How We Met

A teacher of mine had a friend he lived across from that needed help with his horses. I had been a long time rider so I naturally accepted. I'm so glad I did too. They were ready to put Ally down due to a freak accident where she had kicked someone, though on accident everyone was still afraid of her. She then became really fearful of people, just as they were really fearful of her.As I started working with her, which I did just by sitting in her pasture for countless number of hours, in the cold snow, I started to gain her trust. In just a few short months she has learned to trust me completely and relies on me for everything. She no longer runs from other people, though she does pin her ears from time to time. But through the trust we built for eachother, she went from un-ridable, to a horse that I ride bareback nearly every day. And I got the gift of a life time by her previous owners giving her to me as a Christmas gift <3 She's come a long way, and I am completely proud of her. I didn't give up on her, so she didn't give up on herself. She's my true friend, my best friend. We have that relationship that they have in the movies, the relationship with a horse that I never thought possible. I love her so much <3.

✞ Deacon is such a sweet gentle soul, he loves kids. When a child is around he lowers his head down with VERY soft eyes and it almost seems as if he tries to make his body small ~it is such a sight to see. Some of you will gasp at this but I don’t lunge Deacon before riding, never have. He has always been such a gentleman. I do lunge him sometimes if I don’t have time to ride and it’s just to have time with him. I sure do hope your weather is better than it has been here. The winds have been terrible 20-30 mph and cold! Happy trails to you and here is a whinny and a click on your horseshoe with love =)

Come visit me, ~Whiskey~ & ♥ Deacon ♥.

Come visit me, ~Whiskey~ & ♥ Deacon ♥.

☃ Merry Christmas eve to all and thank you for your support!
* We can and do look inwards reliving the old times and look forward to the new. I personally feel there’s nothing more wonderful than to think about what brought you together with your friends? And what in particular cemented these friendships? When I asked myself these questions, three words keep popping into my head, loyalty, love and horses. ~Carmel Rowley

Love, hugs & a vote ♡

☆ Deacon and I had a really nice ride at Lake Whitney Saturday. We rode alone. That was the first time in sooo long that I have rode alone& we so enjoyed it. With Christmas upon us this week I know everyone is busy but I would like to ask that you at least leave a silent vote for Deacon if you don’t have time for much other! We thank all of you for this amazing support so far ♡ Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

♥ I am off work this weekend. We pick up Whiskey today at 2pm. His eye needed to be doctored 2 times a day is why he stayed so long. I go to work before the sun comes up so I would have only been able to get it doctored 1 time a day. His final doctoring will be tomorrow. I do plan to ride Deacon at Lake Whitney tomorrow. I am hoping Lizzy will go so Rocket can get rode. I will phone vote everyone Sunday though so please vote each day and silent votes are so welcomed as well! Have a wonderful weekend <)__~

Come visit me, ~Whiskey~ & ♥ Deacon ♥.

☆ As I have mentioned before, I have learned so much with Deacon and of course Whiskey & Rocket. Each horse has brought knowledge to me that has its own value. I think we all carry a special place for that 1st horse that is hard to describe ♥ the 1st year ½ I went trail riding, I experienced penning & cutting cows but my favorite has always been trail riding. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ☆

Come visit me, ~Whiskey~ & ♥ Deacon ♥.

Deacon would love your support for HOTM!
sorry to here of her injury's but yes~we do love them anyway =)
♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.
Here is a hug & a Wednesday vote :)

Allie Update!
Alright guys, its been awhile since I've done an update for Allie, but I figured now is as good of time as any.
Last Saturday, I went out to the barn to walk and groom her (she has been having trouble with her back, so I was told no riding for several weeks) and as I was brushing her, I saw she had a nice big gash down the inside of her cannon bone on her left side. Long story short, we called the vet out to look at her, and she ended up having to be sedated (she was being so ornery, that they had to give her two shots of sedative) and had to get 8 stitches.

Now she isn't even allowed to be hand walked, she has to move as she pleases. So the vet said that she is out of commission for the next two weeks or so. We have to love our ornery ponies anyways don't we? *sighs*

Other than that, she had been doing really well, our liberty work was coming along nicely, she can now walk trot and lope by my side with no lead or halter. I'm one proud mama of my girl :)

Come visit me, Allie <3.
