Thanks for stopping by. How are things with you? I had an amazing ride on Prince on Tuesday. I moved the jumps and set them up as a double. Well, I didn't see the lush alfalfa plant between them but Prince sure did. My sister was riding Prince while I worked on the jumps and a friend was riding Eddie.

When I finally switched sadddle and put Eddie's English saddle on Prince I cantered him a little (he was kind of lethargic) and then I headed him towards the jumps. The first one was only 14" but the second one is at 2'. This is the first time I've tried that height since starting from scratch with this saddle. Well, he went over the first jump with no problem, landed, and put his head down to eat the alfalfa plant. So, I pulled his head up and we turned around and tried it again. Same thing. And again, about 5 times. Finally I grabbed the extra length of the reins and whipped his big butt and gave him LOTS of leg and he jumped over both jumps flawlessly. Yippee! And I took him over a couple more times. It was so much fun and his jumps are so huge.

We're going there early tomorrow morning again. All 3 of us and I'm going to try and film some. I hope it works out.

This evening a bunch of us went for a walk and I tried walking with Pippin on my right and Melian on my left. Both were on their leads and we did quite well. Melian did pull a little because she's a little nervous around Pippin but it was the first time for both of them together and I think it went pretty well. We went a couple of miles.

On Monday I took Melian on her first bike ride and we went 4 miles. She was so good and did everything that I asked her. Maybe someday I'll brave taking Pippin on the other side. I can just imagine us all in a big pile though. They'd both have to be very well-behaved.

And I don't think Melian is doing too well in the contest. Some of the top dogs have over 1000 votes by the end of the week. But I'm still trying. I probably need to campaign again. She's also learnt that new trick really well. I want to get her doing it really well on video.

Well, that's all from me for now. I'm sorry that's it's been awhile since I last wrote again. I'm finally beginning to feel better. Here's a vote for you.

P.S. I just added a new video of Pippin. It's only 14 seconds but it's pretty neat. He's just running and playing in his pen. It's called Pippin's Moves.

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

How are you and Lady GG doing? I'm sorry I haven't stopped by in ages. I've been sick for awhile and I'm still not feeling great but I thought I'd try to catch up a little bit with my blogging.

I missed my ride on Prince the week before last because of being sick but last week I decided to ride anway. I'm so glad that I did. First I rode Western so that my sister could ride Eddie with the English saddle. Then she stopped and I switched saddles and rode Prince over the jumps several times. He was so good. He refused the first one but after that he was very well behaved. They're still low but I need to fix the jumps and make them more sturdy before we can jump any higher. Jumping is just so much fun. And when we were heading back Prince wanted to continue jumping. I'm so glad he likes it too and I can't wait until he can jump higher. I guess I have to though. Did you find an English saddle yet?

Pippin is doing great as usual. We finally got the replacement flymask today. It's a little too big now so I'll have to fix that too. And now we don't have as many flies. When I'm not feeling good it's great to take Pippin and the cart because then he does all the work. He just loves it and I love when he gallops.

Melian is also doing great and now weighs almost 30lbs. She is growing so fast and learning fast too. Tomorrow I hope to ride again and I'll bring her along. And we'll go to the post office too. She loves it there because they give her treats. Thanks so much for voting for her in the contest and for asking your friends to vote too.

A couple of nights ago I was working at the computer and she noticed that I had a biscuit in my pocket. I've been trying to teach her to wipe her eye with her paw and every night before we go to bed I tell her to do it and then I take her paw and wipe her eye. We've been doing this for about 2 weeks now and didn't seem to be getting anywhere. Anyway, I told her to do it and just continued working at the computer. I didn't think she'd do it but a minute later she suddenly did it and gave me her most mischievous look. So then I had to find the biscuit fast in my pocketful of junk and gave it to her. Later that night I told her to do it and she did it right away. Then last night she did it again but when I told her to do it the second time she just stared at me. We stared at each other for about 7 minutes and then I gave in and pulled her paw over her face for her and gave her the biscuit. I guess I'll see whether she'll do it again tonight. Once she knows it well I'll have to get it on video.

Well, I really have been babbling on, haven't I? I guess to make up for lost time. Here's a vote for you and I hope you're doing fine.

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

It was great to hear from you. So, any more thoughts on the English saddle? I've ridden Prince a few times with it now and I know he loves it. I have to use the Western saddle when my sister rides though because it's too small for Eddie's huge back.

It's been a little cooler here the past few days. Pippin is already starting his winter coat. I'm of two minds to clip him again. I haven't decided yet. I think if and when it gets back into the 100s I may go ahead and do just that. His replacement flymask has not yet come. I hope it doesn't take too long. The flies are just terrible.

A couple of evenings ago it was windy. I always move Pippin from his big paddock into a smaller pen at night. There he has a shelter and less chance of being eaten by something. I always just open both gates and he comes running and whinnying and canters straight to his food in the smaller pen. Well, because of the wind the gate to the small pen was closed by the time he got to it. I had Melian on a lead tied to the fence right there and Pippin had every opportunity to trample her. He got really close twice but was good enough to avoid her. I was a little worried but then I was very happy because since he doesn't like strange dogs at all this was a confirmation of his acceptance of her. If that had been some unknown dog he would have tried to kill it.

So, you're having a cooler summer? Well, apart from the last few days we've had our usual 115 degree weather. I sure don't mind the cool spell but the garden has suffered.

I hope you have a great weekend without any more problems. Here's a vote for you.

P.S. I entered Melian in a photo contest. I would really appreciate if you would vote for her daily and perhaps ask your family and friends to help too?

So, you have lots of flies too. It seems to be a bad year for everyone.

I had wonderful trail ride on Prince last night. I got to use the English saddle again and he was just so good. I couldn't have asked for better except perhaps for a little cooler weather. It was in the high 90s at 7pm. And next week it's supposed to be around 115.

This evening we went for a longer bike ride so I didn't take Pippin. I took Tuna and Sven, two of our little dogs, in my basket, and they ran part of the way too and loved it.

Pippin saw us leaving and he was not happy. He neighed and whinnied with disappointment. When we got back I moved him and fed him thinking that would make him happy and then I decided to take Melian, my new pup, on her first short bike ride. We were only gone for about 10 minutes and we went about 10 mph. She loved it but was quite tired. She's still a puppy with not a lot of stamina except in short bursts. Well, you should have seen Pippin's face when he saw me take Melian. Jealousy!

So, when I got back with her I asked him if he wanted to go and off we went. He was so eager to go and very happy. On the way back I let him loose to run off some of his energy in the forest. Then he didn't want to come back and ignored me calling him. So, very quietly I asked him, "do you want some?" He made a beeline for me. I didn't have anything to give him so I had to pick something quickly. There wasn't much, just some foxtails but he seemed satisfied. And it was very rewarding for me to have him come so obediently for that. It works everytime.

Thanks for checking out Melian's new photos on Pippin's page. Tomorrow I hope his fly mask comes. Here's a vote for you and I hope you have a great weekend. ttyl

Yes, Pippin is really energetic. I suspect he's one of the fittest minis in the world. I bet most don't get the workout that he does. Probably because he's my only horse. I only get to see Prince and Eddie once a week.

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.

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

Hey. I really tired today. I was at the barn. It looks like hopefully Lacey can start making a slow recovery. Nothing is set in stone. This morning she had diearhea, then like an hour later she just fell over in her stall. They got her up and took her outside to try to graze her and in case she died right there the campers won't see it. Then the vet rushed over and gave her more liquids through the IV. Then he stuck a long tube through her nostril and stomach fluids and toxins came out. I had to hold her durning all of this. The vet said that she is may start to recover in the next few days. Thanks for the vote. Grey and I appericate it!!! :) Today I walked out and opened up the gates so then the horses can run out. I got some cute pictures and a cool video. Then I went out to the pastures and took some pictures and bleached the throughs. Grey came right up to me and followed me around until I left. Meanwhile there is hay all over that he could be eating. I hope to post the new photos soon. Here's a vote for you...

I'm glad to hear that the Lady is doing so much better around machinery. Last week when we went riding 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!

And I got to ride again on Monday. 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.

And last week I also 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. It was such fun that we went again tonight.

And on Sunday evening 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.

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. I'm glad you're enjoying your summer outside and with your horses!

Sorry that it took so long for me to blog you back. One of our horses,Lacey, is really sick. I've been going to the barn almost every day this week. I've been really tired and didin't really feel like blogging. She is collicing for over two weeks now. She hasn't eaten or passed anything in a while. They are deciding wheter or not to put her down. They have tried just about everything possible to save her. Now they just have to wait for her to show some sign of recovery. Thanks for the vote. I appericate it. I have been riding a little bit here and there the last week. Here's a vote for you. Depending on how things go... I might be back on tommorrow.

P.S. from PF
Sorry hit the wrong key! Well PF has her breakfast in our smaller pasture next to our home and as we were crossing a big tractor came and a man stopped to ask for directions to a farm. The wind was blowing hard and PF did not like this tractor or strange man in front of our gate! I had to quick safety tie her to ask the man who he was looking for! His French was a country type and hard to really understand so I told him to ask someone further down the road. I then closed our gate and PF was calm as usual but SHE DID NOT LIKE THAT MAN for some reason! She reminded me of my lab retriever ( he recently passed away) who would let me know if he did not like someone , which was very rare! Our horses are wonderful aren-t they?

Happy 4th of July
I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow and a great weekend. I had a interesting day today. I got up early and spent the day soldering copper pipe for a new building and since it was over 100 degrees outside we had the air conditioner on and the windows all closed. Well, we all felt kind of sleepy all day and dizzy and I almost passed out several times. I lit the torch for some pipe joints near the septic vents and there must have been gas from the septic system in the room because the flames went everywhere. Fortunately, they burnt out quickly but I covered the nearby vent to prevent it from happening again. I kept working and as the evening wore on I was feeling more and more tired and dizzy and then suddenly it occurred to me that I was working with a torch in an enclosed area and that we all must have carbon dioxide poisoning. I had it the worst since I was right there by the pipes and using the torch. I just thought I was coming down with the flu or something. We opened up the windows and a aired out the place. I felt better a few hours later but I'm still pretty tired. It's good thing that Melian didn't want to stay in the room with us for long. Maybe she figured it out. She's so small it could have harmed her. In fact, she didn't play as much today so maybe it also affected her a little.
Well, that was my excitement for the day. Tomorrow we will work on it a bit more then in the evening we'll have a nice bbq. I'm looking forward to that.
A couple of evenings ago 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.
Happy 4th to you! I'm glad you've had such nice rides. It sounds pretty there. Here's a vote. ttyl

Hey!!! :) Thanks for the vote!!! I can't believe that I now have 800 votes!!! Wow!!! I was shocked when I logged on and saw that number. Here's a vote for you!!!I'm am sooo tired!!! Little kids are annoying!!! I spent all day today at the barn helping out with camp. Today they painted horses. I have paint on my boots now.Ugg!!! They don't even say sorry when they spill paint on you or get you soaking wet with the hose!!! I love the campers that tell me that I'm doing everything wrong!!! Anyway, I had a really nice time with Grey today. He was in for half of the day while he was being painted.Then one of the campers rode him. When it was time to give the horses that went out a bath nobody wanted to. I went and started giving Grey a his bath(he had paint all over him) then one of the campers wanted to help. So I let her do it. Then a horrible storm came through so I untied Grey and gave his lead rope to someone who needed it to wash their horse (I was standing right next to his head anyway.) I was watching the rain fall because we are not suppose to leave the campers alone with horses and I don't trust some of them very much with Grey. Grey was getting board just standing around so he put his head on my shoulder and just stood there next to me breathing his warm breath down my neck for a half hour straight.It was chilly from all of the rain and wind from the storm so it felt really good. Then when it was time for the camper to sweat scrape him he got a ticklish. He started to massage my shoulders with his lips (like how horses in the wild groom each other). Then I told the camper to pit him back in his stall while I go get his fly mask and fly spray. She apparently didn't listen because I had a surprise when I turned around- there was Grey!!! He had followed me all the way down to the tack room!!! It was really loud in the asiles and the campers were all hanging out in the bathroom screaming because of the storm and it was lighting and thundering out. I told him to stand while i ran inside and got the spray and his fly mask. We have two doors in the tack room. He was waiting at one of them and I came out of the other so he came trotting over to me. I put his mask on and the spray so then i could put it back in the tack room and not make another trip. He tried to open the door when it shut. he followed me back to his stall then it was feed time. After when I went to let him out of his stall so he can go to the pasture, he came all the way out of his stall the turned back around and came over to me to pet him one last time before he left to go to the pasture.I hope to spend the day with Big Grey again tommorrow. :)
I love him soooo much. Big Grey's love is forever and always!!! wprds can't describe the feeling I feel when I'm with Mr.Big Handsome Oversized Pony Butt!!! :)
Anyway, here's a vote!!! Hope to be back on tommorrow!!! :)

How's everything going over there? Sorry, I haven't written in awhile again. I still haven't caught up.

Would you be so kind as to vote for Pippin in the Glamour Shot contest? The link is below. The other day I took him for a cart ride and we were showing off to a friend on a bike. Pippin was chasing him through the forest when suddenly he stopped and pulled over to the side. I couldn't figure out why and I told him, "Come on, Pippin. Let's keep going." So, he obeyed but then I saw that something was wrong because the cart was crooked to him and I realized that one of the traces had come loose. He was smart enough to stop and I have to admit, I was quite proud of him. And even though he was stopped he still tried to obey when I asked him to move on. What a good boy he is. I hooked the trace back up and on we went.

And today my sister and I rode Eddie and Prince. They were both really energetic and Prince doesn't seem to be tripping anymore. It had been raining but was clear when we arrived. However shortly after we started riding the rain returned and we were thoroughly soaked. Generally I don't like being out in the rain, Tiny would have considered that wimpish of me, but today it was so beautiful. In the adjacent field on one side of us was a show of rainbows and on the other it was bright and sunny. It was quite spectacular.

Well, that is all from me. Except, there is a big surprise coming. I am leaving tomorrow at 6am to get it. We won't be back until midnight at the earliest so I'll tell everyone about it on Friday. Leaving a vote here too.

I'm sorry that I haven't stopped by in awhile. I had to be offline for a few weeks and I sure have missed writing to everyone. How are you doing?
I rode Prince a couple of weeks ago without Eddie there to distract him. He was the best he's ever been and I so enjoyed our ride. He paid close attention to everything that I asked because he wasn't spending the whole time trying to get to Eddie or to look at him. He took the correct lead each time we cantered and I even got him to do shoulder in at the trot. Something we've been working on for awhile. And then we did a few low jumps and he behaved and didn't try to buck me off or bolt on the landing. I think that using Eddie's English saddle helps a lot too. He must really prefer it, I know that I do.
Eddie also had an adventure. He was the star attraction in the annual rodeo parade and sure knew how to strut his stuff. He looked so handsome in his regalia. I have a photo of him from last year's parade. He even made the front page of the local newspaper!
And I finally trimmed Pippin. We suddenly had 100 degree weather and he couldn't be in his buffalo disguise any longer. He looks so beautiful now. I like the cute cuddly look of winter but the summer look is so elegant. He's also mellowed out now that he's turned 4 and he is so good with the cart. I can get him to do just about anything and we will be working on fancier stuff later this summer if I have time, fingers crossed.
Well, that's all from me for now. Thank you so much for voting for Pippin in the glamour shot. I really appreciate it. I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day and weekend. Leaving you with a vote.

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

I'm so sorry that I haven't stopped by in awhile. I have a situation at home and I couldn't come onto the channels for a week. I'm just stopping by today and I hope to be back on properly in a week or so. As long as everything at home resolves itself.
Thank you so much for your votes and congratulations for Prince. I really appreciate your support and I couldn't have done it without all my friends.
I rode Prince on Thursday. That was the last day of April and I haven't seen him since he won hotm. I'll have to tell him this week. We had a great ride. It was cool and I was trotting him in circles in the field when suddenly right from the center where we were trotting this killdeer pops up and she's all upset and starts pretending to be lame. I knew immediately from her behaviour that she had a nest there so I walked Prince away and watched until she returned to her eggs. I pointed her out to my sister, who was riding Eddie, so that we could give her a wide berth and let her brood in peace. I think they're so cute and the chicks will be the cutest little balls of fluff. I hope we get to see them.
Well, I hope you've been able to have some fun riding this weekend. There's really nothing better. Leaving you with another vote.

If you get a chance, please vote for Pippin in the glamour shot contest. Page 22. Thanks so much.

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

A vote for BEAUTIFUL LADY GG from Petite Fleur
Just trying to get a hello and a vote for you sweetheart! Unfortunately my 4X4 is kaput, totaled, nada! She was great while she was in service and the best part is I came out with a scratch but a little mentally shook up! Hugs to the beautiful mare

hello there
we are friends of Tiny's from the dog channel(Prince and Pippin here on the hc) and they asked if we would let their friends know that they will not be on here for a bit. here is the message from them ...I just wanted to let you know that we won't be on the channels for a while. Something has come up and I don't know how long we'll be gone. I will still have e-mail access though.
Normally, I would go and personally thank everyone for their votes for Prince, Pippin, and Pam's goat business. And, of course, those needing prayers, birthday wishes, and their own votes. I am going to be unable to do this so I was hoping that you would pass my thanks and greetings on to all my friends. I am going to miss everyone terribly. I will continue voting for requests off the channels and keep those in need in my prayers If you could pray that our situation resolves itself and that we can come back soon, I would appreciate it. The Adored4's mama and Poirot's are affected by this too. Thank you for your understanding. And please do continue to vote for Prince and Pippin.
thanks Rufus and momma Kay dc29910

A vote for LADY GG
Respect between a horse and its owner is one of the greatest bonds that will ever exist! Then comes the spoiling! Best time ie yto get the interest in world an, they get it fast, huh? here is our vote for you! I rolled my landcruiser on its side in a big ditch last evening so doing this slowly: I am okay, just shook up/ No other vehicles, just me/ I was reaching on the floor for a beverage whish rolled, looked up and 2 cars suddenly stopped which gave me the choice of hitting them or going off pist to avoid injury.I am doing fine, no hospitals, just have to find the status of my car! Life could be a lot worse! Have a nive Friday
