The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. The picture today was taken 8/2012. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. We haven’t camped out in nearly 2 years, and that is when I can try to swim with the horses. It’s too hard to try swimming when I day ride because of the drive home (driving wet is no fun) -ha ha =) Deacon is my true water baby-he will actually swim with me and never try to lie down. I have also found that Whiskey hates for any type bug to fly in his face-so needless to say while we ride in the open if there are grass hoppers or butter flies, regular fly’s he tosses his head slightly. It doesn’t bother me now but it used to. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

whiskey is sending hugs & love
Monday we left off about Whiskey’s color and me with 5 hundred questions for Karla! Here we go…That poor girl had never met me before and I could not shut up :) I then walked over and looked Whiskey right in the eye and he looked back into mine and my heart sunk. His beauty was striking and the color was outstanding. He had a smart, sharpness about him-I’m sure he was thinking “what in the world is she doing”. The ride finally got underway; usually everyone has me ride out front and calls me the trail boss! Deacon is a faster walking horse but can ride in the middle or behind after the first hour or so. Well, here comes Rio & Whiskey with their smooth selves!!! They just gaited their smooth self’s right past me & Deacy. I watched Whiskey and noticed he didn’t quite move the same as Rio but still a difference from a QH. 2 hours into the ride we decided to rest a few minutes in a place we call “Carol’s lounge”. We have names for all our spots we ride to rest or to take a break out there because it’s so big. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Whiskey would love your support for his HOTM run
Now were into “Whiskey’s” story really good! I finished getting Deacon ready for our all day ride. We always pack drinks and hotlinks or some sort of sausage/lunch meat for lunch. Bill got a call that they were pulling in and asked us to wait a few minutes before heading out. I guess we had about 8 riders starting out then Karla & Tim made 10-oh what fun! They pulled in and parked and they started to unload the horses and of course I was already curious. Out came this Smokey chocolate colored horse, smaller built and my jaw dropped open in awe….Her horse Rio changes colors as all Rocky’s do throughout the year so he had almost a buckskin color but he is what they call a chocolate color. Then out comes Tim & Whiskey~~~~OMG I thought I would faint…..I was speechless….I had never seen a horse look like that nor that color…I went over to Karla and started all the questions and she explained that Whiskey’s color is called “Red Chocolate”. To be continued Wednesday, phone votes tomorrow =) Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Congratulation’s Queen Paige “Nuttin But Good” our April HOTM! Here we go with our campaign with Whiskey 237221 to be May 2014 HOTM! I need everyone’s support so vote on his page daily please!!! Every other weekend I am not around a computer so I will phone vote as many as possible, also 1 x a week that I will phone vote :) I will start my story with why I have and will ONLY have such well trained and gentle geldings, then I will start how Whiskey & I became each other’s very best friends along with some Rocky Mountain facts about the breed ♡ * Rocky Mountain Horses are slow to mature and do not reach their full size and weight until about five to six years of age. Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hello,
It has been a pretty long time since I was on here last. Things have really changed since my last posting. I am loving living in Traverse City. I have a part time job, that I am hoping will go full time with the weather getting better. It is in a large riding/boarding farm, and I love it!
The 2 horses that I was thinking about didn’t end up working out. However, I think I have found one that is a perfect match for what I need. Hopefully soon I will be making a new profile on here.
Here’s a sunny vote, and have a great day!!!

It has been a pretty long time since I have been on here. I am doing a lot better now. Still teaching and training. I graduated from college in December, and I am now a certified Veterinary Assistant. I have a couple of horses that I am keeping my eye on with the hopes of maybe getting a horse in the spring. There is also a chance that I maybe moving back to lower Michigan. Which would be nice, as the place has a small barn with stalls already in it. Hope you are having a great weekend!!!

♡ Well hello from a real computer keyboard! Deacon & I rode Lake Whitney yesterday and I have to say we had the best time ever. We rode about 4 hours. He is such a good boy, and so smooth to ride. I got sprinkled on lightly a few times but that was ok, we rode on. Nice way to end a vacation, I can hardly explain how beautiful it is out there. :)

For the most part my vacation went well, Cliff had eye laser surgery a week ago Thursday & then Bill came over and we rode on our property and up to the Rodeo grounds there in West, that was great fun too. I rode last Friday evening & then last Saturday morning before the rains hit. Then I was cooped up for 4 days…not fun. Spent Wednesday grooming the boys ~they looked like mud balls~ my escape artist Whiskey pushed open the make shift gate from turnout #3 into turnout #2 and hurt his leg (scraped it pretty deep, and has a place on his back flank area) I got him cleaned up and naturally I have played doctor sense then! . Anyway, we have to really lock up, tie up and whatever else because he can open anything in the world!!! Well, that about sums it up. I missed all my horsey friends and your horses!!!!! ♡

Galloping by with some votes! It has been a bit soggy around here lately. We got our first rainstorm of the season and it brought with it the remnants of a Japanese typhoon!! Yikes! Lots of wind and rain the last few days. I think I might have to invest in some water wings for Katie! LOL She's warm and dry in her stall with her sheet on...I don't usually put blanket on this early, but the weather changed so fast! Today at least the afternoon was sunny and all the horses got to go outside and enjoy it.

Life: One moment a beautiful dream...the next, you watch in disbelief as your heart is torn out.

I just got home from laying to rest Freedom's Skye, better known to her many fans as Skye. My loving horse of 2 1/2 years passed away after a freak accident this morning. It is great comfort to know that she didn't suffer near as long as I will without her.

Skye, I hope you know how much I dearly loved you, as I could have never put it into words that you would understand.

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.

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 Marion & the Blondies for vote 4,000 for Whiskey!!! We ended up with a lot of rain and I'm very thankful for that. It started Thursday evening and rained until late last night. It ended a 56 day run with out it. My horses had happy hoofs, bucking, hopping and running all around with happiness. Temps will be only in the 80’s all week-what a relief.

Been busy. So much to be done. I'm leaving a c/p of my post on Facebook. Don't think I could word it any better.... I called mom earlier. She's back!! It was so wonderful to hear her sweet voice, her talking like she use to and laughing. God is amazing! We talked about why this happened. Her healing is a result of God's unfailing love. This has shown us how losing her, and we almost did, would tear our hearts out and leave us with an unbearable emptiness. Something so many of you know too well. And to value and treasure her each and every day. It's opened our family's eyes to how precious our time is with her and what an empty place this world would be without her. I already knew this, but to feel that fear was beyond words. I told her how much I'd missed being able to call and talked to her, how I'd missed the conversations we've had. And the laughter we've always shared is priceless. Thank you for the love and prayers. Sending love and prayers in return. I love you all. God is so good.... Sending my HC family love, prayer and a vote.

Hi Ziggy! Wow I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last visit to HC! It has been crazy at work and it has been pretty hot this last month so I didn't get much time in with Koot at all :( we were in the mid 90s pretty much every day! Now it's back into the 80s which is soooo nice :) saw Koot on Sunday and let him enjoy some running and playing and then plan to see him tonight.
How is everything with you? Hope all is well! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

HI
Hi All

Wow, has it been busy for me lately, I do hope everyone is doing okay though and enjoying their horsey time.

Well, roughly 3 weeks after my uncle passed away my 88 year old grandpa (PawPaw) suffered a heart attack and had to be rushed to the ER. It was found that one of his arteries had collapsed from stress, but luckily reopened on it's own during surgery. The doctor said that was a pretty rare thing to have happen.
It was also found that he had a very contagious form of Pneumonia on top of the heart attack. He's recovering well and is in rehab for now, but will likely be home soon and is already looking forward to Thanksgiving and a nice turkey dinner :D.

During this time I've also been very busy, between visiting PawPaw and travelling around a bit to LEGOLAND (I needed time to relax and think about things, so I went with my friend and Aunt to LEGOLAND again).
I've also become my friends assistant Sunday School teacher at his church, this is a very new experience for me, I haven't been to church since I was a little kid really.
My friend also had another race or two (he does marathons and other shorter races) that I went to with him. He did really well in his races, especially since he was still running with a sore arm and shoulder.

I'm sorry I haven't been on much lately, but I do check my FaceBook profile almost everyday, so if you're interested you can send me a friend request on there, my profile is private.
I hope you have a wonderful week and lots of horsey love and hugs.

Come visit me, TJ (And friends).

*♡* Whiskey & I had a nice ride Saturday. I hauled out early to Lake Whitney. I took Rocket for Bill to ride. Plans always seem to change. He brought his wife to ride this 4 year old horse of his brothers. When I saw her with him I asked if they were riding double! He said no she was going to ride “LC”. I thought in my head “that isn’t a good idea”. She is terrified of horses and she and Bill thought that horse was clam enough for her…needless to say I had a bad feeling. He has only ridden him out there one time. We all saddled up, Bill walked over to talk to someone who was getting ready and Angie had gone to the restroom. I took Whiskey over to their truck to get ice for my saddle bags & when I came around the truck “LC” went to bucking! He bucked and bucked…they didn’t have him tied I guess, but I watched ice flying along with their drinks! I looked over at Bill walking our way & then I looked toward the restrooms and saw Angie walking that way and I said “guess we know who’s not riding today!" I offered her Whiskey to ride but she was a little shook up at that point. Bill put Rocket in one of the stalls there and I went on out and rode by myself. I don’t know what Bill was thinking but I guess it’s none of my business! Lol

I rode Deacon Sunday there at home. Just checked fence line and walked/trot & canter a little. He is a good boy even after not being ridden in a while. Love that horse! Oh ~ Bill was his trainer so I’m still scratching my head at the decision Bill made Saturday. Oh well, he did take him home and worked him in the round pen then Angie got on him after he was tired out. Glad she did so she didn’t stay scared of him. We also had our grandson Jason Saturday night-as always it was comical!! Quick whinny & a click on your horseshoe!
