Hi Emma, here's a vote for ya. Thank you for the CONGRATS on HOTD today for Paige! It was a surprise to me! Last week it was Indy and now my mare! Lucky us! Had a really nice ride on her today, I think she knew it was a special day. Then did some more weed wacking and mowing, it's a never ending job from now till Oct! Keeps me busy and out of trouble! LOL! Then the kids were out for some grass and pasture time, they sure did love that, didn't like the heat and humidity, but didn't complain! Grass is always more important.

CONTINUED HISTORY OF THE ARABIAN.
The extraordinary environmental conditions of the Arabian Peninsula demanded the evolution of a superior equine athlete of exceptional intelligence and uncommon courage. Strength, fortitude and tenacity of constitution were paramount if any horse were to survive life as a warhorse on the rugged terrain. Swiftness and endurance were vital to the success of raids, and only those Arabians with the best combination of these nearly polar attributes were fortunate enough to escape the dangers of battle and earn the respect of their masters. The story is told of the great loyalty these horses would exhibit to their masters. They would be trained as young two-year-olds to respond to a bell, and then they would be left in the desert heat with no water until they became very thirsty. They would then be released near a body of water and right before the horses would reach the water the owner would ring the bell. The horses that would respond and come even in adversity would be chosen as the best and later would be bred to pass on their great loyalty to their offspring. Vitality of spirit and courage were also essential to success in battle; this was to be tempered by intelligence and kindness as both a willing mount and as a large domesticated mammal forced to live in close coexistence with the spartan, mobile life of his keeper.


Question of the day: If you had the choice of two free horses, one gorgeous but completely wild, and one of them very ugly, but well trained, wich would you choose?

Thanks for all the support, enjoy your weekend, and don't forget to vote Dakota for your Nov. HOTM!

☆ CONGRATS ON PAULA AND PETITE FLUER FOR WINNING A MUCH-DESERVED HOTM. WE LOVE YOU!!!!!! ☆

**And congrats to Jesse, our HOTD winner!!!**

Hello, fellow horse lover!!! I was so surprised when I saw an email from HC this morning. I had won HOTD on Saturday. But, too bad, I was offline!!! Thanks so much for voting for me, even though you weren’t trying to get me HOTD, it still means a lot.

How was your weekend? I hope it was a good, horse-filled one!! Mine was pretty horse filled!!
On Saturday I rode for an hour with my neighbor and friend, Andrea. She owns a 3 year old Paint gelding, Twist. We didn’t run at all, so after we came home, I galloped Sweet Pea up the field lane and around the meadow a little.
On Sunday I rode with Andrea’s sister, Cheri, and her chestnut, 6 yo mare, Autumn. We went for about 1 1/2 hours. It was a lot of fun!! I ponied Flicka, and she did absolutely perfect!! She really enjoys it, and it’s a great way to get both horses exercised at one time.
Today (Mon) I did groundwork with both Flicka and Sweet Pea. With Flicka, I worked with staying out of my space, putting her head down, going over and around poles, and a new thing; ground tying. She was really great with that. Then I got her to stand (by putting my hand on her forehead and saying HO) and I walked away and got her to come to me. She’s so sweet and willing!!
With Sweet Pea, I did pretty much the same thing. Sweet Pea has a little problem of thinking “I don’t need to follow you, I’ll just b-a-r-e-l-y come W-A-Y behind you”. Well, I tried to teach her to follow right at my shoulder.

Hope you have a wonderful Monday :~)

And to those who asked; yes, GREAT EXPECTATIONS did meet my expectations, it was GREAT!! I watched the oldest version, I think it’s 1964 or 1946. It was black and white.

I love you all......
Happy Trails!!
Andrea and Sweet Pea, Flicka, and Acorn

Come visit me, SweetPea-I'm now on FB,Andrea Martin-freind me!:) & Flicka & Acorn.

Early history of the Welsh Mountain pony.
The Welsh Mountain pony, one of the earliest established breeds, has roamed the mountains and wild regions of Wales for over a thousand years. Descriptions of these ponies from the time of Julias Caesar( when many where shipped to Rome to take part in chariot racing) tell of the beautiful head with huge, bold eyes and small pricked ears. Subjected to the rugged terrains of the Welsh landscape and often severe weather conditions, the Welsh Mountain pony not only survived for centuries, it thrived! Thus has evolved a breed world-renowned for its intelligence, strength, soundness and endurance. Welsh Mountain ponies are justly recognized as one of the finest foundations for horse breeding in the world. GROWTH OF THE BREED IN AMERICA While Welsh ponies were imported to America as early as the 1880's the Welsh Pony and Cob Society of America was not established as a breed registry until 1907. Interest in the breed dropped during the depression years , but through the combined efforts of breeders, particularly those in the East, participation in shows and fairs continued. By the 1950's the numbers of members grew, more ponies were imported and interest in increased dramatically. Over the next few decades Welsh became the fastest growing breed in America. Registered Welsh ponies and cobs can be found in every state and also in Canada. To date, over 45000 Welsh ponies and cobs have been registered. USES OF THE VERSATILE WELSH PONY The Welsh breed is ideal for the growing child and has the spirit and endurance to challenge an adult. Today Welsh ponies and cobs can be found competing in nearly every discipline...hunters,driving, dressage, combined training, combined driving, English and Western pleasure and heavy harness. Please support my Welsh Mountain pony Dakota during his Nov. HOTM run! Maria, Dakota N the girls.

How are you doing? Wow, it's been a long, long time since I blogged properly on here! This has been the craziest summer ever. I'm always busy and somewhat insane but I think I've taken both to a new level because I've been insanely busy. :)

Without boring you with too many details I'll just say that I've had to take several road trips for work and the past 3 weeks I've been literally working day and night to meet a deadline. But, it's good to keep busy, right? I just miss my nighttime blogging.

Thank you so much for stopping by for both Prince's and Eddie's wins for hotd. I was gone when Prince won and in between trips when Eddie won. But it sure was nice to read all the congrats and to see them in the spotlight again.

Pippin is doing is great as are the big boys. I see them once a week to drive and I really like driving a lot. I still wish I could ride but I'm happy that not only do I get to spend time with horses but I get to drive them.

I take Pippin out as much as I can. Not every day like we're used to because I'm so busy but at least several times a week, even if it's just a walk.

Just the other evening I took him out for a cart ride with Melian. He hadn't been out for about a week and was feeling the need to stretch his little legs.

We were going at a nice trot for a mile or so. Once he warmed up properly he wanted to go faster so I set him at a fast canter. That got Melian interested in a race. They love racing each other!

So, she started teasing him by zigzagging back and forth under his nose and he chased her trying to nip at her bony butt.

Suddenly she did a rollback and accidentally rolled back onto her butt. She was SO mad. I think she felt embarrassed and she let out a huge growl. It was plain that she blamed Pippin and she let him know.

That got him going and he took off at an earth shattering gallop. It was the fastest I have ever seen him pull a cart. It felt like it was going to explode into a million tiny parts. Wow, that was fun! He ran like that for over a mile. What a rush!

That had me smiling and he got a nice bounce to his step. I'm sure you agree that there's nothing like a good ride or drive to bring things back into perspective.

Thanks for sticking by me even though I've not been around. I'm getting caught up on my blogs today (I hope) but I'm not sure how often I can blog. Still lots of work to do.

Here's a vote for you and I hope you're having a nice horsey weekend.

PS Thanks to all who voted for Pippin the Amazing Grazers contest. He won first place in the VHS!

PPS I thought that this was cute enough to mention. The other night we were watching Olympic showjumping and Melian saw the horses on the screen. She loves running with the horses and she growled and tried to catch one as he went over the jump. :)

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

I just want to thank everyone for voting for jet! Please keep them coming! We really want to win HOTD! I will be uploading some new pictures of him jumping soon! So keep stopping by and checking for them!

I am thinking of doing a Picture of the Day (POD). For this I would upload a new picture of jet everyday, along with a little BLOG post explaining the pictures (where, and when it was taken, why I like it etc.) If you think this is a good idea please let me know! I don't want to do it if nobody would be interested. So please stop by, vote for jet, and let us know if you would be interested in POD! :)

Thanks everyone!

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.

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

Hi Emma, here's a vote for ya. Thanks for the congrats on Paige going HOTD! WOW, I just set up her profile last night and she get's the badge of honor her first day on HC. I'm honored, and I know she is too!
We had another really good ride today, she's just a lopin' fool. I did a short video of her on the lunge line, I have to transfer it over to the computer and then I'll up load it to here. Rode Indy also, he was really good, I think he's jealous of me working another horse and now he's starting to lope the way he should! Go figure, it must be a male thing! LOL!
