How We Met

We needed a new trail horse and found Cowboy's ad. The prior owner is so sad to let him go, but we are happy he is coming to join our horsey family.

Cowboy has arrived at his new home Friday, 4/13/2012. First all the horses are inside the barn to begin getting used to each other.
4/14/2012 - Cowboy was in the Round Pen for preliminary introduction to his new stablemates. Rocky likes him!! Yay
4/17/2012 I rode Cowboy on the trail 1st time. He was out already twice for testing with my daughter riding and was good. :)
4/24/12 Cowboy is turned out with Rocky for the 1st time & they do great together - as in nothing happened.
5/14/12 - 1st away trail ride for Cowboy (with Comet)! Cowboy is a champ!
5/26/12: Cowboy is turnout with the full herd on the pasture. Everything goes well but he's staying close to Rocky when the others approach.
6/10/12: Saratoga Battlefield National Park Trailride
6/23/12: Grafton State Park Ride
8/7/12: 1st solo trail ride on Cowboy
8/4/13 - Cowboy shows in English Open Pleasure and in his 1st show took 3 blues and the show champion for Open Pleasure! Way to go, Cowboy (& rider, my daughter).
Nov 7&8, 2013: Cowboy is ridden at the Equine Affaire in W.Springfield MA by my daughter in two of Julie Goodnight's clinics. The training my daughter has been doing on Cowboy is showing. I am so proud of the team!
Dec 25 2014 - I gave Cowboy to my daughter for Christmas.

HI, left a vote. Zip and I did our homework again today, he was much better today, saw lots of improvement! I also grabbed a bareback pad and put that on him, he didn't care at all even when I cinched it up. Then I lunged him just a bit with it on, he did great! May try a light weight western saddle on him sometime this week. Also feel like I am coming down with another cold!

Come visit me, Toby, Zip N Fire Please vote ZIP for Feb. HOTM! & Amber.

Hi, left a vote. The clinic is gaining respect through groundwork. We did our homework today, big improvements from yesterday and we did some light lunging. So very happy with Zip!

Hi, left a vote. Zip and I had fun at the clinic today! He did great!!! Everyone thought he was super cute, and they all wanted to trade their horses for Zip! LOL There was only 3 of us in the clinic, so it was great to be able to get some one on one time with the clinician!

Hi, left a vote. Zip got so much needed arena time today. He rolled several times and ran around. I then played a bit with a plastic bag. Tied a plastic bag to the end of a long lunge whip, and then shook it all over. He didn't care. Then I dragged it on the ground, and he was following it all over the arena! Too funny! He is all ready for the clinic tomorrow!

HI, left a vote. Bonnie hauled Zip for me today. He got right into that trailer! He had to stand in it for half an hour when we got to Sue's barn, I had to get his stall all set up. Anyway, he was so quiet the whole time. Sue didn't even know he was in the trailer! She came up to me, "Where is Zip"?, "in the trailer", "he is"?, "yes"! LOL He settled right in. So very proud of him, he just took it all in stride, like he has done it before! LOL!

HI, left a vote. Bonnie is picking Zip up tomorrow! He got a bath today. Took me an hour to get him clean. Took three shampoos of his tail to get it clean! I soaked his foot again today, it is looking a lot better today, didn't seem to bother him when I cleaned it out today.

Hi, left a vote. Got my new computer today. It has a touchscreen, that is hard to get use too.

Got barn time in today. Bad news, Zip's abscess blew today, must not have completely blown last time. Poor guy, he soaked for the first time today, he was great with it. He now has his own stall, no turnout for him for now. Amber of course, not happy about this at all! LOL!!!

More bad news, Sue called me while I was at the barn to inform me she can't pick up Zip for the clinic. Crap, trying to find him another ride. Ugg, life without a horse trailer is not fun.

Rick saw the fork lift driver hitting the door frame. He said the man ran into it at least 3 times, then had to go out a side gate. I didn't see it, because I was checking out the display shed. Lowes told Rick they found another shed in stock. They're delivering it in the morning and not charging me for the delivery. Going to put it up behind Rick's metal storage container. It'll be protected from most of the wind. Will still anchor it. Love and a Happy Friday vote.

Rain and more rain. We need it and I’m happy it didn’t freeze here. I am having riding withdrawals at this point though. I need my saddle time for sure. The herd is a muddy messy to the MAX~total MUDSTANGS plus a little more mud. If it is not raining after work I will try and get pictures and post on FB, you will enjoy them I’m sure, have a wonderful Sunday ✞

Heavy rain, Monday night. Sadie's out of her corral until it dries up. Hopefully, soon. She plunders too much. Not much for her to get into. Just enough to keep her happy. Lol. Love and a vote.

Today’s inspiration: Horses are the dolphins of the plains, the spirits of the wind; yet we sit astride them for the sake of being well-groomed, whereas they could have all the desire in the world to bolt, but instead, they adjust their speed and grace, only to please us, never to displease.
- Lauren Salerno

(}—{) I am off work this weekend so I will phone vote some but mainly the contest. I would also like to wish all you a very Happy Mother’s day ♥ we have mud everywhere and I am thankful for that. I will pick up my grandson after work today and take him home in the morning. I will haul out to Whitney as I always do Saturday. It is the safest place to ride after the rains. Bill wanted me to ride at Ambers ranch but I feel that would be to muddy and I have never rode there before. I will stick to my safety zone at Lake Whitney!!!! Whinny’s, love & hugs…..

The farrier came yesterday and it turns out Cheyenne's hoofs weren't contracting properly so her frogs weren't growing and her hooves were staying small. The farrier said because of her lack of frogs it was uncomfortable for her to stand or walk. He said now that they are trimmed properly they should grow quite a bit just in the next few days.

Please vote Sierra HOTM!
To the Indian the Paints were more than a warhorse or a means of travel. He was a medium of exchange and a status symbol. The number of Horses he owned determined an Indian's wealth, and any wealthy hunter owned at least a half dozen horses. Paint-Horses were especially treasured and prized. Even though they never bred their horses carefully, the Indians took pride in their animals and made some attempt to breed for the coloring they admired so much.
The Paint Horse has always been associated with the Indian in legends, stories, songs, and even in today's television programs. At the siege of the Alamo, at the Fetterman massacre, at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, the Paint Horse was there.
