How We Met

I've always wanted a horse, and my husband bought him for me as a surprise wedding gift. Only after he gave him to me did I find out that he was once a racehorse, had been badly neglected, and was on his way to recovery in only 5 short years! My husband bought me a dirty, skinny, timid, horse for $400 that he knew just needed a little TLC. What he didn't know was that this "bag of bones" was really a Secretariat great-grandson, with many other major horses in his pedigree! We had no idea what we had bought! But I was so happy when I found out: one, because that in itself is exciting, but two, I had visited Secretariat's grave in 7th grade and picked little bits of grass and flowers off of it, trying to savor the moment--and now I had his great-grandson in my back yard! Although this is all great, the true gift is Pal himself. He is my endearing boy, and I will never let him go. I have had offers since (word gets out in a small town) but he is staying right here!.

I just saw your comment on Pippin's page. I'm sorry that I haven't stopped by until now. I've just been so terribly busy and not had much Horse Channel time.

Thanks, I'm glad you like him so much. I hope your daughter enjoys her new mini when that day comes.

I uploaded a short video of Pippin last night on Horse Channel. It's called, Pippin: Miniature Elegance. If you want to see it just search the video tab on the left. I hope you like it.

How's everything with you? Any luck with transporting Mia yet? Here's a vote for you and have a great weekend.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie (In Loving Memory).

How are you doing? Pippin is looking really great now. He's his true colour again. No more blue roan and he's so shiny and in really good shape. I finally started training him yesterday for the first steps of dressage. He did really well with lunging even though I haven't done it in months. Obeyed every command and had no problem with the elastic side reins and surcingle.

He's smart enough to learn this quickly. Now if only I could be smart enough to teach him to his advantage. Fortunately for me he's pretty flexible and I don't have to be perfect. Wish me time and luck.

Jewel has an abscess in her mouth which explains why she was fighting the bit. We thought that there might be something wrong so we had the vet check her out and her teeth were too long and had grown into the opposite gum. I hope to be able to ride her in about a week.

Last time I rode, 4th time ever, she had already picked up the halt command. I sat deep in the saddle and didn't need to pull the reins. Boy, she picks up quickly. What a smart girl. Too bad I can't keep her.

I'm going to add her to Eddie's page. Even though she and Prince are in love I decided to keep the Percherons together. It's funny, she and Prince hated each other for about a week and kept biting and kicking through the fence. Now they don't like to be apart. Maybe it was just dangerous flirting. Who knows?

Anyway, all's fine here. Beautiful weather and cool nights. What's it like there?

Here's a vote for you and I hope you had a great weekend.

A vote from Fancy! Wow, what a day. I finished lunch, headed to the back porch to put my boots on, heard a crack and thuds! I was wondering, what in the world is Fancy playing with now. I looked out the back door and half of her tree had fallen. I ran to get my camera and went out. She ran to me and had this look like she wanted me know something was going on. That is the fourteenth photo on her page. Then she stood in front of me and snorted at the tree. Next thing I know she is all in the tree playing games with the tree. She bites the trunk and prances away. Then she pulls the limb and prances away. She grabs a mouthfull of leaves and prances away. She is walking under it and everywhere, then she prances like she has done something, silly little mare! Ok, I missed this photo, she scratches her butt on the fallen limbs after I put my camera away. Next thing I know it is extremely windy and a huge storm blows through. I am glad it is over:)

Her perception for this day was right on!

hiya everyone. im back from the show. thanks for voting while i was gone. thank you to all. they show was great and bad. the weather was horrible. it was pouring rain and thundering. my show clothes and helment were soaked by the time i started showing. when i got home it took all night for my helment to dry. but the second day the rain wasnt that bad. but on that friday it was pouring rain. but the riding part was amazing. uno was so good jumping and he got most of his leads. i was so happy with this show. it was the best show we have ever had. we placed a 4th and a 5th out 13 people. i thought that was really good for that fact that we didnt have all his leads. i gave him lots of cookies, treats, and love after the show. now we are both home resting. returning all the votes that every give me. thanks for all the support love you all! <3

Come visit me, Uno is back and galloping for HOTM November.

Here's a vote. We had a really good ride today- arena work in the paddock. Goldie and Moses did really well.
I wanted to let everyone know that starting Monday, June 21st, I probably will only be on HC on the weekends. I really hope everyone understands and will continue voting for Goldie (and Moses) everyday. Goldie deserves to win HOTM, she is the most wonderful horse I have ever met. I love her so much.

Thanks again everyone for the votes and blogs. Sorry I just can't find as much time as I would like to visit with each of you on HC! Anyway here's a quick update. Susie, Gypsy, Lolli, Lucky and Kicka are all doing great. I think Kicka adopted Susie as his new momma! Gave them all baths this week...Kicka loved the water! Even the water in his face did not phase him at all. I even put his halter on for the first time...he just stood there, didn't have to hold him or anything. He is something else! Hope you are all enjoying your summer! Leaving you with a vote

Come visit me, ACES WILD - Thanks for HOTD! & SUSIE AND FRIENDS.

hi! Thank you about Banana Butt. Abotu her braid. It is just a normal running braid. you can find videos on youtube. They are really easy todo ona horse with a longer mane(unlike Ana) You just start out with a tiny braid at teh begining of the mane and start adding peices as you go down. Here is a vote. p.s. i put glitter and clips in it to make is extra pretty!

what a great husband to get you a horse for a gift. my late husband (i'm widowed) once gave me a note in a card that said "this is good for one riding lesson", he never arranged the lesson for me though. lol. i finally said, "are you going to give me the money? should i call and make the lesson myself?" since he never did anything i showed him and bought a horse. haha. that started me down the road to riding again after quitting for 20 years. husbands can be good for something. :)

I hope your baby gets better! That would be cool if you got to do the barrel racing thing! Cheyenne lefta vote for Pal. Have a great day!


Cheyenne is now about 100 days pregnant & this is what it said about the foal at this stage in developement:
"Your mare's 7inch 'fetus' is now about the size of a six week old kitten. You can see a bit of hair on its lips and its ears uncurling from its head, they are now nearly 1/2 inch long and curling forwards on its head. The coronary band looks like little raised lines circling the top of its tiny 1/4 inch hooves."

Please everybody remember to vote for Buddy (140040) & Skipper (140881) today!!!!!!


They are called:
"The Tormentosa Horse Herd"
"'By Your Side', starring the Tormentosa Herd"
