Paint Horse from Deerfield, OH

SASSY

About Me

Active within 21 Days

I am from Deerfield, OH and I've been a Club Horse member for 2 years, 5 months and 15 days

Nicknames: Sassafras In The Rain, Sassy Rain, Sass, Bad A$$ Sass

Age: 8 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Paint Horse

Height: 14 hands

Color: Chestnut Tobiano

Type of Riding: Because she is blind training takes much longer. She is broke now and we do go on trail rides together, but mostly we work on training.

My Horse's Achievements: Well basically the small things mean the most with her because she can't see anything, so everything from her trust for me to me being able to ride her! She might not be a champian show horse but she is perfect to me!

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Apples and Peppermint treats!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Sassy's favorite thing to do is eat!

Pet Peeves: She hates when you come in the barn and dont say hi to her first! Also when you put her treats in the bucket and then the grain...she digs them out and throws her grain everywhere. She is such a brat! lol

My Horse's motto: Just keep on trotting!

How We Met

I noticed an elderly man down the road was having trouble caring for his blind 3 yr old mare, Sassy, so I asked him if i could help. He said 'yes'. After a couple months he asked if I would be interested in keeping Sassy. I, of course, said yes and ran down the road to start cleaning the barn up for the new addition to my family! I have had many horses over the years but never a special needs horse so some adjustments had to be made. But she fit right in and, of course, she has been spoiled ever since!

THANK YOU FOR ALL THE VOTES EVERYONE!!!

Update May '12:
Miss Sassy Rain and I have had some trouble lately while training. She would refuse her bit, panic when we finally got the bridle on her so I gave up thinking she had an absessed tooth or her teeth needed floated or maybe she had grain or grass lodged somewhere in her mouth making things unconfortable so we had our vet come out and check out her dental situation. Turns out she is 'healthy as a horse', but this didnt answer my question why all of a sudden would she throw her bit. She never did before!? After talking to a trainer and the vet they both said the same thing maybe she just doesnt like it. Great I thought...as if I didnt have enough trouble with a blind horse all I need is for her to get picky! But then I realized that that 'I' wasn't the one with a huge hunk of metal in MY mouth(on top of not being able to see). And maybe Sassy was scared of the bit all along and decided she wasn't having it. So I ordered a Dr. Cook's bitless bridle and we are going to try that out! =] If anyone has tried one please let me know how it went! Happy Riding!!!

Update June '12:
The Bitless bridle is amazing and Sassy is responding really well. She is doing much better with her exercises and groundwork. I am more than happy with her bridle and it has helped so much!

-Sassy and Steph

Voted. I read my blogs, looks like most of us are really enjoying our equine pals this spring! Great blogs! And now we have a whole new weekend to enjoy more adventures, have fun :)

Trigger had a bath Wednesday evening, then he spent the night stalled. Trigger had his vet visit today. He loaded up nicely the first time, but he backed out before I got the butt bar up. The second time he stayed in there. Fancy ran around screaming bloody murder. I like to take them places without the other one so they can know that it is ok to be separated. They do not agree with that. LOL. When we returned, Fancy was filthy with sweat and dirt, from all of her running and screaming. When I turned Trigger loose, Fancy scolded him roughly for leaving her. After that, Fancy was nice to Trigger. I cannot believe how silly Fancy can be.

We really had a bad storm this evening. I was filling Fancy’s water tub when the storm began. The wind was exceptionally high and Fancy was playing in the water. I just put a tarp over Bandit’s (my Siberian Husky) kennel on his birthday, May 31, Well, the wind lifted that kennel and tossed it sideways into our chain link fence on that side of our yard. Bandit was a bit terrified, he ran into his dog house and stayed there until Cowboy and I got his kennel back in place. Then I took that tarp off. The wind did blow harder, and I was thankful the kennel stayed on the ground for the remainder of the storm. As we worked on the kennel, Fancy ran crazy then went to eat hay. I guess all the running wild and crazy did work up an appetite. Trigger did not seem to really care that the wind was up. He did join Fancy munching hay in the rain though.

It was amazing to see huge trees swaying wildly, almost touching the ground. It was beautiful and frightful at the same time. I hardly ever see this because I am usually in the house when the storms come up. I was glad when the storm was over and things were peaceful again.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: All I Need to Know in Life I Learned From My Horse: ‘Everyone loves a good, wet, slobbery kiss.’

LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/ Phrase of the day: RECENTLY VETTED: someone else found something really wrong with this horse.


Have a peaceful and safe night ✞

Fancy is leaving this Good night vote :)
Because my oldest son is now on his return trip to Afghanistan, it was real sweet to see Cowboy smile when I showed him his HOTD yesterday. Again, THANKS! Oh, I finally got photos from his visit added to Fancy’s page.
It has certainly been a lovely Carolina day! After church we ate and headed out for the day. I took care of Fancy & Trigger. Since Fancy can not go out I went for a bike ride. Fancy became very upset as she watched us leave. I was afraid she was going to hurt herself trying to get out. She remembers our walks! That made me feel bad to leave her. Since we have more daylight now, Fancy will have her walks soon. We don’t have to ride. I love taking walks with her. But there is no way I can handle Fancy and my bike at the same time.

I look forward to reading about your weekend. Do you have any fresh new horsey plans since the days are longer and the sun is shining stronger?

Here is a wintery vote for you! It is getting cold in NC!
A few months ago I began a part time job. Well, that is more like full time now. As you have noticed my irregularity on HC, I am pressed for time and energy. Lately, I have fallen asleep at the computer and I don't know how I have not fallen out of this chair. LOL! When I am mentally and physically able, I will leave a vote for each of your profile pages. There may be several times that I will only vote for one page. If you have a preference as to which page I leave the main vote on, please let me know and I will try to do that for you.

Trying to do many things is wearing me down. There have been so many things that have crossed my mind that I wanted to mention or ask you about, but by the time I get to my blog, I can not remember those things. I am going to try and write things down before I forget them.

Fancy's latest video posted yesterday on HC. Hope you can view it!

Did you partake in any horse event during this first few days of 2013? It has been a bit muddy in our yard, so we have not :(

I enjoyed the rains, and the quiet times that came with it. The days might be a little cool to me, but we are finally expecting to see dry, sunny days again! The weekend is even expecting to warm up in the low 50's! That means we will have a chance of riding ☀

COWBOY & TRIGGER, the Young Prince & King of January: I called Cowboy into the room and told him to read the computer screen. He read it and he said smiled. I asked him if he knew what it meant. He said Trigger won HOTD. I told him no, read it again. He asked me what is HOTM. I explained to him that means Horse Of the Month. He was very excited as he told me in his own 11 year old words that HOTM was a great surprise in addition to his birthday being Monday! Trigger was his usual calm ole self, just mellow and go lucky, and trying to get along with miss Bossy Pants, Fancy. Cowboy and Trigger send thanks for voting them Jan HOTM. I could not figure out who left their landmark votes. Any way we thank each of you for every vote!

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.

What a glorious time of year! Sorry we have been so busy. Now I can tell you about our Christmas holiday. It was filled with Christmas play practice, eating, shopping, & cooking. The usual things :) The only fun horsey time we have enjoyed has been running out the back door to feed them quick snacks through each day. That has really helped Trigger to stop running away from me. LOL. This was my first Christmas attending our candle light service. I enjoyed that and plan to make it part of my future Christmas traditions. Christmas dinner was the best ever! My sister helped my mom cook! I helped do little things like prep and put stuff in place, etc. Christmas night, we drove to a nearby town to see the light show. They have made several improvements and it was the best light show yet.
We look forward to reading about your 2012 Christmas. As we visit your pages, we enjoy all the Christmas photos and holiday avatars. I hope you enjoyed some horsey time somewhere along the way.
It is really raining heavy here!!! Stay safe and enjoy the remainder of the Christmas holiday ♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Let There Be Peace:
Please keep the Sandy Hook Elementary School community in Newtown, Connecticut in prayer. Also pray for the safety of all children, for evil does not respect boundaries.

Matthew 2:16-18
16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men.
17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:
18 "A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more."

Q: What happens if you eat the Christmas Decorations?
A: you get tinsel-itus!

COWBOY & TRIGGER: A TALE OF TWO:
March 2011 be brought Trigger to our house for the weekend. Little Cowboy enjoyed having Trigger home, so we never took Trigger back to the farm to live. During the winter months, Cowboy took care of Trigger while Trigger learned that Cowboy was his boy, and Cowboy began learning to ride Trigger. (you know, the way he likes to be handled and not handled. We are still working on that one.) Things were looking GOOD for Cowboy and Trigger!

i posted a pic taken at dusk tonight of godiva being ridden by my 11 yr old rider paige. she asked if she could ride godiva in her lesson. they did a nice job of the circle exercise over poles and then cantering. godiva tries to duck her head and usually unseats paige but tonight paige kept her head up. so cute! too bad i only had my cell phone so it's kinda hard to see. also, got an email from a former rider. she used to ride with me 10 yrs ago as a teen. she's in chicago doing graphic arts but coming home for a visit in january and wants to come hang out! this is the best, as an instructor. such a good feeling to know you've made good memories for someone. :)

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are having a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving. I hope you're enjoying lots of good food with your family and friends. We have much for which to be thankful. And we just ate our BIG meal and are stuffed!

I am lucky to have such great friends as you who love me even though I'm so bad about getting online and writing. I miss you and just wish I had more time to write. Sigh! Such is life…

I treasure your friendship and even though I'm not always around I think of you often. Thank you for being there for me!

I'm also very grateful to have another horse living with us now. Eddie's been here for 2 months now but he's so settled in it seems like we've had him forever. He and Pippin are great friends but with their size difference and their perky personalities I don't trust them to be alone together. So, Eddie has a smaller fenced in section of Pippin's big day pen and they spend lots of time right against each other with the fence in between. And yes, Pippin is boss!

We walk them together with the dogs and they drive their own carts. Eddie takes 2 steps while Pippin takes 20. They are adorable! And we keep stopping traffic! hehe

Happy Thanksgiving! And here's a vote on this special day.

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