My Horse Profile

Appaloosa Horse from Tehachapi, CA

Bud

About Me

Active within 1904 Days

I am from Tehachapi, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 7 years, 4 months and 18 days

Nicknames: His registered name is Apache Bright Bud, but I call him "Moose"

Age: 32 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Appaloosa Horse

Height: Bud is a powerful 16 hands high

Color: chocolate brown and black with a blanket of white on his hind quarters.

Type of Riding: Just pleasure; we trail ride often

My Horse's Achievements: Bud has always been an all around great guy; a gentleman. However, when I first got him, he was a prancing "stallion" (at least he thought he was a stallion). He really showed me his "be anything, go anywhere" side in our adventure in a parade, however.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Bud loves anything from cookies to granola bars (from equine edibles) to his senior mix at night. Basically, everything is a treat.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Eat and sleep, mostly; but he also loves going to the neighbor's and getting to mingle with all her horses.

Pet Peeves: He hates my pet llama, Kuzco. Hates him with a PASSION.

My Horse's motto: Love with all your heart and never forget how good it feels to be alive and strive for your desires.

How We Met

I brought Bud home in 2002 to try him out for three weeks and fell head over heels in love with him. In that short time we created our lifelong bond. However, when the vet came up for an all over check, skin cancer was found. It was nothing serious, but still needed to be taken care of. The owners called me a liar and took the horse back, breaking my heart. I was only twelve, so you can imagine how much it hurt! When Bud left my home, he was just beginning to put on weight and we had trimmed his much-too-long hooves. He was going back to the place that had neglected him for so long. Two years later the horse was given to my best friend and neighbor, who immediately gave him to me, completing the fairy-tale story. he is now a fat, sleek, strong steed..

What's wrong with Bud that his nose is icky? I know about crazy days! Yesterday, we too (down at work) had a guy cussing and swearing at us just because my father told him to slow down (he was driving down the alley really fast). I am not old enough for college yet, nor do I plan to go, but I hope you do well and work is better for you today. Hope Bud gets better too!

It is much warmer to ride bareback, but with a winter coat, you do get really hairy. The lady that keeps Halle for us, when she has a new bail of hay in the shed, she lets the horses chew it down when she feeds them until it gets to a height that a person can pitch the hay. And Lily, the horse that is gone, when she tries to get her momma's (Halle's) grain, momma says, "This isn't for you, child." At least that is how it appears. Because Halle has senior horse feed, and Lily doesn't need it too (but she thinks she does). Thanks for the vote and here is one for Bud.

I didn't get to see Halle this weekend because we had almost a foot of snow over night! So, it made hazardous travel if we would have tried to see her. Glad you enjoyed Six Flags! And glad you had a relaxing time. We seem to work a lot, and my dad told me that he fully intended to let me see Halle this weekend, but the weather just wouldn't cooperate. And Halle is back to her old self, at least that is what my dad told me (because he called the person we keep her with). Well, here is a vote for Bud and thanks for the vote for Halle!

Yeah, a car lot. I am not sure if Halle has started eating yet or not, but I assume so because I haven't had a call that says she still isn't eating and that I should come out there in the event that something is wrong. But, I would imagine with horses that hunger wins over missing her pasture pal and as soon as she smells the hay that she will forget about Lily and find that food is much better than being hungry and depressed. I was at Six Flags once when I was small (probably 4 or 5) and I got a stuffed lamb, and of course I called it Lambsy (funny how one remembers things like that). So, I wasn't old enough to go on many rides at the time. Hope you have fun!

Yeah, I work with my parents and they do own their own place, but it isn't a restaurant. They have a car lot, and since we have been busy I am really tired. We get a lot of exercise there too. I know a month isn't so long. Dad promised me that I would get to see Halle this weekend (bad weather or not, even if I couldn't ride {and I don't mind not riding her}), and I think she will probably be glad to see me and get some extra attention. But when Lily comes back, I bet Halle will be glad to see her. Thanks for the vote and here is one for Bud!

Thanks for the vote! Lily (the filly that just left) will be back in about a month, and I am fairly sure Halle will get used to being by herself. We were planning to go out and see her last night, but we got too late because we were so busy. So hopefully soon I will be able to see her. Here is a vote for Bud too!

HI ♥
Yes, think of now! That is a great idea. I am not really thinking of the what could happen, just being prepared for it. Like the saying, "Hope for the best, but expect the worse." Not that I am saying the worst is always going to happen, just to understand that things don't live forever. I guess I am more talking to myself in that last statement. The day before yesterday, Halle's pasture mate was taken away to be trained. So Halle is feeling kind of depressed. The lady that stays out with the horses all the time says that Halle isn't eating, but her pasture mate has only been gone for one day. I think this evening we are going out to see her. I too, couldn't afford a major surgery for Halle. I want her to have the best of care, but there just comes a point when you have to decide which is the best way to go. But, thanks for the blog and vote and here is a vote for Bud.

Halle is my first horse. It is too bad about Nella. Halle, fortunately, doesn't have anything wrong except for her arthritis. But she probably isn't as old as Nella was. It is hard to lose pets, I know a few years ago we had to put my cat, that I had since I was two, down because he had diabetes and we couldn't afford to give him insulin shots. Plus, he was ten years old, which is like 70 years in cat years. So, I know the feeling...I haven't gone through the experience with a horse though, but I probably will at some point in my life. Here is a vote for Bud and I am going to give your other horses votes too.

he's so cute! I really hope the vet doesn't find any tumors or anything bad like that. I love those pictures of you two, you can tell how close your bond is and there's nothing in the world as great as that. My bond with Lula keeps getting stronger. She actually did her veryy first half pass halfway across the arena on friday!! Shes 4 this year so next year, after a thorough vet check, we can do real jumps instead of baby jumps!!im glad all is well with your other two! Here's a vote!

Hey! ♥
If it wasn't for a sewing machine, I probably couldn't sew at all. Was Bud your first horse? I know the kind of stressful life, although it doesn't always come from my horse! LOL! The only time when it is stressful is when Halle has something come up that I am not expecting or it costs more than I was expecting. But other than that, she doesn't cause me a lot of stress. Hope work went well again. Bet you're glad it is Friday! I know I am! Blog back soon and here is a vote for Bud. By the way, what made you decide to put Nelly down? Had she just gone down in health too far? Not trying to pry, just interested.
