My Horse Profile

 from Griffithsville, WV

ANGEL THUNDER

About Me

Active within 102 Days

I am from Griffithsville, WV and I've been a Club Horse member for 4 years and 10 months

Nicknames: NO REG NAME HE WAS A GRADE APP/CROSS, I CALLED HIM BUBBY MOST OF THE TIME, PORKCHOP WHEN HE WAS AT HIS FATTEST

Age: 19 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed:

Height: 15 HANDS

Color: WHITE

Type of Riding: WE TRAIL RODE LOTS OF MILES, LOTS OF HOURS! WE ALSO PLAYED GAMES AT LOCAL FUN SHOWS ON OCCASION

My Horse's Achievements: PUTING COMPLETE TRUST IN ME ALLOWING ME TO RIDE AND DO WHATEVER I WANTED TO WITH HIM EVEN THOUGH HE WAS ALMOST BLIND WITH CATARACTS AND UVEITIS IN BOTH EYES. WHEN WE WOULD TRAILER, I WOULD LEAD HIM TO THE TRAILER LIFT ONE OF HIS HOOVES AND SET IT ON THE TRAILER FLOOR SO HE WOULD KNOW WHERE TO STEP, AND HE WOULD GO ON IN. COMING OUT, I WOULD TELL HIM "EASY" CAUSE HE KNEW "EASY" MEANT "WATCH YOUR STEP" AND HE'D JUST COME OUT.

HOTD APRIL 21, 2010

My Horse's Favorite Treat: APPLES & CARROTS

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: TRAIL RIDING, AND GOING FAST, WHEN HE WAS ALLOWED! HE KNEW HE COULD ONLY CANTER OR GALLOP WHEN I WAS ON HIM BECAUSE I WAS HIS EYES! HE HARDLY EVER WENT ANY FASTER THAN A WALK OR A FEW STRIDES TROTTING IN HIS PADDOCK, AFRAID OF HITTING THE FENCE. THAT'S WHY HE ABSOLUTELY LOVED TO GO RIDING. WHEN WE WOULD START UP A HILL HE WOULD PERK HIS HEAD UP AND EARS BACK LISTENING, AND WAITING FOR ME TO TELL HIM IT WAS OK TO RUN. WE LIKED CANTERING AND GALLOPING UP HILLS, BECAUSE GOING UP HILL HE WOULD PICK HIS FEET UP A LITTLE HIGHER THAN NORMAL TO MAKE SURE HE WOULDN'T TRIP. AND EATING APPLES THAT FELL OFF A TREE AT THE CORNER OF HIS PADDOCK BEFORE I RAKED THEM OUT OF REACH!

Pet Peeves: BEING LOCKED IN A STALL!

My Horse's motto: DONT LET ANYTHING STOP YOU OR ANYONE TELL YOU YOU CAN'T DO SOMETHING. BEING NEARLY BLIND DIDN'T STOP ME OR MY OWNER!

How We Met

HE WAS MY 17TH BIRTHDAY PRESENT, I GOT TO PICK HIM OUT MYSELF. WHEN I GOT HIM, IT WAS APRIL OF '99 AND HE WAS 4. A YEAR LATER HIS CATARACTS SHOWED UP, AND GOT WORSE FROM THERE. WE FORMED A VERY SPECIAL BOND THAT WE SHARED UNTIL THE DAY HE DIED, IN MAY 2009, DUE TO A SEVERE RIDING ACCIDENT. (I AM TEARY EYED WRITING THIS!)

BELOW, ARE 3 PICS OF HIS SHOULDER/LEG AFTER WE HIT A 6X6 FENCE POST AT A GALLOP. I FLEW OVER HIS HEAD, BUT DIDNT HAVE NOWHERE NEAR THE INJURIES HE DID. I SWEAR HE BROKE HIS SHOULDER. (EVEN THOUGH THE VET SAID HE DIDNT) HE COULDNT USE HIS LEG FOR OVER 2 WEEKS AFTER THE ACCIDENT. I THINK HE STARTED TO FOUNDER. 17 DAYS AFTER THE ACCIDENT HE COULD NO LONGER STAND ON 3 LEGS AND HE HAD GIVEN UP. HE WAS JUST TOO TIRED AND WEAK, AND KNEW HE WASNT GONNA GET BETTER. THAT WAS THE DAY I HAD HIM PUT TO SLEEP (OF COURSE). (I SHOULD HAVE PUT ALL OF THIS ON HERE A LONG TIME AGO, EXPLAINING A LITTLE WHAT HAPPENED. NOT SURE WHY I DIDNT)

I TOTALLY FORGOT, UNTIL I WAS LOOKING THRU PICS TODAY, ABOUT THUNDER GETTING HIS NAME IN THE HI APR 2004 ISSUE PG 18, ON THE HI WEBSITE (WHICH IS HC NOW), AND ON FARNAMS WEBSITE. HE GOT HONORABLE MENTION IN THE QUITT CONTEST. HE AND I BOTH GOT OUR NAMES IN THE HI ISSUE, AND HE GOT HIS PIC ON THE HI WEBSITE AND FARNAM WEBSITE. I PUT HIS ENTRY PIC BELOW. NOTICE THE DOOR OF THE ONCE SMALL WINDOW, AND HOW MUCH OF THE WALL HE DESTROYED! (WE REPLACED THE WHOLE WALL W/NO WINDOW!)

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS...EVEN THO ITS SUPER LONG...

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Let There Be Peace:
Please keep the Sandy Hook Elementary School community in Newtown, Connecticut in prayer. Also pray for the safety of all children, for evil does not respect boundaries.

Matthew 2:16-18
16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men.
17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:
18 "A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more."


Here is a Very Merry CHRISTmas vote from Cowboy & Trigger. Please visit Cowboy & Trigger at HC page #227894 and leave a daily vote during the month of December! Thanks for your support of Cowboy & Trigger's Jan HOTM campaign ♥

LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/ Word of the day: Drench - Term used to describe the condition an owner is in after he administers mineral oil to his horse.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, “Let There Be Peace"
Luke 2:10-11
King James Version (KJV)
 10: And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
 11: For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

Q: Who delivers the cat's Christmas presents ?
A: Santa Paws !
Q: Why does Santa's sled get such good mileage?
A: Because it has long-distance runners on each side.

I just read your note to me that you wrote in June. Thank you for writing. I saw the picture of your horse and I said wow that looks like my horse. Same kind of white. I read your stories and it mad me so sad, I am sooo sorry for your horse and you. It must have been awful. Again, I am sorry. He is beautiful. I can tell you loved him very much. My horse just foundered 2 months ago. So I am dealing with that. Rotated coffin bones in both front feet. Sylvermist is 27 yrs. old. But she doesn't look it. Did you get another horse? And did you say your white horse was an appaloosa? Misty is half arabian and half appaloosa. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jg-h90TK2Ws This is a link to a video I made, check it out and see how our horses look alike. Bye for now. Keep in touch. I'm going to vote for you. Happy trails!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, MY OWNER IS-
"Easy to outfit: no need for embarrassing visits to uncomfortable little boutiques. You can find all she wears at your local tack store.”

A Tuesday vote from Fancy.
Fancy is enjoying some cooler, cloudy moments through these hot days.

Monday afternoon, I happened to look out the back door, to see Fancy flipping something up and down. I went to see what it was. The first time she has gotten her fly mask off. It is the one with the velcro that folds back to fasten twice. I wonder how she did it. She saw me coming and she was going to show her new found skills of flipping and tossing her fly mask. I told her no and she looked disappointed, but she did not pick it up. LOL.

Hello, Angel Thunder
The pen that I'm assigned to clean now has 3 horses instead of 2. Luckily for me, I clean that pen almost every day, instead of once a week like everyone else, so my pen is still looking good. Tammy (my barn manager) told me that I set the standard high!
After cleaning it out, I groomed Passion for awhile, and then rode him. I am very sad to say that he is still limping after his farrier came and did his hooves. I am so worried about him- I just don't want him to get an abscess for 8 months like he did last year. That was a horrible, horrible time for the both of us. Wish Passion some get-well-soons!

Left a vote!

Hi our pollen count is going up again it dropped to high yesterday and not it is shooting up again with the temps shooting up.I kinda wish I was at my mom's brother's place he lives on the river. It would be so nice in the summer to step out your door cross the one lane road and have your own private swimming pool. Here's a vote for you. I hope you and your family are having a wonderful weekend we have the a/c. Dixie

Thanks for all the well wishes for my trip. I'm excited. Austin and I are flying Delta. I picked an airline where you have to pay extra for everything. Only plan to take 1 suitcase for Austin and I together. Costs too much to wear clothes on vacation. And everything will be okay here while I'm gone, or Rick will know it. Love you all and a vote.

A heartfelt thanks to all for Lightning's second HOTD. It's been exactly 1 year since his first one. With all of the amazing horses on HC, it's truly an honor. I love you all, and your support has been a blessing......Sassy Miss Sadie was a brat today. Putting her bridle on was like trying to put one on a bear. She did not want it. And the saddle was another story. She and Rick butted heads. Not cooperative at all. She was so against it, I had to ride. She was a good girl for the ride. She wanted to go her way which meant we went the opposite. I didn't dismount until she did what she was told. Love to all. Don't forget to vote for our March HOTM runners. Kernel #187063

I have gotten to ride finally the past two days but the ring is a mucky mess, so its only walk trot. Still getting to ride though! so im not complaining :P OMG I GOT A NEW SADDLE! I went to the tack shop to get a new tack trunk, and wasnt going to get a saddle yet (I needed a new one as my old one got to small and I just sold it) but I went in and there was an HDR for sale for almost half off! so I now own an HDR senior event saddle for under $500! I have my first lesson in a long time tomorrow, so im hoping the ring dries up some! left you a vote

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.
