How We Met

I bought coy from a sale barn, severely under-weight and 'aced' (drugged) to make him behave. After about fifteen minutes of sitting around looking and talking to Coy, I decided to buy him. We took him home that night, and began Coy's journey back to health. He turned out to be a great barrel and pole bending horse, but very hot once you got him running. I had to sell him 2 1/2 years ago, he went to a great family that bought him to teach their kids to ride with.

On Wednesday I had a friend over for the night and for most the day on Thursday. She loves horses and used to have one so she knows how to handle/ride horses. We went riding Thursday morning with Misty and Sierra. My friend rode Misty and I rode Sierra. We rode around the fields on the tractor paths and back to the creek crossing. Misty went on through but Sierra didn't want to get her feet wet. I am planning to take her back there again soon to work on getting her to go across. We had a really fun ride and the mares were good. Later on we also rode Cherokee and Dakota bareback for a while. This morning I rode Sierra again and took her out around a large circular field near the farm. Around the bottom of the field it is dirt but there is corn planted around the top. We were trotting along on a loose rein around the dirt part when suddenly behind us something started crashing around in the corn field. Must have been a beef cow that got out. Sierra bolted into a dead gallop for a ways until we came to some tall brush and she swerved sharply back around. I just barely managed to hang on when she swerved. She settled right down again then and we went on our way around the field. We trotted some more and had a nice little lope. I was glad I was able to expose her to a "scary" situation. It seems like she has been getting bored working on circles and such in the pasture but she really seems to enjoy getting out and exploring new places. She has so far been doing really well not being barn sour or trying to get back to Misty. Any problems we encounter I am able to work her through pretty easily. I am still getting used to the fact that she is now my filly-I feel very lucky!
I have been working on Cheyenne's lunging and she has been doing really well. We are working on voice commands and reversing. She is catching on.
Hope your weekend is going great :)

♥ Bad winds blew my boys favorite shade tree in ½ yesterday morning. Sure do hate that for them. We had to keep them in our #2 turnout so they don’t eat the tree. We have someone coming today with a chain saw to cut it up. Than we have to carry it out. It is to wet to drive the trucks in the paddock…my wheel barrel is full of tree limbs already. Maybe I will stop and buy another wheel barrel! Lol Have a wonderful day ;)

Todays story is about a Thoroughbred horse named Warrior-a real life war horse(as told by Brough Scott.)

The incredible story of Warrior, the real-life War Horse, has long been a legend in our family.
Bred by my grandfather General Jack Seely in 1908, a couple of miles from his home at Yafford on the Isle of Wight, no horse and rider can ever have been through such a sustained series of adventures. They walked off the boat together at Le Havre in 1914 to join the Western Front, and cheated death a thousand times, surviving all four years of the war from Ypres to the Somme, Passchendaele and Cambrai before returning home where they continued to ride on together.
I’ve always thought it rather sweet and poetic that this sturdy bay thoroughbred gelding was christened Warrior because from the peace and tranquillity of the Isle of Wight where he grew up, he remarkably went on to become one of the greatest warriors of all time.

More on Warrior tomorrow...hope you all have a great day!

I had a nice ride on Sierra this morning, she did really well. She is getting better at loping now.
Thanks for supporting her in her run for HOTM!

So what’s Trash doing next? His years at stud (as of September 1998) have shown fewer than three dozen foals on the ground. There is a logical explanation; Many owners don’t want to breed their AQHA registered mares to non-registered stallions. If they do, their foals cannot be registered with the AQHA. On the flip side, the owners of paint mares are afraid of a foal with insufficient white markings.

But “Trash” wasn’t finished yet. In June of 1998, Bill Horn and Trashadeous traveled to the Bayer/USET Festival of Champions. Both spectators and contenders loved their performance, so Trashadeous might be able to compete again at a bigger level. The Horns hope that their stallion will be able to compete in the Cosequin/USET Reining Championships planned for this spring. The title will be a new one – the very first championship to be awarded in the newest USET sport.

Not only does Trashadeous demonstrate impeccable reining performance, he and his bloodlines also represents another larger moral. That ”One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.

Happy Mothers Day!

Early Americans closely associated themselves with the horse. Horse racing was their sport, horse trading their delight, and horse breeding, but a slight necessity, was in some respects their challenge. Consequently, the appearance of light, trim "blooded" horses in England had tremendous effect on American horsemen and horse breeding. Following the pattern set by the English for improvement of their racing stock by infusing a generous amount of Oriental blood, settlers in the eastern colonies brought in horses of Barb, Arabian, and Turk breeding.

lmportations of Paint Horses were relatively few and were for the most part of the Hackney and French Coach lines, which were by and large indirectly descended from the early English Thoroughbred foundation sires, the Godolphin Barb, the Darley Arabian, and the Byerly Turk. The painted horses of this blood were showy animals with a natural gait, making them excellent harness horses.

Have a great Sunday.

Stopping by with votes! I gave Katie a bath on Wed to help get all that winter dirt and hair off. I'm glad I did it because it's raining and windy now! Heading out of town this weekend to be with our mom's for mother's day. Erika (my daughter) got me some flowers for my new flower garden. Some Gerber Daisys and a red Columbine plus some seeds for Coneflowers. I'm sure the birds and butterflies are going to enjoy them!

Come visit me, Katie.

I rode Sierra for the second time yesterday. I rode her for a bit longer this time and worked on getting her to trot more. She is pretty lazy but she is catching on. We trotted some circles and then I took her around the pasture a couple times. I rode her in a bridle this time instead of a halter. I will try and get her to lope soon if I feel she's ready.

Old-timers like Frank T. Hopkins, probably the greatest long-distance endurance rider who ever saddled a horse, proved the virtues of the American mustang many times. A former dispatch rider in the United States Army, Hopkins developed his endurance-riding ability carrying dispatches for frontier generals and his horse-handling skill as a specialty rider in the Buffalo Bill wild-west shows. All in all, Hopkins won more than four hundred races in the late 1800's, when endurance riding was the rage, and for most of those rides he was mounted on a mustang.

One of the first proponents of the mustang and the Paint Horse, Hopkins became internationally known not only for setting unbeatable records in endurance racing but also for the excellent quality of the horses he rode. His ranch in Wyoming Territory was filled with a number of good western-type stock horses and one outstanding Paint Horse, Hidalgo. Described as a cream-and-white Paint Horse, Hidalgo was bred on a Sioux Indian reservation in South Dakota. Since he came into the world before the days of pedigrees and family lines, it can only be assumed that he was of "western stockhorse blood," and was descended from horses brought to this continent by the Spanish conquistadors. He was known as an American mustang and possessed the indefatigable endurance typical of the breed. Hopkins obtained the young Paint from the Sioux about 1882 and owned him until 1890.

Thanks for your support!

The Paint Horse was the Indian's favorite horse. He was variable and could be transformed to suit any surroundings or any season of the year. Simply by shading or rubbing out one color, his owner could easily alter the body colors. If the Indian wanted a dun or gray horse, he had only to darken the white areas of the body. For a light-colored coat the dark areas could be rubbed with sand or ashes and faded out. Many western tribes decorated their horses for battle with paint, feathers, and beads. As the warriors painted themselves with war paint, they also decorated their horses for the battlefield. The Paint Horse, already decorated by nature, added color to the visual spectacle, and in the heat of battle his colors would not run and blur as would those with paint added for the occasion.

Other tribes considered the colorfully marked horses magical and effective in conflict. The Comanches and Cheyennes, for instance, desired a type of Paint Horse which they called a Medicine Hat. This type of mustang, loudly splashed with color, was to them a prince of a horse. Only the braves who had proved themselves were allowed to ride them, and a Comanche warrior who rode a Medicine Hat into battle considered himself invincible.

Thanks so much for the votes, hope you all have a great weekend!

Decorated by nature, the origins of the Paint Horse in North America can be traced to the two-toned horses introduced by the Spanish explorers, descendants of horses from North Africa and Asia Minor. In 1519, the Spanish explorer Hernando Cortes sailed to the North American continent to find his fame and fortune. Along with his entourage of conquistadors, he brought horses to help his men travel across a new world in search of riches. He left behind a profound legacy - the bloodstock that would provide the foundation for a variety of unique, distinct, American-bred horses. According to the Spanish historian Diaz del Castillo who traveled with the expedition, there were two uniquely marked horses. One of the 16 war horses that carried Cortes and his men was a pinto with white stockings on his fore feet. The other was described as a dark roan horse with white patches. These were the first known recorded descriptions of early Paint Horses in the New World. These horses bred with native American mustangs and by the 1800's the foundation was laid for what is today the American Paint Horse breed.

Thanks so much for your support!
