How are you doing? I am going to write a pure copy and paste message because I am so far behind with my HC blogs that you wouldn't believe it.

A lot has happened since I last blogged properly on here and I can't promise to be on as much as I would like.

Eddie has settled in really well. He and Pippin are great friends but boys will be boys and because of their giant size difference, 2000lbs vs 200lbs, they cannot be alone in the same field. So, Eddie has a pen within Pippin's huge day pen and they get at each other through the fence.

Eddie is the tall silent type and his previous owner has never heard him make a noise. Well, now that he's here he whinnies if we take Pippin for a walk and leave him behind. He nickers low and sweetly when Pippin is put in the pen near him. They are cute together.

We've had a couple of tough moments, health-wise, with both of them. Eddie had several episodes of choke earlier this year leading up to a major case which almost killed him. The vet actually thought he wouldn't make it and we were discussing the dreaded topic of carcass disposal…

Well, the long and short of it is, he's completely and absolutely healthy and looks the best he's ever looked. He's fit and shiny and has a spring in his step. That is, when he's not sleep walking which he'll do on a hot day like today.

3 weeks ago Pippin had surgery for the removal of 2 large enteroliths from his colon. They weigh about 3lbs and I've kept them as souvenirs. He's on the road to recovery and is also doing super well.

For a couple of months he was rapidly going downhill and we couldn't figure out what was wrong with him. Using a portable x-ray the vet discovered the stones. They are so huge that she actually screamed when spotted them on the radiograph. It's a wonder that he was still eating and pooping fine. Not sure how that was even possible.

Anyway, that's what's up here. I will try (really I will!) to write more often.

I hope you had a great weekend! Leaving a vote.

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

♡♥♡ Happy Presidents Day…I had a very nice weekend and hoping you did too!! I hauled Deacon to Lake Whitney and met some friends. It was so beautiful out, calm clear skies and the temp was around 62. Perfect day! We didn’t get back to the trailer until after dark. The people I rode with do not really do much picture taking so I got 2 pictures of just Deacon but they turned out ok. Sunday was clear and 68 but the winds were 18 to 25 mph so I didn’t ride but I did chores around the barn and helped Cliff put in an opening for a gate area so we can let the horses out to the middle turn out through their main area they stay with the barn. Just enjoyed being out side and of course I had to muck stalls. Hope you had a great weekend too!!!!

I spent Valentines Day at home with Sadie. What a character. Rick picked up my hay. I had the gate open, so Rick could drive through it. Since I had Sadie out of the corral, I had to block her to keep her from getting out. That worked for a while. She, eventually, got out, of course. She had a blast. She played keep away with Rick, letting him get close and,then, hauled butt with that tail curled. Rick was not amused. It only took a carrot to get her back in. She didn't try to run off. She just wanted to play. Hugs and a vote.

I love your new photos, how are you?

HI! Our herd is dashing by with a good night vote. When I finish leaving my blogs and votes I will read the blogs on my pages. How are you tonight? I am tired and ready for rest, playing catch up is hard when you get old. LOL! But at least I am better now! And happy for it!
I caught up on half of my work load. Then I went outside to clean up.

Cleaning up after Fancy and Trigger was not hard as I expected. Was I glad for that! I have an old tire that I used in the past to teach Fancy to pull using the saddle horn. I put that in her corral, just in case she wanted something different to play with. It wasn't long before Fancy had the rope in her mouth and she was swinging the tire back in forth in front of her. It was very funny to see. But I did wonder if it was safe. Do you think there is any harm of her breaking her teeth by doing that? It is a small tire, but a little larger than a wheel barrow tire.

Trigger never plays with anything, or at least we never see him play with anything. He just stands around or eats. He is soo quiet. Trigger and Fancy are the total oppisite. She will run crazy and gets angry if Trigger does not run too. Once in a blue moon Trigger will run with her, but that only last one go around and he is done. LOL.

Have a good night!
I will try to get on earlier tomorrow so I can leave my usual blog.

History on the Gorgeous Akhal-Teke
*please read very interesting sorry its long

The Akhal-Teke evolved about three thousand years ago in southern Turkmenistan where they are the national emblem. They are named after the nomadic tribe that bred them and are found mostly in Turkmenistan and Russia. These beautiful horses adapt to severe, climatic conditions and remain to be one of the oldest and purest breed of horse still living today. They are thought to be the predecessors of the Arabian and English thoroughbred breeds. Due to their endless stamina and the ability to withstand great extremes of temperature they were originally bred as war mounts and later for racing. Today the Akhal-Teke is used in all competitive equine sports including endurance, dressage, jumping, and eventing. The blood of the Akhal-Teke horse carries an ancient Oriental legacy laced with the endurance born of centuries of survival in the unforgiving Turkmenian deserts.Hi i am Twilight i am running for HOTM and i need some votes but if you are new to the HC or you need help with something come and ask me i will help you as much as i can.Thank you for reading and heres a vote for you have a great day!

Merry Texmas to you!!!
I want to wish all my very special friends here on HC a Merry CHRISTmas! Travel safely and enjoy your family and friends.

I haven’t had much horsey time but of course our horses live with us so I see them every day! Morning feedings & evening feedings are my quality time on the days that I cannot spend much time with them. I can look out my window when I’m home and see their beautiful images too at any time…I feel so blessed to have them in my care and I thank the lord every day that I have been chosen to be their care taker ♥ ♥ ♥

May your Christmas be bright ✞

Thank the Heavens above we got rain finally after 10 weeks!!!!

My friend Gail came over yesterday afternoon and we rode for several hours. We had a wonderful ride. We got sprinkled on about 3 or 4 times but we knew that would happen before we even started. The bigger rain was not expected until after 5 pm so we knew it wouldn’t last long. Gail’s horse is pretty young (4) but they did great together! We WTC all over the fields and just had a blast. Deacon is my Cadillac! He is so smooth! So easy to ride…..

Many prayers for the families that lost children and loved one’s yesterday at Sandy Hook Elementary…WOW I can’t believe these things happen…..

Hi everyone. The photo shoot went well. Sadie had to have an attitude at first. I can't post any pictures on FB, since they're a surprise Christmas gift Trisha and her sister are giving their dad. I felt it was okay to use a picture I took as Sadie's profile picture, because her family isn't on HC. Love to you all and a vote. ps - Trisha's wearing the white hat.

Going to saddle up on a day off next week.... Sadie has a photo shoot Saturday morning. It was rescheduled for 7 am. A friend and her sister are surprising their dad with the pictures for Christmas. What an honor for Sadie. Hugs, love and a vote.
