My Horse Profile

Haflinger from Portage, MI

Maxwell Smart

About Me

Active within 1324 Days

I am from Portage, MI and I've been a Club Horse member for 4 years, 7 months and 5 days

Nicknames: Maxie, Max, Maxeroni, Maxer, Mr. Smart (I named him after the old Get Smart series, maybe I should get a 99...)

Age: 11 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Haflinger

Height: 14 hands and 1/2 an inch.

Color: Dappled flaxen chestnut with a large star and snip.

Type of Riding: I do dressage, but right now I'm still looking for a saddle to fit my wide boy. But definitely our favorite is bareback. He absolutely loves it! (as do I!)

My Horse's Achievements: When I got him, he was a 6 year old that was spoiled and not broke and now, 3 months later, we are doing side passes, half passes, and turns on the forehand...and loving it!

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Grain, glorious, Grain!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Eat, go on bareback rides, give pony rides to little children (he is so gentle and he loves the treats they give him; he takes them like a gentleman!), play and hang out in the pasture with me. :)

Pet Peeves: Really windy days, cantering on a longe line, bossy geldings who won't share their grain!

My Horse's motto: I ride FOR Jesus, I ride WITH Jesus, and PRAISE JESUS I RIDE!!!

Please vote Fancy for VHS Baby Face Contest♥
Here is a vote from Fancy!

Monday evening I went out to spend some quality time with Fancy") I really needed that. We practiced some leg yields and backing with me in the saddle. Fancy was pretty good with the backing. It took a few attempts before she understood the leg yields. It takes a few tries but each time she does them better than the last time. After a few minutes I let her graze and just enjoy some quiet time together.
My saddle is very comfy with the new adjustments. It is easy to keep my heels down and I am not reaching for the stirrup! That felt good! I can't wait to use them for a longer ride and see how my knees feel.

Are you and your best equine pal doing anything special this week?

PLEASE VOTE DECEMBER HOTM;)

Gotta Saturday Night vote for you! I hope you have had as much fun as we have today! Today was bath day for Fancy. After her bath my son (on his bike) and I hand walked Fancy around the block. We let her graze before going home. I saddled Fancy and I rode her around the neighborhood and through the car wash:), while my son rode his bike. She surprised me by walking sooo slow the whole time. I couldn't believe it. I didn't even have to fight with her to go into our yard. She was just layed back and easy going! I was just surprised! I took tons of photos with my clean girl. Now she smells fresh too! I hated to put her into her corral. I hope she doesn't roll tonight:( I will see about that in the morning, LOL.

I entered Fancy in the Virtual Horse/Baby Face contest. Please vote for her.

A city slicker moves to the country and decides he's going to start farming. He goes to the local farmer and says,"Give me 100 baby chickens." The farmer complies.

"Wow!", the farmer replies. "You must really be doing well."
"Naw", said the man with a sigh."I'm either planting them too deep or too far apart!"

Good Morning vote from Fancy and Frances♥
How are you today, did you have a nice weekend?

I would like to keep my Fancy shoe free, so I am considering purchasing hoof boots for Fancy. If anyone has any experience with these, please let me know about that. I would like to know about the ease of putting them on, if they come off easily in mud, how long they last, if they rub sores on the horses coronet or other area, did they have any effect on the hoof itself, do you think they are a good investment, and just any info you can share.
If you have anything to share or not I would like to personally thank you for giving me your attention and let you know I appreciate every friendly member I have met here. You are top notch horse lovers, the greatest!
Have a Beautiful Day, Be Blessed♥

Thanks to everyone for telling me about which horse(s) you like the most. They were heartwarming stories of love, which I enjoyed reading about the wonderful qualities of your favorite horses and so did others.
It is 18 degrees outside right now and Fancy acts like it's fine with her. I guess it's a good thing she has a good insulation of fat! Well to me it's just freezing! I won't be doing anything horsey outside today, with the expected high only in the low 30s. Hope you fare better in the weather dept. Fancy and Frances stopping by with a vote for you, have a great weekend!

Bishop was that way with me the little time that I had him. Fancy seems to be heading in that direction. When my husband handles her she looks for me and acts up trying to get away and she settles down when i am with her again. She started out not liking any humans and I spent so much time with her and being good to her and she seems to love me in return and she does whatever i ask her and tries wonderfully to please me. I love her for that because she could be the kind that cares less about what a human wants. I am excited for this spring because we will see just how far she will go for and with me when i start to ride her. I think I have blessed with her and by her presence. God knows that i need her in my life and he knows what i need her to be. I also enjoy having one horse here because i can spend all my time with her and while she is in training that is important.Fancy and Frances are leaving you a Fabulous Friday vote. Have a great weekend!

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.

Actually...I have no clue what breed he is. Dales was my best guess. :D I've always thought Haflinger's were pretty. At the barn (I go hang out even though FUdgison isn't boarded), there's a (fat) Haflinger. But she's not palomino, more like buckskin-ish. Always thought that was weird...:D

I totally agree. God is AWESOME! :D by the way.

We are waiting on more rain today:0 I am having a time tying Fancy out. The ground is so wet Everytime I tie her out she makes a moat, a ditch, a wadding pool, a cess pool, etc,LOL:) Aside of the cold, wet, rainy, snowy, weather--Fancy and Frances have given you a "Most Wonderful Time of the Year" vote cause it is bright, wintery, and Christmasy!!!

Our family decorated the tree yesterday, my baby boy really enjoyed this! But I couldn't find my outside decorations:( Fancy was so sweet when I went to feed her. She rears and twirls around when she sees me coming in her direction. And I wondered if it was a test of "Whose in Charge", I discovered by her actions when I get to her, she only misses me and wants me near. Because when I get there she is submisive and sooo sweet, when I get to her she gently blows into my nostrils, which means she accepts me. And I blow back, then puts her head close to me and she is just sooo sweet.

How does your horse greet you? Here is a "Christmas day will be here before you know it" vote.

Hi Maxie, I love your personality. You can adjust yourself to the riders, that's a very smart horse. Yes, I have always owned Palomino's and only two other horse were not gold. One I bred and he turned out to be a dunn. He was a good horse. he liked trail riding better than being a show horse. H.T. is very head strong when he wants, but as shows, it was all business. He's retired from riding now. And Indy is very mellow, but you have to really push him along, He's so mellow that he would rather do nothing but walk all day long. he makes you work when you ride him, but he's also only five years old and very lazy, that's why I purchased him. I was tired of lungeing for half an hour to ride all the time. H.T. always had a ton of energy. I don't miss that anymore. Like them quiet.
