How We Met

I saw her last Aug 2011 at our Palomino Show and fell in love with her. Asked if she was for sale, she wasn't.
But came up for sale this springtime, I found her on the internet at a trainer's barn that I know and loved how she progressed in Western Pleasure. I just purchased her on May 29th 2012

here is an excerpt from a vet about stretching:

Stretching exercises are more effective on "warm" muscles because the soft tissue is more elastic, easier to stretch, and less likely to be damaged. Thus the best time to stretch your horse is after a short warm-up routine or after your workout. You should plan on taking about 10 minutes to perform the exercises. Slow, gentle stretches are more effective and less likely to cause injury to you or your horse. Never jerk or pull against a horse that is resisting. Simply stop and ask again.

This is the philosophy I embrace so I do it after working the horse. I also read that cantering is a good exercise for engaging the pelvic and back area, more so than trotting. I always do more trotting so I'm going to ask the chiro what she thinks about more cantering than trotting. we all have to get into shape here for that! I usually just canter a few times around the arena and I'm done. today I rode buttercup and worked her a bit more at both trot and canter. no buck! I'm trying to keep her head down long and low. she's doing so much better. I'm pleased with the chiro.

thanks for the compliment! Its so relaxing working with her mane and braiding it, and its so fun! I remember doing it to Pony Jack and trying all kinds of braid work on her, she was so patient!
So had a carriage lesson at Claire's house today, we hooked up Joy, this was about her 6-7th time to be hooked up and she does so well! Johnny comes out and oversees the lesson. I got to ask him how Atlas (he renamed him Otis, but he will always be Atlas to me). and Johnny was telling me that he was riding him yesterday and for no reason Atlas went into a bucking fit! And he was trying to stop him in the corners but he kept going and Johnny didn't want to bail because he is an older fella and he knew he would hurt himself. Well any way he stayed on but still ended up hurt. Apparently he pulled some muscles around his pelvis and he was so sore! I feel terrible! Johnny was super nice about it and said he wanted to give Atlas back to me and he would give me 2 saddles if I hauled him home. But he said that he would never hop on a horse again and that he felt he was to old to be riding. So he is selling all his tack and carts (he has like 7-9 carts/carriages). Johnny said that he never did feel a connection with Atlas and felt like he was always on the alert. That so doesn't sound like the Atlas I knew, so we are thinking that maybe Atlas is a women's type horse and doesn't trust men. I am the only that rode him before I gave him to Johnny but I know that the guy that gave him to me would never beat him or abuse him. Im so sad, Johnny was my idol and to see him give up horse riding so easily is so hard for me. Sorry for the long blog!

Is that awfully cold for you this time of year? Sounds awful. Glad you got in a good lesson with Paige. We were 83 today, with high winds. Meant to ride Cisco, but when I went out to get him, Meg volunteered to get caught. I think she was a bit jealous that the other 2 got attention yesterday and she didn't, so today was Meg day, she really seemed to enjoy the attention. Cisco and Nugget got groomed out in the pasture.

our Saturday was windy and chilly too; I never could get warm all day. so glad Marissa is teaching you the finer points of showmanship. isn't it funny how when you learn something better, your horse just naturally responds, like they've been waiting for you to learn it?
unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it to the show yesterday. a long-winded friend showed up unexpectedly and didn't leave till after 4, and by then it was time to feed and start supper. I did get a ride in on BJ. I hope it's just boredom and not being sore somewhere or feeling bad, but BJ has gotten this super slow jog that I could beat limping backwards. im like, dude! I could finish my taxes while he's jogging to the other side of the riding ring ,lol. glad he doesn't go that slow out in the field or on trails- we'd never get anywhere.
well, there's actually frost on the ground this morning. it's not windy though, so maybe it'll warm up more today. I hope you have a relaxing and warmer sunday too.

the instructions were to do the stretches daily for 3-5 days then when ever possible. I'm trying to stretch them after every ride. I'm teaching my students how to do it so I will have help with it. one thing I noticed is that when they pee they do the pelvic tilt. I'm not struggling to do that one. they do it on their own several times a day! lol. I went to charlotte's saddler and met with their saddle fitter. looked at 3 saddles with wide trees. I need a 16in. she will bring them Wednesday to fit them to buttercup then i'll decide which to buy. one is a tucker, one a circle y flex 2, and the third is a circle y trail gaiter (usually used by gaited horses so it's more forgiving in the front for their high action). I picked out a blue biothane bridle and breastplate to go with it. I have to pay $70 for the saddle fitting but it will be deducted from the saddle that I buy. :)
I don't blame you for not walking to your neighbors in 22 degree weather! maybe spring will find it's way to you soon!

Hello, Spent about 4 hours at the barn talking and grooming Jax. He was so cute. You tell he was enjoying the attention. Used some dry shampoo to clean his tail at the base. He is all white there and it looked like he was rubbing it. Didn't ride as it was only in the teens. Hoping for tomorrow. Sounds like we are having the same weather. Only no winds for us, but in the teens tonight. I just read an article on how to make a square turn. Sounds like a lot of fun. I hope you get to start light riding. Must be really hard watching someone else ride for you. The fresh air tired me out. Vicki & Big Jax

thanks for the condolences. of all my outside dogs, he was the smartest and best behaved. we've had a german shepherd, and an autralian shepherd, and those shepherds have both been eager to please and smart. im grateful he lived a long and happy life. my remaining outside dogs are all strays and mutts. I love them, but they don't come when they're called very well, and will cross the road to play with the neighbors' dogs, so I cant let them out of their pens unless they are on a leash. I really need to get some sort of electricity involved, so they can get out safely.
yeah, those beagles can roam far and wide. hope she turned up again last night. hope your back feels okay today after the long showmanship lesson and then walking.
it's turned off chilly this weekend, lows down around freezing, but sunny. it really only affects plants, and the way things have been budding, I hope it doesn't kill fruit tree blossoms and gardens.
my friend who shows in reining and working cow horse is going to a show at the local big show arena today. im hoping to get to visit her for a bit- that's always fun. she isn't sure what time her classes start, so I probably wont be able to see her run, but I can hopefully visit without messing up her groove of getting ready and focusing. I also need to build or find an intermediate sized cage for the chicks. and of course, will try to squeeze in some horse time.
hope you have a good weekend. any plans?

Meant to have major horse time, but the herd had other ideas. Usually they come up in the afternoon, but today were WAY out in the pasture. Will have to start closing the gate to the big pasture tomorrow!

HI, left a vote. Not sure what I did to my right wrist, but I woke up with it 3 times bigger than my left one, and in a lot of pain. So, I am taking the weekend off from phones, computers, and horses to see if that will help. Have a great weekend everyone, I will be back on Monday!

I hope the chiro goes well. I know my niece can't ride for 6 to 8 weeks. (I gave her the information you gave me for her muscles.) She is really bummed. Most important is slow and better. Yeah I got to ride Thursday. Felt so good. Raining on and off, but its WARM! (38) Hoping to ride Sat. Promised the girls those bacon/maple syrup cup cakes. However,they are calling for rain/snow. Will have to see what it is when I get up. Have a great Friday night. Vicki & Big Jax

Glad to hear your back is feeling better. Wish I could send you some warm weather. :) ~~~~~
The vet came out on Tuesday, had all the coggins done, checked their teeth and cleaned sheaths. Poor Ace the drugs really took effect on him. He was so drowsy, it took him a good while to wake up. Susie looked worried about him. The herd is doing well. Had rain yesterday so its wet once again. Enjoy your weekend. Left a vote.

we are supposed to have a really nice sunny weekend. Cliff’s truck engine is still being put in. He needs my truck again so we will see how my hauling out goes. Last time this happened (weekend before last) he didn’t end up needing it and I hauled to Lake Whitney, but Bill may pick me and Deacon up and we will ride at Lake Waco instead. I will let you know Monday how my adventures go or I will most likely post some pictures under FB!!! Have a terrific weekend ~Whinny’s hugs & love ~ Ω

It was hard. I spent a couple of hours outside with him and he enjoyed that. My son met me there; he was only 6 when we got Micky and it was hard on him too. But the vet's staff was very sweet and Mick went peacefully.
Never actually got around to riding. Did brush everyone at dinner time. Also gave everyone their West Nile vaccines
Glad you got some Indy and Bullseye time and that they were good for you.

Yay! I finally got new tires for my car. My old ones were so old, they were probably bought at Methuselah's yard sale. Lol. Methuselah lived to be 969 years old. He was the oldest living man. Anything bought from him would be ancient. Leaving love always and a vote.

Lilly is tickled to be in the spot light as HOTD, today we had a great day riding in the arena, playing on the trail course that I have slowly been putting together, it's been fun, it was 70 + * today, unreal for Mosier this time of year, the cherry tree's are starting to bloom and there was a haunting buzz from the bee's as they were busy working,only put in an hour work at the orchard today, just felt like doing stuff around home and with the farm animals , Jack got a bath and all is good in our world, love Suz and Lilly

Deacon got his new shoes yesterday and Rocket and Whiskey had their trims done! I will keep Deacon that way through around July then he will go barefoot the rest of the year. We worked on the stretches again. They seem to respond well and it makes me feel good that I can help them gain muscle and feel better. Whinny’s, hugs and a vote ☆

glad you had a good lesson with Paige yesterday, and also that you're having a good serious melt off of snow.
the salt mines weren't too bad yesterday, one of the calmest days we've had in weeks. I was able to catch up on some of my computer-based-training we have to keep up with throughout the year. finally off today, but I don't look forward to it at all. one of the many things I need to do is to say good-bye to my old Aussie, Mick. he's at least 14 years old and has a had a bad heart and been on meds for it for over a year, and the meds just aren't working any more. he's been wheezing and stumbling around and not really enjoying life for the past couple of weeks, so it's time. he's been a really good dog and we'll miss him.
hope we both get some horse time today. take care.

Here's a vote from Buddy! It's been a long time since we've been on to blog, I've signed on now and then so my points don't go away, but haven't had time to do much of anything else. So here's a update on us!

Things didn't work out with the move to Grande Cache work/money wise for my fiancé & I, so we moved back to my home town of Grande Prairie, but of course that was after we put ourselves in major debt :( We're living with Robs brother currently, and trying to get back on track. Rob got a job doing the same as he was in Edmonton, and got his class 1 license last week, so now he can drive a big truck of his own and make more $$! I babysit my niece for my sister 5 nights a week, and still sell Scentsy. I'm looking for another job during the day, but haven't had much luck with it yet.

Buddy is still in Grande Cache, hopefully just until the end of this month. I have a place to keep him here just outside of town, I've just got to pay the Grande Cache people up in full before I can move him. I also have to find a trailer to rent and Rob & I both need the day off, as I won't be able to make the trip to GC and then back to GP before I have to babysit. There's lots I need/want to do when I finally have my boy back with me. I of course, want to make sure he settles in to the new place well, and spend some time with him since I haven't seen him this year yet (I feel terrible for this,) plus the owners of the new place want me to get him a vet check when he gets here.

I hope everyone has been well and enjoying horsey time! Hope spring has sprung for you all!

-Buddy & Jasmine

Charlie was riding a colt and it got down and rolled in the fresh area and smushed Charlies thigh and it got a hemorrhage and they have to keep opening it and cleaning it out, he says its painfull, and he is not one to complain.
Another lady came out and looked at Looesy today, she liked her but said she was to trained for her, she wasnt used to getting a horse to collect up, but they liked how she stops from the word whoa and backs when you shake your feet! she said she'll call me back and let me know.

♥ what a busy morning, I can finally take a moment and try to post on a few folks! I was able to work with the herd on the (exercises/adjustments) that Susan (sing and cross creek stables) mom showed us on FB. I used the hoof pick brushes to lift the belly from underneath to stretch the back-I used my fingers and then water to lift the butt area-then I flexed them low and high toward their back ends-I have to say they were very responsive! We had fun with it. I ended up having a nice day off with my herd. I also rode and did side passing, backing and flexing from the saddle. It’s to wet still to ride out. Have a great day!!!
