How We Met

Dolly was my first riding horse ever! She is truly a dream come true for me, my brothers and my sister. Our neighbors told us about a horse for sale nearby and we went to look at her.
Once I looked into her big brown eyes there was no way I could leave her! Dolly is a wonderful first horse, enduring with my lack of riding skills, and teaching me to be a better rider at the same time! The Lord has given me a great blessing!


HORSES

You can hear the thunder of hoof beats, under a starlit sky;
The soft nicker in the morning, when the sun is rising high.

You can feel the softness of a velvety nuzzle on your hand;
And the thrill that shoots through you, as you race across the land.

You can see you horses silhouette, as the sun is sinking low;
Their coats shining softly in the sun's warming glow.

You've loved them all your life, a dream, it seems, came at birth;
And all these dream-come-true- s, make you
feel like the richest girl on earth!

"Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart." Psalm 26:2

My show this weekend went ok. Rose and I had a pretty bad day. We had a lot of mistakes, but we were able to correct them. So we then just had bad times instead of "no times". We still got Reserve out of 3:) The 3rd place had one "no time" It wasn't too bad of a day. I still enjoyed it.

DROPPED BY TO SAY HELLO
Remember about my luck...well, we just got all tacked up ant started out to the ring, and yup, you guessed it, rain, what gives, it was just spitting, so we stayed out for half an hour anyway. The rest of the day was off and on drizzle. That is not what the the weatherman said. David made the letters out of feed tub lids and screwed them on to stakes, I'll tell him you all think it looks good. Charlie and I started dressage a couple of summers ago, remember I didn't ride last summer due to my arm, hope we have a good season this year. I can't afford a lesson every week, so I bought some MP3 download lessons from Jane Savoie's website, they are super. Talk soon, Love Donna Lee

With proper management, Dave rebounded from his PSSM episode and thrives on his low carbohydrate high fat diet along with a consistent exercise plan.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.....
Good Morning all, I managed to get thru the first week after vacation. The weather was just stupid this week, cold mornings, warm afternoons, HOT late afternoons and 3 days of showers in the late afternoon. I said before this full time job is gettin' in my way of fun time. No ride this week, and had to be careful of the rich grass because of the humid and wet conditions. We will have a ride this morning before it gets hot. Then maybe run the vacuum over and sit is the sun with a book, eh, sounds good to me. David made some dressage letters for my riding ring, I added a couple of pics, Love that man... We voted today, Love Donna Lee

I persisted though because I knew my horse. Finally Dave reached the point where he was sore to the touch. He'd pin his ears as I approached him & even threatened to bite. That was not my horse, the one who's usually up for anything, Mr. Optimistic.

I started leasing this goofball and went back to the basics. like walking (Because he didn't aacknowledge the "walk" as a gait.) Anyway, after i had been leasing him for a few months and taking the pattern slow, I finally got to call him my own. Now, here's where the journey with Dave really begins.

~ Dreams do come true... ~
One year ago, today, I was up early, a smile on my face I couldn't stop even if I wanted too. I peered down the drive way hours before the man would come. I walked the fence line, even though I'd done it a dozen times before. I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first horse. From five yrs. old I'd been a horse-crazy girl; and now I'd have a horse! It seemed like ages, but finally the man came. We owned a horse! We spent all day outside grooming, rubbing and loving our horse. That evening I sat outside as the sun went down, watching our horse graze in our front pasture. "Thank-You Lord. You've given me my dream!" I whispered into the fading sunlight. We got another horse not long after that, which made it all complete.
Today, one year later, we're spending the day together with our girls. We're going to have a wonderful time I know!
So today, I'll always remember that the Lord hears us, even a girl's wish for a horse.
Dreams to come true!

Come visit me, Dolly & Smart Lil' Cutter.

Although equine polysaccharide storage myopathy is a completely manageable disease, the consequences can be tragic if you don't manage it. That's why AQHA offers a genetic test to look for the presence of PSSM in horses,as well as four other genetic diseases: GBED,HERDA,MH, and HYPP.

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

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.

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.
