Thoroughbred from ???, CA

Marvel

About Me

Active within 797 Days

I am from ???, CA and I've been a Club Horse member for 2 years, 2 months and 11 days

Nicknames: Mostly I just call him whatever pops into my head when I see him and that can be anything from Chookers to Marvelous Me.

Age: 7 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Thoroughbred

Height: 16.3 - 17.1hh

Color: Black

Type of Riding: Were doing mostly dressage and trails but occasionaly I pop him over a little cross rail unfortunately because of a wonky knee he'll never be a jumper.

My Horse's Achievements: He went from being an unhandled two year old to being my little teddy bear with a real talent for dressage.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: He will eat anything including clothes and hair if I don't pay attention he'll chew my hair into slobbery ropes.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Goof off with his horsey friends, and have a nice long grooming or a rub down with a warm rag.

Pet Peeves: He's verry cautious about things at first but once he realizes their okay then he calms down. Sometimes he pulls stupid stuff when he's frightened or pissed off but for the most part he's a great guy.

My Horse's motto: The hardest part of riding is the ground, especialy when it's 17.1 hands beneath your butt.

How We Met

For as long as I can remember my family has taken in the overflow rescue horses and rehabilitating them then selling them to suitable homes. Marvel is the product of a PMU factory up in Canada, we bought him at an auction while looking for neglected horse. His chances of becoming dog food where higher then I care to say. The origanl plan was get some wait on him and do some basic training then sell to a good home but I fell in love and couldn't bare to give him up..

Visited all the rescues you have, AMAZING!
Vote 18 and please keep him! Marvel is gorgeous and deserves the love of a GOOD human for the rest of his life! If I had more space and the houses were not getting built around pur pastures, I would be over run with neglected and abused equines!

How are you doing? Wow, it's been a long, long time since I blogged properly on here! This has been the craziest summer ever. I'm always busy and somewhat insane but I think I've taken both to a new level because I've been insanely busy. :)

Without boring you with too many details I'll just say that I've had to take several road trips for work and the past 3 weeks I've been literally working day and night to meet a deadline. But, it's good to keep busy, right? I just miss my nighttime blogging.

Thank you so much for stopping by for Eddie's win for hotd. I was gone when Prince won and in between trips when Eddie won. But it sure was nice to read all the congrats and to see them in the spotlight again.

Pippin is doing is great as are the big boys. I see them once a week to drive and I really like driving a lot. I still wish I could ride but I'm happy that not only do I get to spend time with horses but I get to drive them.

I take Pippin out as much as I can. Not every day like we're used to because I'm so busy but at least several times a week, even if it's just a walk.

Just the other evening I took him out for a cart ride with Melian. He hadn't been out for about a week and was feeling the need to stretch his little legs.

We were going at a nice trot for a mile or so. Once he warmed up properly he wanted to go faster so I set him at a fast canter. That got Melian interested in a race. They love racing each other!

So, she started teasing him by zigzagging back and forth under his nose and he chased her trying to nip at her bony butt.

Suddenly she did a rollback and accidentally rolled back onto her butt. She was SO mad. I think she felt embarrassed and she let out a huge growl. It was plain that she blamed Pippin and she let him know.

That got him going and he took off at an earth shattering gallop. It was the fastest I have ever seen him pull a cart. It felt like it was going to explode into a million tiny parts. Wow, that was fun! He ran like that for over a mile. What a rush!

That had me smiling and he got a nice bounce to his step. I'm sure you agree that there's nothing like a good ride or drive to bring things back into perspective.

Thanks for sticking by me even though I've not been around. I'm getting caught up on my blogs today (I hope) but I'm not sure how often I can blog. Still lots of work to do.

Here's a vote for you and I hope you're having a nice horsey weekend.

PS Thanks to all who voted for Pippin the Amazing Grazers contest. He won first place in the VHS!

PPS I thought that this was cute enough to mention. The other night we were watching Olympic showjumping and Melian saw the horses on the screen. She loves running with the horses and she growled and tried to catch one as he went over the jump. :)

PPPS Ooh, I love your avatar. It would go well with the one I made for Prince.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.
