How are you doing? I am going to write a pure copy and paste message because I am so far behind with my HC blogs that you wouldn't believe it.

A lot has happened since I last blogged properly on here and I can't promise to be on as much as I would like.

Eddie has settled in really well. He and Pippin are great friends but boys will be boys and because of their giant size difference, 2000lbs vs 200lbs, they cannot be alone in the same field. So, Eddie has a pen within Pippin's huge day pen and they get at each other through the fence.

Eddie is the tall silent type and his previous owner has never heard him make a noise. Well, now that he's here he whinnies if we take Pippin for a walk and leave him behind. He nickers low and sweetly when Pippin is put in the pen near him. They are cute together.

We've had a couple of tough moments, health-wise, with both of them. Eddie had several episodes of choke earlier this year leading up to a major case which almost killed him. The vet actually thought he wouldn't make it and we were discussing the dreaded topic of carcass disposal…

Well, the long and short of it is, he's completely and absolutely healthy and looks the best he's ever looked. He's fit and shiny and has a spring in his step. That is, when he's not sleep walking which he'll do on a hot day like today.

3 weeks ago Pippin had surgery for the removal of 2 large enteroliths from his colon. They weigh about 3lbs and I've kept them as souvenirs. He's on the road to recovery and is also doing super well.

For a couple of months he was rapidly going downhill and we couldn't figure out what was wrong with him. Using a portable x-ray the vet discovered the stones. They are so huge that she actually screamed when spotted them on the radiograph. It's a wonder that he was still eating and pooping fine. Not sure how that was even possible.

Anyway, that's what's up here. I will try (really I will!) to write more often.

Leaving a vote for you. Have a great weekend!

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

Feels like winter is back in Ontario. We left chilly, windy votes for all.
The next stage of Sterl May story could go on and on, I'm just going to give you the highlights. Even tho we live in the country, we had no place to keep her, so I gathered my thoughts and started to look for somewhere she could call home. I did have some criteria, like it needed to be safe, preferably with some kind of companion, Sterl has never been alone, it needed to be close enough that I could get there daily to feed etc. my work day starts early and I did not want to be driving all over the country side before work every day. I put the word out every where, I asked neighbors, I literally started knocking on doors. It was not looking good, until finally someone told me about an old abandoned barn not far from where we lived. There was an old shack of a house on the property that was rented to a young man that farmed with his family, he kept the house as a place to get away from work and be alone. But the barn and pasture had been let go for about 15 years. I took a look at it and at first rejected the whole idea, way too much work involved. But after David and one of my brothers hacked their way through the overgrowth around the barn door, they said "this could work". I used my imagination, the barn had water and electric, it had a pasture. about 5 acres, it needed fencing, but I saw in my mind a safe peaceful home for my girl. I located the owners, I told them my story. It was like it was meant to be. These people owned this property and had planned that one day when they retire, they would build on this land, they where huge animal lovers and where touched by my dedication to Sterl May. They said "if you think that place will work for you, you are welcome to it" the only restriction was, if something goes wrong we don't want to hear about it, I was responsible for the clean up and fencing, and I had to get along with Robert, the tenant in the little house. WOO HOO, Sterl was getting a home, roll up my sleeves and get to work, TO BE CONTINUED, LOVE DONNA LEE & STERLY GIRLY

History on the Gorgeous Akhal-Teke
*please read very interesting sorry its long

The Akhal-Teke evolved about three thousand years ago in southern Turkmenistan where they are the national emblem. They are named after the nomadic tribe that bred them and are found mostly in Turkmenistan and Russia. These beautiful horses adapt to severe, climatic conditions and remain to be one of the oldest and purest breed of horse still living today. They are thought to be the predecessors of the Arabian and English thoroughbred breeds. Due to their endless stamina and the ability to withstand great extremes of temperature they were originally bred as war mounts and later for racing. Today the Akhal-Teke is used in all competitive equine sports including endurance, dressage, jumping, and eventing. The blood of the Akhal-Teke horse carries an ancient Oriental legacy laced with the endurance born of centuries of survival in the unforgiving Turkmenian deserts.Hi i am Twilight i am running for HOTM and i need some votes but if you are new to the HC or you need help with something come and ask me i will help you as much as i can.Thank you for reading and heres a vote for you have a great day!

I had a great day today, we reached a high of almost 30 degrees! I took advantage of the nice weather and rode Misty, Dakota and Scout. Misty had been running around a bunch before I caught her so she was wore down a bit once I rode her which was nice. Today instead of lunging Sierra I ponied her off of Misty. She did very good and for the first time she loped without bucking or trying to get away. I took Dakota for a nice long gallop, boy can that little guy go! Once I was done riding Dakota Ethan wanted to ride too so I saddled Scout and we took them for a ride down the road. The horses must enjoy the warmer weather because they all behaved so good today. I dont really like the new HC but I guess I will get used to it eventually. I hope that none of you will stop coming on because of the change.

I had a fun ride on Misty today. It has warmed up a bit(20 degrees!) but along with the warmer temps come the snow, we got about another inch this morning. Sierra did great today for lungeing, backing, flexing etc. Dakota and Scout have just been taking it easy, I will probably ride them tommorow. There are a bunch of new videos on the video page, Misty's is on the second page, please watch it if you get a chance. I will try to get a video up of Dakota and Scout soon.

I'm so glad its finally Saturday! I did some work with Sierra this morning and she behaved perfectly( I never thought I would be able to say that about her, she is sooo wild sometimes!) I didn't lunge her very much because the rain has made everything all sloppy and I didn't want her slipping. A long time ago I lunged her when it was muddy out and when I asked her to reverse her legs slid out from under her and she fell hard on her side so now I take it more easy on her when its muddy. She is doing great with her flexing, sometimes she will flex on her own as soon as she sees me sliding my hand down the rope. Later I took her out and led her around the yard for a bit. Someone had a truck parked in the driveway and all of a sudden whoever it was got in and revved up the engine and I thought oh great, now she's going to go nuts but she hardly noticed it. She gets so nutty about some things and then so laid back about others, she always keeps me guessing!
Have a great weekend!

Please visit Cowboy & Trigger at HC page #227894 and leave a daily vote during the month of December! Thanks for your support of Cowboy & Trigger's Jan HOTM campaign ♥

Last night Cowboy informed me that Thursday is National Day of the Horse and he kindly requested a special photo edit. I have been so busy I did not realize that. I am glad to see he takes an interest in celebrating the joy of horses and I thank my small Cowboy for keeping me up to date ♥


LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/ Word of the day: Bog Spavin - The feeling of panic when riding through marshy area. Also used to refer to horses who throw a fit at having to go through water puddles.

Hi all, I’ve been really busy lately. Finished my ballet semester with a Nutcracker performance- it’s been 10 years of ballet now! I did the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Snowflake Waltz. Koko is doing really well, her feet look great and she is moving so well now. Song’s baby is due in September of next year!! So excited!! I’m ready for the holidays too, anyone have ideas for a Secret Santa present for a girl? Our morning meeting does one every year- budget $5 or homemade. (I’m thinking cookies at this point) Hopefully Eileen will be up this weekend for another lesson!

Do you take regular lessons through the winter, or do you scale off?
