How We Met

She had broke out of her pen at the neighbor's and she broke my horse's fence down to eat their food. I returned her and offered a trade for my 20 year old mare so his kids could ride her so we did an even trade and I have been training her myself for about 2 months and she is a totally different horse!.

Long time no see! I know it's been a long time since I wrote in the blogs, but I'm here to catch up. Guess what? I found my own horse on Whinny Warz!! I've been playing that game for over a year, and suddenly, while I was playing this morning, THERE SHE WAS! Plus, I got 500 points for finding her.

I hope the new year has been good to you so far. I have lots of riding plans for once the weather improves, but for now, I'm just doing ground work and trick training. It's actually pretty fun.

I left you a vote, and have a horsey day!!

VOTE 47 HOUDINI JADE
Thanks my wonderful HC pals for supporting ALLIANCE for her HOTD win today. She received one last year when I had her on a different page. Now I can tell her late in the day here she is Queen for a Day again, but ALWAYS my princess, the sweet gal. I saw her this morning and she had NO WATER! I was tempted to tell the owner but shut up. I gave her carrots, went in her pasture and told her I thought she won. Now I KNOW and will go back this early evening to give her a “crown” of carrots. Then off to look after ANKA & Tao. I will most likely put ANKA with Alliance by end of the month on Alliance’s page to share. Anka received her HOTD last Sept. 2011. We thank you so much!

CONTINUED HISTORY OF THE ARABIAN.
The extraordinary environmental conditions of the Arabian Peninsula demanded the evolution of a superior equine athlete of exceptional intelligence and uncommon courage. Strength, fortitude and tenacity of constitution were paramount if any horse were to survive life as a warhorse on the rugged terrain. Swiftness and endurance were vital to the success of raids, and only those Arabians with the best combination of these nearly polar attributes were fortunate enough to escape the dangers of battle and earn the respect of their masters. The story is told of the great loyalty these horses would exhibit to their masters. They would be trained as young two-year-olds to respond to a bell, and then they would be left in the desert heat with no water until they became very thirsty. They would then be released near a body of water and right before the horses would reach the water the owner would ring the bell. The horses that would respond and come even in adversity would be chosen as the best and later would be bred to pass on their great loyalty to their offspring. Vitality of spirit and courage were also essential to success in battle; this was to be tempered by intelligence and kindness as both a willing mount and as a large domesticated mammal forced to live in close coexistence with the spartan, mobile life of his keeper.


Question of the day: If you had the choice of two free horses, one gorgeous but completely wild, and one of them very ugly, but well trained, wich would you choose?

Thanks for all the support, enjoy your weekend, and don't forget to vote Dakota for your Nov. HOTM!

Congratulations...today Jade has been on HC exactly 4 months! Maybe she'll get HOTD soon.

I've been spending the day riding, training, and preparing for winter chill. I like riding in snow, but I just wish it would snow when it's 70 degrees out LOL!!
Have a horsey day! Voted.

HISTORY OF THE ARABIAN(requested by Hardwin)
With a domesticated history dating back several millennia, the Arabian horse is considered the eldest and most important of all modern equine breeds. The origin of the breed can be traced to the arid, desert region of the Nejd in the Arabian Peninsula, a harsh environment in which the basics of life, food and water, are scarce, and the existence of both man and beast is challenged in the extreme. Within this unforgiving terrain, the nomadic tribes of the Arabic Bedouin have survived for millennia. Essential to their survival has been their relationship with the Arabian horse, a creature most prized above all earthly possessions. The oral tradition of the Bedouin claims the Arabian horse was first captured thousands of years before the birth of Christ from among the wild horses of the Nejd and tamed for utility under saddle. This was the beginning of perhaps the most important and most intimate coexistence between man and any other member of the animal kingdom, one that would drive both progress and civilization and forever change the fortunes of both species.

Thanks everyone for the helpful info on how to get Sierra backing straight. I always tend to make her back up really fast, but once I slowed down and rewarded her for each step she took, she started doing a lot better.

Question of the day: What is your favorite breed of horse and why?
I dont really have a favorite breed, I pretty much like any horses, but of course I have a soft spot for Welsh Mountain ponies.

Thanks for all the support for Dakota's HOTM run, every vote is appreciated!

Thanks so much for your vote...it was such a wonderful surprise to see Luna had been voted HOTD...and she wasn't even running for it! I gave her extra carrots, of course. I went riding yesterday, but afterwards I tried something I saw in a YouTube video. I started teaching her to "shake hands" (or hoofs? LOL). She started getting the idea of what I want after about 15 minutes. She doesn't offer up a hoof on command yet, but she started lifting her hoof towards me (instead of backwards, as if I was going to clean the hoof)and letting me hold it as long as I like. So that's progress, and today I will repeat until she gets it. It's just a stupid trick, but it's fun!

It's getting real cold around here now, but that won't keep me away from Luna. Have a horsey day! Voted.

Jade is gorgeous!
Thanks for the congrats for Luna! I love that Jade's nickname is "Houdini". It must be something about Appaloosas being natural escape artists. My Luna knows how to untie a quick release knot. At first I thought it was just coincidence that she grabbed and pulled the right rope. But after several times of finding her untied and wandering off, I caught her in the act...she went right for the "quick release" part of the rope and yanked it, then calmly walked away. LOL!
I left a vote for your Appy...ya gotta love those crazy spotted creatures! Have a horsey day!
