How We Met

My Mom's friend gave her to us - she came from Arizona but was originally from VA. Cinnamon has a rare form of Navicular which actually makes little holes in her Navicular bones, it is only in her front feet right now but we do Digital X-rays every other year to keep tabs on it. I will not ride on days that she is limping, so I never know when I am going to get to. We have a wonderful blacksmith that is continually trying to help make her more comfortable & move better, he makes special shoes for her. I cherish every moment I spend with her though. I went away from riding for over 20 yrs and have spent the last five years getting back into it, which has been difficult since I do not get to ride on a regular basis. But we make the best of it!!!.

it was sunny after work and less windy-wind from the north & east rather then the south. Filled water tubs, turned out the boys to graze and put their feed up that I got on the way home. Just a nice evening before this silly weather hits us today and the next few days! Have a wonderful Sunday and here is a hug & a vote ♡ spring is just around the corner. I saw bloomed daffodil flowers yesterday in town!!!!

Come visit me, Whiskey & Deacon.

it is cold..
it was -11 at about 7:30 here. We waited about an hour to go out to feed the animals after that. It was still only about 1 out, but it was at least just a bit warmer.
We're supposed to get even more snow tomorrow here.

I bet Eli would love a candy apple, but then Cinnamon would be jealous. cinnamon can't have a lot of hard to chew treats. Any apples or carrots she eats have to be cut or broken into smaller pieces so she can chew them..

I've had it with WINTER...
It is still only -24 this morning, but no wind, thank God. I did get them out for a couple of hours yesterday when the wind shifted to the North. The barn is sheltered on the North, the sun was lovely and they need to be out. We are celebrating Family Day here in Ontario, love my long weekends, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

-25 C = --13 F
OMG, this is the coldest night of the winter so far, and I know I have mentioned how much I HATE winter, this temp is without the wind chill, you can't even imagine how much I do not want to go outside. I went to feed at 4AM, both Sterly and charlie had frost on their whiskers....I guess that answers my question as to whether they go out today or not, looks like NOT...we left a vote, Love Donna Lee PS our wind chill is -40 C

welcome back! It is great to hear from you ") I had an extreme HORSEY day yesterday! I did all things horse’s other than making dinner. Everyone had a spa day. I washed manes and tails and brushed and groomed. I was so tempted to shave faces and hocks and such but I had to remind myself that it is still winter not spring! I had a ride on both Deacon & Whiskey. We did our little 30 minute work out that I do when I don’t haul out to trail ride. Then they got their spa treatment and they all got wormed as well. Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

Remember me? I haven't been online much the past month. I don't really want to talk about me but suffice it to say, not only have I been really busy but I've been sick too. I'm on my 11th week of antibiotics for a sinus infection and I may need surgery to finally fix it. Ugh!

Anyway, want I really wanted to write about was my amazing drive with Pippin yesterday. It was cold and he had lots of energy. I hooked him up to the cart over his yak like coat which looks really funny as the harness sinks in and then he has fur sticking out all over the place!

He hasn't been that energetic the past few weeks since he's not as fit as usual. I even considered removing parts of the harness for comfort and convenience but decided not to.

And a good thing too! We drove about 3 miles and galloped at top speed for at least mile! Wow, that was so exhilarating. He was probably running about 22mph which is pretty good for a 30" horse! Of course, Melian was running alongside like we were going sooooo slowly.

I was so very happy. Not just because it was a nice drive, but because Pippin was happy and energetic. I haven't had a drive like that since he got sick from those nasty enteroliths early this year.

This afternoon I took him for a 6 mile bike ride. He loved it and was very hungry when we got back!

And, Eddie's knees are looking great. The worst one is now almost completely healed. Only time will tell if the fur grows back though.

Did you get to ride this weekend? I hope you did or at least spent some time with your horses. Here's a vote for you.

P.S. Sorry no personal blogs tonight. My bed is calling out to me. Will try later!

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, for your support this month with Eddie's campaign for horse of the month. I apologize for missing some days. I hate it when I have to do that.

This weekend I was really busy. Last year we started a trend with salukis and their people visiting us. They came again this year, last weekend, and though it's a lot of work it was also tons of fun.

We took the dogs lure coursing in a friend's field. Actually, the same friend who owns Prince. So, while the dogs were chasing the lure some of us were driving around the perimeter with Prince. Everyone had a blast!

And… my brother has a new puppy! They brought 4 puppies with them, which I didn't know about until they got here. My brother now has a saluki puppy. I'm going to have a lot to do with raising him and he'll get to run with Melian. He's so cute!

I'm posting a photo of him on Eddie's and Melian's page. His name is Longshanks. Don't blame me! I didn't name him.

Eddie's knee is slowly improving and looking better. Still a way to go yet. That was quite some gash. I hope to drive him later this week. He's missed a few days because I haven't been feeling well and have been so busy. I have a vet, er I mean doctor's, visit tomorrow. Still fighting infection after several weeks and I don't have time for it!

Again, thank you so much for your support and friendship. I hope you've enjoyed learning about Percherons and driving.

Leaving a vote of appreciation.

I'm on the mend, thanks!

Thank you to all who voted for my 2 Dover entries. For those having trouble getting the links to work, are you remembering to remove the spaces?

If that doesn't work, please go to the following link and search for Pippin. His will be the only entry that comes up.

http://www.doversaddlery.com/PhotoContestGallery. aspx

Then do a search for Eddie. 1st entry that comes up, a head shot.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Today's Percheron topic is feet! Yes, we all have them! However Percherons are endowed with extra big feet. Yet, they are not clumsy!

I do have to admit though that at the end of a long drive or walk, Eddie's feet seem to be extra heavy and he literally drags them across the ground. Usually at that point though his nose is almost dragging across the ground too. I usually exclaim, "Wake up!" And Eddie looks up like, "Where am I?"

It's a good idea to wear steel toed boots around these big feet. Sometimes they don't know where you are in relation to those big stompers and if one lands on your toes you can say goodbye.

The hoof wall on a draught is considerably thicker than on a "normal" horse. And when one considers that the wall is also the hardest part of the hoof, it makes sense that it is much harder to trim these giants.

It takes me no time at all to trim Pippin's hooves in comparison to Eddie's. Fortunately, Eddie is very patient and allows me the time needed to get it right.

I'm a big proponent of barefoot horses but I know that shoes can be necessary. When a 2000lb horse like Eddie does fairly regular work, especially on the paved road, then shoes are a must.

With one drive Eddie can wear 3/4 inch off his feet. That's a month of growth! (Yes, I know this from experience with a tardy farrier.) Even the shoes have to have a hard surface added to the steel to stop them from wearing down too quickly.

I could keep going on about feet but I think you get the gist! Oh, and one added bonus, the dogs LOVE the hoof trimmings! And Eddie's are extra big! :)

Well, since yesterday's blog was about horses being vocal, I thought I'd pick this video for today. Pippin Sings for His Supper

Thank you all so much for your support this month. I can hardly believe it's almost over! Leaving you a vote.
