BIIIIGGGG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!
Guys... I found out today that Tango has been sold... it cracked my heart a bit... I LOVED Tango and I still do... I got him so far... I spent at least 4 hours every single day with him... and all the money and time later... someone ends up getting a great horse for a tiny price to pay for what I made him... we got so far together... and I end up not riding at all and horse-less... It is just sad/frustrating...

Tango will be missed greatly and will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart. "Tango... I love you and I will never forget you"

How are you doing? Well, it looks as though you can write pretty long blogs too. That's funny about Gerry. And I also learnt to ride by riding bareback for over a year before I could afford a saddle. Good luck at the show. It sounds like fun.

We've had so many flies this year. I don't know where they're breeding. Perhaps someone has a pile of manure somewhere. It's hard to tell. Anyway, poor Pippin was being so bothered by them that he went to the back of his big pen and put his head under a tarp and wrapped his eyes so that they couldn't get to them. He had a cloud swarming over his head and he just stood there. It looked so pitiful yet funny. I ordered a flymask for him right away. We haven't needed one before. It might also be because we had cooler weather than usual and then suddenly back to over 100 degrees.

Melian is doing really well and we are working hard on obedience. She can be quite independent. I just uploaded a new photo of her on Pippin's page. Plus there's one of the two of them close up.

No, I didn't go to the hospital with my concussion. If anyone had found out I probably wouldn't be riding anymore. Riding means so much to me. (This is not recommened though. If it happens to you make sure you tell your parents.)

Here's a vote for you and I hope you're having a great weekend. ttyl

How's your friend doing? I hope she's better.

Well, the bronco riding incident happened last November. I decided to ride Prince bareback, something he's not used to, and he was acting skittish. When I got to the field I realized that I didn't have my helmet so I turned back and Prince just took off. When I pulled on the reins to slow him down he went beserk and turned into a bronco. He was bucking and twisting and going every which way. Everytime I landed back on his back I bruised something and several times I landed crooked with my knee on his spine and that tore something. It's still not quite right but it's much better. Anyway, I finally bailed out and came off, landing on my back and hitting my head. I didn't realize I had concussion until the next day when I had a major headache and was throwing up constantly. That lasted for about a week but I don't think it caused any permanent damage. Or maybe that's why I can't thing straight sometimes? :)

And I got to ride again on Monday night. With the saddle this time and even though it was evening it was pretty hot. We're back in the 100's here again. More like our normal summers. We had a great ride and the horses were eager to go. That's too bad that your horse is too bony. Prince is pretty comfortable. Which horse were you riding?

And yes, riding a bike with Pippin is lots of fun. I did it again last night. He can really go. And your videocam sounds pretty neat. I'll have to see about that.

I have a photo on Pippin's page of him sniffing Melian, and there are some on my other two pages too.

Well, that's all from me. I always get carried away when I start writing about the animals I love. Here's a vote for you. Enjoy your summer with your horses!

Thanks! No, I just sold her so I probably won't be showing or competing with Halle, but I have a new horse coming, and I will soon set her up a web page. ♦ Please help Halle get HOTM, as she deserves it being such a great horse, and going to a new home where she will be loved! ♦

That is so nice that you have a new best friend with whom you can ride. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I always get so behind in my blogs. On Thursday we went riding and I rode Prince bareback. It's the first time since my bronco incident with him in November and he was really good. If he continues to behave I think I'll do it more often. I don't think I'll try jumping bareback anytime soon though. I like cantering and slow trotting but until my knee is properly healed it's hard to keep my balance. Plus I need practice!

I took Pippin out with the cart last Sunday. It had been a couple of weeks. I had just been taking him for walks because I've been training Melian to walk on a leash. So, this was her first time in the cart and at first she was nervous but then she loved it and even took the reins in her mouth.

Last Monday we went for a walk, my sister and her parrot and me and Pippin and Melian. Pippin and Melian were doing fine together and then suddenly out of nowhere this weimaraner attacked us. He was charging us and barking like crazy but his owner managed to catch him in time. Pippin's response was to rear and bolt. I hung onto him but he hit Melian with his feet and scared her to death. Not good for their first walk together. After Pippin's initial scare he then was so furious that he was trying to get away from me and attack the dog. He doesn't like strange dogs anyway and once chased one all the way to it's home. I gave Melian some treats right next to Pippin's nose so that she would have good associations with him right away. Pippin was jealous so he got a dog biscuit too. I don't think he really liked it (first time that's ever happened) but he ate it anyway. Melian is fine and wasn't injured. The next day we went the same way and she was scared because she thought that the dog would be there again. In a way, I'm glad because that means she's not blaming it on Pippin. I want them to be friends and she seems to have forgotten what he did.

And then on Wednesday I took Pippin out for a bike ride. I haven't done that since November when Prince injured my knee with his bucking bronco act. So, I didn't think Pippin would be too energetic but he ran the whole way, 8 miles, and at one point where the road was nice and flat he galloped full speed and was pulling me at over 24mph. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and I know he was happy being out with his herd.

And then tonight Pippin and Melian had some fun together. We went for a walk and I let Pippin run free in the forest. He was running around like a wild thing and Melian was hot on his heels. She's not quite fast enough to keep up but she was smart enough to cut corners. Now she's pooped. Pippin isn't though. I think he could have run for another 15 minutes at that flat out gallop. Too bad I didn't have a camera. I really need to carry one around with me.

Sorry, I do get carried away with all my adventures. Here's a vote for you and I hope you had a great weekend.

hi

How are things going? Do you still get to see Tango? And have you picked another horse yet? Were they really giving away horses? That's amazing!
Yesterday evening I rode Prince and since my sister wasn't riding I used the English saddle. I like it so much better and I'm sure Prince does too. He's so much better behaved and more energetic with it. It is lighter but it could also be coincidence because he behaves better when he's not distracted by Eddie.
Anyway, we had another wonderful ride in a thunderstorm. Fortunately, the rain didn't start until right after we were done. Unfortuately, he has decided that jumps are scary. He finally decided to try and take one slowly. He put one foot over gingerly and hit the pole. Well, after it fell it took me quite awhile to go over the fallen pole. So, after that we just went over ground poles. Maybe I need to try something more solid. One thing I am very thankful for is that he no longer seems to be interested in bucking. What a relief!
And Pippin is doing so well and getting along with Melian. I'm so happy to see that. Soon I will start trying to walk them together. Pippin on my right and Melian on my left. We'll see how that goes.
I hope you're getting time for riding this summer. Here's a vote for you and I hope you have a great holiday weekend. ttyl

Did you pick a horse yet? I'm sorry that you're going to miss Tango but it really is better to start with a sound horse. I hope you're enjoying your vacation but sorry you're not riding.
Did you get a chance to see Melian yet? She's getting along well with Pippin. Yesterday I took Pippin out to graze and made him do his tricks. Melian found this very intriguing and then I tied Pippin up and she grabbed his rope and started pulling him around. It was pretty funny but then when Pippin started following Melian got a little nervous and gave up.

I hope you're having a great weekend and here's a vote for you. Please vote for Pippin in the glamour shot. I would really appreciate it. ttyl

I'm so sorry I didn't get back to you until now. I know I promised to write on Friday but the surprise that I got has taken up a lot of my time. What is the surprise? A new puppy! Her name is Melian and she is a 9 week old saluki. She is an absolutely adorable little monster. I posted a couple of photos of her on Prince's page but I would love you to stop by her page on the dog channel. Her number is 141414.

I still miss Tiny terribly and in some ways having Melian makes me even sadder but then she does the funniest things and I can't help but laugh at her antics. I know that she will help fill in the hole in my heart. Who can't help but love a puppy?

Thanks for your patience and hopefully for voting for Pippin the glamour shot contest. I hope you're having a great weekend on horseback. Leaving you with a vote.

PLEASE READ!
hey guys its tango! i was never leasing tango... (this is really hard for me to talk about and thats why i havent been on in the past 2 weeks...) however the prices on his board and food and ferrier and all the other bills kept pileing up.... the bill for this month was about or a lil more than a house payment and that was something i couldent do for a horse i wasent even leasing... hes an amazing horse but it was just too much and i had to leave. So im going to look at a boarding barn tomorrow and a horse named jack on monday... and some free trained paint horses later this week... I just want to say that i will always miss tango and really wish i could say goodbye. the good news is that if everything works out with one of these bizillion paints or the tb jack than i wont have to say goodbye to a horse for a long time unless i want to. so Tango is no longer being riden by me and i will no longer have any stories to tell about tango but hopefully about another horse...
Thanks for reading,
mags and Tango

Sorry this is cut and paste but I'm trying to reach as many horses as possible. I will write properly later.

I was wondering if you could do my friends on the Dog Channel a favour? They are running for dog of the month and they need lots more votes to win. Would you go over there and give them a vote today and tomorrow? Their number is 85816. Their names are Little Bit and Paco.

You can log in with your Horse Channel information. Then click on the dog of the day and change the last numbers to 85816.

Thank you so much. Leaving you with a vote and hoping you're having a great weekend.

Unfortunately, you cannot leave a blog on the Dog Channel without a profile. If you would like to leave a message please stop by Eddie's page. Thank you so much.

Yep I saw the derby, did you? I was kind of hoping for General Quarters(although I knew he wasn't going to win)- his owner is a former high school teacher and owns, grooms, and trains him himself. Now the Derby is the only race I watch (and I watch it mainly b/c it's such a big thing), too much horse racing scares me. That was an amazing race that Mine That Bird had though, I have to say!
