☆ 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.

☆ 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!

(}—{) We ended up getting a light sprinkle Thursday evening. After I went to Tractor Supply & the grocery store Lizzy came over and we had a really nice ride on Rocket and Deacon. Whiskey is at the equine hospital staying a few days. He scratched his eye somehow. I really don’t know how or why he does that so much but the other 2 never do???? Any way Doc says he is doctoring it 2x’s a day with an antibiotic and giving banamine 1 time a day. Cliff may pick him up today or Monday. It is so hard putting meds in their eyes. I can do once its under control. I just can’t stand to touch his eye when it hurts so much. He took him in Thursday Morning so hopefully he can come home today. I miss him and so does Deacon and Rocket. Whinny’s, love, hugs and we left you a vote…..

Deacon would love your support for HOTM!
♡ after my kids got to be 15 and 16 (2008) we had a family talk about them getting new computers or me getting a horse. We agreed that I had gone long enough without having a horse! So a friend of mine that trail rides all the time helped me to find a good gentle gelding. She introduced me to Deacons owner/trainer Bill and I fell in love the moment I saw Deacon.. I know I got a late start but better late than never. On my days off work I will try to phone vote folks but please stop and vote Deacon even if I can’t get to everyone. I am getting his story together. This was a last minute decision I made soooo thank you for your support :)

HI
Wow, I can't believe I was gone for so long!

Thank you so much for HOTD, I'm so sorry my thank yous are so late.

Okay so I'll catch everyone up on what's going on.

1st: The 10th of October was my birthday, which I got to spend with my family and Shawn, it was a good day, nothing fancy. The next day I had a private lesson, just Shawn and myself with my new instructor! I finally found a new barn!!! She is a very nice lady, she does eventing and also rescues horses then gets them into new homes.
For my first lesson we worked on my dressage position and trotting without stirrups. I lost my balance at one point and somersaulted off of my horse, I tucked and rolled, landing on my back and shoulder. My helmet is scraped up a tiny bit, but not damaged, my elbow, arm, neck, and chest are a different story. I can't turn my head in one direction completely, but I'll come out of it, just a bit of whiplash, I've had it happen before.
Shawn did alright, he can't keep his heels down to save his life, but he wasn't really trying either.

My horse for the lesson was Phoenix (See my new pic's) he's a 8 year old 16.2 hh Thoroughbred/ Hanoverian cross gelding, he's a lovely brown and getting his winter woolies in. He's very sensitive to leg and hand aids, so I have to be careful with him. He was one of the rescues Virginia kept as a lesson horse.

Shawn got Amadeus, a 14.2, 9 year old bay Arabian gelding. He's very quiet and well mannered. He was given to Virginia by his owner and is a sweet little guy.

2nd: I'm in the process of still looking for a job, I've put in applications all over town, so hopefully I'll get something soon, especially with the holiday season coming up soon.

3rd: I'm finally doing better with my back, I officially threw it out about 5 times within 8 weeks and now am on the mend, I can lift 40 pounds again with no real problem, but I'm still wearing a brace for heavy lifting.

4th: I've been far more active on other forums as it's easier for me on the other websites, but I still come here and check everything as often as possible.

I hope everyone is doing great and want to give you all my love, hugs and votes. :)

Come visit me, TJ (And friends).

Thank YOu for FANCY's HOTD
Here is a vote for you :)

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Born to SpOOK!!!
Q. What was the witch’s favorite subject in school?
A. Spelling!


Fancy is doing fine. She slowly adjusted to sharing her home with Trigger and then Fatima. Now she is slowly adjusting to being alone again.
I have been overwhelmed by a few things that happened in my life. Even though I didn't log in, I have continued to stop by almost daily for a peek at HC. I literally, have to get back on my horse, as they say. Both Fancy and I need that.

So much has happened here on HC. You guys really keep things moving. I pray every day that life is kind to you and you are doing well.
I will try to log in more. I have to get back in the saddle, in more than one way.

Have a blessed night,
Love Frances & Fancy

We brought our slant load trailer to pick Spangle up. A little excitement on the way, we had a blowout on the trailer! Thankfully we didn’t have Spangle yet. We changed the tire and went and got Spangle. When we arrived, Spangle looked a little chubbier than he did before(He was chubby before too), but that was ok. They said he was a great loader. They were wrong. It took a little while to get him in the trailer, but we did it.

Come visit me, Spangle: Thank you for Dec. HOTM!!!, Zilker & Rose.

How we found/bought Spangle:
We needed a horse to keep Rose company, but we also wanted a horse for my mom to ride. I found Spangle on Craigslist. We went to look at him. He was the perfect size for my mom and was calm. My mom also liked his personality. A week after going to look at him we brought our trailer to pick him up… More tomorrow!

I lunged the horses yesterday. Spangle did great! I expected him to be a little grumpy, but he wasn't! He was good. Rose was her normal frisky self:)
