How We Met

I found him on Horsetopia. I wrote to the family that had raised him, he was born on their farm. They agreed that I would make a good owner for him and he was just what I needed and I was right for him. I drove 6 hours to get him and it was LOVE. He is my perfect riding partner..

Thank you so much for stopping by today on the first of the year, 1/1/11 and the first day of Pippin's run for horse of the month! I hope you all had a wonderful day celebrating New Year's and that you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Today's first mini fact!

Miniature horses have uniquely small feet!

Yes, it's true! And while that is an obvious fact unless you've met one you really can't imagine how small they really are. The first time I laid eyes on Pippin he was only 4 months old and what struck me were his teeny tiny hooves! Of course, they're bigger now but still at 2" in diameter they are mighty small.

Miniature horses cannot be shod because the nails required to keep shoes in place would splinter the hoof wall. But, their hooves are much sturdier than their larger counterparts. Because minis are small their hooves take very little stress and they can not only trot on hard pavement without any adverse affects but can even gallop. A trim every two or three months keeps them in shape and they're good to go.

Miniature horses that work as therapy or guide horses often wear horse sneakers. This keeps them from slipping on polished surfaces and stops their hooves from damaging delicate surfaces.

Thanks again for your support and I hope to see you all the rest of this month. Leaving a vote of appreciation.

P.S. Thanks for the comment on Pippin's markings. Yes, they're definitely unique. I have to say that Zeus has the most beautiful gold colour!

In the quiet light of the stable,you hear a muffled snort,the stamp of a hoof,a friendly nicker,gentle eyes inquire,"How was your day old friend?"and suddenly,all your troubles fade away. -Unknown

I just love this quote :) It is so true!! Anyway yesterday since I wasn't feeling so well I didn't do anything but love on Daisy..she probably enjoyed the day off...hehe! And it looks like we might get quite a bit of rain here this week so I guess we shall see how much I get to do with her. Daisy's sore is actually healing well. The proud flesh is pretty much gone and she isn't sore anymore (I press on the sore and she doesn't flinch or move at all). So I am happy. I am going to ride her bareback this week yet and we are going to see how she feels by next week and maybe then saddle her up. We shall see! I am not planning on rushing her. I hope you had a wonderful and blessed weekend! Talk soon Ruth Ann, Navajo and Daisy


Come visit me, Daisy & Freedom.
