How We Met

My uncle was the one to find McGraw for me. McGraw comes from an abusive owner who finally got tired of beating on McGraw and believed he was a "worthless dumb animal" . The owner was giving him away for free to anyone who would haul him off so of corse I hoped in my truck and made the 9 hour trip to hill country Texas! When I arrived I was overjoyed to see my gorgeous new baby boy my joy was short lived when I found how skittish he was and how many questionable scars he had. The next day I had the pleasure of meeting his horrible previous owner this guy was so stupid that when McGraw was refusing to load he actually tried to taze him to get him loaded!!! I was furious of corse I made the guy leave and after much patience and some bribing with treats I finally got McGraw loaded. The second he had all four hooves in the trailer I hauled but out of that place and neither of us have looked back. I'm just so relieved that McGraw is now a safe 9 hours away from that monster and I only wish it was farther..

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.

I rode Rose last night. We did some weaving. It was good.
I rode her bareback in her halter on Saturday. It was good:) I can now stop her with no rein:)
I had a lesson on Rose on Monday. We worked on Straights(one of the patterns) and Cloverleaf. It was good:)

My mom lunged Spangle yesterday. I lunged him the day before. He was pretty good.

I have a show this weekend with Rose. Will be prepping the next few days.

Extremely busy work day! I had a nice day off yesterday. I took a short ride on Whiskey and just turned them out for grazing to finish up some chores. Nice cool breeze this morning when I went to get in my truck to come to work, thought “hummmmm” I should call out sick and go riding lol :) I couldn’t do that thought….Here is a hug, love & a Wednesday vote :)

Hi McGraw, here's a vote for ya. Yep, don't worry that guy will get his someday, somehow and somewhere! Just happy that he's in a safe home now with someone that loves him to pieces. He's so jet black, I had a black thoroughbred stallion back in the mid 70's. Sure Swinger was his registered race name. He was so shinney! Just like McGraw's coat is.

☆ Friday I was able to ride Deacon & Whiskey about 30 minutes each early in the morning. Again it has been so hot as you all know! I just WTC and practiced back up and side passing. They were both good boys. Deacon is a dream to ride so smooth and easy, and Whiskey gets it but I have to work him a little more. Saturday and Sunday I just turned them out for grazing and that is about all. When I work it is so hard to do much else. Cheryl-Cisco’s mom told me about Freedom 45 (spot on fly control) and I applied it to the horses and saw an immediate relief for them-it is absolutely the best product! I still used SWAT under and by the jaw toward their mouths but other than that they have not stomped nor had to throw their heads toward the back end. Have a wonderful day! Whinnies, love & hugs ☆

Belated Congratulations on HOTD!
Storm hit hard about 11pm Sunday night. Heavy rain, thunder and multiple lightning. Beautiful! Our power was out for about 2 hours. Praising sweet Jesus that it's now on. Corral's a mucky mess. I let sassy butt out. She's free to plunder and get into things that are none of her business. She should be one happy butt for the next couple of days. Lol. Our water pressure's fixed, too. God is so good! Love and a vote.

Hey McGraw, wow I would love to live in TX then. And first thing I would do is get and tazer and taze that guy then for doing that to this horse or any other horse! In our state they are very illegal! He looks very content now in his new home. Glad that you are providing the kind of life he should have! Congrats on HOTD! and change his height to about 15.2, that's what he looks like to me. I have an eye for the horse!

He tried to TAZE him? I'd have reported him to the police or HS. Glad he now has a good, non-abusive home. My gelding, Cisco had been horribly abused before I got him (tongue nearly cut in half, R eye socket fractured). Don't know how it happened, but the evidence is there. Cheryl & Cisco

Hi!!!!!!!!!!!!
He kind of sounds like my old horse Diamond. We didn't actually see any abuse but from the situation he was in he was very obvious he was abuse. Oh also the scars on his legs said something about that.
I am so glad you found McGraw and are taking care of him the way he should be taken care of.
CONGRATS ON YOUR HOTD!!!!

I'm going with not believing the part about using a tazer on the horse! Tazer are illegal to own and hard to get! You have done a wonder job of rehibilitation on him. But he's also probably only 15.2 hands. No such thing as 16.7 hands. That would be 18.1 hands and he'd be a draft horse then!
