How We Met

I was "just visiting" the Morgan farm to see what they had for sale and I saw him in the far corner of the pasture, he was everything I said I wanted in a horse, under 15hh, chestnut w/ lots of chrome and a gelding. He spotted me in the field and came running up to me, nickering like we were old friends..we've been together ever since!!.

1,017 from WOLKEN

Hey equine pals ! Well, mom Paula is excited about getting to climb aboard WOLKEN on Tuesday and seeing if they connect ! We have one and a half days to find out! I also want to work with ANKA the beautiful mare who is now in the late Angel Petite Fleur’s pasture. She is going to start training next year as she is only 18 months old but with great ground manners and is not head shy and allows me to check her hooves. She is currently wearing Petite Fleur’s almost new cover coat! She & I have bonded so I hope I can bond with Wolken, they would be nice to ride together when she is old enough and trained. Here is a Wednesday VOTE!

THANK YOU MY HC FRIENDS FOR WOLKEN’S HOTD HONOR ! I apologize for being late but I had a riding session yesterday AM, then had my neighbor’s horse PAPILLON needing care and I walked him to make sure he did not have any colic. It took over an hour. He is Okay today but worried about him. By the time I got onto HC when it was working I was ready for bed, he he! THANK YOU SO MUCH and I hope by December 8 I will have made a bond with him! We are reserving a stall and pasture for him at my riding club and having him here for 2 months in summer (most likely June & July since we go away mid Aug-September. If he becomes mine he will be loved and respected which he deserves! Of course, he needs to return the deed! Keep us updated on your horse(s) and XOXO for being kind!

Paula, Abington, PA.

“For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.” (Edwin Way Teale)

Please view the video tribute in Horse Vidos: PIXIE DUST: IN MEMORY OF JOANNA, which was submitted by Pippin's family (profile #11626) In honor of our friends: Joanna Wicke her horses, Pixie Dust (profile #101958), & Brisco (profile # 140827), and her family.

Fancy is leaving a vote for you this Friday morning.

King Kong was very bad yesterday. King did not want to listen to my brother and my brother's friend wanted to help, so he got on King. While my brother's friend was riding King the horse reared and they fell back. He is ok, only suffered whiplash and soreness. We don't know what got into King. When he reared, there was no bit pressure at all. So he could have moved in any direction and he chose up :(

Fancy was very good. My son has ridden her. He has gotten bored riding in the corral, so we walk around the block and through the car wash. My son loves to ride her. He would like me to turn him lose. But I don't think Fancy or my son are ready for that. Because she is still very young and I know my son does not have experience in case something did frighten her. But so far she has been so wonderful on his rides out. I don't take that for granted and I pray that she remains steady.
What are you up to on the last Friday in September?

Fancy & I love all of our HorseChannel friends and we hope you guys will stop by her page to vote each day in October so Fancy can be your November HOTM.

PEACE STARTS WITH A SMILE;~)
HAVE A BLESSED DAY ♥

Here's a Saturday vote for Zip! He's real pretty, and I love the story of how you met...almost like he was waiting for you. I rode the trails today by myself. Luna is used to being with other horses when she goes on trails, so she was a bit skittish. She jumped at every rustling of the leaves! But we finished the ride and she seemed very happy to return to her herd. Have a horsey day!

Fancy is stopping by with a Mid-Day Monday vote!

I gotta tell you the funny thing I saw this morning! When I went out to feed Fancy, 3 small kittens that we adopted were all in Fancy's corral in different places. Two of them ran out to meet me. Fancy helped them out with a spirited chase. The smallest of the kittens was at the base of the big tree in Fancy's corral. Fancy looked at it and ran to chase it too. When she got to it, that kitten ran around the tree! You should have seen Fancy looking around that tree for that kitten, It was soo funny. It looked like they were playing hide-n-seek! Finally the kitten ran into the stall and when Fancy lost interest, the kitten ran out. What a silly horse.
You gotta tell me about something really silly that your horse has done. I look forward to reading that!

My brother rode King yesterday for the first time. He said he walks very slow and he likes him. My brother seems very excited about his new horse. King is getting some grain now. Before he was only getting hay. I hope he can gain some more weight. He is kind of thin.

Have a Blessed Day!

Fancy & King has left a Sunday vote for you!

As Paula says it,"Horses are healers" Now my brother may have his healer. Thanks for welcoming King to HC with your awesome comments and with HOTD! I was surely surprised I called my brother just now to tell him. He says "THANKS!" He got the news as he is riding King for the fist time right now as I type. I am jealous, they didn't call me!!!!!! You all are so sweet to us and we totally think you guys are the best, love you with a really big hug!

When my brother said he was ready for another horse, I was very excited and happy! The lady said King is least 16HH and he was vetted in May, which was good for us because he is up to date on vaccines and a new coggins.

Friday morning Fancy was stiff from the rabies vaccine she got Thursday. Good thing we had Bute left from the time she had a reaction to the vaccines she had months ago. I gave her the Bute, it helped. I did spend Friday walking her around to eat grass to loosen up her body. I walked her 1 1/2 hours several times Friday and Saturday. In her corral she stands in one spot when she is not feeling well. And then the stiffness and swelling get worse.
Saturday Fancy was not very stiff, we trailered to the farm where King is. We had them on leads and let them graze for a few hours.
When I got home, some old horseriding pals came by on horseback! One guy rides a Percheron cross and she is huge and beautiful! The other guy rides a well behaved paint. Fancy wanted to ride out with them. She was doing her little gaited thing all over that corral and pitching a fit. She looks at me like she is saying, "LET'S GO, RIGHT NOW!!!" Well maybe we will get some good long rides in soon!
We hope your weekend was nice. Did you have any excitement, or just a nice weekend?

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"A friend is one who walks in when others walk out" (Walter Winchell)

Fancy's sliding by in the mud to leave you this Tuesday vote. We hope your holiday weekend was most delightful. Did you enjoy any horsey time? We did nothing here this weekend. Now it is raining off and on☁

Lots of friends asked how I began to teach Fancy to lay down. Here is my comment on that.
1. First you teach the horse to let you handle his front feet. You teach them to let you hold that foot up for long as you want to with out taking it back.
2. Rope breaking helps. I mean throwing the rope all around their body, head, and legs till they are in no way fearful or uncomfy with that feel and touch.
3. You need 2 SOFT ropes. Don't tie, but loop one around the horse's front near pastern (ankle area), you will use this to hold the hoof up only, Make sure this rope never gets tight because it may slow or stop blood flow.
4. Second SOFT rope attaches to the halter as usual, except you run it between the front legs to the off side of your horse and across the back to lay on the same side of his body as the leg you are going to lift.
5. Lift the foot using the rope that is around that foot. Hold still until he is o.k. with that. Hold the foot up at the point that it touches the belly. No tighter than necessary and don't tighten as you go.
6. Teach the bow. Grab the rope that is attached to the halter it should lay just behind the withers and pull slowly and softly until he gives with his nose. His head will tip slightly then he is ready for a bow. He should go back and downward until his knee touches the ground. You have to know your horse. Let him up before he gets upset. Just in case he lays all the way down at this point, keep in mind, which ever way his nose tips is the direction his feet will lay. Stay clear of his feet so you don't get kicked.
7. If he lay down from the bow, you want to rub all over him before he gets up and tell him how great he is!
8. If he didn't lay down from the bow on his own, redo the bow and hold in the bow position and he should lay down. You may need to slightly increase the pressure with the rope that is across his withers. But remember to be very gentle. He should lay down. Depending on the horse, it may take a few times to get all the way down.


Look up Ken McNabb on the internet, his method is very gentle.
I also learned that you do not want to ride a horse up from the ground until it is over 5 years old because it's bones are still growing and you can damage it's developing bone structure, which could lead to future problems.
If I confused you, let me know or look it up on the internet. I hope this has helped.

Also if you know something that will help me with this, please leave me a blog about it!

Hi! It's been awhile since I've voted for Zip and I forgot how stunning he is. I miss Morgans :) Got on Clara bareback and bridleless in her pasture again today. It's so fun to try something different with her! Kind of a challenge because I don't usually use my legs to steer (because of saddle seat posture) so she's more familiar with hand and voice aids. I guess well get there sooner or later :) Please come vote for Clara!

Today’s featured horse is Jasper.

Breed: Quarter Pony
Age: 21
Height: 13 hands
Coloring: Bay with a black mane and tail. He has white socks on his hind legs and a white pastern on his front right leg. He is easy to spot in the pasture because he also has a bald face.
Past: Jasper was a used by his old owners as a 4H Pony.

Jasper is a great horse and loves to be groomed. However he doesn’t really like dogs. He does need an assertive horse leaders because he likes to push them into the center (of the arena) and nip while trotting. He has a smooth walk and trot. He can canter but doesn’t like to and gets hot and wheezes. One of his goals is to work on flexion and bending. Jasper joined the Miracle in Motion herd in 2001 and has worked with a lot of students in the past 10 years. He is used for hippotherapy as well as Therapeutic Riding Classes. Jasper will lunge and ground drive as well. I have ridden him and agree that he as a great pony.

Left a vote!!!
