☆ I want to thank all of you so much for your support of Deacon’s HOTM run! He has over 500 votes so far and we had a late start to boot! I will be off work the next 3 days so I will be phone voting. On the 1st when I wake I will see who top horse is and I am surely hoping it is my Deacy (Mr. Eyeliner) lol I will get a final vote count before I go to bed the 31st and let you know what his final votes were. Love my HC friends to the moon and back again!!! Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

✞ Deacon is such a sweet gentle soul, he loves kids. When a child is around he lowers his head down with VERY soft eyes and it almost seems as if he tries to make his body small ~it is such a sight to see. Some of you will gasp at this but I don’t lunge Deacon before riding, never have. He has always been such a gentleman. I do lunge him sometimes if I don’t have time to ride and it’s just to have time with him. I sure do hope your weather is better than it has been here. The winds have been terrible 20-30 mph and cold! Happy trails to you and here is a whinny and a click on your horseshoe with love =)

Come visit me, ♥ Deacon ♥.

As I mentioned yesterday, please let me know the month you want to run HOTM, I had several listed but deleted it somehow. I am off work tomorrow, phone votes. Have a wonderful weekend <)__~

♥ I am off work this weekend. We pick up Whiskey today at 2pm. His eye needed to be doctored 2 times a day is why he stayed so long. I go to work before the sun comes up so I would have only been able to get it doctored 1 time a day. His final doctoring will be tomorrow. I do plan to ride Deacon at Lake Whitney tomorrow. I am hoping Lizzy will go so Rocket can get rode. I will phone vote everyone Sunday though so please vote each day and silent votes are so welcomed as well! Have a wonderful weekend <)__~

☆ As I have mentioned before, I have learned so much with Deacon and of course Whiskey & Rocket. Each horse has brought knowledge to me that has its own value. I think we all carry a special place for that 1st horse that is hard to describe ♥ the 1st year ½ I went trail riding, I experienced penning & cutting cows but my favorite has always been trail riding. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ☆

♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.
Here is a hug & a Wednesday vote :)

Deacon would love your support for HOTM!
☆ Deacon’s registered name is “One More Special”, he surely is one special horse to me. Deacon was born with what people call a “prophet’s thumb”. It is an indention on the right side of his neck. I’m told it is from him lying on his hoof while in his mother’s womb. We thank you for your support during this HOTM run =) Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =) P.S. hoping to pick up Whiskey today!

Yes he is registered as a breeding stock because he is solid...sometimes they get spots later in life but I'm pretty sure he is too old to ever spot out now. Thank you! I love the greys even after they lighten up but I really like when they have a black mane and tail and are dark around the eyes like your gus :)

The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. The picture today was taken 8/2012. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. We haven’t camped out in nearly 2 years, and that is when I can try to swim with the horses. It’s too hard to try swimming when I day ride because of the drive home (driving wet is no fun) -ha ha =) Deacon is my true water baby-he will actually swim with me and never try to lie down. I have also found that Whiskey hates for any type bug to fly in his face-so needless to say while we ride in the open if there are grass hoppers or butter flies, regular fly’s he tosses his head slightly. It doesn’t bother me now but it used to. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Whiskey would love your support for his HOTM run
Monday we left off about Whiskey’s color and me with 5 hundred questions for Karla! Here we go…That poor girl had never met me before and I could not shut up :) I then walked over and looked Whiskey right in the eye and he looked back into mine and my heart sunk. His beauty was striking and the color was outstanding. He had a smart, sharpness about him-I’m sure he was thinking “what in the world is she doing”. The ride finally got underway; usually everyone has me ride out front and calls me the trail boss! Deacon is a faster walking horse but can ride in the middle or behind after the first hour or so. Well, here comes Rio & Whiskey with their smooth selves!!! They just gaited their smooth self’s right past me & Deacy. I watched Whiskey and noticed he didn’t quite move the same as Rio but still a difference from a QH. 2 hours into the ride we decided to rest a few minutes in a place we call “Carol’s lounge”. We have names for all our spots we ride to rest or to take a break out there because it’s so big. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Today’s affirmation: “When god created the horse, he said to the magnificent creature: I have made thee as no other. All the treasures of the earth lie between thy eyes. Thy shalt carry my friends upon thy back. Thy saddle shall be the seat of prayers to me. And thou shalt fly without wings, and conquer without sword; oh horse.”
