Just wondering if big Dee's new saddle arrived yet?
Hot and humid here. Mostly just been at work, but I'm off next week. Yea! Nothing planned, its hard to go anywhere when I have so many critters, but it'll be nice to have some time off.
Well, just checking on the saddle. Hope you have a good Wednesday.

Come visit me, allie & BJ and his mom,Gracie.

Yea! New saddle Monday is coming up. We've been so dry our grass is crunchy brown, but....ITS RAINING TODAY! Yea! A good hard steady rain. The horses are all doing fine. Even with the dry summer, I have to keep BJ and Gracie and the mini in a dry lot most of the day. They just get too fat so easily. Post some pics of your new saddle when it arrives. And yes, seems that penniless is how most of us horse people stay, thanks to said horses, haha. Take care.

Hi. Good to hear from you. Congrats on getting a custom saddle ordered. An Aussie stock saddle sounds perfect. You'll have to post a pic of Dee wearing it when it arrives. Glad you're getting to ride some this summer. I rode trails bareback as a kid but there's no way I'd do it now either. And yes, you have a looooong way to fall.
Its been hot here. The thermometer says 80's-low 90's F,which is about 10 degrees cooler than normal July weather, but for some reason, it feels like the sun is burning closer than usual. Just feels HOT. We haven't had much rain in the last couple of months, so our grass has stopped growing and it's crunchy.
I too am not riding as much as I'd like. Not sure why, the summer schedule has just been busy. BJ isn't doing so well in the heat this summer-seems like he overheats easily. Allie is growing and looking more like a horse. She's still short but she's getting a bit wider and more bone. Still a pest though, haha. She's the nosiest, most curious horse I've ever met. Always in the way and into something. And tons of energy. Hope she's quieter by the time its time to train her. She can jump like a deer, just high and effortlessly, so that may be in her future.
Well,glad you're doing well. Have a good weekend.
PS: the pony is a cute little guy too.

Dropping by for an overdue visit across the pond. How's your summer going? Too fast, like mine? How's Big Dee? Are you able to ride much?
My summer is busy. Have been able to ride some, but not as often as I'd like. Weather has been hot but not as hot as some summers. Horses are doing fine. They aren't getting too fat so everybody is sound.
Well, that's all my news. Hope you're doing well.

Thanks for the compliments. Someone asked if Allie has leg stripes so thats why i posted pics of them.Glad you're getting some riding in. I bet Dee is hard to find a saddle for. A friend has a mare with a broad flat back and she can't find a saddle that doesn't leave bumps on her back, so she rides bareback too. Can you make a nice bareback pad for him? That would be fun. Glad your shelter is coming along and you're enjoying your summer off. Take care.

Rode Darbs bareback yesterday, just a trail ride. He did good, plan on riding saddle today.


A genetic test was made available to horse breeders in 1992, and can id affected horses with virtual certainty. The simple blood test is available at the University of California at Davis School of Veterinary Medicine , Department of Medicine, or through the AQHA. Breeders were pressurised to show that Impressive bred horses were negative for HYPP,or to remove them from breeding.The lucky ones protect their investments by advertising their negative test results along with their stud services and sales. At the AQHA 2004 convention a motion was passed to set January 1st 2007 as the date after which foals testing homozygous for HYPP would no longer be registrable, with mandatory testing for HYPP for the descendants of Impressive. The Appaloosa Association followed suit and will disallow the registry of homozygous foals from January 1st 2008. The American Palomino registries have gone all the way and passes rulings against both homozygous and heterozygous HYPP horses, also beginning on January 1st 2007. Part and half-blood registries need to follow suit and pass rulings on both testing and registration . If enough pressure is brought to bear it might eventually be possible to eliminate this awful disease from the horse population , so that Impressive may be remembered forhis impressive legacy rather than his infamous one. Thay's the end of Impressive's story, hope everyone enjoyed reading it. Tommorrow i am going to share about my and Darby's goal.... Thanks for all the support so far!

Assignments hang over your head all the time, so its nice to be free for the summer. Glad Dee is over the sinus infection and is doing so well.
My herd is fine. BJ and Gracie are a bit fat, so they have only limited grazing time. Allie needed the green grass and looks good. She's a smart little filly.
Hope you get a lot of riding in and have a good weekend.

Impressive returned to the halter ring, winning 31 blue ribbons out of 31 attempts. Then in 1974, at age 6, he became the first World Champion Open aged halter stallion, with 48 halter points. Brown was offered 300,000 for him but refused the offer, saying "ain't no body in this world got enough money to buy him." Impressive was in demand as a sire, popular for his muscular and refined form. His stud fee was $25,000, he fathered about 2250 foals, including noble tradition, a four-time World Champion Halter stallion and a highly successful stud as-well.

The Story of Impressive: Impressive was a chestnut Appendix Qh colt. He was born on April 15 1968.He had royal Thoroughbred breeding on both sides of hi pedigree. He was set to become one of the most famous & successful quarter horses in history. Impressive had many owners, his price rising at each new sale. Dean Landers bought him for 20,000 at the Indiana state fair. He used him for a shoe horse for a few months. After owning Impressive for just 3 months Dean Landers sold him to Fennel Brown for 40,000. Fennel uses Impressive as a race horse. Unfortunately he was soon excluded from racing and other and other performance disciplines due to pedal osteitis. More Tommorrow, Thanks for all your support early in the month, Have a blessed day.

First i'm going to tell a little about the Appendix Quarter horse breed.


The Appendix Quarter Horse is a first generation cross between a registered Thoroughbred and an American Quarter Horse. There register a Appendix but not initially eligible for the full registration. The cross began it in Texas and quickly took place when the horse racing industry brought the Thoroughbred bloodlines into the Quarter Horse Association. Initially they were met with resistance by board members,but they relented to cross with the Thoroughbreds that that held the Quarter Horse type characteristies as long as they were registered seperately. Through the years and selective breeding the resulting cross is a larger,quicker animal with more refind features. Thanks for your support so far! More tomorrow...

I bet you can't wait for that beautiful bay color to shine through. Allie is shedding out her dun-colored winter coat, and that blue-grey grulla color is showing through. Will post pics when she's done shedding out. Hate to hear that Dee is still so snotty. Think he needs an antibiotic? Maybe he has allergies? Its a booger that you can't ride (pun intended).
My week hasn't been much fun so far. Work, daughter has a bad cold, I had to have an abcessed molar pulled, catching up on chores and errands. Yuck. Headed outside now to muck out the pens and then maybe ride a little. Finally. Hope Dee feels better soon and hope you're having a good Friday.

How's big Dee's sinus infection coming along? Hope you're seeing improvement. Have you been on him at all or is he still too sick? Been riding BJ some. He's so good and gives me his best every ride. I have to be careful to not get greedy and ask for more and more from him. Love that horse! I think Allie is gonna shed out grulla again instead of that dun color she's been all winter. Will post pics when she's through shedding.

We are fine. Allie did pretty good with her first hosing off and she is growing. All the other horses are getting too fat on the spring grass so I put them up at night. In the morning, they sure are vocal about wanting out again. Our weather has been nice. Have a small garden planted. Etc, etc.

How's Big Dee feeling? Hope much better.
We've been having beautiful weather, so I've been outside as much as I can get away with. Rode BJ yesterday and plan to again today. He's such a good boy! Allie is growing and has pushed the mini out of her spot in the pecking order, and the power has gone to her her head. She can be pretty aggressive towards poor Cinni Mini. I need to get allie used to fly spray, clippers, and baths this summer, especially fly spray. The gnats are swarming and seem to really target her, for some reason.
