How We Met

I was just looking through our area sales paper and came across an add for a real pretty two year old palomino gelding. I wasn't really looking for a horse but for some reason I was compelled to go look at him. I kind of wanted a larger riding horse, one I could do cutting and reining on. Also I figured my mare could use a pasture buddy. So when I looked at him he was handsome looking and about the size of my mare so I figured he'd grow a few more inches at least(he grew about 6 more). I was petting him and he stopped eating to get the pets then he gave me a big horsey hug. Well, lets just say I fell in love with the striking blonde and bought him. The guy told me his name was Turnip and I got a puzzled look on my face and he explained that he got the horse from a neighbor that decided to switch to 4-wheelers. He said they bought the mare and didn't know she was in foal. So one day he just turned up in the pasture so hence his name. The story was a lot like my mare and I's. I knew it was meant to be. I thought the name was unique so I kept it. I love his personality, He's a real people horse..

Hi Turnip
Love the story of your name. It's great. My name is Shybang (pronounced Shabang) and I invite you to come visit me at my webpage. I am new to Horsechannel so just blogging around making new friends. I read that your human likes to do cutting and reining. I've had over a year of reining training so I know all the moves too. I especially like trying to control a calf. I will chase one around on my own when given the chance but I like to bite at them so my mom has to supervise me. We do cow stuff just for fun - It is an expensive sport and since I've already had so much reining training, my mom is not in a position to send me to yet another trainer so we just play with the cows. My mom also just had a book published called Shabang's Story and I am the main horse character. My picture is on the cover. She's received alot of good comments from readers. If you like to read you should check it out at or It is a fiction novel and not a real long one so it is an easy read. Let us know what you think if you read it and tell your friends if you like it. We are trying to get a Readers Choice award from the publisher. Has your mom started working you on reining yet? Do you like it? Keep in touch, Love Shybang

Come visit me, Shybang.
