About Me

Active within 3186 Days

I am from Renton, WA and I've been a Club Horse member for 11 years, 1 month and 5 days

Nicknames: Snowman, Snow, Old man, Bug, Old man Winter and Bugaboo

Age: 41 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Appaloosa Horse

Height: 15.1 hands

Color: Snow is a black and white few spot leopaard with black stockings and three black spots on his thigh.

Type of Riding: We do mostly just slow trail rides around the lake and the occasional parade and schooling show.

My Horse's Achievements: My horse has over come blindness and is living proof that just because you are old and blind it doesn't mean you can't do anything.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Being allowed to go to a show or parade. But he likes his senior feed too. He doesn't really like horse treats that much.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Showing is one of his favorites. But he also really like parades, drill team, gaiming, driving, and anything else that lets him show off how good he is.

Pet Peeves: Being told he is to old to do something or being treated like an invalid because he is blind.

My Horse's motto: I may be old, blind half deaf and falling apart but I sure had fun getting were I am today. I can also still beat the pants off of any of you young whipper snappers any time. Bring it on.

How We Met

I was looking for a bigger better trained horse to take to the local shows. I sold my shetland and found an ad for a 15.1 hand appy gelding with proffesional training for the unheard of price of $1200 (then). I had my mom drive me out there right away. When I saw him I knew he was for me before I even got on him. I had always dreamed of having a white horse with black stockings and a black horse with white stockings and I found him. After the first ride I took him home. We have been together for over 15 years now. He is one of the best trained horses I have ever ridden or met..

Fare well Snowball
To All,

It is with a heavy heart that I am letting you all know that Snowball passed away tuesday the 19th of august just three days after his 32nd birthday. He colicked really badly and due to his age he developed an infection and never got any better. So we had to let him go. He was one of the MOST amazing horses I have ever met in my life. He was diagnosed with ERU (moon blindness) at the age of 15 and soon went totally blind. He overcame that obstical and went on and continued to show, jump, game, drive, teach my kids to ride, trail ride and even joined a drill team for a short stint. He loved doing parades and was always the calmest horse there. I think he felt that they were chearing for him and him alone. And they should have been! If they had only known he was totally blind. He was truly amazing and tought me how to live with and overcome anything life throws at you. He was an inspiration to so many. Snow, you will be missed!

Come visit me, Snowball, Rosie, Mas Itchy Triggar Finger & Phoenix Dancer.
