hello, little lady, missed you
We are happy to report Sterly looks good this morning, we left votes. I hate when she is off, she is so easy to read, so is Charlie. I realize that even a mild gas colic is upsetting to their systems and it takes a couple of days to get everything straightened back out. Because she is generally pretty healthy, just the usual "old age" stuff, I have always thought that if something takes her from me, it will likely be colic. So I have had a couple of real bad days too... We do what we can, nature takes care of the rest. Have a wonderful Easter, Love Donna Lee

SO GLAD U R BACK, MISSED YOU TONS
We left a rainy, cold it's going to return to snow vote, even the weather girl on TV last night said she just wished she could give a good forecast for a change...Looks like a "stay inside and get groomed day" their little paddock was starting to melt, I'm just glad we had good run off, so far no flooding in the barn. The next few days are below freezing again, so we have some ice, not good. I'm so jealous of all of you that can ride. Trevor is in the S L O W recovery stage. His great attitude is back, he said he is very anxious to eat solid food again...not just yet, one day at a time, thanks for all the prayers, we know it is not OVER yet...have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

I did not ride Saturday with friends because I had not ridden in weeks and I do not like to take Fancy out when I have not worked with her.
Young Cowboy is very excited for his 12th birthday tomorrow!
The changes to HC are very nice. I am happy to see it does not look like we have lost any friends here.

Fancy's latest video posted yesterday on HC. Hope you can view it!

Did you partake in any horse event during this first few days of 2013? It has been a bit muddy in our yard, so we have not :(

I enjoyed the rains, and the quiet times that came with it. The days might be a little cool to me, but we are finally expecting to see dry, sunny days again! The weekend is even expecting to warm up in the low 50's! That means we will have a chance of riding ☀

Into the new year with a vote ♥

COWBOY & TRIGGER, the Young Prince & King of January: I called Cowboy into the room and told him to read the computer screen. He read it and he said smiled. I asked him if he knew what it meant. He said Trigger won HOTD. I told him no, read it again. He asked me what is HOTM. I explained to him that means Horse Of the Month. He was very excited as he told me in his own 11 year old words that HOTM was a great surprise in addition to his birthday being Monday! Trigger was his usual calm ole self, just mellow and go lucky, and trying to get along with miss Bossy Pants, Fancy. Cowboy and Trigger send thanks for voting them Jan HOTM. I could not figure out who left their landmark votes. Any way we thank each of you for every vote!

LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/ Word of the day: Youngstock - A general term used for all equines old enough to bite, kick or run you over, but not yet old enough to dump you on the ground.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: "Why does rain drop, but snow fall?” (anonymous)

Good Morning! How has your week been? I am back on normal schedule until New Years. Along with cold temps, much needed rains have finally returned to North Carolina. We had quite a few days of rain and are expecting more throughout the upcoming week. We need some snow at our house this year! I know some areas are covered with snow! If snow is at your house, please be careful as you go about your daily activities. Today is a sunny day, but I was hoping to get some much needed horsey time. I have soo much to do today, I don't know what will happen. Fancy needs more of my attention than running out with a treat throughout the day.

17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:
18 "A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more."

A lot of you wanted to know which profile edit Pippin's Mom helped with. That edit is Cowboy & Trigger's profile photo for this day. My computer knowledge is extremely limited. I spent hoursssssss trying to put Cowboy & Trigger's image on the snowy background, it would not work. Finally I thought, Ask a FRIEND! And Pippin's mom did it! She is like a computer wizard! She put the two images together and she helped me learn how to make my own photos the same way!!!!!! I am certainly taking advantage of my new found computer skill. Hope you enjoy Cowboy Trigger's different HOTM campaign profile photos!

Friesian Horse History

The Friesian horse is unique, truly a breed to be proud of. It developed from a very old breed which was inherent to all of western Europe. It's the only horse native to Holland. Historically speaking, the Friesian horse has been influenced by eastern bloodlines and has often been threatened with extinction.
The armored knights found the Friesian Horse very desirable, having the strength, courage and heart to carry great weight and still maneuver precisely, in the face of the enemy. The Hungarian King Louis II used a Friesian Stallion on the battlefield on June 15, 1526. The Friesian was used as a war horse by Friesian Soldiers fighting with the Roman Armies, and later was used by knights and traveled all the way to the Middle East with the Crusaders.
The suppleness and agility of the Friesian Horse became sought after in the riding schools of Paris and Spain in the 15th and 16th centuries. In the middle ages, it was mainly a knight's horse, but in the 18th and 19th century the Friesian was especially famous as a trotting horse on short distances. The Friesian was so adapted as a fast trotting coach horse that it was, in fact, Friesians who invented trotting races over short distances during the 18th century.
At one time, the amount of registered Friesian Horses became even less than one thousand and the fate of the breed was uncertain. In fact, the number of Friesian Stallions reputedly was reduced to ONLY three, prior to World War I. Thanks to the single-mindedness and dauntless dedication of true Friesian horse lovers and Breeders in Friesland, a northern province of Holland, one can still appreciate the many facets of the Friesian horse today

Question of the day: What is one skill that you would like your horse to learn?

I would like to teach Dakota to pull a cart, but unfortunately I do not have a cart or a harness.

You only have a few days left to vote for Dakota,and winning HOTM would mean so much to us so please come vote for him!

HISTORY OF THE GYPSY VANNER

What were the reasons for breeding a small draft horse such as the Gypsy Horse? One such reason, to have a horse showy enough to complement the brightly colored wagons driven by the Gypsy breeders, was given above. But the Gypsy Horse was not just for show; he performed a vital function—pulling his family’s wagon. For this type of work, a heavy draught horse such as the Shire, which typically stands between 16.2 and 17.2 hands and weighs between 2,240 and 2,688 lbs, was overkill. Even the smaller Clydesdale was too much horse for this task. An even smaller draft horse such as the Gypsy Horse was capable of performing the work needed and required only a fraction of the feed needed to maintain the massive Shire. This need to create a draft horse capable of performing the relatively light work of pulling a wagon and needing minimal feed was the primary reason for the creation of the horse we call the Gypsy Horse.
While the Gypsy Horse was bred for the road, the nomadic life of the road further shaped him, both physically and mentally. By necessity, he was hardy, thriving on uncertain forage found at campsites as the Gypsy caravans traveled from place to place. These campsites most likely provided no shelter for the horses; his profuse mane, tail, and feathers provided protection from the cold and wet. He was an integral part of his family and so had to be tolerant and kind. He had to able to be handled and managed even by the family’s children. Any horse which behaved aggressively was immediately banished.
The American discoverers of the breed were Dennis and Cindy Thompson. While driving through the English countryside in 1994, they glimpsed an extravagantly feathered black and white stallion and stopped to inquire about him. Two years later, they imported the first two Gypsy Horse mares, and founded the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society, one of the breed's registries. Other registries include the Gypsy Horse Association, the Gypsy Cob and Drum Horse Association, and the Gypsy Cob Society of America. The Thompsons coined the name “Vanner” for this imported breed, and intended the name to refer not to all Gypsy-bred horses, but only to those which they felt embodied the vision of the breed’s originators, whom they sought to honor. Some lovers of this breed choose not to use the name “Vanner”, but rather prefer to use one of the other accepted names for the breed, Gypsy Cob or Gypsy Horse.

Question of the day: If you could change one thing about your horse, what would it be?

Have a great weekend!

HISTORY OF THE MORGAN( REQUESTED BY KOKO)

In the coming years, the offspring of these strong, willing, able light horses grew along with the young nation that was building itself upon hard work and determination. In the hands of American colonists, Morgans cleared rugged Vermont mountainsides and converted them into rich farmland. But they weren't mere workhorses, Morgans had the style and elegance to capture the admiration of any city horseman. While some Morgans earned their keep on the farm others were in high demand to become smart roadsters for Boston and New York financiers. When harness racing reached its heyday in the 1800s, the World's Fastest Trotting Stallion was Ethan Allen 50, old Justin's handsome great-grandson.
As America grew so did the feats of the Morgan. New England men answered the call of gold and headed for California on Morgans. In the Civil War, the famed Vermont Cavalry was mounted on Morgan horses. Not only did the Union's General Sheridan ride his Morgan Rienzi, Stonewall Jackson rode his Morgan, 'Little Sorrel,' for the Confederacy as well! In the Indian Wars, the only survivor in the Battle of the little Big Horn was Keogh's Morgan-bred horse Comanche. If the pathways of history are paved with the bones of the
horse, surely America's are paved by Morgans.


Question of the day: Do you blanket your horses during the wintertime?
I have never blanketed my horses and probably never will, but I know it makes a different if your horses are clipped.

Well, my goal for Dakota was to get 600 votes during the month of October, and thanks to you and all my other wonderfull HC friends he has already exceded his goal. I am hoping to see the big number 1,000 soon but I need your help so please come vote for my little guy!
Thanks so much for all your support!

I had a great Horsey day with Sadie. She's was so good. She even lifted 3 of her hooves for me to pick them. I had to work with the left front one until she gave in. Didn't take long. When I dismounted after our ride, my legs were tired from being out of shape. Felt like noodles. It's a good tired, tho'. Hugs and a vote.

HISTORY OF THE MORGAN( REQUESTED BY KOKO)

Over the next 30 years, the little bay stallion worked long, hard hours in the fields and on the roads of Vermont. Gradually, the local population began to talk about the feats of "the Justin Morgan horse". Standing just over 14 hands tall, Justin Morgan's exploits gained him fame because he was not as big as colonial workhorses nor as tall and long-legged as racehorses, yet he consistently outperformed both. There was the time he pulled a log no draft horse could budge, the day only he had the beauty, spirit and manners to carry President James Monroe on a muster-day parade ground; and the time he outran the most winning racehorse central Vermont had ever known, at least until that day.
Doing it all and doing it well, Justin Morgan remained sound of eye, wind, and limb throughout a lifetime of two ordinary horses. That should have been enough, but the stallion added still more: showy, ground-covering gaits with speed to spare at any one of them; a gentle disposition that made him safe enough for a child to handle yet spirited enough for any horseman, beauty men would to recall decades after his death; and a rare courage that made men who lost bets on him hit their flagons of rum and say, 'To the little Morgan!' and drink deeply.


Hi, how was your weekend? I had a pretty good weekend, a bit dreary though. We finally got some rain, not very much, but enough to at least wet the dust down. Of course when the ground gets a little bit muddy the horses have to roll, so I got them all brushed out. Thankfully Sierra doesn't roll very often yet.

Question of the day: If it is raining outside, would your horse rather stay out in the pasture or come into the barn?
Misty doesn't usually mind being out in the rain, but Sierra is a bit of a weenie and will run to her shed if she feels a few drops of rain. Dakota will usually stay out in his pasture unless it is really storming.

Have a great Sunday and dont forget to vote Dakota for your Nov. HOTM!

Maria, Dakota N the girls


PS.There is a bird named Chaka#215291 over on birdchannel that has been voting for Dakota, and he would like me to spread the word that he is running for BOTM.
