How We Met

I had been searching for a horse for a long time when a friend said that she was selling her horse. I had seen him at a shodeo a few weeks before and she told us that he wasn't for sale but I really liked him and I wished we could buy him. When I went to try him out he was an amazing horse to ride. He is a little lazy but he will do anything you ask. Remington is also really smart so I always have to change up what we do in the arena. He is my first horse and I plan on completing the Fundamentals, Intermediate, and advanced series with him this summer..

How are you doing? I hope you had a nice weekend. It's really nice here, cool but not too cold and some warm wind. My friend and I rode on Saturday and Prince was really good. Eddie dumped my friend by spooking himself and bolting back home. She's alright though and got back on him. She's determined to learn to ride.

So, you're entering Remington in a costume class? Have you decided what you're doing yet? I've never done that but I'm thinking about entering HC's online one.

Prince is a smart horse and since I started riding him again he's been the perfect gentleman. When Eddie spooked we were cantering and immediately Prince slowed down to make sure things were okay. He didn't run off or try anything bad. After my accident he wasn't ridden for a month. He loves being ridden and I'm wondering if he associated his bad behaviour with not getting to be ridden and that now he's on his best behaviour so it doesn't happen again. I don't know. Perhaps i give him too much credit. What do you think?

Please, please do get a helmet to ride your horses. I'm a fairly good rider and an accident can happen to anyone. I'm pretty sure that I would be dead if I hadn't been wearing my helmet. It was broken and cracked all over! That could have been my head.

Many of you know that Pixie Dust's (101958) owner, Joanna, died a week ago on the 23rd of September. I had known her for 3 years on the HC and counted her among my good friends. Never once did she ever complain about being sick or disabled and was always good moral support to all those in need. I encourage you to check out her obituary online by searching Joanna Helen Wicke. I find her story very touching and inspiring. If we could all be so strong and considerate.

I made a short tribute video for her on here and would love for you to stop by and leave a comment. The video is called, Pixie Dust: In Memory of Joanna. I would like to make another one with the help of my HC friends. If you want to be involved please tell me. I plan to put the video together next weekend and would love to have some tribute photos from you of you and/or your horse with a note. If you have difficulty making this type of photo just let me know and i'll make one for you to include in the video.

Rest in peace, Joanna. You will never be forgotten. Leaving you a vote in her memory.

P.S. On another note, I entered a photo of Eddie in Dover Saddlery's online photo contest. I would love to have your vote and you only need to vote once. The contest ends soon so the sooner you can vote the better. And if you would pass it along to your friends I'd appreciate that so much.

The contest is at www.doversaddleryphotocontest.com. No spaces or dashes. He is on page 10 in the Best Black & White category. The title is, "Tall, Dark, and Hansom."

Thank you!!!

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

How are you doing? Have you been riding lately? I finally got to ride again after one month of being grounded by the doctor. On Thursday I rode Eddie and it sure felt great to be back in the saddle. It felt like all was right in the world again. Even though Eddie is MUCH bigger he's also a lot safer. I've been driving all three horses all month and I love doing that too but I like to be able to do both! And my brain didn't turn into mush from his big trot. That's what happened when I tried to go jogging a couple of weeks ago. I guess it was too early then.

Thanks so much for your kind words of support. It's been a month now and I feel a lot better but still I'm having headaches and brain lapses. At least now I have an excuse when I do something stupid!

I finally got to see my helmet for the first time last week and realized how bad it looked. Glad that wasn't my skull! It's all cracked up the back, and then splits into 3 more cracks going over the top and sides. Good thing I was wearing it!

I think now that perhaps Prince is and was having some trouble with hives and allergies. His skin is tender and he has some bumps and welts on him. So, perhaps the saddle felt uncomfortable? I don't know but I like to think it wasn't just him being bad.

I hope that all is safe and well there. Has it cooled down at all? It's much cooler her, to the point that it almost froze a couple of nights ago. But it may heat up again. We shall have to see.

I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed some horsey time. Here's a vote for you.

How are you doing? I'm so sorry that I haven't been on HC much the past month. I had just got caught up with my blogs after my biking accident when guess what! I did it again. Only this time it was from Prince.

I went all out this time. On Thursday the 11th of August, I was riding Prince and telling my friend who was riding Eddie that Prince just didn't feel right that evening. He was acting up and I thought I could perhaps slowly work out his kinks.

We went over a couple of jumps and suddenly upon landing the jump his head went down, his hind end went up and he had a major bucking fit. I wasn't prepared and went flying off. (Draught horses may be big but they're no less agile and athletic!) I remember falling but I don't remember landing. The next thing I remember is being surrounded by paramedics and being rushed by ambulance to the ER.

In fact I hear now that the entire Fire department, both ambulances, tons of private cars, and the sheriff were all there. Excitement in a small town?

Anyway, they asked me some really difficult questions. Like what's your name? Your DOB? Any allergies? Not easy questions in the best of circumstances but I did my best. I guess I was knocked out for about 10 minutes till anyone could get any response and then I drifted in and out for a long time afterwards. And vomiting for a couple of days.

It was a horrible experience and even now I still can't think quite straight but it's getting better. The doctor doesn't want me riding for at least a month or two. I guess another blow to my head really could be my last. I've been driving Pippin and I've driven Prince once. I'll drive him again tomorrow.

Pippin is doing great. This time last year he started swelling all over. I sure hope that it doesn't happen again. So far so good. You asked how I taught him to rear? I just held a treat up above his nose and up he went. It was easy! I'm not sure that would work too well with a normal sized horse!

Here's a vote for you and it's great to be finally catching up on HC. With my 3 profiles I have a combined 8 pages to catch up on!

P.S. Acorn, a baby squirrel we rescued last year just had her 1st anniversary. She would love a visit if you feel so inclined. Her page is 188686 on the SAC.

Thank you so much for congratulating Pippin on his win for horse of the day. It's always nice when it's a surprise. To celebrate I gave Pippin a thorough wash, cleaned all his harness, and took some video of him running in the forest. He's looking great in his summer coat and he has many new spots again this year. Especially on his face.

A couple of dogs, including Melian, and one of the cats got washed too. I guess it was wash day!

Pippin is a really good boy. We had him loose in our unfenced half of the property yesterday so we could film him and he took off a couple of times with Melian at his heels but came right back when we called him. It was about 100 degrees but he was reasonably patient and reared for pieces of bread, played dead, and rolled around on the gravel. I think he has resigned himself to the fact that he lives with weird people and he just has to go along with them!

Thank you again and here's a vote of appreciation! Try to stay cool!

P.S. I tried to write earlier but we had a big power cut yesterday! Too sunny?

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