How We Met

I was 6 at the time that we got him, we travled all over, but I just couldn't find the "Perfect" horse ;). Then we finally found him, he was a retired professional roping horse (he's now got a little arthritis from it). When I rode him I instantly knew that he was the "one" :)..

How are you doing? I'm beginning to feel better finally today. This was one of the nastiest colds ever. Verging on the flu. Everyone in our valley seems to be either catching it or has it or had it.

I even felt well enough to go riding but I'm glad that the horses weren't feeling their oats too much because I'm still a bit dizzy. I rode Eddie again today. My sister had her old saddle sent to her and I will be using that on Prince. It's a really nice large dressage saddle but it's a bit too narrow for Eddie. She wanted to try it first and, of course, I let her since it was hers. It fit perfectly as did her old bridle. I'm so happy because Prince's tack really did not fit him too well.

Eddie was very well behaved and I got some really nice long fast canters out of him. I just love the feeling of all that raw power under me. It's something indescribable.

The other day Melian jumped over Pippin's fence and into his pen for some reason. The fence was a bit squished and was down to 2.5 feet tall. Well, Pippin was watching and he learns fast. He jumped out of his pen a couple of times so we had to fix the fence. It's now back to its normal 3 foot height.

He went crazy the other day and was tearing around his field. He likes to do that quite often and sometimes Melian will sneak in and join him. Well, I was watching and suddenly he sped towards his fence and leapt into the air. He just clipped the top and got his feet stuck, and rolled over it and onto his back. He was struggling there and I started running towards him but fortunately he managed to free himself and bounced up and ran off towards the lawn where he immediately started to graze. I was very happy he didn't injure himself. I'm also quite impressed that a 31" horse can jump 36" inches. That's an impressive leap!

I'm working on trying to get Melian to leap over Pippin's back. She'll bounce off him but not over him. We haven't worked on it long so I'm hopeful.

How's everything there? Here's a vote for you and if you wouldn't mind leaving an extra vote for Pippin and Prince I'd appreciate it. They're both almost at the next 1,000.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

Happy Easter!
I hope you had a very beautiful day yesterday and enjoyed the festivity and happiness of the day with your friends and family. I had a wonderful day. And all the dogs loved it. It was the first time for Melian and Kermit and I think that they thought they were in Heaven with all the delicious tidbits.

I didn't know it was supposed to snow though. I thought that was for Christmas. I guess I was wrong. Christmas is supposed to be warm and sunny, Easter is cold and snowy. We got more snow today too.

I drove Pippin the other day in a strong winter storm. We had gale force winds and heavy rain. I guess I was a bit crazy but I had set my mind on driving and when the rain came I didn't want to quit. He wasn't perturbed at all. In fact, I think he liked it. I stayed in the forest though because when I tried to go out on the open road the winds across the valley were so strong that they almost blew the cart over and my umbrella was instantly turned inside out.

We did go down a quieter road and see some horses. They were wind crazy too and running and bucking. Pippin was showing off to them and prancing and cantering up and down the street. Meanwhile I was sitting there getting quite wet. It was fun though.

I rode Prince earlier that day and I wanted to take some video but the wind was already strong by then and the camera couldn't stay still. Prince was crazy and I had to have a really tight rein on him so that he would behave. My sister finally gave up riding Eddie after he bolted 3 times. I guess she wanted to live another day. At least that's what she told me. I don't blame her.

Happy White Easter from snowy California.

Wishing you all the best in this most joyous of seasons and leaving a vote. Thanks for stopping by.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

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. We are expecting snow today.

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.
