How We Met

I bought Nooks from a big dealer's barn kind of near our house; I was getting a new horse to replace my old pony Lucky, who died. When they brought Chinook out to show us, he was so pretty and handsome... and his name was Lucky! We changed it to Chinook because he comes from a ranch up North. I couldn't ask for a better friend!.

Hey I generally don’t campaign for people to get HOTD but this one is very important to me. A few days ago my best friend Em who has a horse Diego helped to get my horse Cody elected HOTD when I needed the cheering up. It really lifted my spirits and now Cody is starting to get better & we no longer are looking at putting him down. Anyways, back to the focus of this blog, last week Em made the mistake of getting too comfortable with one of the horses at our barn and ran behind him to give him a hug or something and he double barreled her in the gut. She flew 15 ft and landed on her head in the gravel driveway. She had a concussion of course, she bit almost all the way thru her tongue, partially collapsed a lung, and had to have her spleen removed because it wouldn’t stop bleeding and those are just the major things. She has colorful bruises and scrapes, she had a few loose teeth and a broken heart because she cannot ride for at least 8 weeks. The Dr. broke down and sed that she could sit on a horse in 3 weeks but she couldn’t “ride” for 8. So she is a little down right now because she cant do much and misses riding all ready so I thought that it wud be really cool if we could get her horse HOTD to raise her spirits. Please help me surprise her by getting her HOTD. She wont be on until sun & ill make sure that if she wins HOTD that she goes on but I was really hoping for Sunday cuz she will b out of town on Sat. anyways, Im rambling on now but please please vote for her, I know it would mean a lot to her. Her blog # is 24895 all you have to do is delete the last five numbers in the website address bar and put those five in. It only takes a minute & it would mean a ton to both of us. Thanx so much and please pass this on to everyone you blog! Leaving a vote! =]

Come visit me, Cody.

Thank you so much for your comment on Red's profile. I miss him very much, especially now that I have a daughter and need of a good calm kid's horse! Nook seems great, I love roans and Appys so I obviously think he's gorgeous! I wish you all the happiness with him.

Will you do a champion pony a favor? Please vote for Theadore O'Conner, Karen O'Conner's eventing star! The dear pony had to be euthanized May 28 after falling and hurting himself severely. He was short-listed for the Olympics this year and he's won the Team and Individual Gold Medalist from the 2007 Pan American Games and had top six finishes at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event in 2007 and 2008. He was the 2007 USEF/Farnam Horse of the Year. Can we all honor this pony with the power by giving him Horse Of The Day?

Come visit me, Chinook.

Your horse is GORGIOUS! Come and see Guusje, a fantastic, beautiful Fjord stallion who excells at dressage! He and Jolanda are also models! He is one of my FAVORITE horses in the whole wide world! I'd LOVE for him to get Horse of the Day so if you could vote for him I'll return the favor! Also, if you find anything on his profile that seems confusing or you'd like to see changed, please blog me! I am continually searching for more information on this wonderful horse and I will be updating his profile with more pics and information frequently! Thanks so much!

Hi! Thanks for the welcome. Yes, I do have pics, but am having trouble actually getting them onto the sites. My daughter always has to download them for me, but then something happened & we don't know how come their not showing up as their default pic. Oh well, I'll get it eventually.
I love the color of your Appy! I had three Apps several years ago and I think they are the BEST family horse out there. They helped me teach so many lessons to quiet, timid kids and were wonderful lesson horses. Have a wonderful year! ~Deneene
