How We Met

after my horse Louie had to be put down i was devastated. i swore i'd never EVER find his replacement and that i would never find a horse i was bonded to as much as him. about a year later i decided to start searching for a new riding horse. i searched for MONTHS without luck until one day i found an ad about checkers. i had been to so many farms and looked at so many horses that i was starting to feel like i'd never find that one in a million connection with another horse again but still i told my dad to take me to see him. when we arrived at the farm and we were walking over to the pen i was excited but also so wary that this might be another dead end.....then i saw him.

he was standing at the gate with his long forelock covering his eyes, he looked like a wild stallion from a farytale. when i reached my hand out to pet him he licked my fingers and rubbed his head on my hand. i asked if i could take him out and she said yes so i clipped a lead on him and walked him around the yard. he was a little strong on the lead but he was exactly what i was looking for! his eyes (when i could see them peek out from under his forelock) held a certain curiosity and longing to explore that i knew matched my own feelings of adventure. i told myself not to decide on him that day and to go home and see how i felt. as we pulled away i kept looking in the rear-view mirror. we were halfway home when i told my dad that i had found my horse. he was skeptical at first and questioning if i really liked the horse or just his handsome appearance but i knew he was the one i had searched for all these months.

my dad called Checker's owners and told them that we would take him. they delivered him the next day and i have been madly in love with him ever since. he has tested me and given me many a hard frustrating day but i wouldn't trade him for anything. he has been a teacher, a friend, a secret keeper, a show partner, a trainer but most of all he's been my equine soul mate. i don't think i'd be in this part of my horse career if it wasn't for him and all the lessons and friendship he has given me! i thank him everyday for helping me as much as he has!

Celebrating Easter with love, hugs & votes 4 all!
✞ Picking up from yesterday about him tossing his head about bugs. Sometimes I can make a pony tail in his fore lock and that helps a lot. I think he sees his hair sometimes and over reacts, big ol’ treat hound! As soon as we get under the trees on those trails he just stops tossing his head and settles right back into his awesome self. I will add Rocky Mountain facts to my blogs for the rest of our HOTM run. I hope you enjoy them =)
The history of the Rocky Mountain Horse from 1890 to the latter part of the 1900s carries little or no documentation and few facts that can be proven beyond the shadow of doubt. Everyone who personally witnessed the breed's beginnings (back to the 1800s) is deceased, and we have been left with only verbal history passed down from generation to generation. Thus, all that can be recorded at this point in time are the stories recollected by living descendants. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Happy Sunday!
I saw Checkers on Whinny Warz and voted for him, and I wanted to see his blog. he's really pretty! I love Appys, Paints, and other horses with "chrome".
It snowed (again) last night. I normally like the snow, but enough is enough. The old snow hasn't even melted away yet, so now there's just snow on top of snow. Oh well, I'll just make a thermos of hot chocolate and head to the barn to watch the horses romp in all the white stuff. Winter OR summer, it's fun to watch horses run and play! I left a vote, have a horsey day!

I have to clean up while Fancy & Trigger eat grain to keep Fancy from raiding Trigger's bucket. At first he would run, but soon he learned that I am shooing Fancy away. Now, when Fancy comes towards his grain, he will look at me pitifully. I wish you could see his funny pitiful face. It is so funny.
Trigger sure has come around in body condition. He looks like a different horse now. All shiny and finally gaining weight.

Are you enjoying more horse activities this time of year? We sure are!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Cowboy Definitions:
1. Between Hay and Grass - Neither man nor boy, half-grown.
2. Big Augur - Ranch Owner.
3. Big Bug - Important person, official, boss. "He's one of the railroad big bugs."
4. Big Figure - To do things on on a large scale.
5. Big Fifty - A .50 caliber Sharps rifle used by professionals for buffalo hunting. It was 16 pounds unloaded, with three-quarter inch, 120-grain black powder cartridges loaded for differing ranges.
6. Biggest Toad in the Puddle - The most important person in a group.
7. Biggity - Large, extravagant, grand, hauty.
8. Big Guns - Men of importance, great people.
9. Big Jump - Death.
10. Big Nuts to Crack - A difficult or large undertaking.
