My Horse Profile

Paint Horse from Lyons, GA

TJ

About Me

Active within 1716 Days

I am from Lyons, GA and I've been a Club Horse member for 5 years, 1 month and 22 days

Nicknames: TJ, J-man

Age: 12 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Paint Horse

Height: 15 hands

Color: black and white

Type of Riding: I do a little trail riding with him, but he's still learning. He has done some cattle work before.

My Horse's Achievements: TJ was greenbroke when I met him. He has gone from bucking me off in the round pen when I kicked him into a trot to calmly taking on the trails behind our house. His mother, Sassy, threw my husband just a few minutes into our ride. TJ stood still, calm, and patient while Daniel worked with Sassy until she was calm and compliant. He would even sigh deeply or turn and gently mouth my boot, as if assuring me that he had no intention of acting that way.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: I bought him and my other horse Lexi (his little sister) a bag of peppermint treats for Christmas and he loved them!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: TJ is a goof-ball. He plays with anything that blows through the pasture. He has pulled my jacket off the round pen, thrown it in the air, and stomped it. He has pulled me out of the barn by my jacket, removed sunglasses and baseball caps, and he loves feet. He will also swim the large pond that borders the pasture on one side if his mother is taken from the pasture.

Pet Peeves: Doing anything he doesn't want to do. TJ is a sweet boy, but he can be hardheaded, too. If he doesn't like what he's been asked to do, he occasionally tries to buck the system. Fortunately, he corrects quickly and will respond well for the rest of the day.

How We Met

TJ, his mother, and his two sisters were owned by my husband's landlord before we got married. I loved them all, but TJ was always special.
We had discussed buying his two younger sisters from the landlord since all four horses had been left behind by his daughter, and my husband did buy Lexi for me, but I still secretly hoped that they would one day agree to sell us TJ. Then I found out our neighbor, who owns a large cattle herd and trains quarter horses to work them, very much wanted TJ. He had ridden him for 30 days and had worked some cattle with him, and he said TJ would be a great cattle horse. I tried not to let my disappointment show, and I started looking for another horse.
That Christmas, there was a saddle under our tree with my name on it, and my husband told me he had bought TJ for me for Christmas. I was ecstatic! I ran to the pasture in my bathrobe, which gave my husband a good laugh.

TJ is such a bad influence! lol He and his sister Lexi (who is never in trouble) swam the pond while we were gone, and they went up to the other pasture. Fortunately our landlord saw them and put them in the fence where they were safe.

Come visit me, Lexi & TJ.
