Whiskey would love your support for his HOTM run
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!

Wow! Thanks so much for HOTD!
What a suprise! Thank you all for HOTD! Thanks for all your support once again!

Buddy settled in quickly in the outdoor board with all the other horses, even made some friends. One of the girls who worked here at the time had her two horses on outdoor board, and one of them happened to be a baby. Buddy LOVES babies! I didn't want to ride Buddy until he was settled in and used to his surroundings a little more. So instead of riding I would walk him around the property and slowly introduced him to being inside the barn.

He was nervous about being inside the barn at first, but that was expected as he had never been in one before. He did really good, and soon enough he would walk throughout the barn without being too nervous about it all. After about two weeks I decided to tack Buddy up and ride him outside. He doesn'e like to stand still while being tacked up so that was an interesting time.

After he was tacked up I rode him around the back of the barn for about 10 minutes. He was being such a stinker. Didn't want to do anything I asked, just wanted to go and see his friends in the outdoor board. I gave up after ending on a good note and put Buddy back. It was probably a month later, in the middle of November that I decided I was going to move Buddy to indoor board so it would be easier to work with him, and easier to catch him! More tomorrow…

Today was great! I was so surprised to see Pippin in the spotlight. I didn't realize it had been a year since he last won. For those of you who asked, this is his 9th win. Yes, it's true! We've been on the HC since 2007 and back in the first year HOTD was not limited to once a year. So, we won it 3x in 2007. Cool, huh?

Thanks so much for your congratulations. Pippin is a great little horse and I love him.

I am running Eddie for horse of the month this month and would love if you would stop by daily with a vote for his page. Here's his blog for today. I've posted each of his daily blogs on his page. Stop by and check them out.

I wanted to take both Eddie and Pippin out but it seemed that no one else (human) was coming with me. I didn't really feel up to ponying one from the cart since I do it by driving with one hand and holding the other horse with other. And I felt kind of tired which wasn't a good way to start something like that.

So, I had a brilliant brain wave. Why not drive them together? I've been pondering this for awhile but have never got around to figuring out how it might work.

Today was the day to do something about it and stop my pondering! :) I put half of Pippin's harness on him and his halter. I attached his halter by a lead rope to the front of the right shaft. I attached his harness to the ring on the back of the right shaft.

So far so good. One of my friends finally showed up so she hopped in the cart too.

We started out at a walk. Pippin was terrified. The back rope was a bit tight so after a few steps I halted and jumped out to rearrange him and give him a bit more rope.

Pippin and I have this understanding. If I say "calm" or "it's okay" he believes me. As I loosened the rope I told him that and he calmed down.

After climbing back into the cart I clicked and we went a few more steps. By that time Pippin was no longer afraid but ready to go.

The drive was amazing. The day was sunny but not as hot as it has been. We went about 6 miles and the boys seemed to love each other's close company. Now that I know it works so well I'm going to think up a better way to do it.

I thought I'd use reins for Pippin but it's unnecessary. He was paying very close attention to my every word. When I told Eddie to trot Pippin was already trotting to ensure he'd keep up. When I said "Whoa" Pippin was ready to stop as soon as Eddie had. They are such a cute pair!

I wanted to film a little bit of their first drive as a team but my camera battery was almost dead. I got a few seconds which I uploaded to YouTube.

Here's the link! I hope you enjoying coming along for the ride!
