How We Met

Funny story actually. I went with my family to buy goats at the farm she was at. I saw her and I was really really hoping they wanted to sell her. Come to find out they were looking to sell her and another one of their drafts. But I fell in love with my Wendy girl :) Bffs ever since!.

How are you doing? Beautiful horse! Thanks for stopping by Pippin's page. I'm glad you like him. Wow, it's been a really long time since I've been able to blog properly! It's just been such a busy schedule lately that I hardly have any computer time to myself.

But, I have had time to take Pippin out almost every day and, of course, Melian comes with me too. Last week I was driving him to the mountain. Melian was attached to the side. We started down the lane and a car stopped behind us. We waited to cross the highway and once on the other side noticed the car following us.

Then we turned up the road to go up the mountain and the car drew up from behind us and stopped a little ahead. A woman jumped out with a camera and started exclaiming about how cute Pippin is. Pippin's expression was all attentive as he LOVES being the centre of attention. He was like, "I know it!"

Anyway, she and her husband asked if they could snap some shots because they had never seen anything so adorable. Of course, I said yes. And then she said hello to Pippin and was as friendly as ever.

In the meantime, beautiful Melian is standing there with a long suffering patience written all over her face. They hardly noticed her and she was thinking, "Let's get this over already! How boring can people be?" However, if she had been the centre of attention she would have been loving every minute of it. When people say she's so beautiful she raises her head a little and prances a few steps. Wow, what vain critters I have!

So, we went on our way. We met a couple of loggers, one of whom thought Pippin was adorable. Melian again ignored. Pippin must have looked particularly cute that day!

So, we turned around at the base of the mountain to gallop back down. Pippin was eager to set off and we raced faster and faster. We passed the logger and he looked in surprise as this teeny tiny horse came galloping by at 25mph.

Eventually I started to slow Pippin as we drew nearer the highway. Melian was running loose at this point and I wanted to hook her back up to the cart. We pulled over, I attached her, and then I clicked for Pippin to move.

Nothing happened. I clicked again. Nope. Hm, what's wrong? I got out and looked at Pippin wonderingly. What?! No bridle? I have never in my life had this happen to me on any horse.

The bridle was around his off fore. It must have come off while I was hooking up Melian. He probable scratched his face on the shafts and it got hooked there somehow. That's the only explanation of which I can think. I'm certainly glad it didn't come off while we were galloping down!

Anyway, never a dull moment with creatures in your lives! Here's a vote for you and I hope you're enjoying spring. Here it's warm and then freezing and then raining and then snowing. Typical spring. Can't make up its mind.

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

Dropping by with mini votes tonight. I was hoping to get some blogging time but it was not to be. I did get Pippin time though and he's doing great.

Well, almost great. Yesterday I drove him about 4 miles. That was fun! But the day before I was jogging with him and he got excited. He put his nose between his legs, did a little twist and broke into a canter. However he must have misjudged something because he had hardly taken two steps when he fell flat on his nose which started to bleed.

Not to worry though, it's just a scratch. I think he was more embarrassed than anything. And he did NOT want me to spray it with Scarlex. He has lightning reflexes. Even though the nozzle was right up against his nose several times not one bit of spray hit its target! I can't move that fast!

Well, I guess I did blog after all! Sorry, it has to be c/p tonight though. I do need to go to bed at some stage. Early morning awaits me!

So, here's your mini vote and have a great week!

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

HI WENDY!! LEFT VOTE #49 FOR A PRETTY GIRL!!!
hi hows the training going? if you blog back (an di hope you do :~) then please do it on sweet pea's page cause i hardly ever check flicka's page. thanks!!

I BELIEVE...when I'm tempted, God provides a way out.

hello all. blustery here today and temps in the high 40s. didn't ride :~( went shopping with Mom, got a bunch of stuff for our homeschool geography fair next saturday. me and my sisters are each doing a board on a country. my sisters are doing it on Paris. i', doing mine on Scotland. I'm going to wear what the ladies do for special occasions: a white shirt, and long plaid skirt, a matching sash and a fancy lacy, layered thing by my neck. I can't wait!! it's going to be sooo much fun!!

i have 30. 000 points finally, but i think i'll save up for the "Myler bit system or something like that..i forget what it's called.....

hope you have a wonderful day!!

With prayers, Andrea and the horses

hi wendy and luck y owner!!!


I BELIEVE...God can do amazing things.

cantering by with a 60 degrees-but-windy-day vote for a friend!!!

i jumped sweet pea today a little, actually over only one jump. the rest of the time was warming her up and trying to get her to settle :~( then i was getting fed up, i had a headache, so i decided to skip jumping for today. i cantered up the road and in the field lane, once i the field lane i let her have her head, then at the end we turned around. she bolted, but i easily stopped her and we walked gently in the rest of the way.

then i worked with flicka. actually, i didn't get out of the corral. i was waiting for a friend to go riding with, so i left Sweet Pea's saddle on and just took her bridle off. My friend Sharon had given me two large rings and a surcingle type of thing, so i was measuring and adjusting that so it fits. then when my friend came, i went for an hour, mostly walking with her!

I NEED ADVICE......WHEN SWEET PEA CANTERS SHE GETS STIFF AND WON'T SOFTEN HER JAW. I HAVE CONTROL, BUT SHE'S ALWAYS TRYING TO GO FASTER AND IT'S REALLY BOUNCY. I'M REALLY FED UP. I'D TAKE HER FOR A LESSON, BUT WE DON'T HAVE A TRAILER AND MY PARENTS WON'T BORROW ONE. ANY ADVICE ON HOW TO GET A SOFT, COLLECTED CANTER W/O TRYING TO CONSTANTLY SPEED UP?!!? thanks SO much for all your help!!

hi wendy hows the training going hope your being a good girl for your luck owner!!

I BELIEVE..my suffering has a purpose. "For we know that all things work together for good unto them that love God, and are called according to His purpose. ' Romans 8:28


I am so happy with Sweet Pea!!! i set up a double jump 20 feet apart yesterday and took her over it. She was supposed to do two strides, but she did one regular and two small strides. Then i walked her around, cooling her off, but my aunt was in from WI and she wanted to take a pic of me, so i jumped it again, and she FLEW over it with exactly the right # of strides, and i remembered to keep my hands front, and it felt amazing!!!! i felt like my face was going to split, i was smiling so wide!!! sweet pea is sooooooo wonderful!!! how was my life before i knew her?! :~) horses are such a wonderful blessing from God...thank him for your horse(s) today!!

went to my cousin's school spring program this afternoon, then to my grandma's house, so i didn't ride at all, anyway the horses both need a break, they were worked pretty hard on Tuessday, both of them.

I NEED ADVICE!--------i jump sweet pea pretty regular, and even though the jumps aren't higher than two feet, i'd feel a lot better if i had some liniment or something to rub on it after i untack...is that necessary? what brand should i get? is there anything i should steer away from using? THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR ADVICE!!

have a wonderful day!! and, as always, I pray for you every night!! God Bless.

hi wendy and owner!! whats your name??
I BELIEVE....God wants me to control my anger.

hello all. had a very nice weekend, went to a friends house all day sunday. didn't work with sweet pea of flicka for quite a while, so i should exercise them today!! wish me luck!

on friday evening we watched "The Miracle of the White Stallions". it was GOOD!!! if you never watched it, your missing out!! the full movie's on YouTube.com. check it out!! its about the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria. the time period is world war 2, and the director of the riding school is trying to evacuate the lippizanners because it's too dangerous for them, but the army won't let them leave. but he does any way. they and their horses spend 10 years in exile before it's safe enough to come back. LOTS of action and their horses are simply gorgeous!!!

Good job! She really seems to stand out very beautifully in the snow, so pretty! What kind of camera do you have? : ) I have a Power Shot S2 IS Canon.

HI! Dropped off a quick vote, thanks for stopping by. Sorry I was offline yesterday, it was my brother's birthday. We just went to dinner at Red Robin. He invited only 2 friends but one had to go home earlier. ~You know what is bugging me right now? That Picnik.com is closing. So there will be a delay in making the HOTM photos on the Calendar Page. I will have to get photoshop from my dad and see if I can find something I like. Do you have any ideas of photo editing websites that I could use, that are free? It would help a lot. Thank you! How are you? Hows your weather? Here in Portland its sunny and cold, but at least the sun helps to warm ya up LOL! I hope your all well.

Hi Wendy!
Thank you for your vote! Arabian racing is a very exciting sport even though it is not near as popular as the thoroughbred races. Yes, I am a handsome boy and I love the camera. You are a very pretty girl yourself!

ummmmm how DID i make her bow?? i almost forget??! ok here' s what i think i did... it might not work with a full grown horse, flicka's only almost 2 and she 's small for her age. i stood by her left shoulder, facing forward, holding her lead rope with me left hand and holding her left foreleg up with my right hand. i pulled down and back on her leg, and down and back on her lead rope until she.. bowed! if thats too confusing let me know :~)
