Hooves crossed for Whiskey to be ~ May HOTM ♡
<)___~ Whiskey will return to the Doc on May 20th for his next set of x-ray’s. I feel he will be just fine, last dose of bute yesterday and I think in 2 days will tell a lot of how he is but I can’t know for sure until the next visit. I want to thank you all for all the amazing support throughout the month of April. I hope you enjoyed his story and I surely hope I can tell you many more story’s in the future of he & I riding together…God bless you all…..I honestly did not realize how difficult and demanding running for HOTM could be until now! Not having a computer at home really made this challenging for me, so again I cannot say thanks enough, sending love to you & your herds!!!!!!!
Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed! In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.
TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it! Hoping to see him as the top horse tomorrow!!!!!

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!

Monday we left off about Whiskey’s color and me with 5 hundred questions for Karla! Here we go…That poor girl had never met me before and I could not shut up :) I then walked over and looked Whiskey right in the eye and he looked back into mine and my heart sunk. His beauty was striking and the color was outstanding. He had a smart, sharpness about him-I’m sure he was thinking “what in the world is she doing”. The ride finally got underway; usually everyone has me ride out front and calls me the trail boss! Deacon is a faster walking horse but can ride in the middle or behind after the first hour or so. Well, here comes Rio & Whiskey with their smooth selves!!! They just gaited their smooth self’s right past me & Deacy. I watched Whiskey and noticed he didn’t quite move the same as Rio but still a difference from a QH. 2 hours into the ride we decided to rest a few minutes in a place we call “Carol’s lounge”. We have names for all our spots we ride to rest or to take a break out there because it’s so big. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Whiskey would love your support for his HOTM run
In 2008 the decision was made after a talk with our boy’s and Cliff. It was time for me to get back on my horse journey. I purchased Deacon in March 23, 2008 and then bought Whiskey in May 2010. When I run Deacon I will tell more about the 1st 2 years back on my journey. Now that you have some back ground on me and my journey I will start Whiskey’s story with me. As many of you know I trail ride and use to camp with the horses all the time, now we just day ride. Hoping this spring sometime to camp again-fingers crossed =) It has been 2 years sense we have camped out with them. We would camp at Mccown or Plowman Valley at Lake Whitney Texas or at Reynolds Creek Lake Waco, Texas. During those times I have met a lot of people and their different type of horses. On one Oct. weekend we had some friends of Bill’s that was coming that I had never met. I asked Bill as we all were getting our horses ready for our ride that day, what type horses did these friends have? He said Rocky Mountain horses…I said hummmm, never heard of that breed. The thoughts in my head about this breed had me so curious. Now tomorrow we are into his story fully….hang in there! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Early year’s cont. My brother-n-law took Tawny for me and kept her until she passed away in 2002. 2 years after the kick in the back I was brave enough to buy this smaller paint- Welsh mix. She was a beautiful tri-colored paint her name was Kallie. She was gentle and slower moving. She was fat of course ha ha. I didn’t have everything I needed (trailer, truck and knowledge). I had the property and a neighbor that would help me out. She had a quarter horse & we would ride the country side all around our properties. I had hoped to do more and learn more with horses but I was young and full of myself! Anyway, I then met someone and started dating and from there I got out of horses. That was about April 1991 when I sold Kallie. Then came along the start of my family in Nov 1992! The rest of our story will be of this last 7 years that I have had Deacon, Whiskey & Rocket (Rocket is Cliff’s horse). Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Congratulation’s Queen Paige “Nuttin But Good” our April HOTM! Here we go with our campaign with Whiskey 237221 to be May 2014 HOTM! I need everyone’s support so vote on his page daily please!!! Every other weekend I am not around a computer so I will phone vote as many as possible, also 1 x a week that I will phone vote :) I will start my story with why I have and will ONLY have such well trained and gentle geldings, then I will start how Whiskey & I became each other’s very best friends along with some Rocky Mountain facts about the breed ♡ * Rocky Mountain Horses are slow to mature and do not reach their full size and weight until about five to six years of age. Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hi!
Leaving Matt a good morning vote!

I rode both the horses last night(Rose and Spangle) They both were good. I rode Rose bareback. When we were at a walk, I could control her with no rein! That is hard because she almost always wants to go fast:)

I have recently found out Rose does not know how to lunge. I am working with her on it. She is starting to get the hang of it! We are only walking and trotting, but with more work will be loping. :) A little while ago I tried lunging her in the round pen without the lunge line and I ended up walking/jogging around the round pen without touching her and having her follow me! :)

Please vote for Rose in the costume contest! Thanks!
We were/are taking lessons at my Instructor’s barn. We were/are competing at play-days (Six speed events). We started increasing are speed at the play-days. Then all Rose wanted to do was run full out all the time. We changed bits and started again slow (3 months ago). We are now increasing speed again (2 month ago). :) We have taken Rose to one barrel race, before we changed bits. It went okay. We just are not quite ready for those high level events. :)

Hi!
Leaving Matt a quick vote!

More of Rose's Story:
We brought Rose to my Instructor’s barn, which is also a boarding barn. She was there 10 months. When we got Rose she was standoffish, hated fly-spray, and hated having her ears touched. We took riding lessons and worked on stuff by ourselves. Now she enjoys attention, stands still for fly-spray without being tied up, and you can play with her ears! In fact, you can put socks on them!(We did that for our costume)

Hi!
Pretty horse! Vote 140!

Rose and I had a fun day at the play-day (6 speed events). We did OK in the first event and got a no time in poles (2nd event) :( We then did well in the next two the next two events. Then in the last two events (Straights and Cloverleaf Barrels) we got our personal best! Also we got a 2nd place in Straights and a 1st in Barrels! That is Rose’s second 1st and her first placing higher than a 3rd in Barrels! Then at the end of day there is an overall or high point award. We tied for 3rd! Rose and I have been 4th every play-day this year, making this her first trophy! I added a picture of our costume and a picture from the play-day to my page. Please vote for Rose in the costume contest! Thanks!

My Halloween costume turned out great! Rose and I were H-E-Buddy (A Texas grocery store’s mascot) and Max (his friend dog). I was H-E-Buddy and Rose was Max. She looked so sad in her “ears”!

I like his markings! Voted!

We went to go look at Rose. I test rode her and loved her. She was sweet; a little stand-offish, but sweet. We went home and talked about it. We decided to get Rose.
How Rose got her name: So her name was Jill (The trainer’s name). The previous owner liked the trainer so much she named Rose after her. We didn’t like the name Jill for horse and it didn’t fit Rose. We talked about it and decided on the name Rose, because of her coloring. We now know it fits her personality. Something really funny, is that Rose is the previous owner’s name!

More of Rose's story:
My Instructor started looking for horses for me. We saw three geldings before Rose. One of the places was the trainer’s that had trained Rose. She talked to my Instructor after I rode her horse (And decided against him) and said that Rose was for sale and that we should go look at her. We didn’t want a mare, but my Instructor persuaded us to go look at her. To be continued...

For my blogs I will tell you the story of how I met Rose. There will be a few days of no blogs, but votes for all and a few blogs of what is happening now/recently.

The Story of how I met Rose:
One day my parents came to me before/during dinner and said “We have to talk to you.” I stopped eating and stared at them. They said “Keep eating. This is not how we planned on telling you, but someone is coming over in 10 minutes. We are going to buy you a horse. We are going to buy property to have the horse on. Now finish your food and we are going to go look at the property.” That house is the house we bought and now have Rose and Spangle on. :)

♥♡♥ First of all Hello my dear HC friends ~ I missed you! On my weekends off I vote HOTD & HOTM. Sometimes if weather is bad & I can’t have horsey time I try to phone vote for as many as possible. I could not get on at all yesterday. I tried off & on all day and even right before I went to bed….

Friday after work I loaded up Deacon & Rocket and headed out to Lake Whitney. Bill road Rocket for Cliff, Cliff stayed at camp with a few friends that were camping. I road with 3 other friends and had such a nice ride on Deacon. There are no words to explain how comfortable and smooth my Deacon is, Love that horse!! I rode Whiskey at the house Saturday morning then Cliff and I put out 50 lbs of perennial rye grass seed before the rain hit. The rain made it just as we finished up the fields. It rained until late Sunday morning so no horsey time. Just feeding time which I love!! I have a busy week so have a wonderful day and keep in touch :) ♥♡♥

✞ After I got home from work yesterday I haltered the boys and curry combed each one and fly sprayed them. Guess with the rain you have to expect fly’s right… to wet to ride but the temps stayed around 82 so it was nice watching them graze. Wish it would stay like that year around.
