How We Met

My aunt originally purchased him as a yearly stud colt. She had planned to use him as a stud on her farm but then ended up gelding him after he was broke because he was so fun to ride. She ended up moving for work and he was put up for sale a year or two later. I went to the barn and got him out for a potential buyer (he ended up being too much horse for her) and I decided after riding him that day that I had to have him :).

don't forget to vote for Deacon on his page!
♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.

☆ Deacon’s registered name is “One More Special”, he surely is one special horse to me. Deacon was born with what people call a “prophet’s thumb”. It is an indention on the right side of his neck. I’m told it is from him lying on his hoof while in his mother’s womb. We thank you for your support during this HOTM run =) Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =) P.S. hoping to pick up Whiskey today!

Deacon would love your support for HOTM!
♡ after my kids got to be 15 and 16 (2008) we had a family talk about them getting new computers or me getting a horse. We agreed that I had gone long enough without having a horse! So a friend of mine that trail rides all the time helped me to find a good gentle gelding. She introduced me to Deacons owner/trainer Bill and I fell in love the moment I saw Deacon.. I know I got a late start but better late than never. On my days off work I will try to phone vote folks but please stop and vote Deacon even if I can’t get to everyone. I am getting his story together. This was a last minute decision I made soooo thank you for your support :)

♡ I was a very lazy lady yesterday. I pretty much just rested. I haven’t had a vacation sense February and it is surely getting to me. I can’t take any time off until after the 19th of September. I fed yesterday morning and just gave everyone a big hug and didn’t get back out until after 5 pm. I turned them out to graze awhile before evening feeding time. Here is a hug, love & a Wednesday vote :)

Thanks for visiting Gus. His picture is a few years old now and sadly he is no longer so gray - he gets whiter every year.

Buster is gorgeous! Are there appalossas with no spots?
