My Horse Profile

Quarter Horse from Aubrey, TX

Anson's Peppy Solette

About Me

Active within 1522 Days

I am from Aubrey, TX and I've been a Club Horse member for 4 years, 9 months and 5 days

Nicknames: Cinder

Age: 11 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Height: 15 hh

Color: Palomino - with ever changing shades LOL (Hopefully she'll keep the sooty/dark golden/dapple look - it's my fav!)

Type of Riding: Pleasure & eventually I'd like to try competitive trail. Maybe even do some open shows.

My Horse's Achievements: What's not to be proud of??? But really, she is the sweetest & most level-headed horse I have ever owned. She's a fast learner & really retains what she's learned. I'm very proud to be able to call myself Her Person :)

12/02/09 HOTD! Yay 4 Cinder!

My Horse's Favorite Treat: The apple-flavored kind & oh yea, dried carrot tops! Anything else she won't eat!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Eat apple treats & get her belly rubbed. Oh yes, let's not forget - she likes to put her front legs in the water trough on hot TX days & pull all kinds of things out of the brush caddy & toss them around when I'm not looking! LOL

Pet Peeves: Not getting ALL of the attention - she will even place herself between myself & another horse & chase the others away.
And then there's: "What do you mean you ran out of treats?!?"

My Horse's motto: Live each day as if it's your last, be thankful for the blessings you've been given & always end on a good note:)

How We Met

My husband & I were introduced to a gentleman that worked for Medeival Times & owned her at the time. He told me he had the perfect horse for me & he was absolutely right!!! At first though I wasn't sure because he told me he was using natural horsemanship methods with her, which was great, but then he went on to show us what he's done with her & he could send her away but she wouldn't come back to him!!! He had a tough time catching her. I thought to myself, "Oh fun, another horse you have to coax with a bucket of grain to catch." But it didn't take long & soon she was beating me to the gate! I've never had a horse that wanted to be with me so much that it would notice me pull up, whinny at me, & meet me at the gate or even leave it's feed to come see me! It is a wonderful feeling that I don't know how to describe. She truly is one of a kind - my ace in the hole!.

Okay, here it is, my (not so) mini blog.

I know that minis and ponies are supposed to be more susceptible to colic and founder but with a good diet and restriction from overeating I think that they're as healthy, if not healthier than their larger counterparts. Pippin hasn't been sick a day in his life. (Fingers crossed here. I don't want to jinx myself!)

The cost is minimal. He eats just over one bale of hay per year. When there is grass I graze him for about 2 hours per day. Definitely not more than 3. And he's tethered since with minis you don't have to worry about them getting into trouble with their strength and weight. He has about an acre of dry pasture in which to run. And run he sure does. He loves to go all out.

And they certainly don't need grains or other food supplements. The only other thing I give him is a selenium supplement because it is lacking in our area. And he eats alfalfa pellets. Minis can't digest the large stalks that can be found in alfalfa hay. So, he eats grass hay and alfalfa pellets.

And he gets lots of exercise. That is always key too. I think many minis are pasture ornaments which is why they can be prone to health issues.

How is your husband doing? I hope he is healing well and fast. Here's a vote for you. Have fun with Cinder.

thanx! mente was a great horse! i'm sorry i haven't posted back; i don't check his page as often as peanuts. peanut has just returned from the brink of death:peanuts all good! apparently she had broken her knee when she was younger, but it was never fixed! so now, a bone chip from that was stuck in her leg; thats why she was limping and wouldn't pick up that leg. her vet had misdiagnosed her sayin her hoof was the problem. thank you sooooooooo much 4 thinkin about her! she will probably be back home by sunday. o, an it was funny: yesterday i thought it was my last day with peanut. when i came up 2 her stall, she had been rubbing her butt against the stall door, and her tail was stuck in the hinge. when she tried 2 turn around, her tail wouldn't come out, so she grabbed it with her teeth and pulled all of it out of her tail! now i have a huge bunch of her tail hair. i'm havin it made in2 a bracelet. sorry that was a kinda c/p but i had a lot 2 type:) how r u? how was Christmas and New Years? have u been ridin? sorry 4 all the questions:) voted=]

I had planned a quick walk, perhaps 15 minutes, just to blow some steam off them, but it turned into more and we all really enjoyed it.

How's everything there? Did you get more snow? I hope you have a wonderful and happy new year and I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. I hope he feels better soon. Thank you for the condolences for Minnie. We really miss her. Here's a vote for you. ttyl

P.S. Please remind me to tell you about minis and to answer your questions. I'm planning to write to you properly about this but it's late and I have to get up at 5am.

How are you doing? It finally snowed here and we have about 6 inches. It's the perfect amount, just enough to be really pretty, especially at night with the Christmas lights glittering off every facet and the almost full moon illuminating everything else. But not too much so that we're snowed in or have to shovel much. It's cold enough that the roads are still covered in snow but it's drivable if one doesn't speed.

Yesterday evening I decided to take both Pippin and Melian on a walk. Melian was loose and I had Pippin on his lead. He was pretty good in the forest and we were going at a nice amble as he dragged his nose through the snow and grabbed mouthfuls every now and then. I saw quite a few hare footprints though I haven't seen a hare in quite some time. I know Melian would love to chase one or two.

Then we came out on the road and I wanted to run a bit so that he could let off some steam. He was raring to go and the feel of the snow under his feet put a bounce into his step and he pranced along trotting and then went into a really nice canter.

Suddenly he stopped at the sight of a child! He lifted his head and flared his nostrils and had that stallion stare stance down pat. The child's grandmother came out and called her in. I suppose she thought that Pippin was going to eat her or something. Or perhaps she was worried at the sight of me, all bundled up and looking like a tramp or worse.

Anyway, that threat gone Pippin relaxed and suddenly in the middle of the road he lay down and rolled for awhile in the shallow snow. I'm glad no cars were coming because they would have had to wait while he played out his fun. We walked some more and then we turned around and ran back down the road.

Melian was having the time of her life in her first snow. I decided that it couldn't hurt to let them run together so when we got back to the forest I let Pippin loose and he and Melian took turns chasing each other. And sometimes Pippin would run after me. I saw a really nice fallen tree, about 2 feet high and I ran towards it and jumped over hoping that Pippin would follow. He did and he jumped over it so effortlessly. Remember, he's only 6 inches taller than that. They ran some more and Melian kept bringing him back to me. Except when he turned around and chased her. Then she'd hightail it out of his way.

He took the opportunity and ran over to the neighbour's horses. I figured he might decide to do that so I followed his footprints in the snow. It was misty by now and as I walked down the road towards him I could see his hazy shape prancing back and forth across the road from horse to horse. He was having the time of his life. By the time I got there he was busy chewing on a gelding's nose while the gelding chewed on his face. He didn't want to leave but he was easy to catch and we headed back through the forest, over a rickety wooden plank that spanned a ditch, and back home.

It's a snow storm here!! LOL!!
The horses are loving it tho...Lady is doing great, she was running like a wild, young, crazy horse out in the snow. I just realized how much teeth she gots for her age. Im glad I've only had her teeth floated once. My mom told me a story about her friend that had a senior horse, and she floated her horse's teeth like three times a year...and than ran out of teeth to float, so they had to put him down at the age of 23yr. =[
I hope the power doesn't go out...its really snowing here...ttyl~mj and lady

I'm glad you liked Pippin's YouTube videos. Yes, he sure can run. I'm sorry that I haven't written for a couple of weeks. It's a very busy time of year and I've been running around like a headless chicken. I haven't ridden this week and I didn't get a chance last week either. But I have driven Pippin a few times and done a few more races with Melian. Of course, she always wins with ease now.

We lost another of our dogs last week so our Christmas will be a little sad as a first without either Tiny and now Minnie. Minnie was my sister's dog but we were close and I took care of her just as much. She went blind suddenly on the 13th and then went into liver failure. We all miss her so much.

But there is happy news too. My sister couldn't be without a dog so she already has a new puppy. He's a little Yorkshire Terrier with a touch of Maltese and she named him Kermit. He's so adorable and feisty and he and Melian were instant friends at first sight. She's literally 10 times his size but she plays with him and is ever so gentle. And Kermit wandered over to Pippin today so they've also met. Pippin doesn't seem to mind him. I think Melian thinks that Kermit is the best Christmas present ever.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with all of your family and friends close by you. Leaving you a special Christmas vote.

Here's a Wednesday vote.
Sorry, I have not been on lately...very busy!!
So Tuesday, I had my riding lesson. I rode Echo and we didnt really do much because there was alot of new beginner students. We did the basics and played musical stalls and practiced the key hole(my time was 12.25 seconds). And the one of the new girls fell off, but she wasnt hurt, it was her first time cantering a horse.
I had fun tho. Lady is doing good, she has been sleeping laying down alot and I hope to gets so pics of her doing that. She so cute!! I have not rode her in a while caz of bad weather =[ I wish I had an indoor arena...
Oh, all most forgot to tell you guys... Have you ever heard of mini pigs?? My family is going to start raising\breeding mini pigs in the spring (and chickens too)!! Well, I hope you guys are doing good. I got to go get ready for ANOTHER suprise B-day party for my BFF Gracie, she's turning 13yr. Friday. So yeah, wish me luck that this goes out well. TTYL`Mia @ Lady`
