Appaloosa Horse from Rockford, IL


About Me

Active within 4 Days

I am from Rockford, IL and I've been a Club Horse member for 3 years, 4 months and 12 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.

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

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!

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.

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

David's sister, Jackie has lost her battle with cancer. She was a 5 year breast cancer survivor and this dreadful disease returned this fall, after lots of tests etc. it was determined to be in her liver, gall bladder and ovaries it was inoperable, in early December they gave her 3-6 months, she died on Sunday afternoon, with her family close by. Jackie spent her entire life giving to others, we called her Saint Jackie, she will be missed. Love Donna Lee

I want a good pair of western riding boots. I'll live in them. Lol. I'm not sure when Rick will get the shed up. With the Super Bowl, and the upcoming events, he has to work overtime. He works at a grocery warehouse. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, any day that includes food and alcohol, means no days off. He does have Friday, but says he's not doing anything. Understandable, but hard to wait. Austin and I went out to checkout the spot where I want it. Need to level the ground, Getting a good shovel this weekend, so I can start on it. Seems to take me forever to get something done. Ready to get in gear and take a picture of it......And thanks for the birthday wishes. Love and a vote.

I worked from 2 to close, Tuesday, but still had a nice birthday. Got a $20 tip. I told Rick I wanted money for boots. He said he wasn't giving me that much. Said he'd help put the shed up. That works. Austin works on the days I don't, so it's been hard to work on it. With the Super Bowl coming here, Rick's working overtime. Going to be crazy here. The traffic's going to be ridiculous. Thankful I won't be stuck in it. Love always and a vote. <3

Hi, left a vote. Got my new computer today. It has a touchscreen, that is hard to get use too.

Got barn time in today. Bad news, Zip's abscess blew today, must not have completely blown last time. Poor guy, he soaked for the first time today, he was great with it. He now has his own stall, no turnout for him for now. Amber of course, not happy about this at all! LOL!!!

More bad news, Sue called me while I was at the barn to inform me she can't pick up Zip for the clinic. Crap, trying to find him another ride. Ugg, life without a horse trailer is not fun.

Come visit me, Toby, Zip N Fire Please vote ZIP for Feb. HOTM! & Amber.

BJ was very attached to his grandmom especially. he looked for her for over a week after we had to put her down, which was so sad, but it was interesting to see the family dynamics. Gracie is herd boss, and BJ is herd gelding. she'll pin her ears at him and, typical of sons, he usually ignores her or counts on his cuteness to keep him out of trouble. sometimes it works, lol.
glad you had a nice ride in the snow. how do you keep the snow from balling up in her hooves? not that we get much snow down here, but ive never been able to ride in it due to hoof-balls. our snow is usually pretty wet too, which may make a difference.
hope you have a good tue. take care.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom,Gracie.
