she saw at the fair 2 weeks ago. Some of the children came over to rub her & she stood nicely.
Finally Little Cowboy came running up. I told him not to run because I had to stop the other children from running up to her. He had to leave his trombone in his locker. I hung his 50 lb book bag on the saddle horn & he sat in my saddle while I walked them off school campus to find a quiet parking lot where I could get into my saddle. Little Cowboy slid back into his buddy seat & we were on our way. Fancy was walking fast! I thought her interest was getting back to Trigger. I asked Fancy to enter the 1st driveway at home, & she pulled away. I wanted to see what she had in mind. I thought she wanted to enter the 2nd driveway, so I let her go. To my surprise, she kept going to the end of the road & started into the woods. We could not go for a fun ride, I had to get that huge book bag off of her. Bless her heart.
We relieved Fancy of the extra weight, saddled Trigger & we did ride. I don't know what Fancy was looking for, she didn't want to be still. She wanted to keep moving. When I was ready to go in she was still in go mode. Maybe she was searching for the other horses that she has been riding with lately. But she won't find them around here.
Saturday, my brother & I traveled out to met some new horsey friends. It was late when I got home and I was extremely tired.

How has your weekend been?
Have a Blessed day ✞
