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

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

Thankfully, just a bit of drizzle this AM, but chilly and of course, damp. Can't believe I'm wearing a jacket in the middle of the day and it's nearly June.

Happy BD to your Mom! Sigh, more rain. Looks like the worst of it will be up around the OK border, so that's good. Just a few brief thunderstorms our way, according the radar. Still 80-100% chance of rain the next 10 days. Usually by this time, we're praying for rain. We are SUCH a muddy mess!

Finally got a day off. Trying to catch up on things at home. I let Sadie out for the first time in over a week. She ran, ran more and loved it. So prissy. In the 70's this week. Shall I dare hope to ride? We'll see. Love always and a vote.

Long afternoon and evening at work. 10 hours with no break. Was busy the whole time. Didn't sit down from the time I got out of the car when I arrived at work, until I got back in to leave. Blessed but tired. Lol. Sadie's doing well. Have a great weekend. Love and a vote.

☆ I want to thank all of you so much for your support of Deacon’s HOTM run! He has over 500 votes so far and we had a late start to boot! I will be off work the next 3 days so I will be phone voting. On the 1st when I wake I will see who top horse is and I am surely hoping it is my Deacy (Mr. Eyeliner) lol I will get a final vote count before I go to bed the 31st and let you know what his final votes were. Love my HC friends to the moon and back again!!! Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

✞ Deacon is such a sweet gentle soul, he loves kids. When a child is around he lowers his head down with VERY soft eyes and it almost seems as if he tries to make his body small ~it is such a sight to see. Some of you will gasp at this but I don’t lunge Deacon before riding, never have. He has always been such a gentleman. I do lunge him sometimes if I don’t have time to ride and it’s just to have time with him. I sure do hope your weather is better than it has been here. The winds have been terrible 20-30 mph and cold! Happy trails to you and here is a whinny and a click on your horseshoe with love =)

Hi all. Christmas was nice. I got money to put toward a hay shed, and Sadie got a ball. It's taking some time for her understand it, but she'll love it when she does. Weather's extra cold here overnight, 28* at 4:30 this morning. Sadie's water trough had a layer of ice at 8am. It's in the 60's during the day. Suppose to be cold through next weekend. I hope not. Love and a vote.

Digit, Lilly says Joy to the world, hope during this Christmas week you find some quiet time to reflect on all the wonderful blessing that you have had this year,we have so much water around that it is like living in a swamp, it's pretty warm today with a slight wind , I guess it is the pineapple express they speak of, might see a little sun today MAYBE, Lilly looks like she has a couple lbs of mud caked on her, gonna have to wear safety goggles when trying to clean her up today. I hate to get dirt and sand in my eye's,last week I just got to busy to get on HC life went crazy and something had to give, LOL Love Suz and Lilly

☆ Deacon and I had a really nice ride at Lake Whitney Saturday. We rode alone. That was the first time in sooo long that I have rode alone& we so enjoyed it. With Christmas upon us this week I know everyone is busy but I would like to ask that you at least leave a silent vote for Deacon if you don’t have time for much other! We thank all of you for this amazing support so far ♡ Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

♥ 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.
Here is a hug & a Wednesday vote :)

☆ 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…..
