Over the next 30 years, the little bay stallion worked long, hard hours in the fields and on the roads of Vermont. Gradually, the local population began to talk about the feats of "the Justin Morgan horse". Standing just over 14 hands tall, Justin Morgan's exploits gained him fame because he was not as big as colonial workhorses nor as tall and long-legged as racehorses, yet he consistently outperformed both. There was the time he pulled a log no draft horse could budge, the day only he had the beauty, spirit and manners to carry President James Monroe on a muster-day parade ground; and the time he outran the most winning racehorse central Vermont had ever known, at least until that day.
Doing it all and doing it well, Justin Morgan remained sound of eye, wind, and limb throughout a lifetime of two ordinary horses. That should have been enough, but the stallion added still more: showy, ground-covering gaits with speed to spare at any one of them; a gentle disposition that made him safe enough for a child to handle yet spirited enough for any horseman, beauty men would to recall decades after his death; and a rare courage that made men who lost bets on him hit their flagons of rum and say, 'To the little Morgan!' and drink deeply.

Hi, how was your weekend? I had a pretty good weekend, a bit dreary though. We finally got some rain, not very much, but enough to at least wet the dust down. Of course when the ground gets a little bit muddy the horses have to roll, so I got them all brushed out. Thankfully Sierra doesn't roll very often yet.

Question of the day: If it is raining outside, would your horse rather stay out in the pasture or come into the barn?
Misty doesn't usually mind being out in the rain, but Sierra is a bit of a weenie and will run to her shed if she feels a few drops of rain. Dakota will usually stay out in his pasture unless it is really storming.

Have a great Sunday and dont forget to vote Dakota for your Nov. HOTM!

The Morgan Horse - An American Legend
Justin Morgan was a living legend. In the manner of so many heroes, he began as an unremarkable colt and became the father of an entire breed of horses recognized for quality and dependability.
Born in 1789, Justin Morgan started life as a small, rough-coated colt known as "Figure." In 1791, he left his birthplace in Springfield, Massachusetts with his new owner, the soft-spoken schoolteacher Justin Morgan, by whose name the stallion eventually became known. Although his breeding was unknown (thought to be of Dutch, Thoroughbred, or Arabian breeding), the quality of Justin Morgan's ancestry showed in his straight clean legs; deep muscling over his quarters and shoulders; and fine, intelligent head with large expressive eyes and short, pricked ears. Add to these the quality of his movement, a thick but silky mane and tail, and a clean-cut throatlatch, and you have the conformation of the ideal light horse. Despite these fine qualities, Justin Morgan's lack of size was such that his debt-ridden owner found no buyers on their journey north to Randolph Center, Vermont. It was simply fate that no one but, his new owner realized what a little giant he was.

Question of the day: When buying a horse, how important is color?
Color really isn't really a factor for me, I care more about the horse's personality, however I do really like paints.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, and once again thanks a million for all your support!

Continued history of the Canadian horse:

The Canadian breed became renowned for its abilities as a roadster, racer and stylish harness horse. By 1820, classes for Canadian Horses were being held at agricultural exhibitions in Lower Canada and in New York. Over the next decades, increasing numbers of Canadian horses, including the best stallions, were sold to the United States. Many found their way into the foundation stock of other breeds such as the Morgan, Tennessee Walker, American Saddlebred and Standardbred.
With the outbreak of the U.S. Civil War in 1861, Canadian Horses once again were used for miltary service when thousands were exported to supply the Union Army. By the end of the war in 1865, at least 30,000 Canadian Horses had been exported for military service.
Later, in 1874, Canadian Horses took part in the historic North West Mounted Police Great March West, in the Northwest Rebellion of 1885 and are even said to have served in the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Canadian Horses sent to serve in the Boer War in South Africa did so well that hundreds were subsequently purchased for the British Imperial forces and shipped overseas. During World War I, more Canadian Horses were shipped off to battle in France, never to return.
Ironically, the popularity and availability of the Canadian Horse almost caused its demise as a distinct breed.

Yesterday I rode Misty and ponied Sierra. They both did pretty good, considering I dont do it with them very often. Sometimes Sierra tends to get a bit rowdy when I am ponying her, but yesterday she was very well behaved. It is still pretty chilly out but at least the wind has died down.

Question of the day: If you were looking to buy another horse, would you rather buy a foal and train it from the begining, or buy a full grown horse that isnt trained quite the way you would like it to be?

Have a great weekend everyone and tommorow I will be blogging on Morgans!

How come Sadie is scared of the color blue?
History of the Canadian horse:The Threats to the Breed

The advent of mechanization during the mid 1900s nearly marked the end of the Canadian Horse breed. After the second world war, the Canadian Horse population steadily dropped until it hit crisis proportions in the 1970s. Less than 5 registrations per year were being recorded from1970 - 1974, and the number of horses had dropped to an estimated 400.
During the late 1970s a few influential breeders recognized the plight of the breed, and slowly started acquiring quality animals, setting up breeding programs, and once again began promoting the breed and its wonderful qualities.
By the early to mid 1990s, the breed finally began to look like it was on its way back to recovery. The numbers were up to about 2500 - 3000 live animals worldwide and the status was changed from "critical" to "rare" by the American Livestock Conservancy.
With its increase in popularity during the early 2000s, unfortunately, just as has happened to so many other breeds, pressure began to be placed on the Canadian Horse to change from the traditional breed type, in order to suit the show ring and to meet perceived market trends.

Wow, its hard to believe that October is half over already. I didnt do very much with the horse yesterday, because it was cold windy and misty.

Question of the day: What is your least favorite horse related chore?

My least favorite chore is probably watering Sierra and Misty because their pasture is too for away to water them with a hose and I dont have automatic waterers, so I have to haul 5 gallon jugs of water to them with the tracter, and it really gets to be a drag sometimes.

Thanks so much to everyone that is voting for Dakota, your vote is appreciated!
I hope you are all having a good fall!

The Canadian Horse is a little known national treasure of Canada. This hardy breed descended from horses originally sent to the “New World” by King Louis XIV of France in the late 1600’s. These Norman and Breton horses were felt to be of Arab, Andalusian and Barb ancestry – traits of which can still be recognized in the Canadian Horse today.
For hundreds of years, the French horses bred with little influence from outside breeds. They eventually developed into their own distinct breed - the Canadian Horse or Cheval Canadien. Because they evolved under the adverse conditions of harsh weather, scarce food, and hard work, the Canadian Horse remains the sturdiest and most acclimatized horse in Canada today. They are tough, strong horses, tolerant of inclement weather conditions, and are extremely “easy keepers”. Because of these traits, the Canadian Horse is often referred to as “The Little Iron Horse”.

Wow has it ever warmed up around here! Yesterday we had upper 70s but I dont think it is going to last very long. Yesterday some people came over to my aunts place to help her with some yard work( my aunt lives a very short distance from us). They had a couple kids that wanted pony rides so I brought Dakota over for them to ride and thay had a lot of fun.

Question of the day: Wich of the following is your horse most likely to spook at?
A. A loud vehicle passing nearby.
B. A vehicle moving in the far distance.
C. A plastic bag flapping in the wind.
D. A rustling noise coming from tall grass.

My HC pals are awesome and I hope you have a great day!

Yesterday my little brother Ethan and I went riding together and we had a lot of fun. It has been such a long time since anyone has gone riding with me, so it was nice to have some company. I rode Misty and Ethan rode Dakota. We went for a pretty long ride, got to gallop up some hills and chase in a few calves. It has finally warmed up and yesterday was a perfect day for riding.

Question of the day: Do any of your siblings/parents like to go riding with you?

Except for Ethan, none of my siblings like to ride with me, or at all for that matter.
My mom has never been on a horse in her life( boy she doesn't know what she is missing out on) and my dad isn't much interested in horses.

Have a great day and tommorow I will have some breed info on Canadian horses for ya!
Thanks so much for all the support!

Continued history of the Arabian(requested by Hardwin)Amongst the Bedouin, the life of the Arabian horse was starkly unromantic – harsh, little food of poor quality, scarcity of water, hot dry conditions, times of restrictive confinement followed by swift and tortuous raids. The life of the Bedouin was that of the daily struggle for survival, hence life was approached in the most unforgiving of contexts. Raids were considered an essential element of Nomadic culture, especially those taken against travelers. Life was one of incessant warfare, entailing forced marches and the roughest treatment. Pity was not taken for the injured or dying – death was accepted as both inescapable and inevitable. Both environment and culture seemed the most unlikely combination in which the successful rearing of any creature could long be sustained, yet through centuries of natural selection dictated by the necessity of man’s survival, the Arabian horse has not only efficiently evolved, but astonishingly thrived.

Question of the day: what is your favorite place to ride and why?

A ways behind out place there is a creek and when you cross the creek there are three large hayfields that I like to ride in. The hayfields are very flat and they usually get flooded whenever it rains, but it has been a very dry summer, so they havnt had water standing in them for a long time.
I would to hear about your favorite place to ride!

Thanks again for all the support, please continue to vote daily for HOTM runner Dakota!

Thats awesome that you rescued Sadie!
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!

Week two of the HOTM run, Woohoo!

Question of the day: Has your horse ever been in a near death situation and lived to tell about it? ( or rather whinnny about it)

A long time ago when my fencer wasnt working Dakota used to break out of his fence all the time, and several times ran down the middle of a busy tar road near our place, but never got hit. Another time he was inside his 3-sided shed when a tornado picked it up and completely demolished it, and somehow never got a scratch.
If your horse has ever been in a near death situation, I would love to hear about it!

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.

After getting home from work Friday night, I went out to the corral, as I always do. Sadie's torn the right side of her fly mask. It's ruined. She's hard on them. Needed to have bought a back up mask. I put apple cider vinegar in their water. The mosquitoes have been enjoying the trough too much. I, also, put some in Scruffy's water. Hope it works. Hugs and a Saturday vote.

I had Sadie and Star out of the corral for a couple of days. Since the corral is small, they're able to get some exercise and get away from some of the flies. Had to put them both up, because Sadie was into everything. She took the doors off of my tough shed where I had some hay stored and dragged it out. Good there wasn't much. Such a pretty pain in the behind. It was 104* today. It's cooling down. Hugs to all of you. Voted.
