How We Met

Long Story Short- I Volunteered at an Animal Rescue. I worked there for quite awhile when he came a long. Love at first site. I have worked with him for the past 2 years, to get him where he is at now. It was long hard journey but totally worth it! I love him so much and couldn't ask for a better horse! He went from not even knowing what a halter was to being able to Ride him on trails everyday! Although he still loves to buck and is not bomb proof he is amazing! He has Personality!

Soldiers do not march in step when going across bridges because they could set up a vibration which could be sufficient to knock the bridge down.

:-) thank you for the vote. I haven't been on here for about a year I guess. :-) coming back makes me miss all the people I use to talk to. :-) Your Mustang is so lucky to have you. I love mustangs, to me they are true freedom. it is sad that they are slowly losing their freedom. I sorry to say that I actually lost Dee September 27th, a cougar went through my mother in-laws. She was a great horse, and still the only horse I have ever met that would growl at something she didn't like. lol

Sorry I haven't been on in awhile! A lot of you have been asking about the fire. Well we where evacuated the fourth day of the fire. When we where let back in to look at the house, half the barn was gone. The house wasn't touched though, so we are thankful. To get out of the smoke we went on vacation for a while. Until the barn is rebuilt we have moved the minis to Mercy and Oreo's barn. We had to evacuate so fast we could not bring any tack. So far there is only smoke damage, except for a bridle that was left out, which was completely destroyed. We just thank God no one was hurt and we still have a house. Thanks for your prayers!

Left you a vote! Logans gravel in his hoof isn't much better and he is still limping, but soon he is going to get shoes on his front hooves so that might help him! My trainer said when he gets shoes it will elevate his hooves off the ground a little so they are not touching all the dirt and mud, and that will help prevent him from getting so many abscesses and gravels! Any horsey plans today? Left you a vote! Please spread the word about me running for August hotm and please vote for me! Come visit me!

It is wonderful to hear from you! What are you up to this summer? Any great riding adventures?

Fancy & Trigger are here with a Thursday vote. Where has this week slipped away to? Sorry I have been so busy lately.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Cowboy Definitions:

Thanks! Cocoa is beautiful, too! I LOVE that you volunteer at an animal rescue. Isn't it the best experience in the world? It's what I want to do for the rest of my life. So I don't want to sound like some crazy blog-writing maniac but this just reminded me that I wrote a blog post about my love for rescuing animals and, particularly, horses... It would make me SO happy if you read it and told me what you think! You don't have to, of course. But if you really liked could tell other people ;) Anyways, the link is http://thelifeofanaverage8thgrader. html#!/2012/06/i-promise-ill-never-forget.html ... I'm sorry it's so long!

How are you doing? Is it hot there? It's been pretty warm here. Close to 100 degrees for a few days. And then suddenly down to 40 a couple of nights ago. And now back in the 90s. Crazy mountain weather!

Last month I spent so much time blogging for Shadowfax and the month before that I was blogging for Pixie Dust, that I haven't had much time to blog for Pippin! And he's my very own. Oh well, what he doesn't know…

He is looking SO handsome right now. I finally came to a decision to give him a flax seed oil supplement. His coat is glossy and he looks very healthy. I don't give him any type of grain so I think it's a good idea to add the oil. It's only a very tiny bit but it gives him the omega fatty acids that he wouldn't otherwise be getting. Most grain fed horses would get that automatically.

Talking of Shadowfax, I played around with Photoshop last night and made some photo edits of Pippin and Shadowfax together. I think they turned out pretty cool. I also made one of Pippin running in the surf.

I've been wanting to do that for some time. I want to make some of Eddie too. He's just so handsome it would be worth the trouble. I finally posted a photo of his first place win the rodeo parade. That is a HUGE event in our county. Come and check it out!

Well, as usual, it's getting late here. I hope you're all doing fine. I will try to write more than c/p messages but in the meantime I wanted to make the rounds and visit my friends.

Leaving a vote for you.

It was another hot day. I let the girls out of the corral late in the afternoon. Sadie was at the backdoor trying to open it, again. She and Star got lots of carrots. When Sadie realized I was out of carrots, she turned that big butt to me to scratch. I found the right places, too. She stuck her bottom lip out and enjoyed it. So silly. Hugs and a vote

left you one too! I seriously doubt that I would like western more than english. I just ADORE dressage and jumping! Plus I dont know that he would do good in a western saddle, thoroughbreds were bred for english after all! We dont think he's ever ridden western before. I think he could win a barrel race as fast and energetic he is though! Would I have to train him for western beforehand?

Hi! Here is a vote, thanks for stopping by :) I am joining my blog with a newsletter today. I will be doing them all week since sweet, and amazing Joey & Ginger has taken over for the past week or two, due to my gma in hospital and me being busy. ~ We have been having nice weather, and then thunder and lightning storms over here, and now today is beautiful and sunny. Never know in Oregon. My sister said at 4:37 p.m. she was at work and looked outside and saw about 2 lightning bolts outside. ~ I spent my time outside with Sasha, took pictures, and just enjoyed the fresh air. My dad told me today that I will be driving in the parking lot once again with my mom this time. I am once again very excited. I have been learning, lately, how to write a tv/movie script. I have been told many times by many of my friends that I am a wonderful writer, and I just love movies/tv shows, so why not :) Hehe! ~ How have you been? I really hope well. I love reading your wonderful daily messages, that make my day! How is your weather going? I hope its in your liking.

Left a vote, So sorry that I have been gone this week. It just seemed I could not find enough hours in my days. We have had lots of OT at work, I'm not complaining, it all helps out, I can now justify the lessons with the new trainer. I think Charlie might like dressage. It has only been 2 lessons, so it is a bit early to tell. We like her and she likes Charlie. Zack had an amazing class Friday night. I had to work Saturday, and it looks like every other Saturday all summer, YUCK. So hope all is well, have a great week, and talk soon. Donna Lee

Sigh! We are trudging through the mountains. It's raining. The path is muddy. We are wet. Fortunately, we are not cold but… we are still wet. There's not a horse in sight. In fact, all wise creatures are staying under some form of shelter to keep dry. Why are we still out here?

Uh oh, is today's adventure promising to be a dud? I don't mind a walk in the rain but this is getting to me and I can see that all of you are feeling the same.

We come to a steep bank. Someone slips. It's hard to keep our footing! Suddenly someone yells, "Ah, who cares? Wheee!". And down the bank she goes on her behind being splashed with mud and debris. The rest of us look at each other, shrug our shoulders, and sliding down we go! Actually this is kind of fun!

Everyone looks as though they're camouflaged for battle. But under all that mud I can see some happy smiles. A little dirt won't do us any harm.

We walk a little further and the rain peters out. We enter into a large clearing, the sun is shining and there are rainbows. Not one, not two, but so many that we cannot count them. The sun is sparlking off the raindrops and in the midst of all this splendour Shadowfax is grazing.

He's wet too and his silver coat glistens in the sunbeams. He looks up majestically. A faint hint of surprise crosses his face. He shakes his head at us wonderingly. I guess he's not impressed by our appearance!

That's all folks!

Thank you so much for your votes for Shadowfax. And especial thanks to everyone for votng for Pippin in the Amazing Grazers contest and even on his page! Wow, you're the best!

Leaving another vote for you. Happy Memorial weekend!
