♥ Congratulations to Angel HT on his victory making April 2013 HOTM!!!! We did get our pasture seeded Friday but the Coop closed at 3:00 and we did not get the fertilizer. It rained early Saturday morning so that was great. We will pick up and fertilize after work one day this week. Had friends over Saturday and we BBQ on the grill and visited. I did get to brush and curry the horses but did not ride. My son & grandson came over Easter Sunday that was wonderful. My friend Gail and I will haul out Friday to Reynolds Creek at Lake Waco to have an all-day ride and picnic.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were very busy days for me! I have been working with Fancy ground driving. Cowboy rides Trigger while I ground drive Fancy. Sunday, after church, we used the pool noodles in place of the cart shafts. Each day ground driving gets better! Fancy loves to keep moving, so we are working on her patience. We did get some great video that I hope to share with you in a few weeks.
The winds have been up all day and it is beginning to rain here right now. I did watch the news, this storm looks very serious. If you are affected by storm Sandra, be wise and stay safe. We love you♥

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!

Please remember a returning past member of HC and our Arabian friend MSU Summer Storm #244887. She was put down during the week of 10-26-2012.

We have plans of riding today, but I am not feeling up to a trip across town just yet because it is cool and gray outside. I guess if we were going, we should have left by now. LOL. It suits me just fine to stay home today. Oh, our annual Pig Festival is today also. Don't think I'll make that either. LOL! Bad me! I DO feel like spending time with Fancy at home though.

How is the weather at your house? We just might see showers from the storm today. If that Frankinstorm is near your area, DO STAY SAFE!

Have a safe day ✞

HISTORY OF THE MORGAN

While the offspring of Justin Morgan were taming the wilderness and building the country, they were also creating the standards by which other American breeds would become known. The stamina and vigor of the Morgan together with his excellent conformation and way of going helped make other American light horse breeds what they are today. The great speed of today's racing Standardbreds was produced by crosses to the fastest Morgan blood. in the 1860s, the Morgan stallion Shepherd F. Knapp was exported to England where his trotting speed became a byword. Today, many English Hackneys carry his name in their pedigrees. In American Saddlebreds, such famous champions as Edna May, Bourbon King, Rex Peavine, and Wing Commander trace to Justin Morgan. The foundation sire of the Tennessee Walking horse, Allen F-1, was a grandson of the Morgan stallion Bradford's Telegraph. In addition, many good Morgan mares were sent to Texas only to lose their breed identity in Quarter Horse bands, and to make the breed greater for it. The oldest of all American breeds the Morgan was strong enough to contribute greatly to almost every other American light horse breed while retaining its own identity across two centuries.


Yesterday my little brother Ethan and I went riding together again. We played gotcha last on horseback and had a blast chasing each other around. I also longed Sierra and she did really good.

Question of the day: Would you rather ride a lazy horse that you cant get to go faster than a walk or a disrespectfull horse that is always testing you and keeping you on your toes?

Dont forget to vote for Chaka# 215291 over on BC he still needs around 270 votes.

A big thank you to Sterl May and Royal Mes for giving Dakota vote 1,000!

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!

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.

The Morgan Horse - An American Legend
Justin Morgan was a living legend. In the manner of so many heroes, he began as an unremarkable colt and became the father of an entire breed of horses recognized for quality and dependability.
Born in 1789, Justin Morgan started life as a small, rough-coated colt known as "Figure." In 1791, he left his birthplace in Springfield, Massachusetts with his new owner, the soft-spoken schoolteacher Justin Morgan, by whose name the stallion eventually became known. Although his breeding was unknown (thought to be of Dutch, Thoroughbred, or Arabian breeding), the quality of Justin Morgan's ancestry showed in his straight clean legs; deep muscling over his quarters and shoulders; and fine, intelligent head with large expressive eyes and short, pricked ears. Add to these the quality of his movement, a thick but silky mane and tail, and a clean-cut throatlatch, and you have the conformation of the ideal light horse. Despite these fine qualities, Justin Morgan's lack of size was such that his debt-ridden owner found no buyers on their journey north to Randolph Center, Vermont. It was simply fate that no one but, his new owner realized what a little giant he was.


Question of the day: When buying a horse, how important is color?
Color really isn't really a factor for me, I care more about the horse's personality, however I do really like paints.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, and once again thanks a million for all your support!
