My Horse Profile

American Paint Horse from Farmington, IA

Thalia

About Me

Active within 3 Days

I am from Farmington, IA and I've been a Club Horse member for 3 years and 10 days

Nicknames: Her registered name is Scoot n Skip. I named her Thalia from the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan, after the character Thalia Grace, daughter of Zeus.

Age: 12 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: American Paint Horse

Height: She is about 15 hands.

Color: Bay, with a blaze, and two socks.

Type of Riding: I would like to do Western, Showmanship, and trail riding, but can't ride right now due to back injuries.

My Horse's Achievements: Before I got her, she was used as a school horse for other girls my age (15), and I think that getting young girls started is something to be proud of.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Sugar cubes.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: She likes to whinny when I come into the barn, and search me for treats.

Pet Peeves: Being separated from the calves in the stall next to her. She thinks she's their mother :) She's also recently adopted piglets as well.

My Horse's motto: Slow and sweet gets a treat!

How We Met

She is my very first horse, I got her when my Grandpa took me to a horse auction. I saw Thalia knew she was perfect.

I was diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease in Nov. 2011, and have been unable to ride since then. My little brothers do ride Thalia occasionally, but she really is getting kind of fat and lazy ;)

Thank you to everyone for HOTD on 1.18.2013!!!!!

Deacon thanks you for your support :)
♥ I am off work this weekend. We pick up Whiskey today at 2pm. We will all feel so much better when he gets home. His eye needed to be doctored 2 times a day is why he stayed so long. I go to work before the sun comes up so I would have only been able to get it doctored 1 time a day. His final doctoring will be tomorrow. I do plan to ride Deacon at Lake Whitney tomorrow. I am hoping Lizzy will go so Rocket can go as well. I will phone vote everyone Sunday though so please vote each day and silent votes are so welcomed as well! Have a wonderful weekend <)__~

I know~this year went by FAST!!!
☆ As I have mentioned before, I have learned so much with Deacon and of course Whiskey & Rocket. Each horse has brought knowledge to me that has its own value. I think we all carry a special place for that 1st horse that is hard to describe ♥ the 1st year ½ I went trail riding, I experienced penning & cutting cows but my favorite has always been trail riding. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ☆

♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.

☆ Deacon’s registered name is “One More Special”, he surely is one special horse to me. Deacon was born with what people call a “prophet’s thumb”. It is an indention on the right side of his neck. I’m told it is from him lying on his hoof while in his mother’s womb. We thank you for your support during this HOTM run =) Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =) P.S. hoping to pick up Whiskey today!

(}—{) We ended up getting a light sprinkle Thursday evening. After I went to Tractor Supply & the grocery store Lizzy came over and we had a really nice ride on Rocket and Deacon. Whiskey is at the equine hospital staying a few days. He scratched his eye somehow. I really don’t know how or why he does that so much but the other 2 never do???? Any way Doc says he is doctoring it 2x’s a day with an antibiotic and giving banamine 1 time a day. Cliff may pick him up today or Monday. It is so hard putting meds in their eyes. I can do once its under control. I just can’t stand to touch his eye when it hurts so much. He took him in Thursday Morning so hopefully he can come home today. I miss him and so does Deacon and Rocket. Whinny’s, love, hugs and we left you a vote…..

☆ I have the same farrier for all these years and I have the same equine vet so my horses have really good care. I am very thankful that I can give my horses the best I can provide. Again Deacon started this journey for me and I have learned so much. I have learned how to pick hooves, clean sheaths, scoop poop, bath them from head to hoof, load, doctor eyes and cuts…and the list goes on! I have read and studied so much as well. The journey with the horses never ends and you can always learn more. I am off work tomorrow so I will phone vote as many as possible. There is a 20% chance of rain so I’m not sure if I will get to ride. I do have to run and pick up feed and stop by the grocery store, maybe a little final Christmas shopping. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ♡

♡ Oh the joy of shopping for our horses-it is too much fun. Once you get the saddle that fits your horse and you, you must then buy saddle pads and bridles and reins and halters and all things to match, to include YOU! Next I had to have the right pants (the right length), boots, shirts and of course my cowgirl hat! Now I had to shop for another horse for Cliff! What fun the horsey world is. I did find another horse but it wasn’t the right one for him. I sold him and Cliff found Rocket. What a match. He and Deacon got along so well. Then it was time to shop for Rocket!!! Love it ♡ Here is a hug & a Wednesday vote :)

♥ I know you all know and will relate to today’s information. I bought a saddle before I bought Deacon. It was a nice roping saddle which is not good for long trail rides. It was a little heavier then I wanted but like I said it was nice. It fit Deacon ok but I had to go (ha ha-just wanted too!)buy one that I had fit for him. I ended up with a Circle Y Flex 2 Topeka trail saddle, man is it lite and comfortable-best decision I ever made! Have a wonderful day :)

♡ after my kids got to be 15 and 16 (2008) we had a family talk about them getting new computers or me getting a horse. We agreed that I had gone long enough without having a horse! So a friend of mine that trail rides all the time helped me to find a good gentle gelding. She introduced me to Deacons owner/trainer Bill and I fell in love the moment I saw Deacon.. I know I got a late start but better late than never. On my days off work I will try to phone vote folks but please stop and vote Deacon even if I can’t get to everyone. I am getting his story together. This was a last minute decision I made soooo thank you for your support :)

LEFT A VOTE, THANKS FOR YOURS
We had a great day as HOTD, thanks for all the votes and visits. We are looking forward to another nice fall day today. The leaves are so beautiful, the colors are amazing this year, we are pretty much surrounded by woods so it is very pretty here. Just a quick update on Trev, he has decided that he is ready for work again. He started a new job last week, he likes it. It is an adjustment for sure. The only problem we see is transportation, he is riding his bike (he doesn't drive) in the AM, he starts at 7, it is an hour bike ride, the bus service doesn't go that far that early, however he can bus home at night, the city buses have bike racks. He is hoping to meet someone at work that he can catch a ride with, maybe someone close to his area. We really hope so, this travel arrangement will not work in winter...Have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Thank YOu for FANCY's HOTD
Here is a vote for you :)

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Born to SpOOK!!!
Q. What was the witch’s favorite subject in school?
A. Spelling!


Fancy is doing fine. She slowly adjusted to sharing her home with Trigger and then Fatima. Now she is slowly adjusting to being alone again.
I have been overwhelmed by a few things that happened in my life. Even though I didn't log in, I have continued to stop by almost daily for a peek at HC. I literally, have to get back on my horse, as they say. Both Fancy and I need that.

So much has happened here on HC. You guys really keep things moving. I pray every day that life is kind to you and you are doing well.
I will try to log in more. I have to get back in the saddle, in more than one way.

Have a blessed night,
Love Frances & Fancy

I got on the computer to check on an order from SmartPak, and saw the congrats in my email--hope Bub's not too upset! They are like a married couple. They bicker at each other, yet just try to separate them! I turned Ella out today first and she was zooming around, calling for him. I looked at him and said, "she's nuts".....he shook his head yes--the horse agreed!!

I rode Rose last night. We did some weaving. It was good.
I rode her bareback in her halter on Saturday. It was good:) I can now stop her with no rein:)
I had a lesson on Rose on Monday. We worked on Straights(one of the patterns) and Cloverleaf. It was good:)

My mom lunged Spangle yesterday. I lunged him the day before. He was pretty good.

I have a show this weekend with Rose. Will be prepping the next few days.

~ Dreams do come true... ~
One year ago, today, I was up early, a smile on my face I couldn't stop even if I wanted too. I peered down the drive way hours before the man would come. I walked the fence line, even though I'd done it a dozen times before. I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first horse. From five yrs. old I'd been a horse-crazy girl; and now I'd have a horse! It seemed like ages, but finally the man came. We owned a horse! We spent all day outside grooming, rubbing and loving our horse. That evening I sat outside as the sun went down, watching our horse graze in our front pasture. "Thank-You Lord. You've given me my dream!" I whispered into the fading sunlight. We got another horse not long after that, which made it all complete.
Today, one year later, we're spending the day together with our girls. We're going to have a wonderful time I know!
So today, I'll always remember that the Lord hears us, even a girl's wish for a horse.
Dreams to come true!
