How We Met

He was a horse i had grown up with at the stable i used to board at. I had been offered him for free back in February but we didnt have the space for him so he was given away to a different home- he went to five or six different homes in about a 4 month period where he was kept outside with no water and only fed a round bail of hay which he couldnt eat because he doesnt have many teeth. The poor guy was withering away when a different guy saw him in the pasture and picked him up. He then got my number from some people who knew i wanted him and called me and told me i could have him and the situation. We had room at our barn then so we said YES YES! and took him. He was about 500 lbs underweight when we got him and we're still working on his weight-.

We put Elmo to sleep on March 15th at 4:15 P.M. He told me it was his time. He kept on fighting even though he started to go into liver failure because he couldn't get up anymore. He went peacefully though, surrounded by everyone who loved him. I probably won't get on here for awhile.

I love Belgain
My issue with Tigger when I got him he was over weight and lack of excerise. He getting fit and trim and spoiled as all get out. My trainer and I think he was abused before by the way he reacts to a lunge whip. We don't know how the amish treat their horses, but what I hear about their puppy mills, he may have been mistreated. He always wanted attention and now he gets it. He gets depress some times when I don't make it to see him. He boards 45 minutes from my home. Sunny boy just turned 9 mths on the 15th. He is such a love bug and love to kiss you. Here a vote for all you babies.

I feel good
I was talking to my trainer and told her about Elmo. My belgian is 18 years old and he is great. She said she was happy to hear about the age of Elmo and that I do have some good years left with mine. Tigger use to plow for the Amish people and was sold at a auction. A woman in Pa bought him and she stopped riding and my trainer needed a big horse for big people to ride. So they got him. Well the trail riding died down and she wanted to sell him as he was not earning his keep. I would not let him go so I bought him 2 days before christmas in 2006. He is the love of my life and he knows it. He has been getting fit and trimmed and training in dressage. He going to show this year. He is not happy he just moans and groans the whole time. He cracks me up. But I love him so much. Here is a vote.

PLEASE HELP THIS MILITARY FAMILY DOG GET DOTM
My name is Stormy #21471. My Dad is in the military and we are stationed here in Oregon. I’m running for dog of the month. I’m a very active Shih Tzu girl. I love to meet and greet new pals here on the DC HC and CC. I also have opened two other pages since I joined the Dog Channel. The first of the two is THE BARKERY. I opened this recipe page when the pet food recall started. I wanted healthy food and treats for all dogs on the dog channel. It was the first featured profile in the DC news letter. The second page is very near to my heart. It’s the SERVICE DOG PAGE. This page is to honor all types of service dogs. They need all the recognition they deserve for helping people. My friend Brie and her mom are advisors to that page. So please help me become Dog Of The Month. Thank you so much. I’m leaving you a vote for your time……Stormy #21471 Vote DOTM

Good on ya!
It makes me very happy to hear about people who can help these poor animals and actually do it! If I had the resources I'd have done the same.

Oh an about Pretzel, be very careful when you wish for a demon pony... be VERY careful :P My Filly completely detests him. There's only one horse at the barn who tolerates Pretzel.
