My Horse Profile

Quarter Horse from Blue Earth, MN

Tater Tot

About Me

Active within 3085 Days

I am from Blue Earth, MN and I've been a Club Horse member for 11 years, 2 months and 16 days

Nicknames: Definetely A Zippo, Tate, Tater Tot

Age: 15 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Height: 16.0 hands high

Color: Tater is a rich bay color with one tear drop star on his face and a little white snip on his nose.

Type of Riding: I ride Tater in both English and Western. We show in western pleasure, horsemanship, and showmanship. We are now just starting to do english pleasure events.

My Horse's Achievements: Tater and I competed in our first show at the county fair last summer. This was also his first show and his first night away from home. The night before the show there was a big fire-works display and he handled it like a pro with seasoned horses next to him freaking out. The next day we recieved blue ribbons in all of our classes. He is a true champ!

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Tater loves molasses drizzled on his feed.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Tater's favorite thing to do is practise showmanship manuvers and play with his basketball and jolleyball.

Pet Peeves: Tater does not like sharing with other horses. When I'm riding him he does not like other horses to crowd me, he also becomes mad if other horses try to take his food. Tater also has a pet peeve against Paint colored horses, he gives them a glare and nips out at them. (Henceforth we try to stay away from Paints! :-] )

My Horse's motto: If I hang my head low enough... maybe I'll trip over it!

Tater Tot is not a snot!

I didn't do it!

How We Met

I had been looking for a show horse all winter long then finally this big gelding popped up on a website. He was two-hundred miles away and I didn't look very long, but something struck me about this gelding. I emailed the owner after looking at his add for a while, we began talking and talking and talking. I knew he was the one after all of those long phone conversations, so my family and I drove two-hundred miles with a trailer and looked at him. We spent the day with him and his owner, and we just knew he was the one. I brought Tater Tot home right then. We've been best friends ever since..

I may consider showing Fancy this spring. How do i get her ready or what is the first thing I need to learn about? How do you get them to stand square for the time you want them to? I only know about trail competing. This great CHRISTmas season Fancy and Frances give a marvelous Monday vote to you.

A dog looks up to a man, a cat looks down on a man, but a patient horse looks a man in the eye and sees him as an equal.

soo how is tater tot doing? we just had to sell dusty to these people that dont even ride him, and soo i asked them if i could ride him and they said no! omg! i know dusty 10 times more than them!! grrrr. they said they dont think its safe for me to ride him without my trainer being at the barn! grrrr. i have been with dusty for 3 years riding him without my trainer! sorry i am just really mad about that! but i still have Chester and Buddy, even if i have a huge bond with dusty i still get to rdie him in my lessons, but im still mad. Have u ever had to sell a horse that u had a HUGE bond with? Well its sucks. The only reason that we sold him is because he has general colic and my parents couldnt afford a $500 vet bill for every time he coliced with was getting to be all the time. So we had to sell him even if i have a HUGE bond with him, he is more of a pasture horse now and is only riden by me and only once a week. Which is better for him because he coliced mostly in his stall.its sad cause he was a champion hunter and now is retired at the age of 9. it makes me sad because he could have been awesome if he didnt have the colic, but if its better for his health to put him to pasture ill do it. sorry to load all of this on u, but i have been really irriated about all of this. ~Jaculine

Come visit me, Chester.

Todays Day with Good Ole' Tate
Well today was slightly cold so we didn't do anything special today. He just looked at me with silly look in his face, and bobbed his head waiting for his supper.

Yesterday, though was a different story. We worked on our showmanship basics for a bit then took a walk outside and around the farm. He jumped and bucked and reared up. He was so excited to run around outside since it's spring. He was dancing and prancing around. I now know he can do advanced dressage movements, we should began riding again soon. So that will be fun. More tomorrow on Tate's blog!

I hope lots of people vote for him! lol
