How We Met

I volunteer at a horse rescue, and the lady who owns it (who is also like my second mom) wanted a horse of her own that she could raise. At our local Horse Expo, the Humane Society brought out an 8-month-old colt. He was small and scraggly, but he was adorable! She had always wanted a paint, so she adopted him. He's become kind of both of our horses, because we are both in love with him and we are both training him. He's so cute :)

***Are you a Christian? I am! Let me know if you are. I want all the Christian friends I can get on here! The Church is an amazing group of people. Even if you're not a Christian, I want to be your friend, but if you are, that's really cool! :) God bless!***

Here's a big hug for Koda!
After church today I'm hoping to get to get a quick ride in. The weather has been so lousy lately (either too icy, too muddy, etc) that it hasn't been safe to ride. I really miss my saddle time. So, maybe today? we'll see. I left Koda a vote, and have a horsey day!

Happy Friday!
I spent the big blizzard vacationing in Orlando, swimming in the hotel pool (yeah, I know, I'm a brat LOL)! I didn't do anything "horsey" on vacation, but the theme parks were fun, and I got to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, because I'm a big Harry Potter nerd. My kids even talked me into riding a big scary loopy roller coaster...yikes!

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. How's Koda doing with training?

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.

Well, have a horsey day!!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Let There Be Peace:
Please keep the Sandy Hook Elementary School community in Newtown, Connecticut in prayer. Also pray for the safety of all children, for evil does not respect boundaries.

Matthew 2:16-18
16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men.
17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:
18 "A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more."

Guess what, I got the horse! His name is Scout and I would really appreciate it if you could stop by his profile. So far he has been awesome, he didn't get at all spooky about being in a new place when we brought him home yesterday. When we went to get him I asked if I could ride him before I decided if I wanted to get him. His owner got out her saddle but couldn't find the cinch, so she just got on bareback. She said he hadn't been ridden for a year but he did great! After a few minutes she got of and said If I'm 72 years old and can ride him then so can you! So I hopped on and he did just fine!.He stopped turned and backed up without me hardly moving the reins. He was such a sweet boy that I decided I wanted him! He got pretty excited when we loaded him in the trailer but once we got to our place he calmed down. When we pulled in our driveway Dakota's head came up and he looked like he knew something was going on. He got very excited when I led Scout out of the trailer but Scout didn't seem to mind him too much. Right now I have Scout loose in the pasture and Dakota locked in a seperate part of it. Hopefully today I can let them loose together. He is such a sweet wonderful horse and I'm so glad I got him. His back is swayed really bad, but he is very comfortable to ride. I wont be able to lope him very much because he is so old but he has a nice smooth trot. I will probably be uploading a video of him and Dakota soon.

After all the excitement of getting a new horse, I didn't really feel like riding Misty but I decided to saddle her up anyway, and I am so glad I did! For the last while I had just been riding her in a small fenced in area but yesterday I got her out and went for a good long gallop and we both enjoyed it a lot. I had a hard time getting her to slow down she just wanted to GO! It felt so exhilirating and I'm so glad I decided to ride her.

Hey guys I have some exciting news, I might be getting another horse! Yesterday afternoon my mom said she saw an ad in the paper for a free horse. I didnt think much about it because I thought if it is free than it must not be trained very well. Later I got a bit curious and asked my mom to call and ask about the horse. The horse is a 28yr old part Paint, part QH, part Thoroughbred-or at least thats what my mom said, I think that she may have gotten it mixed up. His owner said the reason she was giving him away was because she was moving into town and didn't have a place to keep a horse. We were planning to go take a look at him right away but his owner said that she was at work so we are going to wait until Monday. I cant wait I am sooo excited! I really hope this works out, his owner said that he is very well trained. I have my fingers crossed! Oh well, better get going, left a vote!

Hey Kaity
How are things going with you? I am so exited yesterday there was this new math concept. And I did not get anything about it and today I did all the problems like a prow. Must have been a God thing. How is school going for you. Do you get Horse Illistrated magazines. Because today I got a magazine and it had a page that was about helping mouthy horses. And the first thing i thought of was Cocoa LOL. This could be the suloution to his issues. If you get the magazines let me know but this is the name of the article With Clinton Anderson Something to Chew on. Tell me what you think about the article. I am considering trying his technique out on Cocoa. :) I hope you had a great day.

Hi Katie!

So sorry to hear about you and Lady. I hope you will be able to see her again, someday. Glad to hear you still have Koda and Beau, though. :)

I've been out of town for the past three days, and I've missed my horses like crazy! We left them with enough hay and water for the length of the trip, but I still worried about them the whole time. I just got back about an hour ago, and Kota and Lightning both neighed when they saw us coming down the driveway. Lakota was happy to see me, but Lightning is always grumpy and just kind of walked over to me to let me pet him, and then walked away, lol. He was happy to see me when I gave him his dinner, though! I'll be catching up on the boys' training tomorrow, though.

I want to get the Method on dvd as well, but I have the same problem! It's so expensive, and since I'm just 15, I don't have a paying job yet, so I can't save up. I suppose that'll have to wait for later. I do what I can with what I have, and what I see on TV. I really need a round pen to get it going, but I haven't had the money for that, either.

My prayers are with you,
Ashley.

Come visit me, Lakota, Lightning & Hunter.

Wow, what a lot of wonderful blogs I read today. There sure is a lot going on. It was windy here today so we played with our huskies. Fancy and Trigger sure seem to be enjoying this weather. I feed Trigger in the stall now so Fancy will not take his grain. As Trigger eats in peace Fancy gives him the mean look. After I let him out, Fancy checks for anything he has left behind, then she chases him for eating it all up. Silly mare.

I contacted the store where I purchased Fancy's boa boots. They could ship them to the company for repair and I would have to pay shipping and repair cost. I chose to use the services of our local leather repair shop. He gave them a looking over and saw that the stitching came undone. He glued them, stitched them right up, and it barely cost a thing. If they come undone again, I will consider other options.

Vote #162 for Koda!
Hi! I know it's been awhile since I visited, but i wanted to know how Koda's training is going. Have you made any major breakthroughs?

It was such a wonderful surprise to see Luna had been voted HOTD yesterday...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.

Early history of the Welsh Mountain pony.
The Welsh Mountain pony, one of the earliest established breeds, has roamed the mountains and wild regions of Wales for over a thousand years. Descriptions of these ponies from the time of Julias Caesar( when many where shipped to Rome to take part in chariot racing) tell of the beautiful head with huge, bold eyes and small pricked ears. Subjected to the rugged terrains of the Welsh landscape and often severe weather conditions, the Welsh Mountain pony not only survived for centuries, it thrived! Thus has evolved a breed world-renowned for its intelligence, strength, soundness and endurance. Welsh Mountain ponies are justly recognized as one of the finest foundations for horse breeding in the world. GROWTH OF THE BREED IN AMERICA While Welsh ponies were imported to America as early as the 1880's the Welsh Pony and Cob Society of America was not established as a breed registry until 1907. Interest in the breed dropped during the depression years , but through the combined efforts of breeders, particularly those in the East, participation in shows and fairs continued. By the 1950's the numbers of members grew, more ponies were imported and interest in increased dramatically. Over the next few decades Welsh became the fastest growing breed in America. Registered Welsh ponies and cobs can be found in every state and also in Canada. To date, over 45000 Welsh ponies and cobs have been registered. USES OF THE VERSATILE WELSH PONY The Welsh breed is ideal for the growing child and has the spirit and endurance to challenge an adult. Today Welsh ponies and cobs can be found competing in nearly every discipline...hunters,driving, dressage, combined training, combined driving, English and Western pleasure and heavy harness. Please support my Welsh Mountain pony Dakota during his Nov. HOTM run! Maria, Dakota N the girls.

I THINK THAT IT IS MOSTLY PEOPLE WHO NEED TO BE TRAINED! ( LIKE IF YOU WERE TO WATCH THE HORSES' BODY LANGUAGE THAN THAT WOULD HELP ALOT!)

SORRY, I TALK... TYPE, TOO MUCH:)
I GET SO TANGLED UP IN MY THOUGHTS THAT I FORGET STUFF, SO IF YOU ASKED A QUESTION & I DIDN'T ANSWER THAN THAT'S PROBABLY WHY, JUST THOUGHT I WOULD TELL YOU THAT NOW:)
ACTUALLY, IN FACE-TO-FACE CONVERSATION I CAN HARDLY UTTER A WORD PROBABLY BECAUSE I'M SHY & DON'T HAVE TIME TO THINK WHAT TO SAY:)
HARD FOR YOU TO BELIEVE THAT NOW, HUH?!? :)
SEE 'YA!

Guess what I have been working with Cocoa and doing join up with him it is so funny though because he will follow me for a while until he finds something to eat he yanked a huge chunk of grass roots and all up out of the round pen. Then I tried to take it from him because he was suposed to be working not playing with his food.seems to be pretty aggresive with the food dont you think.He nearly pulled me over when i tried to take it.:^). I CANT WAIT TO RIDE HIM THIS SUNDAY I WILL HAVE TO TELL U ALL ABOUT IT.

Come visit me, Sally, Babe & Cocoa.

PLEASE vote HOTD! ★Tundra 218445★

I have to tell you that Fancy and I jumped our first fallen tree Friday and it was awesome! I hope we get to ride there again before someone removes that tree!

Saturday after I blogged & voted Little Cowboy & I left out for a ride. We rode across town to the farm. This was his first time riding all the way across town. On the way there he did great.
We joined my brother and one of his friends for a ride into the woods. We had not been 30 minutes into the ride when it began to thunder. It began to thunder very hard and we turned back for the farm. It kept raining but the thunder did cease, so Little Cowboy and I headed back across town in the rain. It is an hour's ride by horseback. Little C loves riding in the rain. Before we reached home, the rains had stopped and it was getting hot again.

There are many storms in the forcast for the next 4 days. This evening we had storms pass through as well. Due to the storms, we will not plan to ride. But you never know.

I know you have done something fun or have something fun planned for Monday. I hope the weather in your back yard holds up nice and pretty for you.
