My Horse Profile

Gypsy Horses from Elk River, MN

Barthel's Lil Doll (Dolly)

About Me

Active within 604 Days

I am from Elk River, MN and I've been a Club Horse member for 4 years, 8 months and 18 days

Nicknames: Dolly girl

Age: 10 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Gypsy Horses

Height: 14.1 hands

Color: Black and White (Piebald)

Type of Riding: We're starting to do more western riding and we will soon be working on our driving training.

My Horse's Achievements: Dolly and her first colt won champion in the mare and foal class, but beyond that, Dolly is very in touch with people with special needs. she can sense if a person wants to share space with her or if they only want to look at her and not have her in their space. If they only want to look, she keeps her self out of their comfort space, if they want to be hands on, she will lay her head right in their lap or chest to be there for them. It is a very heartwarming action to watch.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: butterscotch or pepermint lifesavers and apples, she really likes pizza

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: likes to go to the county fairs, horse expo's and other gatherings where people can pet and oooo and ahhhh over her.

Pet Peeves: Not being with me.

My Horse's motto: If you can dream it, They can do it!

How We Met

I saw her as a foal on a website and I kept looking at her for about 4-5 months and finally jumped in my truck and drove 16 hours to go see her. Yep, she came home with me..

This is a 'cold wet day' vote from Fancy:) We were hoping to spend some time with the new horsey and get to name him this weekend. But I don't know if the weather is going to cooperate. It is very cold and rainy here, and is expected to continue through the weekend.

CONGRATULATIONS FEBRUARY HOTM PIPPIN #11626!!!!!

This has been a long and very tiring day and then to check HC and see my brother's horse HOTD!!!!! I am so excited!!! What a lovely way to end this day!!! You guys are the best friends ever. I feel like I know many of you personally and I do. LOL. Even though I have not met you in person.

I took a list of names to my brother last night when I went to change Mom's bandages. My brother is very excited about all the great names. I had to call him and tell him there were more great names added through this day!!!! We should be able to chose something that will fit him perfectly! Thanks, you all are the greatest, and I mean that from my very heart!!!!!!!
Fancy hasn't met the new horse yet. I was waiting to let my brother get to know him a little and know that he is listening to my brother before I introduce Fancy to him, because I don't want any instances (he is still a stallion for the time being)
I can't wait till I have stories of our adventures to share with you! YOU know I will, LOL ;~)

This is an icy vote from Fancy. Tuesday morning when I went out to feed Fancy, she started running around and I could hear her every foot fall on the ice. It was like music to my ears, she was so spirited!
I finally got to visit Mom today at the hospital, she is gaining strength and she hates the food there. Again, Thanks for all your Love and Prayers.

Dolly sounds beautiful inside and out. And she has the greatest little babies ever! I can see how much she means.

voted:) Wow! This is a lot of mane to hide your tears in. And it looks so soft. Much better than a tissue. It is amazing, this bond we have with our special friends. I had to leave a very personal blog on these two pages because I had to pay special attention to them for being so great.
Now I have to visit my special doll baby in your pasture. LOL. I hope Baby Lady Brooke grows up to posses this special talent for consoling her human too.

Fancy is sliding by in the mudd with this vote for you:) Wednesday we got our first pink bags of Strategy. I thought they were quite pretty but Fancy wasn't impressed. I guess she was more interested with the contents, LOL. My son asked,"Do they have a blue bag? Tell him to bring out a blue bag!" I explained to him they were pink for breast cancer awareness.

Please vote Fancy Walk N That Way for Virtual Horse Show contest Baby Face;~)

Hey! Thanks for helping Pixie get HOTD! Once again it's been a crazy week and I just now have some time to sit down and blog :) Tomorrow one of my friends is home on leave from the Air Force. We're going to have lunch and catch up. She wants to come ride the horses and see how Skipper's doin. She loves that horse and Skipper adores her. If there is one person he loves, more than me, it's her. I think she leaves for Iraq again on the 23rd of July. I'm going to show Pixie, Thumper, Lana, Skipper, Sprout, Hugo, Gem, and Rhonda in this years fair. Poco had to go to the vet and has a track of pus from his heal to his toe. The vet pulled his shoe and covered his foot in formaldehyde and Iodine. He's movin better now, so that's cool. Star isn't pregnant Which is kinda sad for me. But I guess there's always next year. Rodeo season starts soon and I am really workin hard to fit Jeff up. But he doesn't loose weight very fast. Well left you a vote! Hope to hear from ya'll soon!

Fancy trotting by to drop a Thursday Vote in your pail! Is the weather at your house allowing you to get any horsey activities done? We still have snow laying, but, tons of snow melted yesterday, which left ponds of water standing. Hopefully they will dry up today or sometime soon,LOL. And my boys are back to school today. I might miss them being home just a little,lol.

That sounds like alot of fun!

Well I had a very productive day yesterday! Lots of individual grooming and bonding time with Gracie, Ferina, AND Izzy! & Ferina's training for polebending started yesterday, and she FINALLY learned how to canter circles!!! I was SO happy with her!!! I also got to go on a couple of gallops with Ferina, we both liked that=) I also got to ride Gracie, I gave her a little workout then I let my pawpaw ride her while I rode Ferina bareback! Then I lunged Gracie a very little bit, and she didn't do very good, she kicked out one good time=( I got to work with Izzy some too! Which reminds me...I have had Izzy for exactly a year ago today! January 19, 2009, this little guy came into my life and onto our farm! He was the best birthday present ever ( even though I got him a month before my birthday hehe! ) Well here is a vote for you! Have a great rest of the week!

Your horses are gorgous. I dont know much about the Gypsy horse. I do know they are beautiful. You have Dolly Girl down as 14.1 hands. Is that an average height? They look so much bigger than that. I always thought they were of draft horse size, 17+ hands. Your mare sounds very special.
