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. Had a thunderstorm pass over last night, poor Zip, was so scared! Amber was just fine. It wasn't bad where she is at. But here, that thunder was right on top of us and very loud! I think I may need a boat soon if this rain doesn't stop!

Hi, left a vote. Zip and I did all of the exercises we learned at the clinic today, he did great. After we were done, I let him loose in the arena to roll. Well he rolled all right, right next to the arena wall! Such a helpless feeling when you are watching this happen, I was thinking please don't roll all the way over, then, he rolled all the way over and into the wall. He didn't move, he just laid there. He was looking at me, I think he was wanting my help. After about a minute or so, I started to walk slowly towards him, just talking to him, then he tried to get up. When he realized he couldn't, he remained calm, and figured it out. Scared me to death! So glad he stayed calm, and got out of it. Stinker!

Hi, left a vote. Thank you all so much for HOTM! What a great way to start off the day. We worked hard all week, so I gave King Zip the day off! He got lots of love and treats today!

Hi, left a vote. Just got back from the clinic. It was 30 this morning, and really foggy. So cold out, not good when you are fighting a cold. Fog is finally now burning off.

The clinic was great. We were the only ones there this morning, so we got nearly 4 hours of one on one time! We needed it! LOL Looking forward to working on all that we learned from this clinic.

I want to thank you all for your support of Zip for his hotm run. Not sure if we will get it, but we made some new friends along the way. Thank you all!

Hi, left a vote. Did our homework, put the saddle on, did the homework again, did some mounting block work, put a little bit of weight on the saddle, and worked on sacking out. He was a champ!

Hi, left a vote. Did our homework again today, he is getting pretty good with it now. We are moving the hindquarters, forequarters, flexing, backing, all in stage one. We will be learning stage 2 this weekend. I introduced him to the mounting block today. Didn't bother him. I got on the high step, making noise, flapping my arms about, he was looking at me like I had lost my mind! LOL! Maybe I have Zip! LOL!

Hi, left a vote. Did our homework again today, he did great. I put a lightweight saddle on him, then did the homework again, then lunged him lightly. He just didn't care about that saddle! I hope we keep this trend going! LOL!

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!

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.

Congratulations on HOTD!
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 ✞
