My Horse Profile

Appaloosa Horse from Calistoga, CA

Darling- Thank you all for the HOTD and kind words

About Me

Active within 820 Days

I am from Calistoga, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 8 years, 10 months and 6 days

Nicknames: Her nickname from me is Boo face (she has such a cute face). My mom calls her Sweet Pea, and my mom's horse friend calls her Squeaky.

Age: 38 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Appaloosa Horse

Height: 14.3 hh

Color: Dark bay with black mane and tail, and a few white flecks on her rump because of her Appaloosa (though she has quarter horse in her also.)

Type of Riding: I used to do trail riding, gymkhanas, western pleasure classes...she was pretty much an all-around horse. Now she isn't ridden any more, but is enjoying a nice retirement.

My Horse's Achievements: When we got her, she was pretty much bomb-proof, but I'm very proud of all the blue ribbons she won for me. (I couldn't have got them without her.)

My Horse's Favorite Treat: SHe loves Senior Equine, but used to like carrots a lot back when she could chew better.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: She used to like riding on trials. But now she is retired and just likes eating her Senior Equine.

Pet Peeves: She doesn't like it when she doesn't get enough Senior Equine. She nickers and paws, hoping for more.

My Horse's motto: Same motto as with my horse Pops, but also: Love your horse while you can because they don't live forever. (Sadly, Darling is in her last days.)

How We Met

We went to a 4-H meeting thing, and our leader brought us to a horse place where horses were for sale. She was one of the horses that the kids got to ride. And although I got to ride another mare instead, my mom and sister liked Darling better. And since my family was planning on getting a family horse, we bought her. Because I rode her nearly every day that first summer, and liked her the most, she basically became my horse (my siblings lost interest in her).

Thank you so much for 7/11 HOTD everyone.

**MY SWEET DARLING is no longer with us. I apologize for not letting all you wonderful HC people know sooner, but it was too hard to actually get around to it. And as I type this, it is still real hard. But it's better for all to know now. She passed away on Tuesday, Nov. 2. The vet said it was a matter of weeks before she'd really suffer. He told us the winter would take a toll on her since she was already so thin and not eating her hay anymore. Within the last few weeks, she was barely eating her grain, but at the same time, seemed happy and eager to get her grain at first. Despite this, my parents said it was time, and the vet agreed, so I had to lose my girl.
To Darling: I love you Darling, and thanks for being the best first horse anyone could want, and always giving your all for me, even to the end. I miss you, and the boys do too.

**THANK YOU all so much for the HOTD 11/10/10. It was very special to see that she is truly loved everywhere, and all of your sweetnesses and kind words are much appreciated. Thanks so much everyone...**

Please keep the Sandy Hook Elementary School community in Newtown, Connecticut in prayer. Also pray for the safety of all children, for evil does not respect boundaries.

Matthew 2:16-18
16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men.
17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:
18 "A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more."

An Easter Monday vote from Fancy. Sounds like everyone enjoyed this blessed holiday. Fancy enjoyed Easter munching hay and playing, while the humans in our family spent Sunday with my Mom.

Angel Petite Fleur #107376, page is closing at the end of this month. Angel Petite was Fancy's very fist HC friend and we will miss her dearly. LOVE ALWAYS TO A SWEET MARE.

"Round-hoof'd, short-jointed, fetlocks shag and long,
Broad breast, full eye, small head and nostril wide,
High crest, short ears, straight legs and passing strong,
Thin mane, thick tail, broad buttock, tender hide;
Look, what a horse should have he did not lack,
Save a proud rider on so proud a back."
(William Shakespeare)

Vote 1047 in honor of Angel Petite Fleur's 3 month anniversary today since she died. I do not have any HC pages, the memorial page has her photos and photos of Cara, Graffiti and will have Felix and other horses in my life all combined. Please feel free to leave a message or if you want my e mail I will send it to you on request. I think of Darling and how you must feel. I watched the video "Christmas in Heaven" and cried like a baby today. I am now going to put flowers where she passed away.

1,045 for my favorite Angel with Tirnanog in HEAVEN! Mom sees your photo and gets so sad! She took flowers to PF today next to her last breath of life! She has her(adopted) mare the Arabian Cara and the trotter Graffiti to keep her happier! They stay at her side all the time she takes flowers to where Angel PF died before Christmas. Mom will ride the Arabian mare Cara this April!

1043 DARLING from Petite Fleur
Mom is crying as she types this because you & I passed within a month of each other! I was only 13 years and had cancer no one knew about till too late. Wasn't our "Christmas in Heaven" video a beautiful tribute? Mom cries every time! BUT today shehad a special surprise she was waiting for, a baby Golden Retriever was born this morning so Angel Samson (the Lab) andAngel Petite Fleur will assist in her choice for the right pal! Thinking of you and hope the Boys are okay♥

I wanted to stop by and see how you're doing. I know it's not easy losing a horse. Such sadness on here lately though. Losing two more of our HC horses one after the other. We will never forget Darling, Tirnanog, and Petite Fleur.

Things have been so busy around here. And mid November I badly sprained my wrist and could hardly type. We had a power outage and I was messing with the generator. It's pretty heavy and in the process of tipping it over my hand gave way. It was an old injury waiting to happen so I guess I'm not too surprised. At least I have my typing fingers back.

I have to tell of this magical horsey experience on Sunday. 4 friends and I went biking. It was very foggy and cold and the fog was sticking to use and making us look eerily ghost-like. We were speeding along at a good clip down the road when suddenly I heard the sound of stampeding hooves.

I turned my head and suddenly out the twilit fog came a herd of white and grey horses intermingled with a few chestnuts and bays. They were snorting and breathing the fog like a dragon breathes fire. They galloped alongside us for a minute or so and the whole time we were just looking at them with awe. It was so beautiful and utterly magical. My friends aren't horsey but they felt the magic of that moment too.

I wanted to take some photos but decided against it because it was twilight and my pocket camera doesn't do well in dim lighting. But forever I will have etched in my mind that image of them first bursting out of the whiteness of the fog. Breathtaking!

They are the same horses that star in Pippin's Love. His YouTube hit movie. Talking of Pippin, he's doing a bit better though he's still in steroids for his swelling. It's been 3 months now since that started. And I saw Jewel on Thursday and I was quite taken aback at how well she has healed. All that remains of that awful wound is a 4 inch narrow line. I suspect that there will be no sign of injury when it's all healed.

How are you all doing? Getting ready and excited for Christmas? It's a wonderful time of year. Leaving a vote for you.

Come visit me, Eddie (In Loving Memory), Prince & Pippin (Gone too soon).

Dear Angel Darling
Tears are in my horse eyes, my dog does my blogs and told me it was time for you to go. You are such a good girl, and your human girl is so sad. How hard to say goodbye to you, she loves you so very much I can tell. I am thankful you had a long and good life here on earth with such a loving family and herd. Peace be with your humans, knowing that you trot the green grassy pastures as an angel horse. Love and a vote, Cassie

i'm so sorry for your lose and i know how you feel when i was 10 my neighbor had a horse named Navaho and he died and i loved him so much until he died from being tangled in barbed wire while he was being trained to be saddle ridden and he was only 5 years old. He was a Appaloosa. He was so sweet and i loved him so much. I was at my moms house and my dad called me up and told me that something happened and he said my Navaho died and since then i go around the pasture or even on the other side of the fencing looking for barbed wire. I never want that to happen to strutter because if it does I loved him so much and i'm sorry for your lose.
