How We Met

I had a 20 yr old Tennessee walker that did not like to run, and she tripped a lot going around the barrels. So I found Darby and we made a trade. Before the owner before me he was a rescue.

Hi Darby, I hope you are having a great week. I finally got to see Koot last night after not seeing him for 6 days. It felt sooo good :) I got in a great ride with him and we did a little barrel and poles practice and Koot did great! He was happy to be back at the barrels lol. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Darby, here's a vote for ya. Another storm moved through again last night, power out and dish TV this time. Very heavy rain for only 30 minutes, but it was like 1 inch in the rain gauge. Indoor was fine this morning. Got my first ride in on Paige in almost a week thanks to the weather and flooding of my indoor and her pulling a shoe. She was awesome! Had so much lift and suspension to her lope, got that hock deep up under her, the rest did her good I think! And it sure was nice in there with no bug to bite us and the fans going full blast to keep it cool! They got out this afternoon, tons of fly spray on them. Just ordered a fly sheet for Paige, now she'll have her own. Indy has one all ready. And guess what, another storm coming across for tonight! Three nights in a row! UGH! Marion and the blondes.

CHARLIE KEEPS SHOES....
Good Morning, well the visit from the nutritionist was interesting to say the least...the good news is, I'm doing everything right as far as feed for Charlie. The bad news is, in order to go barefoot, here is what Marc does with his TB's, and before I try to explain this, keep in mind that this is a L O N G process, it won't happy overnight. He basically forces the hoof to become strong by OVER stimulation and corrective trimming, meaning, he lets them chip, he let's them bruise and even abscess if necessary, the over stimulation comes from the rigorous training, the pounding, the running, not just lolly gagging around the pasture. I know it sounds like cruel and unusual punishment, but it works for his racehorses. People at the track are always asking him "what is your secret? how can your horses run barefoot?" He said this is not for everyone, you must be committed to the work, and be prepared for the set backs, but when you get there you have a STRONG hoof. After a lot of thought, I realize, this is not for Charlie, he is not a working racehorse anymore, he is my pal, and it will be shoes for him. Have a great day, we left votes, Love Donna Lee

I am gonna tell you an insprinational Quarter horse story. By: Malee Powell Off of (American Quarter Horse Daily)

Let's take the story of "Dave" my perfect handsome Quarter horse with a not so perfect past, which involves (equine polysaccharide storage myopathy) My journey with Dave began about seven years ago. I was like any young horsey competitor. I wanted nothing more than to compete in barrels and win. Before Dave i was working with a couple of horses who were on trackto make my dreams come true. But what can i say? Matters of the heart know no logic. As soon as i laid eyes on that crazy eyed sorrel gelding with a stuck gas pedal & always caffeinated personality a 30 foot fence topped with barbed wire couldn't have kept me from him

Quick vote and I am off to begin my day. I plan to rest. LOL This holiday really wore me out. My family came to our house. My 7 year old nephew rode Trigger and I wanted to ride Fancy, but I am not quite ready, so I did not.
Trigger is still with us. I have had lots of interest in him. I had one family come to look at him but I discovered they wanted him for a lady to ride. I hope someone will want him for a child to ride. I am kind of partial to him going to a home with a child.

Hope you had an awesome 4th celebration.

Love Fancy & Frances

RIDE OR COOK?...DAH!
Day 2 of my vacation. I only have one week right now and I booked another week in Sept. I am entitled to 4 weeks, however after being off work for 7 months, I have only got enough money in my vacation "pot" for 2 weeks, boo hoo. We had showers and tstorms off and on yesterday, but it cleared around 5PM, so at 6PM I headed to the barn just as David said, "are you cooking?" I said "ride or cook?" sounds like a no brainer to me....have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Quarter horses come in nearly all colors. The most common color is sorrel, a brownish red, part of the color group called chestnut by most other breed registries. Other reconized colors include bay,black,brown,buckskin,palomino,gray,dun,red dun,grullo (also occasionally refered to as blue dun.) red roan,blue roan,perlino,cremello & white. In the past spotted color patterns were excluded,but now with the advent of DNA testing to verify parentage, the registry accepts all colors as lond as both parents are registered.

It was so humid here, Monday. I cleaned Sadie's water trough, filled it and then wet her down to cool her off. It rained twice. A total of about 5 minutes in all. Would love to live somewhere where it actually rains. Greenery would be a wonderful bonus. Sadie would love a pasture filled with green grass. Love and a vote.

☆ We had a really nice 3 day weekend. I did not haul to the lake, I rode at home. I took Deacon Friday and Saturday for an early morning ride, around 30 minutes, I then took Whiskey for a 30 minute ride as well. Of course they were sprayed down with the water rake and had spa time. I also gave Rocket a good spraying and they all had their fly masks put on. The flies have been a problem. We BBQ’d ribs and chicken Friday for our celebration of the 4th of July. Cliff and I went Saturday after I was finished with the horses on our monthly feed and grocery shopping trip. We had him another pair of glasses made and ate lunch at Red lobster. We both had the grilled shrimp Caesar salad it was yummy! Have a wonderful day! Whinnies, love & hugs ☆

Horses shown in-hand in halter competition are larger yet, with a very heavily muscled appearance, while retaining small heads with wide jaws & refined muscles.There is controversy among owners,breeders & veterinarians reguarding the health effects of the extreme muscle mass that is currently fashionable in the specialized halter horse. Which typically is 15.2 to 16 hands & weighs 1,200 lbs. (540 kg) When fitted for halter competition. Not only are there concerns about the weight to frame ratio on the horses skeletal system, but the massive build is also linked to HYPP.

There are two main body types: The stock type & hunter or racing type. The stock type is shorter,more compact, stocky & well muscled, yet agile. The racing type & hunter type Quarter horses are somewhat taller & smoother muscled than the stock type, more closely resembling the Thoroughbred.

I made a collage of Darby for the COA, I was wondering if you have more pics of him you could email me so I could make a couple more. My email is mariaedmonson98@gmail.com.

The modern Quarter Horse has a small,refined head with a straight profile. And a strong well-muscled body. Featuring a broad chest & powerful round hindquarters. They usally grow between 14 to 16 hands. Although some halter type & english hunter type horses may grow as tall as 17 hands.

HI, left a vote. Went out and rode Amber today. I worked her a bit in the round pen then we walked down to the arena. Worked her a bit in the arena, then got on and rode for a few minutes in the arena before heading out. As soon as we got out of the arena we came upon a hose stretched out in front of us, (see pic below), she had to step over it to get to the arena, which she did without hesitation. However, now I am on her, she walks up to it, spins around and starts to walk off! LOL! I stop her, turn her back towards it, walk her up to it, stop her, tell her she just has to step over it, give her, her head, and she steps over it. Silly girl. Anyway, we walked in the field to the right of the long driveway, all the way down to the road, I turn her around, take the field all the way up and around the arena and to Brook's house. Got up to the top of the hill, we stopped, I let her have a snack, then back to the barn we go. She did great! So calm, and relaxed the whole time, well, expect for the scary hose! LOL!!! I may not be on tomorrow, so just in case I am not
Happy 4th of July everyone! Please be safe and enjoy!

Come visit me, Toby & Amber.
