Vote 76 for PICKLES from Petite Fleur
Hi Piccolo!
Friday vote ! Sorry for the C&P but having guests and had to run down to the valley to the vet with my cat again! His anti scratch collar lasted 10 minutes and his instructions to stay inside lasted 2 hours! Too difficult with people coming and going! Have to run now and get my tables set and PF cared for! Sorry for this type blog

How are you doing? I'm sorry I haven't written for a few days. Tiny's birthday was on Monday last week and then she won dog of the day. I had 4 pages of her blogs to answer and this week has been so busy.

Last night I took Pippin out with the cart and Melian ran alongside. I've only tried this a couple of times before. Actually, only once without a group of people there. Well, both of them were just perfect.

They both obeyed everything I told them and Melian didn't pull on the lead but just ran nicely alongside. Pippin knows that when I say car that he has to go to the far right side and he'll do that automatically. I only have to say it once and he's there.

Well, I want Melian to automatically jump into the cart when a car comes. It is much safer there. The first time I tried to make her do that she absolutely did not want to do it. She pulled back and panicked. I thought that it was going to take me several training sessions to make this work but last night everytime I said car and then stopped Pippin she came right over and jumped into the cart with no hesitation whatsoever. She is pretty amazing and once she understands what I want she'll do it.

Tonight I took them again and a friend rode her bike. Pippin loves following bikes and sometimes he tries to bite them. So he was really eager to go and at several points we were galloping and Melian was easily running alongside. She did get a little carried away. The faster we went the more she growled in excitement. And the more she growled the faster Pippin went.

I thought that it might be hard to control, one hand with the reins, the other with the lead, but Pippin listened nicely and slowed down. Melian still needs to learn the quiet command. I guess we need to work on that. It takes some concentration to control the reins and a lead. I don't know how one drives a huge team of horses. That's a lot of rein.

And there's one more thing about the cart ride. Twice Melian needed to go potty while we were in the middle of a fast trot. Well, she doesn't give any warning but just suddenly stops and squats. Pippin was so good that he stopped instantly on my whoa and there wasn't even any pull on Melian's collar from the lead. He's a pretty good boy.

I rode Prince on Thursday. There were a couple of men there taking photos of my sister and me riding. Their owner wanted a photo of Prince jumping but he absolutely would not jump. He walked over them a few times and jumped a ground pole a couple of times but that was it. I think he may have been a little spooked because they were there. I guess it's a good thing we aren't expecting to showjump him!

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes and vote for Tiny. I appreciate it so much. Here's a vote for Piccolo. I hope you had a great weekend and I'm wishing you a wonderful week.

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

I AM SO HAPPY FOR PETITE FLEUR and HER SUPASSING HER 5,000 VOTE GOAL ! NEW ONE is 5,150 BY END OF SEPTEMBER! THAT would be a miracle! This early afternoon while the countryside was having their afternoon meal Petite Fleur and I walked around our road and I told her how proud I was of her. She did not have a bit in her mouth just a halter and lead ropes attached and she just walked smoothly and listened to me just talk to her softly. She turned without any cue and just stopped where she knew I wanted without asking. I am blessed to have her and YOU ! Thank you for being so kind! Well can’t go without a Wednesday VOTE!

So, how does Piccolo like his new draught herd mate? Tomorrow, Monday, is Tiny's birthday. She would have been 16. I miss her a lot but tomorrow is a celebration of her life and the wonderful years that we had together. I would really appreciate if you would stop by her page tomorrow with a note and a vote. If you can't leave a note because you don't have a profile on the DC then perhaps you could just leave a vote. Her number is 12997.

Thanks so much. And here's a vote for you.

Bayberry
What kind of a horse was Bayberry? Was he all paint or a cross? Have no idea what Waco is. He isn't registered, and I really don't have a background... Well, the previous owners told me some things I don't really believe, such as the... fact? that Waco was a cow horse who they bought for foxhunting but trained in Eventing instead -?- He's a good boy, though, so I can't complain.

Ah well, I guess that's about the way it goes. The occasion that you least want your horse to act up (a show), he seems to be on his worst behavior.

Hello!!
Would u like to be HC buddies? Now, I must warn u, I can only get on like once or twice a week because of high school-that gives alot of homework=(- and I run cross country. But anyways......
I have an Appy 2, named Traveller. I ride him Western, but he's trained to jump too. He will jump anything I point him at on the trail. I love the third picture below! It is sooo cool! U guys look amazing. Piccolo is sooo beautiful. He deserves a vote, so I left one!=D

So, is Piccolo still grumpy? I took Pippin for a walk last night and there's an irrigation ditch that runs through the forest. It's empty right now and he won't cross it. Well, I managed to persuade him to cross because I had a couple of dog biscuits in my pocket. I was so proud of him. I'll have to try it again.

It was twilight and he saw a big pile of logs in the forest. He had been acting all tough but those were scary and he hid behind me and peeked around my side. Big tough guy! I just laughed at him and then he went and sniffed them and decided that they were alright. He's not really spooky but I guess they took him by surprise.

Melian is doing great. The other evening we were sitting on the couch watching TV and Melian couldn't get comfortable on the couch. I guess the cushions weren't quite right and she was too hot. So, twice she tried to arrange herself and then looked at me forlornly and howled a deep hound howl. It was so funny. I finally made her a bed on the floor with a couple of blankets where she could stretch out to her heart's content. She is so funny sometimes.

I took her to the vet for a social visit a few days ago and it was really funny because she was terrified of three tiny little kittens. They were in a cage on the floor and she wouldn't go anywhere near it. One of them was looking at her! Oh no! I had to stand between her and the cage before she would pass.

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

P.S. I would really appreciate it if you would please vote for Melian daily in the cutest dog contest and ask your friends for votes too. I think we may have a chance this week. We need about 1500 votes by the end of the week. Here's the link and don't forget to remove the spaces.
