How We Met

The story is somewhat extensive, but long story short:
Heard about this mini horse that someone didn't want because he was getting to be just a pain to feed or anything. His name was WarHawk. The husband wanted to kill him if he couldn't get rid of him. His wife, of course didn't want this to happen. She was very thankful that we could bring him home to live with us. It was a surprise that we were going to look at a horse. No one told me till we arrived, what we were doing or that we were even looking at a horse. At the time, we only had 1 acre of property that our house sat on. Instantly, once I saw Eli, I knew I wanted this little horse that had "problems".
Unfortunately the stress from the move caused him to start cribbing. he already had the problem of nipping, because he was spoiled rotten by the wife. another unfortunate thing was that I got Eli when I was 9. At that time, I was practically a know it all, read every horse book, etc. but never knew what to do with Eli. I named him myself... "Eli" short for "Elijah", but I was afraid of this little horse. Him and his nipping, even though I was the only one he seemed to like. He never tried to bite me, but my family had me scared to death of Eli and his nipping problem. Eli was a pasture ornament for 5 years. It is now nearing the 7th year Eli has been with us and now that I'm older, I'm not scared of Eli (probably because I am bigger than him) and I've come to understand him, and I think he trusts me. This year I have big plans for him. the past year or so I've been slowly working with Eli and now we're doing some property enhancements to further Eli's training. I'm really excited to work with him more. I've felt terrible letting him sit in the pasture. Now I'm determined to make that boy my "little buddy" no matter what it takes!

The new photos of Eli
*scroll to bottom of page below comments* (from left to right):
FIRST: A more recent photo of Eli in front of Cinnamon. SECOND: another recent photo of Eli in his NEW, bigger pasture where he lives with Cinnamon.
THIRD: When we first got Eli and the barn wasn't quite finished. FOURTH photo: Eli napping in the sun FIFTH: cart ride (that was a long time ago!) SIXTH: Eli in his stall SEVENTH: dinner time!

**May 7th is my birthday** (if the birthday on his papers isn't fake, as well as his papers)

~NEWEST PICTURE~
In Eli's album is a picture of his "injury". Cinnamon kicked him and scraped his face up.

Burr, we have it cold this morning...-18 below, with a small wind, but even that make it so much colder. Little ones were so glad to get nice warm water to drink. When the water buckets freeze over night, they are plenty eager to drink, after getting their grain. Next week, I see they are calling for rain, I would rather have snow this time of year. Hope, the weather mane is wrong. Have to go to a birthday party about 50 miles from here this afternoon. Surprise party for hubby's friend, so we will miss Mass this afternoon. Stay warm!!

Another vote from Whisper and the little herd. Our sunny sky are very misleading, because once I went outside it is bitterly cold with those sharp winds. But at least it is above zero, well, 1 is still above.

Whisper and the little herd are sending you a vote to share with your friends. A very cold vote indeed, probably still has ice icicles hanging on it. Was passed -12 this morning, burr I hate days like this, because I feel all the animals are cold too, but no one seems cold, all have fuzzy wuzzy on. Or not sure what feathers would be called.

So how is the "Little King" this morning. Ordering a bunch of treats for all his Horse Channel friends, well, that is what my little herd is telling me, and Whisper just snickers, and nods her head, Yes, Yes, Yes. I think I see her front legs crossed.

Sorry I'm on late. I had a full day, but fun. My sister and brother in law came up this morning to visit their daughter, my niece. We had a long breakfast visit, and then I had volunteered to help man the Marsh Tacky booth at the SC horse expo this afternoon. There were 2 Tackies there, and a lot of Tacky friends, new and old. One of them had an equine chiropracter look at her mare. It was interesting to watch one at work.
I got home with just enough daylight to ride Allie and work BJ. For some reason, when I asked for a lope, Allie kinda hit a fast lope and kept going and going and going. She never did slow down on her own, I had to stop her. It was kinda fun.
Hope you're having a good and horsey weekend too.

Yay! Corral panels are up. A friend helped me with them. She brought a 5 year old girl named Rosie with her. Lisa said Rosie has the mental capacity of a 2 year old. She brought a bag of carrots for Sadie and fed them to her. Rosie, also, rode bareback. My internet is running soooo slow. Taking forever to vote. Hope you're all doing well. Love to each of you and a vote.

Stopping by with a Wednesday morning vote! Monday I got in a ride on Copper. He did really well I've been working on his side passing. Then yesterday I just rode him bareback with my sister and Darby. Each day after our ride I hand grazed him on some rye grass for about thirty minutes or so. Sorry it's been a while since I've voted for everyone I've been really busy. Only been able to vote/blog for HOTM runners. Love and a vote! ~Brooke and Copper~

Hi Eli, here's a vote for ya. What a gorgeous day out today. Sunny and mid 40's! Wed rain all day, but the mid 50's before returning to more colder temps. Well today was Paige's first day of Marissa riding her since our last show. She's impressed with some things I've been working with and it's a big improvement, but I did let her get a little flat on her top line. So Wed I get a lesson in lifting and elevating that neck to round out the back. Of course this will be the opposite of my hands down and not above the horn. I'll be picking up on her to lift her. But Marissa said that what I worked on came along good. My steering off my leg and keeping my hand down and quiet! Always learning, it you're not, then you're not riding right! Indy gets a work out Wed also, before I go over there. Marion and the blondes.

Congratulations on HOTM! You did a great job. No horsey time (at least not much), high winds this afternoon, and the horses all decided to stay WAY out in the pasture. Did work with Jazz a bit with flexing and HQ yielding when I got them in for dinner, she is doing really good with both.

Hi Eli, Congrats on HOTM and here's a vote for ya. Well the temps was warm again, only 47 this time and overcast all day. But it sure beats 30 degrees and windy! LOL! Morning was devoted to housework, hate that job! Had the Slow cooker going with Chicken Dumplings in it. First time making that one and first time ever eating that! It was really good! Then I took some hay to the barn. Indy got to free play while I picked up all the poles and stacked them off the riding area. Now I can get the big tractor in on Tuesday and really drag the entire place good and make it nice and fluffy! Love fluff! LOL! Trimmed Bullseye's hind feet today. That's done for 4 weeks now. If I keep up with the rasp then, he don't need the clippers to them. Then it was up to the house and eat that fantastic meal I made myself. Got enough for like 5 meals out of it. Marion and the blondes.

The wind is horrible and cold. Rained last night. Sadie's corral is flooded, again. Rick's suppose to pick up my new corral panels today. Those panels will be connected on the west side at a slightly uphill angle. Should give her dryer space. Anxious to get the corral expanded, too. Have a wonderful Monday. Love and a vote.

One last HOTM vote!
I think you've got HOTM made. King Cimarron will be proud to hand over the crown to Eli!

About homeschooling, I gotta say the same thing about my friends. I still have no close friends the same age as me, and I find it easier to chat with people many years my senior. Not that I'm unhappy, though; I have a good life. Anyways, sending best wishes your way!

I've been hanging out with Cimarron, but he's not very happy with me right now because I gave him some dewormer. He started losing some weight and he's had loose manure for the last couple weeks, but he's got a bit of a belly on him, so I decided to give him his spring dose of Moxidectin early. I'm giving him some extra senior feed too. However, Cimarron hates taking dewormer. He was very uncooperative about it, and he was so upset that he wouldn't take the carrots I offered him afterwards. So, now I feel bad; Cimarron is really good at making me feel guilty.

This weekend is wonderful as far as temps are. In the 30's, but last night when we came out of Mass/Church, it was raining, which is never good this time of the year. Nothing seemed slippery this morning, so must not have rained too much. Getting a few more eggs each day....up to 3 now. Would like to start incubator up, but have to get a different rooster so just will not take the chance on getting deformed baby chicks. Whisper was right there this morning, waiting for her treats. Give her a candy cane each morning, and of course all the little ones get there cup of grain, well more like 2 cups. Whisper and the little herd are sending you and your herd a Sunday morning vote.
