I am from Salinas, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 7 years and 27 days

Nicknames: Zolas name is Italian and the meaning is "Ball of Earth"

Age: 17 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Gypsy Horses

Height: I'm not sure. About 15 or 16 hands high.

Color: She is white with dark brown spots. ( skewbald ) and her mane is about a foot and a couple inches long. her tail is an inch off the ground. we had to cut it because it was dirty and kept dragging. Zolas forelock is a foot long! it is apsalutely beautiful!

Type of Riding: Zola was a breeding mare all her life sadly. she was never taught anthing about riding. When Jenni ( her owner ) bought her, they said some children had sat on her but nothing else. I'm hoping to help train her a bit, then ride her bareback!

My Horse's Achievements: Zola is pregnant! Jenni is going to keep the foal and train him/her!

My Horse's Favorite Treat: She loves her horse cookies!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: She loves to be groomed. She will turn her head and watch. it's so cute!

Pet Peeves: She doesn't like her feathers ( the hair on her legs ) touched. But she's always gentle.

My Horse's motto: Trust in God and he can have you meet the horse of your dreams!

How We Met

My dream had always been to work with horses, and to ride them for free. But my family didn't have much money. So me and my mom prayed about it. I asked God for an oppurtunity to be around horses. God answered. I have lived in the same house all my life. My neighbors have horses. So in my early days of horse crazyness, I visited them. God had already blessed me with an oppurtunity from the moment i was born. But as i said before, i prayed for more oppurtunities. God answered again. I went to the SPCA one day and found out they have a horse center. i walked up there and met a lady who said there was a trainer not far from where i lived that could have me help her once a week. I was overjoyed! So i worked with that lady for a while. Then summer came and i decided that it would be awesome to ride at three times a week. Well of course God answered. He led me to a stable that needed some extra hands around the place. i worked there a couple times a week. Then another lady ( Jenni ) came around! I loved working with Jenni more then anybody! So i stuck with her. The first job i had didn't work out, niether did the second. But Jenni stuck. There was a huge gap though. A time where i had no confidence in riding. I stopped. But five months later came back to it.I can't believe i stopped! Jenni called us and i went back to her place! That's when i met Zola! Jenni had gotten her recently from a breeders. She was a Gypsy vanner! The breed of horse all girls dream about! All this happened because of God! I asked and he answered. of course he doesn't always answer the way we want him to. Sometimes he will say no. But God knows what we love, and if something happens that we like, think o it as a blessing from God. Because he wants us to be happy. If we just let him in, he can do anything. God bless! Oh there are more pictures of her on bottom of the page!

“For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.” (Edwin Way Teale)

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.

"A friend is one who walks in when others walk out" (Walter Winchell)

Fancy's sliding by in the mud to leave you this Tuesday vote. We hope your holiday weekend was most delightful. Did you enjoy any horsey time? We did nothing here this weekend. Now it is raining off and on☁

Lots of friends asked how I began to teach Fancy to lay down. Here is my comment on that.
1. First you teach the horse to let you handle his front feet. You teach them to let you hold that foot up for long as you want to with out taking it back.
2. Rope breaking helps. I mean throwing the rope all around their body, head, and legs till they are in no way fearful or uncomfy with that feel and touch.
3. You need 2 SOFT ropes. Don't tie, but loop one around the horse's front near pastern (ankle area), you will use this to hold the hoof up only, Make sure this rope never gets tight because it may slow or stop blood flow.
4. Second SOFT rope attaches to the halter as usual, except you run it between the front legs to the off side of your horse and across the back to lay on the same side of his body as the leg you are going to lift.
5. Lift the foot using the rope that is around that foot. Hold still until he is o.k. with that. Hold the foot up at the point that it touches the belly. No tighter than necessary and don't tighten as you go.
6. Teach the bow. Grab the rope that is attached to the halter it should lay just behind the withers and pull slowly and softly until he gives with his nose. His head will tip slightly then he is ready for a bow. He should go back and downward until his knee touches the ground. You have to know your horse. Let him up before he gets upset. Just in case he lays all the way down at this point, keep in mind, which ever way his nose tips is the direction his feet will lay. Stay clear of his feet so you don't get kicked.
7. If he lay down from the bow, you want to rub all over him before he gets up and tell him how great he is!
8. If he didn't lay down from the bow on his own, redo the bow and hold in the bow position and he should lay down. You may need to slightly increase the pressure with the rope that is across his withers. But remember to be very gentle. He should lay down. Depending on the horse, it may take a few times to get all the way down.

Look up Ken McNabb on the internet, his method is very gentle.
I also learned that you do not want to ride a horse up from the ground until it is over 5 years old because it's bones are still growing and you can damage it's developing bone structure, which could lead to future problems.
If I confused you, let me know or look it up on the internet. I hope this has helped.

Also if you know something that will help me with this, please leave me a blog about it!

“Donkey, donkey, old and gray, ope your mouth and gently bray: lift your ears and blow your horn, to wake the world this sleepy morn” (unknown)

My version of Tangalayo (the way we sang it as a child)

My donkey hee, my donkey haw,
My donkey sits on a pile of straw.
My donkey likes to eat the best,
but most of all my donkey like to rest.
Tangalayo, come little donkey come, tangalayo, come little donkey come.
My donkey come, my donkey go,
My donkey, he say yes, but he mean no.
My donkey come to me today,
But might tomorrow go the other way.
Tangalayo, come little donkey come, tangalayo, come little donkey come.

Zola is so beautifully marked! She looks so playful. I especially like the picture of her with the foal. I love the story about how you and Zola met. Of course God was with you all the way...after all, He made Zola and wanted her to have a good home. I left a vote for her!

Peace is more important than all justice; and peace was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace. (Martin Luther)

Here is a vote from your dirty little Fancy friend. I want to bathe my sweet young horsey, but it keeps storming, sometimes hard, sometimes lightly. I am trying so hard to wait for her bath. I am wearing out brushing mudd off her. LOL! We hope the weather is being nice in your neighborhood.

I saw the new question for the week, 'if you could ride anywhere in the world where would it be?' This is a very interesting one! I would love to ride at historic places all over the world and the beach. I would love to ride everywhere I have to go, all the time! I think I should have been on earth years ago when we counted on horses for transportation. LOL> What do you think about this week's question?

"Scars are tattoos with better stories" (anonymous)

Happy Monday night to you with a Fancy Vote:~)

I had to handle quite a bit of yard work this weekend. I almost didn't get Fancy out cause I was sooo tired. Fancy became very upset that I didn't let her out. She became a little bratty and started kicking inside her trough and pushing against the panels with her chest. She would watch to see if I was looking at her. When she misbehaves, I sit in my chair until she is being a good girl and then I get her halter and let her out. She was very happy when she was out with me. I led her around the neighborhood and let her eat grass.

John 20
30 Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. 31 But these are written that you may believe[b] that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

Q: How does Easter end?
A: With the letter R!

Q: What’s yellow, has long ears, and grows on trees?
A: The Easter Bunana!

Wow! What a nice Day! The ground has dried enough for some horsey activities. My son rode his bike around the block and Fancy and I followed. This was the first time she had been around the block in months and she was hyper for the ride. When my son would speed up, Fancy would speed up. She was a little fire ball the first 2 times around. The third time she was lots better and beginning to settle down. A motorcycle came by and I took her into a vacant lot so she could see it and not be afraid. Fancy just watched them go by. I think she would have been fine if we had stayed on course, but I didn't want to take any chances. Then we rode into the woods a little. Fancy didn't want to walk in the woods. She did settle down though. We got some fun photos today too. Well, we had a blessed evening and it was worth it.
Back in March 2011, my oldest son (whom is in Afghanastan) mailed me a horse made of Lapis stone from the caves of Afghanastan. I loaded a photo of my little Lapis stone horsey on the bottom of Fancy's page.
Do you have any special rides scheduled for this Easter holiday?

John 19
28 Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

31 Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down. 32 The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other. 33 But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. 35 The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe. 36 These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: “Not one of his bones will be broken,”[c] 37 and, as another scripture says, “They will look on the one they have pierced.”[d]

Q. Why was the Easter Bunny so upset?
A. He was having a bad hare day!

Q. Why shouldn't you tell an Easter egg a good joke?
A. It might crack up!

Q. What did one colored egg say to the other?
A. Heard any good yolks lately?
