I had a really nice weekend. I took Whiskey & Rocket to Mccown Valley Lake Whitney. My friend Bill rode Rocket. The mornings have been nice and cool. What a relief but the warmer temps are returning this week. Cliff picked up our grandson Saturday morning and he spent the night. His parents picked him up at 2 p.m., and then I spent the afternoon with the horses. I actually had to put on their fly masks again. The gnats are terrible. I will be off work until Saturday so I will phone vote. Hard to type much from the phone & I still do not know how to copy/paste with it after all this time~ha ha!!!

Hi again!
Hey, I saw ur post. Well all I can tell u in that case is when u really love someone just let it shine through every second and let everyone see! True love has a way of working out it's problems with fate for the better! If you and Possum have something true, things will work out and nothing will come between u as long as you believe in you pony and trust that it will!

Thx for visiting! (Taco)
Hi! Thx for visiting Taco's page and commenting on his story! I honestly almost lost Taco. He was a lease as I said and was to be sent back eventually. I had to prove to my parents that I was dead serious about this 'horse thing' and that I truly loved my pony.

I did things like get up at 5:30 AM EVERY day (weekends included) and was waiting on the front lawn to be picked up by the barn manager (of the stables where I kept Taco at the time) at 5:45 at age 10 to go muck stalls when it was 20 below ZERO! Doing things like saving up ALL my money to buy Taco a massage were some things I did that proved I loved him. Taco also did things that helped and made my parents realize he loved me too. He had a left lead (canter) issue and NO ONE could get him to take it no matter what...except me! He'd take it for me and only me.

I wasn't made aware of this conversation untill after I got him for Christmas but apperently, after my horsey neighbor watched us (knowing about his lead problem) sweep a walk, trot, canter division at a show and win Grand Champion she told my mom, "You know you're gonna have to buy that pony for her right?", and for the first time my mom responded, "Now I do." Just do stuff like that and people will see what you have with Possum and you'd be surprised what people do when they see a real relationship between a human and a horse. Read my other horse, Cruise's story knowing that he was gifted to me when his owner saw what we had and you will believe me.

Info on the beautiful Peruvian Paso Horse
*Please read its very interesting sorry its so long

In recent years, the world's horsemen have begun to rediscover the pleasures of naturally gaited horses; and horse fanciers from many nations are turning to the Peruvian Paso horse as the ideal mount for the twentieth century horsemen. Thanks to its unique, inbom, four-beat lateral gait, the Peruvian horse is the smoothest riding horses in the world. He is also one of the showiest of all horses because of an inner pride and energy that make him travel with a style and carriage as if always "on parade". The temperament of the Peruvian horse is one of the world's best, thanks to a long standing Peruvian practice of not breeding animals that have an unsuitable disposition. In addition, the Peruvian is the only horse in the world with "termino" , which is a graceful, flowing movement in which the forelegs are rolled towards the outside as the horse strides forward, much like the arm motion of a swimmer. "Termino" is a spectacular and beautiful natural action. Hi am Twilight and i hope enjoyed reading this.I am running for March HOTM and i need some votes and i was wondering if yall could help.
If you are new to HC you can come by and ask me any questions that you want answered i will try to help you as much as possible i will be on here.well heres a vote for you have a horse-tastic day!

Here is a HAPPY NEW YEAR vote from Cowboy & Trigger. 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 ♥

Pray for Andrea and Sweet Pea's family Profile #192859. They lost their Granddad.

LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/ Word of the day: Flies - The excuse of choice a horse uses so he can kick you, buck you off or knock you over - he cannot be punished.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: Q: What kind of bird can write?
A: A PENguin.

Cowboy has a CatChannel page, has anyone noticed CatChannel has taken the same format as DogChannel. I have spent quite some time on DogChannel to learn my way around in case HorseChannel does the same. It is not very hard to vote and blog there. In case HC takes on the same format, please take some time to play around and see what you can learn. I would really hate to lose my friends here because of change. You guys are some of the best friends ever ♥

PLEASE vote! Today's HOTD nominee is:
★ Shelkh 170228 ★

LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/ Word of the day: Feed - Expensive substance utilized in the manufacture of large quantities of manure.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: "Why does rain drop, but snow fall?” (anonymous)

Good Morning! How has your week been? I am back on normal schedule until New Years. Along with cold temps, much needed rains have finally returned to North Carolina. We had quite a few days of rain and are expecting more throughout the upcoming week. We need some snow at our house this year! I know some areas are covered with snow! If snow is at your house, please be careful as you go about your daily activities. Today is a sunny day, but I was hoping to get some much needed horsey time. I have soo much to do today, I don't know what will happen. Fancy needs more of my attention than running out with a treat throughout the day.

PLEASE vote! Today's HOTD nominee is:
★ Painted Possum 230056 ★

Have a Blessed & Safe Friday ✞
