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!!!!!

Whiskey says Thank You for your support!
Doc said if Whiskey showed any signs of discomfort at that time to call right away. He is only allowed coastal hay and his feed for now. I started turn out Sunday 4/27and increase 10 min. intervals every couple of days. Now, here is what happened. We have been doing slow turn out for a while (over 8 weeks) and we left them out Wednesday night 4/09. Coleton (my son) had brought us some hay that we haven't fed before. It was pretty green but didn't think much about it. Doc says it is the combination of that hay and turned out that did this-but mainly that hay bale. The other horses are fine and Doc said because he is such an easy keeper/age that he just gorged himself...now all I can do is ask for prayers for my baby and a lot of positive thoughts. He is really doing so well from what I can see ♥ Today I give the last dose of bute and the next few days will really let me know how he is.
Even through the hard times of the Depression and World War II years, Sam Tuttle kept a sizable herd of thirty to forty horses on his farm. Sam is considered as the man most responsible for the survival of the Rocky Mountain Horse. TOBE was the primary Rocky Mountain stallion used in Sam's breeding program. In the 1950s, many people were selling their stallions, and the horse population in general was rapidly declining due to tractors and farm machinery available. Even so, breeders remembered TOBE, and he was always in demand for stud service. People brought their mares to TOBE from several different states, and he was as famous in Estill County as MAN O' WAR was in Lexington, Kentucky. Everyone who rode TOBE fell in love with him. TOBE's offspring were always in demand, and Sam never had any trouble selling all the Rocky Mountain Horses he could produce.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Cliff & I woke early Saturday to check on him and of course Cliff kept assuring me that I needed to go ride (the day I met and rode with Cheryl & Cisco) and he and Doc would take the best of care of my Whiskey boy. I wanted to call several times as we rode but needed to wait until we stopped for lunch so if I were to break down we would be off the horses and settled for a while. I called and yes he had foundered. Xrays showed that it is not as bad as I thought thank god! Doc says he feels very positive that he will be ok. The back legs are fine. They put wedge shoes on his front hoofs and I have been giving bute 2x's until 4/22, I backed down to 1 x a day Doc Edwards said when we back off to 1x a day that will be when we know for sure if he is ok and as of 4/28 he is doing fine and walking normal, ACTING LIKE MY Whiskey Boy! still keeping a watchful eye out for anything abnormal. Praying for a full recovery ✞
Sam Tuttle was the most prominent breeder of Rocky Mountain Horses for the first three quarters of the twentieth century. With the advent of better roads and means of travel, the population of gaited horses in the United States began to decline. The exception was the less developed area of the Appalachian Mountains. Gaited horses were still needed for travel where there were no roads, and therefore they were preserved in that area.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

weekend phone votes ♡
When I got home from work Friday (4/11/14-2 weeks ago) I noticed Whiskey was walking slow and didn't seem right. He has NEVER been sore after a trim but I thought this could be a first time...Brent (my farrier) had been out that morning and put shoes on Deacon and trimmed the other 2. As I watched I knew something was wrong and put a call into Doc Edwards (he specializes in horses only). I then gave Whiskey bute because he then kept laying down and I could tell he was in pain. I watched him drink water, I saw him pea & poop, I listened for guts sounds in his tummy so I knew he wasn't colicing. Doc finally called he wanted Whiskey in early Saturday morning 4/12/14. He assured me that giving the bute was fine and it was the right thing to do. He also knew how upset I was and again assured me that I had caught this in time but couldn't tell me anything until he saw him the next morning. Yes, founder is what it is…..Phone votes over the weekend, his story will continue Monday 4/28…..
The Rocky Mountain Horse Association's (RMHA) rendition of the history of the breed states there was a gaited colt brought from the Rocky Mountain region of the United States to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in eastern Kentucky around 1890. He was referred to as "the Rocky Mountain Horse" by the local Kentucky people because of the area of the country from which he had come. He is the horse credited for the start of the Rocky Mountain Horse breed. Little is known about this foundation stallion, but oral history indicated he was chocolate-colored with flaxen mane and tail, and he possessed a superior gait. The stallion was bred to the local Appalachian saddle mares in a relatively small geographical area and the basic characteristics of a strong genetic line continued. This prized line of horses increased in numbers as years went by, and these are the horses known today as Rocky Mountain Horses.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!
