How We Met

He was at the stables I board at and his owner was not nice to him...after one ride she came in and said, "I could hold his nosed closed for 5 minutes so he couldn't breath." I took him out for a ride and he was perfect for him and then I just spent time with him and everyone believes that this is the horse for me. He's actually 80% Morgan, 20% Arabian, and his sire was a Spotted Draft..

Here is a vote from Fancy!

Monday evening I went out to spend some quality time with Fancy") I really needed that. We practiced some leg yields and backing with me in the saddle. Fancy was pretty good with the backing. It took a few attempts before she understood the leg yields. It takes a few tries but each time she does them better than the last time. After a few minutes I let her graze and just enjoy some quiet time together.
My saddle is very comfy with the new adjustments. It is easy to keep my heels down and I am not reaching for the stirrup! That felt good! I can't wait to use them for a longer ride and see how my knees feel.

Are you and your best equine pal doing anything special this week?

Gotta Saturday Night vote for you! I hope you have had as much fun as we have today! Today was bath day for Fancy. After her bath my son (on his bike) and I hand walked Fancy around the block. We let her graze before going home. I saddled Fancy and I rode her around the neighborhood and through the car wash:), while my son rode his bike. She surprised me by walking sooo slow the whole time. I couldn't believe it. I didn't even have to fight with her to go into our yard. She was just layed back and easy going! I was just surprised! I took tons of photos with my clean girl. Now she smells fresh too! I hated to put her into her corral. I hope she doesn't roll tonight:( I will see about that in the morning, LOL.

We are finally online and making our way with votes for friends. How has your Friday been?

I rode Fancy around the first block and at the field before our house I dismounted and walked with her home. I know most of the time when you see someone ride out and walk home it is due to a spill. But I just felt like walking with my buddy and giving her a few pats along the way. She was so good and listened to me pretty good. Fancy never knows where I am going to dismount. When the notion strikes me, I just do that. It's the quality of time spent rather than the quantity.

Horses are more than animals. I truely hope you have a wonderfully Blessed weekend and love your horse♥

Good Morning vote from Fancy and Frances♥
How are you today, did you have a nice weekend?

I would like to keep my Fancy shoe free, so I am considering purchasing hoof boots for Fancy. If anyone has any experience with these, please let me know about that. I would like to know about the ease of putting them on, if they come off easily in mud, how long they last, if they rub sores on the horses coronet or other area, did they have any effect on the hoof itself, do you think they are a good investment, and just any info you can share.
If you have anything to share or not I would like to personally thank you for giving me your attention and let you know I appreciate every friendly member I have met here. You are top notch horse lovers, the greatest!
Have a Beautiful Day, Be Blessed♥

Are you riding this weekend? I hope you are having fun what ever you are doing:)

Ok, I hope EVERYONE is enjoying a great weekend!
I have had an aweful week with my son being sick and personal issues. But as always my Fancy time has made all the bad things seem so small. God knows I love that little horse. I really need my horse. She is my blessing.
Today was the first time we rode out with Tirnanog! I was going to keep MISS Pants behind Tirnanog. Hoping she would settle down and walk slow. Tirnanog walks very slow and relaxed. Nothing seemed to phase him today. Well MISS Pants wasn't going for any slow walking mess. So I let her go and every now and then we would circle back and around Tirnanog, So we don't get too far ahead. I convinced her to walk through a few muddy water puddles in some driveways. We walked through the car wash, didn't get a wash though, LOL. Had fun stepping up a bank with a cement wall. Fancy has done this with out me on her. Today we did it together. Only problem, when we step down into the street, the last few times Fancy would jump instead of walk. Tirnanog was soo cool he just stepped up and down very easy like. The only thing that bothered Fancy today was a loud dirt bike. The guy saw her reaction and I was very thankful he turned and went the other way. My brother said he isn't to ride those on the streets any way. We stopped and let them graze for at least an hour and we stopped and talked to children and other people too. Fancy was attracted to the children. I was very impressed with her good behavior with them. Don't know how our future rides will be, but this one was a well needed breath of fresh air. I told my brother to get things ready so we can visit some state parks this fall. I think that will be even more fun!!!

TGIF Yeah! One more Friday vote for you, have a fantastic day:)

I didn't ride Fancy for 2 days, then I rode her Thursday morning for a few minutes and let her eat grass. She was better than the last time I rode her. As usual, the closer to the road we get, she gets excited and wants to rush. And when we ride up the street, every now and then she rushes. Indy's mom reminded me to do circles. I do this in the yard. I don't know why I didn't think to do that when we are out. DUH:) But any way, I did this when she began to rush and I would go back down the street closer to home, like take 2 steps forward and 3 steps back. This seemed to encourage her to rush a lot less. It looks like I can work through this after all. Most horses are barn sour (wants to stay at the barn), my horse is street sour,LOL.(wants to go, go, go.) Any body elses horse have this condition:)????

I am getting better at sitting her gaits. I desire to post and there is nothing to post with. I feel like I'm just sitting not doing anything. Maybe that is because we are just walking too. Oh well. But riding Fancy is a lot of fun, I can't deny that:)

Stopping by with a late evening vote:) Whew, I am tired. It has been a crazy strange day. But my Fancy time made it all well at the end of this day.
I have ridden Fancy three days straight now. Each day has gotten better. I pray this trend continues:) When I went out this afternoon Fancy was running around like something WILD! Bucking, jumping, rearing, and running! I looked at her and thouhgt maybe I shouldn't get on her today. Well I decided to work it out. In the corral we did some ground work and I mounted her. Rode about 5 minutes, she was listening very well:) So I dismounted and headed out into the yard. We did some more groundwork, then I mounted and she kept her head straight out and didn't move. She is a little stiff on the right side, so I decided to work on right circles. We done several small circles until she begin to listen calmly. As she relaxed and began to listen we made larger circles. Boy, this was better than yesterday! I decided to circle things like the tree, the dog lot, the shed and Fancy was very good. I even let her walk fast and I enjoyed it:) I wish I could have seen it!!!!! We went into the side yard and she did speed up when she thought we were going out of the driveway. More tight circles and back into the back yard, over and over until she calmed down. Since she wanted to go out, I headed to the other driveway and went out and up into the first driveway, did this a few times. Then we walked up and down the street a few times. Fancy didn't want to go in the upper driveway, so, I decided to take her up the street. I walked her past the other horses because I didn't know how she would act. She looked at them and kept going, like she was saying look at me! She ate some grass and then I asked her if she could be a good girl and ride me home past the other horses. Believe it or not, Fancy nodded her head up and down. I put her bridle back on and she stood perfectly still while I mounted and we walked home!!!!!!!!! The only problem I had was, again she didn't want to go in the drive. I gave her a tap on the shoulder and she went on:) I groomed her while she ate grass:) Now I am all cleaned up and tired:)

We bestow upon you this Grand SummerHot Tuesday vote!!!

You wouldn't believe what happened yesterday morning! This guy put his three horses across the street from where Tirnanog is pastured at. And one of them is a stallion. This is the 3rd or 4th time the stallion has gotten out and terrorized the other horses. The horse in the photo with Tirnanog is a mare. This horse bred with her yesterday. Her owner had to get a shot from the vet to abort any pregnancy. My brother called me to medicate Tirnanog. So off I went. He was scratched up, some a little bad and some not. But a lot. BUT one horse there is an appalosa and he got beaten badly. They had to call the vet. His right shoulder was torn open and the muscle was hanging out. I have never seen anything like it. It was a huge wound. It looked like a bomb exploded in his shoulder. But the vet and the guys said the stallion bit him and left that wound. The stallion is small but he is very bad. If Tirnanog would not have ran, he would have gotten hurt very badly. Everyone was very angry, even the vet. I hope this is not something that is seen often or at all:(

Happy 4th of July!
So, is Lakota yours? He looks really nice.

I hope you are having a wonderful celebration today with your family and friends. We've had fireworks and guns going off since the 1st. Fortunately none of our animals are afraid of the loud noises. I guess they're used to hearing hunters.

The only complainers are the peacocks but that's nothing knew. Everytime a firework goes off they start screaming bloody murder. But then again, everytime someone sneezes they scream bloody murder. And if you go past their pen and look at them (yep, you guessed it) they scream bloody murder. So, it's a bit noisy around here.

Pippin has no problem at all with loud noises. In fact, if they were setting the fireworks off in his pen he'd be right there on top of everything. Remember how he didn't react when his tyre blew out? I'm still amazed about that.

My sister and I rode on Thursday. We both rode Jewel but not for long. I wanted to take her out with Prince but I guess it was too much excitement for her and she didn't behave. She kept pawing the ground and acting like she was going to roll. Neither of us wanted a 1 ton creature rolling on top of us so I rode her in a few circles and we put her back in her corral.

Both Prince and Eddie caught her excitement and were a lot of fun to ride. We raced a few times. They're not very good at racing because neither wants to leave the other. So much for the male competitive spirit :)

Well, I hope you're thoroughly enjoying your day and eating lots of good food. We'll have a bbq later this afternoon. Here's a vote for you. ttyl

A mid-week vote is here from Fancy:) I wanted to get a photo of Fancy using her scratcher. But I only catch her using it when I look out of the window or back door. When I go out she stops scratching and walks to me. Sooner or later I will get a photo of her using it:)

Fancy and I are not up to anything until after the holiday celebrations. Does the noise of firecrackers bother your horses? I do not know how Fancy will like them:)

Fancy here leaving a vote for you! Wow! You are going to be very busy! Have fun and be very safe. We are going out of town to visit my husband's family.
I got Fancy's scratcher screwed onto the tree Sunday evening. I knew she was going to rip it off within 30 minutes with her teeth. To my surprise Fancy quickly learned what her equine scratcher was for. I noticed how dusty it was yesterday and I caught her scratching her shoulder and hips on it, LOL.

Once you build up trust with you and Lakota, you should try jumping bareback :) It really is a lot of fun! Tomorrow sounds like a fun day picking out some tack. What are you looking into buying? Left you a Monday vote.

Good Monday morning vote:) Tirnanog visited Sunday evening and he seemed to have stopped the bucking before he leaves. Yesterday I figured out, he didn't want to leave his new pasturemate filly. Well, I just hope he doesn't start that back up. When I ride Fancy with him, I don't want him showing her any bad habits;)
Are you doing anything special for the 4th of July. We are planning to go out of town.

Hi. Aww I'm sorry to hear about your storm. It didn't leave too much damage did it? How was your weekend?

I got Koot out tonight. I rode him bareback with just his halter and there was about a 2 foot jump in the arena so we decided to jump it! He jumped it with no problems at all, he was such a great boy! First time we've ever done anything like that! Hope your day went well. Voted. XOXO Danya and Kootenai

We are on a flat walk to visit you and leave this vote. After voting I'm out to spend the evening with Fancy:) I think he doesn't want to be ridden at first. You have a gorgeous Sunday evening:)
