My Horse Profile

Mustang from Conklin, MI

Jake

About Me

Active within 1791 Days

I am from Conklin, MI and I've been a Club Horse member for 7 years, 5 months and 15 days

Nicknames: goofy boy, fuzz, the left-footed wonder

Age: 18 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Mustang

Height: 14.3

Color: strawberry roan (looks more like one in the summer) white under belly, with four white socks, 3 white, and 1 black hoof

Type of Riding: western pleasure, hosremanship, bareback, showmanship, down and back, poles, barrels, and flag races

My Horse's Achievements: he was neglected as a colt, and we think he got his hoof stuck in a wire fence (right hoof), leaving him w/ a permenet scare, leaving him w/ a permanet "pinky" on his right fore. after we bought him, only then did we find out his weakness. two years later, with a little help, and a great amount fo trust, he has distigushed a difference between the two. being somewhat gaited makes it all that more difficult we think he's part Rocky mountain pony and some Arabian. now he isn't as coordinated as others yet, but he can take the right lead.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: jellybeans, sweethearts, and lettuce

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: go on trail rides by himself, spending time wih me, and going to shows

Pet Peeves: being left in a stall when, his buddies are out of site,
being washed, being fed by someone he doesn't trust
being tied to a hitching post

My Horse's motto: the road may be long and hard, give it all you got and never give up!

my dad has my ag teacher and his son to come hunting up here, but his son is in football and we're in the playoffs so they haven't been able to come hunting yet, but i'm kinda nervous with jake being in the same pasture as the hunters, he's a bit spooky when somthing is in the same pasture as him...i run my goats when i'm riding question. well i'm glad jake is working out for u,and good luck with your training him!

well jake was doing great, but then he broke his bridle and so i'd been looking for the longest time for a nylon bridle and i finally found one, so now i'm having to go back teach jake a few things. i've been ridng question alot and he's doing great! i haven't had time to ride jake because i've been running my show goats on qeustion, since he knows how to work them and he won't step on them like jake...overall everything and everybody is doing ok, all three of my boys are getting shaggy coats, welp here's a vote so ttyls!

thats so cool!
to ride for the 1st time,[not to be a cleich`e but,,]wild and free, not knowing wether he was going to buck, or just let you be. wether he was gonna dump you or hope that you hold on! it would be so fun! that sorta like my 1st time on minnie bareback, except that i knew she was gonna run. having ridden her once before, i well knew she'd run. it never came into my head that she'd buck though. my friend went 1st on her bareback, and minnie did a lil crow hop, but still after seeing that i never even imagine she'd do anything but run. and she didnt. all she did was just lope. minnie just amazes me everyday. even though i dont see her every day, i amstill amaze by the amount of trust and love we're able to put into eachother and how blessed we are to be on this earth. i know that we WERE meant to be together from minnie's 1st day of life it was all planned out. it was destiny. ya know at the top of her blaze, you can see the letters "M C" for cat and mouse. minnie is just my other half, and i'd give anyhting for her1<3 i g2g, ttyl!

Good looking horse
That's great all the work you've put into him. It's really gratifying to see a horse you put so much work into blossom and do well. He's a handsome horse. Great conformation for a mustang. Thanks for the comments on Thumper.

Response to Phantoms message.
I do some showing with him in english riding. Though, around the house Western plessure is our favorite. He is so awesome. I think your horse is beautiful even if he isn't purebred. I dont think judges should be able to go by that. All horses are beautiful even if they arent full bred. Keep showing, and thank you for the compliments.

He is beautiful. He is lucky to have you. I have saved several horses over the years. Duke and Dori are two of my favorite rescues.

barn sour
it's me again, i just got a questin for you, i'd like to trail ride on Jake, but he's got this little problem with barn sour, and i was wondering if you've got any ideas, i see that you trail ride with your Jake and both of our jakes seem seem to be almost the same, lol, so if you've got any suggestions, i'm all open. thankz.

Goats n' Horses
that's pretty funny, i was just really suprised that he'd never seen a cow before, where i live it's cattle country, but he'd never been around them. i've been trying to retrain him, he hasn't been ridin in a year, and so i've gotta remind him a couple of things. He's great until he sees a calf, and he acts like their gonna jump him! He's coming around, he's a great babysitter when my dads cows need a babysitter, lol...

Buffalo and Jake
When we first unloaded Jake from the trailer, he'd never seen a cow or a buffalo before, he'd been pinned up with horses and goats. So when he saw those buffalo, he reared up and ran the other direction! The other two equine really don't have much to do with our calves, goats, or the buffalo, because they've been raised on cattle ranches. Jake though wasn't, he didn't ever have to chase them or have to catch and pull them around, so he looks at buffalo and baby calves like they are his friends.

I've gotta a Jake
That's asome that you rescued Jake, it's very annoying when people just give up on a horse and say they can't do this and they won't be worth messing with. I'm glad you didn't give up on him. you need to come visit my Jake.

GUs and I rode yesterday and i practically hung out with him all day. I love just sitting on him bareback when he is out in our little pasture. Gus and I havn't shown yet but maybe this summer. We live so far away from anything so it is really hard to find time and a place. i have shown before on other horses but nothing big. just a few shows here and there.

hi
well, even if he isn't a true mustang, it is awesome that you saved him. I hate it when people don't take care of their horses and then expect them to obey them. It is awful and cruel and I don't think that they should be aloud to have animals. I totally agree with you and if I could, I would try to save every horse out there that is in that situation.

Right Lead
You are right. I am not sure why he would need to know how to take the right lead. I just think it would be fun to teach him. I am still trying to figure out how to teach him some dressage too. Maybe I can have a miniature Viennese horse. It would be cute.

It is awesome that you saved him. It is really sad how many mustangs are being killed these days and how many have already been killed. I hope that one day I can save some too! He is adorable! Good for you!

Goats
We have goats too. We milk them. Pippin's pen is right next to our goats and they like each other's company. I would like to teach Pippin to take the right lead but I'm not sure how to do that from the ground.

Thanks for visiting Pippin. He is actually a roan too but his colour is still developing as he is so young. I am glad that you rescued Jake from his terrible situation. It sounds as though you have been working with him a lot, and that he is making progress.
