My Horse Profile

Arabian from Williamsport, PA

DLG Faithful Bask (BJ)

About Me

Active within 301 Days

I am from Williamsport, PA and I've been a Club Horse member for 1 year, 2 months and 1 day

Nicknames: Sometimes we call him Mr.Frizz for fun because his hair is always frizzy

Age: 8 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Arabian

Height: 14.3 hands, just beats being a pony

Color: black with a white star that looks like a bird foot print.

Type of Riding: We do Western Pleasure, halter classes, showmanship and hopefully side saddle someday.

My Horse's Achievements: He has become a very patient and loving horse then he was a couple years ago because we got him from a amish farm where he was living in bad conditions and he was a crazy stallion.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Carrots all the way

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: He likes to run around in the pasture with his buddy named fixation. He loves getting treats and putting his face in his stall fan. I think he feels like a super model.

Pet Peeves: He doesn't like wheels on driving carts and he doesn't like the cows we put out with him in the pasture sometimes.

My Horse's motto: He knows when your feeling sad,
He knows when your feeling happy,
He knows when your nervous,
He knows when you have carrots.

How We Met

I saw a ad in the newspaper that said two black Arabians for sale, so I begged my grandpa and we brought him and his sister home. Now him and I can't be separated..

It has been miserably hot & humid the last few days. Yesterday I gave Cheyenne her first bath. She was nervous at first but then she cocked her hoof and stood still for me. Misty, Sierra & Cherokee got cool rinses also. This morning when it wasn't to hot yet I rode Cherokee. I worked on getting him to slow down at a trot by making him do small circles every time he sped up. Once he would slow down I let him trot in a larger circle. He was good but he still needs more work.

Here is the story of Napoleon and his horse Marengo
In the early 1800's, General Napoleon Bonaparte had not only proven his valor but conquered most of the known world at that time.
As a known animal lover he kept a stable of 80 horses; Napoleon found only 8-10 acceptable for him to ride. He also preferred little Arabs over the more popular Thoroughbreds. His favorite being Marengo, a horse that was all of 14.1 hh. Napoleon's troops captured him during the battle of Abouki in Egypt. Legend has it that Marengo was the mount of choice on all his famous campaigns.
The great commander was not known for great horsemanship. On the contrary, he had a poor seat, shifting around in the saddle so much that he wore holes in his breeches. He was awkward and unsteady on horseback. In spite of this he was a tireless rider- rash and imprudent. Marengo must have been forgiving of this to be compatible with such a rider.
Putting their trust in each other, they survived 15 difficult years of desert sun, winter snows, near starvation, chronic thirst, and battle wounds. That horse must have possessed superior temperament and stamina, for he, at age 19, carried the graceless Napoleon 3,000 miles to Moscow and back. Countless horses died but Marengo prevailed.
The infamous Battle of Waterloo is where the partnership abruptly ends. Napoleon was defeated and Marengo was taken by the British. He was a military marvel and served a legendary leader. The British celebrated Marengo and he was paraded in London, where sightseers thronged by the thousands to admire Napoleons personal charger.
In 1832, Marengo died at the remarkable age of 38. In death as in life, the name Marengo is synonymous with equine valor. As a memorial, the horses skeletal remains reside at the Waterloo Gallery at the National Museum, Chelsea. The world has not forgotten the famous horse and I am sure his companion and leader did not forget him either.

Hi, left a vote. Saw Amber today. Just turned her out in the pasture for a bit. Wasn't feeling up to doing anything else with her today. I parked my truck in a different spot today. She noticed that on the way back to the barn. She stopped about 5 feet from my truck and snorted at it! She just makes me laugh! I told her it was there when we walked by it a bit ago, I don't think she believed me. LOL! So, I walked her in a circle, and got her closer to my truck, repeated this until she decided she would sniff the tail light. Took like 3 minutes. She is so funny! Love her!

Cheyenne has been doing great so far in her training. I discovered that she is scared of a lot of things so I have been working on desensitizing her. The first time I tried to throw a rope over her back she ran in circles around me, now she stands still and lets me toss it all over her. I have gotten her used to a plastic bag and umbrella opening right by her face to. I lunge her for about 5-10 minutes every day. She is getting the hang of it and she is learning what reverse means. She needs some work on walk, trot and whoa though. Its really hot today so she is getting the day of. Yesterday I turned her out with Cherokee and Dakota for the first time. Cherokee chased her a little but now he is leaving her alone.

Todays blog is about Comanche, supposedly the sole survivor of General Custer's 7th Cavalry detachment at the Battle of Little Big Horn.
The horse was bought by the U.S. Army in 1868 in St. Louis, Missouri and sent to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. His ancestry and date of birth were both uncertain. Captain Myles Keogh of the 7th Cavalry liked the 15 -hand bay gelding and bought him for his personal mount, to be ridden only in battle. In 1868, while the army was fighting the Comanche in Kansas, the horse was wounded in the hindquarters by an arrow, but continued to carry Keogh in the fight. He named the horse “Comanche” to honor his bravery. Comanche was wounded many more times, but always exhibited the same toughness.
On June 25, 1876, Captain Keogh rode Comanche at the Battle of the Little Bighorn, led by Lt Col. George Armstrong Custer. The battle was notable as their entire detachment was killed. US soldiers found Comanche, badly wounded, two days after the battle. After being transported to Fort Lincoln, he was slowly nursed back to health. After a lengthy convalescence, Comanche was retired.
Comanche was a veteran, 21 years old, and had been with the 7th Cavalry since its Organization in '66.... He was found by Sergeant [Milton J.] DeLacey in a ravine where he had crawled, there to die and feed the Crows. He was raised up and tenderly cared for. His wounds were serious, but not necessarily fatal if properly looked after...He carries seven scars from as many bullet wounds. There are four back of the foreshoulder, one through a hoof, and one on either hind leg. On the Custer battlefield (actually Fort Abraham Lincoln) three of the balls were extracted from his body and the last one was not taken out until April '77. Comanche died of colic on November 7, 1891, around 29 years old. He is one of only two horses in United States history to be buried with full military honors, the other being Black Jack.

Hi, left a vote. Saw Amber today. Tried the halter on her, it was too small. Darn it, it was really cute on her!!! Found a rope halter in her stall today, it was torn apart! At first I thought she somehow got a hold of one, and chewed it up. But it looked like it had been cut up in several pieces. I think it must have been baled in the hay!

Sorry this blog is so late, I have had a very busy day.
Here is the continued story of Aristides
Fifteen horses were entered into the first Kentucky Derby, two of them fillies. The track was fast, the weather was fine, and ten thousand people were in attendance. Aristides was one of two horses entered by Hal McGrath. The other, of course, was Chesapeake. Both horses wore the green and orange silks of H.P. McGrath. Trained by future Hall of Famer, Ansel Williamson, an African American, Aristides was ridden by Oliver Lewis, also African American. McGrath expected the smaller speedball Aristides to be the "rabbit." He was to go out front fast and force the pace so that Chesapeake, ridden by Bobby Swim (a celebrated jockey, and white), could stalk the front runners, and when they and Aristides tired, would come from behind to vanquish the exhausted field.
Just as McGrath had planned, little Aristides broke in front and took the lead, but a horse called McCreery quickly overtook him near the end of the first quarter. Aristides fought back to lead again, followed by McCreery, Ten Broeck, Volcano, and Verdigris. Chesapeake, meanwhile, was almost the last to break and wasn't doing much at the back of the pack. As the "rabbit," the willing Aristides kept gradually increasing his lead until there was really no chance that Chesapeake could ever catch up. Chesapeake was that kind of horse...and this McGrath did not plan. Aristides's jockey, Oliver Lewis, knowing he wasn't supposed to win, looked to owner McGrath...but McGrath wisely waved him on. Both Volcano and Verdigris challenged Aristides in the stretch but Aristides won by a length and took the $2850 pool. Ten Broeck finished fifth and Chesapeake eighth.
The Louisville Courier-Journal wrote: "It is the gallant Aristides, heir to a mighty name, that strides with sweeping gallop toward victory...and the air trembles and vibrates again with the ringing cheers that followed."

SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING: Horses have been found to be expensive and addictive, and have further been shown to impair the use of common sense in humans!

I found this to be true one week ago today. I was washing my gelding about 9pm when biting insects attacked us. The horse over-reacted by pulling back and realizing he's tied to a post, he freaked out big time! He snapped a wooden post, set 2 ft down in concrete, off at ground level, hitting me in my leg, knocking me down, and continually pulling the fence over-top of me! He wanted to run but I yelled "whoa, whoa, whoa!" He stopped, I detached the "safety" strap that was supposed to release, and put him in the stall.
Next day I went to the doctor because of the severe swelling and the fact I couldn't bend my knee but about 10%. Nothing broken (yay) but MRI revealed a torn MCL (medial collateral ligament) and damage to the patella! I haven't yet seen my Ortho doc (appt. on Tuesday).
The horse knew he hurt me because he wouldn't look at me for two days. I'd love on him but he kept to himself. My husband asked the horse if he was sorry he hurt momma and he shook his head yes. I talked to him and again, he looked away. Saddened my heart.
Be careful everyone! Freak accidents DO happen!!
