I had just started riding when my friend who was teaching me bought him and it was love at first sight she gelded and broke him for me. even though we have had our ups and downs i don't think I'll ever have another like him.

Have a wonderful day ♡
The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. The picture today was taken 8/2012. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. We haven’t camped out in nearly 2 years, and that is when I can try to swim with the horses. It’s too hard to try swimming when I day ride because of the drive home (driving wet is no fun) -ha ha =) Deacon is my true water baby-he will actually swim with me and never try to lie down. I have also found that Whiskey hates for any type bug to fly in his face-so needless to say while we ride in the open if there are grass hoppers or butter flies, regular fly’s he tosses his head slightly. It doesn’t bother me now but it used to. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Wow! Everyone got HOTD all at once! Thanks!
Had a great time yesterday do some more in-hand jumping with Tarnation. Today I worked some more with bathing Rocky, because he pretty dirty. Then I went to let him graze and he bucked as we were walking just out of pure energy. So I put him in the round pen and he ran and ran. I couldn't get him to slow down. After awhile I caught him and rode him a bit. Then were roping cows in the biggest arena and he was very interested so we went over and checked it out. Then turned him and Tarnation out. So it was a really good day.

Here is a good night vote.
My oldest son is riding Fancy in our profile photo. Cowboy and his oldest brother rode in the local Easter parade this weekend.
I have worked with Fatima bridling and listening to the bit from the ground. She does not act like she knows much. But that little Trigger acted kind of like that when we got him. But it did not take long before Trigger was doing very well.
It has been a very busy week. I might not be online again tomorrow because it is the day of my aunt's funeral.

Finally that Saturday morning rolled around. I could hardly sleep the night before. Everything was running threw my head about what I was going need and about if I had everything ready for his arrival to our place. I kept thinking about how alpha Deacon was and how they would get along. After all they have road a thousand miles of trails together. . The more I thought, the more I felt like after the ride we would come on home instead of camping. I wanted to get him home and on our property to make this dream come true for me. I had never rode Whiskey until the day I bought him, can you believe that!!! It did not matter to me how he rode at all, I wanted him and that was that! We had a nice ride that day and came on home. Cliff broke out his tools and started working around the barn. Today’s picture is of Whiskey’s first comedy show for us. He said (ha ha) “Dad, I can bring this orange Home Depot bucket to ya, I know it has feed in it for me!” Enjoy! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Have a GREAT weekend !
Today’s picture is the picture Karla was going to post on craigslist & the first picture I ever had of Whiskey of my own until he became mine. When I speak of Whiskey my heart totally melts. I can get side tracked easily talking about him…so needless to say, we rode many times and camped a many a night. SO nearly 6 or 7 months later I received a call at work and it was Karla. My heart sunk, I knew she was going to say Whiskey was for sale. At that time Cliff was out of work (construction-you probably know how that goes) I was scared to ask how much they were asking. She told me what they were going to post him for on craigslist and I knew I could not afford that price. I told Karla I could not pay that price but to wait and not post until I could try a few options. She said right then that “sense you are a friend and we know how much you want and love him here is what we will sale him to you for”!!! It was like-woohoooooo! It was a price I could actually afford (not really but hey). I will get as many phone votes in over the weekend as I possibly can, mainly Sunday but will try to get some on Saturday; I will catch you up on Monday! Riding at Lake Whitney Saturday& will meet Cheryl and Cisco!!
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Good morning =)
As we ate lunch and rested, Whiskey walked over to me several times. He would nuzzle my hand (at the time I didn’t know he was a treat hound) and I felt as if we bonded and we were linked in some way. I told Karla right then and there that if they ever sold Whiskey to please contact me first. He has marbling on his lower legs that are silver, chocolate and nearly liver color (see his profile picture for today). It amazes me to still look at how he is marked; he is just absolutely beautiful-but I’m parcel!!! He is our escape artist, the one that can get into or out of ANYTHING; such a smarty pants and a treat hound lol. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

whiskey is sending hugs & love
Monday we left off about Whiskey’s color and me with 5 hundred questions for Karla! Here we go…That poor girl had never met me before and I could not shut up :) I then walked over and looked Whiskey right in the eye and he looked back into mine and my heart sunk. His beauty was striking and the color was outstanding. He had a smart, sharpness about him-I’m sure he was thinking “what in the world is she doing”. The ride finally got underway; usually everyone has me ride out front and calls me the trail boss! Deacon is a faster walking horse but can ride in the middle or behind after the first hour or so. Well, here comes Rio & Whiskey with their smooth selves!!! They just gaited their smooth self’s right past me & Deacy. I watched Whiskey and noticed he didn’t quite move the same as Rio but still a difference from a QH. 2 hours into the ride we decided to rest a few minutes in a place we call “Carol’s lounge”. We have names for all our spots we ride to rest or to take a break out there because it’s so big. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Whiskey would love your support for his HOTM run
In 2008 the decision was made after a talk with our boy’s and Cliff. It was time for me to get back on my horse journey. I purchased Deacon in March 23, 2008 and then bought Whiskey in May 2010. When I run Deacon I will tell more about the 1st 2 years back on my journey. Now that you have some back ground on me and my journey I will start Whiskey’s story with me. As many of you know I trail ride and use to camp with the horses all the time, now we just day ride. Hoping this spring sometime to camp again-fingers crossed =) It has been 2 years sense we have camped out with them. We would camp at Mccown or Plowman Valley at Lake Whitney Texas or at Reynolds Creek Lake Waco, Texas. During those times I have met a lot of people and their different type of horses. On one Oct. weekend we had some friends of Bill’s that was coming that I had never met. I asked Bill as we all were getting our horses ready for our ride that day, what type horses did these friends have? He said Rocky Mountain horses…I said hummmm, never heard of that breed. The thoughts in my head about this breed had me so curious. Now tomorrow we are into his story fully….hang in there! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Early year’s cont. My brother-n-law took Tawny for me and kept her until she passed away in 2002. 2 years after the kick in the back I was brave enough to buy this smaller paint- Welsh mix. She was a beautiful tri-colored paint her name was Kallie. She was gentle and slower moving. She was fat of course ha ha. I didn’t have everything I needed (trailer, truck and knowledge). I had the property and a neighbor that would help me out. She had a quarter horse & we would ride the country side all around our properties. I had hoped to do more and learn more with horses but I was young and full of myself! Anyway, I then met someone and started dating and from there I got out of horses. That was about April 1991 when I sold Kallie. Then came along the start of my family in Nov 1992! The rest of our story will be of this last 7 years that I have had Deacon, Whiskey & Rocket (Rocket is Cliff’s horse). Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Here's a quick vote from Buddy! We would like to congratulate Page on winning April HOTM, we hope you enjoy your reign! Buddy's still doing good, I'm hoping to ride him tomorrow, we will see how that goes. The indoor arena got some more sand in it today to try and make it not so "squishy" and the outdoor arena got scraped of all of it's snow. I guess it's time they start preparing it to have it all ready for the spring welcome show, which I think is sometime this month.

The weather here is fluctuating still. It was cooler out this morning, only because of the wind, and there was a light snow. It's supposed to be nicer tomorrow and feel like -7 celcius. But, by tuesday and wednesday it is supposed to be 15 and 16 degrees! I can't wait, and hopefully it stays that way becuase then maybe I can go for a nice ride outside with Buddy! Hope everyone is doing well, and enjoying spring so far.

-Buddy & Jasmine

Congratulation’s Queen Paige “Nuttin But Good” our April HOTM! Here we go with our campaign with Whiskey 237221 to be May 2014 HOTM! I need everyone’s support so vote on his page daily please!!! Every other weekend I am not around a computer so I will phone vote as many as possible, also 1 x a week that I will phone vote :) I will start my story with why I have and will ONLY have such well trained and gentle geldings, then I will start how Whiskey & I became each other’s very best friends along with some Rocky Mountain facts about the breed ♡ * Rocky Mountain Horses are slow to mature and do not reach their full size and weight until about five to six years of age. Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: "Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn." (Quoted by Lewis Grizzard in Kathy Sue Loudermilk, I Love You)

Happy Spring vote for you. We are glad Spring is finally here!

I took Fancy out so Fatima could eat in peace and what would you think! Fatima did not think to take advantage of the peaceful time she had to eat. She cried for Fancy. So did Trigger! What gives? Fancy bosses Trigger and Fatima and she makes sure they both get plenty of exercise by chasing them around. Why do they cry for her when I take her out???

I imagine you have seen this same behavior. Horses just do not think like we do.

Have a blessed and pleasant night
love Fancy and herd

Here is a vote from Fatima.
Good evening and thank you so much for voting me HOTD. School began 3 hours late because of the icy weather we had last night, so we peeked into HorseChannel before leaving for school. We were surprised to see me in the spotlight this morning. I am happy in my new home. I just wish that Fancy would not be so bossy. Sometimes she is nice though. We get treats and attention here. It has been a long time since I had a lot of grain. I love my grain. I even try to eat with Fancy in her bowl. She let me get a morsel and then she chases me away. Trigger is hardly ever mean. But he takes Fancy's side when things get touchy.
Well, I just wanted to leave a blog to say thank you for all the kind blogs and friendship. HorseChannel sure is a great place!
Have a great night

HI!!!!
Thank-you SOOOOOO much for making Outlaw HOTD!!!!! It means SO much to me to hear all of the thoughtful comment; especially the ones about not giving up hope of owning him one day, too <3 Those touch me deeply!!!! Because I don't have a lot of time and there are so many people to thank, forgive me for not personalizing the comments!! But here's a vote for all of you to thank-you for such an amazing day!! Sadly tho, because I've been sick this past week with Flu B, I haven't been out to the barn on forever and can't go see Outlaw (or any of the horses!!) and give him some extra treats and love...but as soon as I am better I will defiantly be telling him about his special day and about all of the wonderful people who love him!!

Again...Thank-you SO much for giving Outlaw HOTD!!!

Love,
Bella and her Herd <3
