I am from Colorado Springs, CO and I've been a Club Horse member for 2 years, 10 months and 18 days

Nicknames: Sometimes just call him D, also Sexy D, little big man, my baby, and stud-muffin

Age: 6 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Appaloosa Horse

Height: 15.1hh

Color: Digit went from a black skin and bones baby, to a brown with spots growing boy, and now he is almost completey white with spots... crazy color changes!! He still goes mostly white in the winter and gets brownish again in the summer

Type of Riding: Lots of trail riding and learning barrels. Still haven't figured out his potential yet but he's grown into a big, strong, fast boy

Horse Illustrated March 2014 issue page 6
HOTD Feb 13 2014

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Anything apple flavored and carrots, beet pulp, grain... pretty much any food

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: get treats, meet other horses, and sniff every pile of poop he can find! He has to bite everything too.... like a toddler, has to put everything in his mouth.... he thinks he is a stud so chasing the girls is now added to this list

Pet Peeves: Curry Combs, he is sensitive to them

My Horse's motto: Kisses or Treats... no one gets in free!!

How We Met

THANKS TO PAULA AND HERD FOR 1000!!!
THANKS TO CISCO AND HERD FOR #1500!!
THANKS TO SHERRY & HERD FOR VOTE 2000!

He was horribly emaciated when I adopted him (right off the rescue trailer).. small, skin and bones and I worried that he wasn't going to make it when I adopted him, but I loved him and knew he would be beautiful some day. He's been through a lot since then.... cryptorchid (2 surgeries), barbed wire gashes, hoof trouble, skin trouble.... but he is tough and comes through it all strong. I am shocked at how his hair pattern has (and keeps) changing.... he changes with the seasons now. Digit had his 2nd crypt orchid surgery in April 2014 and is now the perfect partner - no more crazy stallion behavior!! YAY

♥ I am off work this weekend. We pick up Whiskey today at 2pm. 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 get rode. I will phone vote everyone Sunday though so please vote each day and silent votes are so welcomed as well! Have a wonderful weekend <)__~

Still battling this cold. The worst of it is over. I didn't ride. It was late when Stephanie made it over. Almost dark. When Stephanie rode Sadie, I went inside, because I was too much of a distraction. Sadie behaves much better when she doesn't have an audience. She concentrates on what she's suppose to be doing. As soon I walked outside, she tried to come to me. Stephanie said she's a momma's girl. I say she's spoiled. Lol. Have a blessed weekend. Love hugs and a vote.

☆ 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!

Here's a vote from Buddy! I know I haven't been on again in a few days, but I went and brought Buddy home! We went to get him on Tuesday, and ended up quite a few hours behind schedule.. 8 hours behind actually. The roads were good when we left, and terrible on our way back. We were lucky we left Amberlea when we did, otherwise we would have been camping out at a rest stop somewhere. The only terribly bad part was when we were about 100 KM away from our destination. We had a semi truck driver flag us down to let us know that the road was pure ice, no matter how slow you went you were sliding towards the ditch. We stopped at the bottom of the little hill to see if the trucks in the ditch were okay and we were sliding towards them so they were telling us to just keep going and then call 911 when we got to cell service.

In addition to the roads being crap, I lost my engagment ring somewhere along the way! :( But, Buddy is here, and I am happy for that. He seems to be settled in at the new place and liking it. He's in one of the little barns with one other horse, so I've decided to keep him on indoor board.

My Scentsy business has started off to a good start, I've just got to keep at it and find some more customers other then my sister, and myself! So if any of you, or someone you know are in Canada and would like to order I'd be happy to help! :D In other news, Rob goes for an interview on Tuesday in Calgary, so he's flying there. Which means I get to spend the day with my sister and niece and some friends until he flies back and I pick him up!

The weather here has been pretty mild and I think it's supposed to stay that way for the remainder of the month. I hope it's been nice for everyone else as well! I've added pictures of Buddy in his new place as well!

-Buddy & Jasmine

(}—{) 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…..

Thank you for the get well wishes. I never get sick, but when I do, blech. Lol. Hoping everyone who's under the weather, is feeling better, soon, too...... I did manager a short ride on Sadie, Wednesday. What an amazing feeling to be in the saddle! I forgot about being sick. A friend, who's an experienced rider, came out and rode her, too. I said professional rider, on facebook, because if you have a horse, everyone wants to bring their kids out to ride. Sadie needs work. Not risking accidents.... Stephanie rode Sadie out front. She was amazing. She trotted, cantered and was so good, until she got spooked. She was nervy, possibly coyotes. There's a large den nearby. She bucked hard, and Stephanie hit the ground. She said she was fine, got back on and rode her for a few minutes more. She said she and Sadie need to get to know one another. I'm thinking that's true. Sadie's good with me, but she loves me. She'd better. Lol. Leaving love and a vote.

♡ 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 :)

Hi Digit, here's a vote for ya. Well for as nice as it was yesterday, it was twice as nasty today. Sleet and freezing rain. Yak-Trax to the barn! Slip sliding away! Needless to say, didn't darn try to walk a horse to the indoor, really need to build that covered walk way, I'm so spoiled! LOL! So spent the day doing a complete spa day, complete with horse show clips for them. Had the heater on, was nice about 52 degrees warm air and we all loved it! LOL! Temperature is supposed to rise over night, so hopefully no ice in the morning and I'll get the manure wagon out them. Wouldn't dare try it tonight, figured I slip, hit my face on the wheel barrel and bust my teeth! It's that bad! Have I said this lately, I hate winter! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

♥ The first 2 years I had Deacon I kept him at a barn 18 miles from me and I didn’t have a trailer at first. So my friends would haul me around to ride. We bought a 2 horse trailer a year later and soon after we bought a 3 horse gooseneck stock trailer. I use to bring a tent and my horse in my 2 horse trailer to camp out! Lol What fun I had and what a wonderful horsey journey I have been on every sense the day I laid eyes on (NEW NICKNAME) Mr. Eyeliner!!! Cliff always says he has eyeliner around his eyes and Allie’s mom started putting “Mr.” in front of it and I think that is so cute! I won’t be around a computer the weekend…I will try and phone vote some. Please continue to support my Deacon! Thank you so much!

Hi Digit, here's a vote for ya. Oh I bet you get you're fair share of cold snowy weather out there in CO. One of the ski capitals of the USA. Well woke up to sunshine and it got up to about 41 degrees, sure was nice. Been playing with backing up things on flash drives cause this desk top is about to give up the ghost. Then later in the day trying hard to get used to the lap top and windows 8.1. Got a really nice ride in on Paige today. Then free lunged Indy, who whenever I turned my back to him, came over and tried to pull my head band off, I think his ears night have been cold and he wanted my head warmer! LOL! Bullseye got some pasture time, little stinker found a muddy spot and had a ball! I looked at him and said, you put it there, you take it off! He must have, cause 45 minutes later when I went to bring him in, he was clean. Probably went in rolled in the little bit of grass that's there! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

♡ 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.

Here's a vote from Buddy! Boy oh boy has quite a bit of stuff happened since I was last on to blog, and it hasn't even been that long! First off, the move to Grande Cache went well, we got here on Monday the 1st. BUT, I actually haven't moved Buddy yet. The day that we had picked out to move him was looking all good weather wise, and then that winter storm hit in Canada. The weather got terrible, and of course the roads we had to take to bring him to GC were just the worst. So, that being said, he is still at Amberlea until the middle of this month when Rob gets his days off and we go get him! I miss him already and it's only been two days.

I've started a new business adventure for myself. I am now a Independent Scentsy Consultant in Canada! Wahoo! I'm super excited because I've researched it for a while, and I love love love Scentsy stuff! Rob started his new job today and is already thinking of looking for a different one. Not because he doesn't like it, but because he essentially will make the same anount that I made at the barn each month, which isn't enough to live off of.

In addition to everything else that's been going on, I finally have home internet set up again so I finally should be able to get on and blog everyday, if not, every few days! I'm hoping everyone is staying warm!

Hi Digit, here's a vote for ya. Nice to hear from ya stranger. Other than on FB of course! LOL! Well it warmed up over night so the ice we had last night at feeding time walking to the barn was melted, thank goodness. Got the kids to the indoor for a little playtime only. I kinda had the chills all morning and afternoon, just couldn't get warm enough, the thought ran across my mind of sitting on the wood burner to warm up! LOL! Just call me hot buns! LOL! Anyhow, feel better now, a little nap and I was good to go. So hopefully will either ride or at least lunge Paige and do showmanship with her. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
