How We Met

Joey is a 14.3hh Navaho Pony weighing in around 900lbs. He turned 47 this year. His white spots are only due to his age. Joey was one of the first rescue’s at DreamCatchers Equine rescue. He came to DCER in December of 2007.


Joey’s last owner acquired him at age 22. She sent him to Flying AH Horse Rescue at age 40 to retire in the summer of 2007. It’s unfortunate but they neglected him and he was seized by DreamCatchers Equine Rescue. He had been eating dog food off the back porch at Flying AH to survive. He was thin, his feet were overgrown, and he only had 3 teeth.


DreamCatchers put him on a mash diet immediately which he still eats and thrives on today. He gets his hooves trimmed three times a year because ‘that is how he likes it’. He is very relatable to a grumpy old man in an old folks home with his ‘I don’t want to’ attitude. Joey ‘rules’ the old fart barn with an iron squeal and tossing of his butt from side to side (he cannot buck or kick).


He loves his belly scratched. He is the third one to be let out of his stall daily and you must scratch his belly or he won’t let you get back to work letting the others out. He is also the last one to go into his stall at night and you better have his food in there!!


In late Dec 2010, early Jan 2011 there was a virus going around the rescue that killed two other horses. Joey got it too. He stopped eating but kept drinking as if he just knew how to heal himself and survive. He was tube fed day in and day out. Joey never lays down so when he did, the thought that this was the end was inevitable. Everyone said their goodbyes to this amazing horse that night and made him as comfortable as they could. The very next morning, he was all better!! He had to be lifted back to his feet with a tractor but he was fine!!


If we could capture the way Julie’s face lights up when she talks about Joey it would bring tears to your eyes. She always says she would love to know what he’s seen in his lifetime.

Good morning
We thank you and let a vote. I am very glad to hear you are in your late 40's because few days ago I read at TheHorse.com about other horse that is 48 years old in Pennsylvania, and about other horse that is in 50 's. I know was a horse that he was 62 when passed away ( Old Bill ) .

Here's a vote from Buddy! Sorry we didn't make it on last night, was so tired after visiting with my mum for a few hours. The weather here has turned nice and the snow is melting. It's nice, but the barn is also "springing leaks." Water is coming in from the doors of the barn so my boss built some "dams" around the doors today.

The dressage schooling show is this weekend, it started today and has gone pretty well so far. I'm excited to see how the boarders from the barn do! Thanks for all the kind words on Buddys new profile picture! I enjoy it!

I may possibly be gone March 18-21st to go and meet my little niece, and I hope to still be able to blog, if I cannot, I will phone vote. Hope everyone is having a horsey filled weekend and some nicer weather.

Hi Joey, here's a vote for ya. Today I did a friend a favor and rode with her as co-pilot to the vet clinic to have her 14 year old QH mare's hocks looked at. We were gone for like 5 hours, so I missed Paige's training sesson. But Marissa said she was even better today than yesterday. So I guess this last adjustment really did the trick. Any how, MAMA had x-rays done after all the flexion tests and there's a little arthritis going on, but not bad for being a reiner for like 7 years of her life. And she has the start of a Jack Spavin, that's where he feels most of the pain was coming from. So then they scrubbed her up for like 20 minutes to do the hock injections. Then we had to wait about 45 minutes for the sedative to wear off, we went for a quick lunch. Got back to Marissa's about 4 pm or so. But the time I got home, it was a flake of hay for my boys, I was tired from doing nothing. LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

Here's a vote from Buddy! Well today started off super good and ended the same way. My sister had her baby this morning shortly after midnight! I'm so excited and now I have to plan to make my way up to my hometown to visit her and meet my neice!

Work was pretty good today and the weather warmed up to where it wasnt too cold outside, wasn't all that warm and now it seems to be snowing a little bit but as long as it doesn't stay I'm fine with that. Lynn and I rode after work today, I rode Theo and she rode Buddy for me. It was quite interesting as inside the arena the dressage ring is set up for the show on the weekend. Buddy didn't freak out at it at all! Until Lynn went to ask him to move forward when she got on him, he tried to rear on her and so she suprised him when she smacked him and he decided to buck and she fell off! Thankfully she wasn't hurt, and she decided to lunge Buddy after that for a bit before she got back on.

He ended on a good note and we plan on riding again on Monday when the dressage ring should be taken out of the arena, and hopefully things will go better. Hope everyone is having a good week so far.

A click on your horseshoe!
Sorry for not getting on and voting last night, one of my aunties was in town and I went out for supper with her and didn't get home till waaaay past my bed time!

The weather has been really crappy cold lately, and today was the same. The horses stayed inside until about 11 this morning when the barn owner asked us if we could put some of the horses that are in pens outside, and the ones that will be a little loopy for the girls tomorrow, so we did, and they were very happy, and crazy! Buddy stayed inside and has been really good lately. The other day one of the boarders who occasionally covers a shift for us girls was trying to put Buddy's blanket on and Buddy had a meltdown and ended up grazing Harry's elbow and side with his back leg. Him & Harry are currently getting along, but at the time Buddy for some reason didn't like Harry!

I haven't put any DermaGel on Buddy's knee lately, and I should really go and do that tonight, his knee is pretty well all healed up and now I'm just putting it on there so the hair will grow back the same colour as his coat instead of possibly growing in white. Tomorrow I may ride Buddy, we will see how I'm feeling after I ride Lynn's horse Theo for her, she's got a wicked chest cold so I volunteered myself to ride T, even tho I'm starting to feel sick myself. Hope everyone is staying warm and had a horsey filled weekend!

<)__~ For us here in Central Texas it is COLD!!!!! We are 19 but feels 3, icy roads and the whole 9 yards… it won’t last long thank goodness. I did get a ride in on Deacon Friday after work. My trail ride Saturday with Whiskey was so beautiful and warm, nearly 80 and a lot of sunshine. The people that we knew came with a large group like 15 + so we rode by ourselves, we did see many others we knew but again they were all in large groups. Safety for me (I know that’s everyone’s 1st thought-I have other reasons why I have to be so very careful). Some of you know why, some will have to wait until next month when I run Whiskey for May HOTM to learn the rest of my story….Loping by with a tap on your horseshoe, hugs & love to you all!

Hi, Joey! Very cold for us this AM, 10F and windy. Meg was so glad to see me with warm water this AM, she wanted that before her feed. Hauled out 20 gallons for her, that should hold her until it warms up this afternoon into the 30's. Cheryl & Cisco

I love this so much, I had to share.................
When I Am An Old Horsewoman
I shall wear turquoise and diamonds,
And a straw hat that doesn’t suit me
And I shall spend my social security on
white wine and carrots,
And sit in my alleyway of my barn
And listen to my horses breathe.

I will sneak out in the middle of a summer night
And ride the old bay gelding,
Across the moonstruck meadow
If my old bones will allow
And when people come to call, I will smile and nod
As I walk past the gardens to the barn
and show instead the flowers growing
inside stalls fresh-lined with straw.

I will shovel and sweat and wear hay in my hair
as if it were a jewel
And I will be an embarrassment to ALL
Who will not yet have found the peace in being free
to have a horse as a best friend
A friend who waits at midnight hour
With muzzle and nicker and patient eyes
For the kind of woman I will be
When I am old.

It warmed up to a lovely -51* Celsius today. Did some showmanship to get the horses stretched out. When it warmed up around noon I took everyone's blankets off and let them out for a nice roll. They're all starting to shed, so that could mean two things; spring is coming, or they're just really confused about the weather! Lol, left a vote. :)

Hi Joey, here's a vote for ya. Please drop on by and support Paige in her quest for HOTD for April! Well they have changed our forecast from the 8 to 12 inches to now staying south of us and maybe just 2 to 4 inches if that! Yippy! Went to ice Paige's leg and hand walk her. She's feeling good, she was a little full of herself when hand walking her. Leg is down about 20% from yesterday! Yippy again! Got home and got Indy and Bullseye into the indoor for more playtime. Then I dragged the indoor, it hasn't been done in a while. All nice and fluffy again. Hopeing to lunge Indy tomorrow. Maybe do some showmanship with him too! Love ya, Marion and the blondies.
