Appaloosa Horse from Rockford, IL


About Me

Active within 214 Days

I am from Rockford, IL and I've been a Club Horse member for 6 years and 3 days

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

Age: 17 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.

My Horse's Achievements: She has foaled twice, both were before I bought her.

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!

Update (September 2014): Luna has become the ideal trail horse. She will ride on roads with traffic, I have ridden her to carnivals and festivals full of crowds with no problems, and last summer, I even rode her through the drive-thru of a Dairy Freeze!! There's no where I can't take her.

Update (January 2015): I've taught Luna a few tricks, including smiling on command and the beginning of the Spanish Walk.

Update (July 2015) I've started to learn to ride Luna with no saddle or bridle! She's doing so well, I'm really proud of her. I'll upload pictures soon.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Clover! And those soft pastel mints.

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

Hi Cindy
Good Morning, nice to see you and Luna on the quiz page, so happy you are still around, we are too. I lost Charlie to colic early this December, my heart is broken, can't seem to shake the sadness. Sterly took it hard too, we had to lease a mini for her to have some company. Hope all is well, Love and a vote for Luna, Donna Lee

A Vote for You!!
Its been raining here for the last few days too. Not hard, just enough so if you are working outside, you will get wet if outside too long. Along with the rain, its been cold for summer, in the 50's and breeze too. Horses and steers love it, and the winds keep the bugs off them.

Come visit me, Mistic, Willow & Whisper.

It’s August 2012 now. Lollipop seemed to be having more and more trouble with her feet. We had been watching her pretty closely the past few months. She was laying down more in the pasture and for longer periods of time. We of course talked to the farrier about her, but he said since the coffin bone had already rotated, nothing could be done to stop it. There of course were options like certain type of horseshoes that would help with the pain. Early on we did buy her some boots to wear whenever we rode. We also had her on a herbal supplement , called herbal bute. This stuff really helped her. But we knew it was only a matter of time. She started having trouble coming into the barn to eat. We would have to go out to her in the pasture and feed her. This was hard to watch. My husband made the decision that something had to be done. (Left a vote)

Now let’s see…oh yes it is the year 2012. June 1st and Lollipop’s colt, Ace, is now one year old. He is a handsome little fellow and so good to. We never even had to wean this one. We tried once separating him by putting him in a little pen, but he jumped the fence to be with his mom. Lollipop pretty much weaned him herself. We just left them together in the pasture with the other horses. Ace was eating feed early on. Lollipop was pretty old at this point and she was slowing down. She was having trouble with her feet, she had foundered several years earlier and the coffin bone in her hoof had rotated. We still rode her on occasion but not often and not for long periods. We would soak her feet in buckets of water with apple cider vinegar and rub her legs with absorbine. She loved the pampering.

So sorry I haven't been on in a couple of days. The internet was disconnected to the laptop. Being computer illiterate, I had no idea what was wrong. Planning to buy a cheap laptop around the end of August. I won't be able to use Austin's after the 24th of next month, because he starts back to school. Sadie's doing well. Love and a vote. <3

So good to hear from you. Yeah, seems like "heat" is the word everywhere. Water, for horse and human sounds like a good idea. I bet Luna would love to join you in the pool, lol. A couple of our horses would dearly love a pond or pool too.
well, hope you're having a good weekend. Take care.

Hi Cindy, so good to hear from you, sounds like Luna is doing well. We got thru the winter and everyone is doing great. Sterly struggled a bit but after all she is 32, she needs a bit of help here and there, Love Donna Lee
