My Horse Profile

Appendix Quarter Horse from Poulsbo, WA

Sammie ~"Into Thin Air"

About Me

Active within 1613 Days

I am from Poulsbo, WA and I've been a Club Horse member for 4 years, 11 months and 1 day

Nicknames: ~I call her the little bratt(Only when she's getting into stuff and is being naughty), we havent decided for SURE what her show name/register name will be, but I am pretty confident with "Into Thin Air"~

Age: 9 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Appendix Quarter Horse

Height: ~We havent measured her yet but she probably is a good 15 hands, maybe 15.2, round there~

Color: ~Chestnut~

Type of Riding: ~Still in training, but we're teaching her to rein a bit, so it'll be easier for her to turn lightly yet to conquer any discipline. But I typically want to teach her to do halter, western pleasure, and hunters flats, to start with. Good thing shes a dream at halter!!!~

My Horse's Achievements: ~Sammie let me on her back within just a 3 weeks of training her and was taught to turn on the hindquarters on the 4th day of riding her!! Talk about a fast learner! She follows me everywhere and excepts me as a true leader, she turns on the hindquarters and forehand from the ground, can backup around halfway around the arena like a dream!! Now she is progressing on sidepassing from the ground. That's pretty good for a 4 year old that's not being proffesionally trained!!~

My Horse's Favorite Treat: ~Well my Uncle never gave his horses treats for a reward, so it took a while just to get her to like cookie treats, but other than that she does'nt like any other treats.She tried a carrot for the first time though... Yet she spit it out~

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: ~To act like she's big macho man around the other horses yet she could never control them, other than that she loves to run around like crazy!!~

Pet Peeves: ~Hates when your aids or cues are not clear enough and becomes frustrated~

My Horse's motto: ~If it is green it is lean~

How We Met

~My uncle breeds Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds, and does the little chucks with them, one of his racing mares (Speck) gave birth to Sammie. Since the day she was born my uncle has been doing tons of halter work with her so he could give her to me, and that she would be easier to train. We're not exactly sure, but we THINK that she is a cross of Thoroughbred and American Quarter Horse.~

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.” (Edwin Way Teale)

Please view the video tribute in Horse Vidos: PIXIE DUST: IN MEMORY OF JOANNA, which was submitted by Pippin's family (profile #11626) In honor of our friends: Joanna Wicke her horses, Pixie Dust (profile #101958), & Brisco (profile # 140827), and her family.

Fancy is leaving a vote for you this Friday morning.

King Kong was very bad yesterday. King did not want to listen to my brother and my brother's friend wanted to help, so he got on King. While my brother's friend was riding King the horse reared and they fell back. He is ok, only suffered whiplash and soreness. We don't know what got into King. When he reared, there was no bit pressure at all. So he could have moved in any direction and he chose up :(

Fancy was very good. My son has ridden her. He has gotten bored riding in the corral, so we walk around the block and through the car wash. My son loves to ride her. He would like me to turn him lose. But I don't think Fancy or my son are ready for that. Because she is still very young and I know my son does not have experience in case something did frighten her. But so far she has been so wonderful on his rides out. I don't take that for granted and I pray that she remains steady.
What are you up to on the last Friday in September?

Fancy & I love all of our HorseChannel friends and we hope you guys will stop by her page to vote each day in October so Fancy can be your November HOTM.

PEACE STARTS WITH A SMILE;~)
HAVE A BLESSED DAY ♥

Fancy and I leave a vote for you in honor of today being our first year together!!! Fancy got her morning grooming and some ground work then I handwalked her around the neighborhood and let her eat grass. What a lovely day! We hope you all are able to enjoy this blessed day with peace, wellness and joy. You all are the sweetest, thanks for being our friends!

Fancy is leaving you a Friday vote with a little humour to start your wonderful weekend!!!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
Dear Horse Owner:

Are you experiencing too many second and third
finishes behind enferior horses at horse shows?
During a trail ride, does your horse forget
everything he was bred to do?

Well, this simple chain letter is meant to bring
relief and happiness to you. Unlike most chain
letters, it doesn't cost any money.

Simply send a copy to six other horse owners who
are dissatisfied with the way that their horse is
behaving. Also, bundle up your horse and send
him/her to the horse owner at the top of list. Do not
use a return adress or the post office may try to
contact you.

In one week you should receive 16,436 horses, and
at least one of them should be a keeper.

Have faith in this. Do not break the chain. One
owner broke the chain and got his own horse back.

Good Luck!

Good morning vote for ya. I groomed Fancy this morning and cleaned her stall before I fed her. Now it's after 1pm and it's snowing pretty hard.

I won't be posting me brother's yearling filly after all. This man couldn't feed all of his horses, so he gave my brother a yearling last month. My brother lost his job so he gave her to a friend. Right now she is sick, only eating a little and sometimes she won't stand up. He had a vet check her and said to make a sling to hold her up and keep trying to feed her.

Hi, here's a vote from Fancy. We made it to the middle of this week without a day of school due to the snow. Maybe it will be warm enough today to clear more of the back roads. I sure would have loved to ride Fancy in the snow. Hopefully we will get the chance in years to come.
Please vote for HOTD: Masters horse#154980 and
Zippin the Dust horse #167617

HI, thanks for the vote, left you one. I finally got to talk to my mom today. She sounded terrible, and she says she feels really terrible. Her heart still isn't beating correctly, so they are going to shock it again tomorrow!

I helped clean stalls this morning. Toby is doing really good. I gave him a big hug, he hugged me back. I might try to ride sometime this week, just depends on how my mom is. I am too stressed right now to ride.

Just daydreaming about riding this spring and thinking: I only have my little "Fancy" horse right now and I think I will really enjoy riding her this spring, but if you have access to more than one, please tell me which is your favorite to ride and why, if you are like me and only have one, I would like to know what you like most about that one.
Tuesday while I fed Fancy she stood at the gate and when I went to exit she tried to follow me. I knew it, she wants to go out with me,LOL. It was barely over 30 degrees so I promised her a better day. Fancy got her better day Wednesday! We have had such cold days Wednesday felt like spring and it was just in the 40's. I cleaned up, groomed her, went over some of our old lessons, which to my surprise she did right off, just like we never missed a day at doing them. Then her favorite, we went out. Fancy leaves you an 'it has been a Better day' vote!

~~!!Please Read!!~~
You might be wondering, why does Lady deserve Horse of The Month??

She is the very first horse I've ever owned!!
The day I got her I was so excited!! She was standing out side my bed room window, and as I was running out side to see my new horse...NOT WATCHING WHERE I WAS GOING....
I fell down the stairway!! LOL!! (I was not hurt)
That is probly one of the happiest day of my life, the day I got my horse, Lady Macho.
This coimg March 10th. 2010, we will be officially
together for 10 years!! wow!! 10 very happy years!!
We have been through so much together!! She was not what you call a beginners horse when I got her...But I did evenually learn to ride on this retired show champion,(who was never even ridden outside the arena). Lady being a older horse means there is alot of things I cant do with her, like showing and bareback riding..etc, but that doesnt mean I dont love her any less. I would love her even if she was unridable!! Also...she's going to be 28yr. April 27th!!
Through the past years, Lady has had FIVE near death experiences....she was in a trailer accident(2004)...she was very very under weight and not eating at all(2006)....her liver was failing(2007)...she got her head stuck in the stall frame(2008)...she fell down and could not get up(2009) (we had to call people to help her back on her feet)...all those times I truely though she was going to die, but the good Lord was with her the whole time.
Lady is now in the best shape ever, and is eating like a pig. Im hoping to have her for a good six more years, and who knows maybe she'll brake the world record for the oldest horse!! lol!! (I think its 56yr. idk..)
Lady is the best thing that has ever happened to me!! She has tought me so much, and she is such a loving horse. I would not trade her for a million dallors!!

It makes me cry because this girl (from my old school) use to make fun of me for keeping and riding such an old horse(her family owns like 25 YOUNG horses). And she would always brag about all the horse shows she has entered and won with her horses... knowing that I have always wanted to show but couldnt -_-
I know ALOT of people who dont like old horses....

I love my horse, now and forever. Even if she donest win HOTM, I will still love her (and HC, of course).
Everything I worte is 100% true.
This is why I think Lady deserves HOTM.
Thanks so much for reading,voting, bloging, and making us feel appart of something very special. Thanks HorseChannel.com BFFs, for everything!!

Come visit me, Lady.
