How We Met

I too, like many, dreamed of owning a horse since I was a young child, begging my parents every Christmas and Birthday for a horse or pony. Because I was horseless, I worked at a few horse farms just to be surrounded by horses and any horse related activities. At the horseless age of 19, I was living on my own with a decent paying job ready to make my dream of of having my very own horse, that 1st horse, a reality! I also happened to be working part time at Lakefork Stock Farms in Walshville, IL cleaning stalls and grooming. There were 2 weanlings offered for sale that were in my budget.I did feel hesitant at first about raising a colt due to my in-experience but I had a knowledgable and experienced friend to give guidence along the way. I took my parents out to see the 2 weanlings and my mother asked which one I wanted. "The shy black Boston". Their was a long pause and many looks exchanged between Mom, Dad and Judy then words that I will never forget came out of my mothers mouth " Get my check book". I nearly fainted and my eyes swelled with overjoyed tears. Boston was just 5 months old when our lives came together. Both of us growing together so much over the past 10 years. Dreams will come true even if it takes 19 years..

I just made a new video starring Pippin. It's called Pippin's Love and the link is above. I thought you might enjoy it. I also have new photos on Prince's and Eddie's pages. I would love for you to check them out. My sister also uploaded a new video of her parrot, Poirot, babbling away. The video is called Poirot's Babbling. I know she would love a visit from you. Have you been watching the Olympics? We have and they're pretty exciting. The opening ceremony was the best ever and we were just awestruck. Well, here's a vote for you and enjoy riding. ttyl

Hey, it's great to hear from you again. I love the new photos of Boston. They're pretty funny. How are all your horses doing? Pippin's doing so well and he's such a smart cookie. I've just taught him to bow and he knows it now. I only just started teaching him last week. I drive him with an open bridle now and he's much happier. My sister and I ride Eddie and Prince once a week and it's so much fun. They had only been driven before we started riding but they are both really good horses and we haven't had any problems saddle breaking them. Well, I hope you're enjoying your weekend and here's a vote for you.

I have just finished cutting and editing a short movie that I made with our dogs doing their tricks. I thought you might enjoy it and I would love for you to go and watch it and leave a comment. They're really cute. The link is above but you have to remove the space from between . and com. Thanks so much, here's a vote and I hope you're having a great weekend.

I'm really sorry about Gibson's mom. That is so sad that people treat their animals so badly. I hope you managed to get rid of the strangles quickly and that it didn't spread. It really sounds as though Gibson's a smart horse and learns quickly. I think it will be great to teach him to pull a cart. I had lots of fun teaching Pippin. He's really good at it now. He'll turn on a dime and back up. He still gets nervous though when there's something loud (like a truck) and he can't see it because of the blinders. I think I want to try him with an open bridle and see how he does. Well, I guess your horses are probably all fuzzy now. Pippin sure is and the cold cannot penetrate his thick fur. Well, I hope you're doing fine and here's a vote for Boston. All black is still my favourite colour.

for stopping by. Don't worry about the time lapse. I have the same problem. Pippin's doing really well with the cart and he hasn't run away again with it. He is very responsive to the bit. And, of course, he still loves bike rides and walks. It was so cute yesterday. I was working outside and didn't have time to take him on a walk but some others were going so I persuaded them to take him. (It takes persuasion because he doesn't always behave himself with them.) Anyway, when they got back Pippin saw me and he broke loose and came running up to me full speed with his lead rope trailing in the wind and his ears pricked up. He is just so adorable. I'm sorry that you've had so much trouble with Gibson. I'm sure you're glad that it's all over. He'll be a great horse. Last week I got to ride a giant Percheron, 18.2hh! It was so amazing to be around a horse that big, let alone ride him. I'm hoping to ride him every so often. It's been such a long time. Well, I hope you're doing fine and here's a vote for Boston.

It's great to hear from you again. I'm sorry that it's taken me so long to reply. It's funny, I was thinking about you the day you wrote. It's strange how those things happen, isn't it? Thanks for coming to Pippin first. I'm glad that you like all his new pictures. I know that you would love him if you could meet him. Yes, I did have a little trouble with him one day with the cart. He's been good since then but I definitely have to work with him. He was really antsy and took off at a gallop through the forest. Not exactly smooth going. My main worry was that the cart would get hooked up on a tree and cause a crash that would spook him for life. He doesn't forget things. Fortunately, he eventually responded to my commands to slow down. I haven't spent a lot of time on slowing down and stopping because he always seemed to have the opposite problem. It takes effort to make him go faster than a walk. But when he has built up enough muscle I don't think he will have any problem. He just gets lazy sometimes. But once he gets going he's fine. (As long as I can stop him.) But he's a good boy and learns fast so I don't think it will be a problem. I'm sorry that Gibson is getting weaned so early. I suppose it will be alright if he's getting supplements, etc. Pippin was weaned at four months which is when we got him. How's Boston doing? Have you had much time to ride? Well, I hope you're having a great weekend and I wish you some rain.

I hope you're getting your rain today. There is a 30% chance that we'll get some tomorrow. But we're not holding our breath. And yes, the hay in our area is just as expensive, if not more. But the farmers aren't having any problems with their cuttings this year. The weather's been perfectly hot and the river from which they pump has provided them with plenty of water. One year they pumped the river dry and, of course, all the fish died. We have water rights issues and wars in our area but they are better about it this year. Well, I left two votes for you because I started to write yesterday and then I never got back to it. I hope all you and all your equines are doing fine. Stay cool!

for stopping by. It's been extremely hot and dry here too. I have to take Pippin out in the evening but even then it's not much cooler. He's doing really well with the cart. And the other day I took him on a short bike ride and he really ran fast. Approximately 19mph for about 2 miles with a high speed of 22mph. I don't know how fast a mini is supposed to run but that seems pretty fast to me. I hope you're able to get some riding in soon. Maybe it will cool down. But it's August, so then again, maybe it won't. Well, here's a vote for Boston. Talk to you later.

for checking out Pippin's video. I'm really glad that you like it. It was a lot of fun to make. I'm sorry that you don't have much time for riding. That's just too bad. But at least you get to be with your horses everyday. It's been too hot to take Pippin out much. I don't want to overheat him. But I take every opportunity that I can. Here's another vote for Boston and take care.
