Appaloosa Horse from Rockford, IL

About Me

Active within 26 Days

I am from Rockford, IL and I've been a Club Horse member for 2 years, 11 months and 20 days

Nicknames: Her ApHC registered name is A Special Dominique, but I just call her Luna (as in Luna Lovegood).

Age: 14 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Appaloosa Horse

Height: 15.1, which is just the right height, because now her legs are long enough to reach the ground.

Color: Blue roan leopard Appaloosa. She has black legs and black ears which are really cool looking!

Type of Riding: Mostly trail and pleasure riding.

To see the wonders of man, travel by car.
To see the wonders of God, travel by horse.

HOTD Sept 21 2011
HOTD Oct 9 2012
HOTD Nov 3 2013

Update (Aug 2013): We are doing trust building and trick training exercises.

Update (Oct 2013): Luna had always been kind of spooky on the trails, especially when we rode out alone without other horses. But since I've been doing the trust exercises with her, now she is showing so much more confidence. I am very proud of my big ol' girl!

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Clover!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Trail ride with other horses, belly rubs, and being walked on a lead.

Pet Peeves: She hates bits, so I ride her bitless everywhere.

My Horse's motto: Trail riding? I have an App for that!

Job 39:19-22
Do you give the horse his might?
Do you clothe his neck with a mane?
Do you make him leap like the locust?
His majestic snorting is terrifying.
He paws in the valley and exults in his strength;
he goes out to meet the weapons.
He laughs at fear and is not dismayed;
he does not turn back from the sword.

How We Met

I have loved horses, especially Appaloosas, my whole life. As a teen, I took lessons, went to horse camp, read horse books, and drew horse pictures. But I never had one of my own. I had to be satisfied riding other people's horses.

Fast forward 35 years: I switched my auto insurance from Geico to State Farm, and I saved enough money that I could finally buy my dream horse! I saw a For Sale ad on the internet, and I HAD to go see her. She became mine on September 3, 2011

Hey Luna!
There's been a lot going on at the barn lately! Yesterday, the barn owner told me to start working with a horse named Marla. Marla is a bit of a brat, especially from getting away with all that she has. Her owner is a little girl in 3rd or 4th grade who doesn't do much with her. Marla has become pushy and somewhat disobedient so I am going to be working with her to correct her behavior. She's been doing mostly walking, and the occasional trot. Today, I took her out and did some ground work. When she realized she couldn't push me she was listening very well. Then I lunged her, and walk/trot was excellent. The canter, however, could not even be called a canter. As soon as she did, she sprang up in bucks and rears... Let's just say she'll be fun when I start riding her next week.
Anyway, Marla and Rosie are in the same pen. As soon as I opened the gate to let Marla in, Rosie pinned her ears at her and got very upset. I finally got Rosie clear of the gate and let Marla in.. And then Rosie chased after Marla. Jealousy problems much Rosie? I put Marla's halter away and got Rosie's and as soon as I walked back into the pen Rosie walked right up to me. I was like "Aww Rose, you just want me all to yourself don't you?" She's such a sweetheart.
Well it has been a fabulous day!
Hope yours was too!
Left a vote & lots of love!

Come visit me, Rosie (& her rescue story)).

Pretty Girl!

Had a bad night. My daughter was out with her friends after prom and someone hit her car. Was in the ER until 5 this morning. She's really sore but don't remember much except the man was on the phone and didn't even attempt to stop or avoid the collision. Apparently she hit her head and possibly blacked out for a few seconds since things are not clear to her. She was hit on the drivers side but I haven't seen the car yet to know how much damage it got. The other two girls were not injured thankfully. I just don't know how much head trauma a person can take. She still suffers from headaches from the two concussions last year from soccer! Poor kid! But thank the Lord it wasn't worse.

Decorated by nature, the origins of the Paint Horse in North America can be traced to the two-toned horses introduced by the Spanish explorers, descendants of horses from North Africa and Asia Minor. In 1519, the Spanish explorer Hernando Cortes sailed to the North American continent to find his fame and fortune. Along with his entourage of conquistadors, he brought horses to help his men travel across a new world in search of riches. He left behind a profound legacy - the bloodstock that would provide the foundation for a variety of unique, distinct, American-bred horses. According to the Spanish historian Diaz del Castillo who traveled with the expedition, there were two uniquely marked horses. One of the 16 war horses that carried Cortes and his men was a pinto with white stockings on his fore feet. The other was described as a dark roan horse with white patches. These were the first known recorded descriptions of early Paint Horses in the New World. These horses bred with native American mustangs and by the 1800's the foundation was laid for what is today the American Paint Horse breed.

Hooves crossed for Whiskey to be ~ May HOTM ♡
<)___~ Whiskey will return to the Doc on May 20th for his next set of x-ray’s. I feel he will be just fine, last dose of bute yesterday and I think in 2 days will tell a lot of how he is but I can’t know for sure until the next visit. I want to thank you all for all the amazing support throughout the month of April. I hope you enjoyed his story and I surely hope I can tell you many more story’s in the future of he & I riding together…God bless you all…..I honestly did not realize how difficult and demanding running for HOTM could be until now! Not having a computer at home really made this challenging for me, so again I cannot say thanks enough, sending love to you & your herds!!!!!!!
Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed! In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.
TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it! Hoping to see him as the top horse tomorrow!!!!!

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!

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!

Our story continues. After looking at several horses I had found a beautiful Palomino mare (I knew you would be surprised Marion & the Blondie’s) her name was Tawny. She had a white blaze & 4 white socks. During that time frame I had attended several Ray Hunt seminars. Man he was awesome (RIP Ray). After having her for some time I wanted to breed her to this beautiful stallion (deep dark chestnut QH). The Handler of the stallion asked me to release my mare and leave the paddock area, I thought ok…they were pretty far from me, but it seemed strange that I should let her go-at the time I had trust in these people….??? I prefer not to go into all the details (I didn’t and still don’t know much on the breeding side of horses-learned good lesson about people and stallions that day)-after releasing Tawny I turned to walk away but the handler must have lost control because the stallion kicked me in the back and burst my left kidney and tore my spleen. Yes, I almost died. They rushed me in for emergency surgery. I spent 2 weeks in the hospital; I now only have one kidney. I actually lost 7 units of blood internally, like I said I’m lucky to be alive. I trusted that person with the safety of myself and my horse but I guess my judgment needed a little adjusting! I will continue the story on Saturday, remember-phone votes tomorrow! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

I will explain how I came about choosing my Whiskey and Deacon so it takes us Wwway back~~~~~ lol ~ I got out of the Navy in 1986. I knew I wanted to get a horse at the time and I wanted to try barrel racing. I had a friend in California (last place I was stationed) that was running the circuit barrel racing and a boyfriend riding bulls so I guess that is what made me want to try barrels. I really just wanted a horse to care for and ride because I loved them so much. I moved back to Texas and started my search. I met a lady where I started working that raised quarter horses and she had a beautiful dark bay mare that I started riding, her name was Fanny. She was very gentle and easy to handle. My sister said I could put a fence up on her property and use their garage to convert into a stall and storage area. So I went to work with a few friends and converted this place and added one stall and a tack area. It took a few months to get everything ready so the lady let me make payments. Once she was paid off, and the property was ready I brought her home with me. Things just didn’t work out for Fanny & me. I’m sure you all can relate to the fact that some horses and humans are not a match. That is how it was with her, just didn’t feel right. The hunt was on and a new year began 1987 ~ Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

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!

Thanks for the votes. Voted tonight as well! Had a beautiful day...I think spring has sprung!! (Unless it's fooling us again!)
Going to start ground work again and daily riding this w-end. We did stretches, etc., during the winter and 3 10 minute bareback rides-that's it! Do not have an indoor unfortunately and I do not like riding hit and miss. Know what I mean?-I hate to ride one or two days and then go 6 weeks without riding!
My cousin got her first horse in September and says any day suitable for riding is good to do....I disagree. You can't get a horse that is dormant like that, conditioned well. I think that creates more wear and tear on tendons, ligaments, and muscles and can lead to possible injury. What do you all think?

Hello, Jumping Beans is in urgent need of a new owner. The price of feed is getting expensive. So we must rehome the last two rescues on the farm. Along with a couple of our lambs and calves. Donations are greatly appreciated at PM Farms in Kansas. We also have three rabbits needing to be rehomed. These rabbits are purebred Californians, great with kids of all ages from 1 month old to 18 years. They were born on November 4, 2013. The only way to reserve one of the rabbits, horses, calves or lambs is by calling Tamara Ukena at 316-217-1163.

Doing well here...hating the cold-again! No ride time yet because I want to be consistent when we start. My youngest daughter wants to start showing but I need the weather to cooperate so I can work with the horses on a regular basis....she doesn't see it the same as I do.
We got new chickies tonight! I have them in a huge rubbermaid storage container in the den! LOL!! We are supposed to be just above zero tonight so one heat lamp on them in the den, or multiple heat lamps and in the garage...hummm.....
They are sweet to listen to, so cute! Never started them out in the house before. Still would like to have a miniature horse in the house, housebroken though! Who wouldn't like a high shrilled neigh to wake up to?!

Cisco
Thank you all!!!! I will never know everything Cisco has been through, and I don't want to know. All I know for sure is his tongue had nearly been severed in half, probably either from a really harsh bit or having his head tied around, and his R eye socket fractured (again, don't wanna know). Steve said he's pretty sure at some point someone attempted to train Cisco to buck, to this day he WILL NOT tolerate a flank cinch. I believe that Cisco was loved and treated well early on, then things just went south for him. I'm also sure he's been through mutiple sales, with his striking looks and proud manner always finding a buyer that's sure he would be the one to "fix" him. I remember Steve telling me at one point that Cisco wasn't only PTSD, but MPD (multiple personality disorder) and probably Bi-polar to boot. One thing everyone has remarked on wherever we go, is how Cisco watches for me. Whenever I am in sight, his eyes follow me. It's an awesome feeling to have that kind of connetion with a horse. Eventually, I think Cisco would have been on one of those one-way trips to Canada or Mexico, instead we plan on continuing our adventures...
