Like the new profile pic. It was a nice day today, we made it 72. Good workouts with all 3, getting Meg (very suspicious) and Nugget (very interested)in the rhythm beads. Still have to go cover one bale of hay up in case it rains tonight or early in the morning.

Hi!
Left a vote!
Sorry I haven't been on for a little while. Please vote for Spangle he is running for HOTM. I will try and leave votes more often and keep everyone updated on the horses.

Rose and I have started taking lessons with the dressage trainer at my barn. We had our first lesson this past week. It was fun. I think Rose is really good at dressage:) I rode her bareback the other night. We worked on a dressage excerise I was given.

Spangle had been quite happy eating hay and grass. He hasn't been worked much, but he should be started up working again.:)

About Prince Teton
Breeder Rodney Nardelli must have smiled when he first saw the handsome little colt born to his mare. I like to imagine the little guy bouncing and bucking around his mama, then pausing to check out this new creature that leans over his stall door. He would have looked much like he does today, strikingly handsome, with loads of presence, the kind that makes passersby stop, back up, and have a second look. Nardelli chose a name that was a neat combination of his sire, Teton Forest, and dam, Princess Sequoya, and fit the little horse perfectly. Prince Teton. Prince Teton grew to a whopping 16.1 hands high, but the way he carries himself makes him seem like 17 hands at least. At two, this horse went into racing training and, with the right jockey, he could win anything. He sustained a sesamoid injury which put him off the track for a while, but before long he was back in the winner’s circle. In all, He won 12 out of 27 races and placed second or third in quite a few of the 15 he didn’t win. He won about 150,000 dollars. When he was six years old, his trainer retired him and put him up for sale. A man in Crittenden, KY bought him, seeing his win history and hoping to put him on the track again. Here was Prince Teton’s disaster. This man was a scrooge, caring only for money and nothing else. Prince Teton suffered. He lost weight, and his beautiful black hair faded to a pale bay. He lived in this awful barn for a year and a half. Meanwhile, my horses were coming along nicely, and I was looking for a new challenge.

About Prince Teton 2
I got the idea to buy an OTTB (off the track Thoroughbred) and train him for eventing or show jumping. I discovered Canter USA. I was scrolling through the ads, looking at so many beautiful horses, but none of them really “clicked” with me. I absentmindedly scrolled past the ad for Prince Teton that his former trainer had posted. Then, like many people had already done, I snapped to attention and scrolled back. My mouth dropped open. Here was a beautiful, handsome horse, dark brown, almost black, his awesome tail literally dragging on the ground. He was well filled out, well-muscled, and stood erect and proud, gazing into the horizon. His eye had a soft, kind look to it. I checked his pedigree. Impressive as well. I took down the number, even though the ad was old, and I didn’t think I could ever get my hands on such a horse anyway. I called his trainer, and he gave me Teton’s new owner’s number, saying that he thought the horse was for sale again. I contacted the owner, and we arranged for me to go see him. At the sight of Prince Teton, I deflated. His ribs were jutting out from his sides, his color was pitiful, and he had scratches all over his body. His eyes were dull and lifeless. I could have cried. I didn’t want to take on a horse like that, I wanted to start training right away, but I knew this horse desperately needed help, and I knew what the right thing was to do. I took Prince Teton home. I kept him away from my other horses until he was wormed and pronounced disease free. Then I let him out with my mares. They bonded right away and he became the lead stallion. I began to play vet right away. A trip to the real vet revealed that he had a mild urine infection due to dehydration and some skin problems, and he was treated for that. I took home lots of supplements and advice. I gave him a bath. I fed him sweet feed packed with supplements every day. Prince Teton responded by getting worse. I began to despair. He was losing his hair, his weight was going down even more, and he seemed even more depressed. I continued to fight for his life. Finally, after almost two months, he began to respond. His hair grew back to a dull black, but at least it was black. Slowly, slowly, his ribs covered up.

About Prince Teton 3
The most encouraging thing was the spirit he regained. We bonded quickly, and he began a daily routine of galloping madly around the pasture, bucking and sending huge chunks of dirt flying from beneath his pounding hooves. His eyes once again, had the peaceful, kind glow. The first time I rode him he proceeded to run away with me, but I persevered, and he is learning to slow down. He does well over ground poles and soon I will start him over jumps. He still has some minor skin issues, which are slowly clearing up, and he has bouts of colic which keep him on digestive supplements. But he is doing so much better than he was a year ago! The bond between us is very strong, and my Teton Boy would do anything for me, and I for him. He wants so much to please. He would probably try to climb a tree if I asked him to. He’s very intelligent, and when I introduce new concepts to him, he figures them out very quickly. It does me good to see him heartily eating his feed or strutting around in the pasture like royalty because I know what he’s been through and how he can now enjoy a good quality of life. He has some fears that I can only guess why he’s afraid of them, like hay racks and pliers. He is learning to face those fears, because in my barn they are only tools, and not something to be afraid of. I think Teton has a bright future ahead of him. He has a good jumping build and he obviously has natural talent because whenever he gets the urge he hops over his pasture fence and tries to find me. Once he starts jumping, I will find a rider for him and his first competition will be the Thoroughbred horse show in Lexington, KY, designed especially to start the OTTB in his new career. I’d like to encourage anyone looking for a new horse to find one who needs help. There are too many out there who need help and don’t get it. So many horses live their lives out in terror and hunger. As equestrians, we need to do all we can to help our companions.
