My Horse Profile

Norwegian Fjord from Oakland, CA

Arecibo - Rest in Peace PF + Breeze

About Me

Active within 2703 Days

I am from Oakland, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 7 years, 5 months and 6 days

Nicknames: Arie mostly but also Ares, Air head, Dude, the dude, love, monster, it, stinker, and pretty much anything else you might think to call a pony

Age: 14 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Norwegian Fjord

Height: 14.2hh

Color: Dun

Type of Riding: English; jumping, dressage and once the cross-country course is up I'll be doing that to. Also trails and games in the summer along with horse camps (if we can afford them which we probably can't)

My Horse's Achievements: he is cute and a half, he can jump 3 feet maybe more i haven't tried, he is the best friend i could hope for there's this game we play with some of the other teens and there ponies were we get the horses to want to be are hang out with us instead of the other horses in the arena (its hard to explain) but Arie will come and stand next to me without treats and role over which is a sign of relaxation and trust, also he gets on well with other horses ( er as long as they understand that hes the boss"

My Horse's Favorite Treat: apples! we board him near an orchard and the owners said we could ride the horses over and feed them the fallen fruit.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: play games, find ways to escape from his pasture to the one on the other side even though they are identical, learn tricks, eat,

Pet Peeves: his ears being touched, heavy rainstorms, lounge whips ( i don't lounge him), being ridden to long, me feeding or playing with another horse (it sounds like I'm being self absorbed but honestly its kinda annoying)

How We Met

My dad had grown up riding but stopped when he went to school, my moms a vet and I have been taking lessons were ever i could get them since the beginning of time.
Aries was left on the door step 9not technically speaking) of my moms veterinary clinic when he was 1 he had terrible thrush, over grown toenails, bad teeth and was malnourished, my mom took care of him for a while and fell in love with him despite his bad habbit's then one day for Christmas she was holding him on our front lawn with a sign merry x mass tapped to his side with a large chunk out of the corner it the best thing ever to happen. of course as i was only 7 at the time so my dad did a lot of the training but he trained me how to train and i helped him when ever possible.
Me and Arecibo are best friends know and will be so until the day we die.

Please view the video tribute in Horse Vidos: PIXIE DUST: IN MEMORY OF JOANNA, which was submitted by Pippin's family (profile #11626) In honor of our friends: Joanna Wicke her horses, Pixie Dust (profile #101958), & Brisco (profile # 140827), and her family.

Fancy is leaving a vote for you this Friday morning.

King Kong was very bad yesterday. King did not want to listen to my brother and my brother's friend wanted to help, so he got on King. While my brother's friend was riding King the horse reared and they fell back. He is ok, only suffered whiplash and soreness. We don't know what got into King. When he reared, there was no bit pressure at all. So he could have moved in any direction and he chose up :(

Fancy was very good. My son has ridden her. He has gotten bored riding in the corral, so we walk around the block and through the car wash. My son loves to ride her. He would like me to turn him lose. But I don't think Fancy or my son are ready for that. Because she is still very young and I know my son does not have experience in case something did frighten her. But so far she has been so wonderful on his rides out. I don't take that for granted and I pray that she remains steady.
What are you up to on the last Friday in September?

Fancy & I love all of our HorseChannel friends and we hope you guys will stop by her page to vote each day in October so Fancy can be your November HOTM.

The Horse
Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
Friendship without envy,
Or beauty without vanity?
Here, where grace is served with muscle
And strength by gentleness confined
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.
There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.
(Ronald Duncan, "The Horse," 1954)

Voted :~)

I tried the bareback mounting again yesterday. Didn't work out. So I used the tractor tire again. Once mounted, Fancy listened very well. We walked around in the corral and even did some leg yields. It was so much fun!

You have a Blessed day and please keep Paula(horse is Lena #216601) in prayer as she handles the loss of her father and travel.

Here is a Thursday vote from Fancy.

I made a video to celebrate Fancy's 3rd birthday, (her birthday is not this month, it was in May. I am just late completing the video). It posted on HC yesterday. Please check out Fancy's birthday celebration video. The title is 'May 2008-May 2011 Growing Up Fancy the first 3 years'

Fancy is dropping this 'It finally stopped raining vote' in your water trough :~)

Please help spread this message I received earlier today!!!!
I just got an e.mail from ACTHA saying they were rescheduling the World Record Ride for the Mustangs because of an out break of EHV-1 in 6 Western states. I looked it up, the states affected so far are Arizona, Utah, California, Idaho, Washington and Colorado. The infected horses had all attended a National Cutting Horse Assoc. show in Utah in early May. Several horses have already been euthanized. Mine get vaccinated yearly but I just called my vet to see how effective the vaccine is. She said no vaccine is 100% effective and recommended a booster shot 6 mo. after the initial dose just to be on the safe side. Please help me spread the word on HC as there are many members from the west. Please be careful. lotsalov D&J

A good Saturday morning vote from Fancy. I had better hurry, I have to leave in a few hours.

This fairy tale starts with Once upon a Fancy...
There was a little filly born to live wild with her mommy in the Virginia fields. One day a sad & horseless lady slid into the driveway with a trailer in tow, almost missed the driveway. (LOL)
That lady was amazed by this fuzzy filly and took her home right away. The lady cared for the filly and nourished her with love. They become partners for life.
One day the lady found and she was very curious. After a few days passed she joined HC! WOW! What a wonderful internet site filled with the greatest horse loving people she would ever have the pleasure of meeting! Now that little filly, FANCY and that lady have the greatest horsey friends ever, and they are very happy members of HorseChannel. com!!!!!!!!!
Thank everyone for each single vote for Fancy.
Thanks from Fancy for Virtual Horse Show first place!!!

voted:) I am sorry I am not able to blog and vote like I want to right now. I will be back online full time soon as my Mom comes home and is able to do things again. I am at home this evening, I won't be back at the hospital tonight. My Mom is holding the same. I am so thankful for your prayers for her.
My poor Fancy is also stressed for time. I went out to worm her and she was so sweet. She took her wormer like a big girl and I petted her a little. When I was leaving I left the end of my lead rope on the ground inside of the gate. Fancy walked over to the lead rope and stood on the end of it and looked at me. I tell you this little filly was trying to tell me something. I had to explain to her why I had not been with her much lately. Then I asked her to step off the lead rope so I could go in and cook food for our human family. Fancy understood me, just like I understand her. She stepped off the rope and let me give her a good night pat, then she watched until I went inside.

Thanks :) cute horse! How high do you guys jump? Ok this is probably the dumbest question! But i've never had a Norwegion Fjord, or ever been around them. But do you have to cut their manes to look like that, or do they just do that naturally? haha

Here's a Christmas snow vote from my snowbird Fancy♥
HOTD, new saddle and getting your cast off, Girl, you have it going on!!! I hope you do get that cast off today and enjoy your new saddle! I like riding in the snow, but I really wish I had someone to ride with. It would make getting the cold feet a lot more fun. LOL! We had fun anyway.

Thank you Pippin and mom for the lovely tribute that includes Tirnanog with Darling and Petite Fleur. I am using it as Tirnanog's profile photo.

Christmas day is past, but let us keep the Christmas spirit in our hearts all through the coming year by: loving, forgiving, and sacrificing for others just as our savior has done for us.
