My Horse Profile

Appendix Quarter Horse from Castleton, NY

LaVango

About Me

Active within 1477 Days

I am from Castleton, NY and I've been a Club Horse member for 4 years, 1 month and 2 days

Nicknames: His show name is Borrowed Time, and around the barn we just love to call him Lova!

Age: 16 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Appendix Quarter Horse

Height: I am not sure of is exact height, but I think he is at least 16 hands.

Color: He has a brown coat with a black mane and a black and reddish-brown streaked tail

Type of Riding: We ride and show him English

My Horse's Achievements: Getting over his fears and becoming the best horse he can be!

My Horse's Favorite Treat: He loves any type of treat and a great scratch on his neck

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: He loves to canter fast and jump high

Pet Peeves: He, for some reason, hates being passed by other horses in the riding arena. He always tries to nip them and puts his ears down. He also doesn't like cross ties. He absolutely will not be put on them. We think this is maybe from where he was boarded and must have had something happen to him that makes him not want to be near them. Lavango, for the most part, doesn't like trailers. Where he was from, they used to beat him to force him in. When we were bringing him to a show, he was terrified to go in the trailer and always looked like he expected to be whipped or slapped. Soon, after at least an hour, he got over his fears! :-)

My Horse's motto: His motto would probably be "Gallop to the stars and let nothing stand in your way."

How We Met

He is NOT my horse, even though I wish he was. LaVango used to be boarded at a farm (I don't know the name) where they used to beat and abuse him. He was very scared and shy when he came here, probably from his memories of being abused. LaVango turned out to be one of the best horses I've ever ridden. He is kind, loving, smart, and will do whatever you ask of him. Sadly, he is only here for another few months because he came to our barn on a lease. :-( It will be tough and very sad to watch him leave, but I will cherish the last moments I have with him :-).

..·:*¨¨*:·. *VOTE PIPPIN HOTM*.·:*¨¨*:·. .
Hi, my name is Pippin and I am running for horse of the month in January. I am a cute but feisty miniature stallion and at 31" tall and 200lbs, I can literally pull my own weight! I love going out with my humans and my favourite activities (after eating, of course!) are driving and jumping. But… really I'm game for anything asked of me. Nothing much scares me and I LOVE new and exciting adventures.

Do I have any faults? If you ask me, of course not! I'm perfect! If you ask mama? Well, she doesn't like me nipping her (oh, but it's so tempting!) and she wishes I were better with water. I'm not too keen on baths or puddles.

Next month I will have been on the Horse Channel for 4 years and I'm the oldest active member. I would greatly appreciate your daily votes and support for me all next month. I plan to educate all my fans on the wonders of minis and I hope to highlight one of my movies each day.

Thank you in advance and I hope to see you all next month so that I can reach my vote goal of 10,000 votes! Wishing you all the best for the new year and leaving a vote!

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

Vote 9 from Petite Fleur & Herd for LaVango
WOW are you one gorgeous QH! I miss my first Appendix QH FLASH from my childhood! She was sorrel with flaxen mane & tail and is buried in under the cherry tress where my cousin & I took overnight rides in their fields (600 acres of dairy farm!) The farm still goes but Flash lived till almost 30 years and I still think she was a fantastic mare! THANK YOU FOR MAKING FRIENDS! Horsey love to you! ♥
