My Horse Profile

Paint Horse from annanndale, MN

Sierra~vote Whiskey 237221 May HOTM!

About Me

Active within 1 Day

I am from annanndale, MN and I've been a Club Horse member for 1 year, 8 months and 11 days

Nicknames: CeCe, Baby Girl, and Sierra Mist.

Age: 2 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Paint Horse

Height: approximately 14.2 hands

Color: Black with white on all 4 legs and 2 white markings on her shoulder and neck. She was brown as a yearling.

Type of Riding: She will be ridden western and maybe a little English once she is old enough.

My Horse's Achievements: Sierra knows how to lead, longe, back, pick up her feet, load into the trailer, ground drive, flex her neck, wear a saddle and bridle and be ponied off of another horse. She also knows the voice commands walk, trot, lope, reverse and whoa. She is used to having a tarp draped over her back and she will drag it around without spooking. She got over her fear of fly spray! She now stands still when I spray her and she doesn't mind getting it around her face.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Apple flavored treats are her favorite but she will eat just about anything else to.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Eat, run and play, chew on everything, be with her mom Misty, and follow me around.

Pet Peeves: Getting wet, being alone, bugs, not getting any treats. She is kind of a one person horse and can be aggressive when people she doesn't know touch her. I was pretty much the only person around her as a baby so she is fine with me.

Fancy's Perceptions: "The wagon rests in winter, the sleigh in summer, the horse never." (Yiddish Proverb)

Here is a vote. Have a peaceful night.

Thank Marion and Paige for the wonderful and informative video they posted on HC this week. I studied the video and today Fancy and I practiced for showmanship. I was very excited! At first Fancy was doing well. We were a bit awkward but we will get it right. There were a lot of children visiting their grandparents and the neighborhood was very busy. I think all the noise and Fatima took Fancy's attention today. We shall try again tomorrow.

Fatima saw Fancy's work out and she did not want any part of me today. Fatima ran from me so, I had to lounge Fatima so I could catch her. After I caught her, Fatima was good. I groomed her, put her bridle on and drove her from the ground. She is not good on walk command nor whoa. But today was the best day with her yet. And the more she fills out, the more she begins to look Arabian like. She has an Arabian face after all. Fatima acts like Trigger when he first came to live with us.

Good night.

sure hope you are warming up some!
Whiskey has a fast walk that is like the true gait of a Rocky Mountain but it isn’t as pronounced like the other RM horses I see, it’s a little different. He has the smoothest gallop and run. He has the energy to go go go. He will go no matter how long you want to ride-his battery never seems to run out but that is the breed, again they started out as a utility horse!! Whiskey stays to himself; he doesn’t really hang with the other 2, only once in a while. Deacon picks him as a favorite for a day or 2 then they separate and Rocket is Deacons main herd mate. With a heavy heart and a lot of thought I have decided to change the rest of my HOTM run to include what happened with Whiskey starting the 11th of April. I will still include the RMH tidbits =)
The families of eastern Kentucky who owned these horses were not wealthy and could not afford to spend a lot of money on the upkeep of their horses. Unlike Kentucky Thoroughbreds that were typically owned by wealthy people, the gaited horses of eastern Kentucky received no special care, and as a result, most of the weak ones did not survive. These horses withstood the harsh winters of eastern Kentucky with minimal shelter, and they were often fed "fodder", a kind of rough silage. Some had to exist on whatever sustenance they could find. So, like deer, they ate the bark off trees when they were hungry. Only the horses that survived these extreme conditions lived to reproduce their kind.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Here's a vote from Buddy! Well I got the pictures uploaded from the ride where Buddy was well behaved! The show this weekend is now cancelled because of the poor weather. It's been raining since last night and we've gotten quite a bit of rain so far! In addition to the rain today the power went out at 5:30 this morning and didn't come on until 2:45 this afternoon, so us girls had to do the barn chores in the dark! It was quite an interesting time, especially since the horses stayed in!

I'm quite sore today from being bucked off yesterday, and I know working today didn't help at all. I'm going go take a pain pill tonight before I go to bed, so I'm hoping that helps. I'm hoping the weather co-operates and gets nicer over here and I hope it's been nice for everyone!

Whiskey’s mane & tail change colors several times in the year by going lighter then darker. His body color changes as well. He truly loves his bath time and grooming, he trailers well in any type I load him in, and will load without heisting at all. He is also my bareback horse. Perfect back for it so if I don’t feel like putting the saddle on I can always just get myself up on him and go at any time. He is the type that will come to you every time from the field or anywhere. I guess that’s the treat hound in him lol.
During the late 1800s and early 1900s, the rural inhabitants of eastern Kentucky considered these saddle horses to be horses for all seasons. They were sure-footed, easy-gaited, and the mount of choice for postmen, doctors, and traveling preachers. People used them for plowing small fields, herding cattle, traveling through the steep and rugged trails, and driving the buggy to church on Sunday. Horses were not a luxury, but a necessity. Every horse had to earn its keep and be extremely versatile. It was not a matter of having horses around to use every once in a while; these horses were worked hard, every day. At the end of the day they were exhausted, but possessed enough stamina to continue on, day after day.

Here's a quick phone vote from Buddy! Tried blogging from the computer but the Internet is being stupid so I will try again tomorrow! I have some new pictures to add from yesterday!

Yesterday we went on a trail ride with Lynn & Theo. Buddy was a perfect gentleman and had no issues with the traffic we came upon or anything! I was so happy. Then today I went to ride him in the back sand ring where we started out yesterday and he was so bad! I went to give him trouble for being "sassy" and he bucked me off! So, I went and got back on after catching him and as soon as I got my feet in the stirrups he runs into Theo and bucks me off again! Needless to say I didn't get back on, but us girls went and found Chris and he rode Buddy for me. Hope to feel better and blog more tomorrow!

I'm still waiting to get his new boots but it looks like I won't have them any earlier then the weekend which isn't horrible because at least it gives me a week to try them out before the show.

i've been busy. rode buttercup for an hour last week and sing for an hour yesterday. doing circles around trees in the pasture and walking over log. princeton is doing so good with his leg that i am leaving the wrap off except for when he's out for his walk. been letting him loose in the small paddock while i sit nearby. he walks around, hasn't done any running around or bucking. no word on my trailer. i called again and he was supposed to call me back but hasn't. i think he's really slow but what can i do but wait? got a feral cat trap and have been feeding the stray cat that i named, jockey. i'm going to trap him and take him to be neutered and get his shots on thurs. he's a beautiful kitty and respectful of my cat, sunni. they haven't been fighting and she lets him come up on the porch. he got cotd today. :)

We're Moving!
Hi there beautiful Sierra! Hope you are doing great and enjoy a blessed Easter!
I just wanted to let you know that I might not be on a lot for the next while for our family is moving.
The house we are renting in Ks has sold and we're moving to Mo! There's sooo much to do! We're packing now, and things are really busy!!! The bad news is that the place we're going to doesn't have acreage so we'll have to board our girls. :( But the good news is that we've found a boarding stable just one mile away! We could walk to it! So they'll diffidently still be apart of our everyday life!
I'll try to be on when I can!

how is her training coming along?
My Whiskey boy has the antics of a comedian! In this picture I feel like he is saying “Sit Mom”. I was brushing him-you can see my boots towards his backend on the other side of him. He is so funny but yet so very gentle and lovable. He is in fact my “treat Hound”. He will do absolutely anything in the world to get a treat, cookie or carrot or anything to eat. If you show him how to do something and he knows you are going to give a treat he will try until he learns it to in fact get that treat. I have had so much fun with him. He will check me for a treat and if I don’t have one he will almost shrug me off with a turned head tossed in the air as if he is saying “I’m done with you, off you go child”
The Rocky Mountain Horse breed originated in the United States in the late 1800s, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky. At the time of its beginnings, there was no understanding of the need to document anything about these horses. The people living in this region were quite unaware that one day their utility horses would become the foundation of a special breed of horse. The existence of these horses was practically a secret for many years to all but the inhabitants of this region.
Have a wonderful evening. I will phone vote tomorrow and pick back up on Wednesday. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hi Sierra! Happy Easter! I had a great couple days with Koot. I rode him Friday night and practiced the barrel pattern. My friend/trainer got on him and fixed his "dead side" and out of nowhere I had a whole new horse lol. It was the fastest most fun barrel pattern I've ever run! Then Saturday I bought Koot some sensitive skin shampoo and conditioner since he's already starting to get itchy and gave him a bath and some wormer and then I took him for a walk to graze while he dried off. I also took my camera and got some nice pictures of him I'll have to post soon. I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Celebrating Easter with love, hugs & votes 4 all!
✞ Picking up from yesterday about him tossing his head about bugs. Sometimes I can make a pony tail in his fore lock and that helps a lot. I think he sees his hair sometimes and over reacts, big ol’ treat hound! As soon as we get under the trees on those trails he just stops tossing his head and settles right back into his awesome self. I will add Rocky Mountain facts to my blogs for the rest of our HOTM run. I hope you enjoy them =)
The history of the Rocky Mountain Horse from 1890 to the latter part of the 1900s carries little or no documentation and few facts that can be proven beyond the shadow of doubt. Everyone who personally witnessed the breed's beginnings (back to the 1800s) is deceased, and we have been left with only verbal history passed down from generation to generation. Thus, all that can be recorded at this point in time are the stories recollected by living descendants. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. The picture today was taken 8/2012. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. We haven’t camped out in nearly 2 years, and that is when I can try to swim with the horses. It’s too hard to try swimming when I day ride because of the drive home (driving wet is no fun) -ha ha =) Deacon is my true water baby-he will actually swim with me and never try to lie down. I have also found that Whiskey hates for any type bug to fly in his face-so needless to say while we ride in the open if there are grass hoppers or butter flies, regular fly’s he tosses his head slightly. It doesn’t bother me now but it used to. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Wow! Everyone got HOTD all at once! Thanks!
Had a great time yesterday do some more in-hand jumping with Tarnation. Today I worked some more with bathing Rocky, because he pretty dirty. Then I went to let him graze and he bucked as we were walking just out of pure energy. So I put him in the round pen and he ran and ran. I couldn't get him to slow down. After awhile I caught him and rode him a bit. Then were roping cows in the biggest arena and he was very interested so we went over and checked it out. Then turned him and Tarnation out. So it was a really good day.

Hi Sierra, oh no sorry to hear about all the snow you got. Hopefully that's it for awhile. Well Mr. Koot is getting the day off today. I always go to my mom's one day a week and that's tonight this week. I've decided to order Koot new sports boots since the velcro is starting to not stick as well and I want to make sure his boots are fitting properly so they protect him especially with his leg being an issue. It's been an expensive month for his needs but what are ya gonna do? You just have to do what's best for your babies! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

go away snow! Warm thoughts coming your way =)
Today Whiskey is bowing on the 1 year anniversary of the West explosion. God bless our beautiful town our motto is “After West, forever forward”. God bless our town and God bless America! I continued to work with him and every now and then I still put the O ring on him and to keep him sharp. I am not all that good with all kinds of bits. I have not mastered the bit world-well, probably not a lot of horse things but I am on my journey and heading that way. I can ride Whiskey & Deacon both with just halters on but have never tired bridle-less yet. Another goal of mine after I finish getting my round pen larger and have a set up where it will work for us. Whiskey & I continued to push forward and of course everyday he got better and better. We were learning each other and I loved every minute of it. Phone votes tomorrow, I will get back to our story on Saturday. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!
