How We Met

I bought Tuffy from a breeder downstate from us. I have been looking for a horse for 3 months before we bought Tuffy. We were just about ready to give up and then this little fella came into our lives. He is probably one of the best horses I've ever ridden on the trail..

I just made a new video starring Pippin. It's called Pippin's Love and the link is above. I thought you might enjoy it. I also have new photos on Prince's and Eddie's pages. I would love for you to check them out. My sister also uploaded a new video of her parrot, Poirot, babbling away. The video is called Poirot's Babbling. I know she would love a visit from you. Have you been watching the Olympics? We have and they're pretty exciting. The opening ceremony was the best ever and we were just awestruck. Well, here's a vote for you and enjoy riding. ttyl

That's great that Tuffy has improved with his gaiting. I bet it's really comfortable. I guess you'll have to work on his trailering though. Pippin has no problem with anything like that. I was getting some plywood from his pen to use today and he was getting in the way of everything. He tried to get into a large box, stood on the plywood and bit it while I tried to move it and was generally a nuisance. Just so cute. Well, we don't have much snow left now but we did have over 2 feet for more than 2 months. We're in the mountains so sometimes we get lots of snow. I'm sure glad it is gone because it was getting pretty depressing. Here's a vote for you and Tuffy. ttyl

Thanks
for the compliments on Pippin's new photos. I'm glad you like them. We still have some snow here too but the weather is like spring during the day and it's really nice. I'm glad you liked the video too. That's great that you're taking Tuffy to an indoor arena. Have fun riding him. I took Pippin on a short walk today and we jumped over the irrigation ditch which he has avoided in the past. I used a mint cookie to coax him over and then on the way back he went over with hardly any hesitation. He was so good but it was kind of funny how he got over. He stood at the edge and let his front legs slide to the bottom and then half scrambled and jumped up the other side. Not graceful. Well, I hope you're having a great weekend and here's a vote for you. ttyl

His first name was Chris and I think his moms name was Kay. Yes he is a cowboy. But he did seem like he cared about horses. I traded him a Red Dun APHA breeding Stock mare for Onxy. And I still keep in touch with them.

I do not remember what the peoples last name was that I got her from. I do know they live in Birch Run. Do you know anything about my horse? I have been trying to track down past owners of her just to find out some back ground info on her.

I'm glad that you're able ride again. I hope Tuffy gets over his laziness. I'm sure he will the more you ride him. Thanks for checking out Pippin's video. I'm glad that you like it. I've ridden the Percheron a few times now and last time I got to ride a Belgian/Standardbred cross that has only been broken for harness. But he did really well and it was fun to ride him. Well, enjoy your weekend and here's a vote for you.

So, how did your ride on Tuffy go today? I bet it was fun to ride again. I'm sorry about his cut. Though I suppose it will heal up fast enough. It was amazing to ride the Percheron. I just can't get over how huge he is. His head is more than two feet long and his hooves are easily 8" in diameter. I wish he were closer so that I could take a picture of him next to Pippin. Well, did you see the video yet? Here's a vote for you.

So, have you had much time to ride Tuffy lately? You mentioned that you should be able to again. I'm working on Pippin's tricks video. I might have it done this weekend. Fingers crossed. Pippin's doing really well with the cart. He's good at backing up and turns really tightly now. I also had a chance to ride a friend's horse twice now. It's been so long since I had ridden but it all came back to me as soon as I was on Eddie. Eddie is a huge, beautiful, black, Percheron, 18.2hh. He's amazing to ride and so powerful. He generally pulls a cart and hasn't been broken for riding but he did really well. Well, I hope you have a great weekend with lots of riding and here's a vote for Tuffy.

Great new pictures!
Thanks for stopping by. It's fine that it's been awhile. I know what it's like to be busy. How's Tuffy doing? Is he behaving any better? Pippin is doing really well. I took him with the cart yesterday and there's an apple tree next to the lane where we drive. I didn't realize we were right beside it and I couldn't figure out why Pippin was going all crooked and not staying on the road. He was trying to get to the apples. Well, on the way back he got all excited and cantered to the apple tree. It was lots of fun and he behaved himself so I gave him an apple. He really loves them. I'm working on his new video. Well, it's filmed anyway but I just haven't had time to cut it. Well, I hope you're having a great weekend and I'm leaving you a vote.

I'm glad that Tuffy did so well at the fair. It really sounds like he's improving. And I'm glad that he likes jumping. That is so much fun. Especially bareback. Pippin likes jumping too. And I've taken your suggestion and I've started filming him doing his tricks. It will take awhile before I have it all put together because I've been so busy. Well, I'm leaving a vote for Tuffy. Talk to you later.

The fair sounds like fun. Are you taking Tuffy? Ours is going on right now but I don't have time to go. Too bad! Pippin's doing great. I took him on a bike ride today and a walk. So he got his exercise. I guess I got mine too. No more videos yet. It does take a lot of time. But I'm hoping to make more. Any great ideas? Here's a vote for Tuffy.

So, how did Tuffy do in the dark on that trail ride? I bet it was fun. I like riding in the dark. Pippin is doing really well. On Saturday I took him with the cart and left off the back part of the harness and the crupper. I think he liked having freedom to move and preferred it. He's getting really good at it. And I took Pippin for a short bike ride last Thursday. We went about 2 miles. I had only taken him for a really short walk for a week so he was raring to go. He galloped the whole way at an average of 19mph. He exceeded 22mph. He's pretty fast for a little guy but I don't know what the average speed of a mini is. I tried looking it up on google but with no success. Well, here's a vote for Tuffy. Take care.

Thanks
for checking out Pippin's video. I'm glad that you like it so much. It was great fun to make. Good luck with your Black Beauty poster. So you're going to be gone for a week with no riding. That's too bad. I hope Tuffy behaves for you when you return. Maybe he'll be so happy to see you that he'll be good. And then again, maybe not. Pippin is doing wonderfully and since I'm working outside a lot he has been around me a lot. It's fun to have him around. Here's another vote for Tuffy. Take care!

I hope you're doing fine and taking advantage of the summer to get lots of riding in. I just put a video of Pippin on YouTube. I would love you to go and see it.

So how is Tuffy doing with the gaited bit? Thanks for the explanation. Does it help his fox trot? I took Pippin with the cart yesterday and because it was cooler he was much more eager. But someone else tried to drive him and he just ignored their commands and wanted to follow me. I'll have to work on his training to listen to other people. With me he is very good. Well, here's another vote for Tuffy.

I'm glad that Tuffy is doing much better with the snaffle. I don't know what a gaited bit is. Is it a curb type? Pippin is doing really well with the cart. He can now do a full 180 degree turn so we can do U-turns in the road. And a couple of weeks ago I took him to the river with the bike and he came in and swam with us. I was really amazed because he hasn't liked water so far. But I think the cars going over the bridge scared him so he ran right in and wanted me to protect him. He followed me everywhere, he was so cute. I don't know when I'll get a chance to take him again. Does Tuffy like to swim? Well, here's a vote for you.

Well, I'm glad that Tuffy didn't have any serious problems. Is he still doing well? Are you planning any more shows? And yes, it is fun to have Pippin around. Someday you should get a mini horse. They are so cute and fiesty. Well, I only know one and he certainly is. He followed me around everywhere today and tried to get into all kinds of trouble. Here's a vote for you. Talk to you later.
